Detached family home in pretty area of Sale, outskirts of Manchester home swap

The house a spacious 3 bedroom house is located on a pleasant road in Sale which is on the South of Manchester, bordering Cheshire. The house is ideally located for a city break since it is only 5 miles from Manchester City Centre or a more active family break.

The house is part of a pretty estate of unusual designed striking black and white Danish houses. It is detached and has 2 living rooms, one which is very family friendly with boxes of toys and 50" tv and the second which is a more civilised adult room. The kitchen is large modern room with double oven, microwave, hob, dishwasher and dining table with 4 chairs and high chair. Upstairs there is a family bathroom with power shower over the bath and bedrooms, 2 double rooms (one currently has a mattress on floor rather than bed) and children's bedroom with a single bed and cot and loads of books and toys. I can provide airbeds and travel cot if more beds are required. There is a pleasant garden with lots of toys.

The house is not perfect but a spacious, pleasant and practical family home with stair gates at top and bottom of stairs. There is Wifi and Amazon prime is available on the TV.
