About this home

The Crofts is a charming and characterful four bedroom detached cottage enjoying an extensive and secluded spot of approximately 2/3 acre.

The property is thought to be constructed from timbers and materials reclaimed from a wing of nearby Broughton Hall, which was removed in the early 1920s and cleverly repurposed to create a unique cottage with some fabulous architectural details. There are several humorous and unique touches that add a huge amount of appeal to a cottage that is only 100 years old, yet could be believed to be 16th Century Elizabethan.

The cottage is set back from the lane and shielded by mature conifers offering a great degree of privacy. The driveway leads to an area of parking and detached double garage, the plot being large enough to accommodate further parking if desired.

The cottage has a striking frontage with a large bay window and imposing oak front door which opens into a oak panelled entrance hallway. There are two large reception rooms either side of the hallway, the sitting room with large bay window and window seat overlooking the extensive front gardens to one side, the second being used as the master bedroom to the other, served by a ground floor shower room and WC off the hallway. To the rear of the hallway is the dining room, linked to the kitchen by way of an under stairs passage.

Beyond the sitting room is a breakfast room, in turn leading to the kitchen with a separate utility and pantry. The kitchen enjoys views to the courtyard and to the large rear garden.

A split staircase rises from the hallway with one run leading to a double bedroom at the rear, the other run leading to two further bedrooms and recently refitted bathroom towards the front.

Mature gardens surround the cottage with a mix of shrubs, stocked borders and specimen trees adding year round interest. There are several places to sit and enjoy the tranquillity of the location from the stone paved terrace at the front, the raised lawn, secluded side garden or larger rear lawn.

The property is utterly charming having clearly been a dearly loved family home, the significant plot size making it possible to further develop and expand if desired (obviously subject to obtaining the relevant permissions). The Crofts offers a rare opportunity to purchase a charming cottage in a much sought after area and will no doubt appeal to a buyer who will appreciate the quirk and character of such a unique family home.
