A beautifully presented Grade II Regency villa set in a discreet position within the sought-after village of Prestbury, offering substantial family accommodation, parking and a pretty garden.
Idsall House is a classic, Grade II listed, Regency villa that typifies the splendour and elegance one would expect from a home of this era. The property has been restored with great care. Particular thought has been given to an innovative layout which offers the grandeur and proportions of the period combining beautifully with a modern finish ideal for contemporary living. At 6,191 Sq Ft, this home is as impressive internally as it is externally. Undeniably, the appeal of such a home is the exceptional accommodation which flows with such ease and offers the flexibility to use as required.
Entrance is gained through a pedimented stone porch opening onto a spacious ground floor reception hall with a fabulous cantilevered staircase rising to the upper levels. The double drawing room has the classic triple aspect bowed window with sash inserts, picture rails and ceiling moldings. This grand room has a fireplace and views over the garden. To the rear of the house the spectacular kitchen has high specification units, a large island with polished granite worktops with a built-in sink and quality appliances. This room is the real hub of the house, opening onto the adjacent dining room, it is the ideal space to entertain also enjoying a vista and access to the garden. A further substantial cinema/family room and cloakroom complete the accommodation on this floor.
The lower ground floor is an excellent extension to the principal reception area and is exceptionally light with access to outside from both the bedroom and the study. There are two double bedrooms, a study, a luxurious shower room in addition to a wine room, utility and an area currently arranged as a gymnasium. Whilst the accommodation is very much incorporated as part of the main house, access can be gained from outside which allows more self-contained usage.
Upstairs on the first floor there is a magnificent master bedroom suite with dressing room and the most luxurious en-suite bathroom designed in a Spa style with twin basin units and a walk in wet shower. The spacious landing is arranged in mezzanine levels giving a sense of space. The guest bedroom benefits from an en suite shower room. A family bathroom serves the remaining two double bedrooms in addition to a separate shower room.
The splendour of Idsall House is apparent from first sight. Approached via electric wrought iron gates and a long gravel driveway providing off road parking for several cars. Stone walling and mature hedging bound the house and gardens. The garden is an excellent expanse of lawn set to the front providing a lovely vista to the principal reception rooms and main bedrooms. A paved terrace is accessed from the kitchen and leads onto the lawned gardens, providing the perfect spot to dine al fresco.
