Brittany Cottage gives you two homes for your money, with an independent annexe accessible either from within the main property or via French doors to the rear.

Tucked away in quiet Westfield Road, this fabulous family home is just a short stroll from St Helens village green and an easy walk to the beach and St Helens Duver.

The front porch leads straight into the welcoming sun room, which is a versatile space and a whopping 34ft long. There’s plenty of room for a dining table or extra seating here, plus there’s the option to open the French doors onto the south-facing sun terrace, so on warm days you’ll be thoroughly spoilt for choice.

The sun room is also open plan to the kitchen, bringing a sociable aspect — perfect for when you’re hosting guests.

Solid Japanese oak flooring continues from the sun room into the sitting room — another generous space, with a large multi-fuel burner which will have no trouble boosting the central heating to create a super cosy home in the winter months.

The kitchen features a breakfast bar and a selection of matching white units, with contrasting dark worksurfaces over.

Off the kitchen, a small hallway leads to front-facing bedroom four and the lockable entrance to the annexe, with its open-plan living area, kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor.

Upstairs in the annexe you’ll find the double bedroom, which benefits from its own en-suite shower room.

The annexe is a spacious and light addition to Brittany Cottage and useful for holiday rental, visiting friends and family or even a permanent lodger or elderly relative.

It benefits from great views of Culver monument and has French doors out to the rear garden, shared by the main home.

The garden is lovely and secluded, with a lawned area, sun patio and a brick-built barbecue, with chimney.

There is vehicular access to both the front and rear gardens, with a wooden car port to the rear and a driveway and detached garage at the front.

Two double bedrooms and a family bathroom complete the downstairs accommodation.

Upstairs you have the impressive master bedroom, with great views of Culver Down, fitted wardrobes, an en-suite shower room and plenty of under-eaves storage.

In excellent decorative order throughout, Brittany Cottage is one of those homes you can move straight into without needing to lift a paintbrush.
