An elegant home, 34 Kingston Road still retains a wealth of original period features and is ideal for the family buyer offering rather deceptive accommodation spanning four floors.

Off a deep hallway are two separate reception rooms, with both having feature period fireplaces, deep skirting boards, sash windows, panelled doors and detailed cornice. There is also a breakfast kitchen and then stairs to first and the lower floor.

The lower floor is a real treat, having a superb family/garden room, large work/games room, store room, wet room shower room and utility.

Then, to the first floor are three large double bedrooms and a period family bathroom. Stairs then lead to the second floor where there are a further two bedrooms.

Externally, the property is approached over a block paved driveway providing off-road parking and to the rear is a most private lawned garden with easier access to the back onto Fletcher Moss.

There is easy access to Didsbury Village catering for everyday requirements where there is a wide range of restaurants, bars and shopping facilities. For the commuter Manchester City Centre lies approximately five miles away and is readily accessible via means of frequent bus services routed along either Kingsway (A34) or Wilmslow Road (A5145). Access to the National Motorway Network is also nearby and the property is within close proximity to many popular schools catering for children of all ages.
From our Didsbury office proceed along Wilmslow Road in the direction of Parrs Wood. After passing The Didsbury Pub take the second turning on the right into Kingston Road where the property can be found on the right hand side.
