Full description

Tenure: Freehold

First time on the market in over 30 years, Brailsford, a one of a kind property, was constructed in 1971 to the personal design of the first owner. The property sits in it's 1/2 acre plot beautifully positioned on the wooded side of Bidston Hill. All principal rooms face West and enjoy views over the mature gardens and towards the coast and the Welsh hills beyond. Brailsford has been laid out to provide a most agreeable flow and all the rooms are of a size seldom seen in modern properties, in total over 3500 sq ft over three floors. The living accommodation alone totals over 2100sq ft, this does not include the bathrooms, cloaks, spacious hallways, the various ample sized store rooms nor indeed the large 20' x 17' 6 integral double garage! Of special interest is the lower ground floor which is ideal for use as an annexe for a teenager or as a granny suite if desired.
Brailsford is bounded on one side by its own private lane giving easy access to the length of its garden thus providing further development opportunities. At the asking price the property is keenly price against the Uk average of £2216 per sq m. (excluding London). At this figure Brailsford would be £739,000, and it must be noted it is far from average in its location, size of grounds and the generous proportions of its accommodation.
Truly a magnificent family property and words alone can only hint at it's unique virtues which can only be appreciated by viewing at first hand. This we strongly urge and recommend.
