Slade Lane, Levenshulme, Manchester

Offers in excess of £200,000

Chain Free. A rare opportunity to purchase a charming and characterful property in the Rushford Park Conservation Area, recently named by the Sunday Times the best address in Levenshulme. This unique two bedroom property was built in 1863 and includes a separate 250 sq ft studio/workshop full of potential for conversion into a home office, art/music studio or supplementary living space. A spacious basement just three steps down from ground level offers further possibilities for extending the living accommodation.

Steps lead up to the front door and a seating deck overlooking the walled garden. The kitchen has ample storage and incorporates a set of brass-handled drawers from an old library. The Vaillant combi boiler was installed in 2014. The kitchen annexe offers a breakfast seating area and an unusual oriel window. The spacious fully carpeted living room has a handsome Edwardian fireplace with mirror and working open fire. The large west facing sash window, as with all others in the house, was rebuilt thirty years ago in the style of the Victorian original.

An open plan staircase leads to a wide landing with hatch access to a fully insulated loft space. The generously proportioned main bedroom features a plaster cornice, picture rail, cast iron fireplace with mantelpiece, sash window overlooking the garden, and a good sized walk-in cupboard. The second bedroom has a south facing window looking out over mature trees and back gardens. The bathroom features an original stained glass window giving borrowed light to the landing, and a claw foot cast iron bath with stylish new taps.

This freehold property is ready to live in though some areas renovated in 1989 would benefit from a little TLC. Some items of furniture in keeping with the style of the house could be included. Externally there is a mature garden, with gravelled off street parking for two cars. A stone patio area gives access to the large cellar/basement with the same footprint as the living room, with York stone floor, Belfast sink, washing machine connections and power points. A separate fuel store is accessed from the side of the house. The studio building features two sash windows and mains water and electricity. The entrance door faces west with space for a sunny seating area in front.

The house is set back from the road and has the feel of a hidden gem. A ten minute stroll round the block reveals a leafy world of mature trees and well kept period properties, with West Point Gardens a five minute walk away towards Burnage. Levenshulme has its own weekly artisan market as well as a growing number of independent coffee shops and bars. The direct rail service to both Manchester Piccadilly and Stockport links within ten minutes to the national network, and nearby bus routes serve the city centre, Chorlton, the Trafford Centre and MediaCity.
