Full description

A STUNNING PERIOD 4 BEDROOM FAMILY HOUSE NESTLED IN EXQUISITE GARDENS WITH PADDOCK.

Oak Farm is believed to date back to the 16th Century, with cream rendered elevations adorned by wisteria and climbing roses with double glazed leaded windows, all surmounted by a tiled roof. This pretty facade sets the scene for the most stunning interior, with the unusual blend of good ceiling height and beamed ceilings. Each room is dripping with features such as chamfered beams, exposed trusses, timbered walls, open fireplace with Haddonstone surround, log burning stove and wooden latch doors. The house is decorated beautifully and has four reception rooms, study and a large kitchen/breakfast room with wonderful orangery off. The first floor has a large master bedroom suite with en suite bathroom and dressing room, three further double bedrooms and a good sized family bathroom.

The gardens are a real delight and yet another feature of this amazing house. A lit timber gate opens to a gravel drive that leads to the rear of the house and to the the front of the oak framed triple garage. The majority of the gardens lie to the rear, with a stone terrace wrapping around the rear of the house and the orangery. The gardens themselves are encompassed by a mature laurel hedge with an orchard area with cherry, apple and pear trees. Besides the orchard is a large pond (stocked with carp) with a timber decked viewing area overlooking. The lawns are cleverly dissected by wonderful planting into different areas of interest. There are many areas of delight including the laburnum arch over a stone walkway leading to a seating area that overlooks the garden. A separate gate off the drive leads to a large paddock, making the house ideal for the equestrian buyer.

Oak Farm is located off a quiet rural lane near to the village of Astbury. Astbury is one of the most picturesque villages in Cheshire, on the eastern edge of the Cheshire plain, only some 3.5 miles from Congleton, 11.5 miles from Leek and 11 miles from Macclesfield. The village has a stunning green, 14th Century Grade I Listed parish church and a popular public house The Egerton Arms. Train connections to the major conurbations are available from Congleton, Macclesfield and Kidsgrove train stations, with a direct train from Macclesfield to London Euston taking 1hr 45min. The M6 (J17) is only some 6 miles distant. There are numerous local schools with Kings School in Macclesfield and Terra Nova near Holmes Chapel.
