Full description

An idyllic country cottage that boasts a lovely situation in the heart of Rushton village, but
nevertheless is cocooned within its own quite superb grounds at the end of a long driveway, with
woodland to the side which in itself is a special feature and which forms a quite delightful approach.

Considerable improvements have been undertaken to the property within the recent past - improvements that in no way detract from the fundamental nature of the cottage, and which do
in fact enhance the delightful atmosphere that abounds within. A system of oil fired central heating is installed, with radiators in the majority of rooms, although the Kitchen, and the
Conservatory, feature underfloor heating. It should also be noted that for versatility, as well as for economic reasons, domestic hot water system is provided by solar panels. In addition, there is
uPVC double glazing, with certain units having been specially commissioned to fit the beautiful stone mullioned windows in the Lounge and the Sitting Room. The Lounge is a thoroughly delightful room with its beautiful and imposing pink sandstone fire surround, so typical of this part of the world, and in this case, forming a splendid focal point. From an entertaining standpoint, many will no doubt relish the quite spectacular Conservatory/Family Room which extends to over 25' in length and which overlooks the rear garden.

Completing the ground floor is the Entrance Hall, and the Kitchen, the latter equipped with an excellent range of good quality units that include a range of integrated appliances as well as a striking bottle green enamelled Rayburn. There is an Inner Hall, off which is a Cloakroom, together with stairs to the first floor accommodation which comprises three double Bedrooms,
two of which are serviced by a "Jack & Jill" Shower Room, whilst the main Bedroom has a large en-suite Bathroom. Both have been stylishly re-fitted in recent times, with a contemporary theme.

Outside are a splendid range of outbuildings, the oldest of which is built in stone and is two storey, with the ground flooring providing a Utility/Workroom, together with an adjoining Shower Room, whilst upstairs is an Office or a Bed/Sitting Room for guests, or indeed, for a teenager that may prefer their own space. There is an enormous Garage with adjoining storage and
Workshop recess, together with a second Garage and a large Studio/Workshop.

The grounds are an absolute delight, having been painstakingly landscaped in recent years to provide formal lawns, pretty formal garden areas and flower beds, and extensive natural stone
terracing. There is a substantial turning area and hardstanding, together with the charmingly named, and protected, Greenpeace Wood, which extends to some just under 3.5 acres. It goes without saying that this provides lovely walks as well as an abundant supply of fuel! In total, the grounds extend to 4.25 acres, or thereabouts.

Rushton is a genuine community situated to the south of Macclesfield, where comprehensive facilities are available, although other towns such as Congleton and Leek are easily accessible and also provide good facilities. Part of the appeal of Macclesfield is its superb direct Inter-City rail services that operate on an extremely regular basis to both Manchester and London.

Proceed south out of Macclesfield on the A523 Leek Road, passing through the village of Bosley. On entering Rushton, pass the Rushton Inn on the left hand side, and 200 yards further on turn left, just after the small white outbuilding. Immediately cross the stone bridge, and then turn left onto the driveway to the property.
