Situation

Pownall Hall Farm is set within a quiet and private oasis less than 1 mile from the thriving centre of this well regarded Cheshire town. A more discreet and secluded setting is difficult to imagine for one of the town's principal properties. Pownall Hall Preparatory School and highly regarded Gorsey Bank Primary School are close by in addition to popular Lindow Common, Wilmslow Rugby Club and the Bollin Valley. Access to the M56 and Manchester International Airport are especially easy from the west of the town. Wilmslow has both Waitrose and Sainsburys supermarkets and is renowned for its excellent shopping, restaurants and bars with Marks & Spencer at Handforth Dean and John Lewis at Cheadle both a short drive away. The leisure centre and mainline train station (London Euston 1hr 52mins) are close to the town centre and within reasonable walking distance.

This area of Cheshire is one of the most popular for those working in and around Manchester as well as many of the North West's commercial centres, with easy access via the motorway network. Its proximity to the airport is also influential in attracting regular international travellers. There are numerous golf courses, livery and sporting facilities and the Peak National Park is within striking distance for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits.

Popular schools in the area include Wilmslow High School, Kings School Macclesfield, Cheadle Hulme School, Manchester Grammar and High School and Withington Girls School. Many provide coaches from the town or are accessible by rail from Wilmslow station.


Description

This magnificent home was rebuilt in recent years to our clients exacting specification. Finished in Cheshire brick with Tudor style elevations the house has a wonderful Arts and Crafts interior with exceptional bespoke woodwork, panelling and flooring. Designed for modern living yet retaining styling cues from the best of the past, Pownall Hall Farm is an outstanding statement of specifically commissioned craftsmanship.

Equally suited to entertaining as to family living, the 10,000 sq ft of accommodation in the main house includes both comfortable and formal reception rooms, a self contained staff or dependent suite and a wonderful leisure suite providing a large pool, Jacuzzi, Gym and Sauna with changing. This adjoins a beautifully panelled snooker room/library and bar area with a private staircase to the master bedroom suite.

The grounds extend to about 1.22 acres and have been exquisitely landscaped with the same uncompromising attention to detail as the house. They provide individual sections with a surprise around every corner, al-fresco entertaining areas, a hard tennis court, water features and a pond, bridges, a productive vegetable area, box parterre and rolling lawns. The main approach to the house from the gated driveway is via the expansive block paved parking/turning area with garaging and a brick paved path leading through a gothic arched gateway over a footbridge to the main courtyard at the front of the house.

A self contained 'barn' lies within the grounds providing fantastic space for a home office suite or teenage retreat with its own kitchen, bathroom and occasional bedroom and sitting room areas within the galleried mezzanine area.

This is a unique and very special home in a fantastic location for access to the town's amenities.

Accommodation

The Gothic arched entrance lobby with a Minton tiled floor has a specially commissioned leaded & stained glass panelled oak door opening to the main galleried hall. An elegant bespoke staircase leads up the galleried landing and Arts & Crafts style glazed oak doors open to the drawing room to the right. There is a small cloakroom with a w.c. below the staircase.

The drawing room is wonderfully proportioned with a beamed ceiling and oak flooring, plenty of space for a baby grand piano and has a simply stunning fireplace with an exquisite inlaid marble hearth. There are two sets of bespoke oak window seats and two French doors leading out to the stone flagged courtyard area to the front.

Matching double doors lead out from the drawing room to the snooker room/library. This super room has wide oak floor boards and lovely bespoke oak panelling with library shelving, a cleverly concealed wet bar and a wine fridge. A private staircase leads up to the master bedroom suite and double doors open through to the leisure area.

The main hall leads off to the left to an inner hall area providing access to the living kitchen. Off this hall there is the bespoke fitted study with oak furniture, a curved desk, library shelving, fitted cupboards and filing drawers. The dining room is attractively proportioned and features oak herring-bone floors and French windows to the courtyard area.

The living kitchen area is bathed in light from the hardwood conservatory style roof and is beautifully appointed with a bespoke range of cupboards with integrated appliances and a top quality Falcon range cooker. There are granite surfaces and limestone floors extending into the informal family dining area and the sitting room area beyond. This has craftsman made cupboards and an AV unit with a wood burning stove and a pair of French doors opening out to the stone flagged terrace.

A door leads off the kitchen to an inner hall area which in turn leads through to a second cloakroom with a w.c., the well appointed utility room and a boiler room beyond. To the left of this hall area is a large boot room with a wine store beyond.

The leisure area connects to the house via a pair of double doors from the snooker room. This is a splendid mainly glazed area with a large swimming pool and Roman steps, a Jacuzzi area, plant room, air conditioned gym and sauna with a changing room, shower and w.c. Recessed double bi-fold doors open out to the stone terrace to the front of the house.

The main landing area is approached by the ornate staircase from the hall and a screen to the front gives access to a delightful seating area with fitted window seats. To the right of the landing there is an AV room and a fitted bedroom with a dedicated bathroom.

The master bedroom suite comprises the remainder of the eastern side of the first floor and is a spectacular space which includes a sitting room with double French doors opening to a balcony and double doors leading through to the bedrooms area, again with French doors to the same balcony. An oak screen subdivides this room and there is a fitted dressing room, a generous bathroom with a bath and separate shower and a make-up area with a door to the master suite staircase which leads down to the snooker room and the leisure area.

To the left of the main galleried landing there are two or three further bedrooms, two of which are fitted with bedroom furniture and both have en-suite bathrooms. These lie each side of a sitting room or fifth bedroom which has a balcony and a connecting door to the fourth bedroom; perfect for a guest suite.

The remainder of the first floor provides a self-contained and well appointed guest, staff or dependent suite with a further bedroom, bathroom and a living room with a kitchen and dining area beyond which is an entrance lobby accessed by an external staircase.

The Barn is a striking building set within the gardens and a short stroll from the main house. This provides wonderful office or entertaining space with a complete kitchen and bathroom, a spiral staircase leads up to a gallery with full height central section and restricted headroom to the sides, an occasional bedroom and open mezzanine area.

The grounds have been mentioned earlier, but include separate garden areas with pathways and screens, all beautifully landscaped. There is a vegetable area, fruit trees and a lawn area adjoining the hard tennis court to the rear of the garaging and car port.
