This fine semi detached Victorian house retains many of the original period features complemented by a sympathetically designed extension at the rear to form contemporary open plan living space. The accommodation has also been improved with a carefully planned basement conversion and both combine to create a superb family home set within beautiful landscaped grounds. The attractive front elevation with angular bay windows set beneath a traditional rendered gable and decorative covered porch also incorporates the original panelled front door. The character is continued to the interior and includes spindle balustrade staircases, tall ceilings and coved cornices. The overall effect is enhanced by natural wood flooring and stunning fireplaces.
Upon entering the feeling of space is apparent and the wide entrance hall leads onto an elegant sitting room with the focal point of a cast iron fireplace. Positioned toward the rear a dining room with French windows opening onto the raised decked seating area is adorned with an impressive period fireplace alongside decorative tiled inserts. The generously proportioned living/dining kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of modern units and also provides access to the substantial raised deck through aluminium bi-folding windows. Completing the ground floor is a modern cloakroom/WC.
The lower ground floor is currently configured as a stylish cinema room and gym/studio with the opportunity to be utilised as a home office should you choose to work from home. Furthermore, there is a fitted utility room and original chamber with restricted head-height, but ample space for storage.
At first floor level the excellent primary bedroom benefits from fitted wardrobes and luxurious en suite shower room/WC. Two additional double bedrooms are served by the sumptuous family bathroom/WC complete with walk-in shower. The second floor has been planned to establish a suite comprising double bedroom, shower room/WC and dressing room or alternatively two bedrooms both with access to en suite facilities.
Gas fired central heating has been installed together with a pressurised hot water system and timber framed double glazing.
The exceptional rear gardens need to be seen to be appreciated and are ideal for entertaining during the summer months. The aforementioned raised deck seating area is almost the full width with glass balustrade and steps down to a manicured lawn flanked by raised flower beds. There is a secondary decked seating area with adjacent artificial lawn and timber framed outdoor bar. Importantly the aspect is in a south easterly direction to enjoy the sunshine throughout the day. Externally at the front a driveway provides off road parking for several vehicles.
The location is ideal being adjacent to the award winning shopping centre 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 equally well placed for the surrounding network of motorways. Also positioned within the catchment area of highly regarded primary and secondary schools and less than half a mile to the north is John Leigh Park with tennis courts and recreation areas.
