Osborne Place is a terrace of just three properties positioned within The Downs Conservation Area and constructed in approximately the mid 19th Century with attractive brick beneath a slate tiled roof. A substantial conservatory has been added to ensure the benefits of the surrounding grounds are appreciated. The exceptional tree lined gardens are laid mainly to lawn with surrounding well stocked borders and the advantage of sunshine throughout the day. Importantly there is ample off road parking accessed via the shared driveway from New Street.
The front elevation is enhanced by tall bay windows and typical of the era the interior is complemented by Victorian features including panelled doors, cornices and decorative ceiling mouldings. More recently timber framed double glazed sash windows have been installed and the rooms are of generous size widening toward the rear. With the focal point of a period fireplace surround and cast iron insert the elegant sitting room benefits from a dual aspect and the dining room is ideal for formal entertaining. A rear hall provides access to the parking area and leads onto the replanned kitchen which now allows space for a breakfast table. Completing the ground floor accommodation there is also a cloakroom/WC. In addition the lower ground floor is currently used as an office and may be suitable for those who choose to work from home.
At first floor level the principle bedroom features a comprehensive range of fitted furniture alongside a further double bedroom and modern bathroom/WC. On the second floor there is guest suite comprising double bedroom and adjoining shower room/WC with white suite and chrome fittings.
Gas fired central heating has been installed together with double glazing.
It is hard to imagine the shopping centre of Altrincham is on the doorstep with its highly popular Market Quarter 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. Equally just a little further is the fashionable village of Hale with its range of restaurants, wine bars and individual shops. Nearby is the exceptional Altrincham Grammar School for girls with Altrincham Grammar School for boys, Loretto Convent and St Ambrose being other highly regarded educational institutions in the locality as are the primary and preparatory schools.
