A variety of Edwardian Arts & Crafts style homes decorate the tree-lined road that is Birchvale Drive, Romiley. Halfway down, opposite Romiley Cricket Club, you will find number 21, which was once the family home of the man who built them.
The dramatic arched brickwork entrance welcomes you into a large and inviting hallway, ideal for busy family life. It is here that you first get a sense of the quality of finish in this stunning home, from the period detailing to the immaculate décor
Your eyes can't help but notice the landscape design on the stained-glass window at the foot of the stairs. To the left, is the first of the reception rooms; as with all the rooms in this beautiful home, it is spacious and filled with light. The current owners use this space to listen to their vast music collection; you can imagine spending an evening laid on the sofa after selecting an album from your vinyl collection and being transported to wherever the music takes you. If you have young children picture this as a playroom, a separate space to hide the wonderful chaos they can create in seconds.
Behind the sitting room and off the hallway lies the lounge. As soon as you walk in, you will experience a feeling of cosiness. This is the room you will be spending most of your time in, enjoying the heat from the multifuel stove as a storm rages outside or bringing the outside in during the summer months by opening the French doors onto the patio. What an ideal spot this patio area is a place to star t your day enjoying a morning coffee overlooking your gorgeous garden.
Back into the hall and head into the kitchen - we just love how this room flows into the breakfast room beyond. The quality kitchen has plenty of storage and space for your family to congregate, after all, it is the heart of the home. Moving into the breakfast room, a great space for entertaining family and friends. This room is a good size, again with doors opening onto the garden.
As you take a step outside, the first thing you will notice is the size. If you are looking for a home with a large garden, this is the one for you. Oh, where to begin? You can't ignore the picturesque summer house with its own little patio; such an asset, whether you work from home or need a space for your hobby. Should it be your home office, an artist's studio, a home gym, a craft room, or a music studio? The possibilities are endless.
The garden is filled with mature trees, colourful flowerbeds, and shrubs - just being out here brings a sense of calm. It really is a private and idyllic setting that can be enjoyed by the whole family. The large lawned area is just a dream, you can see your kids cartwheeling across the grassy surface, practising their ball skills. It could even be the setting f or a marquee and a wonderful get together.
