**A QUITE RARE OPPORTUNITY TO OWN A PIECE OF CHESHIRE HISTORY**

The Old School House is a pretty 3 bedroom semi detached cottage dating back to the early to mid 1800’s. Having been extended and updated over the years, brimming with potential to further transform this historical home into something quite special. A charming home with interesting and attractive architectural elevations, swooping roof changes and a host of character features which just must be viewed to appreciate.

Side entrance. Lounge. Dining room. Breakfast kitchen and shower room. 3 Bedrooms and bathroom. Extensive gardens.

This is one of the most desirable parts of Cheshire in which to live; an area steeped in history, with many small villages found down its winding country lanes which have become home to many of the region’s elites.

The stunning rural setting offers plenty of opportunities to explore the many Historic Country Homes and Parks, such as Gawsworth Hall, Biddulph Grange and the nearby Rode Hall and gardens. The ever popular visitor attraction at Jodrell Bank Observatory, is also only a stone’s throw away, as are the many riverside walks alongside the idyllic banks of the River Dane.

The village boasts a number of listed buildings, including Swettenham Mill, which dates back to 1645, Swettenham Hall, which also dates from the 17th century, and, of course, the Swettenham Arms itself.

St. Peter’s church, which stands directly opposite the pub (in fact, the pub was originally a nunnery) has roots going back to the 13th century, and there are still signs of the original building in some of the walls and in the sanctuary. The tower, which dominates the village was built in 1721. The original family vault of the Swettenhams, the principal family of the village, is under the chancel, and all the rectors from 1304, when the incumbent was Wittmus de Swettenham, are listed inside the church.

Clonterbrook House, a former manor house was built in 1697 for Jeffery and Katherine Lockett. Around the house are three former farm buildings that have been converted into other uses.

Other points of interest in and around the village include the Swettenham Meadows Nature Reserve, an 8.6 hectare site which is a haven for water plants, wildflowers and wildlife, especially birds and butterflies. There’s also the Quinta Arboretum right by the pub, created in the 1960s by Professor Sir Bernard Lovell, of Jodrell Bank fame.

The village is well-placed for easy access to the M6 motorway, via Holmes Chapel, and there is ready access to Manchester International Airport at Ringway, which is approximately 30 minutes drive away. There is a main-line station at Goostrey, and trains to London Euston may be accessed either in Wilmslow or Macclesfield. Good schools for all ages are available in the area, in both the public and private sectors.

Macclesfield's town centre offers an excellent range of facilities to cater for all needs. There is a popular monthly "Treacle Market", which is a bustling Arts, Antiques, Crafts, Food and Drink Market, held on the cobbles of the town centre. There are a number of recreational facilities, including a Leisure centre, rugby, football and cricket clubs. Excellent educational needs are catered for in the local private and state primary and secondary schools, which are highly regarded. Macclesfield railway station lies on the main Manchester Piccadilly to London Euston, providing regular Inter-City services.
