Bank Cottage is a fantastic, detached period property on a secluded, generous plot, with spacious living accommodation and scope for modernisation. Internally, the ground floor has a fab entrance vestibule, multiple reception rooms, a large breakfast kitchen, shower room and storage. Upstairs, you'll find three big double bedrooms and the family bathroom. Outside, the huge garden wraps around from front to back and, to the rear, there's a detached garage/carport and space to park a handful of vehicles.

This property sits in a raised position on Gallantry Bank, in the rural Cheshire hamlet of Bickerton. It's a pleasant and picturesque location, with stunning views of the surrounding landscape and a handful of local villages providing everyday amenities. Within a radius of 5 miles you'll find Bunbury, Tattenhall and Malpas, and just further afield there's Nantwich, Tarporley and the city of Chester. Locally, the schools are well-regarded and the nearby village hall offers a varied selection of recreational activities and events. Access is absolutely no problem, as you've got a direct connection to the A534, leading to the A41, A49, A51, A55 and onto larger motorways of the North West.

Entrance Hall
4.10m x 3.35m (13'5" x 11') Inside, the vast entrance vestibule offers a bright and beautiful welcome into this fabulous family home. The lounge is straight ahead, with staircase and open archway into the dining room to your right.

Lounge
4.50m x 4.10m (14'9" x 13'5") This is definitely a family-friendly room and has more than enough space for your three-piece suite, side tables, TV stand, bookcases etc! The room is just flooded with natural light, thanks to windows on both sides, and has tasteful, neutral decor and a central chimney breast wall. (The fire is currently electric, but the chimney has not been blocked up, and a real fire or log burner could be instated as an alternative.)

Dining Room
3.65m x 3.40m (12' x 11'2") This is definitely a family-friendly room and has more than enough space for your three-piece suite, side tables, TV stand, bookcases etc! The room is just flooded with natural light, thanks to windows on both sides, and has tasteful, neutral decor and a central chimney breast wall. (The fire is currently electric, but the chimney has not been blocked up, and a real fire or log burner could be instated as an alternative.)

Reception Room
3.40m x 2.35m (11'2" x 7'9") Overlooking the garden and nestled between the kitchen and dining room, the snug is exactly that! It's a lovely, cosy place in which to put your feet up with a good book/tv show/crossword puzzle and enjoy a nice cup of tea and a bit of quiet time...

Kitchen
4.40m x 3.65m (14'5" x 12') Next up, the breakfast kitchen is housed in a more recent extension and, again, has the advantage of windows on two sides and all the lovely light that spills through. It's a really good size and, although dated cosmetically, it's still fully functional and has everything you'd expect.

Rear Porch
From the kitchen, a small hallway/porch area leads to the ground floor shower room and utility/storage room to the rear. The back door is here, and it's a good spot for raincoats, muddy boots, umbrellas etc!

Shower Room
3.70m x 1.90m (12'2" x 6'3") In here, you'll find a full shower room (large shower cubicle, WC and hand basin) and integrated storage cupboard, where the oil-fired boiler is located.

Utility Room
3.60m x 2.95m (11'10" x 9'8") Formerly a stable, the utility room isn't somewhere you'd wish to keep your prized possessions, but it's that extra bit of storage space and somewhere to house the laundry appliances.

Bedroom 1
4.50m x 4.20m (14'9" x 13'9") The master bedroom is a large, L-shaped room with multiple windows, high ceiling and fitted wardrobe. The decor is soft and neutral, and there's plenty of space to play with. The view from here extends across the hillside, taking in Combermere Abbey and reaching as far as the Shropshire Wrekin!

Bedroom 2
3.65m x 3.40m (12' x 11'2") At the other end of the landing, and down a couple of steps, bedroom two is another decent double bedroom, this time at the rear of the house. There's a pitched ceiling, exposed timber beam and sash window overlooking the garden.

Bedroom 3
3.35m x 3.15m (11' x 10'4") Last but not least, this lovely double bedroom has pale blue paintwork, neutral carpet and gorgeous view across Gallantry Bank, over Bickerton village and beyond!

Bathroom
3.60m x 2.30m (11'10" x 7'7") Down a few steps from the landing, the spacious family bathroom is fully equipped with roll-top bath, double shower cubicle, WC and pedestal sink. As with the kitchen, it's admittedly in need of an upgrade, but all in good working order! There's a corner cupboard housing the hot water tank and a little shelf space for storage.

Garden
The outside space is a real feature here, with a huge wrap-around garden encircling the house on three sides, and trees and hedgerows positioned along the boundary, creating a sense of privacy and utter seclusion. It's worth mentioning that we're on a hillside, so the garden is not fully level, but it's a fantastic place for the children to play, explore and discover the best of British wildlife! The plot is circa one third of an acre, so there's plenty of space to build an additional dwelling/annexe (STP) if that's a box you're looking to tick. There's vehicular access both to the front and rear of this property, but only the rear facility is currently in use. You'll easily fit a handful of vehicles in the paved parking area, but there are also covered parking options by way of a brick-built carport and single garage (detailed below). The garage and carport are behind the house and have been added by the current vendor. There's power, light and additional storage in the roof space.
