DRAFT DETAILS - Which will never do this home justice...
Here is a unique opportunity to become the owner of a home which will make you smile as you turn into it's cobbled courtyard entrance, a home which many local residents are proud to have in their village, and a building so nice it has our Country's special Grade II Listed status and is mentioned on Wikipedia, a real local gem which has been loved and cherished by the current owners family for over 50 years.
Built in the 16th century this fantastic home is steeped in history and oozes character. Not only does it look like it belongs on a Post Card, it actually has been featured on a postcard. Built with a timber frame construction mixed with brick intersections, solid floors and a tiled roof this beautiful home was extended to double the size of it's accommodation. Originally it was thought to form part of the barns, hence this home has a tiled roof, as opposed to a Thatch Roof like its neighbouring two cottages.
The location is second to none! A stones throw from Bramhall Train station makes this a great choice for City Centre workers, who want to come home to a tranquil cottage and setting after a busy day in the city at work. Then you have the village which is a short walk down the road, so night time entertaining out is easy although you may be spoilt for choice on where to eat and drink! and not to forget day time amenities are on hand, including schools and health care facilities plus local walking and running routes, which is perfect for the more active buyer.
As soon as you arrive at the front door, you get a feel for the history this home has to offer. Beautiful Timber doors, with character fittings set the tone, plus solid stone floors and fantastic exposed timber frames greet you as you step inside the home. The lounge is the first of the spacious, yet cosy rooms, with 5 windows letting in light, a beautiful multi fuel burner, set into the exposed brick feature fireplace, and the exposed timber framework which includes the framework for the open plan staircase which leads to the first floor an the walk through recess which has a doorway leading into the second reception room.
The second reception room could be used as a living room or formal dining room, and has a stone/slate tile floor, two windows looking out over garden space, more exposed timber framework and charming original doors leading to more rooms and a storage closet. Off this spacious reception room which boasts impressive measurements, you will find one of the most homely kitchens you can imagine. A real working kitchen with modern benefits, yet fitted with a kitchen which fits in perfectly with the style and design of the home (See photos). Most importantly and unlike many modern homes, there is also lots space to dine and entertain. Dual aspect views ensure plenty of light is let into this room and there is a stable door leading out to the rear, plus slate/stone floor and exposed ceiling beams add the character to what is the newer part of the building.
On the ground floor level you also have a utility room/lobby, which has access to the outside space, plus fitted units including a Belfast style sink set into the wooden work tops and space for a washing machine, plus a window to the rear. Off the utility area, there is access to a spacious re-fitted shower room, which has a light bright and airy feel. Fitted with a double width walk in shower, wash hand basin on suspended wood plinth and low level W. The white ceramic wall tiling, white bathroom suite and chrome fittings including the old fashioned with contemporary twist towel ladder, combine a modern look with a traditional feel.
Upstairs is arguably where most of the homes character jumps out! Just walking up the quarter turn staircase starts to make you realise what a special home this is, with exposed timber framework forming part of the balustrade; and the roof timbers joining the landing area, stairs and the bedrooms together with character doors and door frames all working together to add to the most charming oldy-wordly feel. You have 3 bedrooms on offer on the first floor, plus storage facilities and the wash room/WC which is fitted with a low level WC and wash hand basin. The two bedrooms which occupy the oldest part of the building again have the exposed timber framework plus interesting roof lines and charming windows set into dormer recess areas. The largest of these two rooms has the most charming secret storage cupboard hidden effortlessly behind the mirror fronted door to one wall. You also have a useful storage recess area opposite the WC, plus deep storage closet off the landing, so storage is not in short supply. Finally the main master bedroom is a great size with dual aspect views and an extensive range of fitted bedroom furniture including a vanity work units, with integrated drawers and storage plus a fitted wardrobe to one wall, but all in a sympathetically designed style, so they just look like they belong!
Outside the story continues, with the cobbled courtyard frontage providing some shared parking space and offering access to a outhouse storage shed. You have side access to one part of your garden then more garden areas which extend down and away from the property. Lawn areas and pathways lead you around the large plot, and there is further potential to create quite a lot of extra parking.
