SUMMARY Exciting proposition to own your own piece of stunning Cheshire countryside with breathtaking views across the Cheshire plain. Congleton Edge is a short drive from Congleton town yet you feel like you are in the middle of the countryside with unspoiled views and rolling fields all around. The stunning detached family residence boasts a large wrap around orangery, kitchen breakfast room, three reception rooms, utility room, cloakroom, four double bedrooms, two of which having en-suite bathrooms and a family bathroom. In addition there is a large outbuilding/studio, three purpose built timber cladded pods and rotunda which makes an ideal office. The property is set in over 14 acres with an orchard, large pond, mature gardens, several fenced paddocks and 6 stables. Heather Bank Farm is also known locally as Blissland which was established in 2011 and as its present guardians will testify the unique eclectic energy is absolutely delightful. They believe passionately in the huge benefits of winning in love and living an enriched life of bliss. They also wanted to create a community where positive people could share their collective wisdom for the pursuit of happiness.

The outbuildings and pods are used for many events including life transformational classes, coaching workshops and weekend retreats. In 2013 it was discovered that the farm is on the same Ley line as Stone henge which is believed to give the land spiritual significance and place of power. With scope for modernisation and further development, this property lends itself to the discerning entrepreneur whilst also providing impressive, versatile family accommodation.

Whilst it currently thrives as a sacred centre for inner peace, it could also be easily altered to create an array of alternative choices or potential business ventures. Equestrian pursuits or nature enhancing retreat centre possibilities abound in this quirky, characterful property that has been created over many years of careful management. Please see the website for more information.
