This west Macclesfield home is a stunning, escape to the country, and back in history as well, but also has modern features ready for 21st century living.

At the start of the long and winding Pexhill Road, you will find this characterful period feature property.

The just-come-to-market home has a whopping five bathrooms, three bedrooms, and five reception rooms.

The gorgeous house is on the market for £525,000.

Holden and Prescott Macclesfield spoke to Macclesfield Nub News about the Broken Cross home.

"There are certain eras throughout history that have architectural appeal," they said.

"In years to come it is unlikely that future generations will reflect with affection on what was produced in the 1960's and 1970's but at the opposite end of the scale is the Georgian era, and in this unique three-storey dwelling we have a superb example.

"The rather paradoxically named Grade II-listed 'Red House' dates from 1750 and provides a splendid home that displays much of, to coin, a much-laboured phrase in estate agency, 'character and charm'.

"It provides a wonderful expanse of accommodation that has tremendous versatility and that enables the layout to be adapted to suit the changes of today's family/home working conditions.

"It is a substantial property providing highly flexible accommodation, which includes 10 rooms laid out over three floors.

"In addition, there is the vaulted cellar with two chambers and a store room. 

"There is gas-fired central heating and exposed beams, and a delightful atmosphere throughout, contributed to in no small way by various original features, including, the beautiful oak panelling in the hallway.

"To the rear, there is a delightful garden which is very much in keeping with the property itself.

"Within fenced, hedged and walled borders, which provide a high degree of privacy, there is a lawn, patio, mature trees, and well-stocked borders. From the rear boundary, there is access to a detached double garage and a drive that exits onto Chelford Road."

Period features of the property include a cast iron tiled fireplace in the living room, carved oak panelling, dado rail, and a beamed ceiling. Some of the bedrooms also have their own fireplaces.

Other characterful features include a traditional high flush toilet, a turned oak spindle balustrade on the landing, and a two timber garden sheds.

As well as having lots of bedrooms, the home's geography is also a great factor when hosting guests, and you are just a stone's throw from Capesthorne Hall. You are also surrounded by greenery.

The nearest pub is The Pack Horse, shortly followed by The Bulls Head. Plus there are some top quality gastropubs in nearby Henbury with The Blacksmith Arms and The Cock Inn. Your nearest food shop is Tesco.
