Butlers Cottage is situated in an idyllic semi-rural setting, within a short drive of the popular village of Tattenhall, offering tranquillity yet convenient for local amenities.
Tattenhall offers a broad range of local amenities, including a convenience store, highly regarded butchers, hairdressers, numerous public houses, restaurants and a doctor’s surgery. Local recreational opportunities include tennis, squash, cricket and football at the Tattenhall Recreational Club, in addition to some exceptional walking opportunities along the nearby Sandstone Trail.
On the educational front, Tattenhall Park Primary School is highly rated, being a feeder school to Bishop Heber High School in Malpas, rated “outstanding” by Ofsted. King’s and Queen’s Schools in Chester offer excellent independent education in Chester, as does Abbey Gate College, Saighton.
The area is well-placed for commuting to the commercial centres of the North West via the M53, M56 and M6 motorway networks, whilst Chester Railway Station provides a direct service to London Euston within two hours.
Butlers Cottage is a beautifully presented and free-flowing family home arranged around an imposing central reception hall. The property has been extended and refurbished to a particularly high standard by the current owners over recent years, now presenting a most appealing family home. The property could offer scope for further extension, subject to the necessary consents.
A six-panel front door opens into an enclosed porch with quarry tiled flooring with inner glazed doors opening into an imposing central reception hall, having high-quality limed oak effect vinyl flooring and a bespoke storage cabinet with display units.
The hub of the house is the kitchen, fitted with a bespoke range of hand-painted cabinets under oak block work surfaces incorporating a twin Belfast sink. A central island under granite work surfaces incorporates a sociable breakfast bar. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher and fridge. Travertine limestone flooring runs through to the dining room, warmed by underfloor heating. The spacious dining room has twin aspects and glazed French doors opening onto a natural stone paved south east facing terrace. Off the kitchen is a good-sized utility room with single drainer sink unit and plumbing for laundry appliances, with a door opening out to a useful canopy porch with bench.
Accessed through double doors off the reception hall is a well-proportioned sitting room featuring a wood-burning stove within a recess with stone hearth, an attractive bow window and further glazed French doors leading to the south facing principal gardens. Off the reception hall is a spacious cloakroom leading to a WC.
An attractive spindle turned staircase rises past twin arched picture windows to the spacious first floor landing. The master bedroom suite includes ‘his and hers’ built-in wardrobes and a luxurious en suite bathroom featuring a clawfoot bath and corner shower cubicle. There are three further double bedrooms; the guest bedroom enjoying en suite facilities and built-in wardrobes, whilst bedrooms three and four enjoy the use of a charming family bathroom having tongue and groove panelled walls to dado level.
Gardens and grounds
Butlers Cottage is approached through a gated entrance onto an extensive gravel driveway leading to a detached brick outbuilding incorporating a garage with home office to the rear, benefitting from lighting and power points. The garage does have limited depth, but could be extended into the home office, where required.
The gardens are particularly private, enclosed by privet and copper beech hedging. The rear gardens are south facing, mainly lawned with a range of floral beds, in addition to an established apple tree. Wrapping around the rear of the property is an extensive natural stone paved terrace, offering a variety of seating areas. To the front of the house is a courtyard garden, incorporating productive raised kitchen beds, and to the opposite side of the house are further lawned gardens, including a damson tree.
It should be noted the current owners rent an additional section of woodland garden to the east, from the neighbouring property to house their chickens.
