Property description

WOWSERS! CAN WE GET A VIRTUAL ROUND OF APPLAUSE FOR THIS GORGEOUS THREE BEDROOM EDWARDIAN RESIDENCE. WE DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START IN DESCRIBING ITS BEAUTY. JUST WOW!

A beautiful period home gushing with sophistication and inherent features. The owners have kept the integrity of the stunning red brick exterior whilst sympathetically renovating and extending the interior. A seamless KITCHEN EXTENSION has been added to the rear linking the ‘old with the new’ to create a fabulous Kitchen/Dining area and Family Room with Bi-fold doors leading to the rear garden.

Furthermore, plans are available to view as there is an opportunity to CREATE A FURTHER LARGE BEDROOM & EN SUITE BATHROOM BY CONVERTING THE MAGNIFICENT LOFT SPACE. We want to be the first to say it - we love the period contemporary styling of this house.

Sitting in an elevated position in the beautiful setting of Park Lane, lawned gardens, established borders and terrace are found within its boundaries. OakDene provides a rare combination of Edwardian grandeur and modern comfort, a great recipe for stylish family living. As is synonymous with this era, this handsome home is embellished with traditional features such as its huge sash bay windows, high ceilings, deep skirtings, attractive Minton tiles and dominating fireplaces. It is conveniently situated a few minutes from the town centre shops and restaurants, Congleton Park, the leisure centre and the railway station (which is literally across the road), which offers connections to national networks and frequent expresses to London and Manchester.

Those fortunate to be the eventual new owner of this prestigious Edwardian residence, will, we are sure, enjoy this beautiful home for many years. Such stylish period establishments are not commonly available and infrequently do they feature in the market place, so decisions need to be made without haste.

The feeling of space, accentuated with the well proportioned rooms and high ceilings, becomes immediately obvious as you step into the main entrance hallway with attractive Minton tiled floor, which provides doors to the ground floor rooms. The main sitting room features a lovely open fireplace housing a multi fuel stove, and adjacent is the dining room again having its own multi fuel stove, and is ideal for use as a second main reception or office/children's/teenager's room. The open plan and extended dining kitchen is blessed with solid oak units under granite surfaces which then flows into the NEWLY ADDED EXTENSION, which has created a natural fabulous family dining and living room with vaulted ceilings, velux roof lights and and a wall of folding sliding doors which offers a lovely aspect over the rear gardens. Discreetly off this room is a utility and separate cloakroom.

The first floor galleried landing is light and airy, and from here are three bedrooms (THE MAIN BEDROOM ENJOYING STUNNING SUNRISES AND CAPTIVATING VIEWS TOWARDS BOSLEY CLOUD) and tastefully modernised family bathroom. A separate dressing room is found off the principal bedroom, which could be altered to an ensuite (with plumbing already in-situ). As mentioned plans are available as conversion of the roof space is possible to create a further double bedroom.

Externally and together with the gardens bounding this home and found to the rear is a SINGLE GARAGE and PRIVATE DRIVEWAY.
