The Pocket House is an attractive bay fronted period town house that occupies a very convenient town centre location, situated opposite the pleasant open space of The Heath.
The deceptively spacious and tastefully presented accommodation is warmed by a gas fired central heating system, complemented by sash style uPVC double glazed windows. The property has been sympathetically modernised and enhanced over recent years but still retains some period charm in the from of period style radiators, cast iron fireplaces, ceiling cornicing and tall ceilings.
The arrangement of the accommodation is briefly as follows: Enclosed entrance lobby, entrance hall, lounge with feature fireplace and oak flooring, a splendid bespoke kitchen fitted with a range of painted units, useful understairs study area with fitted desk and storage cupboards, and a pleasant dining area situated off the kitchen and with double doors that open into a most attractive walled garden. The first floor landing affords access to 3 pleasant bedrooms together with a sizeable bathroom that is fitted with a period style three-piece suite and separate shower cubicle.
The house is set back from the road behind period style railings and to the rear is the previously mentioned walled garden that is mainly laid to lawn with brick block and cobbled seating areas. There is a very useful brick built outhouse that has been upgraded and is currently used as a utility room and is connected to both water and electricity. Knutsford is an attractive old world market town well-known for its narrow streets and many interesting and historic buildings. There are good shops for all everyday needs, excellent recreational facilities and a broad range of schools for all ages. For the commuter, the close proximity of the M6 and M56 motorways is of great benefit, whilst the rail traveller will be pleased to note that Knutsford's railway station lies on the main Manchester to Chester line. Manchester International Airport is within a twenty minute drive. Tatton Park, Cheshire's premier historic estate, is close to hand and provides delightful country walks.
