Wharf Cottage, Needhams Wharf Close, is a modern and much improved mews-style home, situated within a small cul-de-sac location in the ever-popular Rainow Road area of Higher Hurdsfield, Macclesfield. As the name suggests; Needhams Wharf  Close stands on the original site of J.Needham's coal wharf - a historic canalside coal merchants. The wharf was located alongside the once bustling Macclesfield canal, which today of course is a much more peaceful environment; frequented more by dog walkers than narrowboats. The surrounding area's architecture reflects Higher Hurdsfield's Peak District National Park locality. The traditional red brick facades of the town, transform into natural Peak stone elevations once you climb Higher Hurdsfield's Rainow Road. Historically, the area has proved immensely popular due to the location being on the cusp of open countryside, and yet, it is still easily accessible to all the amenities the town centre has to offer. So, now to the property itself. The accommodation has been further extended and greatly improved by the present owners. A rear extension to the original lounge now provides a stunning orangery that opens to both the garden and internal accommodation; providing a glorious open view of the canal and distant towpath. The outside area is designed for ease of maintenance, with separated areas of terraces and pathways, and the addition of a fabulous heated summer room. Extensive maintenance and upgrades have also recently been undertaken, including the entire main roof of the property having been replaced, along with the installation of a new central heating combination boiler and numerous other improvements which are covered during the overview. The accommodation retains the original hallway, separating the kitchen from the living areas, and providing a welcoming enclosed space from the outside. The hallway benefits a useful cloaks and a storage cupboard, a feature that every home needs, but is often found lacking. The kitchen is accessed from the hallway and is fitted with a range of  Farrow & Ball French grey cabinets, to include the addition of a lovely larder cabinet. Quality SMEG appliances are integrated and include a fan-assisted oven, gas hob, extractor canopy, and Hisense compatible Bluetooth-connected dishwasher. The lounge is spacious and bright, featuring French doors which divide and open to the extended orangery - ideal for larger gatherings, or simply to relax and enjoy the lovely peaceful canal backdrop. The first floor landing provides a most useful laundry/storage cupboard, three bedrooms, and a lovely refurbished shower room, complete with a luxurious and roomy walk-in shower. The accommodation is warmed by a gas combination heating boiler, and the windows, orangery roof, and all doors, are double glazed for effective heat and acoustic insulation. Parking is provided to the front of the property, via a private driveway with attractive wrought iron fencing and double gates. Access to the rear garden is provided by a wide pathway and garden area to the side, which then extends towards the far rear. Ample space is provided for garden storage. Locally, and within a moment's stroll, several handy amenities include a small post office & general store. Just a few minutes farther, a Morrisons local store can be found. From Bridge 34 which lies adjacent to Wharf Cottage, a community bookswop library can be found - a sure sign of a strong local community spirit! The canal offers the chance to spend some quality time away from it all and amongst some stunning open countryside. One can easily walk to the picturesque villages of Kerridge and Bollington in under 45 minutes to the north, whilst in a southerly direction, Sutton and the superb destination eatery, Sutton Hall, may be reached in under 20 minutes; with Bosley and the outskirts of Congleton lie further afield for the more energetic. This is a lovely location; close enough to walk into the town centre, and yet far enough away to access some of the area's most breathtaking countryside, with ease. Maintenance is a major consideration for many, especially in these present times of rising building costs - this property has been well-loved, and after all, is relatively new compared to the majority of the neighbouring properties in the locality. We feel this would be an ideal home for those considering a downsize, or certainly anyone searching for their first home or slight upsize. As becoming more and more popular, this is a perfect relocation proposition for those wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of busier environments. All in all, this is a most desirable property, situated in a highly popular residential location; close enough to the town for the convenience of the railway station and amenities, and yet far enough away to enjoy a slightly slower pace of living. Viewing appointments are highly recommended in order to fully appreciate this super home and fabulous location. Please contact Simeon Rains in association with The Good Estate Agent. Our central Macclesfield office is situated opposite Macclesfield railway station at 52 Waters Green SK11 6JT.

Outside - Rear Garden: Accessed via French doors from the orangery & also via a pathway leading from the front, the rear garden has been designed with ease of maintenance as a preference. The outlook would be hard to beat. Directly backing onto the Macclesfield canal, with the leafy towpath to the farthest point; this is simply a fabulous place to watch the world go by at a most leisurely pace. With the occasional narrowboat gently passing by, this is one of the loveliest of places to be on a warm summers day, either relaxing with friends & family or simply pottering around in the garden - what a life! Maybe a consideration would be to moor a boat of one's own at the foot of your garden? The garden is fully enclosed & slightly separated presently; forming three or four differing areas. To the immediate rear of the orangery, the area is semi-enclosed by a dwarf stone wall and is utilised presently as an entertaining and relaxation space. This area is served by attractive up/down lighting positioned to the immediate rear of the orangery. Dividing the two halves, a flagged path runs from the front of the property & down the centre of the rear garden toward a wrought iron gate & low wall, which opens to a mooring at the canal's edge. The far left side of the garden extends to become ever so slightly elevated, to run out towards the canal edge at an angle adjacent to the neighbouring canal bridge. A fabulous 16' x 8' heated summer house offers a great place to shelter from the sun or could be adapted and utilised for a diverse range of other uses. This side of the garden is flagged and currently provides dual use as a seating area, as well as providing hardstanding for a large garden shed. To the side, the garden is mainly laid with stone pebbles & provides an ideal basis to create a cottage-style potted garden, or vegetable/herb garden. A wrought iron gate opens to the front & a flagged path leads to a double-width brick-blocked driveway. The driveway is enclosed by a dwarf stone wall surmounted by attractive wrought iron railings to one side & wrought iron railings to the other. Double gates offer secure private parking for up to two cars.
