Nestled in the heart of Heaton Moor, This Beautiful detached residence is steeped in fascinating history, says Marc Cox from Philip James lettings
Fancy yourself as Lord of the manor? Well, this gorgeous property from the Victorian era might just be for you. Philip James Lettings is currently letting this double-fronted five-bedroom detached house in the centre of The Heatons. And, with countless charming period details, it’s certainly a fantastic opportunity.
The beautifully presented home has a rich history that’s sure to appeal to many, while its five bedrooms and spacious living space makes it a perfect family home.
Sitting on Tatton Road North, close to Heaton Chapel train station, the property was originally built in 1867 to be the local stationmaster’s house. And, if train spotting is your thing, you’ll be delighted to find the design and shape of the arched windows perfectly match those at the train station ticket office.
The train station itself was approved in 1837, although it wasn’t included in the original route plans, so it was only built in 1851. Since the train station connected the area to Manchester city centre, it quickly became the fashionable leafy suburb that we know and love today.
Most of the Victorian villas and mansions that line Heaton Moor Road and surrounding streets were built in the years following 1851 – creating the tree-lined avenues and period properties that continue to be desirable more than 150 years later.
Originally, the majority of land across the Heatons was owned by the Egerton family of the Tatton Park estate, until they began to sell it off.
The land this Victorian property sits on was bought from Baron William Egerton Tatton on August 14 1867 by Thomas Langford Ewen.
Since then, the property has been passed on numerous times, including to William Collinge in 1870 – who then passed it to his son and daughter upon his death in 1906. From them, the house was sold to Amy Hampson, for just £250. Following her death, the ownership moved to her husband, Robert Hampson, and then her cousins when Robert died.
Along the way, each of the owners has put their own personal stamp on the property, all the while managing to maintain its original features.
Today, the popular property is available to rent for £2,000pcm.
This stunning five-bedroom property features traditional architraving, fireplaces and beautiful wooden flooring throughout. It has been improved massively over the years, with a rear extension and conservatory and two extra bedrooms in the loft conversion.
With five double bedrooms – with the master room having an en-suite – the property would suit a family, and provides plenty of space. The property is let part-furnished and comes with neutral decor throughout, so offers plenty of opportunity for a family to put their own stamp on the property with bright furniture.
Another main attraction is the long, mature garden at the rear, which features a well-maintained lawn and bushes around the border. Elsewhere there’s plenty of off-road parking with room for three cars.
The original lounge and dining room have been opened up to create one seven metre-long living area, which has kept the original fireplace intact. Its spacious conservatory brings in even more light and offers beautiful views down the garden.
Nearby you’ll find a range of primary schools, rated good and excellent, as well as the local Priestnall high school.
