This impressive three-storey, three-bedroom townhouse was formerly part of the Alexandra Temperance Hotel & Coffee Shop. The Victorian temperance movement offered the working classes a place of relaxation, free of alcohol; particularly pertinent given the plethora of public houses at that time.

The dining room has stairs to the first floor and there is plenty of space for a dining table chairs. There is a an attractive exposed brick chimney with a redundant fireplace, with which could be restored if required (subject to the relevant constraints). At the front of the property is a sitting room which has a window to the front aspect and a offers space for furniture.

The first floor accommodation comprises a landing with the bathroom and bedroom 2 off. The bathroom includes a modern white suite of W.C., wash hand basin, bath and a separate enclosed shower. Bedroom 2 is a good sized double with a window to the front aspect and is similar in size to the master bedroom. The second floor accommodation comprises a small landing with the master and bedroom 3 off. The master bedroom is situated at the front of the property with a window to the front aspect. Bedroom 3 is comfortable in size with a window offering a pleasant view to the rear garden and beyond.
