Constructed around 1820, by the accomplished horticulturalist and landowner James Bateman, and was once the Vicarage for Biddulph Church, Elmhurst is a magical Grade II listed four bedroomed Georgian Residence, which was originally one house now converted into a West and East Wing, this being the West Wing. Situated in splendid surroundings with far reaching views over farmland, in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Elmhurst provides a rare combination of Georgian grandeur and modern comfort, a great recipe for stylish family living. Amongst its traditional features are beautiful stone mullioned windows, high ceilings and cavernous rooms, fireplaces and large internal doors, which close with a satisfying clunk. It is also conveniently situated for the local towns of Biddulph and Congleton, which, in particular, has nationwide rail links and frequent expresses to London.
There are spacious reception areas, including a spectacular Dining Hall measuring 20ft x 19ft, as well as a lovely Drawing Room with large bay windows overlooking farmland to the front and grounds to the sides. The Large Dining Kitchen is the warm heart of the house and offers views over the private rear terrace. Also on the ground floor, is a small library and large cloakroom, and from the rear reception porch, is an office and utility room.
The first floor is reached via a splendid shallow rise staircase. The huge master bedroom enjoys uninterrupted farmland views, and has a hidden door leading to the modern en-suite shower room. The second bedroom again is an excellent size, and there are also two further bedrooms. Completing this level is the sumptuous family bathroom, with a modern take on the original roll top bath, double sized shower cubicle with thermostatically controlled shower and winged his and hers wash hand basins.
As befits a property of distinction, there are lovely formal gardens all of which total approximately one acre, incorporating specimen trees, with established rhododendrons a particular feature, extensive lawns, discreet terrace excellent for alfresco entertaining, ample driveway for numerous vehicles, and DOUBLE GARAGE with attached store.
