Cuerdon Drive, Thelwall
A simply stunning family residence nestling in 1.5 acres of formal gardens and grounds offering extensive living accommodation including a wonderful leisure complex (potential for conversion to further accommodation) swimming pool and tennis court and cinema room.
SUMMARY This hidden gem is located within the village of Thelwall on the border of Grappenhall. Stockton Heath and Lymm are both a short drive away. In a tucked away location the main cottage has been heavily extended over the years to create a magnificent family home with all the modern luxuries you would expect from a property of this calibre. The original 'Cuerdon Cottage' dates back to the late 1800's and some of the original features can still be seen in the house.
The property sits on a superb large plot of approx 1.5 acres with extensive landscaped gardens, pond, leisure complex including swimming pool, sauna, fully equipped bar, entertaining rooms and tennis court. The main house briefly comprises of a splendid large reception hall, study, utility room, downstairs WC, snug, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room and lounge. To the first floor there is a spacious landing, master bedroom with en-suite, bedroom two with en-suite to front, three further double bedrooms and family bathroom. To the front of the plot there is a double garage and parking for several cars either side of the garage. The property has retained some period features including high ceilings, beams and original doors upstairs. There is ceiling cornicing throughout most of the reception space and unusually wide galleried landing gives a real feeling of space and an abundance of natural light.
As you approach the property from Cuerdon Drive there is a further three double bedroomed property (1165 sq ft) which is available under separate negotiation. This was only completed 12 months ago. It is currently being rented out for £1,500 per calendar month by an assured short hold tenancy.
