Full Details

Parrots Nest

Meander down the affably titled Bowlacre Road, noting the air of prestige that surrounds the proud plots on either side; an eclectic mix of noble properties tucked away behind imposing wrought iron gates and peeping out from the boughs of blushing cherry blossom trees. This is a neighbourhood of distinction, for the discerning.

Arriving at Parrots Nest, you are at once struck by the breadth of the delightfully red bricked driveway which paves the way to your enormous double garage. Plenty of room for a fleet of cars, when you're hosting that all important social gathering.

Approaching beneath the welcoming parade of mature trees, you reach the glass-fronted porch. Doff your outerwear and feel free to freshen up in the helpful downstairs cloakroom before making your way through to the voluminous hallway. From here, solid oak doors beckon on all sides, while the wooden staircase ahead alluringly invites you to explore upstairs.

First, let us retire to the sitting room. Opening the delicately paned double doors to your right, admire the stunning meld of glass and beams. Sympathetically illuminated from the glow of modest internal lighting and the playful dance of sunbeams through the ample windows, this room with its soft green décor has a natural, peaceful ambience.

Sink down into a sumptuous leather sofa with a glass of robust red and settle down in front of a good box set for the evening. Drift over to the full height window and admire the views over your lush jade surroundings. Idyllic.

Once you're fully rejuvenated, follow us back into the hallway and ahead to the impeccably styled, open-plan kitchen and dining space. An impressive ten-seater dining table hints at the energetic evening soirees you will no doubt be hosting in the near future….there is so much space. Contemporary spotlighting shimmers down from above, neatly reflected in the slick black tiling above your sleek stone work surfaces. Such a social space, cook up a hearty morning breakfast as the kids perch at the breakfast bar, eagerly planning their day ahead.

As you fill up the kettle for the morning brews, glimpse out of the window the dazzling array of colours from the birds in the aviary as they flit fancifully to and fro.

Note the time on the Alice in Wonderland inspired clock above the industrial-style rustic radiator and usher your young along, before retiring to the opulent orangery where you can wrap your hands around your mug of morning coffee under the warming early sun as it filters down through the pristine apex vaulted ceiling. Let out a sigh of pampered bliss as the underfloor heating soothes your toes. What better way to start the day?

On languorous summer evenings, why not step through the bi-fold doors onto your covered seating area and bask beneath the shooting stars as they scorch the sky above. Snuggle under a blanket and share this special moment with your nearest and dearest.

From here you can step out onto your elevated walkway and take a tour of your lovingly crafted garden. Peppered with decorative touches, including a vintage water pump, make your way through this modern day Eden until you reach the source of a melodic tinkling sound. Ahead of you, elegant golden Koi Carp peacefully glitter beneath the surface of an immaculately kept pond. What is this tranquil world that you have discovered? Heaven…

Senses filled with the benevolent calm of nature, you return, soporifically, indoors and climb the spindled staircase to discover your master suite.

Luxury doesn't get more luscious than this. Scandinavian style mingles effortlessly with cosy country candour…oak beams unite with delightful wooden furnishings in this splendid space. But before you retire to that plush bed, why not treat yourself? Follow us through to your spa-standard glass-fronted wet room. Replete with all the luxuriance you would anticipate from such a regal space, there is yet more to discover.

Step through into your seductive sauna. This is your very own sanctuary from the demands of daily life. So lean back and relax now, this is the 'me' time you have so rightfully earned.

Fully recharged and refreshed after a spritz in your sparkling shower, towel down and wrap up in your softest robe before stepping back into your bedroom…and across to your very own private balcony. Secluded and sublime, pop open a bottle of your finest champagne beneath the moonlight and exhale. This truly is the life.

Across the way, a further three magnificent bedrooms await family and friends, alongside a most lavish bathroom suite. Light the scented candles, pour in the fragranced oil and enjoy the dreamiest of baths.

Out and about
It's time to explore the bright lights. Following the curve of tree-lined Bowlacre Road, gaze out over the raw beauty of Werneth Low. Snuggly situated between fine-dining gastro-pubs The Hare and Hounds - renowned for its spectacular New Year's Eve firework displays - and The Joshua Bradley - delightful for a summery gin and elderflower tonic in its vast garden - you are superbly set up for an evening of enjoyment.

With Woodley railway station at your behest all the restaurants, bars, shopping and theatrical extravaganzas of Manchester are within your grasp.

An afternoon's amble down the road leads you to the much revived village of Gee Cross, where there are a number of delectable dining experiences to be enjoyed. Why not take a walk around Werneth Low Country Park, or practise your putting at Werneth Low Golf Club?

All adventured out, you can return willingly to the seductive charms of Parrots Nest, your utterly irresistible sanctum of solace.
