Guide price £1,300,000

An extremely rare opportunity to acquire a most substantial and imposing detached residence occupying a prime south facing plot on one of Didsbury's finest roads, Old Broadway. Boasting mature gardens to three sides, a private road which extends down the side of the property and extensive living accommodation with impressively proportioned rooms across three floors. Being just one of four properties enjoying one of these substantial corner plots, this is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a large detached home with huge scope for renovation. The property would benefit from modernisation throughout, however a wealth of stunning period features have been sympathetically maintained such as original fireplaces, stain glass windows, parquet flooring and stunning coving and cornice detail.

The accommodation comprises in brief; entrance porch, stunning reception hall at the centre of the property, folding doors open up to the formal dining room complete with feature fireplace and large windows with garden aspect. A separate living room which spans over 22ft, with a large corner bay window and access through to the sun room, which makes the most of south facing position. The kitchen features modern fitted wall base units and ample space for relaxed dining, there is a generous utility room and two large stores also off this space. To the front of the property is a further reception room with large leaded bay window.

Off the stunning reception hallway, stairs ascend to the first floor which accommodates five true double bedrooms off a spacious central landing with feature window to the side elevation. Four of the five bedrooms feature built in wardrobes, whilst the master bedroom measures over 19ft and benefits form a four piece en-suite bathroom. A main family bathroom can be found off the landing and comes complete with four piece suite and linen cupboard.

At basement level useful cellar chambers can be found, these are ideal for storage and offer to potential for formal conversion if desired.

In addition to the main house are two detached garages/workshops which can be accessed from the private road which runs alongside the side wall of the garden.

Externally the property has impressive roadside presence with attractive red brick elevations and wall and hedge borders around the grounds. Mature gardens wrap around the property to three sides with a footpath leading to the entrance and down the side of the property.
