If you are looking for a home of distinction then look no further! `Willow Lawn` sits proudly on a large elevated plot on one of Bramhall`s most sought after premier addresses. With beautiful and imposing elevations, this magnificent home was custom built in the 1920`s in the famous Accrington Brick, specifically to capture the grandeur of a classic architectural era and like a rare antique it could be argued this home is truly priceless and the opportunity to acquire it may be a one off for many decades to come.
Willow Lawn, as mentioned previously, occupies a large elevated plot which offers a driveway leading down the side of the property to a brick built double detached garage which incorporates two outhouse storage places, perfect for garden tools and furniture, bicycles and the like. The garage area has power and light. The driveway also extends to the front of the property, which provides further space to park or gives turning space. The main front garden area is beautifully stocked with a whole host of mature shrubs and steps lead down to a lawn area. Looking out from the front of the home, you will notice the property is offset to the properties opposite, so both this and the mature tree lined aspect of the road means you are not over looked from the front. Side access can also be gained to the left-hand side of the home, so both sides lead through to the landscaped rear gardens which are mainly laid to lawn, with a pathway meandering to the rear section of the garden, which is not directly overlooked either. There is large patio area abutting the home which provides a place for outside entertaining, plus a private second patio which has been thoughtfully planned with soft cushioned surface to reduce the risk of breakages and could also suit a small child`s play area perhaps! A mature backcloth of trees and shrubs add further privacy beyond the rear perimeter. The boiler can be found in its own low level lean-to compartment accessed from the outside.
We trust our floor plans, will give you a good indication of the shape, size and layout of the accommodation on offer and advise you to look through the photographs whilst reading this description and then arrange to view the home, as the space, character and opulence of this fantastic home, can only be appreciated upon physical inspection. In brief the accommodation comprises: The centre piece Reception Porch with beautiful original leaded glass inset windows is a stunning starting point for the tour. The tiled flooring and glass panel front door and glass surrounds, then almost pulls you towards the large Reception Hall, which is a room in itself. Wood panelling is the theme following through from the Hall to the wide stair case, which has a half turn leading up to the equally impressive large landing. At half height, there is an ornate window which is another feature which captures the history of the home. The reception hall, also has a feature fireplace to one wall with stone surround and hearth.
Turning left or right, you have two large and inviting reception rooms, with the Main Lounge boasting impressive measurements and benefiting from some beautiful wall and ceiling moulds, plus the fireplace in decorative surround with living flame gas fire providing an additional heat source. With more beautiful leaded windows adding lots of natural light to the room including a deep walk in bay, the lounge really does capture the essence of this home. The Dining Room has an almost stately home feel, with more attractive wood panelling to the walls and a gorgeous hand crafted bespoke fireplace which still retains its top half original oak display piece (so often cut off or destroyed over the years) There is another bay window in this room plus characterful corner piece windows which offer a further dimension to the views from this room.
Also off the Hall, you have a third reception room, which is currently used as a second Sitting/TV room, with access out to the side elevation, plus in to the conservatory which also offers access to the rear garden and has a tiled floor that really brings the outside in, with panoramic views to the rear garden. There is a further feature fire place in the Sitting Room. Then you have the large Dining Kitchen which is fitted with an extensive range of base and eye level units and has views out in to the rear garden. There is space to dine within the kitchen, meaning no formal separate dining room is required, if you would prefer to create a second lounge space for the family to spread out. Off the Kitchen there is access to a walk-in Utility Room which doubles up as a pantry area with original glass front cabinet and shelving insets. Access to the garden from the kitchen is also on offer, with an open front and side canopy porch, which adds character to the rear elevation. Adjacent to the staircase, access via a hallway leads to a downstairs wash room with storage, wash hand basin and low level WC. There is further access to a side vestibule area which in turn leads to the side driveway or to a small lobby area with storage cupboards and access to useful under stairs storage.
Upstairs the benefits within this magnificent home continue, with the spacious landing as previously mentioned, leading to each of the first-floor bedrooms and the Family Bathroom. Each bedroom is a generous double in size, although two could be described as `double doubles` as they really are that large! Bay windows can be found in the largest two bedrooms plus matching corner piece windows can be found in the bedroom above the Dining Room. Two bedrooms over-look the rear garden and one (making up five on this level) extends out over the Reception Porch to take full advantage of the beautiful centre piece 3 storey structure which gives this home much of its distinctive look. The Family Bathroom is fitted with a suite comprising; panel front bath set in recess with mirror surrounds and hand crafted woodwork, walk in shower cubicle, low level WC, bidet and wash hand basin set in vanity surround with a range of that all-important cupboard and display space. Wash hand basins can also be found in all but one of the bedrooms on the first floor, therefore each ideal for guests or even adding en-suite space, as the plumbing is in situ. Finally, you have a brilliant surprise level of accommodation which can easily be missed at first glance, due to its clever positioning and design. Off the half level landing here is a door blending superbly into the wood panelling with a staircase leading up to a third level of living space. Made up primarily of one larger area which could be a teenager type bedroom suite, there is ample space for a bed and living/Gym/Playroom area, whilst access to a further separate room, (with views out over the frontage) which makes up the upper level of the hugely impressive centre piece structure of the building, could be the perfect homework/writing room or nursery perhaps! Good sized storage space can be found off the main area on this level and off the landing area adjacent to the stair case. Plus, there is an en-suite facility with walk in shower, wash hand basin in vanity surround and low level WC.
