      The Cedars is one of Alderley Edge's grandest villas, originally home to the famed Pilkington Glass family and arguably the finest property of its type in the village. The private setting, amazing views and grounds of nearly two acres reflect this stature.
      The mansion is set behind electric security gates and is well placed for access to the thriving village centre and the railway station, less than half a mile away, with its service to Manchester and the airport, linking to the main west coast line at Wilmslow.
      The village is renowned for its excellent restaurants, bistros and bars, the cricket and tennis club and its well-stocked Waitrose supermarket. Wilmslow offers more comprehensive shopping facilities only two miles down the road, along with its station placing London Euston about 1hr 52minutes away.
      Sporting, recreational and educational facilities abound in the area and the Peak National Park is a short drive away. This quiet cobbled lane leads up to The Edge, a woodland conservation area once owned by the Pilkingtons, but now managed by the National Trust and ideal for country walks or dog walking.

      Ashley forms one of the principal sections of this fine house and retains the original impressive entrance hall with its fantastic ornate vaulted ceiling. Arranged over three floors with soaring arches and astonishing ceiling mouldings this is a distinctive and graceful home; perfect for those with a second home seeking a secure base but not prepared to compromise on style.
      The well-presented and beautifully proportioned include a top quality, recently fitted contemporary kitchen with integrated appliances, a basement study or cinema room, plenty of storage and the magnificent main reception room. The generous principal bedroom has a large, well-appointed en suite bathroom and the double guest bedroom, also fitted, uses the house bathroom.
      The views from the kitchen to the Pennines are breathtaking and only matched by the outstanding gardens with wonderful trees, lawns and a sweeping gated driveway to the garage, private and guest parking areas.
