A wonderful detached modern country house newly completed in 2015 in a charming period style and to an excellent standard, in a wonderful and exceptionally private rural position amongst open countryside, in between Lower Peover and Plumley villages

Keepers Cottage is positioned in an idyllic rural spot at the end of a long private track with no nearby houses or surrounding neighbours, standing in its own beautifully landscaped gardens and grounds including a separate one bedroom guest apartment over the triple garage.

Constructed in 2015 to an excellent standard from mellowed brick elevations with part decorative timber framing and designed to mimic an original period building, the house is very pretty from all elevations and has been well maintained by the current owners during their time there since new. The gardens and grounds have been a particular focus and are immaculate with several distinct areas including a kitchen garden and covered outdoor kitchen area.

Internally, a feature reception hall with turning flight oak staircase and galleried landing over, forms the centre piece of the house and has two sets of French doors leading out to the kitchen garden beyond. Off the hall is a small study overlooking the front drive, with fitted cupboards, a downstairs WC and the main reception rooms. The lounge is an attractive room with windows on three sides and French doors to the terrace, and boasts a substantial feature inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and stone hearth. A range of bespoke fitted cabinetry includes bookcases, a media area and low level cupboards. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with excellent quality units comprising a range of hand painted base and eye level cupboards with central island, with stone tops, and a Belfast sink. There is a fitted corner seating and dining arrangement and a utility room. An opening off the kitchen leads to a lovely orangery with stunning timber framing and an aspect over the gardens including bi-fold doors to the terrace. A substantial wood burning stove makes the room especially cosy in the winter.

The bedrooms are set out over two upper floors, as several have mezzanines, and they have lovely views, the main bedroom has one exposed brick wall, a staircase to a super dressing room, and also a walk through wardrobe with adjacent en suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes - bedroom two has a high vaulted ceiling, a lovely aspect and an en suite shower room, bedroom three is another large double with built-in wardrobes and bedroom four is a second duplex room, with a dressing and sitting area on the lower level and bedroom in the mezzanine, Bedrooms three and four share a good sized family bathroom with freestanding bath and separate shower cubicle.

Externally, substantial remote controlled timber gates give access to a large block paved front forecourt with feature lighting, and the lawned gardens which surround the house are beautifully tended, well planted and have mature beech hedging on all sides. The current owners have created several areas of interest within the gardens including a lovely outdoor kitchen covered with an open pergola, with quartz worktops set on brick plinths. A kitchen garden is situated to the rear of the house with raised planted borders and a pretty greenhouse.
