Characterful setting
Pull off the lane, populated by an impressive selection of distinguished homes, through the secure electric gates and along the lengthy driveway, where guard of honour of spring daffodils and seasonal planting heralds your arrival home.

Stable Mews, home to three handsome and unique homes, retaining a number of characteristics from their original purpose, once served the local manor house as accommodation for horses. Peaceful and rural, yet so convenient for shops, schools and transport links, park up on the substantial driveway and take a tour of this impressive home.

Parking is also available within two, separate double garages. Commissioned by the current custodians, the newly built oak gable double garage with its equine themed weathervane pays homage to the stable origins of the home

Light-filled living
Make your way to the front door of The Smithy, with its bespoke stained-glass feature, stepping through to the broad and bright entrance hall. A light and airy atrium, chandelier lighting spills down on the large, grey-white tiles, whilst garden views greet you ahead, easily accessed through a door.

OWNER QUOTE: “We had the wall taken down to allow access straight into the garden.”

A home with great flow, make your way through to the living-dining room on the right. A characterful, well-lit room, light pours in through windows to three side, with views to the front, side and rear via glazed doors sliding open to the conservatory. Dine at the large table overlooking the leafy garden to the front.

Homely and inviting, spacious yet intimate, treacle-toned beams crisscross the ceiling whilst warmth emanates from within a handsome herringbone brick-backed fireplace inset with a wood-burning stove. Engineered oak flooring extends underfoot. Cosy in wintertime, nestled on the sofa in front of the fire, this is an all-season room, where the conservatory beckons you through in the summertime with its impressive garden views.

Follow the flow
The embodiment of indoor-outdoor living, the conservatory bridges both spaces; the ultimate garden room offering direct access out to the sunny, landscaped garden and its various seating areas.

Returning to the entrance hall, turning left, take a short series of steps down into an inner hallway, off which could be a fourth bedroom. Currently serving as a study, modern spotlighting is minimal overhead, whilst a window provides views over the lush garden. Ideal for those working from home, this room could easily serve as an accessible ground floor bedroom when required.

Make your way through to the dining kitchen. Originally two rooms, opened up into one vast, sociable space, the dining-kitchen is an entertaining haven.

OWNER QUOTE: “It’s a large kitchen, we all congregate in here. It’s a party home.”

Entertaining haven
Italian tiling continues through from the entrance hallway, gleaming beneath the spotlighting. A series of rectangular windows provide enticing views of the garden, framing tempting scenes of the unbroken greenery, to be enjoyed at leisure from the bespoke-designed window seat with storage drawers beneath.

A sociable hub, surround sound aids the entertainment as you serve up a feast, courtesy of an array of top of the range appliances (less than six months old) including Neff induction hob with Siemens extractor hood and a Neff oven and microwave stack. There is also space for a Samsung American style fridge-freezer with water dispenser. An abundance of solid wood cupboards and drawers provide plenty of storage.

OWNER QUOTE: “I love the spacious openness with the sun coming through – it’s so good for entertaining.”

Future-proofed design
Tucked off from the kitchen discover a cleverly furnished space, where the functionality of a utility room meets the convenience of a shower room. A corner of fitted units continue the motif of storage from the kitchen, accommodating a supplemental sink with grooved drainage within the granite worktops, with plumbing for a washer-dryer. Future proofed for ‘forever home’ versatility of living, there is also a shower cubicle, wash basin and WC providing flexibility and accessibility. Perfect for use after emerging from the hot tub…

From the kitchen, take the oak and glass stairs up to the first-floor landing, your way guided by automatic low-level lighting.

Refresh and revive in the main bathroom, directly ahead. Warmed by underfloor heating, this tiled bathroom features a walk-in wet room shower with glass doors for a spa-feel, alongside a separate Villeroy & Boch bath, floating wash basin and WC.

Turning right out of this bathroom, arrive at the master suite. Carpeted in plush grey, skylight windows, fitted with blinds, draw down the starlight for a soothing bedtime experience. A window to the rear captures views out over the garden.

Soak and sleep
Freshen up in the ensuite, fully tiled for a luxurious feel and furnished with wall-mounted wash basin, WC and rainfall shower.

Next door, arrive at the second bedroom, where pale grey and blue tones add a calming ambience. Views extend to the countryside, whilst within, a selection of Ducal drawers, wardrobe, bed and bedside cabinets emphasises the spaciousness of the room.

Continue on to arrive at the third bedroom, currently accommodating twin beds and featuring oak fitted wardrobes. Set beneath the curve of the roofline, this bedroom provides access via dropdown ladders to the fully boarded attic above. Running the entire depth and breadth of the home, this room has previously been used as an office, and is a storage dream. Dimmable lighting features throughout the home.

Sunshine, shelter and shade
The property boasts an inner walled garden an outside garden on the side of the drive and finally a secret garden to the rear of the property behind the oak beam double garage.

Outside, step into the enclosed shelter, sunshine and shade of the walled garden. Large stone slabs extend beyond the conservatory providing a large patio upon which to recline and relax. To one corner, garden furniture offers a place in which to dine alfresco; one of a number of opportunities to sit and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the garden.

Stepping down from the patio a paved path leads along the lawned garden, passing a bistro table and chairs onto a further patio which also leads to the rear of the double garage, on the right had side is a Hot Tub housed in a special built gazebo, allowing you to soothe your senses in the bubbles.

At the rear of the new oak garages, discover the secret garden with its unique Summer House where you can relax in the garden surrounded by an abundance of wild garden flowers, where views extend over the fields creating your own patch of paradise.

A garden perfect for families, the old oak tree provides shelter and shade for all.

Countryside and convenience
Across the way, walk into Blakemere Village to browse the parade of independent shops. A most conveniently located home, The Smithy is within easy reach of the local shop, butcher, newsagent, chemist, hairdresser, library and bus route.

Families are perfectly placed, within easy reach of schools in both Cuddington and Sandiway. Independent schooling is available at The Grange in Hartford whilst the specialist Greenbank School is also nearby.

Walk down Chester Road to the Blue Cap, a family-friendly pub serving up traditional British fayre. Continue along to the Blue Bridge, and enjoy walks along the River Weaver, as the canoeists paddle by. The river is only around a 15-minute walk away.

For a wider selection of shops and restaurants both Davenham and Northwich are close by, with Sandiway Golf Club only a swing away along Chester Road.

Perfectly placed for commuting, drive to Manchester Airport within 30 minutes. Cuddington and Hartford train stations offer great rail links into Liverpool and Manchester for an evening at the theatre, whilst nearby Northwich has its own cinema.

A flexible home, with unique character, enveloping gardens which are an entertaining haven, and a futureproofed design, The Smithy is ideal as a family home, home for a professional couple or those looking to sit back and enjoy the laidback pace of countryside living.

Enjoy the best of both worlds, in an idyllic, exclusive setting, at The Smithy, where the peace of the countryside comes replete with the convenience and connectivity of the town.
