Parva Cottage presents a rare opportunity to acquire one of just a handful of mid 19th Century Grade II listed homes forming part of 'The Grove' or 'Watts's Folly', built by James Watts of Abney Hall, a beautiful selection of most attractive and characterful properties, tucked away down a private driveway with residents parking within the St James' Conservation Area, close to Didsbury Park and Fletcher Moss Botanical Gardens and just a short stroll to Didsbury village. Retaining many of its original features and with excellent room sizes over 3 floors, the property also offers further potential to convert the loft if desired. Bound to appeal to those downsizing from a larger family home, as well as young professionals who love period features and a prime location, we urge an internal inspection to get a real feel for the scope of accommodation available.
Approached via the private garden frontage and stunning original front door with stained glass leaded lights, the accommodation comprises a spacious hallway, a sizable lounge with a feature fire place and overlooking the front garden, a separate dining room with French doors leading out to the rear garden and an opening through to a well fitted galley style kitchen with a large window overlooking the rear garden.
On the first floor the landing leads to 2 double bedrooms, both large enough to comfortably hold freestanding wardrobes and a spacious family bathroom with a window opening onto the attractive decorative front balcony.
At basement level there is a large full height room, currently used as a study with built in cupboards/ wardrobe and a small window to the front and a separate utility room which also houses the central heating boiler.
Externally the property is surrounded by beautifully tended and most attractive gardens with high hedge borders surrounding the main garden at the front which enjoys a delightful southerly aspect. The garden extends down the side of the house via gates to the rear enclosed courtyard garden which houses a corner timber shed and has an attractive walled surround. A parking space is positioned directly in front of the property at the end of the Grove.
