Vale Close, Heaton Mersey, Stockport
Our clients cottage has been carefully presented to provide a delightfully quirky home over three floors and must be viewed to fully appreciate everything this property has to offer.
Vale Close is a stunning location, tucked away in Heaton Mersey's verdant conservation area. A cobbled and sloping road, lined with traditional style street lamps, leads to Heaton Mersey park and beyond to the Pennine trail. Period Cottages line the road and straddle a great chunk of history.
These three tier, early Victorian town houses are hugely sought after. Accessed via a parapet over a quaint passageway, you first find a spacious open plan lounge/dining room with a rear Juliette balcony looking out over the stunning Heaton Mersey Bowl and the former bleach worker cottages. Downstairs you will find a lower ground floor breakfast kitchen leading out onto a raised veranda made of galvanised steel giving a nod to the industrial connection - that leads down to the rear garden. Adjacent to the kitchen a second bedroom awaits, currently utilised as the guest bedroom and office but offering a multitude of uses such as a dedicated formal dining room, study or a home gym, this floor also benefits from an en-suite shower room and utility area. Back up the stairs and onto another level you will find a double bedroom and a luxury bathroom - luxury not only in size but with a four piece suite including a jacuzzi bath and rainfall shower.
Vale Close feels so very special, it is a wonderful release from the hurley burley of everyday life and that becomes more true as you step over the threshold of this period cottage. Built in the 1840's, these were workers cottages for the dying/bleach works - hence the name Bleachers Cottage.
For all of those other worldly delights, the real world is wonderfully close to hand with the motorway, international airport, rail system and Metro Link all only a short distance away. Also within walking distance, for those social occasions there is an excellent range of cafe's, wine bars, renowned Inns and restaurants of Didsbury village and Heaton Moor.
Altogether a unique home just waiting to be discovered.
