Three-bedroom property with palatial Roman-style living room listed for £300,000

A THREE-BEDROOM property with a palatial Roman-style living room has been listed on the market for £300,000.

The terraced semi-Roman home in Christchurch, Dorset was listed on the market on Tuesday.

The large living room takes up over half of the downstairs and its main feature is a detailed ceiling painting that depicts angels flying and sitting on clouds.

The depiction is bordered with round gold and blue trim with various patterns.

A bust of a woman stands tall at the back of the room, while gold trimmed patterned chairs and couches are positioned next to the light blue walls.

There is a marble coffee table that sits on an old fashioned royal-looking carpet whilst a large gold rimmed mirror hangs on the back wall.

Breaking the Roman theme, there is a flat screen TV hung from the wall and a guitar amplifier resting on one of the chairs.

Leaving the lavish room, the rest of the house appears to be far more common.

The kitchen is of a good size and has a double glass door that leads to the garden.

Two of the three bedrooms are of good size and can comfortably accommodate double beds, while the third room could only fit a single bed.

The only bathroom in the property is situated upstairs and has a large bath and a separate shower.

In their listing on Rightmove, Goadsby, who are managing the property wrote: “A spacious terraced home situated in a popular area being just yards from Two Riversmeet Leisure Centre with its golf course.

“Christchurch town centre is also easily accessible.

“There is a covered entrance porch which has a storage cupboard, a door leads through to the Lounge.

“The Lounge is a good size with a front aspect window.

“A door leads through to the Kitchen/Breakfast Room which has ample space for a dining table whilst also having a good range of wall and floor cupboards with working surfaces over…

“There are 2 doubles, both having fitted cupboards and Bedroom 3 is currently used as an office.

“The Bathroom benefits from a corner bath with separate shower cubicle, pedestal wash hand basin and low level w.c.”
