**MAGNIFICENT MANOR HOUSE OFFERING AN ABUNDANCE OF CHARM AND CHARACTER SAT WITHIN ONE THIRD OF AN ACRE**

This unique and wonderfully proportioned central village property offers an abundance of living and sleeping accommodation. This excellent late Victorian period property provides traditional features and showcases the original charm within the character that is displayed throughout. This magnificent home boasts a fantastic plot and is located within a third of an acre. The property is in need of a full programme of modernisation in order to restore it to its former glory. However, there are fantastic features that when carefully retained can bring out the true potential this home has to offer. Within the property are nine/ten excellent sized bedrooms offered over the first and second floors. These seperate floors show the history this home offers with it still being clear where the servants and home owners differed in sleeping quarters. There are excellent views across the village and to the fields and Jodrell Bank in the distance from the top floor and plenty of natural light floods in ensuring these rooms are airy and bright. There are four double bedrooms offered to the second floor with the potential for a fifth. The first floor features a galleried landing where large stained glass windows make the focal point of this large space. There are five bedrooms to the first floor of which four are doubles and one is versatile in its use and could alternatively be used as an office, dressing room, nursery or potential to alter into an en-suite. There is also a large family bathroom and seperate WC located on this floor. To the ground floor again it becomes apparent which parts were the servants quarters and recreational areas and which were the homeowners’. There are three large and grand reception rooms of which all showcase traditional features such as the stained glass windows, traditional open fireplaces and the traditional large skirting and coving. There is also a spacious and grand entrance hall of which the original solid wooden door with the traditional glass insert enters into and the original doorbell features. Within the servants quarters there is an additional reception room that again has an open coal fireplace and features the servant's call bell system that has carefully been retained. There is also a fantastic feature within the inner hall where the traditional serving hatch, preparation and storage for cutlery and crockery can be found.  To the ground floor there is also a wood-effect fitted kitchen with an integral oven and hob. There is a shower room that has a recent addition of a shower suite and still features the traditional Minton tiled flooring. The traditional tack room also features the Minton tiled flooring that oozes the charm and character this home brings. From the outer hall the cellar can be accessed which again is of a great height and has further rooms that provide a fantastic space to expand into if so desired. Externally there is a driveway that leads to the front of the property and provides off street parking for several cars. The boundaries are flexible with the property and can be easily altered to suit a potential purchaser’s needs. There are well established gardens sat within the third of an acre plot that are well stocked with mature shrubs and decorative borders. There are also mature trees and hedgerows ensuring privacy and the brick built walls enclose them.
