BY WAY OF INFORMAL TENDER (CLOSING DATE FOR SEALED BIDS IS 12 NOON ON THE 9TH APRIL 2020) - NO ONWARD CHAIN - OFFERS INVITED IN EXCESS OF £200,000.

A PRIME POSITIONED VICTORIAN LODGE BOASTING GENEROUS GROUNDS - PRIMED AND READY FOR FULL RENOVATION. OR A POTENTIAL DEMOLITION AND FULL REBUILD PROJECT (subject to pp).

The Lodge is purported to be the gatehouse to Mossley House, a large 19th century Gothic style house which has since been demolished and replaced by a housing development.

The Lodge, unlike Mossley House, continues to live on, and although occupied for many years until recently, now provides the fortunate new owner with the opportunity to transform this sadly run down residence into something really quite special. Equally, those with appetite may see this as a complete demolition project and full rebuild (subject to necessary planning consents). It sits amidst its extensive mature grounds which extend to approximately 671m² (0.165 acres).

The quirky and remarkably unusual formation is bursting with inherent features, from the stone mullioned windows, exposed beams to the steep pitched roof elevations. Internally is a generous reception room, used latterly as the lounge/dining room, with an inner lobby off with discreet w.c. The kitchen space although basic is found to the rear and will enjoy an aspect over the grounds, finally to the ground floor is a further decent sized reception room. To the first floor, the split level landing offers doorways to the two attic style bedrooms with steep pitched ceilings and then completing the accommodation is the separate bathroom. The property enjoys such benefits as gas central heating and majority PVCu double glazing.

Literally within 5 minutes' walk (if that…depending on your speed) you will find the town’s railway station (so no need to drive there) which offers links to national rail networks with frequent connections to London Euston and Manchester Piccadilly. Manchester International Airport is also easily accessible. Again within an easy walk is a dizzying array of shops at High Town to include a chemist, bakers, hardware and convenience store, barbers, hairdressers and post office, plus the latest edition….The Wonky Pear…a just opened micro bar, hostelry….with a lovely eclectic relaxed atmosphere. School catchment wise, the local, easily reached C of E Mossley Primary School is close by and is another draw for families to locate within this locality, plus before and after schools and day nursery are within easy reach too.

Cheshire countryside is pretty much on its doorstep and you can enjoy gentle walks along the tree lined Biddulph Valley disused railway line and Macclesfield Canal.
