WOW - WHAT A PROPERTY !! - JUST FULL OF UNIQUE CHARACTER FROM START TO FINISH
A CHARMING BLEND OF TASTEFUL DECORATION MIXED WITH MANY ORIGINAL FEATURES & PLEASANT SURPRISES
THIS IS A 'ONE OFF' PROPERTY WHICH MUST BE VIEWED INTERNALLY - FORM A QUEUE !!
We are extremely pleased to have received instruction to sell this remarkable three bedroom end terrace property which just oozes character and charm through the whole of the property, offering a very pleasing and unique mix of extremely spacious accommodation, many original features, rustic and random charm, tasteful and appealing decoration, and not forgetting the many 'WOW' features along the way.
The property is a short walk to the village centre and is extremely convenient for everything that Prestwich has to offer:- The village centre with its increasingly eclectic mix of bars, cafes and restaurants together with its many independent and corporate retailers is literally only a short walk away. The metrolink network has its nearest station in the village centre and Manchester City Centre is about 15 minutes away and is easily accessibly by either car or bus. The property is on the doorstep of many open spaces and parkes and Prestwich Clough, Drinkwater Park & St Phillips Park are all within easy walking distance. For those needing to travel further afield, the M60/M62/M66 motorway networks are all on the Prestwich/Whitefield border at jct 17 of the M60.
Sometimes words and photographs do not give full credit to the property and we feel that this property certainly falls into that category, consequently we would recommend contacting the office and making an early appointment to view.
The property is heated by gas central heating and is fully double glazed, all the plantation shutters and light fittings are to be included in the selling price.
As you enter the property at the front you are straight into the hallway and cannot fail to notice the length of the property through to the dining area and kitchen at the rear, it is over 60' in length from the front to the rear of the property. The first part of the floor is tiled and this extends to the original boarded floors which run through the majority of the property on both levels, these are the original floorboards which in part have been vanished and part painted. The original covings and corbells are still evident and the staircase with its origional newel post runs off to the right to the accommodation on the first floor. Like the floors, the staircase is all exposed timber, which again has been part varnished and part painted. This is a lovely first impression of the property.
The door on the left leads you through to the first of three large reception areas, which is the lounge with its plantation shutters to the windows and decorative coving to the ceiling, the feature of the room is the wood burning stove which stands on a flagged hearth in the recessed chimney breast with a large wooden mantel shelf above which was a railway sleeper in a previous live.
The dining room is the next room and slightly smaller, with its polished wood flooring, window looking out to the rear and decorative coving to the ceiling. As we move pack into the hallway you will notice that there are three storage cupboards of varying sizes which have been created on the underside of the staircase.
We are now into the third reception area which adjoins the kitchen and this could be used as a second dining room, breakfast room or just the social hub of the property. Again this room has the exposed floorboards, but this time they have been painted white and are enhanced by the rustic appearance of the exposed brick work and surface mounted metal conduits/sockets & switches to all walls, the exposed and painted steel to the ceiling and the school type cast iron radiator which sits just below the main window.
If the kitchen doesnt blow your mind then this is not be the property for you. Like the last reception area this room is so rustic in appearance and is definitely one of the many highlights of the property with its tiled floor, slightly pitched ceiling with velux rooflights and exposed brick walls with surface mounted water, gas and electrical plugs and switches. This bespoke fitted kitchen boasts a range of base units in dark grey with complimenting worktops and an inset sink unit. There are appliances to be included:- the John Lewis free standing range style cooker with its 5 ring hob, the industrial extraction unit above and the built in 'Chefs' horizontal fridge and freezer. This is an amazing room. Just picture ....... preparing your meal in here whilst entertaining your friends in the adjoining reception area.
There is a door from the kitchen leading to the large enclosed patio at the rear, this is fully enclosed and private, but the fencing at the bottom could esily be removed to allow parking for the car, having said that there is no shortage of parking as there is street parking at both the front and side of the property.
When you reach the first floor you have access to all the bedrooms and the family bathroom. The landing is very generous in size with a lovely original balustrade running along its length and an storage cupboard to one end. There is loads of light on the landing coming through from the ceiling light tunnelling down to the landing and staircase.
All three bedrooms are a very generous double size and as the main bedroom at the front is the largest with two windows to the front elevation, this could easily be made into to bedrooms, making four in total. The fully tiled family bathroom boasts a three piece suite in white with a shower over the bath and the style of this is totally in keeping with the rest of the property.
This is an exceptional family home which exudes a rustich character and charm throughout and we strongly recommend making an early appointment to view.
