PROPERTY OF THE WEEK – BAKERY COTTAGE, BROXTON
Bakery Cottage, Broxton is a charming detached family house extending to an impressive 2,770 square feet with a superb high-quality annexe – set in a delightful plot of half an acre and having the added advantage of two parking areas Bakery Cottage is an extremely desirable property that is perfectly located on a tranquil rural lane yet only 12 miles from Chester City centre
Bakery Cottage is situated on Sherrington Lane which is a residential road renowned for its proximity to some of Cheshire’s finest countryside and a particularly appealing mix of individual property types. The Old Bakery perfectly encapsulates these attractive features and must be viewed in order to be truly appreciated. The location is superb and the property is located in the heart of the Sandstone Trail making it a paradise for those who enjoy walking.
There are numerous features of note, far beyond the norm. These include a fantastic quality annexe (accessed from the house), an impressive half acre plot, delightful rural views, two parking areas and a particularly flexible layout that can be easily adapted to suit differing requirements.
As presently configured, the house comprises five bedrooms, two bathrooms, four reception rooms and a breakfast kitchen. There is also a beautiful blend of period features with more modern refinements.
In terms of square footage, not only are the rooms all of very generous proportions but they have also been arranged to optimise family living. The breakfast kitchen is of outstanding quality, has an attractive rural view from its window and has ample space for table and chairs. There are three other reception rooms – a study, dining room with sitting area and a separate living room with feature fireplace. Also at ground floor level excluding the annexe, there is a useful utility room and cloakroom.
At first floor level in the main house, there are four bedrooms, two of which are very generously sized doubles and a tastefully refitted family bathroom with limestone tiling.
The particular flexibility that The Old Bakery offers is due to the more recent renovation works where part of the original barn has been converted into superb high grade living accommodation that could easily be used for generating additional income as a holiday let or Airbnb. There is also still considerable scope to develop the remaining outbuildings if required.
It is accessed off the entrance hall and therefore can be utilised as either a completely separate annexe or as an extension to the living accommodation of the main house. Not only has this renovation created substantial additional square footage, but it has also been renovated to the highest possible standard.
The living room has excellent engineered oak flooring and on one wall a fabulous sandstone edged framing of the original bread oven to the bakery. A staircase rises to the first floor where there is a very large double bedroom which is serviced by a luxurious en-suite shower room.
It should also be noted that the current owner has continually maintained the accommodation. Recent changes including the decorating of the upstairs bedrooms and the complete remodelling of the living room with wood flooring and contemporary electric fire being installed.
Externally there is ample off road parking for four cars and excellent storage provided by the unconverted part of the barn. The garden is South facing, predominantly laid to lawn and has an attractive ornamental pond and a separate vehicular access.
