SET in a traditional courtyard setting, this detached modern family home encapsulates the best of village living.

Built in the 1980s the property, situated in Goostrey, has been upgraded in recent years and offers neutral interiors and re-fitted white bathrooms.

The front door opens to a large reception and dining hall which leads to a sitting room, study and generously sized, L-shaped modern kitchen breakfast room. The master bedroom with en suite occupies the rear of the house, allowing those open views over farmland to be enjoyed from two windows. There are an additional three well presented bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The unique courtyard setting provides a quirky but characterful entrance to the property which then benefits from a private gated drive with parking for several cars.

The gardens extend to the side and rear and are largely laid to lawn and bordered to all sides by beech, hawthorn and conifer hedging which provides superb privacy. Located on the fringe of the village and bordering open countryside, this lovely family home has the best of both worlds, surrounded by a vibrant and flourishing local community but close enough to feel rooted in the rural history of the area.

n This property is on the market for £674,950. For further information or any enquiries contact Ravensworth Estates in Knutsford on 01565 755444.
