An exceptionally rare opportunity to purchase this vast five bedroom period family home on the extremely sought-after Lea Road offered to the market with potential for improvement and development throughout. Rarely do properties of this calibre grace the market, especially in a condition that allows the next owner to develop it to their own specification. Boasting a wealth of charming character features throughout and spanning almost 3500 square feet over four floors, this gem of a property is not to be missed with early viewings highly recommended.
Lea Road is situated just a five-minute walk from the high street on Heaton Moor Road that boasts a wealth of amenities including bars, pubs and retail outlets. Excellent transport links via the Heaton Chapel Rail station and trunk roads also make commuting convenient. In particular for family buyers, reputable local primary and secondary schools are also in abundance.
Entering through the front porch, the ground floor begins with a grand and imposing entrance hall granting access to all rooms on the ground floor and to the cellar areas. To the front, a spacious living room almost 19' deep features a characteristic bay window whilst to the rear, a second reception room currently serving as a reading/drawing room benefits from almost floor to ceiling windows. Completing the floor is a large, open-plan kitchen/diner including a contemporary kitchen and ample room to open the room up in the future to allow for a more modern floorplan. Access to the basement area which is almost equal in terms of size to the floorplan offers ample opportunity for extra storage and extensive development for the next owner.
Turning staircase to the grand first floor landing grants access to three very comfortable bedrooms each ideal for the growing family. The family bathroom completes the floor with a larger-than-average room complete with four -piece suite. A second turning staircase to the top floor permits access to the last of the two double bedrooms and a second bathroom consisting of a three-piece suite.
The vast majority of rooms enjoy characteristically high ceilings and large windows allowing for a light and airy feel complimented by original floorboards, and a wealth of other original features that include skirtings, coving and doors.
Externally, there are mature and very generous landscaped gardens to the rear comprised of a mixture of lawn and patio ideal for the growing family, which also permits access to the cellar area from the rear. Off-street parking may be found on the front driveway alongside mature gardens.
