A Breath-taking combination of old and new that still feels like a fun family home. This superb, architect designed home could grace the pages of a glossy magazine. But unlike many modern prestige properties, your family and friends will feel right at home.
You can't fail to be impressed by this substantial and luxurious home, which dates back to 1734. But it's the recent renovation that has transformed this property.
The simple stone buildings seen from Lane Ends give no hint of the modern magnificence you'll find when you step inside.
But this isn't the kind of stark modern luxury that makes you feel on edge.
The property has been designed to be a welcoming space where your family can relax and get the most out of spending time together. It's also a fantastic party venue.
The heart of the living area is the open plan kitchen & dining area which seamlessly links to the spacious family room.
The fusion of old and new is no more evident than here. Exposed stone and the traditional family room fireplace contrast with 40-foot floor to ceiling windows, giving stunning views of the private gardens.
The gorgeous modern kitchen has been improved with new, top of the range appliances, gleaming white surfaces, with a substantial island and breakfast bar as the centrepiece.
This house is first and foremost a family home - but it's also perfect for entertaining friends and family - inside and out.
Bi-fold doors open from the dining area onto the terrace and gardens, so you and your guests can easily spill out to enjoy the sun.
The terrace has a real Mediterranean feel, but when the weather is more Stockport than Sardinia you can retreat inside to have a drink in the bar, enjoy a game of pool or escape to the cinema room.
If you're all partied out and just want to relax in private or do some work, that's no problem. There's a separate lounge and an office/snug, just off the kitchen. With exposed beams and brickwork, both rooms are dripping in traditional charm.
With so much to offer on the ground floor you won't want to head up the gravity-defying glass staircase. But when you do, you'll instantly be rewarded with a stunning view from the galleried landing.
The first floor has a principal bedroom suite, 3 double bedrooms (2 with en-suites) and the sumptuous family bathroom.
The principal bedroom suite is fabulous, with wonderful views over the gardens and the Cheshire countryside. You'll love waking up here. It has a dressing room which leads to the ensuite bathroom, with both a freestanding bath and a walk-in shower.
And there's even more to this impressive property.
Head beyond the cinema room and you'll find a separate annexe, complete with open plan living room / kitchen, shower room and bedroom.
With its own private access, this versatile annexe would be ideal as weekend guest accommodation or perhaps a rental. It would also be perfect if you had more than one generation living under one roof or wanted to give a teenager some privacy and independence.
The property is practical too. There's off street parking, a built-in garage for storage & downstairs w/c.
Where it is
This is a truly impressive property and the Romiley location will not disappoint. It's less than 10 minutes' walk from the heart of Romiley village.
Here you'll find a Post Office, a range of local shops, pubs and restaurants and a Sainsburys Local supermarket. Romiley has a thriving local community where you'll be sure to receive a warm welcome, with the Forum Theatre at the centre of village life.
It's a great base if you're into cycling or running in the Cheshire countryside or just want to encourage the kids to ditch the devices and get some fresh air.
If you're a member of Romiley Golf Club, you could wheel your clubs to the clubhouse in under 3 minutes - it's literally just round the corner.
Move here and you can also say goodbye to school run traffic stress.
Romiley Primary School (rated ‘Good' by Ofsted) is only a 6-minute walk away.
If you prefer independent schools, you're spoiled for choice with several top-performing single sex or co-ed schools around Stockport and Cheshire.
Whether you need to travel into Manchester for work, for a little retail therapy or to catch up with friends, you've got options.
It's only half an hour to drive or you can leave the car at home and catch a train from Romiley to Piccadilly. That will take just over 40 minutes.
This remarkable property has everything - a sought-after village location and a breath-taking fusion of old and new.
It really is the ultimate modern family home.
Due to personal circumstances the new owners of Lane Ends are relocating and are reluctantly selling this remarkable property. It has been reimagined by its current owner ready for its next chapter.
