As the House Price index uncovered, Stockport held among the best year-on-year house price increases at 3.9pc. So why is this area on […]
St Johns Road, Heaton Mersey, Stockport
THE CIRCULAR ARGUMENT The point of a circular argument is that you eventually return to the same starting place and in the case of this period home it is the first and last thing that you will see that will leave you wanting to live here. 8 St John's Terrace was built in 1858 and was constructed for the Verger, the Church having been completed two years earlier. Uniquely it forms part of a circular road, one of only four in the UK evidently, that included the Vicarage, the School Master's house and the school, the latter three buildings all being Grade II listed.
The picturesque location was improved in the eighties with the aid of the Manpower Services Commission and consequently the road is made up of cobbled and brick sets, lined with traditional style street lamps. Understandably it falls within the treasured conservation area within the very heart of the village.
The cottage is a double fronted and linked at the back to the St Johns courtyard. Inside, there are two entertaining rooms, two double bedrooms, a practical semi converted cellar space and an updated kitchen. It has been substantially improved with Acoya double glazed windows, porch and external doors in recent times. It is a quirky non-linear home which is far from conventional and all the more fascinating as a result.
The village centre is a stones throw away whilst convenience for town and city as well as the motorway, international airport, main line train station and Metrolink make it even more appealing. With vacant possession on offer you'll want to go off at a tangent to make sure you view this home.
Please note all windows (with the exception of the cellar window) and external doors were replaced November 2019. Guarantee and paperwork is available for the buyer.
