Full description

Of similar importance with any property is, needless to say, its location, and that enjoyed by Ivy Cottage really is superb, being on the lower slopes of Bosley Cloud and with marvellous views all round, highlighted, arguably, by the wonderful panorama over the Cheshire Plain - a feature rendered possible by its slightly elevated setting. Despite its outstanding position, the property is far from isolated, being only a few minutes drive from the centre of Congleton, and slightly further afield, Macclesfield and Leek.

There is oak framed sealed unit double glazing together with oil fired central heating which is complemented by underfloor heating in a number of rooms, whilst other notable features of the accommodation include: oak window sills, slate flooring, window shutters, beautiful strip timber flooring and mood lighting. There are integrated ceiling speakers to a number of rooms and to the Sun Loggia, and a number of rooms wired for Sky T.V. through a central control console, although these items may require attention as they have not been in use for some time. The practical lay-out incorporates a splendid Living Room with fireplace and exposed stonework, leading from which is the main central Hallway, which has stairs both up and down, and which also affords access to a delightful Garden Room. There is a superb formal Lounge with cast iron log burner, as well as outstanding "L" shaped "Living Space" which incorporates a good sized Kitchen with AGA range cooker and open way access to the Living Room, and an adjoining Dining Room with its pitched ceiling and folding doors opening out onto the Sun Loggia, and of course, the garden beyond.

Completing the ground floor is a useful downstairs Cloakroom, and a Utility Room, whilst upstairs, access is via a staircase that divides and leads to two Landings. Off one is the second Bedroom, and the Master Suite - a superb feature in its own right given its Dressing Room, en-suite Shower Room, and lovely Bedroom that is one of a number of rooms that derives the maximum impact of the views. Leading from the second Landing are two further double Bedrooms, and the impressive split-level contemporary Bathroom.

Outside, there are two hardstandings, each with their own lane access and which provide off-road parking, but adjoining one is a substantial stone built four car Garage. The grounds form a wonderful feature to the property during summer months, extend to approximately 1 acre and provide extensive lawned areas, a small area of woodland, cleverly conceived pathways, flower beds and ornamental ponds, and these have been enhanced by the clever incorporation of mood lighting.

As mentioned previously, the centre of Congleton is close by and provides a good range of facilities within its friendly community, with more extensive facilities, and indeed, direct Inter-City rail services into Manchester and London on an almost hourly basis on weekdays, are available a few minutes drive in the other direction, in Macclesfield. The market town of Leek is a charming farming community, and provides a further contrasting diversion!
