Church Cottage, Duddon is located in a prime residential position directly opposite Duddon Primary School and St. Peters Church Duddon. The Primary School is consistently rated as one of the finest state primary schools in the whole of Cheshire and entry to the catchment area is extremely sought after. Church Cottage itself is an individual, unusual and unique detached house that offers tremendous accommodation, easily adaptable to suit individual requirements.
The house has not only excellent accommodation for a family, but has the added benefit of a ground floor annexe comprising study, bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. This annexe is ideal for those with dependant relative or could alternatively be used as additional accommodation for the family to live in. At ground floor level the remaining accommodation comprises an entrance hall, three separate exceptionally spacious reception rooms, open plan breakfast kitchen and stylish conservatory overlooking the rear garden. At first floor level the master bedroom is particularly impressive. The bedroom has a large en-suite facility and a terrific balcony that is very spacious and enjoys beautiful views over the south facing rear garden and enjoys aspects to Beeston and Peckforton Hills.
The accommodation requires in places some modernisation and improvement though could immediately be moved into and enjoyed while the eventual purchaser gathered ideas as to how to adapt the accommodation to suit them best.
It should also be noted that although there is no planning permission obtained, due to the size, gradient and location of the site, there is the potential for complete redevelopment of the site which may include the demolition of Church Cottage with a replacement of separate dwellings. As already stated, this planning has not been granted and it would be the responsibility of prospective purchasers to make their own enquiries.
Externally there is extensive off road parking and a detached double garage. The plot is set in approximately 2 acres with south facing gardens, orchard and paddock for equestrian uses. The grounds are an absolute delight noticeable for their superb levels of seclusion and privacy and their wonderful views beyond.
Duddon is an extremely popular village that lies in a central village location only 5 minutes from Tarporley village centre and 15 minutes from the thriving city centre of Chester. The location acts as an ideal base from which to access many other commercial centres including Manchester, Liverpool and Warrington. Furthermore it should be noted that both Manchester International Airport and Liverpool John Lennon Airport can be accessed within forty minutes drive. Nearby railway stations are located at Chester, Crewe, Frodsham, Hartford and Nantwich. Despite this centrality, the area as a whole is also renowned for the unspoilt countryside that surrounds the village and significantly the cottage falls within the catchment area for Duddon Primary School - widely regarded as one of the best state sector primary schools in the locality. For day to day amenities, Duddon has a public house and Okells Nursery and the villages of Tarvin and Tarporley are also close at hand.
