Full description

A magnificent detached farm cottage which stands within approximately 1.58 acres, with stables for two horses, a tack room, two fence and post paddocks and a detached garage. It nestles amongst the idyllic countryside and enjoys some of the most splendid views that can be seen locally, with panoramic views of the 'Cheshire Hills' and the Staffordshire Moorlands including 'The Roaches' and 'The Peak District National Park'.

Mow Cop is a beautiful rural village which straddles the Cheshire and Staffordshire border. It sits beneath a sixty five foot rock feature called the Old Man O'Mow and the folly of a eighteenth century ruined castle, which shapes the horizon and is now under the management of the National Trust.

It is by no means isolated and provides excellent access of the North West Motorway networks with nearby junctions at Sandbach or Holmes Chapel. Trunk roads provide a link between Stoke-On-Trent and Manchester, as does the local railway station at nearby Congleton which lies on the West Coast Main Line.

This extended home has been finished with white rendered elevations and features beautifully modernised accommodation with four separate receptions areas and the addition of a large conservatory. There is also a separate utility room and adjoining downstairs shower room. The first floor landing gives access to the refitted family bathroom and four bedrooms with a well appointed refitted master ensuite shower room. The master and two of the guest bedrooms boast extensive fitted wardrobes.

This property is anticipated to be of considerable interest to equestrian enthusiasts and closer inspections are highly recommended.

Total floor area extends to approximately 1593 square foot (as recorded on the 'Energy Performance Certificate' dated 01/06/15).
