A unique and simply stunning detached four bedroomed, freehold period property in the popular Crumpsall/Prestwich location of Park Rd, adjacent to Heaton Park and close to Bowker Vale tram station. Built in the 1920s, this beautiful Arts and crafts style home has recently been fully refurbished internally and externally. Packed full of original and restored features, this home offers space and character alongside sympathetic and stylish updates for 21st century living.
From the road this property offers kerb appeal in abundance, with a large, private drive with black iron gates and a drive with space for off road parking for 5/6 cars.
Entering the property via the storm porch and through the original stained-glass front door, you cannot help but be bowled over by the space in the large square hallway complete with original oak doors, parquet flooring, oak staircase, and panelling.
Moving through the hallway there is a large reception room on the left, a light and airy space with a traditional bay window that bathes the room in lots of natural light. With original polished floorboards, picture rails, coving and a living flame fire, this room offers a wealth of period features. This room leads through to a formal dining room, complete with French doors accessing the large rear terrace and overlooking the garden. With its cool tones and vaulted ceiling, this room is both grand and intimate at the same time.
Across the hall is another simply gorgeous reception room, with thick bouncy carpet, built in bookcase, brightly decorated with a beautiful view over the garden. This lovely cosy room is full of natural light from the dual aspect windows, one of which is a large window framing the garden.
The kitchen is most definitely the heart of this home. A sizeable space, it offers a kitchen dining area that is beautifully decorated in neutral tones. With oodles of cupboard and worktop space, this kitchen is both elegant and practical – and the attention to detail is outstanding. The custom-made sage green shaker style kitchen with its polished granite work tops is finished off with a natural flagstone floor and really compliments the age of the house and is well thought out in its design. A 5 ring hob, two full size ovens and a further over/microwave ensures that this is every cooks dream! Encased original windows, high ceilings, original columns, beams and period deep picture rail/plate rack, it also includes a beautiful dining area overlooking the garden, which really gives this room the wow factor.
To compliment the amazing kitchen, you have a large utility/second kitchen, with antique pine wall and under counter cupboards, granite work tops, a double stainless steel sink unit and loads of storage space – with room for all appliances that are important for a busy family life.
The downstairs cloakroom completes the beautiful downstairs layout. Encased in the part panelled staircase, it has a heritage style suite and period style black and white decoration including floor tiles.
Venturing upstairs via the magnificent restored staircase, the stunning interior continues - with an original stained-glass landing window that lets in lots of light over the large upstairs landing. The upstairs accommodation offers four beautifully decorated bedrooms. The bedroom to the front is an excellent size, a bright space that benefits from a large bay window overlooking the front of the property. Next to this room is another stunning bedroom overlooking the garden. Thick bouncy carpet, fresh light décor and fitted walnut bedroom furniture offering plenty of bedroom storage really gives this room a luxurious, boutique hotel room feel. The third bedroom is another bright, good size double bedroom with a modern en- suite including a large rainfall shower, making it an ideal guest room! The fourth bedroom is a single with bespoke fitted furniture providing ample storage and is also fitted out to double as a home office. The spacious bathroom completes the upstairs accommodation and does not disappoint. With a large, freestanding dual function heritage shower unit as well as a bath this will appeal to everyone in the family and the original Edwardian wash stand not only looks beautiful but also offers essential bathroom storage.
Outside the property boasts a large terrace and mature garden with original brick walls and cast iron lamp post, perfect for alfresco dining and long summer days. The huge garden area is lined with mature trees and plants, offering plenty of privacy without compromising on space. Suitable for both families and gardeners alike, it offers the new owner the flexibility to be as green fingered as they like.
The property also has a good size, externally accessed cellar with power, water and perimeter storage shelving that could accommodate a home gym, playroom or many other potential uses.
