Meander up leafy Joel Lane, away from the buzz and bustle of vibrant Gee Cross before making your way up a colourful garden path.
Before you step through the door take a seat on the front veranda and take in the uninterrupted views across the city of Manchester…the perfect place to watch Christmas and New Year's Eve celebratory fireworks in style.
Step through into the porch and allow your jaw to drop substantially. Gaze down the vast 'z' shaped hallway, so accommodating that it houses a regal brocade sofa and gilded mirror at its zenith.
As the light pours through the multi-coloured stained glass door and lights up the French polished panelling, begin your journey through this beguiling home. Admire the marble plaster and traditional brass candelabra lighting adorning the high ceilings.
Let's explore to the left, where your luxurious lounge awaits. Come rain, come shine, this inviting space is the place to be. Alive with the warmth of family gatherings and evenings cuddled up on the sofa in front of the toasty warm log burner, this room resonates with comfort. Expansive enough for parties galore, yet so cosy. Flooded with light pouring in through the long traditional windows, fling open the doors in the summer months and you are outdoors.
Sinking back into the sofa, admire the delightful original features of this home: the lofty cast iron fire, the delicate and intricate ceiling roses dating back over 70 years. Surrounding you, the majestic wallpaper, lead-lined double glazed window panes and sumptuous curtains convey the theme of old world luxury to perfection.
Come with us, and discover your very own library in the fairytale turret.
Flooded with daylight from beautifully paned glass on six sides throughout the day, this clever castle library is your refuge when you need it most. So take a seat amongst the cushions and pull a book from the shelves.
In the summer, throw open the French doors and take your breakfast out on yet another balcony. Munch on your buttery toast as the sun comes up over Stockport and Manchester; from up here you can see it all. In the evening, admire the glimmering light of the metropolis beyond…bliss.
Returning to the hallway, wend your way along to the very end. Welcome to your family dining room. Sleek and chic, this room melds modern spotlighting and a modish glass wall with terracotta tiled flooring, and leads out onto the gigantic garden.
Follow your nose through to the next room, the hub of the home. Here lies your capacious kitchen, resplendent in marble and heavy tile.
From here you can keep the troops well fed. So grab a few handfuls of your own home-grown herbs and conjure up a hearty chicken casserole for those drawn-in winter evenings. Why not reward your efforts by pulling out a crisp, chilled bottle of Sauvignon Blanc from your sizeable American fridge freezer to accompany your creation…
Return with us to the hallway and discover your decadent Greek-style bathroom. Feel the pebble mosaic floor knead the tired muscles of your feet as you step across the floor and into your pristine white slipper bath.
Across the way lies your lavish laundry area. In its many incarnations it has even played host to a full-size snooker table, so why not promote this splendid space to the position of games room? With its stunning flooring perhaps this will be your gym or yoga studio. With such immense built in storage, it could even be a show-stopping walk in wardrobe. Through a door and you have uncovered your immaculate, roomy garage.
Follow us through to your majestic master-suite. Expertly decorated in soft pistachio green and gold, this room of recumbence is your sanctuary. Sit at your elegant dressing table in your beautiful bay window, adding the final touches to your ensemble, before heading out into town for drinks with friends.
Your second downstairs bedroom is neutral in greys and whites and so spacious with its wealth of fitted wardrobes it would make the ideal choice for your messy teenager.
Heading up the spindled staircase discover the ultimate space for your 'inbetweeners'. Up here, self-contained, you find a king-size bedroom, with a spacious loft room attached.
Next door lies another bedroom, and servicing both is a slick monochrome shower room. Up here, in the eaves, you also find your 'Christmas loft' – ideal for storing those once-a-year trinkets.
OUT AND ABOUT
With just under an acre of garden, take a turn across the lawned-area right to the back of the garden where pastoral views abound. Shire horses toss their manes in greeting. Nature is never far away here, so peel your eyes for baby rabbits, foxes and badgers.
Follow us round to the side of the house underneath the turret and balcony, past the rouged velvet petals of your glorious rose garden.…congratulations, you have discovered your very own hot tub. Pop open the prosecco and chill out under the stars.
