Fantastic re-modelling/re-development opportunity in prime edge of Wilmslow location, set within about 4.42 acres of garden and paddocks
This landmark home is being sold on behalf of the estate of the late philanthropist and art collector Selwyn Demmy and was his principal home for many decades. As such it was a perfect house for entertaining and show-casing his collections, while the swimming pool complex in its sunken garden area features a large club house/ pool room with a bar.
In his later years Mr Demmy supported a number of animal charities and the paddocks and their outbuildings were created to accommodate donkeys and other animals, rare ducks on the pond and these could now be re-purposed.
The house has been designed to offer high levels of security and the accommodation includes an entrance vestibule leading into a hall with a cloakroom and WC. To the left the formal rooms include a sizeable dining room with a marble fireplace and a front bay. A wide opening leads through to the bar area with the drawing room beyond. This room is very generous and includes a stone fireplace, a feature stone wall and patio doors to the rear.
To the right of the hall is a snug/sitting room with a dual-aspect and patio doors to an air conditioned conservatory with a bar area, views over the gardens and a tiled floor.
To the rear of the hall, separated by a contemporary splayed staircase, is the large air conditioned living dining kitchen area with glazed conservatory style roofing and tiled floors this is flooded with natural light.
The main living area is centred around the kitchen which is raised above the surrounding rooms and includes an island, granite surfaces, a range cooker and integrated appliances. This main living area includes an informal dining area, seating areas and connects via a staircase off to the first floor office or sixth bedroom with an en suite shower room.
The family entrance hall lies on the east side of the house with a second cloakroom and w.c. and to the right of this entrance is a large second kitchen/laundry with tiled flooring and access to the rear to a boiler room and boot room area.
The gallery landing leads to the five bedrooms including the large principal suite with fitted wardrobes and a dual aspect. A dressing room with fitted cupboards and an en suite bathroom serve this room and there is dual access from the second bedroom for the bathroom.
There are three further double bedrooms, two with vanity wash hand basins and all with fitted wardrobes. These share the well-appointed house bathroom. The sixth bedroom or office lies off a separate staircase from the kitchen and would be ideal for guests, staff or as an office suite.
In addition to the main house there are a range of outbuildings including a large single garage with an adjoining dog washing room, stables, stores, chick houses, feed stores and wooden sheds plus three store rooms.
The outdoor swimming pool lies at the rear of the formal gardens in a sunken garden area and possibly requires some re-commissioning. A pool and filter house with a changing room and shower lies alongside the pool. Within this area is a large club house/pool house, perfect for parties, with a bar, cloakroom and w.c.
The spectacular grounds include ponds and fountain areas, , lawns, specimen trees and a gated driveway fronts the property. The paddocks extend to the east of the house and gardens and well to the rear beyond an outside private entertaining area for barbeques away from the main house.
