2 Knutsford Road Cottages is situated in the sought after village of Chelford to the south east of Knutsford. Despite its semi-rural location there is an excellent range of local shops including
independently owned butcher, local store and hair salon in addition to the Village Hall, Londis store, Chelford Farm Supplies and The Egerton Arms Chophouse & Café Deli. A wider range of
comprehensive amenities are available in the nearby market town of Knutsford.
Local recreational facilities include The Mere Golf Resort & Spa and Wilmslow Golf club and the village has its own cricket club with Toft and Over Peover being within a short driving distance. In
Knutsford there is a sports club, gyms, football club and racket sports in addition to the ever-popular Tatton Park with its historic country house and beautiful parkland.
On the educational front the village is well catered for with Chelford Primary School and Peover Superior Endowed Primary School and Knutsford High School being nearby. There are exceptional independent schools including King's Macclesfield and Alderley Edge School for Girls further afield.
Commuting to the commercial centres of the north west and beyond is straightforward with easy access to the M56 and M6 and the property is within walking distance of Chelford train station providing a 2hr30 service to London via Crewe and a direct 35m service to Manchester Piccadilly. There are international airports at Manchester & Liverpool respectively.
2 Knutsford Road Cottages dates from 1891 and is believed to have been the workers residence for the former Astle Estate. The property is constructed of brick with an English Cottage brick
bond under a slate roof and benefits from mains gas centralheating and double glazing throughout. The vendor has recently undertaken a scheme of modernisation and extension, substantially increasing the floor area across 2 floors and an additional 3rd bedroom being created within the loft space. Despite the upgrade the property still retains some original features with exposed brick walls, picture rails and of particular note open fireplaces.
The front door opens into a staircase hall which links directly onto the living room having oak floor, an exposed brick chimneypiece with timber mantle and brick hearth housing a multifuel burner and the bay window overlooking the front garden. Opening off the lounge is the open plan kitchen and dining area designed with modern day living in mind with a sociable seating area and opens through to the dining area creating a wonderful open entertaining space to the rear of the house. The kitchen is fitted with a range of
wall and base units under worksurfaces incorporating stainless steel sink unit, Vailant gas combi-boiler, CDA 4 ring ceramic hob
and oven below.
To the first floor is a master bedroom with a dressing area and a further double bedroom having a feature brick wall and rear aspect over the garden. Between the 2 principal bedrooms is a dressing room which could be used as a home office or indeed a nursey. Adjacent is a recently fitted family bathroom with fully tiled wall and floor and fitted with separate shower, bath, pedestal wash hand basin with vanity unit below, WC and a towel radiator. The staircase continues to the second floor which has been converted to create a superb third bedroom and study/play area. The bedroom affords ample storage within the eaves and has plenty of light through roof windows. Please note some parts have restricted headroom.
To the front of the property is a pathway and small garden with public parking on the road. The rear is accessed through the house and via two rights of way through the neighbouring properties for bins and garden waste. The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn with established cottage style beds and brick pathway leading to a brick under a slate roof workshop.
This building has two separate sections with electric, water, storage and wall and base units and would certainly lend itself to be converted to a home office or indeed used as a store for bikes
and garden equipment. In addition to the workshop there is a garden shed adjacent to which is a play area with children's activity equipment.
Mains water, electricity, gas and drainage. Telephone and broadband connections. None of the services have been tested and no warranty is given as to the connections.
