    About this property

    • Fox Covert is a classically crafted and imposing 1930's family home which has retained much of its period charm and character. Sitting on one of the finest roads in Alderley Edge, the house is set back from Congleton Road behind electric gates and stone walls. The sweeping driveway leads down to the property where there is a double garage and further parking for several vehicles.

      Bespoke built, Fox Covert has been extended and refurbished during its time and provides 4590 sq ft of detailed and immaculately presented accommodation over two floors. There are some impressive features inherent in a property of this period including lovely room proportions, high ceilings and decorative cornicing and panelling. Modern design features include flooring by Arighi Bianchi, a bespoke Neville Johnson crafted staircase, high quality Duravit bathrooms, Oak doors throughout and windows furnished with plantation shutters.

      A picturesque Italian door leads from the attractive portico into the spacious and welcoming reception hall. A large cloakroom lies off to the left with a separate stylish W.C. Off to the right is the impressive dining kitchen which leads into a delightful pitched orangery. The kitchen is bespoke designed with traditional hand painted inframe kitchen units appointed around a central island perfect for informal dining. There is a comprehensive range of appliances including a two oven gas AGA, Neff oven and warming drawer, Bosch integrated dishwasher and space for an American fridge/freezer. The kitchen opens into the stunning orangery with Velux window with bi folding doors leading to the terrace. The glass orangery floods the room with natural light and offers elevated and commanding views over the gardens and countryside beyond.

      The formal dining room and sitting room lie off the main hallway, both rooms are superbly proportioned and capture the glorious views with French doors providing direct access to the garden. Of particular note is the stunning triple aspect living room. This room features a high ceiling, wall panelling, intricate cornicing, bay window seating and a decorative stone hearth and wood burning stove creating an inviting and relaxing atmosphere. This room is well placed to enjoy front, side and rear views in an elevated superior position.
      A beautifully designed staircase by Neville Johnson leads to the galleried and generous first floor landing which leads to six bedrooms and four bathrooms.

      The principal bedroom suite is of significant proportions with a long bank of fitted wardrobes, a separate dressing area and a spacious contemporary ensuite bathroom with free standing bath, over-sized shower cubicle and porcelain floor to ceiling tiles. The principal bedroom occupies the left wing of the house with incredible far reaching countryside views. Bedroom two, sharing the same views also features fitted wardrobes, a modern ensuite shower room. Bedroom three sits at the front of the property and is served by the well-appointed house bathroom.

      A door to the end of the main upstairs landing leads to bedrooms five and six and a beautifully appointed family bathroom. A separate stairwell leads from these rooms to the ground floor where there is also a separate access front door with boot room. This versatile layout provides great scope to create ancillary accommodation for independent living or dependent relatives if required.
