Stunning renovation, this property has been transformed both internally and externally to crease an individual and impressive detached family home making the most of the Country setting within the picturesque Cheshire village of Goostrey.
Designed by Allan Joyce Architects (property is displayed within their website:- http://tinyurl.com/7krgtq5), the renovation work was carried out by A J Field Developments for which the vendors won Master Builder of the Year in 2011 for Category 4, Large Renovation Projects, North West region (www.fmb.org.uk - events, master builder of the year 2011).
The current owners have dramatically transformed a 1960's detached property into stunning family home. With 'eco' additions such as the glazed front porch which heats the house on sunny days and the solar panel which provides the hot water during the summer months. A slate roof along with a mix of aluminium and timber windows give a contemporary feel.
The most stunning feature is the open plan grand entrance hallway which also doubles as a dining hall, with vaulted ceiling, velux roof windows and full height glass from the porch flooding the whole house with plenty of natural light. Bi folding doors allow rooms to be opened up into one or keep separate if required.
The master bedroom has the benefit of a cedar projecting bay overlooking the rear garden to make the most of the view and the countryside beyond.
With three further double bedrooms and three bathrooms, space is certainly not an issue.
The front of the property is a blank canvas, currently having a large barked area with power connection, can be transformed with lighting to suit a new purchaser. The property is not overlooked from the front or the rear. It is the back garden which is worthy of particular mention. Set in large grounds screened with trees and mature shrubs offer a great degree of privacy and also brings the countryside into your back garden.
Goostrey is a much sought after semi-rural village situated almost equidistant between the towns of Knutsford and Holmes Chapel and surrounded by delightful open countryside. Day to day requirements are met by the local shopping within the village whilst the larger towns of Knutsford and Holmes Chapel cater for more comprehensive needs. Excellent educational facilities are catered for in both the state and private sector with the primary school in the village having a good reputation. The rail station is on the main Manchester - Crewe - London line and access to the nearby Northwest motorway network is easily available at Holmes Chapel, junction 18 and Knutsford junction 19 of the M6. Manchester International Airport is also within easy reach. There are lovely country walks to be had on the property's doorstep and local beauty spots, in particular Shakeley Mere and in Knutsford Tatton Park. Leisure centres in the nearby towns cater for most sporting requirements and there are also a number of private sporting clubs including numerous notable golf courses within easy reach.
