Full description

With over 3,700 square feet (350 meter square), including the swimming pool of course, nevertheless Ivy Cottage is no such thing in the expected sense of the word, a 'cottage'. Built in1840, however, it was designed as both living accommodation, tack room, hay loft and coach house, the only addition in fact being the swimming pool....

And so yes, this is indeed a large house with two reception rooms, kitchen breakfast room, cloakroom, garden or sun room and with five double bedrooms, en suite to the master bedroom and with wet room and full bathroom. More than that, Ivy Cottage is also a period 'character' house, of sandstone construction, with huge appeal.

The main reception room is directly off the kitchen come breakfast room, both rooms of significant proportions. As you can see from the floor plan, the stairs, central to the house, also separates the two main reception rooms, whilst there is a separate study room too. A Garden Room to relax in for morning coffee before a potter in the garden and after few lengths, stands between this main living room and the swimming pool. Both rooms look out to and have doors onto the private and south easterly facing garden.

Up at first floor and the landing area is in two parts, the first giving access to modern shower room facilities (and a clear southerly view), to the 'master suite' with its own bath and separate en suite loo and basin, as well as to the main landing which leads to the four remaining bedrooms.

Of course the master bedroom is especially large and to a degree manages to dwarf the remaining bedrooms although, once again, we refer you to the measurements on the floor plan below to appreciate that all four are indeed 'double' sized bedrooms. And the shower room and bathroom stand at opposite ends of Ivy Cottage, a simple but effective plan.

Back to the hub of the house, the kitchen. And large kitchens clearly demand plenty of work surface and heaps of storage/cupboard space - and so there is here. The working kitchen is well defined and separate from the breakfast area too.

Given the design of the house the hallway caters for the staircase and also leads to the office/study which in turn leads to the second reception room, a room that looks directly onto the courtyard and parking area, itself made private by the original sandstone walls and new electric double gates.

Outside and Ivy Cottage stands prominently on the corner of Noctorum Lane and Mere Farm Road. From the front elevation Ivy Cottage certainly has that typical cottage like feel in overture but we hope the slide show of photos along with the floor plan suggests somewhere more than that.

For guidance start your short journey at Birkenhead School with your back to it and look up towards Wexford Road. Drive along Wexford and either continue into Budworth Road turning left into Noctorurm Lane by the post box, or turn earlier into Mere Farm Road which, as we've indicated, continues into Noctorum Lane. Ivy Cottage is unmissable...but for Sat Nav: CH43 9UE
