Full description

NO CHAIN

Royal Oak Cottage is a delightful and charming Grade II listed period cottage dating back to the late 18th Century, situated in the heart of the most attractive Astbury village, famous for the Church of Saint Mary, which is a large battlement church built between the 13th and 15th Centuries, with the unusual combination of one spire and two towers. Interestingly, Josiah Wedgwood married his cousin Sarah, daughter of Richard Wedgwood, at the church on the 25th January 1764. Within the village is the highly commended Astbury St Mary's Church of England Primary School, with Astbury Golf Club close by and the lovely rural public house "The Egerton Arms" serving its local folk. The town centre is a short drive away and access onto the A34 is immediate therefore travelling North or South to Staffordshire or Manchester is ideal.Royal Oak Cottage has most attractive elevations, retaining much of its original charm and character, and whilst well-presented throughout, nevertheless provides the new owners with a renovation opportunity to restore this home to its former glory. In addition there is a large detached double garage with 1st floor accommodation and gloriously mature grounds with extensive lawns.    

On entering, the main entrance delivers you to the dining hall with oak beamed ceiling and fireplace. From the dining hall is the inner hall with stairs off, garden room, and cloakroom from which steps lead down to the vaulted cellar.  The spacious sitting room again features beamed ceilings and fireplace, and completing the ground floor is the kitchen with rear porch/utility off.  To the first floor the wide landing with walk in store areas leads to the three double bedrooms, and large family bathroom with separate shower. Outside, and as mentioned above, are the glorious private and formal gardens, which will only truly be appreciated with the undertaking of a viewing, plus there is a large detached double garage and extensive sweeping driveway.
