Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The cottage is charming in its current layout with potential for further extension and development subject to the appropriate planning permission. The accommodation opens with a large living room with triple aspect windows and a magnificent fire place at its focal point. From here access can be granted to the breakfast kitchen which has sufficient space for a kitchen table, with a door leading to the conservatory at the rear and stairs rising to the first floor.

At first floor level two bedrooms are serviced by the family shower room and separate cloakroom.

Externally the property offers a great deal to the outdoor enthusiast. Access is sought via a quiet lane which in turn leads onto the Bickerton Hill pathway which runs to the rear of the property. A gravelled driveway provides parking for up to three vehicles with decorative circular, raised bed at the head of the driveway. Two brick built stores provide external storage close to the cottage itself.

The gardens are predominantly to the side and rear of the cottage with split level sections and distinct areas of lawn. Boundaries to the residential curtilage are defined by mature trees and hedges offering high levels of privacy and seclusion.Accessible from both a pedestrian gate at the rear of the garden and a vehicular gate from the lane is the paddock to the rear. Extending to 1.796 acres this well maintained and versatile paddock enjoys remarkable views from the side of Bickerton Hill out, across the Cheshire Plain.
In its existing layout and condition the property remains a charming example of rural, period property although due to the size of the plot a substantial scheme of development could be envisaged subject to obtaining the appropriate permissions.
 

LOCATION Bickerton and Broxton are renowned for their natural beauty and proximity to surrounding countryside.

For those with educational requirements the house stands within the catchment area for the highly regarded Bickerton Primary School and the Bishop Heber High School in Malpas rated Outstanding by Ofsted in 2011.
