Tower Croft – A Unique Villa for Sale in Marple

One of the advantages of working in the property market is being able to take a unique look at some of the fascinating homes that come up for sale across the North West. Tower Croft is no exception, with its prominent architectural flourishes and charming historical character – it’s a stunning property not to be missed!

A Family Home With a Rich History

Tower Croft (116a Church Lane) is a remarkable family home built in 1891 and set in the highly sought-after town of Marple.

The house was originally constructed as one of two impressive villas on either side of Mount Drive during the 1890s, however, the property’s ‘sister villa’ was sadly ultimately demolished when its then-owner died leaving no descendants. The space once occupied by the villa now houses the Rectory Court retirement home.

Throughout its history, Tower Croft has provided a home for several families of medical doctors. One of the property’s many original features, an etched glass doorway in the entrance porch, alludes to this by announcing it as the entrance to ‘The Surgery’.

Other features of Tower Croft offer further clues pointing to its medical history. The property includes a separate stable block, tack room and twin garages, providing ample room for additional rooms for storage, games rooms or offices. The stables and tack room were originally used by doctors, who would depart to visit patients using horses and carriages.

Today the modern garages provide shelter for cars and bikes, while the remaining buildings offer great potential for several uses.

In its recent history, Tower Croft has continued to serve as a comfortable family home with close links to the heart of the local community in Marple. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, the property was the family home of its current vendors, with their father working as the Headmaster of Marple Hall School.

With the property coming to market, Tower Croft is ready to welcome a new family into the home and begin the next exciting chapter in an already impressive history.
