Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This property is an outstanding example of Victorian style. The property retains all the elegance and grandeur of the Victorian era when it was the residence of the head gardener to nearby Biddulph Grange. The versatile five bedroomed accommodation adequately meets the needs of the modern family however, and yet thankfully, still retains the distinguished opulence of a bygone age. Original features include beautiful Minton floors (currently carpeted), antique pine high moulded skirting boards, panelled doors with moulded architraves, superb stained and leaded glass work, original fireplaces, and antique cast iron radiators heated from modern gas boiler.

There is an imposing Reception Hall with a splendid mahogany staircase and Minton tiled floor, on either side of which are the two main Reception rooms both of which feature deep bay windows overlooking the garden. These comprise a formal Drawing Room and a Sitting /Family Room whilst an Inner Hallway leads to the Cloakroom with its wonderful stained and leaded glass door and side panelling whilst the Rear Hall leads to a large Study as well and to the superb Kitchen with its stylish cream coloured units with integrated appliances. There is a useful Butler's Pantry (now used as a storeroom) with the original servant call bells whilst completing the ground floor is a spacious rear Vestibule which accesses both the Garage and a good sized Laundry Room. At first floor level are five Bedrooms, all of a good size.

The main Bedroom now has the facility not considered essential in Victorian times in the form of an en-suite Shower room whilst the stylish family Bathroom which has a large separate walk-in shower cubicle, is accessed from the rear Landing.

Outside, a double width driveway leads to an attached brick built double Garage which in turn, provides access via a shallow rise staircase to excellent Basement. The main garden area, to the front of the property, enjoys a high level of seclusion and privacy and is very much on a style sympathetic to the period of the house - there is an original York stoned paved area, extensive well stocked borders and a varied selection of mature specimen trees and shrubs
The property is situated to the north of Biddulph centre where good shopping facilities are available including a Sainsbury's superstore with access to other centres and wider facilities
excellent by road, the area generally being regarded as one of convenience given the proximity of the motorway network, and the direct rail services that operate to Manchester and London as
well as to other parts of the country.

From Macclesfield proceed south on the A536 to Congleton and on entering the town, turn left following signs for the town centre, and the A527 to Biddulph. Continue through Congleton
following the signs for Biddulph and after approximately 4 miles, immediately after passing St Lawrence's Church on the left, turn right into Marsh Green Road and then right again into Marsh
Green Close. The property is situated at the end of the close and approached from the rear.
