A distinctive residence, in one of the most desirable addresses to be had within Congleton. The lane itself is a wide avenue, flanked with mature leafy trees, with most properties discreetly positioned and well set back from the road behind lawned gardens. It is beautifully situated on the fringe of Congleton, bordering on open countryside and is excellently sited on the western border providing convenient access to excellent schools such as Congleton High School, Blackfirs and Quinta Primary Schools as is the West Heath shopping centre. This property's position allows virtually immediate access on to the main arterial route to the M6 motorway which lies 6 miles to the west and Manchester Airport is approximately 17 miles north and again easily accessed by road.

The area has been further enhanced with the completion of the new Congleton link road, which opened in 2021. The Congleton link road joins the A534 Sandbach Road (to the west of Congleton) with the A536 Macclesfield Road (to the north of the town).

Congleton offers a perfect blend of cultural and leisure activities, and well-rated schooling. It hosts a choice of independent and multiple shops, as well as regular markets and craft fairs. The Daneside Theatre and the town’s Jazz & Blue Festival enhance an active cultural scene.

The town’s retail park offers a Marks & Spencer Simply Food, a comprehensive Boots, a large Tesco and more. The town boasts independent butchers, florists and newsagents as well as essential services such as chemists, doctors and dentists, and a gateway local hospital.

Somerford has outstanding transport and communications links :

• Immediate access to A34 and the just completed Congleton Link Road, which provide convenient main road travel to the North’s cities including  Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool, and South to The Potteries, Newcastle under Lyme and Birmingham.

• Somerford is a 10 minute drive from junction 17 of the M6 Motorway, the North West’s primary arterial route, providing easy access to the surrounding areas, towns and cities.

• Manchester International Airport is only 18 miles away, offering direct flights to over 180 domestic and worldwide destinations.
• The major regional rail hub of Crewe is less than 12 miles by swift main roads, and will incorporate the new HS2 line, providing London links in 55 minutes.
• Congleton’s own railway station is 2 miles away, and provides frequent expresses to Manchester, and regular connections to Stoke on Trent and beyond

26 Black Firs Lane dates back to the 1930’s boasting impressive accommodation of outstanding proportions, with FOUR bedrooms, and an impressive host of comfortable living accommodation; having been tastefully restored allowing its already inherent character to combine with modern requirements. It sits proudly amongst its generous grounds which are formed mainly with lawns, offering a safe haven, ideal for families, and creating a spacious environment to meet with family and friends. The front offers substantial parking for numerous vehicles. The generous multi room layout is an ideal set up to allow easy working or schooling from home. On entering, the reception hall provides the original shallow rise return staircase to the first floor. There are numerous reception rooms, each allowing versatility of use, with a separate sitting room found to the front with attractive stained glass windows. The dining room could even suit a playroom with cosy open coal fire. Continuing with the ground floor accommodation is the large family breakfast kitchen (with utility, pantry, and cloakroom off), from which is the bespoke dining orangery, and being to the rear of the property takes advantage of an aspect over the extensive gardens.

The wide shallow rise staircase with oak balustrade leads to the galleried landing with beautiful feature stained glass window. The principle bedroom found to the front enjoys a lovely aspect over the front gardens and is complemented with its own ensuite shower room. Bedrooms 2 and 3 are both equal sized doubles, with the 4th being a single. Finally, is the generous family bathroom with three piece white suite and separate shower.

Outside, the property is well set back from the road, and through brick pillar gate posts, the driveway opens up offering a vast amount of room for parking, The CAVERNOUS DETACHED GARAGE measuring 29' 0 x 14' 0 in itself is colossal, but the fact it comes with a fully functional self contained apartment above, is the icing on the cake.

The rear gardens are exceptionally large, mainly laid to lawn, maybe a "football or cricket pitch" for the kids or, for keen gardeners, this is heaven, essentially a blank canvas to landscape to your heart's content. They also feature extensive Indian stone paved terraces which are just perfect for lounging in the sun and partying alfresco.

All in all, a delectable period home, oozing with character, with quite unexpected and vastly versatile accommodation, blessed with generous and private grounds in a locality of constant high demand. Call Timothy A Brown today......to arrange your own private viewing!
