This is a beautiful and character packed cottage style home in the North Cheshire countryside. Located on a quiet and sweeping country lane with stunning views over open fields and Antrobus Golf Club in the distance, this detached property really is idyllic. Orientated so the sun rises through the property in the morning and sets and the front in the evening. This makes a light filled home with rooms of generous proportions for a cottage of its age. Enclosed by a traditional black wooden picket fence at the front, there are two brick garages with a rear workshop and potting room, a York stone flagged driveway with parking for four family cars and a stunning private rear garden with a large dining patio, ornamental walls, mature shrubs and an orchard.

Antrobus is an idyllic and tranquil village nestled in the Cheshire countryside, yet still convenient for access to Stockton Heath and Knutsford, and the M56 and M6 network. What sets Antrobus aside from most villages is the community spirit which is prevalent through every aspect of life. The local shop and Post Office are run by volunteers, and the wider community includes a village hall, a public house,a very highly regarded school and a church. This village is ideal for those who want a quiet setting for family life but still want easy access to commuter routes, or those who want to retire and join in with the vibrant community activities.
