A 'CHARMING' Grade-II listed period cottage located in a picturesque Cheshire village has gone up for sale at £850,000.

The four-bedroom property, off The Mount in Great Budworth, boasts stunning open views of the countryside and sits in about 1.25 acres of beautiful gardens.

Ideally located near the centre of the village, the cottage is being marketed by estate agents Stuart Rushton & Co. of Knutsford.

On entering the property, guests are greeted in an entrance vestibule, before they can head to the first of two reception rooms on the ground floor, which also acts as a dining room.

Opposite the front door are the stairs to the first floor and off the dining room is a small cloakroom.

Back near the entrance, visitors can turn left and head towards the lounge, the second of the two reception rooms.

The stairs to the first floor lead to a landing, from which the four bedrooms can be accessed. Also upstairs is a family bathroom.
