Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A five bed house on Merrivale Road is as rare as Rocking Horse teeth. A family home in an area where the birds sing their welcome to you.

A house full of surprises and distinctive features, the first floor extension provides a huge space for a Master Bedroom where with a little imagination the further development could add an ensuite bathroom and a dressing room


If it's storage you want, how much storage do you need? This house has two lofts to accommodate your most demanding requirements.

With interconnecting doors between the lounge and the dining room, space for entertaining is huge and, it has been said, 'seating 17 people for Christmas dinner' has been achieved, without opening the doors onto the patio.

Doubling up on dining space there is an area of the kitchen allocated for the less formal dining where conversations with the Chef can add spice to any meal.

A secluded, fully fenced back garden makes the perfect place for young children to play in complete safety and allows the grown ups the peace of mind to pursue their leisure with the minimum of distraction.

Working from home or daily commuting you could not live in a better spot, the M6 Motorway for roads North and South and Crewe Railway Station with London in less than an hour when HS2 arrives and a broadband speed similar to many offices for those whose careers enable flexibility on home working.

An important consideration for any growing family is education for the children and this is fully addressed with the fine OFSTED rated schools in the area, from pre school all the way to degree level, making this the ideal family home in which to grow and develop the skills required for a happy future.


Active family members are spoiled for choice with swimming pools and gymnasia in both Nantwich and Crewe and, for the spectators, each town has a professional football team.
There is an abundance of sports clubs to join from golf/squash to football and rugby at whatever level you want to play.


From this house the Cheshire countryside beckons you to interesting drives and walks in places of natural beauty and historic culture all the year round for your leisure pleasure.

The cultural heritage of Crewe and Nantwich with their connections pre and post the industrial revolution, ensure you will spend happy hours understanding how important the area has been in the life of the country.
In the Domesday Book, Nantwich is recorded as having eight salt houses. It had a castle and was the capital of a barony of the Earls of Chester, and of one of the seven hundreds of medieval baronies of the UK

Although the name Creu first appears in the Domesday Book, the modern urban settlement of Crewe was not formally planned out until 1843 by Joseph Locke to consolidate the "railway colony" that had grown up since around 1840-41 in the area near to the railway junction station opened in 1837, even though it was called Crewe by many, from the start. Crewe was thus named after the railway station, rather than the other way round.
