VIDEO TOUR NOW AVAILABLE:

Sitting on a substantial plot of approximately 12 acres lies “Beech Farm”, an outstanding Country House that occupies a superb idyllic location, yet only 4 miles from Knutsford and Alderley Edge. This property is nestled deep within the plot providing a tranquil yet versatile home. The property has two impressive tree lined driveways – the main is approached through double electric wrought iron gates leading to a long hornbeam/lined gravelled entrance drive. The secondary beech lined drive is also operated by an electric gate and is equally as attractive, with both drives culminating at a gravelled circular parking and vehicle turning area to the front of the house. The grounds really do have to be seen to be fully appreciated.
