We are delighted to bring to the market this imposing four bedroom, double fronted semi-detached family home, occupying a commanding corner position at the junction of Meadfoot Avenue with the upper part of the ever popular Bishops Road in Prestwich.
With plans dating back to 1932 and the build being completed in around 1935/36, this well maintained property has had very few owners and has been in the same family for the last 40 years.
Step in through the front door and enter into the spacious hallway with feature Edwardian style paneling and an adjacent useful cloaks cupboard along with access to the lounge, dining room and breakfast kitchen. To the front of the hall, flanking the entrance, are the beautiful original leaded windows, encased in more modern sealed units.
To the left from the hallway entrance is the dining room. This is of a good size and proportion, with feature fireplace and ample space for a family dining set. To the right of the hall you have the through lounge. The large bay window to the front fills the room with light and the feature electric fireplace provides a nice focal point. To the rear of this room there is a patio door which gives access to the side and rear gardens.
Discover the heart of the home, directly ahead from the entrance hall. The breakfast kitchen has been opened up since the original build, now combining what was the scullery with the original kitchen. There is plenty of scope to create a fabulous breakfast room, perfect for the modern family. Within the kitchen you have the original larder, cupboard housing the boiler (which was installed in 2018) and there is access to the rear garden. Accessed from the rear garden and adjoining the kitchen, there is a wash house, integral with the whole building and complete with power, water, sink and WC.
Take the staircase up to the landing, with minstrel style gallery, where there is access to the four bedrooms. The two largest bedrooms have adequate space for the addition of en-suites if required. Serving all 4 bedrooms is a bathroom with separate WC, which could potentially be opened up to create a good size family bathroom
Outside, Number Seventy Five Bishops Road nestles comfortably within the well maintained and generously sized gardens that surround it. For keen gardeners, it could be a haven. There are mature lawns, attractive shrubs and other plants. A raised bed and other spaces presents an opportunity for vegetable patches or further decorative gardening. There is a greenhouse and single detached garage (both of which are in need of some repair) but are very useful. The driveway is accessed from Meadfoot Avenue and although currently for one vehicle, it previously accommodated three, which could be easily re-instated by the simple removal of some fencing panels and posts
This is one of the largest built semi detached houses on Bishops Road, and indeed in the wider area, and is very accessible; all the essential amenities you might need including local schools, houses of worship, retailers and Heaton Park are on your doorstep and Manchester City centre is a mere 3 miles away
For a true family home, ripe with potential, gardens to three sides, and spacious rooms, Seventy Five Bishops Road has it all.
