It was around fifty years ago when the barn, within which Anglestone House sits, was converted into two. The owners have remained in the property ever since, making this the first time this unique home has come onto the market. This remarkable house really does offer so much potential, all you need is a little imagination, especially with the wealth of views of the beautiful garden… but more about that later.
The paved driveway is in-keeping with the character of a barn conversion and is home to a garage, coal house and store. As there is ample parking, this set of outbuildings alone provides you with a wealth of options, including that much-needed space for working from home.
One of the best assets of this house is that comes with the land behind it. The path guides you through the garden, which is mainly lawned with a wealth of trees and shrubs. This is a children's paradise; you can imagine many a game of hide and seek played within the little dens that this landscape creates. And then you have the view; as you turn to look over the barn, you can see Lyme Cage in the distance.
Moving to the back of the house, from the elevated terrace you look down over an impressive mature garden, tree lined on one side with large lawns and interwoven beds. It is easy to imagine having a garden party and seeing the space filled with family and friends enjoying the serene environment. On the terrace is an old conservatory, but you may wish to add a more modern feature that will allow you to really soak up those garden views whatever the weather.
Through the back door to the left is a shower room and to the right is a utility with store, from which you enter the kitchen. This double aspect room is completely flooded with light and is home to a built-in pantry, a feature that is still loved by many a homeowner today. This is a great family kitchen, one where people will naturally congregate to chat, nibble and simply be, there is such warmth to this room that you can see why the owners used to spend a lot of time in here.
Moving through to the open-plan living space, the décor is retro in nature, but looking past that, this is a fantastic space which you can mould and shape into what would best suit you and your family.
The living space is an area used for dining, which then guides you into a snug of a space that you can picture being so cosy in the winter with a roaring fire. Also on the ground floor is a rear porch and the conservatory.
Up the central spiral staircase is the landing, complete with chaise longue and bookcase, this is one of those spaces that is so useful and could be made extremely special. Moving to the right is the dressing room for the main bedroom, which could be split to add an ensuite. The main bedroom is a great size and benefits from perfect views of that glorious garden – honestly, we are not kidding, you really need to see this garden in person.
To the left of the landing are two more bedrooms, one with its own balcony that looks over the garden. It would be hard not to fall in love with this room – light and charming, just think how perfect it would be to relax on your balcony on a warm evening, watching the sun setting with a good book. Every day would feel like you were on holiday.
The garden backs onto Pinfold Lane in Romiley, which is a short walk from the centre of Romiley and everything the town has to offer, whether you want to pick up a new outfit from Susie's Boutique or grab a delicious coffee and treat from No29. We are blessed here with a wealth of countryside walks, trails, and parks, should you enjoy running, cycling or just a lovely walk with your dog. Location wise, it is ideal should you need to commute to Manchester, which is approximately 30 minutes away by train with Manchester Airport around a 25-minute drive.
This is a home that has been cherished by its owners, who have now sadly passed, and it is looking for a family to give it a new lease of life. If you are looking for a home with a wealth of mature outdoor space and are eager to transform a character-filled property into your home, you need to come and take a look.
