About this property

  • Styal House is an exquisite country home of significant heritage and stunning architectural merit. Built as part of a larger estate in 1862 by Manchester Cathedral designer, JS Crowther, the home belonged to Henry Russel Greg, president of Manchester College (Oxford University), director of the London and North-Western Railway Company and grandson of Quarry Bank Mill founder, Samuel Greg. The property is elegantly presented with a wealth of 17th century gothic architectural features, including large wooden framed windows, traditional doors and radiators, vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and trusses and the most magnificent oak framed porch and spectacular entrance hall reminiscent of a narthex.

    The property has undergone a sympathetic and tasteful program of refurbishment and restoration in recent years to create a remarkable immaculately presented family home. Modern design features include upgraded bathrooms, contemporary kitchen/living area, bespoke cabinetry and limestone and Ted Todd wooden flooring.

    The property offers beautifully proportioned and versatile accommodation extending to 3458 sq ft including garaging and outbuildings. Planning permission is in place to create an outdoor pool, annexe, gymnasium, garage with studio/workshop and additional parking, all designed by an award-winning architecture firm (21/3220M). Externally the property sits in the most glorious grounds in an enviable semi-rural location but also within close proximity to the local amenities.
    The property is approached via a sweeping gravel driveway providing parking for several vehicles and access to the detached timber framed garage and detached brick-built summer house/office and gymnasium.

    The property sits in 4 acres of extensive grounds and paddocks with attractive gardens with manicured lawns, established trees including apple, plum and pear trees and mature hedges and beautifully designed and cared for flower beds. Flagged patios and paths connect the gardens and house together and there are undiluted views of the countryside and livestock beyond including highland cows.
    The ground floor accommodation is entered through a superb oak framed porch into the spectacular entrance hallway with vaulted ceiling, bespoke cabinetry and seating. Lying off the hallway is a fully fitted home office and a contemporary bathroom suite with shower.

    To the left of the hallway lies the double aspect sitting room flooded with lots of natural light and complemented with stylish design features including bespoke cabinetry, vaulted ceilings and Ted Todd Natural Oak flooring. To the right of the hallway lies the most alluring living room, with large period windows, wooden flooring and the most charming inglenook fireplace with large timber mantel and cast iron multifuel stove. This delightful reception rooms leads into the open plan kitchen and formal dining room. The kitchen has been bespoke designed with contemporary modern units, stylish quartz work tops, integrated appliances including dishwasher and fridge/freezer, appointed around a central island with seating for informal dining. Completing the kitchen is an attractive white electric AGA, limestone flooring, all framed by traditional dual aspect windows. A fully fitted utility room leads through from the kitchen with space for a washing machine and dryer.

    To the first floor there are four double bedrooms and three bathroom suites including one en suite. All of the bedrooms enjoy a beautiful vista over the gardens and countryside beyond. The bathrooms all have modern design features including contemporary high quality sanitary ware and bespoke decorative tiling. For those seeking the tranquility of a countryside lifestyle with convenient links to Manchester, London and the airport, Styal House really should be viewed.
