Located in an elevated position standing over Park Lane, the property is in a convenient and respected location, close to Congleton Town Centre. It is conveniently situated a few minutes from the town centre shops and restaurants, Congleton Park, the leisure centre and the railway station, which offers connections to national networks and frequent expresses to London and Manchester.

The property boasts spacious room sizes and lofty room heights creating an immense feeling of space and grandeur. Lavishly adorned internally and externally with strikingly beautiful ornamental features, this property is an architectural treasure trove. Now blended with modern comforts, the property represents the finest standards available for modern day family living - in style and splendour.

Briefly the accommodation comprises: large L shaped reception hall; drawing room; sitting room; dining room; conservatory; kitchen/ breakfast room; ground floor WC; spacious landing; 3 double bedrooms and a single bedroom; bathroom; cellar; garage; driveway; gardens to 3 sides; part original secondary glazed (Everest) windows, plus PVC double glazed windows; gas central heating with a recently renewed quality boiler.

This fine residence represents a celebration of the finest building craftmanship undertaken in the Victorian era. The quality of detail contained both internally and externally is quite remarkable. Spectacular bays, a highly decorated gable, decorative brick course borders, fret work barge boards, decorative ridge tiles, large sills and headers, pilastered mullions, complex fascinating chimneys, double casement sash windows, arched windows, ornamental railings all embellish the exterior. Fortuitously, many of the original internal features have survived the last century's change in tastes and trends. You will delight in the rich opulence of the magnificent stained glass windows, deep ceiling cornices and skirting boards, the dominating fireplaces and vast expanses of spectacular Minton tiled floors. The winding staircase is work of art in its own right and stripped pine original doors, original built in storage cupboards and stripped pine floors add warmth, character and beauty across the home.

There is then the modern addition of a spectacular 20' rear dream kitchen! The room was developed by the current owner and features: a lofty feature vaulted ceiling with Velux roof windows; PVC double glazed windows with plantation shutters; a stone grey designer kitchen with beautiful solid quartz quality work tops, large quality floor tiles and a clever use of mixed lighting - it's breathtaking! Other desirable modern features include a bi-fold door linking the dining room to the conservatory and a large luxury bathroom suite with a freestanding claw-feet roll top bath and a large shower cubicle. The generous landing does allow the first floor layout to be altered if so desired (subject to any necessary consents).

The grounds have been thoughtfully landscaped cleverly maximising the usable space available creating a wonderful garden for all the family to use and enjoy. Mature trees, old brick built garden walls and chunky stone walls, all add to the beauty that only exists with maturity. The lawned sections are actually artificial grass which look fabulous all year round and require little maintenance. Garden terraces are of a usable size and there is a superb, elevated rear dining terrace, nestled in to the rear garden walls.

The garage is at the rear and accessible from the garden plus there is an attractive blocked paved driveway at the rear. There is planning consent to convert the garage in to a valuable home office or a fun garden room.

The fortunate eventual new owners of this glorious Victorian residence will enjoy this beautiful home for many years to come. Such stylish period establishments are not commonly available and so decisions need to be made without haste. Call us today to book your viewing - before its too late!
