Perfectly situated on the edge of St John's Road Conservation Area this fine Edwardian semi detached property stands on a larger than average corner plot and is just a stone's throw from the town centre and good schools. The red brick elevations are relieved to the upper gable by black and white mock Tudor woodwork with many original features retained. Unusually this property is particularly bright and airy and the accommodation has been extensively refurbished and provides excellent family accommodation arranged over three floors. The gardens wrap around the property and in the main have been laid to open plan lawned areas retained by ornamental walls and mature trees. Off Hayton Street, an electrically operated gated driveway provides off road parking for several vehicles with a car port and brick garage.
The property is within a short flat walk of the cosmopolitan town of Knutsford, an old market town rich in heritage and brimming with a variety of architectural features, particularly those built in an Italianate Tuscan style by the famous local architect, Richard Harding Watt. Linked by a web of ginnels, cobbles and courtyards, the two main streets are home to a variety of shops ranging from boutiques to antique shops, purveyors of fine wines and chocolate to art galleries and interior design specialists. There are however, a few familiar sites of larger multiple retail supermarket outlets, including Booths and Boots. Evenings in Knutsford are very lively with many fine wine bars, pubs and restaurants catering for most tastes. For the outdoor enthusiast, Knutsford borders some of Cheshire's most beautiful countryside and has the famous Tatton Park Country Estate on its doorstep with its Regency mansion, glorious gardens, traditional farm and medieval old hall. The town centre offers Leisure Centre facilities as well as numerous private sporting clubs and notable golf courses within easy reach. For the commuter, access to the nearby North West motorway network is readily available, as is Manchester International Airport and the rail station has links to Chester and Manchester. Excellent education facilities cater for children of most ages in both the state and private sectors.
From the roundabout in Canute Square travel along King Edward Road (A50) turning right at the traffic lights with the station on your left. Turn right onto Stanley Road taking the second left onto St John's Road and follow the road round to the right where the property will then be seen half way down the road on your left on the corner of Hayton Street.
