Full description

There have been an abundance of interior design trends in recent times, with one of the most popular being the one whereby traditional rustic is juxtaposed with the modern, and in our opinion, Brookside is a property that illustrates that tremendous ideal to perfection. Its delightful local pink sandstone elevations contrast dramatically with the expansive improvements undertaken by our clients in recent times, and the end result is a property of extraordinary merit. In addition, it should be borne in mind that as dramatic as the visual impact is, top quality materials have also been utilised.

It could be argued that Heaton is one of the least known of the many villages in the Macclesfield area, which is surprising given that it is a thoroughly delightful hamlet and genuine farming community whilst Brookside itself is blessed with lovely and extensive views over glorious rolling countryside.

The history or Brookside extends back to the early 17th century, but the intervening four centuries have certainly resulted in dramatic changes! The property has been extended to the rear at ground floor level, and therefore provides plenty of option when it comes to reception space - undoubtedly an essential with modern day family lifestyle. There is a splendid Hall with galleried Landing above, and one's attention is immediately drawn to the stunning Light Oak timberwork utilised in the staircase with its carefully crafted spindles and newel posts. There is a good sized formal Dining Room together with a cosy Sitting Room, and completing the more formal areas is a substantial Lounge that has splendid fireplace by way of a focal point. The concept of a Living Kitchen is very much in vogue and this is indeed, a feature of Brookside, and this provides a comprehensively equipped Kitchen area together with a substantial Living Space that has wide French doors opening out onto an extensive terrace. The facility of a Study is essential these days, and one has been incorporated within the improvements undertaken by our clients, and finally, there is a Gymnasium with Sauna and Shower Room, but the wide range of French doors overlooking the garden renders this room as being ideal for use as a Garden Room, if preferred. Completing the ground are a good sized Utility Room and a contemporary traditional Pantry, if that doesn't sound too contradictory!

On the first floor are four Bedrooms accessed from a long Landing, but the Master Suite is particularly impressive given the substantial adjoining Dressing Room, and the impressively appointed en-suite Bathroom. The other Bedrooms are "serviced" by the family Bathroom that incorporates a similarly high standard of contemporary appointment.

Brookside is set within some 1.7 acres and this comprises a spectacular undulating garden setting incorporating different areas, all dissected by the proverbial babbling brook and with lawns, terraces, and delightful woodland walks, with the most recent addition being an elevated formal garden with lawn and rose garden. Those with classic cars may relish the attribute of two substantial double Garages, whilst others will show more enthusiasm for the somewhat rare attribute in this part of the world of a pizza oven!

Heaton in effect, abuts the village of Rushton, which in turn, has excellent road links to the likes of Leek, Congleton and Macclesfield, each of which has different levels of facilities ranging from the traditional in Leek, to the cosmopolitan in Macclesfield, a town that also provides direct Inter-City rail services to both Manchester and London on an almost hourly basis on weekdays.

DIRECTIONS: Leave Macclesfield on the A523 and pass through the village of Bosley and then enter Rushton. At the far end of the village, by the Royal Oak public house, keep left onto the "old road" that goes up the hill but then turn immediate left, by the side of the pub into Sugar Street. Continue along this lane and leave Rushton, and Brookside will then be found on the left hand side approximately 1/4 mile after passing the last dwelling in Rushton.
