Property Description

A magnificent duplex apartment forming the ground and lower ground floors of an early Victorian mansion house. Much of the original character remains with 11 feet (3.35m) high ceilings, period features and fireplaces and rooms of elegant proportions. Reception area, cloakroom/WC, magnificent dining hall, adjacent sitting room with French window to the paved terrace and private garden, open plan living room/kitchen re-fitted in a contemporary style with integrated appliances, principle ground floor bedroom suite of spacious double bedroom and shower room/WC, two further en-suite double bedrooms, study, laundry room, store room and detached double garage.

Wonderful location within Victorian Altrincham and well positioned for access to the market, schools, transport etc.

Northlea was originally constructed in the mid 19th century as a substantial individually designed detached residence surrounded by mature tree screen grounds.

In the late 20th century the property was extensively refurbished and re-planned to incorporate two self contained apartments each with their own entrance and apartment 1 retaining the majority of the grounds.

The accommodation extends to approximately 254 sq mtrs/2734 sq ft and incorporates the principal entertaining rooms benefitting from tall ceilings, moulded cornices, panelled doors and superb fireplaces all of which combine to create a unique home of generous size.

A covered porch opens into the reception area with the cloakroom and WC and walk in closet. Beyond is the superb dining room from which folding glazed doors open into the adjacent sitting room. Here a French window leads to one of the paved terraces and lawn.

In recent years the open plan kitchen/living room has been re-planned and fitted with an extensive range of contemporary style high gloss units incorporating a range of integrated appliances. The ground floor is completed by a spacious principal bedroom and e-suite shower room/WC.

From the dining hall an open staircase leads to the lower ground floor which incorporates two further double bedrooms with en-suite facilities, study, laundry room and large walk in store.

Externally the accommodation is completed by a brick double garage with a remote control up and over door.

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

The gardens are a feature lying on the southerly and westerly sides incorporating two terraces, and lawn screened by a variety of mature trees and bushes.

The shopping centre of the market town of Altrincham was a little less than a mile distant with the ever popular market, range of shops and restaurants and the Metrolink station providing a commuter service into Manchester and surrounding areas. A little further distant is an access point to the M56 motorway. Within the area are highly regarded primary and secondary schools.
