Full description

The property is located in the grounds of the Bostock Hall development, which is centred around the Grade II listed Georgian hall. The development nestles in fourteen acres of wonderful conservation parkland including manicured gardens and ornamental lake.

The Hall was once home to the France-Hayhurst family and having fallen into disrepair was converted and renovated in the late 20th Century by P J Livesey & Co to an exceptionally high standard. The original walled garden now houses a range of executive family homes, each with driveway parking and garages. Littlegrebe Cottage is particularly sought after as its private south facing rear garden backs onto the lake. For what is essentially a rural location the property also has the benefit of being within a 5-10 minute walk to the Hayhurst Arms - vast emerging as one of Cheshire's finest gastro pubs/restaurants that opened in December 2014 and has attracted a huge following since that point. 

The house itself is impeccably presented, intelligently designed and ideal for both growing families and those looking to downsize. The entrance hall is in itself a feature, having superb high ceiling and feature glass window that extends to the full height of the house.

The ground floor has a superb living room, useful study and dining room that overlooks the rear garden. The rooms are versatile and can be used for different purposes to suit individual requirements. Of particular note is the outstanding breakfast kitchen that has been fully refitted in recent times and comprises granite preparation surfaces and an excellent range of units and appliances. Completing the accommodation is an excellent conservatory that links from the kitchen and overlooks the garden. At ground floor level there is also a cloakroom and utility room.

At first floor level the accommodation continues to impress. The master bedroom is beautifully proportioned and has the benefit of a stylish en suite shower room. The second bedroom also has an en suite whilst two further bedrooms are served by a family bathroom.  

To the front of the property is a driveway which leads to the side of the house and the garage with up and over doors, power, light and eaves storage. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn and interspersed with a number of mature trees and shrubs.

Immediately to the rear of the property is a beautiful and easily maintainable fully landscaped garden, designed by Sue Davies of Outside Rooms. The courtyard garden is planted with a range of flowering and architectural shrubs and flowers providing interest in all seasons. The ambience is further enhanced by the original brick wall, decked patio, walkways and rose and wisteria archways. The garden is truly an area of tranquillity, ideal for alfresco dining and entertaining.

There is gated access through to the more informal garden laid mainly to lawn, ideal for a Summer's evening with seating areas and access down to the lake. It truly is rare to find a property with such stunning gardens and grounds, in such a convenient location.  

Bostock is a small semi rural parish situated within the heart of Cheshire's finest open countryside, yet is by no means isolated and within easy daily travelling distance of local shops at both Davenham Village, Northwich, Tarporley and Knutsford town centre. For the commuter, the North West Motorway network is also readily available providing a gateway to the North and South with Manchester International Airport. Nearby Rail Stations are available at Northwich, Plumley and Knutsford. Excellent educational facilities are available to suit children of most ages in both the State and private sector. Nearby Leisure Centres in Northwich and Knutsford cater for most sporting activities and there are numerous private sporting clubs in the surrounding area. It is also worthy of note that within five - ten minutes walk of the property a new Gastro Pub / Restaurant opened in December 2014, known as the Hayhurst Arms.
