A Victorian stately home — and one that’s still in its original condition, just a half hour drive from Manchester and indeed, in a town that’s on a train route to that same city. Apparently it was up with a previous agent for £1.6 million, but now it’s a fraction of that money. Oh yes, it was also designed by the same architect behind Sandringham (AJ Humbert presumably), which has got to be worth a few status points.
Woodlands dates back to 1860, a former mill owner’s pile and one that obviously had some money lavished on it once — check out that original oak staircase, panelling and parquet flooring, not to mention the stained glass. This is opulence from a bygone era — the kind of thing you’d rarely find today, although work would need doing on the place to give it the real
wow factor and to make it a liveable home.
Great as a huge home, not to mention impressive as a boutique hotel or wedding venue. The price is amazing value at £450,000 — and with the house being on the market for six months, you could bag it for even less — via WowHaus
