Originally built in 1818, Avonstone House was extensively renovated in the late 19th century by the Navy.
And this former residence of the British Navy’s Fleet Admiral is now up for sale, featured on property website Rightmove.
The imposing projecting entrance porch is an example of the embellishments made in the late 1800s with its traditional molded frieze, bracketed cornice and urn parapet.
The facade has the characteristics of Georgian elegance with symmetrical lines around a central four-storey bay window.
The main entrance and reception hall set the tone for the rest of the house, with immense gravitas and style, it is also blessed with an abundance of natural light. This theme continues throughout the house.
