Property Description

An extended and replanned Victorian semi detached family house positioned adjacent to open countryside and set within exceptional grounds. The superbly proportioned accommodation briefly comprises entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, living room, conservatory, kitchen, ground floor shower room/WC, lower ground floor office/family room and utility room, four bedrooms and bathroom/WC. Gas fired central heating, photovoltaic panels and double glazing. Driveway providing off road parking and detached garage. Lawned gardens to the side and rear with raised decked seating area and paved terrace. Ideal location approximately half a mile from Timperley village.

This early Victorian semi detached family house was constructed circa 1850 and occupies an enviable plot with extensive surrounding gardens which include a raised decked seating area and paved terrace which is ideal for entertaining during the summer months. In addition, it is hard to imagine whilst being situated within this semi rural location that the village of Timperley is a little over a ½ mile distant with its range of individual shops, convenience stores and restaurants. The position is ideal for the surrounding network of motorways, Manchester International Airport and lies within the catchment area of highly regarded primary and secondary schools.

Typical of the era it is difficult to appreciate from the exterior the extent of the accommodation within and much of the original character remains with tall ceilings and decorative ceiling mouldings complemented by modern fittings. Positioned to the front is a formal sitting room with the focal point of a period style fireplace surround whilst to the rear there is a dining room with attractive revealed brick fireplace and glazed door to the al fresco entertaining space. The kitchen is fitted with light wood units alongside a range of integrated appliances and also provides space for a breakfast table and chairs. Forming part of the extension the spacious living room is approximately 23' in length and benefits from a triple aspect creating a natural light interior. The adjacent conservatory overlooks the mature grounds and the ground floor is completed by a shower room/WC.

The lower ground floor comprises superb utility room with access to the rear and, importantly, an additional reception room which may be used for a variety of purposes. Furthermore, there are areas which may be utilised for storage.

At first floor level the excellent primary bedroom benefits from commanding tree lined views across neighbouring fields and there are three well proportioned interconnecting bedrooms, which may be utilised as required. Finally the modern bathroom is equipped with a white suite and chrome fittings. There is a further double bedroom at second floor level plus substantial eaves storage.

Gas fired central heating has been installed together with double glazing. 18 photovoltaic panels and a 9.5 kWh battery allow the property to minimise electricity charges. In addition 4 solar water heating panels on the roof lessen use of gas - especially during summer.

Externally there is ample off road parking within the paved driveway and detached garage beyond. Gated access leads to the exceptional side and rear gardens which are laid mainly to lawn and surrounded by a variety of mature trees to create a private and attractive setting.
