Situation

Rhodewood House stands privately within established grounds of about 2.5 acres only half mile from the centre of this historic market town.

The town of Macclesfield, once the world's largest producer of finished silk, is a thriving centre for the surrounding rural communities and holds weekly markets as well as being home to most of the large supermarkets and national chain stores. Specialist shops abound and a covered market opens six days a week.

The town lies in the foothills of the Pennines and is on the main west coast line from Manchester to London. Euston can be reached in about1 hour 48 mins and Manchester in 24 minutes, with the station only 1 mile away.

The Peak National Park is on the doorstep and for those with a love of the outdoors there are wonderful walks in the surrounding hills and valleys.

The town is well served by schools in the state and private sector. Fallibroome Academy is within walking distance as is Kings School Macclesfield. Beech Hall preparatory school is also close by. Other popular schools locally are Alderley Edge School for Girls, The Ryleys, Terra Nova and Pownall Hall School in Wilmslow.

Leisure facilities are excellent throughout the area, with many golf courses, livery, tennis, cricket, football and rugby clubs. Macclesfield Leisure centre is only 1 mile away and has an athletics track.

Many of the restaurants and bars of Macclesfield are within walking distance and the village of Prestbury is two miles away and Alderley Edge five miles, both of which have many restaurants, bars and bistros.

Rhodewood House is very well located to take advantage of the town's many and varied amenities.

Description

One of the finest houses in the town and extending to nearly 8000 sq ft, Rhodewood House is a magnificent property within exceptional grounds.
The grandeur of the Victorian period combines superbly with contemporary needs including a full leisure suite and swimming pool to the lower ground floor with patio doors opening to the rear gardens.

From the impressive drawing room with its dual aspect and period fireplace, the beautifully panelled dining room and the comfortable morning room there is plenty of room for formal and informal entertaining whilst this is a splendid family home as well.

The accommodation is remarkably flexible, with an adjoining apartment which could be let separately or provide for an extended family and which could be readily utilised within the main accommodation as needs dictate.

There is a carriage driveway leading off Prestbury Road with stone gate posts and this leads past the front of the house to a flagged courtyard parking area with a separate gated access off the road.

The gardens are profusely stocked with specimen trees and shrubs, viewed from the south facing rear terrace. A fountain lies to the side and Whitfield Brook meanders through the gardens.

Accommodation

The recessed porch leads through to the entrance hall off which are the principal reception rooms with lovely panelled doors. The morning room lies to the left and has a dual aspect with a side bay and a living flame gas fire set in a period mahogany fireplace. The drawing room also features a double aspect, an impressive marble fireplace with a real fire and a side bay window. A door leads through to the garden room to the rear with practical tiled floors and French doors opening to the raised rear terrace. The formal dining room is spectacular with wonderful oak panelling, integrated library shelving, cupboards and a fireplace.

The breakfast kitchen is appointed with granite surfaces, a gas Aga, oven, hob & microwave, a Quooker, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. An island unit houses the hob and there is plenty of space for informal dining. A rear hall leads through to a boot room/utility room and an outside door opens to the courtyard parking area. An inner hall at the rear has the second staircase to the first floor and a door through to the apartment accommodation. This arrangement allows the first floor to be used either as a supplementary floor for the apartment, with a third bedroom, or as the fifth bedroom of the main house.

The remaining apartment accommodation includes the sitting room with a window to the rear, a kitchen with a conservatory breakfast room, a private entrance to a hall and two bedrooms, both with their own well appointed bathrooms.

On the first floor there is a large lantern lit landing providing access to the four large principal bedrooms, all of which are fitted and three have recently replaced en suites. The master bedroom has a very spacious en suite bathroom with a bath and separate shower, accessed additionally from the landing. The fifth bedroom has an adjoining bathroom and a separate w.c.

The lower ground floor includes a wine cellar, a workshop and a home office, both of which would convert to a cinema room.
