What we like
"The character of this beautiful home captured us. We love the original features and rather spacious entrance hallway. However, we've picked the original Victorian Verandah in the rear garden. Sit here, shaded in the summer and curl up with a book. It's picture perfect.
The ground floor
From entering through the solid traditional front door into the welcoming entrance vestibule and through to the spacious central hallway, visitors cannot help but notice that this is a grand home and one full of features. The traditional vestibule features the original mosaic tiled floor.
Throughout the ground floor, the ceilings are high, a character feature of the home's era. Skirting boards are deep and the ceiling cornice is intricate. All are original features.
The bay fronted sitting room to the front of the home is just one of the living rooms in this home. This classical room with its walk-in bay window, features stripped original wooden flooring. The ornate fireplace creates a central focal point. It's the perfect place to entertain friends.
Overlooking the garden there are two further reception rooms. Look up at the cornice and it is evident that these two rooms used to be one large room. This could easily be re-created. Working sash windows overlook the rear garden. Such is the space in this home that the current owners chose to use one of the rooms as an art studio.
The lower ground floor
The lower ground floor is where family life really happens in this period home.
The bespoke cream kitchen suits the character of the home with its solid wooden work surfaces, Belfast sink and original built-in pantry cupboard. Many appliances are integrated. This is a kitchen you can dine in. Meals can be enjoyed whilst conversation flows across the farmhouse style table. The tiled flooring is the original. A range style cooker sits back in the inglenook chimney breast.
Across the hallway is the family sitting room. This is a room that can be enjoyed by the whole family. It's perfect for causal living, tv watching or for your teenagers to entertain their friends in. It looks out over the rear garden.
A utility room, walk instore and useful guest wc complete the lower ground floor living.
The uppers floors
Let's go upstairs. The first floor is home to two spacious double bedrooms. The master bedroom is so light with its dual aspect sash windows. The decor is soft in cream. Look around you'll see the original picture rails and cornicing. Peek out of the window and look out over Lindow Square. Is this the perfect city centre view?
The 2nd double bedroom has views over the pretty rear garden. There's ample space for a bank of wardrobes. It is such a peaceful room with it's garden views. You could easily be forgiven for forgetting that this is a city centre home. The family bathroom features a 4-piece suite in white and incorporates a twin ended bath and separate shower cubicle.
Follow us up the 3rd floor. Home to three further bedrooms, all of which are double rooms. This floor also has a 3-piece shower room. This is a home where there is wc on 3 different floors!
