Full description

Believed to date from 1850, but with unmistakable Georgian elevations, this detached Period property not only provides wonderful and considerably extended family accommodation, but it also provides the best of both worlds when it comes to its location – open farmland is situated across the road, but at the same time, the centre of Congleton is but a couple of minutes drive away.

Although a number of original features remain intact, in more recent times, a substantial rear extension has totally transformed the property to one more appropriate for 21st Century living, but at the same time, due concession was shown to the property’s origins and in fact, it is almost difficult to determine where the extension begins.
