Woodbrook Road is a quiet cobbled lane which leads up to The Edge, a woodland conservation area managed by the National Trust which is ideal for country walks and dog walking. Bollin Tower is also well placed for easy access to the thriving village centre and the railway station with its services to Manchester Piccadilly and Manchester Airport. The village is renowned for its excellent restaurants, bistros and bars, the Cricket and Tennis Club, specialist shops and small supermarkets. Wilmslow offers more sophisticated and mainstream shopping facilities and the railway station places London Euston under 2 hours away. Sporting, recreational and educational facilities abound in the area and the Peak National Park is a short drive away.


Commissioned by architect John Rogers in 1846, 1 Bollin Tower is an exquisite Grade II listed castellated gentleman’s residence with a rock faced brown sandstone facade under a Welsh slate roof. This imposing property is steeped in history and mentioned in Pevsners ‘Buildings of England’. An octagonal turret displaying the Stanley Coat of Arms with a higher turret corbelled out from its side provides a striking first impression and offers arguably one of the finest views in Cheshire for those who are brave enough to venture to the top. For those of a less daring disposition, commanding views can be enjoyed from all four of the bedrooms. The property displays a wealth of character features such as wooden mullioned and transomed windows with hood moulds, and internally, Minton tiled flooring, deep skirting’s, cornicing and picture rails.

The current vendors have sympathetically renovated and improved the property over the years using carefully selected materials and expert craftsmen. A dramatic entrance vestibule leads through to a magnificent reception hall with impressive period arched screen, beautifully restored Minton tiled flooring, original cornice and open fire with marble surround. The drawing room is of generous proportions with magnificently ornate cornicing, semi octagonal bay and oak flooring whilst a contemporary multi fuel burning stove providing an attractive focal point. The dining kitchen by David Lisle has been intelligently designed and features oak ‘in frame’ shaker style units with granite work surfaces set around a central island incorporating a breakfast bar. Appointed with integrated appliances, a Viking range oven and feature halogen lighting the kitchen is ideally suited to modern living. A rear entrance hall with bespoke oak and glass staircase leads to the first floor and completes the ground floor accommodation.

The first floor landing leads to three double bedrooms, a w.c. and a separate shower room. The master bedroom is of similar proportions to the drawing room with semi-octagonal bay, oak flooring and a timelessly attractive period fire with marble surround. The recently re-fitted main family bathroom is off a half landing between the first and second floor which in turn leads to the fourth double bedroom. Situated off this bedroom is a versatile room perfectly suited as a study, dressing or hobbies room which allows access onto the roof and to the tower.

1 Bollin Tower is set along a sweeping driveway with generous front gardens which enjoy a good degree of privacy. A raised terrace to the front provides the perfect space for enjoying the afternoon sun. Adjoining the rear of the property is a private low maintenance York stone paved garden with two small brick built outbuildings linked by a covered seating area.

Vehicular access to the rear of the property is along a shared cobbled driveway which opens into a setted courtyard and private parking area.

Planning permission has been granted for the construction of a detached garage building with cinema room above extending to around 600 Sq Ft over two floors. Plans can be viewed at our office or via the Cheshire East planning portal (reference: 17/3637M . This offers excellent potential for ancillary accommodation subject to the necessary consents.

A regal property in a befitting location, Bolin Tower should be viewed without hesitation.

Square Footage: 2,903 sq ft
