Linley House show home at Stretton Green.21ab23a8a24a85f2

Pride as country home in the running for major design award

A luxurious Cheshire home has been shortlisted for a second accolade in as many months after impressing an expert panel with its bespoke architecture and inspiring interior.

Shortlisted for ‘Best Family New Build Home’ at the prestigious Northern Design Awards, it’s a chance for further success for Redrow’s ‘Linley House’ show home at Stretton Green, near Chester. It’s already scooped a silver gilt award at the New Homes Garden Awards last month.

The architect-designed five-bedroom property, valued at over £1m, offers an unrivalled location just 10 miles from the designer shops and celebrated restaurants of Chester city centre.

Inspired by the famous manor homes in the surrounding area, the property features impressive attention to detail with exceptional quality stone enhancing stunning brickwork and grey slate roofing, as well as its own award-winning garden grounds, enhanced by country gates and mature trees for seclusion.

With almost 3,500 square feet of space inside, it’s easy to see how Linley House has been so successful in persuading purchasers to move to Stretton Green.

Perhaps one of Linley House’s most impressive aspects is the breath-taking kitchen, dining and family space created in an ‘L’ shape for easy living. Featuring professionally-designed bathrooms and marble-flooring the property demonstrates its unique character with additional surprises such as the  butler’s pantry, a spacious gym, and a galleried landing overlooking the entrance hall.

Linley house boasts excellent first floor accommodation, including its fantastic bedrooms – all of them generous doubles, three with en-suites. This includes a master bedroom which benefits from a double shower, bath and twin basins and an elegant open-plan dressing area.

Winners will be announced at a gala dinner on November 22 at The Monastery, in Manchester.

Anita Williams, sales director for Redrow (NW) said: “Naturally we are delighted to have our efforts recognised and we look forward to the awards event. In the heart of rural Cheshire, this is a home that sits in a class of its own.

“We took great care to design and build the homes at Stretton Green befitting this fabulous rural location, each with a bespoke quality and individual name, sitting in grounds which nestle around a stunning village green.

“Add to this the proximity to excellent local schools, restaurants and amenities, as well as the delights of Chester city centre, and we know we are creating a legacy to be proud of. Sitting proudly at the entrance, a residence of breath-taking luxury and impressive attention-to-detail, we believe Linley House is a family home that few others can rival.”
