Neatly set back from the main road, behind its red-brick paved driveway, sits the grand, pre-war gabled face of Number Forty-Five Longsight Road, in Holcombe Brook.

Step into the inviting entrance hall, with its high coved ceiling and intricate spindled staircase leading up on the right to the first floor.
Slip through to the left, where a sumptuous sitting room awaits. Snug and welcoming; the perfect place in which to unwind in the evening.

Pendant lighting overhead illuminates the original features including classic architraving, whilst the large bay window to the front allows the natural light to flow through.
To the rear, a second living room awaits; so spacious – a true family room.
Centre stage, an imposing solid wood surround encases a traditional open fire; so cosy on those winter evenings.

Rest and refreshment await on the first floor…
Take the spindled staircase upstairs, where three spacious bedrooms await.
Masterfully proportioned, to the front of the house, bedroom one takes premier position. Dressed in peaceful greens, this master bedroom contains its own dressing area replete with fitted wardrobes.
Positioned by the bay window, a dresser makes the best use of light. Where better to prepare for the day ahead?
On the right-hand side of the home, also located at the front is another spacious bedroom, running almost the entire length of the house, overlooking the front and side of the house. Decorated in gentle blue tones with neutral carpeting, this room is simultaneously energising and yet relaxing.
Next door, a large family bathroom is whimsically decorated in a rustic beach hut print, complementing the blue tiling to the lower-half of the walls for a refreshing ‘seaside’ vibe.
Sink into the spacious bath and soak away the cares of the day. A separate shower cubicle is also available, with a wash basin and vanity unit set alongside a WC.
Peacefully set to the rear of the first floor is a third bedroom. Warm and cosy, with a striking poppy red feature wall, this bedroom overlooks the garden and has the added bonus of containing its own sink.
Sneak a peek up to the penthouse floor, where two more bedrooms await…
Located on the second floor of the home, a landing area contains ample storage within cupboards nestled in the eaves.
To the rear, two well-proportioned bedrooms look out over the garden and out to the distant countryside beyond.
Serving both these bedrooms is a super-modern shower room tiled in buff marblesque tones to the floor and walls. Also containing a wash basin and WC, this room is superbly lit courtesy of a large rear window.
Work from home? Keep business and home life balanced by containing your work to the L-shaped study, located to the front of the property on the second floor and amply lit by a Velux window.
Step outside and explore the large garden to the rear. Mainly laid to lawn, this garden is ideal for those with children or pets; plenty of running around space here.
Soak up the summer sunshine on the raised decking, or invite friends round for barbecues and soirees on the paved patio.
