Full description

Set in a plot extending to just under a quarter of an acre and located within walking distance of all village amenities - a fine individual detached house of quality and character offering spacious and adaptable family accommodation.

First floor: Four bedrooms and bespoke family bathroom. Outside: Large gravelled driveway, superb rear garden and single garage. No ongoing chain.

Little Croft enjoys a superb central village location within walking distance of shops, two railway stations and an outstanding range of primary and secondary schools in both the State and Private sectors. The centrality of the location does nothing to diminish the individuality and privacy of the property. The house is set in a plot extending to just under a quarter of an acre and internally has been lavished with quality, modification and additions.
Throughout the house there is an attractive blend of more contemporary styling with traditional features. This is particularly evident in the spacious entrance hall which is of a classic 1930's design. Off the entrance hall is a spacious living room that has an open fire as its focal point and light from three sides. The dining room has a superb bespoke Clive Christian floor to ceiling dresser unit whilst the conservatory overlooks the fantastic South facing garden. Arguably the highlight of the entire house is the superb bespoke Clive Christian breakfast kitchen. For the prospective purchaser who appreciates quality, the kitchen in Little Croft would be difficult to better. The craftmanship of Clive Christian kitchen is renown world wide and the extensive range of units complimented by a gas fired Aga and central island unit combine perfectly to create a first class living environment.

It should also be noted that the kitchen lies adjacent to the dining room separated only by double doors. This therefore gives the opportunity for the space to be combined to provide a more open plan arrangement.
Completing the ground floor accommodation located off the breakfast kitchen is a spacious and well appointed rear porch/utility room which has a further range of bespoke units. Access from this area can be gained to a useful ground floor shower room.
At first floor accommodation comprises two principal double bedrooms, both have the benefit of Clive Christian bespoke bedroom furniture. The two further bedrooms are single size and serving all the bedrooms is a bespoke bathroom, again with an outstanding level of finish.
Externally there is a large gravelled driveway to the front which provides parking and turning space for several vehicles. The South facing rear garden is an outstanding feature of the property being noticeable not only for its excellent size but also its high levels of privacy, seclusion and establishment.

The size of the plot is such that prospective purchasers may wish to carry out a significant extension so as to further maximise the potential of the location. Any extenstion works would of course be subject to the planning permission being granted. In summary, this excellent detached house is sure to attract significant levels of market attention due to its rarity value within one of Cheshire's most sought after village locations.

Hartford combines rural appeal with first class accessibility. Within walking distance of the house are two railway stations - Greenbank (Manchester to Chester line) and Hartford (Liverpool - Crewe - London). Road access to the M6 and M56 is afforded by the A556 and the A49 whilst Liverpool and Manchester International Airports can be accessed comfortably. Major commercial centres such as Chester, Warrington, Liverpool and Manchester are within reasonable travelling distance. The village has a number of shops serving everyday needs. There is also a hotel, two pubs and two well attended churches. Northwich town centre, approximately three miles distant, is rapidly expanding and continues to offer changing and an ever more diverse range of shopping facilities including a regular market. Hartford is renowned for its superb educational facilities catering for all age groups, including the highly reputable Grange Private School (junior and secondary level), Hartford High School, two excellent junior schools, Roman Catholic High School, Mid-Cheshire College of Further Education and a day nursery.
