Landmark Grade II listed house and barn in about 2.25 acres

Old Court House lies hidden within a parkland setting of over 2.25 acres within Legh Road Conservation area within about 0.6 miles of the thriving town centre of Knutsford, one of Cheshire's prettiest towns. The town has lies on the edge of Tatton Park and has a wonderful range of specialist shops, restaurants and bars in addition to a Booths supermarket, golf courses and leisure facilities. A short drive from M6 junction 19 and a 50 minute train journey to central Manchester the town is well placed for access to the North West's commercial centres and Manchester International Airport is only 10 miles away. Golf courses abound locally, livery yards are numerous and Tatton Park is a popular destination for walkers and country lovers alike. Toft Cricket Club is less then ¼ mile away and the town's schools are well regarded. The Grange School at Hartford and Kings School Macclesfield are within easy reach with preparatory schools in both Alderley Edge and at Terra Nova in Lower Withington.

Believed to date in part from 17th Century, this fascinating period residence and its separate barn are Grade II listed and are very much part of Knutsford history. The vaulted dining room is believed to have been the court house and retains its 17th Century panelling and a stunning fireplace. The wonderfully proportioned drawing room is clearly Georgian whilst to the rear the lower ceilings have a farm house character. So this is a house of many periods and as such, is a fascinating opportunity to upgrade to create a really characterful period home in a parkland setting of over 2.25 acres within walking distance of both the town and countryside.
Although attached in part to a former wing of the house, now a separate residence, the property enjoys views over its own land to both the front and side and is predominantly arranged over two floors although there is a cellar housing the gas central heating boiler. The large entrance porch has double doors and a tiled floor with a glazed door and side panels opening through to the impressive hall with a splayed oak staircase leading off and a stone fireplace lined with Delft tiling. A boot room with a wash hand basin opens off the hall and there is a separate w.c. To the right of the hall is the lovely Georgian drawing room with its 10'11" ceiling height and a dual aspect with sash windows, shutters and a stunning period fireplace with a cast inner. The magnificent oak panelled vaulted dining room with leaded & stained glass upper window lights and a bay overlooking the gardens. A beautiful carved oak firepiece has a dog grate and there are connecting doors to the drawing room and two doors from the main hall before which is a double sided storage area with cupboards. An inner hall gives access to the breakfast kitchen with a bay and older style cupboards. This adjoins a porch at the rear and a breakfast room. We understand these rooms were originally one, a billiard room, with glazed roof panels, since covered. A door leads from the breakfast room to a delightful beamed snug with a French door to the rear walled garden. Between the snug and the main hall is a butler's pantry with storage cupboards and doors to each end and both inner hall areas, one of which has stairs down to the cellar.
The galleried landing with its oak balustrade is splayed and leads up to the master suite with its dressing room and en suite bathroom and there are three further bedrooms, a separate w.c., linen room and a house bathroom.
The Grade II listed barn is detached from the main house and has a covered vehicle canopy to the front. Two storey, there is a games room, workshop, stores, a utility room and double garage with two further single storey rooms beyond the canopy area.
The long driveway meanders through the grounds to the house and barn with parking/turning areas.
