EQUESTRIAN PROPERTY WITH 1.70 ACRES INCLUDING PADDOCK, NEWLY CONSTRUCTED STABLE BLOCK. COTTAGE WITH 3 BEDROOMS PLUS DRESSING ROOM, 2 RECEPTION ROOMS & STUDY, OPEN PLAN KITCHEN DINER. PP GRANTED FOR FURTHER EXTENSION. NO CHAIN! This traditional cottage is the perfect accompaniment to this rural retreat which extends to approximately 1.4 acres including a paddock and a newly constructed block -comprising of 3 stables, a tack room, open hay barn and plenty of space to park a trailer or horsebox creating a readymade facility for the keen equestrian and those seeking the good life. Approached via a private driveway, Ivy Cottage is almost obscured from the roadside only revealing its true magnitude upon the approach of the sweeping driveway. The cottage is traditional in build and although semi -detached, one could be forgiven of the assumption that the property is detached, giving its privacy from the neighbouring property which is almost obscured from sight. The cottage already has spacious accommodation which includes 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 versatile reception rooms plus a separate study. There is also an impressive sized dining kitchen complete with a recently installed Rayburn stove (installed in 2019) which is a homely enhancement that also provides the property’s central heating, in addition to the multi fuel stoves that are the main focal points of the two main reception rooms. Our vendors have also had planning permission granted to further extend the already generous sized accommodation and to convert the existing double garage- Reference 22/2075C, accessed through the Cheshire East planning portal. Externally, in addition to the paddock, there are extensive formal gardens which are laid to lawn with established borders that flourish throughout the seasons. There is a kitchen garden and a small orchard of fruit trees, which include apple and cherry which are a welcome addition to the gardens. Located within the highly desirable semi-rural location of Somerford, surrounded by open fields whilst being on the cusp of Congleton town which includes nearby local amenities of West Heath shopping precinct and local schools. The property enjoys accessible motorway and rail network access plus good road links to neighbouring towns of Sandbach, Holmes Chapel and Knutsford. Offered for sale with no upward chain, properties of this calibre are a rarity indeed.
