Do you struggle to find space for all the family to sleep when they visit at Christmas?
If so, this could be the house you’re looking for – providing you’ve got a spare £1.5m knocking about.
Spread across a whopping 6,997sq ft and boasting 10 bedrooms, it’s a building you might expect to find on a Royal estate rather than a Stockport suburb.
Fern Cliff, in Heaton Moor, is one of the biggest houses in Greater Manchester.
The stunning mansion – which is on the market valued at £1,475,000 – has been a fixture in Heaton Moor since Queen Victoria was on the throne.
It was once even home to the former Lord Mayor of Manchester, Sir James Hoy, back in 1894, who lived in the house for over 20 years.
And due to its heritage and colossal size, the property has always been the centre of attention for parties.
Julian Bethell, director at Julian Wadden Estate Agents, told the Manchester Evening News : “Over the years it has been the heart of the family for celebrations of all kinds.
“Family Christmases, New Year parties, tennage cellar parties, father’s day barbecues in the beautiful garden as well as a Golden Wedding and a 90th birthday party.”
Fern Cliff was eventually sold to its current occupants in 1948, and they have lived there ever since.
Despite it being almost 150 years old, it has managed to retain many of its original 1869 fittings, such as intricate stain-glassed windows and ornate tiles.
Mr Bethell said: “It is a grand old lady of a house in need of some repair but offers a magnificent and utterly unique home in Heaton Moor.”
And if that wasn’t enough, there is a separate ‘coach house’ boasting a further four rooms.
