Porthkerry is a striking individual detached house that enjoys a prime location in the heart of Little Budworth. Set in an individual plot extending to approximately a quarter of an acre, but the house also has the benefit of wonderful rural views to the rear over open countryside and towards the village cricket club. The house has been in the same ownership for over thirty years and is therefore a very rare and welcome addition to the market.

The accommodation opens with a spacious and welcoming entrance hall that has large amounts of light that floods into it via a feature window to the front. The living room extends to a little under 25ft in length and has a feature stone fireplace as its primary focal point. There is also a separate dining room and versatile study in addition to a shower room, store room and access to the double garage. The breakfast kitchen is well planned with a range of wall and floor cupboards and there are excellent views to the rear over open countryside.

At first floor level the master bedroom has an attractive lobby area and the bedroom itself is a very impressive space with fabulous triple width UPVC double glazed windows taking full advantage of the views over the rear garden and open countryside. There is also an en-suite bathroom. Thereafter there are four further bedrooms, all of which are of an excellent size and a separate family bathroom in addition.

Externally there is ample off road parking to the front via a spacious tarmacadam driveway.
