A delightful period cottage set in the heart of Altrincham. Calabar Cottage is a charming period semi-detached property set in a beautiful garden and enjoying an enviable location on this quiet yet central Altrincham Road. Dating back to the turn of the century, the house now requires some modernisation/updating and offers splendid versatile light and airy accommodation and the perfect blank canvas for an incoming buyer to make their own. Accommodation includes a spacious reception hall, three generous reception rooms, a kitchen with breakfast area, a large understairs storage area, five bedrooms and a bathroom with separate WC. To the second floor there is a large loft room which has been used as a studio along with ample storage. The house retains a wealth of character and enjoys features including panelled doors, stained glass and sash windows. There is ample space for extension and alterations to individual tastes subject to the necessary permissions. The pretty front garden is filled with an array of flowering bushes and trees, and access to the garage with parking in front for one car. To the rear the walled gardens are a true hidden gem and have a delightful aspect. Directly to the rear there is a large patio area, ideal for relaxing in the summer sun, with the rest of the garden being laid to lawn with many mature borders filled with shrubs, trees and flower beds - all helping to create a picture postcard setting. There is also a boiler room and outside utility area which could easily be incorporated within the house.
