Property Description

On Behalf of Hinchliffe Holmes

Four Bedroom Detached House

Downdale House is a period 4 bedroomed detached rural Cheshire home and is an exceptionally rare find in today's market of reducing plot sizes and increasing neighbour proximity. It is currently brought to the market by SDL via an online auction in conjunction with Hinchliffe Holmes.

Nestling in an enviable elevated rural South facing location on the western edge of Delamere Forest Park adjacent to the Sandstone Trail and Nettleford Wood this 0.43 acre stone and brick property looks over the green rolling hills and wooded ridge of the valley beyond. Encircled by mature specimen trees shrubs and hedging the property enjoys a high degree of privacy and is also a haven for wildlife with green woodpeckers, pheasants and foxes routinely appearing in the garden.

The house itself whilst requiring renovation and modernisation throughout is essentially a blank canvas for that buyer wishing to create their own unique bespoke home in an outstandingly beautiful location.
