NO ONWARD CHAIN & SUBSTANTIAL PLOT! A most imposing, part timbered period property neatly positioned in a desirable, picturesque Cheshire village. Tudor Cottage represents a fine example of a property from its era, this grade II, listed thatched cottage with listed building consent originally dates back to the early 1600's and offers beautifully presented accommodation arranged over two floors extending to approximately 2500 sq ft! We believe that the property used to be three individual terraced cottages which has been transformed in later years to the stunning, spacious home we have today.
The property is situated on a generous plot (approx 0.4 acres) situated within the confines of Rode Heath and has large landscaped gardens with sweeping driveway, turning area and an extremely useful detached double garage. The cottage has also been recently redecorated throughout by the current owners providing a 'turn key' purchase opportunity for any prospective buyer.
Tudor Cottage boasts many period features but comes with some modern day comforts too, including open plan entertaining areas, granite working surfaces in the kitchen and a well appointed four piece family bathroom. The oak timber frame is prominent throughout in both the reception areas and also upstairs in the bedrooms.
Rode Heath itself is a lovely rural village in South Cheshire, it has an abundance of canal tow path walks along The Trent & Mersey Canal and views over adjacent Cheshire farmland and countryside. An excellent primary school is situated within the village, which is also in the catchment area for Alsager High School. Neighboring Sandbach, Alsager and Congleton are within easy travelling distance. The property is private but is still within easy access of the M6 motorway and A500 for ease of commuting to the north and south of the country and rail travel to London Euston (90 minutes) is available from nearby Crewe railway station.
The well proportioned accommodation extends to approximately 2,500 sq ft in total and is entered through an attractive timber door which leads through to a welcoming Dining reception hall with exposed brick feature fireplaces, oak beamed ceiling and terracotta tiled flooring throughout.
A small office/library room, ideal in this current climate can be accessed off the reception hall, whilst an inner hall leads through to a pleasant dining room with mature parquet flooring, a wine store and exposed timbers to both the walls and ceiling.
A spacious sitting room enjoys part timbered walls, feature windows and exposed ceiling joists along with an additional exposed brick fireplace. The hub of the home is the superb open plan dining kitchen/living area to the rear of the property which will prove to be any aspiring hosts perfect space, complete with a bespoke, oak kitchen with granite working surfaces, a country style cooker and French doors leading to the rear garden. For convenience, a useful utility is accessed just off the kitchen along with a downstairs, modern cloakroom which completes the ground floor accommodation.
The first floor accommodation can be accessed via two staircases at each end of the cottage and one from the kitchen, the upstairs accommodation is quirkily divided into three areas. The mezzanine landing can be accessed via stairs leading up from the kitchen where the master bedroom leads through to a separate dressing room with views overlooking the rear garden. The main family bathroom can also be accessed from this landing and has been recently improved to include a four piece sanitary suite with slipper bath. A second double bedroom with oak beamed ceiling is also accessed from this landing.
A further two double bedrooms are independently accessed via their own staircases at either end of the cottage, both bedrooms are equally as spacious and both enjoy impressive vaulted oak beamed vaulted ceilings.
Externally, the property is approached via a long sweeping driveway providing ample off road parking for numerous vehicles plus a turning area which leads to a detached double garage. The mature gardens are generous in size and have well stocked borders to all sides, a mixture of lawned and patio areas plus a fabulous ornamental garden pond. The established gardens to the rear enjoy an excellent degree of privacy and would make an excellent space to entertain friends and family all year round.
Please note our client advises us that the property benefits from full listed building consent, granted from Cheshire East.
