Standing well back from a lightly wooded service road, on the edge of this popular modern development, this extended detached family house is flanked by larger than average gardens, particularly to the rear, which are south facing and very private being totally enclosed by timber fencing and mature tall trees.
Over recent years the property has been extended to the side, providing an extra reception room and study to the ground floor and a master suite to the first. The property has been sympathetically styled by the current owners, offering adaptable accomodation for the family.
The property is within close reach of the cosmopolitan town of Knutsford, an old market town rich in heritage and brimming with a variety of architectural features, particularly those built in an Italianate Tuscan style by the famous local architect, Richard Harding Watt. Linked by a web of ginnels, cobbles and courtyards, the two main streets are home to a variety of shops ranging from boutiques to antique shops, purveyors of fine wines and chocolate to art galleries and interior design specialists. There are however, a few familiar sites of larger multiple retail supermarket outlets, including Booths and Boots. Evenings in Knutsford are very lively with many fine wine bars, pubs and restaurants catering for most tastes. For the outdoor enthusiast, Knutsford borders some of Cheshire's most beautiful countryside and has the famous Tatton Park Country Estate on its doorstep with its Regency mansion, glorious gardens, traditional farm and medieval old hall. The town centre offers Leisure Centre facilities as well as numerous private sporting clubs and notable golf courses within easy reach. For the commuter, access to the nearby North West motorway network is readily available, as is Manchester International Airport and the rail station has links to Chester and Manchester. Excellent education facilities cater for children of most ages in both the state and private sectors.
From the roundabout in Canute Square travel along King Edward Road (A50), turning left at the traffic lights, passing the rail station. Proceed through the next lights up Brook Street turning immediately left at the brow of the hill onto Mobberley Road, opposite The Legh Arms public house. Turn first right onto Manor Park South and follow the road round to your left, passing St Vincent's Primary School on your left, turning right onto Higher Downs where the property will then be seen on your right.
