Believed to date back some 400 years or so, The Old Nunnery is a magnificent Grade II listed home that is brimming with local historical significance & wonderful, elegant period detail.
Set across three floors (plus cellars) the home provides a simply astonishing 6932 square feet of living space, making it not only much larger but also unlike anything else on the market right now.
Enjoying considerable kerb appeal via its impressive, imposing look & set behind a large sweeping driveway & electric gates along the highly prized Orrell Road, the property would suit a large family needing lots of space, or because of its size, possibly someone looking for a mixed use building where they could run a business from & live in at the same time. The home also offers the potential to be converted into a number of large apartments too, all subject to the necessary planning approval.
Lovingly restored by the owner a number of years ago, our client has sympathetically reinstated much of the character and period detail of the home, working with English Heritage & in line with the Grade II listing to make sure the property fully represents the age and significance of its history.
The ground floor alone here offers in excess of 2000 SQFT & each room is beautifully presented, boasting ornate coved ceilings, elegant panelled walls, and feature fireplaces. There are four reception rooms and a kitchen on the ground floor plus a Grade II listed wc. A wonderful listed original staircase gives access to the first and second floors, which provide no less than nine bedrooms, plus an additional kitchen & four bathrooms.
There are astonishing brick arched cellars under the house too which are larger than most standard semi-detached homes & provide precious storage.
Externally the overall plot is impressive here, with gardens located to the front and rear, plus there is ample off road parking to the side.
Internal inspection is essential on this truly unique property. FREEHOLD.
