Craving a return to rural living, but keen to keep the perks and conveniences of city life? We know a characterful property where you can access train links and open countryside with equal ease! Time to pack up your belongings and relocate it to the Greenbelt as we explore magical Mount Cottage in the quaint hamlet of Werneth Low.
Pulling through the gates along the York stone driveway slip into a new relaxing style of living as you park up by the cobbled courtyard (plenty of room for four or five cars here). Originally a farm, Mount Cottage dates back to the late 1700s/early 1800s and served as a re-shoeing point for horses carrying heavy loads over from the salt mines of Winsford, Cheshire, on their way to Sheffield. Its former smithy has now been developed into another beautiful property nearby.
Time to explore; first stop, the lounge. A hearty and warming open fireplace takes pride of place on the far wall surrounded by exposed red brick and flanked by traditional candle lighting sconces. Within the fire surround, recessed shelves beneath the mantelpiece make for handy storage for books or a scented candle or two.
Slip through to your left to the centre-point of the home, the traditional farmhouse kitchen. Step onto the red quarry tiles and note the traditional touches, from the countrified, sunken Belfast sink to the carved wooden units. Take a break from rustling up a summery potato and fresh green bean salad by allowing your gaze to be drawn out of the large picture window to the bright purples and pinks of the azaleas and neat trim of the cropped box hedging beyond.
Downstairs you also find your sparkling bathroom. Tastefully tiled in black and white, sink down for a soak in the tub before plucking your warm towel off the traditional cast iron enamel white radiator. So relaxing!
Now we come to your truly decadent dining room. A bountiful bay window reaches out towards the back of the room, creating such a sense of space. The perfect place to sit with a book or simply gaze out to the glorious garden for some quiet 'you time'.
Follow us through as we explore your majestic master suite. High exposed beams and purlins give this main bedroom a regal feel, creating a light and bright space.Such a large room, it runs the width of the house, and also houses your pristine en-suite shower room, perfect for those important morning wake-up spritzes!
Next door, discover your two guest bedrooms - a cosy single room ideal for a nursery or study, or even an over-nighting grandchild. A further room is currently in use as a single bedroom but could easily house a double should you wish.
It is the room at the end of the landing, however, that will capture your heart completely; sneak a peek with us now. Abundantly sized, this bedroom boasts built in book shelves and even an authentic fireplace. Again, spanning the width of the house, this room is a fair rival for the position of 'master' with its opulent fireplace and rustic beams.
Migrate outside now, to explore your show-stopping garden. Or should that be gardens? Your extensive grounds are beautifully divided into homely 'rooms' meaning that outdoors is as much of an exploratory adventure as inside! Perfect for adventurous and curious youngsters.
