A ‘fairy tale’ home! The ‘Coach House’ is a truly enchanting, beautiful home, packed full of history and character. The property has been lovingly restored, renovated and extended over the years to create a unique family house with a very private and mature garden. It has the feel of a country residence, but is situated in the heart of South Manchester.
The space available here is amazing – a surprising 2,088 square feet of living space, spread over the two floors. (larger than many 4 bedroom homes) Let’s explore.

As we enter, we are greeted by a large welcoming hallway, (quite a space on its own). Here we find a handy downstairs WC, door through to a cosy lounge with a gorgeous, exposed brick wall as well as double bifold doors opening out on to the delightful south facing garden. The downstairs area (apart from the utility room) benefits from a continuous solid oak floor. As we go through towards the dining room, something immediately catches the eye: The spectacular central fireplace which is open to four sides and provides a real focal point whilst linking the dining and kitchen spaces. Speaking of which, this double room extends to 28ft in length and is packed full of character including a beautiful beam-laden ceiling.
The kitchen area is fitted with an extensive range of oak cupboards and sleek dark granite worktops. The generously sized central island provides plenty of counter space including a breakfast bar. Here is also a lovely picture bay window recess with a seating area. An ideal place to read a book or take in the sounds of birds chirping in the garden whilst enjoying your morning cuppa. You will forget that you are in the city.
Also on the ground floor is a spacious, fully fitted utility room (larger than many kitchens!). With lots of useful storage cupboards, its own sink basin. A second porch entrance from the front and a door though to the integrated double garage with electric up and over door.
On the first floor the landing gives us access to the three double bedrooms and family bathroom. The ‘Master Suite’ is a huge space, benefitting from a generous walk in wardrobe/ dressing room (which includes a built in desk and shelving, making it ideal for a home office). We also find a stylish en-suite shower/wet room with travertine tiles and remote shower control.
The second double bedroom boasts extensive built in wardrobes & cupboards, I mean. You can never have enough storage right? Also built in is a clever 'hidden' wet room space with a powerful shower. The third bedroom is also a great sized ‘double’ and benefits from considerable storage.
The family bathroom is quite special. With vibes of being on a luxury boat. It has a huge 'sunken' bath, is smartly tiled and has a unique curved, wood-panelled ceiling. Lovely!
Externally the property enjoys a private and particularly well-stocked landscaped garden, with an attractive Cheshire brick wall surround that not only looks amazing, but also provides great privacy and a secluded feel. There is a beautiful lawn, a paved patio, a summer house and the most delightful pergola (vine-covered) walkway from the front gate. A large cobbled driveway is accessed via electric gates, and provides ample, secure off road parking and access to the garage which, for the car enthusiast, has an inspection pit.
The property is further enhanced with solar panels which produce electricity both for use in the home, and to provide an income by selling surplus back to the grid through the Feed In Tarrif scheme.
Whilst currently this is already a beautifully balanced large family home, the property offers further scope to extend over the double garage (subject to consents).
You have easy access in and out of Manchester City centre. Neighbouring Wilmslow road has frequent bus routes into Picadilly (providing ready access to Manchester hospitals and the Universities) and out to the Didsbury, West Didsbury and the airport. The vibrant Withington Village is on your doorstep, with its trendy stores & independent cafes.
The property is also close to some of the most highly regarded schools in the Northwest: Manchester Grammar School, mhsg and Withington Girls School, all of which are within walking distance.
