Carter Bench House, Clarence Road, Bollington, Macclesfield, Cheshire
An immaculately presented spacious first floor two bedroom apartment within a converted Grade II listed Edwardian manor house formerly known as Rock Bank House. Carter Bench House was originally built around the 1840s for the Swindells family and was used as a hospital during both World War I and II followed by a toy factory in more recent times. The apartment is situated yards from Clarence Mill and the canal and also benefits from views to White Nancy. Carter Bench House has retained many original features, being built out of Ashlar buff sandstone, with a Welsh slate roof and five stone chimneys. Internally there is a Tudor panelled ceiling with facial and foliage bosses in the main hallway. Internally, this first floor apartment has a "U" shaped inner hallway leading off to extremely spacious two reception rooms, two bedrooms, dressing area, bathroom, en-suite and a modern kitchen. The property is very modern but still with an abundance of historical features with ornate ceilings and windows. The property has full electric heating as well as designated parking for two vehicles, visitor parking and a communal courtyard to the rear side of Carter Bench House. This property would ideally suit young professionals or a retired couple who are looking for good quality standard of living with spacious accommodation situated within the heart of Bollington yet nestled away in a cul-de-sac location.
