« previous next »


INTRODUCTION Of distinctive and striking aesthetic appearance, set in grounds of 3.874 acres and being tucked away at the end of a little known lane, an early viewing is strongly recommended.

The property was constructed around the 1875 and is a very substantial residence with some parts being semi-detached. Internally there is fantastic accommodation that is spread over three floors and is ideal for family life. Whilst the house does have further potential to be developed in a more contemporary fashion, there is nothing to stop a family from moving in on day one and enjoying both the internal and external delights that the property has to offer.

The accommodation opens with a spacious entrance hall that gives access to three of the principal reception rooms. A high quality staircase that is original to the house rises to the first floor landing. The living room is well proportioned and has features that include a bay window to the front, timber flooring and a fireplace with marble hearth. The study is of a good size and has a cloakroom off it, whilst the formal dining room has attractive aspects and a feature fireplace. From the dining room access can be gained to an inner hall which leads to two further rooms, they being the family room and the breakfast kitchen. The family room could be utilised in a number of different ways to suite the varying needs of different buyers. The breakfast kitchen represents the heart of the home extending to an impressive proportion of 18'2" x 14'5". In addition to an impressive range of wall and floor cupboards there is also granite preparation surfaces with matching upstands and a central island unit with fitted cupboards and shelving. There is more than ample space within the breakfast kitchen for a large table and chairs and a sofa if required and there are also fabulous views over the gardens and grounds. It really is a delightful open plan space that is most suitable for modern family living. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a very useful side hall/utility together with cloakroom and separate store room.

At first floor level there is a split landing. The master bedroom is of a fantastic proportion effectively mirroring the living room underneath and having wonderful aspects and period features. There are three further bedrooms at this level together with a particularly well appointed contemporary family bathroom. On the second floor there is a large double bedroom, separate shower room, lobby, walk in store and indeed a sixth bedroom.

Externally the property has ample parking and turning space for multiple vehicles. There is a double garage and further storage buildings whilst the gardens, grounds, paddocks and orchard are an absolute delight. The overall external setting is mature, established and does not have any other houses directly overlooking it. The property does have Acton Bridge railway station as a neighbour and this is of course perfect for those who commute to Crewe, London, Liverpool and a range of other commercial centres in this thriving part of the north west of England.

Packed with period charm and appeal, set in stunning grounds of 3.874 acres and located within Acton Bridge, this rare opportunity is worthy of an early inspection.
