Property Description

***NO ONWARD CHAIN***
A fine Victorian detached house with accommodation arranged over four floors and attractive landscaped grounds. Occupying an ideal location within the South Hale Conservation Area adjacent to the village centre. Retaining much of the original character and charm. The accommodation briefly comprises porch, entrance hall, cloakroom/WC, sitting room, dining room, family room, breakfast kitchen, utility room, four cellar chambers, WC and wine cellar, master suite with dressing room and en suite bathroom, four further double bedrooms, two bath/shower rooms. and home office. Gas fired central heating and pressurised hot water system. Ample parking within the block paved driveway with detached garage beyond.

This individually designed Victorian detached house was built circa 1898 and retains many of the original period features all of which combines to create a superb family home in possibly an unrivalled location adjacent to the village. Standing in a slightly elevated position the property features attractive twin gables and bay windows flanking a decorative entrance with the original panelled front door set beneath tall leaded light windows. The character is continued to the interior with a stunning spindle balustrade staircase alongside panelled doors within moulded architraves and coved cornices. The overall effect is enhanced by sash windows and original fireplaces complemented by tasteful decor.

The reception rooms are of generous size and the naturally light sitting room includes a wide bay window and grand period fireplace. With the focal point of a cast iron fireplace the dining room is ideal for formal entertaining and there is also a family room with access to the gardens. The spacious breakfast kitchen has been fitted with a range of quality units and the adjacent utility room also connects to the basement. Completing the ground floor is a cloakroom/WC.

The basement, although not waterproofed, has been utilised to include a games room, laundry room with WC, pantry, workshop and wine cellar. There is also a separate storeroom and additional access is provided from the enclosed porch.

At first floor level the elegant master suite benefits from a dual aspect double bedroom, dressing room with fitted wardrobes and contemporary en suite bathroom/WC complete with separate shower enclosure. There are two further double bedrooms with cast iron fireplaces and traditional family bathroom plus WC.

On the upper floor there are two superbly proportioned double bedrooms with commanding tree lined views, shower room/WC, home office and storeroom. Although currently used as studies and a photographic darkroom there is potential to create a self-contained suite.

Wi-Fi controlled gas fired central heating has been installed together with a pressurised hot water system.

The exceptional gardens are certainly a feature and great care has been taken to create a high degree of privacy with the use of mature screening. Laid mainly to lawn with well stocked borders and importantly a southerly and westerly aspect to enjoy the sunshine throughout the day and into the evening. A long block paved driveway provides ample parking and leads to the detached brick-built garage with remotely operated door.

Positioned in the South Hale Conservation Area this helps ensure changes respect the area’s character and appearance and protects the local historic architecture. Ideally located just a few hundred yards from the village of Hale with its range of individual shops and fashionable restaurants and railway station providing a commuter service into Manchester. The property also lies within the catchment area of highly regarded primary and secondary schools and is equally well placed for the surrounding motorway network and Manchester international airport.
