Dating from 1876, this timelessly attractive 5 bedroom 4 bathroom detached Victorian home enjoys prime Wilmslow positioning. 3,338 sq ft and extensive cellars.
Constructed in 1876, the sale of this charming detached Victorian residence in the heart of Wilmslow represents a particularly rare opportunity for prospective purchasers. Over the past five years the current owners have commissioned an extensive yet sympathetic program of refurbishment, remodeling and extension resulting in an exceptional home which now seamlessly blends period charm with modern convenience. Works have included re-roofing, re-wiring, re-plastering and re-pointing, future-proofing the property for many years to come. The property retains a wealth of original period features such as sash windows, cornicing, deep skirting, picture rails and paneled doors.
Approached via the pedestrian gate or the electrically operated double gates, a long gravel driveway provides extensive off-road parking alongside the landscaped front gardens which are screened by established hedging to the front boundary. The property stands in an elevated position with stone steps and wrought iron railings leading to the front door. An entrance hall of grand proportions makes a lasting first impression. To the left is the bay fronted drawing room featuring a stunning original marble and green slate open fire. To the right is a second reception room, currently used as a sitting room/snug. The highlight of the accommodation is the impressive L' shaped split level open plan living/dining/kitchen with vaulted ceiling and bi-folding doors onto the gardens. The bespoke in-frame' kitchen by Harvey Jones of Wilmslow is arranged around a central island offering an informal dining space. The kitchen is appointed with quartz work surfaces, Villeroy & Boch sink and a comprehensive range of appliances including Bosch microwave/grill, Stoves seven burner range, Quooker boiling water tap, dual-temperature wine cooler, integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The ground floor is completed by a downstairs WC and an indulgent principal bedroom suite featuring a vaulted ceiling and French doors onto the rear gardens, served by a dressing room and a contemporary en suite shower room with underfloor heating.
To the first floor the galleried landing leads to four well-proportioned bedrooms and a beautifully appointed family bathroom with slipper bath, separate shower, underfloor heating and a walnut vanity unit. Two guest bedrooms both benefit from modern en suite shower room facilities with underfloor heating.
Worthy of note are the extensive cellars which are currently split into five chambers offering tremendous storage in addition to a utility room. There is tremendous potential for full conversion and would be well-suited for use as a games/cinema room and a gym.
Externally to the rear the walled gardens are mainly laid to lawn and enjoy a high degree of privacy. A covered timber deck adjoining the living/dining/kitchen bi-folding doors provides an ideal space for outdoor entertaining.
