To be sold for the first time in over 20 years, this is a Victorian period property built in 1836. Of considerable character with several original and interesting features throughout, the accommodation is arranged over three floors and there are also cellar areas that are ripe for conversion. With gas central heating, the family accommodation begins with an entrance hall having original patterned Minton tiled floor, living room with multi fuel stove and bay window, snug and dining kitchen. To the first floor, there are three double bedrooms and bathroom. The second floor offers bedroom four which is also a double room. It is possible to extend this floor further by using the spacious loft space subject to usual building regulations. Outside the property sits within a beautifully mature plot of 0.55 of an acre. Within the grounds, there is a garage, excellent off road parking, a range of outbuildings and large gardens stocked with mature plants and fruit trees.
The Crescent is a long established and aspirational address of individual period properties and enhanced recently with attractive grey cobbled pavements. The property arguably occupies one of the finest positions and plots adjoining the River Weaver and a pathway providing miles of scenic walks and cycle rides through the Cheshire countryside. Also part of this areas attraction is the close proximity to Northwich town centre which is currently undergoing a major regeneration scheme. The town offers a multiplex cinema, several restaurants, Waitrose supermarket with picturesque marina and a lifestyle centre with swimming pool and gymnasium. Of appeal to the business traveller will be the nearby A556 which connects to the motorway network and many major commercial centres throughout the North West e.g. Manchester, Manchester International Airport, Chester, Warrington and Liverpool. There are outstanding educational facilities in the area for all age groups and within walking distance is the highly rated Sir John Deane's Sixth Form College.
