Dating back to the early 18th Century, Rockcliffe Wood House is a Grade II listed building bursting with character and with beautiful presentation throughout. It has been sympathetically upgraded to respect its provenance, preserving the past, whilst offering up to date fixtures and fittings.
The main entrance leads you through a vestibule into a kitchen / dining room. This good size, welcoming space containing solid wood fixtures, NEFF appliances, granite surfaces and a Belfast sink complete with Rangemaster taps is warmed by a gas fuelled Aga. Original features include mullioned windows, salt cupboard and original beams. A stone staircase leads upstairs to a landing area which accesses Bedroom 1, a bathroom and the larger Bedroom 2.
The kitchen can also be exited into a spacious lounge containing a solid wood floor, a local Whitworth Blue stone fire place and its original beams. Through the lounge the east side of the house is accessed via a Victorian tiled hallway, off which is a wooden floored dining room / study, spacious utility room with additional outside access, and a barrel-vaulted wine cellar.
A staircase leads through the hallway to a further landing space accessing Bedroom 3 with a dressing room and shower room. All bedrooms boast fantastic views across the valley.
Externally, the property offers mature gardens to the side, rear and front. The side garden contains a detached stone store (originally the boiler house), and a green house. To the east side of the property there is former stabling, an ample parking area, walled garden and an off road driveway. The old stables offer extensive additional storage and potential for further use (subject to necessary consents).
With fields to the rear, the property is positioned on Wesley Place, easily accessed a short distance
from Newchurch Road. A range of amenities is available nearby, as are commuter routes and public
transport links, while being set away from the main road affords the property a comparatively
peaceful sense at the same time. This is a fantastic property enjoying a great setting, for which viewing in person is certainly, highly recommended.
