Situation
Heawood Hall is an elegant period property located within the former Heawood Hall Estate, once owned by the Boddington family of Manchester based brewery fame, which is now subdivided creating an exclusive collective of country homes. Heawood Hall is believed to date from 1720 and is constructed of red brick Flemish bond with buff sandstone dressings, rusticated quoins under a hipped, Welsh slate roof. The facade is that of a classical Georgian country house with tall sash windows within chamfered stone mullions. The vendor purchased the property some 21 years ago and has meticulously maintained the property since with various additions including a newly installed wet room, summer house and fitted shelving and wardrobes throughout. There is no doubt that the finish is excellent with any changes in future likely to be associated with only personal taste however there is perhaps scope to extend the house via the family room, across the stone patio and in to the associated outbuildings to create further living accommodation or indeed home office space subject to the relevant planning permissions.

Accommodation
A partially glazed front door opens into the entrance hall with feature mullioned windows and access to the cloak room. Along the inner hall are the principal reception rooms and the kitchen. The family room is spacious and well proportioned, containing a gas wall hung fireplace and French doors onto the side patio. This room would lend itself to further extension over the patio subject to gaining planning. The bespoke kitchen is handmade being designed in classic shaker style units with breakfast bar, butchers block and side unit with space for a standalone double fridge. The kitchen features wall and base units under granite worktops incorporating double sunken sink unit, tall pantry units, appliances including induction hob, separate Miele oven, dishwasher and two oven Aga. The open plan kitchen opens into the dining and sitting area with a pleasant southwest aspect over the gardens. Beyond is the reception hall with full height display shelves and storage cupboards below and wide tread staircase with turned balusters and handrail complemented by half panelling to the first and second floor. Adjacent to the reception hall is the drawing room, which is a particularly opulent space with tall ceiling, moulded ceiling rose and cornicing, feature gas fireplace with polished metal surround and granite hearth. This room truly compliments the individual period with contemporary blend theme running throughout the house.

The first floor accommodation is accessed via a turned staircase with half landing and feature sash window at three quarter height. From the landing a corridor leads to bedroom 2 comprising a spacious double bedroom adjoining a dressing room with built in wardrobes, vanity unit and centre island with granite top finish and the newly fitted wet room with shower, contemporary oversized hand basin and Duravit low flush wc. These rooms are complimented by the master bedroom suite with an ensuite bathroom finished with polished limestone tiles and modern Victoria and Albert slipper bath, walk in shower with glazed partition, Duravit sink unit and wall hung wc. The staircase continues to the second floor where the accommodation is equally as spacious to include a double bedroom with neighbouring office/bedroom 5, shower room and well-proportioned bedroom with a full range of built in wardrobes and side aspect. There is approximately 307sq.m (3,307sq.ft) of living accommodation over 3 floors.
