Behind the façade of this beautiful, charming cottage, there are some fabulous hidden gems just waiting to be discovered. Rarely do these cottages enter the market. Take a look, you won’t be disappointed!
This stunning home is located within the popular and most desirable Chadkirk Country Estate and conservation area, in an idyllic setting on a quiet lane where rush hour is represented only by a group of Sunday walkers! Yet, within a few minutes’ walk from the property, you have access to all the amenities of Romiley village.
20 Chadkirk Road is positioned next to a small holding, with the peak forest canal to the front and adjacent to woodland at the rear.
There are not many places you can live alongside the sounds of nature in such an idyllic countryside setting, so close to the convenience and hustle and bustle of a vibrant village centre.
This cottage is extremely well presented retaining much charm and character from its many original period and reproduction features. Being two storeys to the front and three storeys at the rear, plus having a useful attic storage room in the roof space, flexible configurations are possible. Currently, both the lower ground floor and ground floor are used as living areas. There is even a first-floor balcony, positioned above the rear garden room, which overlooks the south facing rear garden, the woodland beyond and a detached brick garage.
Take the formal entrance across the enclosed, brick paved cottage garden into the glazed entrance porch with a pitched roof. An ideal place to discard your coats, shoes and boots. From the entrance porch you cross the threshold through a period stain glass front door, as you enter a formal Victorian styled lounge.
The lounge is a spacious open-plan room extending the entire front to back footprint of the cottage, terminating at glazed doors leading out and onto a delightful south facing rear balcony. This bright dual aspect room has soft tone décor, engineered timber flooring, ceiling mouldings, cornices, picture rails and two feature fireplaces, one with a working log burner. The room is currently arranged in two parts, which is a great entertaining space or space to relax and watch the television. There is the flexibility to incorporate a formal dining area, separate seating areas or other uses, as preferred.
Glazed doors lead out onto the rear balcony, perfect for relaxing in the afternoon or evening sun with space for a couple chairs and bistro table.
Lower Ground Floor
In contrast to the formal ground floor living room, is a rustic ‘Country Kitchen’ that dominates the lower ground floor with low ceiling beamed ceilings, thick painted exposed brick walls, tiled flooring, and a focal fireplace with log burner. This is the perfect place for the family gatherings to cook, eat in the dining area and relax in the cosy snug seating around the real fire.
The kitchen is a clever design of being both practical with modern conveniences yet achieving that rustic country kitchen ambiance. Hand painted cupboards, timber worktop surfaces, a central kitchen island unit and a fabulous bottle green coloured gas cooker range cooker inset within the original fireplace, completes the country kitchen design. Currently the room is set out with family sized kitchen table and soft seating alongside the log burner fire.
The kitchen can be accessed from lounge via an enclosed staircase or from outside, through the rear garden room. The rear entrance is through a timber stable door leading to a small garden room, an ideal place for a peaceful rest or a quiet read. There is also a separate guest WC.
The first-floor landing provides access to all rooms.
The bathroom is to the front of the cottage with a freestanding roll top bath centrally positioned as a feature to this room. A high-level WC, a timber vanity wash hand basin and a separate recessed shower cubicle makes up the four-piece suite.
The master bedroom to the rear has a build in wardrobe and a recess ideal for further bedroom furniture and wardrobes.
A second double sized bedroom is to the front of the property.
An access ladder from the second bedroom, provides access to the loft area. This attic room is fitted out as room with a Velux roof window and currently used as a home office and storage area. The ceiling height in the attic room, at the highest point, is approximately 1.92m. Potential purchasers may wish to consider enhancing the access to this area.
