Property Description

The Beeches occupies an enviable setting within tree lined grounds ideally positioned for both the centres of Hale and Altrincham. This apartment benefits from the grandeur of the original mansion house and unusually features a private rather than communal entrance. The accommodation briefly comprises enclosed porch, entrance hall, sitting room, living/dining kitchen, utility room, primary bedroom with dressing room and en suite shower room/WC, further double bedroom and bathroom/WC. Externally there is a garage and reserved parking space approached beyond remotely operated wrought iron gates. Delightful views of the gardens in southerly direction.

The Beeches is an exclusive development of apartments formed from a substantial Victorian residence further developed in a sympathetic style to create an architecturally interesting building surrounded by well maintained tree lined gardens.

Situated within one of the most prestigious positions in the heart of the Bowdon Conservation Area the location is ideal being within half a mile of the village of Hale with its range of fashionable restaurants, bars and individual shops and railway station providing a commuter service into Manchester. Equally, the more comprehensive shopping centre of Altrincham with its highly popular Market Hall and Metrolink station is approximately one mile distance and Bowdon is well placed for access to the surrounding network of motorways and Manchester International Airport.

Approached beyond remotely operated wrought iron gates this apartment stands in a slightly elevated position and occupies part of the original mansion house. The interior incorporates many period features including tall ceilings, panelled doors and intricate cornicing, with rooms of generous proportions complemented by modern enhancements such as gas fired central heating and double glazing. Importantly the accommodation benefits from a private entrance with leaded light stained glass front door set beneath a fan light.

Upon entering the feeling of space is apparent and the impressive porch leads onto a grand entrance hall with decorative corbels. The sitting room is adorned with a stunning stone fireplace surround and contemporary brushed steel fire basket and tall bay windows overlook the manicured grounds. Positioned toward the rear is a superb open plan living space with Shaker style fitted kitchen featuring a range of integrated appliances and providing ample space for a dining suite alongside a naturally light seating area with views in a southerly direction.

The primary suite comprises spacious double bedroom with comprehensive range of fitted furniture, dressing room and sumptuous en suite shower room/WC. There is a second double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and luxurious bathroom/WC.

Externally the garage has the added advantage of a remotely operated door and there is reserved resident parking within the development.
