    Steeped in history and character a substantial, fully refurbished detached crook framed cottage set privately in large gated formal gardens within walking distance of the town centre and on the edge of the Legh Road conservation area.
    Within walking distance of the town and on the edge of the Legh Road conservation area, Grange Cottage was originally once known as Old Dame School and constructed in the early 1600's, once having a thatched roof. Over the centuries the property has evolved and grown sympathetically to provide characterful well balanced family accommodation which now extends to about 2700 sq ft. This includes the garage and outside kitchen area. The gated driveway extends into a large terrace patio which also serves a detached double garage and superb outdoor kitchen and bar. The generous private gardens are in complete privacy and particularly well stocked, totally enclosed and with large sweeping lawns flanked by abundance of flowers, plants, foliage and many mature trees.
    Tastefully renovated accommodation merges with yester year with many of the rooms having a wealth of exposed heavily beamed ceilings, wall timbers and evidence of the original classic twin crook frame construction with wattle and daub walls. There is even an original smoke hood, one of the last remaining in Cheshire encased in glass and exposed in bedroom three. The kitchen has been extensively fitted with a fashionable range of cream cabinets with granite work surfaces and numerous integrated appliances and there is a separate utility room. Overall there are three separate reception rooms from the dining hall where there is also a cloakroom with WC. At first floor level four generous bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en suite).
    In summary a lovely cottage residence in an idyllic private location and a slice of Knutsford's history!
