Overedge is a wonderfully positioned 19th century farmhouse with splendid accommodation and substantial outbuildings which complement equestrian facilities, grounds and grazing which totals 11 acres or thereabouts. Discreet superb approach and glorious views.

A distinguished residence, bounded with established and formal mature gardens, including extensive lawns and terrace seating areas, Overedge has undergone considerable improvement since its origins, but nevertheless its potential is ready to be unleashed and provides the fortunate new owners with the opportunity of imposing their own style and individuality.

A place in the country, located in the heart of Cheshire within the stunningly picturesque semi rural locality of Timbersbrook, surrounded by countryside, extensive views across meadowland and positioned at the foot of Bosley Cloud, a prominent hill owned by the National Trust, popular with ramblers and local folk who, once at its pinnacle, enjoy the breathtaking, far reaching views over adjoining counties. The twisting country lanes are interesting to explore and offer enjoyable walks and are suitable for horse riding, as is the well known walking route of the ‘Gritstone Trail’ nearby and the Biddulph Valley Way bridle path.

Practically the towns of Macclesfield and Congleton are within 9 miles and 3 miles respectively, with Manchester Airport some 15 miles away offering flights to worldwide destinations. The main town of Macclesfield, is offered with its mainline railway station (London Euston in approx 1hr 45mins), excellent schools including Beech Hall Preparatory School, Kings School and a range of highly regarded secondary schools. The town offers an array of high street stores, shops, bars and restaurants. Equally the charming market town of Congleton is blessed with a thriving range of facilities, boasts a Marks & Spencer Simply Food, Tesco, butchers, florists and newsagents as well as essential services such as chemists, doctors and dentists. Congleton railway station also provides links to the national rail network and connections to frequent expresses to London.

On entering the solid wood entrance door closes with a satisfying ‘clunk’. Featured throughout the house are the distinctive curved bay windows which immediately grab you when you enter the formal dining room with its oak parquet flooring and impressive open fireplace. The drawing room is a sight to behold; oak panelling adorns the walls, bay windows enjoy differing aspects over the gardens and a wood burning stove sets off the room which has a distinct feel of pure retiring indulgence. There is a cloakroom off the inner hall and rising staircase to the first floor. Also from the hall is the breakfast kitchen, blessed with ample storage and is a decent enough size to accommodate a substantial dining table. In turn and from the kitchen is the large inner reception hall or possibly a snug, with the large separate utility and workshop room off, with these rooms most certainly suiting a variety of alternative purposes.

The delightful first floor galleried landing leads to all four of the double bedrooms, each with their own views of the private grounds and some enjoying far reaching views over adjacent farmland. The master bedroom and bedroom 2 are complemented with their own ensuite bath/shower room and finally completing the accommodation is the family bathroom.

Outside, as befits a residence of such calibre and as mentioned above, are the glorious private and formal gardens, which will only truly be appreciated with the undertaking of a viewing,

Outbuildings include a QUADRUPLE GARAGE with 4 electrically operated roller shutter doors. The garage measures approximately 56’ in length and would suit ease of conversion to provide stabling.

Land
The land is situated to the north east of the home and all within secure boundary fencing and dry stone walls and extends to approximately 10 acres of good grazing and mowable land. Useful access to the land is found directly from the curtilage of the property and a secondary access is provided off Brookhouse Lane too.
