Comment from the current owners "We purchased Croft Cottage because of the garden, loads of space for the kids to play, trees to climb and places to hideout!"

Croft Cottage sits in 0.6 acres of gardens amongst rolling Cheshire countryside on the edge of the highly sought after village of Whitegate. The property is in a perfect location for those who enjoy the country life and is a 15 minute walk to the renowned Plough Inn country pub. Yet it is also within easy access of the A556 for those who commute.

Built in 1951 in the Arts and Crafts style, this home is now over 2,200 square feet and has a charming frontage and an imposing rear aspect which is dominated by a large two storey extension which has been recently added and includes a Garden Room with bi-fold doors and Master Bedroom suite. You enter into a good size porch which has recently been added, with space for boots, shoes and coats. A further and much larger Reception Hallway sits in the middle of the property and has an array of doors leading off and ample space for a piano and large armchair.

The newly added 21 feet wide Garden Room with windows to either side enjoys views of the extensive gardens and has bi-fold doors leading out - perfect for al fresco entertaining and socialising. A spacious Living Room sits on the south west facing end of the house and has a bay window with window seat to enjoy the superb views down part of the mature gardens. Another recent addition is the feature Welsh stone fireplace with wooden mantlepiece and slate hearth housing a log burning stove - the perfect place for cosy winter evenings.

Situated at the other end of Croft Cottage and having been recently modernised is a spacious L shaped, family sized, Dining Kitchen with ample space for a large dining table and patio doors out into the garden. The Kitchen has been re-fitted with an extensive range of modern units with granite work surfaces. There is a separate Utility Room and Ground Floor WC.

To the first floor of this excellent family home is a range of 5 bedrooms, including a Master Suite with Walk in Wardrobe and En Suite. A large and recently re-fitted Family Bathroom sits in the middle and bedroom 5 is currently used as a Home Office although the garden is such an excellent size that a garden building could easily be installed to provide private home working space away from the hustle and bustle of family life indoors.

The overall plot sits at over 0.6 acres and has a huge array of mature plants, trees and shrubs and large areas of lawn. There is a detached Double Garage to one side of the property and a wide sweeping driveway with ample parking for several vehicles. The owners have a greenhouse, patio, vegetable area and garden shed.

Our clients have undertaken a series of renovations at the property during their ownership - see below for further details.
