Acton Bridge is a desirable semi-rural hamlet only 4 miles from Northwich town centre. Whilst enjoying an open aspect over some of Cheshire's finest countryside to the front and rear, the property is by no means isolated with a good range of amenities within striking distance. Shopping facilities are met at the nearby towns of Northwich, Knutsford, Warrington and Chester. There are numerous private Sporting Clubs within the surrounding areas including a number of notable golf courses.

Excellent educational facilities cater for children of most ages in both the state and private sectors; particularly the close proximity of The Grange at Hartford.

Acton Bridge train station provides a 2 hour 4 minute service to London Euston via Stafford. The nearby A49 provides links to the North West motorway network placing Liverpool and Manchester International airports within easy reach.


Believed to date from 1729, Acton Lodge is an attractive double fronted detached family home offering over 3,500 Sq Ft of living accommodation, set within 0.43 acres. The current owners have commissioned an extensive yet sympathetic program of redevelopment in recent years which has been superbly executed using high quality and carefully selected materials, fixtures and fittings. The works have resulted in a delightful family home which now seamlessly blends Georgian splendour with modern convenience. The accommodation is perfectly designed for modern living and would ideally suit the growing family.

A reception hall of grand proportions provides a lasting first impression featuring a multi-fuel burning fire and stone flooring. To the right of the hall is the study and the living room; both rooms are generously proportioned and feature log burning fires. To the left of the reception hall an archway leads through to an inner hall which is open plan into the dining room and links the dining kitchen; a layout which flows wonderfully and is well suited to entertaining.

The farmhouse style dining kitchen has been fitted with high quality in-frame shaker style units with oak work surfaces, Belfast sink, integrated dishwasher an AGA range and space for an American style fridge/freezer. The dual aspect kitchen benefits from a large pantry and French doors onto the rear gardens. The accommodation is completed by a side entrance vestibule/boot room, a fitted utility room and a cloakroom with w.c.

At first floor level the galleried landing enjoys elevated views over open countryside whilst leading to four double bedrooms and a well appointed family bathroom. Both the master and guest bedrooms benefit from traditionally styled en suite facilities. On the second floor there are two further double bedrooms and a modern shower room.

Externally a five bar gate opens onto a limestone gravelled driveway which provides extensive off road parking and leads to the oak framed double car barn and single garage. To the rear of the property a large decked terrace adjoins the dining kitchen and living room with steps down onto a gravelled terrace. The south westerly facing gardens are mainly laid to lawn with well established borders planted with an array of plants and shrubs.
