A “magnificent” grade II listed Georgian townhouse is this week’s featured property.
Restored with contemporary, high-quality fixtures and combining many period features, 33, Lawton Street, Congleton, is on the market with Timothy A Brown at £800,000.
The sale represents a rare opportunity to acquire an impeccably maintained home of architectural merit and historical importance.
In recent years the residence has been commissioned with a comprehensive yet sympathetic programme of restoration and improvement at great expense, lavishing attention on every detail.
The Georgian house seamlessly combines period features with contemporary high quality fixtures to provide a “fabulous home well suited to modern living”, according to the selling agent, who added: “It’s a house perfect for entertaining; the current owners use the large south-facing gardens for summer parties; the charming dining room for dinner parties and cocktails in the sumptuous drawing room. The bright, spacious and versatile accommodation extends to over 2,900sqft.”
To the ground floor off the grand entrance hall there is a dining room with stone fireplace, an “impressive” 24ft 7in dual-aspect drawing room with log burning stove and a “beautifully appointed” dining kitchen, all with oak flooring.
The kitchen is fitted with painted hardwood units, oak work surfaces, a Siemens electric oven, induction hob and extractor along with a dark blue gas AGA.
Leading to the first and second floors is a spindled winding staircase with arched windows to the half landings. On the first floor there are three bedrooms served by a contemporary house bathroom with separate shower and roll top bath.
The second floor is dedicated to an “indulgent boutique hotel-style” master suite comprising a dressing room, shower room and a 27ft 3in bedroom with open plan sitting room and log
burner to one end.
The cellars comprise two chambers currently used as a laundry room and a store room.
Completing the accommodation is a “gardeners’ loo” and summer kitchen/utility room accessed off the rear courtyard.
Outside at the back are entertaining areas starting with a courtyard that leads up to the main entertaining patio area then a further set of steps lead up to the south-facing gardens, mainly laid to lawn. Beyond this is a gate, which leads to an orchard.
