Full description

Dating from the 1700's, Dicklow Cob Farm is a most attractive detached property, traditionally constructed of Cheshire brick elevations and surmounted by a slate roof. Whilst located in beautiful Cheshire countryside, it is conveniently situated for nearby town centres and excellent local schools.

Adjoining the green and close to the village pubs and restaurants, the setting is quite idyllic and approached over a long gated driveway. Landscaped formal gardens, cottage gardens and an extensive kitchen garden lie to three sides of the property and adjoin and overlook its surrounding paddock land, which in all extends to approximately 8.5 acres. The property will be particularly attractive to a purchaser looking for equestrian facilities as there are a substantial range of Heritage style stables for four horses, along with a tack/feed store and an open plan double car port. There are automated water troughs in the two fields and an all weather lit menage.

The house itself has been superbly renovated and provides excellent accommodation for a family. Whilst detailed overleaf, we draw your particular attention to the stunning living dining kitchen, fitted with a bespoke range of hand painted cabinets and granite work surfaces. There is, in addition, a matching island and a cream Aga. From this room, the garden room provides uninterrupted views over formal gardens and land in a southerly direction.
Although Dicklow Cob Farm is in wonderfully tranquil surroundings in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, it is also conveniently placed for access to Knutsford, Alderley Edge and Wilmslow which provide a comprehensive range of shops, varied social and recreational amenities and good schools for children of all ages. For the commuter, Manchester International Airport and its connection with the North West motorway network are approximately twenty minutes away by car and the railway station in Wilmslow provides fast and frequent Intercity and commuter links with Manchester, London and the surrounding business centres.

From Knutsford town centre, travel in a southerly direction along the A537, Chelford Road, in the direction of Chelford. Upon reaching the village centre and roundabout, take the third exit onto the A535 signed Holmes Chapel and the M6 motorway. Continue for approximately 3 miles, bearing left onto Longshoot Road, just prior to reaching Jodrell bank on your right. Join the B5392 and proceed into the village centre, bearing right onto Trap Street. Dicklow Cob Farm will then been seen adjacent to the village green.
Please note that we have not checked any of the appliances or the central heating system included in the sale (if any). All prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves on this point prior to entering into a contract.
