A beautiful, extended and refurbished thatched country house, situated in a superb rural location within easy reach of both Knutsford and Hale, standing in stunning landscaped gated grounds of about 1.5 acres including a large, detached garage building with useful apartment over/gym over

Mere is a popular and sought after greenbelt hamlet that lies between Knutsford and Hale and provides easy access to all of the surrounding countryside and wider motorway network. The surrounding countryside is exceptional and yet access by car to nearby towns is just minutes away.

Willowbrook is a lovely detached country house, standing within beautiful private landscaped gardens and grounds including a large sweeping driveway with two pairs of gates, formal gardens, woodland and a paddock. The house has been redeveloped and extended over recent years and is presented beautifully by the current owners with balanced accommodation over two floors, extending to over 4000 sq ft in all. There are three main ground floor reception rooms, an entrance lobby with WC, and a lovely reception hallway with fireplace and a wood block floor, which runs throughout much of the ground floor. The main sitting room is a large triple aspect room with patio doors to the rear terrace and a superb bespoke bar, and has an adjoining dining room with an open oak frame between the two. A large family room overlooks and leads to the garden with an open fireplace, a fitted media wall and double doors to the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is spacious with a range of quality hand painted cabinets with stone worktops and a central island. There is enough space for a good sized 8-seater table and appliances include an Aga cooker, Gaggenau grill and hob and built-in dishwasher. Off the kitchen is a utility/boiler room with access to the driveway.

At first floor level there are five bedrooms in all – one currently used as a study. The main bedroom overlooks the front of the house, has a walk-in dressing room and an en suite bathroom with quality fittings including built-in cabinetry. Bedrooms two three have similar quality en-suites and bedroom four has a fitted corner window seat and a Jack-and-Jill en suite bathroom with a door to the landing, which also serves bedroom five, currently utilised as a fully fitted study with a quality wooden floor.

Externally, two sets of electric gates lead to a large shingle driveway providing off-road parking for an extensive number of cars and leading to a large, detached double garage building with twin up and over electric doors providing parking for two substantial cars. There is a superbly refurbished first floor, accessed via a separate or internal door, fitted and used as a gym, but could easily be utilised as a potential guest bedroom suite. Fittings include a superb oak floor, and beautifully finished spa style shower room with sauna.

The landscaped lawns and a small area of woodland sit to the side and rear of the house with a large entertaining terrace, and to the rear of the garage, is a further large parking area – great for additional hardstanding, and giving access beyond to a small paddock. The plot in all extends to 1.56 acres or thereabouts.
