INTRODUCTION Located in a conservation area, the Bostock Hall development is a safe and secure environment to live in and raise a family. Hidden behind a woodland boundary with entrance gates set back from the public road, few people - even the locals - could tell you exactly where Bostock Hall is, or what lies beyond its gates.
Within the grounds are 14 acres of beautiful private parkland with a lake and woodland for residents to roam and enjoy. The pretty residences, extensive grounds and lakeland setting, are all maintained to a high standard and provide a wonderful setting all year round for the people who live there. It is a safe environment for children and is close to great schools and amenities and offers great transport connections for business people who need to commute, being close to stations and the M6 motorway. With a friendly village-like community and social aspect for those who wish to join in, Bostock Hall offers the opportunity to live in a unique environment which indeed can be called a Hidden Gem.

The Walled Garden forms part of an outstanding development in the grounds of Bostock Hall. It is renowned in the locality as one of the best residential addresses and upon entering the development interested parties will instantly note the sheer beauty of the setting and the quality that is embedded into every aspect of the design of the area. The house itself forms part of an appealing courtyard of similarly high quality homes and has the advantage of being offered to the market with no ongoing chain and at a competitive price.

The accommodation opens with an elegant entrance hall that has as its focal point and main feature a full height window with an aspect to the courtyard over the front. From the entrance hall access can be gained to three reception rooms, the outstanding refitted kitchen and a ground floor cloakroom. The principal living room is an excellent space extending to 25' in length and having a fireplace as its focal point, in addition to a beautiful bay window to the front and double doors leading out to the rear garden. The study is well proportioned and has an aspect to the front whilst the dining room conveniently lies adjacent to the kitchen and has more than ample space for large table and chairs. The kitchen is a feature of real note having been refitted in recent times to an excellent specification and design and being equipped with a comprehensive range of wall and floor cupboards together with a beautiful granite preparation surface that has a lovely contrast colour and is rarely found. Off the kitchen/breakfast room is a useful utility room.

At first floor level the accommodation offers remarkably spacious and elegant living space. The master bedroom is particularly well proportioned and has extensive fitted bedroom furniture throughout. An en-suite shower room completes this master suite perfectly. Bedroom 2 is again a very large double and the size of most peoples master bedrooms, whilst bedrooms 3 and 4 both have aspects to the front and are of good double proportion. The family bathroom is fitted with an attractive period style suite with tiling to dado height.

To the front of the property there is an attractive lawned area together with laurel hedging whilst to the side of the property there is off road parking that leads to the garage. The walled rear garden is an excellent feature of the property being private, mature and very attractive, whose design minimises ongoing maintenance.

A viewing is absolutely essential. In the light of recent property sales in and around the area excellent levels of interest are anticipated.

The property is located in the grounds of the Bostock Hall development, which is centred around the Grade II listed Georgian hall. The development nestles in fourteen acres of wonderful conservation parkland including manicured gardens and ornamental lake.

The Hall was once home to the France-Hayhurst family and having fallen into disrepair was converted and renovated in the late 20th Century by P J Livesey & Co to an exceptionally high standard. The original walled garden now houses a range of executive family homes, each with driveway parking and garages. For what is essentially a rural location the property also has the benefit of being within a 5-10 minute walk to the Hayhurst Arms - vast emerging as one of Cheshire's finest gastro pubs/restaurants that opened in December 2014 and has attracted a huge following since that point.  

LOCATION Bostock is a small semi rural parish situated within the heart of Cheshire's finest open countryside, yet is by no means isolated and within easy daily travelling distance of local shops at both Davenham Village, Northwich, Tarporley and Knutsford town centre. For the commuter, the North West motorway network is also readily available providing a gateway to the North and South with Manchester International Airport. Nearby rail stations are available at Northwich, Plumley and Knutsford. Excellent educational facilities are available to suit children of most ages in both the State and private sector.

As already mentioned, within a five - ten minutes walk of the property is gastro pub / restaurant The Hayhurst Arms -
