'Cherry Cottage' is something of a rather outstanding home and one which stands in the most beautiful of extensive and considerably private grounds, perfectly positioned in Oxton within a short walk of Birkenhead School. A rare find indeed, hidden from the road and with so much outdoor space and yet so very central and accessible.

A flourishing and established pink flowering cherry tree stands opposite the main entrance, an entrance of oak and stone work to the threshold. An inviting hall welcomes you in and here the oak theme continues to doors and staircase. Often such woodwork can be bit a bit too much, a touch too heavy; here in our opinion it's a perfect balance. Wood block floors too are a feature.
There's a Minster fireplace to one living room and an 'of its period' brick fireplace with timber over mantle to another. Furthermore the Pvc double glazing system, whilst clearly modern, is in keeping with the cottage appearance and of a pattern that replicates the original.
Well, you have a choice of comfortable rooms, two beautiful 'through rooms' and a dining room and as mentioned all maximising the really glorious views onto the gardens - in fact all three rooms have direct access, french doors, patios doors and a particularly attractive feature bay.
More than just a kitchen
This large family room (26'7 x 10'5) has a completely different feel. Fresh, thoroughly modern and bright but also well designed by Panorama Kitchens and well equipped too - from microwave to moulded granite drainer - in fact there are polished black granite work tops with an eye catching sparkle throughout and this extends to a lower level breakfast table comfortably for four to match situated by two windows which look onto the garden. Whilst in the evening there's a fairly comprehensive lighting system to cater for any mood!
..And more than a utility!
Off here is a super large utility. Handy for not just its size but for the access to front and rear as well as to one of the two garages and for its separate en suite shower room facilities. Naturally there's plumbing, sink etc and a tiled floor - so great for the mucky gardener or wet kids to freshen up in. (Save the smart cloakroom off the hall for your visitors!).
First floor accommodation
Also beautifully presented, calm, light and very, very comfortable. Along the landing are four double bedrooms, all with wardrobe furniture and three of those rooms with bedside and dressing table furniture to match. The master bedrooms, is, with no surprise, our favourite.
This is another 'through' room and its position is perfect for the very best views to the front and rear gardens. An absolutely charming room, luxurious and extravagant not least for both the size of and the finishings of the en suite.
This en suite has both a bath and separate shower cubicle and storage that hides the plumbing whilst for added comfort there's under floor heating.
To the other end of the landing there's a very different black and white shower room with separate loo.
To the outside
'Cherry Cottage' is actually back to front. That is that when you drive up the blocked paved drive passed two sets of wrought iron remote gates and parking side-bay, you pass the side of the house and drive onto a large forecourt area with parking for easily five or more in front of the main 'front' entrance to the house. Here there is additional parking adjacent to the large double garage (the second garage). Next to this a very pleasant garden area central to which is the cherry tree. Paths take you around to the main gardens as well as a fairly extensive pressed concrete patio area which, being ever so slightly raised, allows a great view down this established, manicured garden.
