Tunnel End, Dutton, Warrington
Trent and Mersey Canal
4 Tunnel End is a stunning semi-detached late Victorian semi-rural cottage dating from 1898, set in a wonderful location above the southern portal of Preston Brook Tunnel, on the Trent and Mersey Canal. To the front it has fantastic views towards the canal’s approach to the tunnel. To the rear, the garden is a real treaure trove, a true gardener’s delight. The cottage is beautifully presented and much more spacious than it might appear on first sight.
The cottage is accessed via a half mile long private driveway shared by the cottage and two other properties. To the front there is a gated driveway with parking for multiple vehicles.
The front door opens into an entrance hall with space for coats and boots. A door leads into a bright and cosy lounge which features a fireplace with a solid fuel burning stove, exposed beams, and windows looking out to the front and side. A door to the rear of the lounge leads into a gorgeous country kitchen breakfast room which extends out into a lovely open plan snug with French doors and windows opening to the rear garden, as well as a window to the side and velux roof windows. There is also a bright and modern downstairs shower room with a window and velux roof window.
Stairs rise from the kitchen to the first floor landing. The master bedroom is a large double with countryside views to the front over the canal. Bedroom two is a good sized double and bedroom three is a smaller bedroom. Both of these have a lovely outlook to the side. The surprisingly spacious, traditionally styled bathroom is to the rear, and includes a Victorian fireplace and windows to the side and rear.
The gardens are beautiful and impeccably tended. Behind the house there is a gorgeous paved terrace with a shady pergola for al-fresco dining, leading to a further paved area and two areas of lawn, all of which is surrounded by raised borders, carefully chosen planting, and mature shrubs and trees.
