Parkgate is an exclusive development of a small number of unusually spacious apartments constructed in a traditional style surrounded and screened by mature tree lined grounds. The location is ideal with properties of varying age and design combining to create an attractive setting. The shopping centre of Altrincham is approximately a ½ mile distant with its highly popular Market Hall that contains a variety of establishments including small independent retailers and informal dining options. Also well placed for the surrounding network of motorways and the Metrolink station provides a commuter service into Manchester.

The grandeur is readily apparent with steps leading up to an imposing private entrance comprising panelled front door flanked by ornamental columns with decorative arch above incorporating a fanlight window. Upon entering the feeling of space is palpable with a substantial reception hall connecting to an elegant sitting room with broad bay window, tall ceilings and coved cornices complimented by bespoke fitted furniture. Completing the ground floor accommodation there is also a utility room and cloakroom/WC.

The lower level of this duplex apartment is approached via a turned spindle balustrade staircase and an inner hall precedes the superbly proportioned dual aspect dining kitchen which is fitted with a comprehensive range of matching units and integrated appliances. The impressive master suite benefits from customised furniture, separate dressing room and en suite bathroom/WC complete with twin washbasins. A further double bedroom with built-in wardrobes is currently used as an additional living room and is served by the adjacent shower room/WC.

Gas fired central heating has been installed together with timber framed double glazing.

Importantly the driveway is only shared with the adjacent property and provides access to the garage by means of a remotely operated door.

Although standing within well tended communal gardens the property also benefits from a private south facing stone paved terrace approached from the master bedroom through French windows set within matching side-screens of the glazed angular bay.
