This wonderful four-bedroom house, located on one of Wilmslow's most sought-after residential roads, was designed by the celebrated architect Frazer Crane in the 1970s. The house has been sympathetically maintained by the current owners and features a spectacular double-height living room with full-height glazing giving views across the gardens to the Bollin Valley beyond.

Crane is perhaps best known for designing a glass and steel house for George Best. A personal friend of the footballer, he is portrayed in the film Best by Stephen Fry. Crane's sleek and audacious style of architecture, much inspired by the Californian Case Study houses, has earned him a reputation as perhaps the most important residential architect working in the north of England during the mid-century period. For more on Crane and the architecture of the house, see the History section.

The house can be found on one of Wilmslow's most sought-after road. Weston Road is a no-through residential road that borders open countryside. The centre of Wilmslow is a short drive away, as is the centre of Alderley Edge. Both towns are well known for their excellent range of shops, restaurants and other services. Wilmslow is approximately 11 miles from the centre of Manchester. Train services run from Wilmslow to Manchester Piccadilly in under 30 minutes and to London Euston in under 2 hours.
