A fine stone built semi detached country house set in approximately 1.5 acres and commanding superb views of the Tame Valley.

Woodbrow House forms the larger part of the original Friarmere Lodge which is believed to date back to approximately 1812. The property is said to have been built by Captain Thomas Gartside who also built a row of cottages opposite to accommodate his troops, locally known as 'The Barracks'.

The accommodation, which is in excess of 3,000 square foot has an impressive L shaped hallway with high ceilings, three reception rooms including a spacious lounge with bay windows seat, dining room and morning room. There is a large breakfast kitchen with range of wall and base units with 'Silkstone' work surfaces and AGA which also controls the hot water. A rear entrance hallway with slate tiled floor provides access to a cloakroom, guests wc, utility room and also external access to the rear of the property. To the first floor the landing follows the length of the property and features an ornate stained glass window. There are five bedrooms, all of which are double, two are en-suite and a family bathroom completes the living space.

Oil central heating is installed.

Woodbrow House occupies around 1.5 acres of land and are laid mainly to lawn with patio and terrace areas from which to enjoy the views. There is also a fenced off mature woodland area. Access to the house is via a tarmacadam sweeping private driveway which leads to ample parking provision for several cars. At the rear of the property is a garage and store room. There is also a cellar.

The property is situated on the A672 and is just a short distance from the centre of Denshaw where the local primary school is situated. There are a good range of local pubs and restaurants in the area and the M62 motorway connection is approximately three miles away providing links to both Leeds, Manchester and the M60.
