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 […]
New Beech Road, Heaton Mersey
Property SummaryA Victorian two bedroom terraced home benefiting from a full makeover in recent times which maximises the space on offer. A high specification fitted breakfast kitchen and separate utility area in the cellar. Upstairs super sized fitted wardrobes in the master and a staircase to the loft room.
OPERATION NEW BEECH Our client had already lived in this mid terraced property for many years when he decided to reinvent his home. Faced with the challenge he moved out and along the lines of a military operation, from top to bottom the work began.
Firstly the remodelling and that involved taking out the chimney breasts and squaring off rooms. Not only did this add more space, it made it more user friendly too. The next major project was the kitchen, sans chimney breast, it really was a blank canvas and to make the best of it he engaged Rye Flatt Interiors of Marple who specialise in the design, manufacture and installation of kitchens. Given the bespoke design you would expect excellence and it is a timeless arrangement with Neff appliances; oven, microwave, hob, dishwasher and fridge, and finished floor surfaces by Fired Earth. It is a truly outstanding outcome.
Our client had then wanted better facilities in the loft area so, heating, Velux roof lights, flooring and staircase access really makes for a more than practical storage area. The basement also came under scrutiny and whilst not wanting to do a full conversion he did deliver a high end utility space, so, plumbing was added, walls were plastered and heating included. Whilst all this was going on the property was rewired, a new gas central heating system installed and a high end bathroom with some practical storage space made for an impressive arrangement.
And, breathe.... Our client could then move back home. All of this excellence comes with many fringe benefits, quite simply Heaton Mersey has been voted one of the best places to live in the North West. It is because of the quality of the homes and the aesthetically pleasing mix, the access to village, town and city and the fantastic infrastructure with the motorway, international airport, main line rail systems and fabulous Metrolink service. The list goes on, but you get the picture.
The military operation being complete you now need to get organised, as no surprise, there is going to be a lot of interest. And for the lucky owner, upon completion a thoroughly structured operations manual of the house lies in wait which details everything you need to know about our clients home.
