Property Description

This attractive period cottage occupies a delightful and highly sought after village location, a few miles to the south east of Knutsford, with lovely views to the front over adjoining farmland.

Behind its Victorian facade is an unexpected expanse of superb, extended accommodation, that combines to form a very comfortable and highly impressive home. An internal inspection is highly recommended to fully appreciate the space and quality of this charming home.

The accommodation benefits from the modern day comforts of a bottled LPG fired central heating with a mixture of wood and uPVC double glazed windows and briefly comprises: an entrance lobby, a well proportioned lounge with tall beamed ceiling and modern electric fire, a magnificent 23' open plan dining kitchen with attractive ceiling lantern, and fitted with an excellent range of David Lisle units and matching island unit, all complemented by granite worktops. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a useful shower/utility room and a pleasant sitting room/office with multi-fuel burning stove to one end, a fitted range of solid English oak office furniture, again by David Lisle, to the other, and double doors that open into the wonderful landscaped rear garden. The first floor landing affords access to two double bedrooms, both featuring fitted wardrobes, and a large bathroom, which is fitted with a period style three piece suite and separate shower cubicle. The property benefits from a fully integrated monitored ADT alarm. We understand from the vendors that the contract could be migrated.

The cottage is set well back from the lane and stands behind a small, lawned front garden, whilst to the rear is the previously mentioned landscaped garden that is an absolute delight and features attractive slate terracing, beautifully stocked flower beds, specimen trees and a slate pathway that leads to the garage, situated to the far end of the garden.

Over Peover is a delightful rural village well known for its two country pubs - The Dog and the Parkgate Inn. There is an excellent local primary school and pre-school nursery and the area is rich in country walks. A wide range of shopping and other facilities are available in Knutsford, Wilmslow, Alderley Edge and Macclesfield, all of which are within convenient reach. There is an access point to the M6 motorway at Tabley (junction 19) some 7 miles away.

Chelford railway station on the main Manchester-Crewe-London line is some two miles away.

From the roundabout centre of Knutsford proceed along King Edward road to the traffic lights by the railway station and continue straight ahead onto Toft Road following this out of the town. Having passed Radbroke Hall on the left hand side, turn left there after by the whipping stocks onto Stocks Lane. Follow Stocks Lane into the centre of the village and at the cross roads by the school turn right onto Clay Lane. Laundry Cottage is then the second property on the right hand side.
