Full description

Cranbrook House offers the discerning purchaser an opportunity of acquiring a prestigious lift assisted penthouse apartment in an impressively restored Victorian building on Sedgley park Road in Prestwich. Great care has been taken to retain much of the grandeur and charming features of the period in the conversion of this property into 8 self contained apartments. Standing in its own landscaped grounds, Cranbrook House is approached via electronically security gates with ample car parking available. We offer for sale the Penthouse apartment with an added elevated area with gallery. A viewing is essential to truly appreciate all that this beautiful home has to offer.

What The Owner Says
We have owned the Penthouse since its conversion and have enjoyed the amazing space, light, privacy and security. We benefit from having exceptionally quiet neighbours (the Police training college) who bring the added bonus of making the area crime free! The local area is also a fabulous base for Heaton Park, local shops, places of worship, restaurants and the city centre (only 2 miles away). We most definitely have the best of both worlds.
During the past few years we have upgraded the bathroom, kitchen and have re glazed all of the windows in the apartment. Both our apartment and the whole property have been well maintained and the gardens are especially enjoyable with a good book and a glass of wine when the weather allows it. 
It is with a heavy heart we need to move due to work and we hope the next owners enjoy this unique and versatile space as much as we do.Penthouse Apartment 
The entrance hall is complimented with wooden flooring and video entry system. The magnificent spacious open plan living room incorporates the dining room and kitchen with a feature bay window to the front of the property and makes a fantastic entertaining space as well as practical for every day living, with a feature living flame gas coal fire and high apex ceiling with exposed wooden beams.
