'Grand Designs, Location Location Location, A Place In The Country!'

This striking and quite unique property is believed to date from 1805 - Noonstone is a majestic and impressive country residence amounting to 6242 ft sq (580 m sq) of living space, in a commanding, elevated setting within nearly 2.18 acres (0.882 ha) of garden and paddock, and would certainly be the feature property on any of these well known TV shows and this is your chance to take the rare opportunity of owning such a special home! A second paddock can be rented on an annual basis from the National Trust of almost an acre. Looking for spectacular panoramic views both far and wide which extend over the Cheshire Plain and beyond to the Welsh Mountains? Then look no further…the views from Noonstone will leave you in awe!

The property has an interesting history, having been a wayside inn during the 19th century until losing its license in 1897. In the 1920's it became a Gentleman's Residence and it is apparent this re-incarnation was carried out with little regard to cost. Canadian oak floors, staircase and balustrade, internal doors and fitted cupboards were installed and the rooms configured for entertaining on a lavish scale including a 43' reception hall, a 34' drawing room and a billiards room. The design ensured the principal rooms took full advantage of the breathtaking sunsets and extensive views.

Noonstone in the 21st century is a tremendous family home, with superbly proportioned rooms and flexible first floor accommodation which allows either 7 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms or 5 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms and a separate suite of a reception/sitting room, bedroom, bathroom and a kitchen.

Externally is a front and side terrace, a lawn (formerly a tennis court) with lovely views, with a pavilion/summer house, stabling and garaging. The gardens include the full width terrace to the front, well stocked borders and a wide variety of flowering shrubs, bushes and specimen trees.

The lower ground floor houses the oil tanks and boiler. The range of outbuildings includes garaging, car ports, a workshop, 6 stables and a summer house overlooking the former grass tennis court.

The solid oak front door opens to an internal porch and then into a wide and welcoming entrance vestibule with a built in oak cloaks cupboards and Canadian oak floors which extend into the reception hall. This splendid area extends to the rear into a bay with a semi cupola glazed roof and has a magnificent turning oak staircase. Oak panelled doors lead off to the principal reception rooms and double doors lead to the billiards room. The drawing room has a period fireplace and a superb octagonal bay to maximise the view. The dining room similarly has a deep bay, oak floor and a period fireplace. A study also lies to the front of the house. The breakfast kitchen/family room has a comprehensive range of bare oak door base & wall cupboards with a central island with granite surfaces over, integrated appliances and is complemented by a Butler's Pantry and a utility room which has an access door to the rear porch.

On the first floor the landing gives access to the 5 principal bedrooms and 2 bathrooms including a master suite with a French door to a balcony, a dressing room and an en-suite bathroom with secondary access from the second dressing room. The self-contained suite of rooms includes a kitchen/laundry, 3rd bathroom with original Art Deco suite, reception room with double French doors to a balcony and a further double bedroom with a Juliet balcony. These could of course simply be utilised as 2 bedrooms.

On the lower ground floor the cellar houses the oil tanks and boiler. The range of outbuildings includes garaging, car ports, a workshop, 6 stables and a summer house overlooking the lawn.

Noonstone is located on the western side of Bosley Cloud in Timbersbrook, which stands behind the rear paddock of the house, enjoying an elevated setting with far reaching westerly views over the Cheshire Plain. Timbersbrook is a pretty stone built village, surrounded by beautiful countryside and situated on the 'Gritstone Trail', a well known local walk. The Macclesfield Canal below Bosley Cloud has a tow path providing a pleasant walking/cycling route and extends to the major canal networks.

The market town of Congleton, in the foothills of the Peak District, is a small, thriving old textile town straddling the River Dane and serves a large rural community. It has a comprehensive range of shopping, recreational and commercial facilities and is well placed for access to Macclesfield, Wilmslow and Manchester. Junction 17 on the M6 is about 9 miles away and provides convenient access to The Potteries and to the commercial and industrial centres of the North West. There are local primary and secondary schools in Congleton and private schools in Macclesfield and South Manchester, many of which provide coach services locally.
