Full description

Select are proud to offer for sale this beautiful detached grade two listed Georgian residence, priced reallistically in the current market. Asking price includes a separate large grade two listed barn and attached cow shed and is located in the most popular and sought after village of Shardlow. The property is believed to date back to the 1700's and local history suggests it was once the West wing of Shardlow School. The property offers a wealth of period features including beams to the sitting room which were reportedly reclaimed from canal boats and barges that sailed the nearby canal when Shardlow was a trade hub. The sitting room also includes a beautiful fire surround constructed from local stone taken from the nearby farm and a solid aged Oak mantle again taken from an Oak tree on the farm estate. The accommodation in brief comprises: Entrance hall, spacious sitting room with feature stone fire surround, original beams to the ceiling and areas of original lime and wattle ceiling plaster, separate dining room with original beams and feature recess that once held the properties main cooking stove. There is a spacious breakfast kitchen, generous ground floor cloakroom, converted double garage offering a large study/home office, generous master bedroom to the first floor along with a large fitted four piece bathroom, two further second floor double bedrooms and an additional fully fitted shower room. The main residence offers stunning views over nearby fields and farm land.

The large grade two Listed barn and cow shed is close in date to the original building and measures some 70 feet in length, 17 feet in width and has a beautiful high vaulted ceiling. The remnants of the cow shed measures approximately 55 feet by 16 feet with brick mangers, roof line and back wall, which when reinstated would offer a combined footprint of approximately 2000 square feet. This barn and cow shed previously had planning permission granted for residential use and the potential to create either one very large or two generous separate residential properties is obvious.

The property, barn and cow shed are set back from the road behind walled gardens and stand in generous grounds with a private driveway to the front providing ample off road parking for several vehicles and giving access to the currently converted double garage. This driveway entrance to number 83 would readily provide access to all properties. There is a grade two listed wall separating the main driveway from the barn which is surrounded by lawned garden and has frontage to the road. To the rear of the property is a cottage garden with patio, neat flower beds and brick built store sheds. The vendor is open to negotiating the inclusion of further land to the side and rear of the property to suit the individual purchaser.
