Macclesfield Cheshire, SK11

about

A bohemian Georgian town house in the centre of  Macclesfield,  Britain’s famous Silk Town.

This historically important property was built for the Roe family and is said to have housed the son of Charles Roe, with the house next door belonging to his mistress! Whether true or not, the steamy story conveys something of the sexiness of the building.  It is grand, strong featured and full of character. The property houses quirky furnishings and props that lend themselves to a variety of shoots.

The floors are exposed boards throughout, walls are mostly dark moody hues F&B Railings (Kitchen), Hague Blue (Living/Dining), Inchyra Blue(Master) or stripped back plaster (Master).  Deep skirting, cornicing, high ceilings and fireplaces all add excitement and glamour to this beautiful property. The top floor bedroom has a  fresher feel to the rest of the house in F&B Purbeck Stone. It has the best light for make up etc. Also a walk in shower and a dressing room.

The Master bedroom has a working roll top bath in it’s centre.

The owner is very chilled about the house and accepts shoots which involve colour changes to the painted walls.

There’s an original working Adams fireplace in the vast, high ceilinged living room and the winding staircase is also by Adams.

The back of the house has two balconies, one looking out over the garden and big enough to seat 3 or 10 standing. At the top of the house is a small balcony which seats 2 or 4 standing and has views over the silk workers cottages as well as Silk Town roof tops, a mill and the Peak District hills.

The house is10 minutes walk from Macc station making door to door from London possible in less than 2 hrs.
