An ORIGINAL LATE VICTORIAN VILLA with magnificent presence and many charming features, including its own ballroom, SET IN 0.75 ACRES of mature gardens in one of south Manchester's most desirable locations in peaceful yet convenient surroundings.

The Quinta is a substantial six bedroom, four bathroom, detached family house steeped in history and was built by renowned local builder Issac Massey and Sons in 1899 for E Ashworth Esq, a timber merchant of the time, and is listed in Pevsners Buildings of England Architectural Guide. The house is built of pale red brick with roughcast upper storeys under a stone roof and has many original leaded light windows. The property was extended in 1920 to provide a magnificent ballroom which now is used as a grand entertaining room. Although the property has been modernised it still retains many original features.

Approached through an oversize solid oak front door you immediately enter the oak panelled entrance hall off which are the drawing room, and similarly panelled dining room. The inner hallway leads to the ballroom, study, sitting room, breakfast room and into the kitchen complete with Aga and hand built units with granite worksurfaces. Up a grand oak stairway from the hall you find a substantial landing off which are six large double bedrooms, two with en suite bathrooms and a family bathroom. A second back stairway leads from basement level to a second floor on which is a dependent relatives suite with its own kitchen living room bedroom and bathroom.

Beneath the property there are full height cellars including a family room fitted out like a galleon, three store rooms, a laundry and wine cellar.

The property is set in 0.75 acres of mature gardens the main part of which is south facing and includes several lawned areas on differing levels subdivided by a winding pathway which cuts through the garden and up the perimeter fence line. The garden is south facing fully enclosed and has an abundance of mature trees and bushes giving colour throughout the year and a high degree of privacy.
