NORWOOD, A SUBSTANTIAL & DISTINCTIVE VICTORIAN HOME There is a passion for Victorian architecture in the UK and with every good reason; for their elegance and design detail along with the industrial revolution welcoming an age of wealthy middle class business people. Norwood is one of the greatest examples of this type of distinctive Victorian residence, built in circa 1880.
The hallway with stunning sculptured mouldings stand out as fine art whilst the deep cornicing and skirtings flourish throughout the home. The two principal entertaining rooms offer beautiful fireplaces and open fires. The proportions continue throughout the home which are staged over four floors and offers a living kitchen, full head height cellars, six double bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Outside yet more evidence of the homes rich heritage is what was originally described as a motor house with a copy of the architects original drawings still in their possession. This is now a garage with workroom above.
The current owners have carried out costly but vital remedial works; new roof to the house and garage including new gutters and downpipes, 6 new Velux windows (Conservation approved), chimney stacks rebuilt and recapped, a new combi boiler installed, bay windows with bespoke hand made wood units on two floors and other significant maintenance works. Independent of the improvement works there is cosmetic work required which gives the buyer and opportunity to add their own taste and style.
Of course, Mauldeth Road features numerous signature homes and that is because the wealthy classes also appreciated the strategic importance of the location which these days means the motorway and airport complex being easily reached whilst public transport, including the increasingly popular Metrolink service are also close by. Add to it quality schools, excellent recreational and social facilities, not least of which is the stunning Heaton Moor Golf Club adjacent to the home and offers stunning views from the North and West windows, you'll begin to understand the compelling attraction of this home. A truly rare addition to the market place.
