Old Bridge House bears a date stone of 1667 albeit over the years the property has been carefully and sympathetically extended to provide modern day living in a most attractive detached country cottage. The gated cobbled driveway provides ample parking and access to the detached triple garage block with a useful hobbies room over. Delightful and beautifully landscaped formal grounds extend to the rear to approximately an acre in size and complete with an outdoor covered heated swimming pool. There is an adjacent field, ideal for those with equine interests with its own gated access from the road; in all about 5 acres.
The semi rural hamlet of Allostock is situated next door to the village of Lower Peover and whilst in the country, is by no means isolated. There are excellent road connections into the nearby town centres of Knutsford and Holmes Chapel whilst most commercial cities in the North West are easily accessed by the M6 and M56 motorway networks. Manchester International Airport is also close by. The rail stations of Knutsford and Holmes Chapel provide commuter links to Manchester. Opposite the property is Shakeley Mere, a local beauty spot, providing lovely country walks. For the sportsperson there are leisure centres in the nearby towns, along with private sporting clubs and notable golf courses all within easy reach. Lower Peover primary school, state high schools and independent education is all available within easy reach.
From Knutsford town centre proceed south along the A50 in the direction of Holmes Chapel. Travel through Toft and continue passing The Whipping Stocks public house and then Mangoletsi Alfa Romeo dealership on your left. After approx. 4.5 miles in total Old Bridge House will been seen on your right prior to reaching the garden centre in Allostock.

Energy Efficiency Rating
Old Bridge House is approached over a cobbled gated driveway which provides an ample parking turning area with access to the detached triple garage with hobbies room over. Formal landscaped grounds surround the property and particularly to the rear and we believe extends to just under an acre bordering and overlooking open countryside. At the bottom of the garden lies a super enclosed enclosed swimming pool with summer house, ideal for changing rooms. There is also a large ornamental pond, gated access from the bottom of the garden then leads to the adjacent field which also has further access from London Road and would be ideal for those with equine interests. The field is totally enclosed with mature hedging and some trees and also enjoys a similar open outlook where we believe loose boxes could be erected with minimal difficulty.
