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.

Fern Cliff was built in 1869

“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.

The property retains many of its original fittings

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.” 

But it’s not just about the history and the huge amount of space inside, the garden is also something to behold.Set back on a long, private drive, according to the advert, Fern Cliff is surrounded by Rhododendrons and various mature trees. 
 
And if you look hard enough there is even an idyllic, secret garden at the back of the property, perfect for lounging on those summer days.

And if that wasn’t enough, there is a separate ‘coach house’ boasting a further four rooms.
