Historic Home in the Shadows of the Abbey
The property at 10 Abbey Water is situated in one of the most sought after spots in the town and is rich in history. It was built in the late 18th century and in 1781 it was home to the Clerk of the Justices. At the turn of the 19th century it became one of a growing number of Dame Schools where women teachers taught young children often in their own home.
These days the semi-detached Grade II Listed house is a fine family home with five bedrooms and wonderful double length drawing room with French windows that open on to the garden terrace.
There is also a sitting room and a vaulted kitchen/breakfast room. All the main rooms have kept original features and a number of distinct architectural details. These include fireplaces, moulded cornicing, dado rails and polished wooden floors.
Dougal Trentham, partner at our Romsey office said: “The property could suit a great range of potential purchasers, it is ideal for a family or suitable for a more mature couple looking for one of the finer homes in the centre of this historic market town.”
The property has been much loved by its current owners who have lived there for more than 40 years.
Abbey Water is part of the town’s conservation area and is only 150 yards from the Market Place.
