Property Details

Smithy Green House is a stunning country property situated in the heart of some of Cheshire's most sought after countryside yet is only a short distance from Knutsford and also has good access to the motorway network, airport and some of the areas finest country pubs and walks.

As the name suggests, the property is located at Smithy Green with its lovely and distinctive green to the front of the property and the house stands within beautifully manicured formal gardens and grounds of about 1 acre. These are mainly laid to lawn with a mature rose garden surrounded by Buxus and Yew hedgerow giving a focal point to the garden from the main patio area and this is complemented by a Japanese style garden with pond and summerhouse with this area surrounded by an orchard and wild flower garden. There is also a very well maintained tennis court. Beyond the house is the paddock which extends to around 4.5 acres and is flat with water laid on and also has separate vehicular access from Smithy Green making it particularly suitable to those with an equestrian interest. In addition, our clients have applied for planning permission (application number 22/2117M - Cheshire East Council) for a large portal framed stable building to include stables, tack room and field shelter to be constructed just beyond the field entrance from Smithy Green. A decision is expected imminently from the local authority.

The house itself is very well appointed with rooms of pleasing proportions and is constructed of mellowed brick under a slated roof with the accommodation warmed by mains gas fired central heating. The arrangement of the accommodation is briefly as follows: Covered porch with oak front door opening a traditional reception hall with stone flagged floor. Off this is a cloakroom with WC and a lovely Orangery which overlooks the formal gardens. The inner hall gives access to the kitchen which is fitted to a high standard with hand painted Martin Moore furniture and access from the kitchen is a very useful utility room with space for an American Style fridge freezer. The inner hall thereafter gives access to the dining room with Morso wood burning stove and this room has a lovely traditional feel with exposed beams and also gives access to the formal sitting room with open fire and windows to 3 elevations. There is a small cellar area whilst to the first floor, the landing leads to a stunning master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, Juliet style balcony and fitted wardrobes and there is an en suite bathroom. Bedroom 2 provides an excellent guest suite also having an en suite bathroom and there are two further bedrooms, family bathroom and a further washroom on this floor. To the second floor is a further bedroom suite with en suite shower room and this would make an excellent children's bedroom if required tucked away at the top of the house.

Outside, the property is approached through a stunning gateway with electric gates and a gravelled driveway provides parking for several vehicles. This in turn leads to the detached barn which is in very good order throughout having been re-roofed in recent years and currently provides stabling, a garage and workshop together with additional 1st floor accommodation. The barn could provide tremendous further potential for conversion into additional living accommodation or even a separate dwelling (subject to planning permission) and behind the barn is a timber tandem garage with light and power.
