FULL ADDRESS - 39 Birches Lane, Lostock Green

Tranquil setting
With all the warmth and charm of farmhouse living, No. 39, Birches Lane, a traditional Cheshire cottage in Lostock Green, is wrapped up in three quarters of an acre of former orchard gardens.

A tranquil setting, to the rear of the property farmland fields unfurl. No. 39 Birches Lane is a home at the heart of this rural location, the former grocers and general store for the community.

Park up in the double length garage, with workshop area. There is ample parking in front of the garage, whilst the square to the front of the cottage is common ground, providing additional parking for visitors.

Rustic features
Make your way via the front porch, into the warm and welcoming reception hallway, where original red quarry tiles, fireplace and feature wall of exposed brick set the stall for the traditional cottage features to come. Dining room, office, playroom or snug…this versatile room offers many options for use.

Beyond the entrance hallway, a living-dining room to the front enhances the rustic ambience of the home. Exposed beams overhead and cosy open fire, crackling within a red brick hearth and topped with a cruck beam, exude the antiquity of the home. Pitch pine skirtings and wooden flooring amplify the effect, as light streams in through windows to front and side.

Heart of the home
At the heart of the home is the farmhouse kitchen, revealing incredible views out over the garden. Cream tiling underfoot marries with the splashback tiles behind the cabinetry where there is plenty of storage space. Beams above retain a heritage feel, alongside the brick fireplace with electric stove – the perfect place for installing a modern electric Aga.

Quality wooden worktops surround the large Belfast sink, whilst integrated appliances include an oven, gas hob, fridge-freezer, dishwasher and space for a fitted microwave. The walk-in pantry retains room in the kitchen for a breakfast table, for casual dining with peaceful garden views.

Practical places
Outside, the utility room houses a washing machine and sink, with a gas boiler providing hot water. The ideal place for rinsing off the apples after harvest, there is also racking for boots and wellies and gardening essentials. Also outside, a gardener’s WC ensures indoors remains clean of muddy footprints.

Returning inside, nestled off from the kitchen, discover the spacious sitting room extension. Beams overhead are in keeping with the tone of home, with a roaring log burner adding a focal warmth, inset within a feature wall. Spotlighting adds a modern touch with quality laminate flooring underfoot. Relax with a book or entertain in comfort, with fantastic garden views framed through large windows.

Period features
Returning to the entrance hallway, ascend the antique-feel staircase, flanked by exposed timbers and red brick to the first floor, where four individual bedrooms brimming with character await.

Turn left to arrive at the first double bedroom, a handsome space where the original cruck beam is an impressive focal point, reaching up to the vaulted ceiling. Exposed red brick and an original fireplace capture the essence of countryside living. Views to the front capture the quaint red telephone box to the front green.

Across the way a second front facing bedroom draws in an abundance of light through windows to one corner.

Sweet dreams
Continuing along the landing, above the kitchen, a third bedroom currently housing bunk beds enjoys incredible views over the rear garden and to the rolling fields and farmland beyond.

Turning left from this bedroom arrive at the family bathroom, tiled to the walls and featuring bath, separate shower, and wash basin. Across the hall is a separate WC.

Returning along the landing, step up to a large, master bedroom, with quality laminate flooring underfoot and an elegant cream fireplace. Floral wallpaper harmonises with the cream tones to the remaining walls, whilst there is also a dressing area and ensuite shower room.

Former orchard
Outside, traces of the home’s former tenure as a grocer’s remains; a former orchard, spanning three-quarter of an acre, the garden features a number of more recently planted fruit trees, providing a harvest of pears, baking apples, russets and cherries.

Outside the back door, the original well to the home is covered in ironwork hidden beneath paving, another nod to the traditional elements still at play.

Vegetable beds offer the opportunity to grow your own, whilst the scope for keeping hens or creating an adventure playground area for children is palpable.

Village life
Step outside and explore the area. The Cheshire Grill is within walking distance, formerly known as the Duke of Portland in the pretty village of Lach Dennis.

Enjoy walks in the countryside nearby; take a picnic with the children to Shakerley Mere, calling in at the Three Greyhounds Inn for a thirst quencher before heading home. Beeston Castle and Delamere Forest are also within a short drive.

Marbury Country Park is ideal for families in nearby Northwich, with its streams, open spaces, woodland and play areas. Making the Sunday Times best places to live in the UK shortlist, Northwich is the perfect local town, handy for picking up the weekly shop in one of the larger stores or smaller independent retailers. Pay a visit to its traditional market serving up over 50 specialist shops and stalls.

Rudheath is only minutes away with a local Co-op and Spar for the essentials, the latter based in the handy garage.

Close to the bypass, No. 39, Birches Lane is conveniently placed for those commuting to Chester, Liverpool, Manchester or beyond.
