The ground floor accommodation offers a wide, welcoming entrance hall complemented by a beautifully proportioned drawing room, separate family room, sun room, dining room and conservatory are complemented by an office/playroom with cloakroom and kitchen. Adjacent to which is an ironing/laundry room, and there is a small range of cellars. At first floor level is a master suite, bedrooms two and three with a Jack and Jill bathroom, four further bedrooms making seven in all and a family bathroom. There are also attics, whilst externally are arguably one of the finest examples of landscaped gardens in the immediate vicinity.

Hill Top is characterised by some of the finest houses in the immediate location. Many of which have been completely re-modelled or indeed demolished and re-built in recent times, yet this is surely one of the largest plots to come to the market.   Hale’s fashionable village lies within five to ten minutes as does Altrincham with its Metro system into Manchester.  Hale Barns with its newly constructed precinct is also within walking distance as are two local synagogues. The urban motorway network and International Airport are literally on the doorstep.

DIRECTIONS

From the centre of Hale proceed along the main Hale Road in the direction of Hale Barns.  Through the Delahays Road traffic lights, turning right into Hill Top, No. 7 Hill Top is after approximately two hundred metres on the left hand side.
