Full description

Bearing a date stone of 1842, Chantry Cottage is a pretty double fronted detached property which has been subsequently extended, remodelled and refurbished to an extremely high standard and with great flair, style and imagination to blend the old and new. Approached through electrically operated timber gates, a sweeping driveway passes a self-contained oak framed annexe and to a courtyard where there is a large double car barn, two stables, workshop and loft room over. Enclosed paddocks lie to the rear and side of the property with formal gardens enjoying a particularly open and westerly aspect over rolling Cheshire Countryside. The property is very much geared towards an active family wishing for the outdoor life and anyone with equine interests will be particularly well catered for. In addition, for those wishing to work from home or have an extended family there is a self-contained annexe presently used as a gym with kitchen and large wet room area will be just ideal.
Smallwood is a beautiful rural Cheshire hamlet surrounded by open countryside, however, by no means isolated and within easy commuting distance of the North West motorway network, in particular the M6 at Junction 17 Sandbach. Nearby rail station at Holmes Chapel provides a regular commuter service from Manchester to Crewe and Manchester International Airport is also close by. Holmes Chapel, Knutsford, Congleton and Sandbach provide a good range of day to day shopping facilities, with the larger towns of Macclesfield, Northwich and Wilmslow providing a more extensive range of larger retail outlets. Excellent educational facilities are catered for in both the state and private sectors. There are many leisure facilities on hand, particularly local golf courses and for the equestrian, Somerford Park Farm at Brereton Heath provides an indoor and outdoor riding school, cross country courses and farm rides. Smallwood Livery and cross country is next door and Smallwood also has its own "old fashioned drinking pub", The Blue Bell Inn.
From Knutsford town centre travel south along the A50 in the direction of Holmes Chapel. Proceed through Holmes Chapel village and continue south along the A50 through Brereton and then through the traffic lights at Arclid crossing the A534. After passing the 'Legs of Man' public house on your left, turn immediately left onto Back Lane which becomes Moss Mere and after about a mile, Chantry Cottage will be seen on your right. In all about 13 miles.
