We are delighted to bring to the market this stunning Edwardian property with a timeless appeal proudly set amongst approximately a 1/4 of an acre of gardens. The residence dates back to 1908 when it was commissioned and built, for a local and prominent family by a Master Builder brought from Lancaster, and as such it displays the unique character and charm typical in a home from this period with its frontage of clear red brick and beige stonework and in particular its own special character displayed by its leaded glass windows.

Timeless in its opulence and generous proportions the home, with over 9000 square feet of living area, offers a superb and perfect family accommodation in magnificent surrounds, ensuring a private haven and a cherished lifestyle. Individual rooms with their high skirting boards, elevated and craftsman moulded ceilings, adorned with cornice boarders with wide doorways and doors (complete with individual top inset leaded windows) give the feeling of a grand and spacious living. This Edwardian home has been extensively renovated in keeping with its period since being acquired by the current owners whom have continually kept up to date with improvements over the period of time they have been in residence.

Accommodation is arranged over four floors and highlights include reception vestibule with its intricate mosaic patterned tiled floor, entrance hallway and stairs, cloaks/wc, extensive lounge, dining room, breakfast room, music room and two separate conservatories at the entrance level.

Additionally there is a separate second floor area which accommodates twin 80 gallon cold water storage tanks, gas fired boiler with an additional hot water storage system, also housing the ventilation system for shower room.

Outside, the property has twin gated access (including full frontal open cast iron fence above brick and stone walling) with extensive parking on a curved drive, a large twin garage with powered roller shutter door, outside garden wc, formal gardens which surround the house to include two garden ponds and three distinct tiled terraced patio areas. The property also benefits by being fully fenced around its borders and includes security lockable gates to separate the front access from rear gardens.

This residence welcomes you with a true sense of amicable comfort, with its generous living spaces creating a charming and airy appeal which pervade throughout. Entrance is gained after passing up the grand entrance stairway through twin double glazed doors into the typically Edwardian vestibule from which the large reception hallway greets visitors and gives way to all of the home's main ground floor living areas. A magnificent stairway and large leaded glazed window portal take pride of place as you enter the hall giving the feeling that this house is different and incredibly deceptive in its proportions from first impressions when approaching the home.

The home is quiet and relaxing with a multitude of quiet rooms to entertain or to just be by oneself, having parties is no problem as the house construction is so substantial that most times no one else in the Avenue will be aware that a party is taking place, additionally the home has access for Sky Television Service and EE Broadband and phone Service.

Whiston Hospital is only 4 minutes away by car.

All heating is provided by a gas central heating system, an additional hot water storage capacity is included to allow for three showers running at the same time, electricity, gas, water, internet and Sky are all supplied as services direct to the home.

All Leaded Glazing around the house is reconstructed from the original, which has been removed, refurbished and reset in new lead, all being replaced into new timber frames set over the double glazed units in order to retain the exact visual appearance as was intended by the Builder in the original house construction.

Recent improvements include for the full replacement of all Barge Boards around the house, the large main entertainment room being completely refurbished including carpeting and moulded ceilings, refurbishment to lower ground toilet and full replacement of shower room at bedroom floor level.

A survey of all trees on the property has led to many of the bigger trees being topped as not to be a cause for concern in high winds and removal of any instable trees.
