GOING DOWN? GOING UP? Property Loft & Cellar Conversions The last 10 years has seen an increase in cellar and loft conversions and I’m often asked “What value do they add to the subject property?” Like everything else in life it’s about the quality of the finish verses the cost of the exercise, and a […]
Mersey Road, Heaton Mersey
Property SummaryA rare opportunity to live in the heart of Heaton Mersey's Conservation area with superb woodland views over the south west facing garden towards the Common. First floor balcony. Versatile accommodation 3/4 bedroom with utility room and integral garage. Viewing advised to appreciate all on offer.
3 STOREYS, A NEW CHAPTER & A TRULY HAPPY ENDING Our client, an accomplished playwright, was looking for something special in the search for her new family home, all those years ago. 55a Mersey Road stood out immediately because it was private, set back from the road and as a town house with three storeys promised more space and easier maintenance that the large Victorian properties with extensive gardens, flanking the property. Its location meant it was in the catchment area for outstanding Priestnall School and popular primary schools like St John's and convenient for a wide range of schools in Stockport and Manchester. It is within easy reach of both Heaton Moor village centre and the major transport hub at East Didsbury. At the same time, our client was aware that the house backed onto Heaton Mersey Common and offered a quiet, natural outlook that allowed for creative inspiration. In her own words "it was like walking into a wood". When you stand on the first floor balcony overlooking 11.5 acres of parkland, all part of the treasured Conservation area, you'll realise why it inspired the purchase.
Yet there is more to it than that, with convenient and versatile living space that can be four bedrooms or three bedrooms, lounge, dining kitchen and sitting room with the balcony view. It is a clever design and makes the most of what is on offer. Being only one of four homes of this style, that rarely come to the market, an early viewing will help you discover three 'storeys', begin a new chapter and for your own property search, find a truly happy ending.
ONE OF THE BEST SK4 was voted the third best place to live in the North West following on an annual survey by the Sunday Times. It is due to its delightful mix of homes, many in stunning settings, the excellent schools, leisure facilities and outstanding eateries. Equally, its transport facilities are up there with the best with the International airport, motorway complex, mainline rail links and the Metrolink all minutes drive away.
