More than that, Pine Lodge stands proud at the entrance to Stanley Avenue on a considerably large garden plot. A house that stands proud both for its huge appeal as much as for how very different in style of architecture to those properties to be found along Stanley Avenue; for all, or most are different in one way or another. As we say, Pine Lodge is different in many ways.
We'd like to draw your attention straight away to our floor plan below to affirm our comments as to how deceiving in size Pine Lodge is. And so with four reception rooms and five bedrooms a house of this proportion requires, in our view, a sensible proportion of family garden to match and we're confident you'll not be disappointed - rather taken in by both scale, privacy, orientation and maintenance.
But first to some detail of the internal accommodation, although we hope our slide show of photographs and floor plan provide suitable information to tempt that first viewing...
Traditional in the main, with gorgeous floors, polished wood work and plenty of windows to maximise the views to all aspects of this large garden plot. A hall, split into entrance and access to a rather special cloakroom and beyond to an extraordinary large combined living with conservatory room; to the left towards both the front dining room and sitting room.
From the main hall area access to the right leads onto the morning room, with an aspect onto another stretch of private garden. From here an opening leads onto the kitchen. Kitchen that was renewed 2011 by Panorama Kitchens; a kitchen that has smart Corian work surfaces and an enviable range of units (cooling drawers included); a recessed Range cooker and much much more including Amtico flooring, a high spec' integrated lighting system and the piece de resistance for many: a walk in pantry.
Better still is a long operational utility room leading on to the 'boiler room' (16 month old boiler in situ') and second wc. Access to the rear garden from here too.
Returning to the 'reception rooms' and in particular the original front dining room and sitting room. Both really sensibly proportioned entertaining rooms in their time and now. The third living room with added conservatory however, is something else. Talk about inside meeting out. Sitting snug in here (open fireplace included) and you can take in a 180 degree vista of the garden, all year round.
More surprises upstairs with four true double sized bedrooms at first floor. Two have en suite facilities, both modern although the master bedroom en suite wins for size, finish, underfloor heating and general luxury. (The off spring that wins the rear bedroom with en suite wont be disappointed with its neutral gender decor and especially the black and white terrazzo like floor).
The main bathroom is also something else and a lighting system to suit - both skirt and down lights along with lit and de-misting mirror, plus under floor heating. Yes it's the little things that make all the difference.
Up again and to a fifth double sized bedroom, built so - no loft conversion has taken place here. There is however further space to utilise (as if all this wouldn't suffice most) with access to a boarded and floored loft area making great storage facilities, space for the train set or even perhaps ready for conversion into en suite No.3 sometime in the future?
Outdoors and you can see the parking out to the front left hand side of Pine Lodge. What you first wont appreciate is how the drive then follows on passed the house along the boundary of the south west side of the garden and up to the very bottom. We're told up to 10 cars can park comfortably without any manoeuvring; we can believe it. To the very bottom stands a double garage adjacent to which is a fully operational 'Summer House' (light and power). A great place to commandeer for some study/office space or just some r & r....before the kids highjack it.
And the gardens? Well, just beautiful.
Let's start with schooling, high on the agenda for most. Pine Lodge sits more or less equidistant between Wirral Grammar and either Birkenhead School, BHSA or St Anselm's. With regards to work in the city of Liverpool or Chester, the tunnel for the former is ten minutes away and the M53 for the latter five. For Sat Nav: CH63 5QF
