Full description

A unique opportunity to acquire Europe's greenest retrofit! This exemplar home combines the beauty and character of a period property with the world's highest standards of energy efficiency having been officially tested and certified by the world leading German Passivhaus Institut.

The property is truly exceptional and has been featured in Grand designs, The Telegraph, BBC North West and radio 4, Sky news, RIBA journal, Architecture today, Passive House+ magazine and many more.

Beautifully renovated throughout to the highest of standards, this five double bedroom semi-detached period residence has been crafted into a luxurious living space that compliments the traditionally generous rooms and high ceilings of the Victorian era with stunning open plan interior layouts conducive to modern living.

Laid out over three floors with the average bedroom being twice the size of a typical double room, Ingleside boasts two reception rooms, large open plan Kitchen/Dining, 30m Master suite with dressing room and ensuite plus four more generous bedrooms serviced by a family bathroom and shower room.

Due to the Passive House fabric first approach, the home remains comfortable & warm year round without a central heating system. Ingleside has also reached way beyond Passivhaus requirements, embodying sustainability at every turn; specifying only durable solutions and incorporating high quality, natural, breathable materials in place of petrochemicals.

The discrete central ventilation system also utilities pollen filters and controls humidity to ensure unbeatable air quality. A huge relief for hay fever, rhinitis and asthma sufferers.

Situated on one of Chorlton's most prestigious roads close to the tram station and cosmopolitan Beech Road, Ingleside is set in a truly fantastic location, feeding into excellent local schools.

Entrance - The Victorian mosaic path leading up to the property continues into the hallway where it is complemented by ornate plasterwork and high ceilings. The first step you take through the stained glass entrance affords uninterrupted views right through the whole property and out into the rear garden 15m away!

Ground Floor - On the ground floor a beautiful period lounge with stained glass bay is entered through a double doorway with decorative plasterwork. Continue past the w/c to the open plan Kitchen/Dining area equipped with the latest German appliances and water saving technologies. Past the naked structure, down a couple of steps and you find yourself in a 4 metre high Living space equipped with state of the art woodburning stove and expansive glazing, bringing the outdoors in.

First Floor - On the first floor a huge master suite contains a bedroom with ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. Bed two brings the modern feel with floor to ceiling glazing angled to maximise light and solar gains, set in a spacious 20m room. A 12m family bathroom then completes the first floor exuding opulence with cast iron roll top bath, bronzed antique mirrors and ceiling rose perfect for a chandelier.

Second Floor - For the larger families, home offices or those that like to entertain guests, the second floor offers a further three bedrooms (20m, 20m and 10m) and a handy shower room to boot.

Basement - The full footprint basement has a boot room with a large Belfast sink for washing those mucky boots or dogs, all accessible from both inside and out. An inbuilt shed offers a perfect zone for the green fingered or cyclists to store necessary tools for the trade. The two largest cellar rooms are ready for you to add your mark. They can become your workshop, extra storage, cold store, wine cellar or other fabulous studio space.

Outside - Outside, the lovingly restored Victorian front facade has reintroduced a decorative porch, bargeboards and finial, traditional stained glass (encapsulated in triple glazing), arched window, copper coping and gutters. The hedge topped low level brick boundary walls running alongside a pristine mosaic path creates stop and stare roadside appeal. The Sustainable Urban Drainage (SUD's) driveway provides weed and slip free off road parking and a seamless path to the generous rear enclosed landscaped garden. With its raised beds and paved patio area flowing into the property though the french doors, you can enjoy a lovely alfresco living arrangement.

Quote from owner of adjacent Woodleigh who moved in Spring 2019:

After seeing the striking larch rear elevation out of the window of another property we were viewing on Zetland Road, we were told we were looking at some sort of over-priced eco-house. In recent years, our impact on our surroundings, a focus on our health and future-proofing ourselves from the costs of utility suppliers has become more and more important so this coupled with our love of the unusual we decided to go take a look.

We met with Kit and the Ecospheric team and went on a journey ourselves - understanding (as best you can) the process of the build, what it's like to live in a Passive House - and really thinking about how we wanted to live going forward without compromising our lifestyle, behaviour or our love of traditional architecture. Our biggest fear was how we would live it in, what we would need to do and learn but the fact is you don't need to do anything, the house does it all for you. It is warm, comfortable, fresh and each space in the house offers something unique due to it's layout. If anything, the house has changed us rather than us changing for the house. We have become more aware, more considered & more respectful of everything around us.

So here we are, almost a year to the day and the biggest compliment we can give is that it's our home and we love living in it. Our stamp is firmly on it and we often joke about the fact we couldn't go back to a 'traditional house'.
