The accommodation briefly comprises covered porch, wide entrance hall, sitting room with inglenook fireplace, naturally light and spacious living/breakfast kitchen, dining conservatory with French windows to the paved terrace, ground floor double bedroom/reception room, shower room and separate WC. Three excellent bedrooms and bathroom/WC at first floor level. Gas fired central heating and double glazing. Further potential to convert the loft space subject to approval.

Semi rural location a little over three miles from Altrincham town centre.

Constructed circa 1928 this substantial semi-detached family house is positioned in an enviable semi-rural location with the benefit of views across open countryside to both the front and rear. It is hard to imagine approximately three miles to the east lies the comprehensive shopping centre of Altrincham with its highly popular Market Hall which contains a variety of small independent retailers and informal dining options. The property is also well placed being within easy reach of the Trans Pennine Trail and the National Trust's Dunham Massey Hall and Park.

The superbly presented accommodation has been extended and improved by incorporating quality fittings whilst retaining much of the original character including panelled doors, spindle balustrade staircase and decorative ceiling mouldings. Recently installed modern enhancements include maintenance free, flush fitting windows by "The Residence Collection".

Immediately upon entering the feeling of space is readily apparent with a welcoming reception area leading onto an outstanding living/breakfast kitchen with hand crafted units, polished granite work surfaces and matching centre island complemented by a vaulted ceiling with full height glazed gable overlooking the delightful rear gardens. An adjacent dining conservatory is approached through bespoke bi-folding doors and is ideal for formal entertaining with the added advantage of French windows opening onto the stone paved rear terrace. Furthermore, there is an elegant sitting room with the focal point of an attractive inglenook fire place and ground floor double bedroom/reception room served by a fully tiled shower room and separate cloakroom/WC.

At first floor level there are three excellent bedrooms and well appointed family bathroom/WC. There is also further scope to create a substantial primary suite within the roof space, subject to obtaining the relevant approval.

In addition, planning permission has been granted for a ground floor extension. Trafford Planning Reference 103134/HHA/21.
