Wildersmoor House is a delightful, substantial period property set in glorious grounds and located in a sought after location on Higher Lane. Parts of the original building date to the Georgian period with additions made in the Edwardian era, in its latter years the structure has been thoughtfully divided into two private dwellings. The grounds are a particularly fine feature and offer an idyllic setting for this period gem.

Entered via double wooden security gates the property retains a wealth of original features throughout and offers beautifully presented, ready to move into accommodation and briefly comprises Entrance porch leading to welcoming reception hallway, downstairs WC, lounge, formal dining room, bespoke fitted kitchen by Duval of Hazel Grove which opens onto the family room, utility room, downstairs wet room and conservatory. There are seven good sized bedrooms, one with en suite shower room and two additional family bathrooms. In addition there is a home office, which is accessed via its own staircase from the family room. A particularly fine feature of the property are the gardens which are a mixture of formal lawn, several patio areas, deep well stocked borders, substantial vegetable plot in a circular segmented design, large pond and a wooded copse with mature trees and natural vegetation, making this area a perfect wildlife sanctuary.

Approached via the electric gates the gravel driveway provides parking for a minimum of 6 vehicles to the right and a further stretch of driveway leads to the large double garage for additional parking. The gravel path meanders around the formal lawn area and the large open pond which has a gentle waterfall - there is also a rowing boat and oars which are included in the sale. The pathway continues to the large wooden storage shed, wood store and then blends into a walkway into the woods. There is extensive outside lighting throughout the garden area. The wooded copse is a natural wildlife habitat with large mature trees and a carpet of wild flowers at certain times throughout the year. The more formal garden contains the circular and segmented vegetable patch which is well stocked and currently contains, beans, rhubarb, beetroot and pumpkins to name a few - wild strawberry bushes are scattered around the perimeter. There are three separate patios constructed in mainly Indian stone and which provide sheltered areas for al-fresco dining. The largest area is reached via deep stone steps and sits comfortably swathed in flowering jasmine and climbing roses with a delightful view of the grounds
