Heath Worthy is situated in an extremely sought after location in the Wirral peninsular on the edge of Willaston towards the end of a No Through Road and is set well back from the lane shielded by two sets of electrically operated entrance gates. Despite its extremely private and rural location the property is superbly placed for commuting being within a short distance of the M53 permitting daily travel to all the major areas of commerce throughout the North West.
Local services are available in the Village of Willaston with more comprehensive amenities in the cities of Chester and Liverpool. Schooling is well catered for in the Villages of Willaston, Neston and Heswall along with a wide range of both private and state schools in Chester, Birkenhead and Liverpool. On the recreational front there are a number of golf courses within close proximity, including Royal Liverpool at Hoylake, sailing on the Marine Lake and the Dee Estuary and racing at Chester.
Heath Worthy dates from the early part of the twentieth century and is constructed of brick with rough cast rendered elevations under a tiled roof with high brick chimney stacks. The property has been the subject of a comprehensive scheme of renovation in recent years and now provides superbly appointed family accommodation arranged essentially over three floors. However despite the recent improvements the property remains a fine example of the late Edwardian building period and in particular the Arts and Crafts movement with high plaster molded ceilings, period doors and fireplaces and solid hardwood floors.
Accessed via an elegant reception hall there are three formal reception rooms with handsome fireplaces, one of which is wired for surround sound and as a home cinema. The kitchen has been re-fitted by the present owners and incorporates a range of high quality wall and floor units beneath polished granite work surfaces, integral Neff appliances and a two oven gas fired Aga. Off the kitchen is a large utility and walk-in pantry.
At first and second floor levels the layout is adaptable and currently provides spacious master and guest suites along with three further double bedrooms, a sitting room, a study and two additional bath/shower rooms.
Outside, Heath Worthy is surrounded by well maintained gardens and grounds with a variety of mature trees providing a high degree of privacy. The property is superbly equipped for equestrian use with an extensive range of stabling, large mange and over 11 acres of grazing sub-divided into paddocks. There is in addition garaging for three cars and ample parking.
Heath Worthy is approached through a set of electrically operated double timber entrance gates and via a tarmacadamed drive to a stone walled turning circle planted with a variety of flowers. The drive continues to a parking area on the north front and beyond to a rear drive with double timber gates and access onto Street Hey Lane. Adjacent to the drive is a detached garage constructed of brick with rough cast rendered elevations under a slate roof comprising Garage (6.1m x 3.66m) with store room off and loft over. Attached to the garage is a store, with, to the side two further garden stores. To the North West of the drive is a lawn surrounded by floral borders and well screened from the lane by stand of mature trees.
The formal gardens are situated to the South West of the house and are laid to lawn with a number of mature trees to include oak, sycamore, copper beech and chestnut. Attached to the house is a Greenhouse with, to the side, a flagged patio and BBQ area. A floral border subdivides the lawn and leads to a timber Summerhouse. Beyond the garden is an orchard.
The equestrian facilities are accessed from the main entrance and via a gravelled drive along the south of the garden well screened by a high conifer hedge.
