Thieves Hollow, PrestburyThieves Hollow, Prestbury

Set in about 10 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and grounds with outstanding southerly views, Thieves Hollow is one of the most impressive Arts and Crafts houses in the country.

Constructed and designed by W Worthington in a butterfly design, the seven bedroom property features out of brick rendered elevations with hand-made toughened glass double-glazed mullioned windows, surmounted by an attractive stone graduated roof complete with grand brick chimneys. This butterfly design allows the house to bask in sunlight at all times of the day, with the large windows flooding the house with natural light.

Located on one of the most prestigious roads in Prestbury in a very private and elevated position, Thieves Hollow is entered by electronically operated entrance and exit gates with tarmacadam driveway, leading to a large parking and turning area to the front of the house and lodge.

Internally the house has an abundance of period charm including a dining room with Inglenook style fireplace and painted panelled sitting room. The galleried and panelled grand entrance hall is a particular stand out feature, with its oak panelled and upholstered walls with balustrade staircase, stained glass window and stone fireplace with carved overmantel.

At the heart of the ground floor is the breakfast kitchen, complete with bespoke hand-made units and an Aga, set into a stone archway recess and an enormous granite-topped central island.

The first floor has a breathtaking master suite, with double height bedrooms, south, east and west facing, with exposed carved trusses. Off the bedroom is a large, beautifully fitted ensuite bathroom and dressing room. A small set of stairs from the inner landing leads to a private sitting room to the master suite. There are four further bedroom suites on this floor, all ensuite, two with sitting rooms and one with a dressing room. Also accessed off the first floor hallway is an additional dressing room, laundry cupboard and laundry chute, leading down to the utility room.

The second floor contains bedrooms six and seven, both of which have ensuite shower rooms. The property also includes a separate lodge containing three rooms, a kitchen and separate WC.
