**MOTIVATED SELLERS - REDUCED BY £50,000**

A Grade II* listed gentlemen’s residence located in a convenient backwater, said to be set in approximately 3.5 acres of grounds (tbc) and was the seat of Sir Francis Bowyer in the early 17th Century. This home is circa early-mid 18th Century and it was substantially reduced and remodelled in the 19th Century.

In recent years the present vendor has modernised it sympathetically to retain many original features. Two particular unique features are the fine open well staircase which has scrolled tread-ends and a wrought iron and brass balustrade with anthemion decorations and James Bateman monogram dated 1800. The drawing room has a remarkable mid 18th Century Rococo plaster ceiling, the design is spread over the flat ground with arabesques, interlacing, cartouches, shells, ribands, baskets of flowers, branches of blossom and delicate sheaves, with an elaborate centrepiece and an enriched modillion cornice.

James Bateman was an eminent horticulturalist and landscape gardener who designed the gardens at Biddulph Grange and we are lead to believe he executed his first landscape design at Knypersley Hall.

The centrally heated accommodation comprises: hall, cloakroom/w.c., drawing room, morning room, study, dining room, fitted kitchen, games room, utility and garden room to the ground floor.

At first floor level the galleried landing leads to a suite comprising: master bedroom, en suite and dressing room, 3 further double bedrooms, one having a walk in wardrobe, separate shower room and a luxurious bathroom.

The property has an impressive private approach through double wrought iron gates down a tree lined drive and past the large pond with caves, to a circular driveway with mature holly hedges and trees in the middle island area. There is another entrance via the courtyard with a road beneath the traditional arch, all set in a fabulous 3.5 acres of grounds. A footpath from the drive leads to the front with steps, down to a formal flat lawn which was probably used in the past for croquet or tennis and which abuts onto open countryside.
