FULL ADDRESS - Oakdene, Town Lane, Mobberley, Knutsford, WA16 7EP

On the edge of the popular Cheshire village of Mobberley, nestled between Knutsford and Wilmslow, with great commuter rail links on the Manchester to Chester line, discover the hidden delights of Oakdene.

Sought-after location
Fringed by open fields and only a short walk from the local shops and pubs, this semi-rural setting is the perfect backdrop for Oakdene. Clad in innovative cream K-Rend, this former bungalow has been elevated to a spacious four-bedroom family home. Set upon the site of a former orchard, mature trees, including oak, Scots pine, lime and ash, give the home a ‘cottage in the woods’ allure upon arrival through the five-bar wooden gates.

Ample parking is available for four cars on the spacious driveway, which could easily be extended around the side if required. A single garage, currently used for storage, could also house a vehicle.

Utterly transformed over the last 25 years by its current owners, Oakdene has been renovated and redesigned to afford the ultimate in modern family living.

A home with flow
Make your way indoors, into the entrance hall where the scale and scope of this home become apparent. Light and bright, contemporary, muted tones pervade throughout the home. Dressed in solid oak flooring and Farrow & Ball’s Elephant’s Breath, the entrance hall sets the scene for a soothing, pared back, ambience, felt in every area of Oakdene.

Open the door on the left and step into the sitting room, where shades of Cornforth White from Farrow & Ball present a subtle grey hue to the walls. Light streams in through large windows to either side of the limestone fireplace. Inset within the fireplace, a cast iron surround encases an open fire, nestled upon a granite hearth, adding warmth and welcome to the room. Carpeted underfoot in cream, oak and glass pocket doors to the right slide open to connect this space with the large, open-plan family-dining-kitchen, which runs almost the entire width of the home to the rear.

OWNER QUOTE: “I like the versatility of the home. It can be quite open-plan but by closing doors it can become more discreet.”

Engineered oak flooring runs throughout the kitchen, as light enters abundantly from several sides. Ahead, a lounge area precedes French doors, opening out to the decking; the perfect place to pause after dinner, enjoying relaxing views out to the garden.

Sociable spaces
A sociable space, ergonomically designed for ease of use, a dining area leads on to the kitchen, where a breakfast bar offers the perfect place to perch and converse with the chef over a glass of wine. Rinse the glasses on the central island, with views out over the garden. Currently housing a freestanding fridge-freezer, dishwasher, microwave, Range cooker and extractor hood, dine indoors or open the second set of patio doors and feast alfresco, enjoying summer barbecues on the decking. There is direct access from here to a rear hall.

A practical area, tucked off this hall discover a cloakroom for coats and boots, next to a handy downstairs WC with wash basin, dressed in the grounding, down to earth tones of Farrow & Ball’s De Nimes. With access to the integral garage available from the rear hall, there is also a utility room, plumbed for washer and dryer and primed with wastewater pipe and hot and cold water for the introduction of a sink. With direct access from here to the garden, this rear lobby makes an ideal boot room entrance when returning home from muddy walks with the dog.

Versatile places
Returning from the kitchen directly into the entrance hall, sneak a peek through the door beneath the stairs on the left, into a second sitting room. Currently serving as a home office, this versatile room could work well as a snug lounge, playroom or in its original function as a downstairs bedroom.

From the entrance hall, ascend the stairs to the light, bright landing, turning left to discover the first of four spacious double bedrooms.

OWNER QUOTE: “The bedrooms are large by design. We had the roof taken up and the walls reconfigured to ensure they were all spacious bedrooms.”

Pale grey tones to the walls complement the cream carpet underfoot, in a spacious double bedroom where the slope of the roofline adds a comforting cottage intimacy. Leafy views greet you from the window.

Bedtime beckons
Next door a rich purple feature wall adds personality to a second double bedroom, where a wall of fitted wardrobes, illuminated by downlighting provides a profusion of storage for all your clothes.

Arrive next at a third sumptuously sized bedroom, where cream carpet complements latte toned walls. Spacious enough to accommodate a double bed, office table and chair, this room looks out towards the mature trees in the rear garden.

Turning left, across the way, refreshment awaits in the family bathroom, where underfloor heating prevails underfoot. A spacious room, tiled in buff tones, a large, walk-in shower accompanies a centrally filling bathtub, wash basin and WC.

At the end of the landing, discover the principal suite. Spacious and soothingly decorated in café au lait tones with a feature wall, a wall of wardrobes offers ample storage, whilst garden views entreat through the large window.

Refresh your senses in the private ensuite, with spa bath, separate shower, wash basin and WC.

Shelter and shade
Outside, the beautifully maintained garden adds another pleasing element to this home. Safe and secure for children and pets, the fencing to two sides was redone just this year. Step out onto the decking to soak up the sunshine and enjoy summer barbecues. Two levels of lawn are permeated with mature planting, shrubs and flowers – a sight to behold in springtime, laden first with snowdrops and later with bluebells.

Mature trees including Scots pines, ash and lime trees provide privacy and calm in the garden. Although north facing, the height of this home, with no overshadowing neighbours means the garden enjoys sunshine throughout the day.

Note the fully insulated cabin. Furnished with lighting and power sockets, this additional room was designed to serve as a gym or home office, adding another layer of flexibility to this spacious home.
