‘EARLSWAIE’ – AN ICONIC COUNTRY RESIDENCE OF CALIBRE! REMODELLED BY ITS HIGHLY RESPECTED OWNERS OVER A PERIOD OF DECADES CREATING A DISTINGUISHED HOME OF SUBSTANCE. SEMI RURAL DANE IN SHAW. CLOSE TO AMENITIES, SHOPS AND MAINLINE RAILWAY STATION AT HIGH TOWN. CONVENIENT ACCESS TO CONGLETON, MACCLESFIELD AND LEEK.

WONDERFULLY ELEVATED, ENJOYING FAR REACHING VIEWS TOWARDS THE FAIRWAYS OF CONGLETON GOLF COURSE AND CONGLETON EDGE. SUBSTANTIAL GARDENS AND GROUNDS OF 2 ACRES AND ADJACENT WOODLAND OF 4 ACRES OR THEREABOUTS. OUTSIDE SWIMMING POOL MEASURING 30’ x 18’. EXTENSIVE DRIVEWAYS, GARAGE AND NUMEROUS OUTBUILDINGS. Discreet superb approach and glorious views.

A place in the country, located within the picturesque rural locality of Dane In Shaw, surrounded by countryside, enjoying extensive views and positioned close to 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 and the Peak District. The twisting country lanes are interesting to explore and offer enjoyable walks and are suitable for horse riding, as are the well known walking routes of the ‘Gritstone Trail’ and Staffordshire Way nearby, Rudyard Lake with Steam Railway and the Biddulph Valley Way bridle path.

Locally, the village of High Town is just a short journey down Reades Lane and provides a wide range of amenities including great pubs, a chip shop, chemist, post office, hairdressers, newsagents etc. It's an idyllic semi rural spot, yet without feeling isolated and is practically close to the bustling town centre of Congleton. The towns of Macclesfield and Leek are within 9 and 8 miles respectively, with Manchester Airport some 15 miles away offering flights to worldwide destinations. The main town of Macclesfield has a 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. The historic market town of Leek is just a short drive away, with its cobbled market place, unspoilt architecture and variety of independent shops, antiques and award winning tea shops. Leek is home to speciality producers of a variety food and drink. Traditional markets can be found in the restored indoor Victorian Butter Market and outdoor in the Market Place, with an antique and collectors’ market held outdoors each Saturday, a monthly ‘Leek Farmers and Craft Market’ and ‘Totally Locally’ Sunday market. Equally Congleton has a thriving range of facilities. Congleton railway station also provides links to the national rail network and connections to frequent expresses to London.

Earlswaie is well set back from the road and approached by a long sweeping driveway, with the formal grounds being a hugely attractive asset to this tremendous discerning residence. The outside SWIMMING POOL is a lovely addition with poolside rooms immediately available within the main house, making an early morning dip a regular start to the day.

The ground floor offers an impressive hallway, with a quite stunning wrought iron sweeping spiral staircase, with a selection of doors and openings leading to the principal rooms, namely the formal dining room and sitting room with views over the rear gardens. The breakfast kitchen is generous with large utility room adjacent, and spanning a good proportion of the rear elevation is the sun room which offers quite literally breathtaking views over the main gardens and beyond to the fairways of Congleton Golf Course. The 'piece de resistance' is the cavernous studio room with huge floor to ceiling bay window enjoying a poolside and garden view. Completing this floor is the rear hall with cloakroom off, additional front entrance door, access to the double garage and doorway leading down to the lower ground floor.

The lower ground floor, was originally designed for use as pool side rooms, but has since been changed to provide a self contained apartment with living room, bedroom, shower room and dining kitchen.

The first floor is reached via a splendid spiral staircase leading to the light and airy galleried landing with access to the roof space via a retractable ladder, with the roof space being fully boarded and spanning over 61’.

There are four large double bedrooms with bedrooms 1 and 2 served with a full bathroom and having a separate shower, plus the main family bathroom. Each of the bedrooms enjoy a contrasting delightful view of the grounds with bedroom 1 and 4 blessed with their own balcony terrace areas.

Outbuildings: Attached double garage, behind which is a store room, boiler room, w.c .and separate cold store.

Woodland: The woodland is all within boundary fencing and dry stone walls and extends to approximately 4 acres and useful access is found onto the Biddulph Valley Way bridle path

Outside, as befits a residence of such calibre and as mentioned above, are the private and formal gardens, extending to approximately 2 acres with 30' greenhouse and associated animal sheds, all of which will only truly be appreciated with the undertaking of a viewing, and by viewing our ONLINE VIDEO TOUR.

There is an extensive driveway which allows parking for numerous vehicles, motor home, caravans, trailers, horse boxes etc.
