A beautiful Grade II Listed family home with walled gardens, large detached annexe and building plot on 0.59 acre
The Gables is a wonderful 17th Century Grade II Listed timber framed family home that sits on a York sandstone plinth with mullion windows and leaded lattice windows. The Gables was removed from Plumley near Knutsford and re-erected on this site in 1974.
This 5 bedroom home has character features throughout and includes exposed timber frame, feature A frame and beautiful fireplaces.
The Gables offers deceptively spacious accommodation that includes an open entrance hallway, leading to the two dual aspect substantial reception rooms with feature fireplaces sitting centrally to both reception rooms. The dining room has a wood burning stove and the drawing room has an open fireplace. The kitchen/breakfast room offers an array of matching units and an informal dining area. The ground floor is completed with a utility room and WC.
The first floor is accessed via two separate stair cases, one leading to the master bedroom, whilst the second leads to three bedrooms and family bathroom. A further hidden stairway gives access to the second floor where the fifth bedroom is located.
The property sits back from the road with a stunning cottage garden rose hedged boundary. The timber gated entrance leads to a stone flagged parking and turning area to the side and rear of the house. A pretty mature garden lies to the front with flower borders surrounding the front lawn. The majority of the gardens lie to the rear, with a south westerly facing aspect and a wide stone terrace. A mature flower bed surrounds the lawned area, which lies between the stone terrace and a high
Cheshire brick rear wall that provides excellent privacy.
Also located in the rear garden is the large versatile annexe which provides four usable rooms, perfect gym, home office, self-contained accommodation or media rooms.
An extensive building plot, set in an incredibly private location of approximately 0.59 of an acre. Planning permission is granted for a five bedroom house and there is potentially a further plot beyond (subject to planning).
The building plot is accessed via double gates off Goostrey Lane and down a long walled driveway that runs parallel with The Gables.
The building plot and orchard have numerous fruit trees and fruit cordons.
Originally planning permission was granted in 1996 (application number 27865/3) for the erection of a five bedroom house measuring about 2250 sq ft, with final renewal in November 2006 of planning consent number 33727/6. The planning is understood to be extant as the detached double garage for the house has already been built by the current owners.
The plot backs onto an orchard area which has its own separate agricultural access off Twemlow Lane. There may be potential for this area to be further developed (Subject to Planning & Regulations).
