White Barn Farm lies on the southerly slopes of The Edge and set off a quiet country lane, it is difficult to believe you are less the three miles from two of Cheshire's most desirable and affluent villages. There are glorious views over undulating countryside and yet the property is in a private setting hidden from view along a meandering driveway and set centrally within 10 acres of gardens and grazing land. The villages of Prestbury and Alderley Edge both have lovely restaurants, specialist
shops and supermarkets with Waitrose in Alderley along with easy access to primary schools in both villages, Nether Alderley and Mottram St Andrew. The private sector is well catered for in Alderley and Macclesfield with The Kings School Macclesfield, Beech Hall, Terra Nova, The Ryleys and Alderley Edge School for Girls. The train service from both Wilmslow and Macclesfield places London less then 2 hrs away and from Alderley Edge there is a 30 minute journey to Manchester. There are cricket, tennis and squash clubs in both villages, many local golf courses, livery yards and Macclesfield & Wilmslow Rugby Clubs. An ideal location, rural yet far from isolated.

A spacious and modern country house built in 1985 and not extended since; White Barn Farm offers plenty of scope to make more of its wonderful setting. Properties like this are rare, especially set within a private location and with such generous grounds. Stabling and paddocks will suit those who enjoy equestrian pursuits and there is plenty of good, safe hacking in the immediate lanes and extensive bridleways. The property was designed to make the most of the wonderful views and the west wing, with its second staircase, offers independent accommodation if required, although is equally well suited to losing a smaller bedroom and creating a very generous guest suite.

The entrance porch opens into a large entrance hall with a galleried landing. A cloakroom with w.c lies off to the right and a superb dual aspect lounge with a bay window and a real fire lies beyond. Off this is a study area which could be separated if required.

The dining room lies opposite the entrance and with double doors from the hall, double doors to the lounge and a pair of French doors to the gardens creates great entertaining space. The farmhouse kitchen has bespoke pine cupboards and a double Aga as well as a separate oven and has a door off to the family room with a bay window and a log burning stove in a corner fireplace. We imagine this room could be readily combined into a large living kitchen. A door leads off the kitchen to the cleverly conceived side hall/boot room with front and rear outside doors, a second cloakroom with W.C. and an office. A connecting door leads through to the double garage and a second staircase leads up to the guest suite. The main landing off the galleried
landing leads through to the master bedroom with its dressing room and en-suite bathroom with a separate shower. There are three further principal double bedrooms off the landing, a family bathroom with a separate shower and access through to the large guest bedroom with an adjoining smaller 6th bedroom which could easily be adapted to create either an en-suite bathroom or a kitchen should this room we required as an independent suite, a nanny suite or alternatives.

The gardens and a lawn lie to the immediate area around the property with a sweeping driveway and plenty of parking/turning area. The land extends to all sides of the house and a second driveway leads down to the stables with three stables and a tack room. A large two bay store stands alongside the main entrance drive and offers potential for restoration or replacement.
