Full description

For anybody wanting to live amidst the splendid scenery and wide open spaces of the Peak District National Park, this delightful detached stone house may well be of interest. Wildboarclough is one of the areas most colourfully named localities and owing to its natural beauty and local accessibility, is held in the highest esteem.

The house is located at the end of a long driveway and occupies a delightful elevated position, giving sweeping easterly views across open farmland and beyond, across the valley.

The house has been enhanced and modernised over the years but thankfully retains a lovely atmosphere that one would hope to expect of a property of this nature. The use of internal oak doors with thumb latches and exposed ceiling timbers certainly add to the overall appeal.

A LPG fired central heating system and sealed unit timber double glazing are installed to a practical and characterful layout of accommodation that provides a useful enclosed porch/boot room, entrance hall, pleasant lounge with excellent multi-fuel burning stove, sitting room which is currently utilised as an office, a spacious kitchen that is fitted with an extensive range of oak fronted units and corian worktops, and completing the ground floor accommodation is a spacious bathroom that features a modern white suite, including a roll-top bath and large shower cubicle.

On the first floor a landing, which incorporates an excellent range of built-in wardrobes as well as large walk-in airing cupboard, affords access to a washroom/WC and three splendid bedrooms, all featuring exposed timbers and all benefitting from those wonderful views to the front.

The house is surrounded by pleasant cottage gardens, with those to the rear, across the driveway, currently being utilised as a vegetable garden with greenhouse and substantial timber workshop/summerhouse. Adjoining the house is a very useful utility/boiler room that incorporates a WC as well as the water treatment plant.

Wildboarclough is renown for its natural beauty and the approach along the valley when the rhododendrons are in full bloom is wonderful. The village itself is conveniently located for easy access to Macclesfield, Buxton and Leek. Macclesfield has comprehensive facilities for shoppers, scholars and the sport and leisure orientated, whilst commuters have a wide range of road and rail options, with the latter including almost hourly Inter-City trains to both Manchester and London. The property is a 15 minute drive from Macclesfield railway station, and Manchester International Airport is a approximately 40 minutes drive away.

From Macclesfield, Waters Green, proceed under the railway bridge and through the traffic lights, crossing the Silk Road (A523) onto Buxton Road. At the top of Buxton Road, the road swings to the left - take the right hand turn onto Buxton Old Road and continue up the hill passing Tegg's Nose Country Park on the right. At the junction, turn right onto the A537 and then take the first right hand turn onto Ankers Lane. Continue down the road and just before the Stanley Arms Public House there is a right hand turn, signposted Forest Chapel and Wildboarclough. After travelling through the valley for 1.7 miles the driveway to Higher Barn will be found on the right hand side, opposite the Clough House Peak District car park. Travel across the cattle grid and up the driveway passing Lower Barn on the left hand side. The driveway turns sharply off to the right and the property will be found a few hundred yards further on.
