A Stunning 4-Storey Period Townhouse. Fringe of Town Location. 3/4 Bedrooms & Attic & Basement Conversion. 2 Reception Rooms, Lovely Shaker Fitted Kitchen, Huge Bathroom & Downstairs WC. Cottage Garden & Hill Views.
Dating from the late Georgian/early Victorian era, this character townhouse retains many original period features and offers rather grand and most substantial accommodation; typical of this particular era.
The living space has been further-extended to include four floor levels, providing truly flexible accommodation which will appeal to a wide audience.
For the many who find themselves working from home on a regular basis, the accommodation will enable work from home space to be easily separated from quality home living. For the extra challenge of two home workers, this home offers the perfect solution – two spacious offices located on completely different levels; attic and basement.
The property is most deceptive; certainly no more so than from first glance. The period traditional red brick façade, portrays a rather handsome garden-rail-fronted townhouse, however, on entering the magnificent reception hallway, complete with original high ceilings and grand sconce mouldings, it quickly becomes apparent just how understated this home really appears.
The hallway is long and elegant and features a magnificent staircase and downstairs cloakroom/WC. The front reception room benefits an amazingly high ceiling, with original plaster cornicing and ceiling rose. The chimney features a lovely cast iron fireplace.
Neighbouring the front room, a lovely bright dining room provides ample space for family eating or entertaining, and features a high corniced ceiling, chimney breast, picture rails and French doors, which open to the cottage garden.
The glorious adjoining kitchen brings the dining area alive, making this the true hub of the house – an area most likely to utilised to greatest effect. The kitchen has recently been sympathetically renovated and features a stunning dove grey shaker-style kitchen – truly in keeping with the period style, but enhancing with a little contemporary flair.
The kitchen is spacious and features a breakfast/informal eating area, oodles of cabinets to store all the cookware, along with an array of integrated appliances – this is the place to be!
Accessed via the hallway; the original cellar has been transformed into fabulous living space – ideal as an office, occasional bedroom or, perhaps a teenagers getaway?
The split-level landing finds two double bedrooms to the rear and middle, along with a smaller toddlers room and a very spacious bathroom, complete with a freestanding four-claw bath and walk-in wet room – both having been adapted from the original front master bedroom.
An original fixed staircase leads to a top floor attic room with good ceiling height, Velux window and walk-in storage cupboard. This room is presently utilised as a work from home office, however, it would prove ideal also as an occasional bedroom.
The rear cottage-style garden enjoys super Peak hill views, is fully enclosed and easy to manage.
Beech Lane is conveniently situated within a five minute walk of the town centre, railway station and also the tranquil leisure areas of the Bollin Valley and glorious West Park. Good schools are in easy walking distance, including Park Royal Academy and Bollinbrook Primary’s and Tytherington & All Hallows High Schools.
The property has had substantial investment injected recently, with a major roof overhaul carried out in 2022, where the whole roof cover was replaced. The kitchen was also remodelled and replaced with a comprehensive range of cabinets and integrated appliances, and quality floor coverings were also renewed throughout the ground floor living areas.
This super home offers features and accommodation on a scale hard to beat at this price level and will be sure to appeal to a wide audience of space-hungry home-hunters, therefore early viewing appointments are considered essential to fully appreciate all on offer.
