New listing - no vendor chain *3 double bedroom detached cottage with 6.75 acres of land ** stables** stone outbuildings with potential for conversion residential/holiday cottages. Avona, an individual 3 bedroom cottage set within what has to be one of the most beautiful & secluded locations within the local area. Being obscured from the roadside, with the only clue to its existence being a bespoke signpost at the bottom of its private access road, which delivers you to immediate breath taking panoramic views over several counties, whilst providing an instant visualisation of just how wonderful your everyday life could be.
Upon immediate arrival you know this property is going to be special, by virtue not only of its previously mentioned surroundings but its classic stone cottage design which is framed by upvc hardwood effect windows and inviting covered porch. This charming cottage has been in occupancy by its present owners for over 3 decades, a true testimony to the delightful lifestyle it provides.
The sale of Avona not only represents an equestrian opportunity with its 6.75 acres of predominately flat grounds consisting of paddocks with two stables & impressive sized barn, log store, two hen houses set within a larger feed house, but also a superb investment opportunity, as included in the title are two stone outbuildings. These former miners cottages offer great potential for redevelopment (subject to approval) ideal for those looking to pursue a business opportunity for a holiday let. Or as a possible residential dwelling, which once converted would complement idyllic surroundings.
This cottage itself also offers much potential. At present the cottage is of a single storey with 3 double bedrooms & two bathrooms. It has been extended to take full advantage of its far reaching views, to include a contemporary style extension with vaulted ceiling having exposed oak beams & roof windows providing optimum light in cohesion to the full width windows.
In contrast there is a more traditional style open plan lounge which offers a relaxed & inviting ambiance courtesy of its two multi fuel stoves, which are a welcomed addition during the winter months & an additional accompaniment to the modern lpg fired heating system.
The kitchen is at the heart of the home with bespoke shaker style units & quality Neff appliances.
The formal grounds include established gardens which flourish during the spring & summer months that are a real delight to any keen gardener, which include a covered fish pond & attractive well stocked borders. In addition there are private woodlands to the curtilage, which are a delightful encouragement for nature & inquisitive children.
For those looking for a taste of the good life there is plenty of opportunity to be had. There is an orchard which includes an assortment of fruit trees plus a separate well stocked kitchen garden & serving greenhouses. There’s a useful utility store & further range of additional outbuildings which could inspire purpose such as a winery, hobbies room or an external office.
If you ever tire of your own picturesque grounds, neighbouring Bosley Cloud serves not only as dramatic backdrop, but as a wonderful hiking trail. This local beauty spot is owned by the national trust & is highly regarded national treasure, being one of many points of interest in the immediate area. The Gritstone trail also runs alongside, providing some of the best scenic hacking routes in the area.
An exciting & rare opportunity which will appeal to many purchasers looking to escape to the country whilst retaining the conveniences of the surrounding Staffordshire & Cheshire towns, their amenities & many available travel options.
