On the face of it, a lovely example of a period property. Sadly, that doesn’t carry over into the interior of this 1920s four-bedroom art deco house in Handforth, Cheshire.
That’s not uncommon, but it’s always slightly disappointing when someone has made a typical modern family home out of a distinctive build like this. Hard to criticise though – ultimately this is a house, not a museum.
Also, on the plus side, the house is still art deco in looks and over time, it would be possible to put some of the ‘period’ back in, should you want to do that. The stairway looks to have survived over the years though, which is definitely one of the headline features here.
Located in what’s said to be ‘one of Handforth’s finest locations’, the house has been extended over the years, but on the face of it, not to the detriment of the original build. You’ll obviously want a viewing to make up your own mind on that.
Accommodation includes a porch, reception hall with ‘deep understairs storage cupboard’, cloakroom/WC, a dining kitchen with island unit and Smeg appliances, which is open-plan to the family room with picture windows and a door to the garden. There’s also a utility on this floor, along with a lounge that opens to a dining room with bow window overlooking the rear garden.
On the first floor, there are three bedrooms, one with walk-in wardrobes and en-suite shower room, with the remaining bedrooms using the family bathroom. A staircase leads to the a master suite with access to the decked roof terrace and an en-suite bathroom.
Outside is a driveway at the front, along with a lawned garden and trees. To the rear is more gardens with lawned, decked and patio areas.
The asking price is £525,000.
