A HOME with 'country cottage character' that overlooks the Weaver Valley has been put up for sale.

The 'private and secluded, yet not isolated' property sits in a half-acre plot off Wetton Lane, in Acton Bridge.

Marketed by Storeys of Cheshire at £800,000, the house has walks and pubs on its doorstep, and is not far from Weaverham or connections into Northwich.

The property listing on Rightmove says: "Formerly two properties dating back to around 1740, conjoined and extended in more recent years to create a sumptuously sized four-bedroom home, this property is at once spacious and cosy, a rare blend of capacious comfort."

Out front, there is ample parking for at least four cars on the driveway, alongside space provided by a detached double garage.

After stepping through a large porch, visitors will find themselves in a light and bright dining hall, with French doors ahead offering views out into the garden.

Continue through into the kitchen, to the right of the front door, to find cabinets with wooden worktops, offering plenty of storage space, and a range cooker. Other appliances include a fitted dishwasher and sink.

Off the kitchen is a cosy snug, which can also serve as a television room and study. Also on the ground floor is a downstairs cloakroom and toilet.

Heading upstairs, there are four bedrooms and an 'elegantly-tiled' bathroom, which contains a bath, overhead shower, wash basin and toilet.

In the master suite, at the end of the landing, there is space for a king-size bed in front of French doors which open onto a balcony offering views of the Cheshire countryside.

An en suite shower room is separated from the bedroom by glass bricks.

Outside, step onto the patio and head into the private garden beyond, where mature shrubs and trees border the large expanse of lawn.

The listing adds: "Ideal for entertaining, host barbecues on the patio, or celebrate birthdays with a marquee on the large, flat lawn.

"Soaking up the sunshine throughout the day, the garden features an array of fruit trees, including an impressive apple tree (perfect for cooking), hazel pear trees and a Victoria plum.

"Perfect for children and pets, there is ample space for ball games, tennis and swings."
