House for sale

Now Johnny getting bigger, is a master crawler, and on the cusp of the brink of walking, our house has become very small of a sudden. So, with much regret we have put it on the market. When we moved here almost 3 years ago it was quite a jump from the city centre - bullfinches, nuthatches and badgers instead of violent drunks, and barges instead of buses. Now we can't imagine living anywhere else, so we certainly won't be moving far. 4 doors down if all goes to plan.
This is why it's so amazing:
  • no through traffic - on a dead end rough track off a private cobbled road.
  • Peak Forest Canal right at the back - one of the networks prettiest. Towpath newly upgraded as a national wheelchair route.
  • Quiet - apart from the odd goose honk.
  • 2 minutes walk from Furness Vale station, from where you are 20 minutes from Buxton and about 40 from Manchester.
  • 20 minute walk to Whaley Bridge (The Shepherds, Memories of India, Tescos) or New Mills (High St Books, Bryans butchers, Potts Bakers and the Swizzells Matlow sweet factory).
  • Within 15/20 minutes drive- the Goyt Valley, Chapel en-le Frith, Chinley, Glossop, Disley, Lyme Park, Macclesfield, Hayfield and all the beautiful High Peak.
  • Furness itself has a little shop, Post Office, brand new chippy, social club, Soldier Dick (for sale) and The Crossings - excellent community pub.
  • animals I've seen since being here - ducks, moorhens, geese, herons, kingfishers, nuthatches, bullfinches, wrens, goldfinches, blue tits, coal tits, woodpeckers, jays, rabbits, foxes, badgers, llamas, alpacas, frogs, toads, sheep cows, horses, ponies, bats...
  • 2 beds, loft conversion where Crab Lane Crew was created, garden (with veg patch) at front, shed with deck (on top) at the back, and this-
view directly at the back of the house

It's on with Rowcliffes of Whaley Bridge at £135,000. Search for 7 Lake View, or 2 bedrooms in furness Vale. Why not book a viewing?
Here it is on Google Earth - look for the end of Calico Lane.

Oh and it's not far to Marple, where Archers do the best meat pies and fancy cakes.
