Humbug Cottage is a charming thatched cottage, offering excellent scope for updating and extending, and located in one of the most sought after locations in Knutsford. The property has been well maintained with the accommodation boasting period features throughout. The property compromises of three reception rooms, four bedrooms and two bathrooms. This much loved detached period family home dates back to 17th century and is just under 2,000 square feet. The cottage offers huge scope for buyers who appreciate the unique location and would like to engage in a project of upgrading or remodelling. The accommodation is currently set on one floor but there is the possibility to create a second storey (subject to planning permission) as there is a huge amount of space in the loft.
The front door opens into an reception hall which historically would have been the kitchen. The accommodation radiates from here with access to the dual aspect sitting room with fireplace and double doors leading to a patio at the side of the property. The reception hall continues through to the kitchen/breakfast room with a range of wall and floor units, as well as the usual kitchen appliances. To one side of the kitchen is a porch/boot room with access to the gardens and to the other side is a corridor leading to the dual aspect dining room and 4th bedroom/snug beyond. The three further bedrooms are all located on the east side of the building and they are accompanied by a family bathroom and shower room.
Tucked away within the Legh Road conservation area, Humbug Cottage is set in beautiful gardens that extend to approximately 0.33 of an acre, which comprise extensive mature gardens with lawned areas to the north and the south with farmland beyond and to the side. The block paved driveway leads from Croft Lane (which leads from Leycester Road) to a timber garage and further garden sheds beyond.
One is immediately impressed by the striking beauty of the private setting with the cottage, mature trees which complement the well-stocked gardens. A York stone path is to the front and leads around the whole property.
