Marton Lane, Gawsworth

Guide price

Bedrooms: 3

An attractive semi-detached house which is located on one of the most sought after country lanes in the Macclesfield area. The property has been extended over the years and stands within grounds that extend to 1.47 acres and has for many a year, been successfully operating as a horticultural Nursery known as Gawsworth Nursery and so the majority of the acreage is occupied by buildings relating to that business. The buildings would benefit from some repair and updating generally. The property forms an ideal subject for those just looking for a rural property, with land, assuming of course, that the buildings are removed. The property benefits from oil fired central heating together with uPVC double glazing, the extensions that have been done now provide a superbly proportioned family home that features three large separate Reception Rooms, together with a substantial Kitchen and adjoining Utility Room, the ground floor also offers a spacious Bathroom, whilst upstairs, are three Bedrooms, the superbly proportioned main one having the benefit of an en-suite Shower Room. All bedrooms have fitted wardrobes, and buyers may well decide to consider the feasibility of re-configuring the first floor accommodation to create a Bathroom, thereby releasing the existing ground floor Bathroom for use as a Study or similar. Outside, there is a substantial floodlit Yard/Car Park area, together with two Cropley glass houses, both of which are heated, irrigated, and have electricity installed, but beyond that, there are eleven polytunnels, up to 95´ in length, which have in the past also been heated and have electric light and irrigation. There is also a large timber framed Outbuilding and attached lean-to Store.
