Property description

A rare opportunity to acquire an exceptionally well maintained country cottage being full of character but also having all modern conveniences which the present day purchasers seek.

This home is constructed of brick front elevations with the rear being stone, all under a pitched tile roof which has been replaced in recent times. The windows are PVCu double glazed and it has a high security "Rock" front door. Internally the fully centrally heated accommodation comprises: Hall, lounge/diner, quality stone built conservatory, sitting room, fitted kitchen, rear porch and cloakroom/w.C. To the ground floor. At first floor level the landing allows access to three double sized bedrooms and bathroom which has been converted to a shower room.

The property is located near Congleton Golf Course, Tommy's Brook and abuts onto the Biddulph Valley Way. Although being on the fringe of the countryside, the proximity of local amenities are within walking distance and Congleton town centre is a 5 minute drive away. The degree of convenience is in itself preferable in the hustle and bustle of today's society.

Outside to the front there is off road parking terminating at an attached garage. To the rear there are double wooden vehicle access gates onto a stone flag courtyard with pond. Steps up lead to a beautiful terraced garden with four seating areas and also having a separate workshop and adjoining store.

Viewing is essential to appreciate this home and its surroundings.
