A GRADE II listed property situated in a quiet town centre cul-de-sac has been put up for sale.

The semi-detached house, in Brook Lane, Knutsford, is believed to originally date back to 1742.

Occupying an elevated position within a 'wonderfully mature' plot, the home is being marketed at £825,000 by estate agents Stuart Rushton & Co.

The property listing on Rightmove says: "Grove Cottage is situated on a small lane, in a very convenient location only a short walk to the shops on King Street and the train station.

"It enjoys a lovely, almost semi-rural atmosphere, moments from the plethora of amenities in the heart of the town centre yet a very tranquil setting within the edge of the Legh Road Conservation Area.

"The accommodation has a light and spacious feel yet retains great character and charm."

On the ground floor, there are three main reception areas - a dining room, with feature fireplace; a large lounge which comes with exposed beams and original cupboards; and a breakfast area.

The breakfast area, which is accessed from the kitchen, also contains double doors leading to the garden.

The fitted kitchen itself is 'stylishly finished' with quartz worksurfaces around a central island. 

Upstairs, visitors will find four 'well-proportioned' bedrooms, two of which include fitted storage. All are serviced by a large family bathroom and shower room.

The listing adds: "The mature plot has been beautifully landscaped over the years, making the most of the elevated position and tiering.

"There is parking for two or three vehicles to the front of the property, along with a detached garage on the opposite side of the small lane.

"The pretty façade is complimented by formal front gardens with a mature selection of plants and trees.

"To the rear, the doors from both the breakfast area and lounge open onto a lovely courtyard area, ideal for entertaining.

"Beyond the courtyard is a substantial grassed lawn with deep borders stocked with a selection of mature plants, shrubs and trees."
