Tenure: Freehold

The Old Parsonage in Little Budworth is a distinctive, substantial and iconic property within the village. It is a property of fine standing dating originally from 1900's and still today having many original features and key elements of character. The present owners have continually updated and improved the house through the years so as to create a first class family home that offers a superb versatile layout, outstanding room proportions and a general feel of space, light and comfort. The property stands in excellent private gardens, has views of open countryside to the rear and in recent times the additional benefit of a two bedroom single storey annexe.

The principal house opens with an entrance porch that leads to a delightful reception hall. From the reception hall access can be gained to the cloakroom, study, drawing room, dining room and breakfast kitchen. The study is well proportioned and has a feature fireplace with surround and hearth. The drawing room is of an excellent proportion and has attractive wooden flooring and an open fireplace as its primary focal point. From the drawing room access can be gained to the single storey garden room that as the name suggests overlooks the external environment. There is an additional separate reception room with a very substantial dining room, whilst the breakfast kitchen is an appealing day to day space with Aga and an extensive range of wall and floor cupboards. From the breakfast kitchen access can be gained to a large utility room and the front porch. It should also be noted from the entrance hall access can be gained via stone steps down to an excellent converted cellar area. This room was subject to a comprehensive refurbishment and is presently utilised as a fully functioning home gym. There are numerous other potential uses for this space and there is also a small but very useful wine room in addition.

At first floor level the accommodation continues to impress. The principal bedroom has built in wardrobes and an excellent en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom is once again a more than generous double with the benefit of further built in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. Unusually for a period house of this nature the third bedroom has also been cleverly designed to incorporate an en-suite shower room whilst the two remaining bedrooms are served by an outstanding family bathroom designed to a contemporary specification in an attractive period style that perfectly suits the overall character of the house.

A significant feature to the Old Parsonage is the outstanding single storey two bedroom annexe that the present owners have created. Tremendous thought, consideration and detail has been put into creating this annexe so as to blend it with the original style and architecture of the principal dwelling. The annexe has its own private garden to the rear and it really is a perfect living space for a dependent relative, child returning from University, occasional guests and a multitude of other purposes. The annexe itself is actually a very good size with a wonderful contemporary open plan living/dining and breakfast kitchen area being the primary living hub. There is underfloor heating and an excellent range of units and appliances. Thereafter there is a double bedroom with en-suite shower room and a second bedroom which is served by a separate family bathroom.

Externally the property benefits from an excellent plot with ample parking and turning space for several vehicles at the front. The principal garden is to the rear and mainly comprises excellent area of lawn but also having more than ample space alfresco dining on a large patio area and has an abundance of young and mature trees and well stocked beds and borders. The garden is not overlooked from any angle to the rear.

This outstanding period property would make a wonderful family home and an early viewings is encouraged to appreciate its individuality and appeal.
