Situated on the edge of the village with a fine open aspect over countryside opposite Monkstone is a highly desirable and most impressive property which has recently undergone extensive redevelopment and now provides classic styled accommodation extending to just under 2,000sq ft. Approached through ornamental semi-circular walls the golden gravel driveway provides off road parking for several vehicles and passes through the house providing covered hard standing for two vehicles with an oak double garage behind. The rear gardens are a key feature of the house and not only very private but extend to well over 100ft, in the main laid to lawn. Within the garden is an extremely useful oak and cedar wood all year round dining/covered sitting room with open chimney breast, ideal for alfresco dining.
Internally, the property has been styled and designed with great flair and imagination with quality fitments throughout. Without doubt the key room is the huge double height and open plan living dining kitchen fitted with a bespoke range of hand painted cabinets with many integrated appliances open to a dining and living area with bi-fold doors opening onto the deck and rear gardens. There is a more formal living room to the front of the house and off the central hallway a cloakroom/wc, utility room and walk-in pantry. At first floor level there are three fine double bedrooms, the master is of a particularly good size and also features a walk-in dressing room and en-suite bathroom with wet room area. There is a further shower room and throughout decorations are in beautiful order.
Goostrey is a much sought after semi-rural village situated almost equidistant between the towns of Knutsford and Holmes Chapel and surrounded by delightful open countryside. Day to day requirements are met by the local shopping within the village whilst the larger towns of Knutsford and Holmes Chapel cater for more comprehensive needs. Excellent educational facilities are catered for in both the state and private sector with the primary school in the village having a good reputation. The rail station is on the main Manchester - Crewe - London line and access to the nearby Northwest motorway network is easily available at Holmes Chapel, junction 18 and Knutsford junction 19 of the M6. Manchester International Airport is also within easy reach. There are lovely country walks to be had on the property's doorstep and local beauty spots, in particular Shakeley Mere and in Knutsford Tatton Park. Leisure centres in the nearby towns cater for most sporting requirements and there are also a number of private sporting clubs including numerous notable golf courses within easy reach.
From Knutsford town centre travel south along the A50 in the direction of Holmes Chapel for about 6 miles turning left at the crossroads onto New Platt Lane in Cranage. Proceed to the end of New Platt Lane and just prior to reaching Main Road in Goostrey, Monkstone will be seen on your left.
