Why have one countryside cottage when you can have three?

Dating back to the 1870s, three former cottages, modernised around 15-20 years ago, comprise Cockers Hey.

Around the bend along a picturesque country lane, where the main passing traffic consists of bicycles and horses, the handsome symmetrical front of Cockers Hey peeps into view.

This substantial four bedroom property came on the market at the end of March - it is listed for sale with Storeys, with offers over £850,000 being invited.

Located in Antrobus, the village of Great Budworth is also a short stroll away.

With ample parking for around four cars, in addition to a large garage, leave the car and make your way to the front stable door.

Feel the hygge embrace instantly, through the combination of white walls and exposed timber beams. A handy cupboard for coats and boots is found just on the left.

Cosy and warm, light and bright, a feature fireplace is stacked with wood, whilst pine flooring extends underfoot. Throughout the home, Scandi style emanates in the décor, using colours found in nature for a soft, enveloping feel.

Ahead, the wooden staircase rises up, with glass framed in ancient beams delivering a sneak preview of the snug lounge to the left.

From the entrance hall, take the stairs up to the large landing. Turning left, arrive at a double bedroom dressed in shades of white and blue, looking out towards the countryside.

Black and white tiles extend underfoot in the large bathroom, where twin wash basins are set beneath a mirror, and a large bath contains an overhead shower. There is also a separate WC.

A focal point of Cockers Hey is its glorious cottage garden, connected by a broad and beautiful patio to the home. Step up from the stone patio to discover a large, lush lawn, perfectly flat and ideal for a game of badminton or cricket.

Surrounding the garden, deep borders brimming with mature plants and shrubs provide a harmony of year-round colour and texture for a quintessentially English country garden.

Linking to the home, the garage offers bonus rooms, including an office with gym equipment, shower room and WC alongside a staircase up to an attic room and large loft – the ultimate den for children to camp out and play computer games.
