Formerly the home of F.E Smith, Earl of Birkenhead, this deceptively spacious period house offers a huge amount of character and potential to create a lovely family home or alternatively refurbish as apartments or individual rooms. The property was for many years occupied as a family home and more recently as eight bedsits. It is situated on the corner of Clifton Road and Hollybank Road in an established residential area boasting many fine period homes in the Clifton Park conservation area. Whilst the house is in need of a sympathetic restoration programme, many original features remain including an impressive stain glass window, stone mullions, wood block and flagged floors and cast-iron fireplaces, a twisted stone chimney stack and plastered mouldings. The property merits an early inspection to appreciate its many fine qualities and its potential for a variety of residential purposes.
