Three Bedroom Detached Cottage
Bran Cottage is a charming three-bedroom detached house constructed in 1848 and boasting an authentic cottage interior with beamed ceilings, exposed stonework and a beautifully detailed fireplace making it very unique property and essential viewing.
Set within a lovely conservation area close to motorway networks, it is ideal for commuting into Liverpool or Manchester and perfect for a professional couple who want a character home. It is also much larger than expected and therefore would also suit a family who want something different or don't want to live on an estate.
On the edge of the village it has a pleasant semi-rural feel yet is only minutes away from schools, plenty of shops and amenities including an award-winning butchers and country pubs, plus Ashurst Beacon Country Park is less than 5 minutes drive.
The property benefits from gas central heating and double glazing yet retains much of the character and externally there is a small garden to the side and a charming patio area to the rear.
