Property Summary

A stunning and beautiful Victorian Villa, being one in a row of just five properties, situated on one of the most desirable roads in Bowdon, within reasonable walking distance of Hale Village with its range of fashionable shops, eateries and bars and Altrincham Town Centre, the Metrolink and the popular Market Quarter. In addition, the property is also within easy walking distance of both Altrincham Boys' and Girls' Grammar Schools.

The property offers extensive and versatile accommodation arranged over Four Floors including Converted Cellars, extending to approximately 3775 sq ft and is beautifully presented, having been maintained at an exceptional decorative standard throughout.

The accommodation provides Four generous Reception Rooms to the Ground and Lower Ground Floors, in addition to a Breakfast Kitchen, large Utility Room and Six Double Bedrooms over Two Upper Floors, served by Four Bath/Shower Rooms in total.

Whilst the property has been most tastefully updated, the current owners have been careful to ensure all of the stunning original features have been retained, include 11' high intricate, moulded plasterwork corniced ceilings, tall sash windows, impressive fireplaces, Bisque Victorian style radiators, tall pitched skirtings, decorative frieze work, and a spindle balustrade staircase with turned timber banister rising through the floors.

Externally the property enjoys a particularly deep Garden frontage and a long Rear Garden with vehicle access providing parking to the rear, completing the picture for a truly wonderful family home.

In addition, the property has the rare and valuable feature of a 17' x 15' Garage which is located a short walk away from the property.

An internal inspection cannot fail to impress. Comprising:

Original entrance door with leaded stained glass windows and fanlight window, to the Hall with intricate corniced ceiling, Gothic style arched opening towards the staircase leading through the floors, with a panelled and glazed door giving access to a further staircase to the Lower Ground Floor Converted Cellars. Inner Hall with Cloakroom and well appointed Ground Floor WC off, with CP Hart fittings with limestone flooring.

Beautiful Sitting Room with intricate corniced ceiling and 8' high, low sill windows enjoying a Front Garden aspect and featuring an impressive marble fireplace surround with open grate fire.

Dining Room, 8' low sill window overlooking the Rear Garden with an attractive fireplace with open grate fire.

Fabulous 300 sq ft Breakfast Kitchen with limestone flooring throughout and a large Dining Area with part glazed roof with French doors and multi paned windows giving access to and enjoying an aspect of the Garden. There is extensive, LED lighting throughout and the Kitchen Area itself has been refitted with a range of hand painted finish, custom made timber fronted units with granite worktops, and integrated or freestanding appliances that may be available to the incoming purchaser subject to negotiation, to include a Mercury stainless steel range cooker recessed into the chimney breast, a freestanding Gaggenau oversized stainless steel fridge freezer and an integrated dishwasher.

The Lower Ground Floor Converted Cellars enjoy generous ceiling heights, with extensive accommodation arranged off a large Hall area with low voltage halogen lighting throughout.

There is a large Family Room, with a full sized window opening to a light well providing much natural light.

Utility Room with stone flagged flooring, built in cupboards, sink and worktops with a door leading to the Gardens and having a Boiler Room off. There is also a well appointed Bathroom with Durvait and Bristan chrome fittings, with a white CP Hart suite, York stone flooring and brick bonded ceramic tiling. This enables one of the Lower Ground Floor rooms to be utilised as a Guest or Au Pair Suite.

The First Floor Split Level Landing has a staircase continuing to the Second Floor, an intricate corniced ceiling and a useful shelved storage and linen cupboard. At First Floor level there are Three Double Bedrooms and Two Bath/Shower Rooms.

The Principal Bedroom is a delightful double room with a window enjoying a front aspect and extensive, traditional design, custom built wardrobes. The Bedroom is served by a beautifully appointed En Suite Bathroom with a CP Hart Victorian style suite in white with chrome fittings, featuring a double ended bath with limestone tiled surround, CP Hart Victorian style shower fitting over with oversized 'Drench' showerhead. Chrome finish halogen lighting completes the room.

The remaining Bedrooms at this level are both impressive Double Rooms, one enjoying a superb original fireplace, both with attractive multi paned sash windows overlooking the Rear Garden. These Bedrooms are served by the Family Bathroom, again fitted with a CP Hart Victorian style suite in white with chrome fittings, featuring a cast iron claw feet, freestanding bath with CP Hart Victorian chrome mixer taps with oversized 'Drench' showerhead. Chrome finish halogen lighting again completes the room.

The Second Floor Landing has much natural light via a substantial skylight window, with a large shelved airing cupboard off. There are three further Double Bedrooms to the Second Floor, one of which is a wonderful Guest Bedroom with attractive sloping but not restricting ceiling heights, and windows enjoying far reaching views over the rooftops of Bowdon and towards the Cheshire Plains beyond. This room has built in wardrobes and has an attractive fireplace.

Of the remaining Bedrooms, one has an attractive multi paned sash window overlooking the Gardens, built in wardrobes and original fireplace, whilst the Sixth Bedroom has a large skylight window providing much natural light. These Bedrooms are served by a well appointed Shower Room, with a reproduction Victorian style suite in white with chrome fittings, 'Drench' showerhead and tumbled marbled tiling.

Externally, the front of the property enjoys a particularly deep, mainly lawned Garden frontage with a York stone path leading to the front door, with borders stocked with flowering shrubs and plants and enclosed with holly and beech hedging. There is a substantial tree towards the front boundary providing screening.

To the rear of the property there is a large York stone paved terrace, accessed via the French doors from the Breakfast Kitchen, which is enclosed with iron railings and steps leading down to the main Garden. There is a further York stone paved Courtyard and patio area running down the side of the property, with steps down to the lawned Garden area enclosed with timber fencing and climbing plants. The borders are stocked with a variety of shrubs, bushes, trees and plants, whilst to the far end of the Garden there is an additional large, York stone paved patio which also provides a vehicle hard standing approached through entrance gates, off the Driveway access from South Road.

When leaving the property turn right out of the gate, walk a few yards before turning left where East Downs Road returns to a short side road. Follow the road as it curves to the right and the Garage can be found directly ahead.

Overall, this really is a most wonderful family home of immense character in a location that is hard to beat.
