This remarkable detached house with private gardens is situated on Hooton Road in the highly sought after village of Willaston. It was recently the subject of a complete contemporary renovation and has been significantly extended to create an incredibly spacious and architecturally impressive home.
Internally the property has undergone a major refurbishment which sought to celebrate and enhance the charm and features of the original cottage while drawing a dramatic contrast with an impressive extension that features full length glazing to maximise the flow of natural light. In addition there is a purpose built studio which opens out to an enclosed garden with artificial lawn and summer house. Additions of a new roof, electrics, heating and glazing were also made as well as the creation of a driveway and landscaping of two gardens.
This stunning home is offered for sale with no onward chain and early viewing is a must.
Entry from the parking area is through an enclosed garden to a covered entrance that has floor to ceiling glazing and glass brick wall. This leads into a hallway with downstairs W/C that is open to a large dining room with french doors to the front garden; this room has a bespoke metal staircase with artificial grass treads and slate wall and double doors leading into the living room.
The living room has a feature fireplace with gas stove and double doors opening to a sun room. The sun room leads through to the studio which has a vaulted ceiling door out to the front of the property and patio doors to the garden; this room could easily be incorporated into the kitchen and currently has a private entrance as its being used as a studio.
The modern kitchen is well appointed and features a steel wall, chipboard breakfast bar with AEG electric hob and a range of units which house a fridge-freezer, and build in oven / microwave grill.
Upstairs is a study area and a bright master suite which includes an en-suite with porcelain tiling and walk in shower with rainfall showerhead, and there is a large dressing room with fitted storage; this room was formerly a separate bedroom. On this floor is another double bedroom and a separate bathroom. Stairs off the landing lead up to a converted attic room with Velux roof light, window and radiator.
