Dating back to circa 1890, we consider this imposing house to be a fine example of the impressive properties to have been constructed in the Victorian Era. Discreetly positioned at the head of a cul de sac, in one of the most preferred locations on the outskirts of Biddulph, with the award winning National Trust Biddulph Grange Gardens close by. Bordering on open countryside with just a few minutes drive delivering you to some of Staffordshire's most enjoyed natural views and rural walks, yet extremely convenient for access to Biddulph, one mile South, and Congleton, four miles North which offers links with the main M6 arterial routes, and mainline national rail networks.
Spring Grove House, was formerly the residence of the Head Gardener of Biddulph Grange and provides a rare combination of Victorian grandeur and modern comfort, a great recipe for stylish family living. Amongst its traditional features are beautiful stained glass windows, high ceilings, deep skirting, bay windows, pine wall panelling, open fireplaces and large internal pine doors.
There are spacious reception areas, including a spectacular Reception Hall, with the original Minton tiled floor (currently carpeted over), as well as a lovely Drawing Room with original sash bay window, and a formal Dining Room offering views over the private front garden. The Family Dining Kitchen is the warm heart of the house, a lovely social family room. Also on the ground floor, is a Family Room/Study, separate Cloakroom and Butlers Pantry with "cold slab". From the Rear Reception Porch, is a utility, and access to the double garage with steps down to the cellar rooms.
The first floor is accessed via a splendid shallow-rise return staircase with superb window overlooking the grounds. The Master Bedroom enjoys views over the front garden and has its own en suite shower room. The second bedroom is equally well proportioned, and towards the rear of the house are three further bedrooms, separate w.c. and family bathroom with walk in shower.
Outside, as befits a property of distinction, there are lovely formal and manageable gardens incorporating specimen trees and shrubs, terrace seating and lawns, and behind is a LARGE INTEGRAL DOUBLE GARAGE, driveway and further lawned gardens.
