Over Peover Estate In 28 Acres


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5

A delightful country house at the end of two, long tree lined driveways, set within the most idyllic 28 acre grounds in one of the most sought after locations in Cheshire, together with planning consent to completely redevelop and transform the site, to create a magnificent bespoke estate, with a large Georgian style house and extensive additional outbuildings.

Over Peover is one of North Cheshire's most sought-after villages, situated in stunning rural countryside, between Knutsford and Alderley Edge, and is home to some of the county's foremost country homes.

Chaseley is a superb family house in the most beautiful surrounding and very private grounds, located on a quiet country lane, and is one of the few remaining landed private development opportunities in this area. It comes complete with a superb detailed planning permission to demolish the house and redevelop entirely, to create a wonderful small country estate, centrally situated in its grounds, and set well back from the lane with twin tree lined driveways.

The existing house and buildings are attractive, constructed in a cottage style, and today require general updating and enlargement if they were to appeal to most buyers in this sector, but the hard-fought planning consent gives certainty to an incoming purchaser, safe in the knowledge that they can build their dream home without further planning restrictions.

The setting is truly magnificent, situated on the edge of the village, well within walking distance of the fabulously popular, Dog Inn. The house has a huge front garden adorned with beautiful mature trees and is well screened from the road with twin tree lined driveways, and the formal grounds extend to the front, side and rear of the house, the land sloping away at the rear to some lower level outbuildings, stabling and the ménage.

The fields provide the most delightful private setting, undulating and separated into several large enclosures with woodland on one side and the Peover Eye river at the end of the site adjacent to some lovely private meadow areas ideal for picnics or camping.

The house and land would suit those with serious equestrian interests or perhaps for a family who wish to simply own their own extensive private grounds, which provide great privacy and seclusion.

Planning consent was granted, the last application in 2018, to replace the existing house with a large new property in the Georgian style which in all extends to over 11,500 sq ft in the main house. The accommodation as planned is set out over four floors with rooms of fantastic proportions and includes an indoor leisure complex.

In addition to the house there is planning for extensive garaging and also a single storey detached outbuilding, a further 3000 square feet in all, providing the opportunity to create either a games facility or guest house, and a second, outdoor swimming pool.
