Originally constructed in the early 19th Century and added to over the following years, 41 South Street is a surprisingly spacious and unique period home. 

The characterful façade, described by Historic England as ‘a curiosity in its decorative details’, hints at the quirky home to be found beyond the front door.

Beautiful period features such as the sash windows, cherubs overlooking the street, timber mouldings, wood panelling and the three winding staircases further enhance the rare uniqueness of the building.

This charming home comprises of a welcoming entrance hall which leads to two bedrooms, one of which is en-suite, and a rear lobby plus a large store on the ground floor, a lounge, kitchen/breakfast room and a shower room on the first floor, with two further bedrooms and a cloakroom on the second floor. 

The third-floor attic room has been used by the current owners as a fifth bedroom, and outside there is a surprisingly private courtyard garden.

The property is entered via a traditional front door, surrounded by period mouldings and finished in a heritage green, leading into the welcoming entrance hall.

Original mouldings and details run through the hallway and doors lead to bedroom one, which is en-suite, bedroom two, into the rear lobby and on to the storage area, while a staircase leads to the first floor.

There is an integrated stainless steel sink and drainer with mixer tap and an integrated electric oven and hob, with a matching extractor hood. 

There is also a shower room on the first floor, with a smart chrome and glass shower enclosure, a white vanity basin and  a matching low-level WC with dual flush.

The second floor is home to bedrooms three and four, another cloakroom and to a staircase to the attic.

The attic room on the third floor has a vaulted ceiling which does restrict head-height, but this room has far-reaching views over the rooftops to St Georges Down and Carisbrooke.
