Our top properties to put a ‘Spring’ in your step

With Easter firmly behind us, but two bank holidays looming ahead it can only mean one thing – Spring is definitely here.  The weather might not always show it, but the properties that are coming on the market are certainly reflecting this busy time of year for property buyers in Cheshire.

Here’s just a small selection of some of the properties that are sure to put a spring in your step if you’re house-hunting.

Hough House, Cheshire

 

It’s not often you get two for the price of one. But these two recently constructed and renovated detached country houses offer a combined total floor area of approx. 4409 sq ft, together with a new triple garage block traditional outbuilding and land extending to nearly 10 acres.

The two properties offer completely independent living, and are ideal if you need a granny or in-law annexe within close proximity.

With 9.671 acres of gardens, grounds & paddocks, this property would be an absolute dream for equestrian lovers.

Well Meadow, Common Lane, Kelsall

 

Approached by a long sweeping driveway, Well Meadow is a superbly crafted barn conversion offering four generously proportioned bedrooms.

Stretton Lower Hall, Malpas

 

One of Cheshire’s finest properties and steeped in history too. Stretton Lower Hall is a Grade II listed building which dates as far back as Charles II.

Rich in period features, the property provides excellent family accommodation on three floors and has an adjoining 3 bedroomed cottage with independent access plus a residential barn conversion with a one bedroom open plan apartment.

The Hall’s gardens too are a talking point on viewings, with a 2 acre paddock, an orchard which extend to 2.82 acres.

At £1,600,000, this property is certainly worth an early viewing.

Bluebell Cottage, Delamere

 

As far as location goes, this property is difficult to better. Approached via a stunningly beautiful tree lined driveway, the location belies an exceptional convenience close to road, rail and airline links to key commercial centres.

The property’s external appearance somewhat disguises the hugely impressive proportions and layout that is found inside. The current owners have maintained the property in a fantastic condition, having recently replaced the main family bathroom, en suite to the master bedroom and fitted a new kitchen designed and installed by Messrs Panarama Kitchens of Liverpool.

The gardens are just as much a delight, especially at this time of year, boasting vibrant colour, maturity, beauty and privacy.

Be prepared to be WOWED by these two brand new spectacular 5 bedroom detached houses offering 3,200 sq. ft. of high specification throughout. They’re estimated to be completed by September 2019, but hurry, interest is high, and the Developer is offering early bird incentives for those who are in a good position to move.

4 Reasons why London Homebuyers want to move to Cheshire

Cheshire is the home to open landscapes and rich heritage. The county boasts some of the quaintest towns and villages in the country. And with major cities a mere stone’s throw away, it’s no wonder more and more London homebuyers are eyeing up the move up north. The delights of Cheshire haven’t gone unnoticed. In fact, regular polls in national titles prove it’s one of the most desirable places to live in the country.

And we agree. So we’ve pulled together the top four reasons why London home-hunters choose to buy a home in Cheshire:

  1. The Northern Powerhouse Strategy

 The Northern Powerhouse strategy has big plans for the North of England and Wales. It has ambitions to make Manchester the next big city in the UK. They are doing this by connecting northern cities, towns and rural areas, creating a powerhouse for the local economy. As part of the plan, Cheshire homeowners now enjoy increased investment and a more fruitful style of governance.

They benefit from improved transport links, enhanced business support and trade opportunities. Also, an improvement in education level also forms a major part of the plan.

  1. Work or Play: Visit Media City

 Living in Cheshire, you’re never too far away from world-renowned brands like ITV, BBC, and Kellog’s. They all live in the hub of Media City, near Manchester. On the grassy banks of the Manchester ship canal, you’ll find career opportunities and entertaining events. And there’s a great range of shops and restaurants too, perfect for a fun-fuelled day out with the family!

  1. Access to Liverpool, Manchester & Chester

 There are short commuting distances to major cities like Manchester, Liverpool and Chester. If you want to buy a home in Cheshire, a notable benefit is how central you’ll be of all three.

Whether by car, train or bus, you’ll find getting around a seamless and picturesque chore. And even in the most rural areas, you can be in any of the three cities within the hour!

  1. Easily hop from your Cheshire hotspot to London

 Living in Cheshire allows you to enjoy an enchanting family lifestyle, without being too far away from London. With train journeys of less than 2 hours from Crewe, it’s a straightforward journey.

With Crewe Railway Station on your doorstep, you’re never too far away to board train journeys throughout the country.

‘Victoriana’ reigns supreme at Wright Marshall’s Spring Boutique Sale

Our Spring Boutique Sale of 2019 proved to be a huge success for both buyers and vendors, with our vendors achieving fantastic prices for their lots and buyers bidding on an array of rare and sought-after pieces. The jewellery section of the sale boasted a range of truly spectacular antique jewellery which triggered some fierce bidding from our local and international clients.

Consigned from a family in Wales, a beautiful mid Victorian cased suite of amethyst and diamond jewellery was one of our star lots. Comprising an exquisite amethyst and diamond cross pendant, with matching drop earrings in a wonderful fitted case, this lot exuded opulence and style, selling for £4,010.

Further antique lots to sell brilliantly included an early Victorian foil back topaz rivière necklace. Dated to circa 1840, this pretty pink and highly collectable necklace reached a hammer price of £4,000.

A Victorian paste ‘Giardinetti’ ring in a beautiful delicate design was fished out of a box of costume jewellery consigned to our Beeston saleroom and sold for £1,550. Named after the Italian for ‘little garden,’ this popular style of dress ring displayed asymmetric colourful designs of floral bouquets and baskets.

One further fantastic Victorian jewel to sell was lot 20, a cheeky diamond snake, or ouroboros, ring. This particular ring had an articulated tongue detail, ensuring that the snake hissed alongside the movement of the wearer. With a particular charm and inspired by Queen Victoria’s engagement ring of a similar design symbolising eternal love through the motif of a coiled snake, this lot sold for £440.

Other lots to soar included a rare stainless steel Rolex Submariner wristwatch, with black dial and green bezel known as a ‘Kermit’ watch, sporting a desirable ‘flat four’ font. This particular colour combination and font denotes manufacture before 2003 and is particularly collectable. The watch attracted international interest and the hammer fell at £7,750.

Other stunning watches that won the interest of bidders was a rare stainless steel Zenith El Primero Espada selling for £2,900, and a stylish stainless steel Jaeger Le Coultre ‘Reverso Grande Date’ wristwatch that sold for £2,500.

Our next Boutique Sale takes place on Saturday 20th July, for further information on any of our lots or how to consign your items, contact Liz Bailey at lizbailey@wrightmarshall.co.uk or 01565 653284
