Full description

Within an industry that is renowned for cliches and over-used jargon, the importance of the location of a property is widely regarded as being of paramount importance. That enjoyed by this property really is quite extraordinary and embraces much of what many would regard as being the ideal - genuine peace and tranquillity, views over adjoining lush meadows, the interest and the changing "mood" of the hills, and the abundant wildlife - whether it be the romping lambs in the adjoining field, or even the magnificent and renowned, and still elusive, Bosley Herd (deer).
And all this within comfortable travelling distance of Macclesfield.

What must be stressed however, is that the property itself similarly, has much to commend it in respect of the extent of family accommodation it provides, together with the element of unrealised potential, and given its wonderfully distinguished Georgian style symmetrical facade, a highly distinctive first impression. The property was actually built in relatively modern times and with subsequent extensions now provides a splendid family house that has potential for the new owners to incorporate their own tastes and requirements. Oil fired central heating is installed, as indeed, is partial sealed unit double glazing to timber frames, with the existing lay-out configured to provide two outstanding Reception Rooms on the ground floor, along with a large square Kitchen, a good sized Rear Hall, and a spacious Shower Room with separate W.C. On the first floor are up to five Bedrooms, although one is currently utilised as a Television Room. All the Bedrooms are well proportioned, and three feature excellent wardrobe facilities. There is a main family Bathroom, whilst adjoining the main Bedroom is a substantial en-suite
Bathroom/Dressing Room.

Outside, a gravelled hardstanding provides access to a brick built double Garage that provides an inspection pit together with, we are told, sufficient foundations to effect a further first
floor extension, should the new owner wish, although needless to say, this would be subject to Local Authority consent. The garden is an absolute picture and apart from the previously
mentioned tranquil atmosphere include a wide stone flagged terrace with retaining walls featuring wrought iron relief, lawns, borders stocked with a variety of specimen plants, shrubs and
trees, including a substantial willow tree and productive apple and damson trees. To the side of the property, a vegetable garden.

Bosley village is one of the area's prime rural communities and is a delightful part of the world and one which has two public houses, a pretty church, and a charming and thankfully, still
thriving primary school. More comprehensive facilities are available in Macclesfield just a short distance to the north, and in Congleton, just to the west. Macclesfield's railway station
provides a wide range of Inter-City services.

From Macclesfield town centre proceed south on the A523 and on leaving town, proceed for approximately 3 miles until reaching the junction with the A54 Congleton to Buxton Road, at
the Bosley crossroads. Turn left, signposted for Buxton, and after approximately 0.5 mile, where the road bends to the right, take the left hand turn into Brooks Lane. The property is 1/3 mile along on the right hand side.
