Tenure: Freehold

Beautifully located and recently upgraded 5 bedroom 1920's house in a secluded setting off a private lane close to the village. Over recent years this fine family house has undergone a fantastic transformation creating contemporary living areas in line with today's needs and yet retains the elegance and design features of the Arts & Crafts movement. It stands within secure, manageable gardens and the gated driveway leads around the house to a private parking area and the large detached double garage.


Pond House lies in a secluded setting off a private road to the West of the pretty village centre yet away from the main road. Set behind gardens and a gated driveway the location is convenient for access to Alderley Edge, Wilmslow, Cheadle John Lewis and Manchester International Airport. The village of Prestbury is renowned throughout the North West as one of Cheshire's prettiest villages with its Georgian village houses and specialist shops, The Admiral Rodney and The Legh Arms public houses and a good choice of restaurants. The village primary school and Mottram St Andrew village school are both highly regarded and the property lies within the catchment area of excellent Fallibroome High School. For those seeking the private sector there is Kings School Macclesfield at senior and junior level, with junior schools including Alderley Edge School for Girls, The Ryleys, Beech Hall and Terra Nova. The village has a thriving tennis and squash club, a cricket club and there are numerous golf courses all within a few minutes drive.


Pond House dates from 1921 and has always been regarded as one of the village's premier houses. Over recent years this fine family house has undergone a fantastic transformation creating contemporary living areas in line with today's needs and yet retains the elegance and design features of the Arts & Crafts movement. It stands within secure, manageable gardens and the gated driveway leads around the house to a private parking area and the large detached double garage.
The programme of recent works which have made dramatic improvements are the creation of a large kitchen by bespoke craftsman Martin Moore with an informal dining room, a family room off and the addition of a Vale Conservatory which opens directly off the kitchen creating a fabulous everyday living area. The exterior has been restored and enhanced with a green oak porch and replacement Critall windows.
The period features include in addition a herringbone patterned oak wood block floor to the hall, period doors and a panelled drawing room with a bay window to the rear.
The creation of a studio room to the side offers potential to create a dependent suite and there are few properties with as much internal storage space as Pond House.
With two separate staircases to the first floor the delightfully rambling bedroom layout lends itself to creating a 'nanny' room or a very indulgent master bedroom suite with a large dressing room as an alternative to retaining the fifth bedroom. The gabled exterior has a unique charm and character and being able to 'pop' into the village is a huge advantage for family homes of this nature.
The charming green oak and tiled porch has a wide oak front door which opens to the welcoming hall with its oak woodblock floor and large cloaks cupboard. An inner hall area leads to study and a cloakroom with a w.c. and cloaks cupboard. The drawing room has many period features including an oak woodblock floor, plaque rails and panelling, library shelving and a bay to the rear. An antique door connects to the sitting room. The heart of this house is undoubtedly the fantastic Martin Moore living kitchen with its granite topped island and surfaces, a double Aga and Quooker boiling water tap to the appliance garage and American style fridge and freezer. There are views over the gardens to the front and the Vale conservatory opens off to the rear creating a lovely day room. Double doors also lead into the sitting room which has a Minster style stone fireplace, Amtico flooring and a bay to the rear. There is also a deep understairs cupboard and an access door to the drawing room.
A side hall beyond the kitchen provides access to the triple aspect studio with double French doors. This is a really good retreat, away from the rest of the house and potentially a self contained suite. The linking area has a newly appointed shower room with a w.c. and is the working section of the house with tiled floors and a door to the rear gardens, a larder, a utility kitchen with an induction hob and electric oven, and a freezer area.
A second hall area has a door to the front and a boiler room with a very useful low level Belfast sink for boot or dog washing. There are two staircases to the first floor, the principal staircase leads from the hall to a landing and with access to the four principal bedrooms. These include a second bedroom with a double aspect and a walk in closet, a third bedroom with a bay to the rear and a walk in closet, a fourth bedroom with a side window and wardrobe cupboard and the family bathroom. This has been superbly re-appointed with a double ended bath, a walk in shower with drench head and a wash hand basin. There is a separate w.c.
The master bedroom is well appointed with a comprehensive range of fitted wardrobe furniture and a large en-suite shower room recently refurbished. A door leads off to the fifth bedroom, also accessed by a separate staircase from the kitchen, and this could provide either nanny accommodation or would suit conversion to a dressing room suite off the master bedroom.
The large detached double garage lies to the front of the house and is approached by the gated driveway which sweeps around the house to the parking/turning area. The gardens are mainly lawned and have been designed with easy maintenance in mind. There are specimen trees, flagged terraces to both the front and to the reare with access directly from the conservatory. Perfect for summer barbeques.

Square Footage: 4,222 sq ft


From Prestbury village centre proceed up Castle Hill in the direction of Wilmslow and as you turn the right hand corner at the top of the hill look out for a small driveway on the left hand side with 'Pond House' on a sign. Take this driveway and Pond House is the first gated entrance on the right hand side.
