Property Description

A fine semi detached Edwardian house with accommodation arranged over four floors and attractive landscaped grounds. Occupying an ideal location within the South Hale Conservation Area adjacent to the village centre. Retaining much of the original character and charm. The accommodation briefly comprises covered porch, entrance hall, cloakroom/WC, sitting room, living room, breakfast kitchen, conservatory, four cellar chambers, principle suite with dressing room and shower room, five further bedrooms and two bathrooms. Gas fired central heating, pressurised hot water system and extensive double glazing. Parking within the wide driveway.

Draycott is an individually designed Edwardian house fronting to Prescott Road and attached to a similar property on Leicester Road. Each is constructed in stone, partially rendered and beneath pitched tile surfaced roofs with interesting elevations creating, in our opinion, one of the most attractive homes in this possibly unrivalled location adjacent to the village centre.

Approached beyond a decorative timber framed porch with original panelled front door set within a matching leaded stained glass surround. The character continues to the interior with an elegant entrance hall featuring a stunning spindle balustrade staircase alongside unusual panelled doors and moulded cornices. The overall effect is enhanced by tall ceilings and sash windows and complemented by tasteful décor.

The grounds are also a feature having matured over the years. Laid mainly to lawn with surrounding well stocked borders, screened by hedges and a variety of trees and, importantly, with a southerly aspect to enjoy the sunshine throughout the day. The conservatory creates a feeling of almost being within the gardens and has been carefully designed to blend with the original building.

The two impressive reception rooms are of generous size and the naturally light dual aspect sitting room includes a wide bay window and grand period fireplace surround which and is ideal for formal entertaining. With the focal point of a wood burning stove set upon a stone hearth the living room provides adaptable accommodation and is suitable for more relaxed family living. The exceptional breakfast kitchen has been fitted with a range of hand painted Shaker style units and incorporates a centre island complete with integrated appliances. Double opening doors lead onto the conservatory and, being of such substantial construction with a pavilion style solid roof, is an additional living room throughout the year. Completing the ground floor is a well appointed cloakroom/WC.

The basement, although not waterproofed, has been utilised to include a games room, laundry room and gym. There is also a separate plant room and external access is provided from the rear.

At first floor level there is a spacious landing area and thoughtfully planned principle suite which benefits from a dual aspect bedroom, dressing room with beautiful fitted furniture and sumptuous shower room/WC. There are also two further bedrooms and luxurious family bathroom with contemporary fittings.

On the upper floor there is a further sizable landing area, three double bedrooms and traditional style bathroom/WC complete with free standing bath and separate shower enclosure. In addition, there is ample space on the landing for a study area and further potential to create an almost self-contained suite.

Gas fired central heating has been installed together with a pressurised hot water system and extensive double glazing. Importantly a new wall mounted gas central boiler has recently been installed.

Positioned in the South Hale Conservation Area this helps ensure changes respect the area’s character and appearance and protects the local historic architecture. Ideally located just a few hundred yards from the village of Hale with its range of individual shops and fashionable restaurants and railway station providing a commuter service into Manchester. The property also lies within the catchment area of highly regarded primary and secondary schools and is equally well placed for the surrounding motorway network and Manchester international airport.
