Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated in one of Macclesfield's most sought after residential locations, this very deceptive cottage property, is believed to date from 1820. Extended over the course of the past two centuries, The Gables offers an amazing amount of family living space and has been the subject of extensive renovation and improvements over very recent times.
The property retains an immense amount of original period character that contrasts to stunning effect with a very modern and contemporary style in areas such as the family breakfast kitchen with island.
Boasting four individual reception areas and four lovely bedrooms, the property offers immense scope for adaptation and provides to the ground floor, both formal entertaining and informal family living space, whilst to the first floor, split-level, multi directional landings serve the bedrooms and family bathroom.
Although the property retains much original charm, there have been significant investments made; not only in fittings but energy efficiency.
The entire structure has been insulated with highly efficient thermal cladding, at considerable expense and the main roof has been refurbished and heavily insulated along with the installation of double glazing and a force-air flow roof system, amongst other practical improvements.
The accommodation is very well presented throughout and although outlined in greater detail, briefly comprises of a roomy and light reception hallway with feature ornate Minton quarry tiled floor. The reception area opens to two separate reception rooms to either side and leads to a rear corridor to a downstairs cloakroom and wc and further to a dining room and spectacular separate family 'island' breakfast kitchen and relaxing area.
To the first floor and accessed via a rather unusual multi-directional landing, will be found four bedrooms; including a fabulous Master Bedroom with vaulted and beamed ceiling and en-suite shower room and a spacious family bathroom.
Outside to the rear, there is a good sized fully enclosed garden with an elevated patio area and a useful garden store. To the side; a gravel driveway provides access to a parking area for several vehicles.
In summary; this is a rather unique property that offers something a little different to the norm - fabulous space, both inside and out, fantastic features and a location that is highly sought after - viewings are highly advised.
