Full description

Keeper's Cottage is being offered to the market for the first time since the original gamekeeper's cottage was built circa 1840 on the Willington Estate. In the 1960/70's the property was extended by the current owners who have occupied the property for the last fifty years. The accommodation is well-proportioned and offers three inviting and charming reception rooms all with wood block floors and the focal point of the living room is a Jetmaster open fire. On the first floor, a spacious landing offers excellent storage space, off which there is a double aspect master bedroom suite with dressing room and en suite bathroom and five additional bedrooms served by a further two bathrooms.

Situated down a long private driveway Keeper's Cottage enjoys a secluded south-facing rural position bordered by a stream and is surrounded by open countryside.

The hamlet of Willington lies about nine miles east of Chester and offers a public house called 'The Boot' and The Willington Hall Hotel and Gardens with restaurant, spa and riding centre. Day to day facilities can be found in the nearby village of Kelsall.

A tarmacadam driveway is flanked on one side by a paddock and the other by a wooded area and leads to a parking and turning space at the side of the house. The outbuildings consist of a timber double garage, workshop/store and a log shed and situated in the paddock is a two horse timber stable with water and electricity. The paddocks are situated at the front of the property and also have a water supply. The beautiful grounds feature many 160 year old oak trees, specimen Rhododendrons and a mature mulberry tree.
