Property Description

A semi detached period house retaining much of the original character and charm, positioned at the head of a quiet cul de sac and with private south facing rear gardens. The well presented accommodation briefly comprises enclosed porch, entrance hall, sitting room with feature fireplace, dining room, morning room, fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, shower room/WC, primary bedroom with generous en suite bathroom/WC, four further bedrooms and family bathroom/WC. Gas fired central heating and double glazing. Garden room and attached double garage with electric door. Block paved driveway and landscaped grounds. Ideal location less than half a mile from Hale village.

This attractive semi detached period house is positioned toward the head of a quiet cul de sac. The location is highly sought after being less than a ½ mile distance from the centre of Hale with its range of individual shops, fashionable restaurants and train station and also lies within the catchment area of highly regarded primary and secondary schools. A little further is Altrincham town centre 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 well placed for the surrounding network of motorways.

Constructed to a traditional design in brick with partially rendered elevations beneath a pitched tile roof complemented by attractive gables and bay windows. The original period features have been retained such as a grand staircase, coved cornices and panelled doors enhanced by tall ceilings and tasteful decor.

The superbly proportioned accommodation is well presented throughout and approached beyond an enclosed porch with wide entrance hall beyond. There are two spacious reception rooms including a naturally light sitting room with stunning fireplace and French windows opening onto the paved rear terrace and separate dining room which is ideal for formal entertaining. Toward the rear a morning room leads onto the Shaker style fitted kitchen with integrated appliances and access to both the attached garage and rear gardens. Completing the ground floor is a shower room/WC.

At first floor level the excellent primary bedroom has the added advantage of an unusually large en suite bathroom/WC. Two further double bedrooms and generous single bedroom are served by the modern family bathroom/WC. Positioned on the upper floor is an additional double bedroom and storage room with potential to create a suite incorporating a shower room/WC.

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

Externally there is a substantial attached double garage with electrically operated door and wide block paved driveway providing off road parking. The delightful gardens are certainly a feature having been landscaped with a stone paved terrace, mature borders and well tended lawn. In addition, there is a garden room for occupation during the summer months and importantly with a southerly aspect at the rear to enjoy the sunshine throughout the day.

NB: Provision has been made for inclusive access which includes a lift operating from the entrance hall to bedroom four.
