Higher Whitley is a very sought after rural village that lies in the rural southern outskirts of Warrington and Stockton Heath, within easy reach of the M56 and some lovely surrounding countryside. The village centre, particularly this section of the conservation area is extremely well sought after and the house lies right in the middle, within a private and secluded garden. Grade II Listed and quintessentially Georgian, this lovely family house is absolutely charming throughout and has a large amount of accommodation, flexible for most family needs.

There are up to s reception rooms in all, and the house can be utilised in different ways. The original central front door leads through to an entrance hall with staircase leading to all floors, a half cellar and a downstairs WC. The reception rooms include a charming snug at the front of the house, and a central dining room has concertina doors to a second, large rear sitting room with wood burning stove and access to a useful ground floor study. The heart of the house is a large open-plan kitchen/dining/living space with windows to two sides and a range of hand painted cabinets with a built-in dining table and a large family area, overlooking the garden. Most of the ground floor enjoys a limestone tiled floor and the family area in the kitchen has a wood burning stove. A glazed door leads through to a small sun room with french doors to the terrace and garden beyond. At the rear of the house is a utility room with matching hand painted cabinets and ancillary rooms including a boiler room to the rear.

The main suite on the first floor enjoys a walk-through dressing area, an en suite shower room and a good sized bedroom. Three further double bedrooms are also on the first floor - one with an en suite bathroom and the other two sharing a large family bathroom with bath and separate shower. On the upper floor are up to three further bedrooms - one currently used as another lounge, and one as a study, sharing a top floor shower room.

At the rear of the house is a further small area of lawn and a good size detached double garage.
