***** NO UPWARD CHAIN *****
A rare opportunity to purchase a magnificent 5 bedroom, double fronted Victorian era semi detached home. This unique residence was originally built in 1847 by a local brewer, Peter Greenall and first owned by the Bishop family who were prominent local glassmakers in the town. It is evident that the home has lovingly cared for through the years and it retains much of its original character with many of its period features perfectly preserved. Our clients completely refurbished the property in 2007 (including a re-wire, central heating, new kitchen and bathrooms) and have presented the property to a very high standard and the result is a beautiful collection of elegant living spaces all tastefully decorated and finished.
Resting in a prominent position overlooking beautiful Victoria Park a lovely local park which has recently been subject to a major refurbishment funded by the Heritage Lottery. The handsome facade of the home gives some indication as to the quality on offer and once inside guests will continue to be impressed with the spacious interiors being bathed in natural light and displaying an abundance of fine details with plaster coving’s, high ceilings, solid wooden flooring, and a gorgeous spindled staircase just some of its many highlights.
Living space covers an impressive 2594 square feet, with well-proportioned rooms arranged over three levels. Accommodation highlights include reception hallway, an impressive 22ft main lounge with three large picture windows and an open fire, the sitting room also has an open fire and the wonderful dining room which is situated just across the hallway has dual aspects, is of a really good size and ideal for formal entertaining. The family dining kitchen affords an array of solid wood units having granite work surfaces, a Belfast sink unit, range oven and integrated appliances. A two-piece cloaks/WC and a practical utility room complete the downstairs living areas, whilst on the first floor there are four beautiful double bedrooms along with a single bedroom/study, there is a quality three piece en-suite shower room in white to the master bedroom and a three piece family bathroom (again in white) with stand-alone claw foot bath. The accommodation is rounded off with a well-proportioned cellar and from the first-floor landing stairs leading up to attic space which offers even further potential for more living space.
Outside there are gardens to the front and rear, with the rear being private, South facing and having mature borders, a lawned area and paved patios for outdoor dining. To the front there is ample parking on the gravelled ‘in and out’ driveway and access to the gated side elevation. Other benefits of this wonderful home include gas central heating and partial double glazing. This really is a special home of outstanding quality and a rare addition to the market which should be viewed early to avoid disappointment, and to fully appreciate the full size of the accommodation.
