We are delighted to have the opportunity to offer for sale what was previously a detached dwelling, now split into two grand semi's. Want a little history to the building, here it is! The whole property was built around 1895 for one of the founder members of what is now Mornflake, then in the 1940's occupied as a nursing home and after that occupied by Italian cloth makers for what was formerly Chester Barrie clothing company, it has now been converted into two stunning semi detached homes and we are sure it will inspire and delight upon inspection. This grand semi stands elevated within good size landscaped gardens, from the first floor you can see as far as the Queen's park. This quality home has been built to a grand scale and extremely high standard with spacious rooms throughout, stunning galleried landing, large sash windows, high ceilings, ornate tiles, wooden floors and a cellar just to name a few. There is an entrance porch, stunning entrance hall with original tiled floor and wooden balustrade leading up to the galleried landing. The lounge is located to the front and has a doorway leading to a small room which is currently used as a study. The stunning fitted dining kitchen has built in appliances and large windows which overlook the beautiful rear garden. To the rear of the entrance hall is a doorway which opens onto the lovely patio and garden. Also located on the ground floor is a large cloakroom. Now to the first floor, there is a spacious landing with second staircase off leading to the top floor. A large window allows light to flood into the galleried landing which is certainly impressive. The master bedroom has a dressing room off. The second bedroom has a sink and feature fireplace, the bathroom completes this floor. On the second floor there are two further bedrooms, one currently used as an artists painting gallery and finally there is a shower room.
