Property Description

A unique detached family house replanned, extended and refurbished to a high standard throughout. Set within landscaped grounds extending to approximately ¼ of an acre. The exceptionally well presented accommodation briefly comprises recessed porch, entrance hall, cloakroom/WC, sitting/dining room with feature fireplace, cinema room, living/dining kitchen with sliding windows to the rear terrace, utility room, principle bedroom with dressing area and en suite shower room/WC, four further double bedrooms and family bathroom/WC. Gas fired central heating and double glazing. Carriage driveway with remotely operated gates. Detached home office/gym and garden room.

Swallows Barn is positioned within arguably one of the finest residential locations and occupies a superb site measuring approximately ¼ of an acre. Constructed to an individual design this unique detached property has recently been the subject of a comprehensive program of refurbishment together with carefully planned extensions resulting in outstanding accommodation, tastefully appointed and enhanced by many refinements including a hand painted Shaker style kitchen, sumptuous en suite shower room and luxurious family bathroom alongside exquisite bespoke fitted furniture.

Set back beyond a carriage driveway with remotely operated gates the exceptional landscaped grounds feature a substantial home office/gymnasium and separate garden room with bar and ample space for socialising. In addition, the substantial paved terrace has been thoughtfully designed to incorporate a number of seating areas and is ideal for entertaining during the summer months. The manicured lawn is complemented by integral lighting to the borders and benefits from a high degree of privacy with aspects that capture the sunshine throughout the day.

This remarkable detached family house has been replanned and the centrepiece is a stunning open plan living/dining kitchen with adjacent utility room and grand sliding windows opening onto the gardens. The naturally light and spacious sitting/dining room is suitable to receive formal guests and also leads onto the rear terrace through bi-folding windows. Importantly there is a cinema room with integral media unit and well-appointed ground floor cloakroom/WC.

At first floor level the dual aspect principal bedroom has the added advantage of a dressing area, fitted furniture and en suite shower room/WC. Four further double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes are served by a centrally located family bathroom/WC complete with free standing bath and separate walk-in shower.

Gas fired central heating, air conditioning and double glazing has been installed together with underfloor heating to the living/dining kitchen and bath/shower rooms.

Positioned in close proximity to open countryside it is hard to imagine the village of Hale with its range of individual shops and restaurant lies just one mile distant and a little further is the award-winning town of Altrincham with its highly popular Market Hall that contains a variety of establishments including small independent retailers and informal dining options. The Metrolink station provides a commuter service into Manchester and the area is well placed for the surrounding network of motorways and Manchester airport.

It is difficult to appreciate from the outside the extent of the beautifully presented accommodation within and an appointment to view is a rewarding experience.
