Viewing Essential to Appreciate the Location. An attractive, interesting period house in a stunning location with privacy

Location 
Peace, tranquillity and seclusion, it doesn't get much better than this. Hardiwick Farm stands in an enviable, rural location being set well back from this little used No Through road with the property being particularly well screened on two sides by established trees with splendid open aspects to the other two elevations. Caverswall Common is a desirable setting just north of the historic village of Caverswall, itself lying between Cheadle and Uttoxeter. The location alone is a significant attraction to this property.

Directions 
From the A50 heading westbound from Uttoxeter, continue towards Stoke on Trent at the roundabout at Blythe Bridge. After this roundabout, take the second slip road (signposted Caverswall). Proceed around the roundabout taking the third exit to Caverswall and at the T junction at the end of the road, turn right into the village. At the centre of the village (village square), take the second turning onto The Hollow. At the brow of the hill at the T Junction, turn left onto Handley Banks and follow the road for approximately 0.8 of a mile where the entrance to the farmhouse is on your right, after the second left hand turn.
