A DELIGHTFUL 17th CENTURY STONE BUILT SEMI DETACHED RESIDENCE (SUBSTANTIALLY REBUILT IN THE 1970'S), PURPORTED TO HAVE BEEN A LOCAL PUBLIC HOUSE IN YEARS GONE BY AND IN THE PAST WAS ORIGINALLY TWO COTTAGES.

LOVINGLY MAINTAINED YET READY FOR CONSIDERATE RENOVATION. HUGE SCOPE AND POTENTIAL. THREE DOUBLE BEDROOMS. BATHROOM AND SMALL ENSUITE. RECEPTION HALL. LARGE LOUNGE. BREAKFAST KITCHEN. ATTACHED OUTBUILDINGS TO INCLUDE WORKSHOP, UTILITY AND W.C. LARGE ATTACHED GARAGE WITH MEZZANINE FLOOR. PRIVATE DRIVEWAY AND GARDENS TO FRONT. ENCLOSED COURTYARD TO REAR. SEMI RURAL HAMLET OF RUSHTON SPENCER.

You know when a property is sure to create a stir - well here we have it! A fantastic and rare chance arises for the potential and fortunate new owner to transform this understated home into something quite special. The locally sourced stone which features as the main build material used in the construction of this home, is naturally attractive and pleasing to the eye, with the property sitting in a well balanced position behind a Macclesfield stone paved driveway and front lawned gardens.

On entering, immediate attention is drawn to the lovely hand crafted oak joinery which features throughout the property. The past owner who happened to be a highly skilled and gifted craftsman lovingly created the handmade skirting boards, beams, architraves, staircase, bedroom cupboards and the fitted kitchen from his favoured oak. The reception hall is spacious, with oak staircase and doorway through to the generous lounge which spans the full width, having a bow window and open fire. The breakfast kitchen again is a decent size offered with a surprising array of storage and features a useful understairs pantry too. The first floor landing offer doors to the THREE DOUBLE BEDROOMS (the master with fitted bedroom furniture and which also boasts a small ensuite), and finally is the family bathroom.

Outside and to the rear are some attached outbuildings which with a little ingenuity could be knocked through to form part of the main house, but currently act as a workshop, utility and w.c. Attached to the side of the property is a large garage with sliding wooden door with a useful mezzanine floor above. Again it would be feasible to incorporate the garage or its first floor to the main part of the house, thus creating further floor space (subject to local authority consents).

The property has mains water and electricity, is heated via an oil fired central heating system (which we expect requires an upgrade) and the drainage is via septic tank, which again will require replacement.

Rushton Spencer is a sought after rural village, which boasts some local amenities, in particular its own primary school, classed as "outstanding" by Ofsted, with the centres of Congleton, Leek and Macclesfield just a short drive away.

Macclesfield is a thriving market town that provides a comprehensive range of shops, varied social and recreational amenities and good schools for children of all ages. For the commuter, Manchester International Airport and its connection with the North West motorway network are approximately thirty minutes away by car and the railway station in Macclesfield provides fast and frequent Intercity and commuter links with Manchester, London and the surrounding business centres.
