An exceptional opportunity to acquire this characterful and most handsome Grade II Listed Georgian family home situated in a charming conservation area next to St Wilfrid's Church, a short walk to an excellent range of amenities in Northenden, but also situated off the beaten track on Ford Lane, a quiet road which leads down towards lovely walks on the River Mersey close to the pedestrian bridge crossing to Didsbury village. Full of history, with lots of nooks to explore, this lovely family home offers beautifully proportioned rooms and a great sized family garden.
The accommodation is accessed via the stunning front doorway and comprises a spacious entrance hall, a beautiful dual aspect lounge with 3 Georgian windows and a lovely fire surround, a separate dining/ family room with an unusual feature wall with a number of small alcoves and which is rumoured to be the room in which the first Catholic Service in Northenden was ever held! At the rear of the house is a large living/ dining/ kitchen which spans the entire width of the house and has 2 sets of double doors which open directly onto the rear garden. At one end is a lovely living space with a recently installed wood burning stove, whilst the lovely kitchen with a central island occupies the opposite end. From here a useful down stairs WC is accessed, and there is also access down to a good sized cellar room which again has a number of unusual alcoves and amazingly a Priest Hole (now blocked off) which would have led through to the Church across the road!
On the first floor the lovely turning staircase leads to the main landing, with a large Georgian window flooding the space with natural light and giving access to the master bedroom with 3 windows, built in wardrobes and access through to a stunning and contemporary en-suite shower room. Off the landing areas you will access a further 3 generous bedrooms, 2 of which have a linking door and a spacious family bathroom.
Externally there is gated access down the side of the house providing ample off road parking and which leads through to a generous family garden complete with paved patio areas, a good sized lawn section and a further play area at a slightly lower level.
