Copper Folly - the Wilmslow home where Alan Turing lived and died - is for sale for just over one million pounds.

The Victorian five-bedroom home was owned until 1954 by cryptographer Alan Turing, who is credited for decoding Nazi messages during the Second World War.

The stunning period property of historical significance can be yours for £1.1 million.

Aside the large amount of bedrooms and cultural importance, the property contains three sofas and three bathrooms.

Three reception rooms and an open plan dining kitchen with granite work surfaces completes the interior of the property.

Copper Folly comprises of four floors, including a basement.

Additional rooms include a cloackroom, utility room, and a space with potential to become leisure or office space.

Outside, there is a blocked paved driveway offering extensive parking options, along with gorgeous walled landscaped gardens.

But perhaps the star attraction of the home is the smallest feature of note, the blue plaque which sits upon Cheshire brick.

It reads "Alan Turing 1912-1954. Founder of computer science and cryptographer, whose work was key to breaking the wartime Enigma codes, lived and died here".

The Adlington Road abode is being sold by Savills, who have a Wilmslow office on Water Lane.

"Copper Folly is an outstanding Victorian residence," the listing states.

"Set in a private position away from the main road, this imposing five bedroom semi-detached property has been renovated to a superb standard throughout, retaining many original features.

"Externally, the property is sat in spectacular walled garden grounds with mature trees offering a high degree of privacy."

Property agent Andrew Thorpe described the house which has just came to market as: "A stunning period home of historical importance".

Any enquiries can be made to Mr Thorpe via +44 (0) 1625 417 450.

Andrew has been with the award-winning Savills Wilmslow since 2014.
