The Chantry is a delightful and charming Victorian residence, situated in the heart of the most attractive Astbury village, famous for the Church of Saint Mary, which is a large battlement church built between the 11th and 15th Centuries, with the unusual combination of one spire and two towers. Interestingly, Josiah Wedgwood married his cousin Sarah, daughter of Richard Wedgwood, at the church on the 25th January 1764.

Within the village is the highly commended Astbury St Mary's Church of England Primary School, with Astbury Golf Club close by and the lovely rural public house "The Egerton Arms" serving its local folk. The town centre is a short drive away and access onto the A34 is immediate therefore travelling North or South to Staffordshire or Manchester is ideal.

The Chantry has most attractive elevations, retaining much of its original charm and character, offering well-presented extended accommodation throughout, externally are gloriously mature grounds with extensive lawns. In addition there is a large detached double garage with 1st floor accommodation.

On entering, the main entrance delivers you to the reception hall favoured with a beautiful distressed pine staircase with matching panelling. The hall with stairs down to the useful cellar and cloakroom off, offers doors to most of the reception rooms to include the main lounge, separate snug and dining room. The galley kitchen to the rear of the property opens into the garden room which enjoys a pleasant aspect over the gardens.

The return staircase leading to the first floor leads to the main landing with access to each of the four bedrooms (bedroom 4 currently serving as a dressing room and perhaps more suited to a nursery). Completing this floor is the family bathroom with three piece suite and a separate shower.

Outside, and as mentioned above, are the glorious private and formal gardens, which will only truly be appreciated with the undertaking of a viewing, extensive driveway plus an impressive large detached double garage, constructed in recent years, offering ample storage for two large vehicles with work area and with a useful loft room above.
