Welford Cottage, Kelsall, CW6 0RA
A well proportioned and versatile four bedroom detached family home occupying excellent large plot in a popular location within strolling distance of the centre of Kelsall
Welford Cottage is an excellent family home which occupies a substantial plot positioned between Old Coach Road and Chester Road. The property looks over and faces on to Chester Road it is actually accessed from the rear off Old Coach Road, hence its address. The house is positioned towards the centre of the plot with gardens surrounding the property with ample parking as well as a detached garage.
The accommodation opens with an entrance vestibule which in turn opens up into the entrance hall. From here access can be granted into three of the principal ground floor living rooms. To the left is a kitchen which has recently been refitted and offers high quality fixtures and fittings throughout. To the alternative side of the entrance hall is the dining room that provides further ample and versatile space and in turn has double doors that open into the conservatory to the rear. The living room is positioned to the rear of the property with an excellent bay window overlooking the larger part of the garden. The fireplace is the focal point of this room with a woodburning stove. From the living room access can be granted into the hallway which opens up into the sun lounge/garden room which again has excellent views over the garden to the rear. The hallway also provides access to the first floor as well as a door into the rear hall which opens up into the cloakroom and utility.
At first floor level the accommodation continues to impress with four well proportioned bedrooms and an attractive family bathroom.
Externally there is a detached garage and store which provides excellent storage space as well as a large driveway with ample parking for up to four vehicles. The plot surrounds the property which is potentially laid to lawn but with an area of decking positioned just off the conservatory as well as further storage areas surrounding the garage which purchasers may utilise within the outdoor space. The plot is defined by mature trees and hedges as well as some parts of fencing and the plot is of an impressive scale particularly considering the property's village location. Subject to the correct planning consents potential purchasers may wish to consider this a building plot for either a knock down and replacement with one if not more dwellings. Prospective purchasers wishing to pursue this matter would need to satisfy their planning requirements and please call Jonathan Spencer at the Tarporley office should you wish to find out further information about this.
