Property Description

Located in the quaint village of Lower Whitley, in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, Ivy Cottage is a stunning property set in beautiful gardens on a private plot of almost an acre. Featuring impeccably maintained and refurbished accommodation this is a unique opportunity to purchase in this highly sought after location.

Built in 1857, Ivy Cottage is a wonderful example of a detached Cheshire cottage and includes an original stable and hay loft offering huge potential for further development.

Approached through two five bar gates with a sweeping gravelled in and out driveway, Ivy Cottage includes the main house plus the Coachman's Cottage now seamlessly joined with a glass roof over what is now a wonderful living room complete with well and original pump.

The property currently comprises over 3000sq ft of accommodation including to the main house: entrance porch, beautifully tiled hall, two sperate reception rooms and stunning dining kitchen with original stove. To the first floor there are three well proportioned bedrooms along with a beautifully appointed bathroom with free standing bath.

Whilst very much part of the main house, the Coachman's Cottage provides a unique opportunity to have a self contained two storey property within the main and includes bedroom, living room, bathroom and ground floor living space currently used as utility laundry room and boot room.

Outside there is so much to offer with beautifully landscaped gardens surrounding the property. There is a large rear garden with sunny westerly aspect, expansive lawn, beautiful border surrounds, patio seating and glass house. Parking for several vehicles is also included within the plot.

The Stables & Hay loft

This building adjacent to the main house originally provided stabling for two horses and includes many original features including stalls and feeders. The upper floor has circular side openings and beams. In recent years the owners have added a large double garage to the rear of this building and subject to necessary consents and regulations there is huge potential to develop this into a further property.


Lower Whitley is a highly desirable village location to the south of Warrington and just five miles from Stockton Heath. The area has lovely countryside walks, a historic church and local primary school. The area is conveniently positioned for access to the motorways with the M56 and M6 all within a short distance providing the commuter with excellent links for travel throughout the region.
