      This double fronted property has a fascinating history and while the main structure is believed to be pre-Georgian with a later Victorian extension it is probably earlier with a superb Jacobean staircase which is one of the principal architectural features of the house. The property was once part of the Vernon Estate in Poynton and is reputed to have its origins as a coaching inn on what was once the main London to Manchester route. The original stables were converted to separate properties many years ago.
      The accommodation is arranged over three floors and extends to the rear on the ground floor providing the breakfast kitchen with its informal dining area. The ground floor has three well-proportioned reception rooms, two of which have dual aspects and fireplaces. A study and the hall complete the original ground floor. A reduced height access leads to the dining kitchen, utility room and a cloakroom with WC is accessed from the study.
      There are three double bedrooms at first floor level with a house bathroom and a separate washroom with a WC and wash hand basin. The second floor features two full depth rooms alongside a part completed bathroom, not currently operational and will not be prior to the sale. This floor offers tremendous scope to create a self-contained suite of rooms for a teenager or two further bedrooms, with Velux skylights and airy vaulted ceilings.
      An outbuilding/garage store lies to the rear of the parking area at the rear and the shared access drive leads down the side of the house. The gardens lie mainly to the rear and side where they are mainly lawned with a variety of shrubs and specimen trees. The grounds are nearly half an acre in size with open countryside beyond leading down the valley to Norbury Brook to the north.
