OWNER QUOTE: “We love how the large windows and general design of the house bring the garden into every room.”

Arriving along Riddings Lane, No. 42 enjoys a secluded setting, tucked back behind mature hedging and approached along a recently laid driveway of gravel and neatly edged block paved pathways. With ample parking alongside a two-door double garage there is space for up to five cars. Useful for families with teenagers and for having friends to stay.

Accommodating spaces
An understated home, at first glance, No. 42 subtly reveals its scale and scope as you move through the various rooms, all of which swim in light courtesy of the vast windows. However, the first clue to its spacious and accommodating nature are revealed in the inviting entrance hall.

From the welcoming glazed front door, emerge into a large entrance hall, setting the scene for what is to come. A welcoming space, the entrance hall is almost a destination in itself, a sunny and spacious arrival point for guests to chat and mingle. With ample space to meet and greet, the openness of the entrance hall is aided by the design of the staircase: a vintage feature with contemporary vibes, light filters down through the open tread from a large window on the landing. Sliding doors open to reveal plenty of storage for coats and shoes.

Scandi-vibes
Make your way through the door on the left, entering into a light, bright and yet cosy lounge. Carpeted underfoot, two walls of windows deliver an abundance of daylight inside. The ultimate room of retreat in the evening, snuggle up on the sofa in front of the open fire which sits within its stone surround, and lose yourself in a book or swap stories and laughter with friends.

Minimalist Scandi-style emanates throughout, with rooms dressed in calming, neutral shades, lifted by wooden furniture and touches of slate; No. 42 is a home of natural tones in harmony with the outdoors; constantly in view through the wide windows.

Feast your eyes
Next door, also on the left, make your way through into the wow-factor dining room, where enormous floor-to-ceiling windows and French doors create an unbroken flow with the garden. Sit with a morning coffee and admire the glorious garden views, the perfect seasoning to any meal. Well-proportioned, this room accommodates a large dining table and sideboard easily, but could alternatively be set up as a family room.

A home with great flow, the dining room leads directly through to the kitchen, a room once again intrinsically linked to the garden through its wide windows. White gloss kitchen units amplify the light, whilst oak worktops gleam under the downlighting beneath the cabinets.

OWNER QUOTE: “The light from the windows is an outstanding feature of our home.”

Sociable kitchen
Dine at the breakfast bar, cook up a feast using the Neff double oven and separate gas hob set beneath a matching extractor hood…rinse the plates whilst admiring the birdlife as it flits about the garden: a peaceful and serene setting. Tucked off the kitchen, a utility room accommodates all the laundry facilities and provides a large amount of additional storage. It is plumbed for a washer, dryer and dishwasher.

Next to the kitchen awaits the third reception room. Formerly a playroom and games room, teenage den for pizza parties and cinema room, this multi-use room is part of the modern extension that took this home up to five bedrooms. Currently, this versatile room serves also as a gym.

OWNER QUOTE: “It’s great in here for movie nights, it’s been a really useful space over the years for the whole family.”

Completing the easy flow loop of the ground floor is the large cloakroom, furnished with wash basin and WC.

Let there be light…
Make your way upstairs to the galleried landing, where the impressive size of the upstairs accommodation is instantly apparent. Light flows in through a large window effecting a bright and cheerful ambience.

Refresh and revive in the family bathroom on the right, fully tiled in buff natural tones to the walls and floor. Soak away the aches in the P-shaped bath, with overhead shower attachment. There is also a wash basin with mirror over and WC. Light flows in through a window to the side, with contemporary spotlighting inset within the ceiling.

Room for all
Turning left, follow the bannister along before arriving at a tranquil bedroom, beautifully illuminated by windows to the front and side, capturing leafy views of the garden. Nestled beneath the gentle slope of the roof, there is abundant storage available within the eaves space.

Next door to this spacious double bedroom, also overlooking the garden to the rear is the guest bedroom. Natural tones pervade once more in the décor, furnished in light wooden furniture, a perfect match for the honeyed tone of the solid oak doors. Guests can freshen up in the privacy of their own ensuite, fitted with shower cubicle, wash basin and WC; fully tiled to the walls.

Work from home
Continue along the landing, sneaking a peek through to the study on the left. Spacious enough to accommodate a double bed, this bedroom currently provides the perfect place in which to work from home, with uplifting views out to the garden, its trees and abundance of wildlife.

A third double bedroom contains ample space for a bed, wardrobes and chest of drawers; with well-proportioned bedrooms throughout, families need not worry about ‘who gets the best bedroom’.

Part of the new extension, the principal bedroom is tucked away to the furthest end of the first floor. Here, discover an abundance of storage in the fitted wooden wardrobes. A room bathed in light courtesy of the large window overlooking the garden, wake up to a haze of pink when the cherry blossom flowers in April. Sneak a peek through to the infra-red heat room and ensuite with wash basin and WC alongside a shower.

OWNER QUOTE: “When we extended, we wanted to make sure the home was balanced and that it retained its great flow.”

Private corner garden
Substantially sized, the rear garden is set in a private corner plot; a verdant space with an extensive patio area spanning the width of the home before stepping up to a broad and bountiful lush green lawn.

Soak up the peace, privacy and tranquility of the garden, where birdsong is a constant companion. Place feeders in the trees and hedges and see the birds flock.

Sunny and spacious, follow the sun as it moves around the garden, finding shelter and shade from the mature shrubs and trees. A garden that wraps around the home, there is ample space for badminton or football nets.

The garden prolific with colour, there is interest and variety throughout the seasons, its positioning and high hedges ensure it is both private and sheltered from the wind during inclement weather.

In the neighbourhood
Perfect for families, Hartford’s wide range of educational opportunities is an enormous draw. From its nursery provision upward, there is excellent schooling in every shade, with St Wilfred's Catholic Primary School, Hartford Primary School, Hartford High School, all rated highly and sought after, alongside independent options at The Grange Junior and Senior Schools. Sir John Dene’s Sixth Form College is nationally highly rated.

Hartford is home to several cafés, bistros and eateries, offering a mix of modern places and traditional ‘pub grub’ with a gastro twist. Sample the specials at Chime, or celebrate that special occasion at The Hart of Hartford, or Hartford Hall.

An array of shops caters to your consumer needs, including a local Co-op, pharmacy, butcher, a hairdresser, a barber and a newsagent.

Hartford has a thriving sense of community, with an active church with parish council and village hall events alongside a tennis club, and cinema and theatre open to the community available at The Grange school. December sees the festive season celebrated by the Christmas market.

OWNER QUOTE: “Hartford is a lovely community with lots going on.”

Behind the parade of shops, discover the allotments and community orchard with fruit trees and herb garden.

An active rowing club in Northwich (only ten minutes down the road) caters for all ages and Oulton Park is ten minutes’ away for motorsport enthusiasts. The Lake District is only two hours away by road, with access into North Wales and Snowdonia and the Peak District achievable in an hour and a half.

Catch a train into Manchester picking up the tram at Altrincham or access the M56 and M6 within 15 minutes. National connectivity is easy, whilst for international travel, both Manchester and Liverpool Airports are around 30 minutes’ drive away.

Spacious, private and supremely sociable in its styling; No. 42, Riddings Lane is the ideal home for a growing family looking to enjoy the outdoors and the excellent education available locally, whilst enjoying life in the Cheshire countryside.
