PROPERTY DETAILS


DESCRIPTION

This fine Edwardian family home lies within the heart of the conservation area and The Downs has long been one of the most sought after locations, not least because of the attractive setting. In addition the shopping centre of Altrincham is approximately 500 yards distant with its highly popular Market Quarter containing a variety of establishments including small independent retailers and informal dining options. The Metrolink station provides a commuter service into Manchester and the area is also well placed for the surrounding network of motorways. The location is also ideal being within the catchment area of highly regarded primary and secondary schools.

The accommodation incorporates rooms of generous proportions and great care has been taken to retain much of the original character which has been enhanced by tasteful decor and quality fittings all of which combine to create an exceptional home enhanced by tall ceilings, sash windows, coved cornicing and period fireplaces.

A superb wide entrance hall with an impressive turned spindle balustrade staircase provides access onto a sitting room with the focal point of a wood burning stove. There is also a separate dining room and both reception rooms benefit from solid oak flooring. Positioned to the rear a fitted breakfast kitchen with ample space for a dining suite benefits from direct access onto the delightful rear gardens.

The lower ground floor presents an excellent opportunity to create additional living space, subject to obtaining the relevant approval, and currently comprises three chambers with the largest including a utility area.

To the first floor there is a superbly proportioned master bedroom featuring a cast iron fireplace, two further double bedrooms with period fireplaces, a modern family bathroom and separate WC. At second floor level there are two double bedrooms and a bathroom/WC with separate shower enclosure.
