Cellar rooms. FIRST FLOOR: landing; separate WC; family bathroom, FOUR bedrooms (master with en suite facilities) SECOND FLOOR: landing; TWO bedrooms; modern en-suite shower room and box room.

On the opposite of the road are the TRIPLE GARAGES WITH EXTENSIVE DRIVEWAY PARKING AREAS.

A timelessly attractive magnificent late Georgian villa which stands proudly in a group of well-mannered similar properties. The current owner has loved every minute of her occupation here and you can easily see why. This fabulous home is so rewarding in many ways but ultimately serves you with the luxury of large and indulgent beautiful spaces. There is approximately 2600 sq ft of space arranged over three floors, with vast principal rooms of substantial cubic volumes. Rooms are grand, and the ceilings are high. And with big rooms comes big windows, doors and large dominating fireplaces. Layers of ornamental features dress the spaces beautifully. With homes such as these sometimes you get so much more than you have paid for. Generosity on this scale cannot be economically replicated today.

This is a beautiful home in a beautiful setting. This elegant parade of villas comprise colour washed three storey stucco elevations under slate tile roofs. Windows are sash with glazing bars and there are single and two storey bays. Doorways are four or six panelled with fanlights with glazing bars and with pilasters and pediments. Rich in history and character Moody Street is an old road with some surviving timber framed properties amongst grand period town houses. This eclectic mix brings unique character to the street scene. This is all a rare and unexpected treat for a property located just off Congleton's thriving High Street. Arguably, this is some of the best located period housing in the Town, as much of the earlier settlements formed against main roads, which are today busy and noisy.

As you would expect from this central location many local attractions and amenities are within easy walking distance. Vehicular access is easy too as the High Street links up with the bypass, which easily links up to all major routes. The bus station and taxi rank are also located just down the road. Morrisons supermarket is located in the town centre and within walking distance. 

Rarely do properties as special as this come to market in Congleton. This property has so much to offer and will deliver a unique living experience which for many is a dream. If you are in the market for a fine period home then you should act on the opportunity to secure this gem, before its too late. For we are sure that the eventual fortunate purchasers will enjoy this home for many years to come.
