This semi detached family house was constructed during the Edwardian era to a traditional design in brick with partially rendered elevations beneath a pitched tile roof complemented by attractive gables, bay windows and leaded lights. The original period features have been retained such as a grand staircase, coved cornices and panelled doors enhanced by tall ceilings and tasteful decor. Importantly the ground floor benefits from a substantial extension creating exceptional open plan living space with underfloor heating and bi-folding windows opening onto a raised terrace with glass balustrade and steps down to the lawned gardens.
Upon entering the feeling of space is apparent and a wide entrance hall leads to the cloakroom/WC, sitting room with the focal point of a period fireplace surround and generous dining room which is ideal for formal entertaining. Toward the rear is a stunning Shaker style fitted kitchen with Neff integrated appliances and adjacent living/dining area with vaulted ceiling and wood burning stove stove set upon a polished granite hearth. The carefully planned utility room provides access to the garage and basement which comprises two chambers with one currently used as a workshop and the other for additional storage.
At first floor level the master bedroom has the added advantage of a modern en suite shower room/WC. There is another spacious double bedroom with contemporary fitted furniture, two further bedrooms and bathroom/WC fitted with a traditional style suite. Positioned on the upper floor are two further bedrooms of excellent size with commanding tree lined views and bathroom/WC.
Gas fired central heating and a pressurised hot water system have been installed together with double glazing.
Externally there is a substantial attached garage with remotely operated door and resin bound gravel driveway. The beautiful gardens are also a feature having been landscaped with stone paved terraces, raised flower beds, block paved pathway and manicured lawn all screened by mature borders with a fence perimeter.
Positioned toward the head of a quiet cul de sac the location is highly sought after being less than a ½ mile distant from the centre of Hale with its range of individual shops, fashionable restaurants and train station and also lies within the catchment area of highly regarded primary and secondary schools. A little further is Altrincham town centre 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 in addition the area is well placed for the surrounding network of motorways.
