Full descriptionA rare opportunity to acquire the first Passive House retrofit in the North West.
This newly renovated five double bedroom period semi-detached residence offers exceptional accommodation over four floors, yet is designed to have bills of less than £100 per year!
Situated on one of Chorlton's most prestigious roads close to the tram station and cosmopolitan Beech Road, the property is set in a truly fantastic location, feeding into excellent local schools.
Passive House hails from Germany and is the world's leading fabric first approach for low energy buildings, demanding a level of performance that far exceeds all others. Beautifully renovated throughout to the highest of standards, Woodleigh promises to produce incredibly low bills and minimal maintenance that out performs over 99% of new builds and certainly any property of its era.
Further due to the fabric first approach, it remains comfortable and warm year round without the need for renewable technologies (or even a central heating system!) and is effortless to run. The discrete central ventilation system utilities pollen filters and controls humidity to ensure unbeatable air quality. A huge relief for hay fever, rhinitis and asthma sufferers.
Whereas a similar property may cost £4000 in bills and £2000 on maintenance, Woodleigh is projected to have combined bills of less than £100 per year with negligible maintenance costs to boot.
The Development team set themselves world leading goals...
1) To create an exemplar home that combines the beauty and character of a period property with the world's highest standards of energy efficiency.
2) To give great consideration to sustainability at every turn, specifying only durable solutions and incorporating high quality, natural, breathable materials in place of petrochemicals.
3) To create a luxurious living space that compliments the traditionally generous rooms and high ceilings of the Victorian era, with stunning open plan interior layouts conducive to modern living.
On the ground floor a beautiful period lounge with a stained glass bay is entered through a double doorway. The first step your take through the stained glass entrance affords uninterrupted views from one side of the property to the other and amazingly right through to the back garden 15m away! Stride past the w/c to the open plan Dining/Kitchen area equipped with the latest German appliances and water saving technologies. Past the naked structure, down a couple of steps and you find yourself in a 4 metre high Living space equipped with state of the art woodburning stove and expansive glazing, bringing the outdoors in.
On on the first floor a master suite contains a 23m bedroom with ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. Bed two brings the modern feel with floor to ceiling glazing set in a spacious 19m room. A 10m family bathroom then completes the first floor exuding class with roll top bath, bronzed antique mirrors and chandelier. For the larger families, home offices or those that like to entertain guests the second floor offers a further three bedrooms (19m, 19m and 10m) and a handy 7m wet room to boot.
The basement has been transformed with 1800 bottle wine cellar, cold food store, wood store and boot room with a large Belfast sink for washing those mucky boots or dog. We have even left the largest room spare to become your workshop, extra storage or other fabulous studio space.
The lovingly restored Victorian front facade has reintroduced decorative bargeboards and finial, chinoiserie gate and porch, traditional stained glass (set in triple glazing), copper gutters and arched window. Subtle, low level brick boundary walls running alongside a pristine mosaic path, creates stop and stare roadside appeal. Sustainable urban drainage driveway provides weed and slip free off road parking and a seamless path to the generous rear enclosed landscaped garden. With its raised beds and paved patio area flowing into the property though the french doors, you can enjoy a lovely alfresco living arrangement.
Stunning period features are incorporated throughout and include elaborate Victorian cornicing, ceiling roses, tall skirting, dado rails, reclaimed pitch pine chevron flooring, roll top bath, Victorian hanging rail, copper light switches and a state of the art Wood burning stove.
The Alno Kitchen by award winning Diane Berry incorporates Top quality German cabinetry and appliances including; Steam oven, Fan oven, American fridge freezer, Dishwasher, Induction hob, 4 part recycling bin & plenty of storage. A Utility room with pocket sliding door has also been designed to allow for ultimate flexibility of space.
Thought has gone into every aspect of the build; the electric circuits are designed to minimise electromagnetic fields, the paints are made of clay (no VOC), dry ridges/verges combined with top quality hook fixed slate offers a maintenance free roof, all internal walls are designed to minimise sound transfer, the worlds most efficient ventilation system of its type, automatically controlled passive stack cooling and so much more.
Great interest is already being shown from the sustainable community with TV and magazine editorials secured. The purchaser will be welcomed with a photo book that captures the story of the project, alongside a copy of all media generated.
