A stunning Grade II listed Italianate villa situated on the town's premier road, formerly the home of renowned architect Richard Harding-Watt. Brimming with unique architectural design and character sitting in beautiful formal grounds of up to one acre with elevated views over Sanctuary Moor and the town. Richard Harding-Watt designed and built many of the architecturally important properties and buildings within the town such as the Kings Coffee House and the Gaskell Memorial Tower, now the home of the Belle Époque restaurant. The Round House forms part of a row of properties built by Harding-Watt between 1900-1907, being the second constructed and his actual residence until 1913. This unique property with its projecting round tower faces the formal gardens, set off from the corner of the main three storey block of the property with irregular fenestration of lights, some with heavy stone lintels, randomly projecting blocks of stone, and irregular embattled parapet. The property is further enhanced by paired unaligned windows to the ground floor of the tower and first floor, paired ionic pilasters each side of the front doors with round-arched stair window to the right of the doorway. The property currently extends to almost 4,000 sq. ft. with accommodation over four floors, flexible in use with generous proportions to the reception rooms and bedroom and has been sympathetically improved and maintained over the years by the current owners.Previously there has been permission granted (Cheshire East, 15/5671M) for an extension and remodelling to the ground and lower ground floors in a subterranean design to provide further reception space and the relocation of the kitchen, sympathetic to the original design and style of the property.
