Full description

A rare opportunity to acquire a exceptional wonderfully spacious Edwardian style detached residence over four floors including the former servants quarters offering seven bedroomed accommodation, built from quality materials including engineering brick and commissioned by the Braithwaite family in 1908. This fine home could be turned into a number of residential or commercial opportunities and not only would this opportunity provide an outstanding residence over its 9000 sq ft of prime location but other opportunities would include converting it into an ideal Doctors Surgery and residence combined; a bespoke high end Care Home or possibly ' High-End Apartments ' .
The property which has been on the open market for quite a while, did start off with other agents at an unrealistic asking price of £1.5 million at which time we advised the owner to go to market at £795,000. Eventually, after been badly misguided , common sense prevailed and now David Davies Sales & Lettings Agent has now been given the opportunity to offer this property at the very realistic price of £595,950 ,which per square foot is EXTREMELY GOOD VALUE!
. The present owners, whose circumstances have recently changed are now wishing to purchase a smaller property to suite their needs which is now available and this serious asking price should not be ignored.
If you are interested in viewing this property please contact us direct and we shall arrange for one of dedicated viewing escorts to accompany you at a convenient time.
Full mortgage facilities are available via our connection with Mortgage Advice Bureau and an individual package can be discussed privately here at our Rainford Branch.
