There is a driveway for two cars with a gate leading to the rear garden which is a real sun trap and it has a large timber shed with power and light. Added advantages include gas central heating via radiators, double glazing and recently refitted carpets and flooring. Blending Victorian charm and character with more modern fittings, the home is really a one off. It’s been given a unique style and carefully restored to bring out many of the original features to include, stripped wooden floors, Victorian radiators, original tiled entrance porch floor, and restored old doors and door furniture. Built in 1895 and used for 100 years as a bakery and shop, ‘W.J Pitcher’, Avenue House holds a wealth of history. During this time, every corner house on Albert Road was used as a shop, which ranged from a leather shop, sweetshop, farrier, and bakery. These corner houses were larger than the other houses in the road, with owners working downstairs in the shops and having their living accommodation upstairs. The Bakehouse (at the rear of the Avenue House) was sold in the late 1980’s and converted into a family home.
