Property Description

Full description

An exquisite Victorian Villa occupying a lovely secluded position set back from Legh Road, the town’s premier road, set within the conservation area a short walk to the town centre and all of its amenities. The property is beautifully refurbished and extended to a fantastic standard with the use of contemporary fittings and decoration combined with the traditional features include fine mouldings, original architraves and skirts, classic style fireplaces and high ceilings. The accommodation extends to around 8,500 sq ft with most of the principal rooms having access to or overlooking the terraces and mature landscaped gardens which surround the house.

There is a pool and plant room and a separate door leading to the changing room and steam room with shower, basin and WC. The large first floor area incorporates a gym and cinema room with glazed screen overlooking the sitting area and a separate guest suite with independent entrance.

The gardens have some wonderful mature trees and shrubs which provide a lovely backdrop and a high degree of privacy. A pathway to the front of the house leads to steps and the lower lawn.
Immediately adjoining the drawing room is a paved terrace which overlooks the ornamental pond. Wrought iron gate and fencing leads through to the upper lawn with well stocked herbaceous borders and a south facing aspect. There are further terraces outside the kitchen and the leisure complex.
