There are precious few folk who would disagree with the theory that the location of a property is of paramount importance and on that basis, this property really should prove to be an enticing proposition for those currently looking in this price bracket. There are lovely views all around, the
property, is all but surrounded by its own land, and importantly, it has the most delightful of
approaches along its own illuminated driveway.

Various improvements and extensions having been undertaken in recent years, but it is a property that has tremendous potential, as well as versatility given the quite superb self-contained annexe that could relatively simply be incorporated into the main body of the house, if preferred. At present, the configuration incorporates an imposing Reception Hall complemented by three Reception Rooms, together with a wonderful "L" shaped "Living space" which features a high pitched and beamed ceiling, together with an adjoining Kitchen area that has granite worktops. There is a separate Utility Room and off the Hall, a downstairs Cloakroom, but also at this level is the delightful main Bedroom which is well proportioned and which has both a walk-in wardrobe, and its own en-suite Bathroom.

On the first floor, there are three Bedrooms and a second Bathroom, notwithstanding the fact that the majority may choose to utilise the fourth Bedroom as a Study.The Annexe provides a quite magnificent Living Room that extends to 30' in length and which includes a distinct Dining Area, whilst the Kitchen is well equipped with a range of integrated appliances. On the first floor, is a Landing, double Bedroom with excellent wardrobe facilities, spacious Bathroom, and Boxroom.

The grounds extend to 3.14 acres, or thereabouts, and provide thoroughly delightful formal gardens with two ponds, terraces, lawns, etc., but in addition to that, there is a substantial farmyard with three buildings around it and which provide Loose Boxes and a Garage block with inspection pit, and a Hay Barn. The grazing is basically formed by three paddocks. Notwithstanding its quite superb rural setting and genuine tranquility, there are good facilities in the area and the friendly market town of Leek is a short drive away to the east.

Proceed south out of Macclesfield on the A523 towards Leek. At the far end of the village in Rushton, keep left after the Royal Oak pub, up the hill on the Leek Old Road. Rejoin the A523 and then take the second right onto the B5331 to Rudyard. Turn left at the roundabout in the centre of Rudyard by the Poachers Arms into Dunwood Lane. Turn second left after approximately 0.5miles, signposted Longsdon. Continue to the "T" junction and turn left into School Lane and the property will be found on the left hand side.
