EXCELLENT DETACHED HOUSE WITH VIEWS AND OUTBUILDING Enjoying fabulous views of open countryside to both front and rear - a fine detached house of considerable character and appeal with the additional benefit of detached garage and workshop within the grounds. Accommodation comprising: Entrance hall, living/dining room, sitting room, family room, kitchen and utility room. First floor: Five bedrooms and family bathroom. Externally: Beautiful landscaped gardens, sweeping gravelled driveway, detached garage and workshop in addition to superb views to the rear over open countryside. Rare opportunity to purchase a period house close to the commercial centres of Chester and Wrexham.

Orchard house is a distinctive and most individual detached residence located in a location that maximises its views to the front and rear over open countryside. The house's external environment is beautifully split into different parts including formal garden and sweeping gravel driveway that leads to a garage/workshop. There is also a paddock which is available under separate negotiation.

Internally the accommodation is extremely spacious. At ground floor level the accommodation opens with an entrance hall from which access can be gained to a utility room/WC and the kitchen/breakfast area. There are three further reception rooms thereafter each of which has its own individual character and appeal. The study is a versatile room which could be used for a number of different purposes whilst the reception hall has stairs rising to the first floor and a feature cast iron fireplace. Without question though, the highlight of the ground floor is the drawing room that is cleverly split into a living and dining areas and has many noticeable features including light from three sides and a quite wonderful Cheshire brick fireplace with semi-circular curves.

At first floor level there are five bedrooms, with the master being of a particularly impressive size. The bedrooms are served by a family bathroom.

All in all the house has been carefully maintained by our clients through the years but would envisage that future purchasers may wish to enhance and develop the existing accommodation to a more contemporary yet tasteful specification. Obvious areas that could be developed would include the extension of the breakfast kitchen to a larger open plan space to fully take advantage of the views over the spectacular gardens and a general updating of decor to suit individual requirements. Likewise, at first floor level it is envisaged that future purchasers may wish to create an extra bathroom due to the excellent square footage on offer or possibly even reduce the number of bedrooms so as to create a smaller number of bigger sized rooms. All these exciting possibilities do not preclude the potential to immediately move into the house with the minimal of inconvenience.

The gardens, grounds and views from Orchard House are absolutely outstanding. There is superb landscaped gardens whilst mainly laid to lawn also contain a variety of flowering plants and young trees. The gardens have a remarkable level of privacy and to the rear overlook open countryside.

To the front of the house opposite there are views of open countryside and it should also be noted that the property's price is at an extremely competitive level and is open to sensible negotiation partly to reflect the fact that the property is located off the A534.

An exceptional feature of Orchard House is the garage and detached workshop. This excellent space could be used for a number of different purposes including business purposes and recreational space with the potential to create for example a pool/teenagers games room or even independent annexe subject to the necessary planning permissions being granted.

Barton is located near to Clutton. A delightful and quiet backwater, Clutton has a first class Primary School within walking distance to nearby Tilston which has a highly regarded public house, shop, school and Church.

Even with such tranquility on the doorstep, a comprehensive road network system can be reached within minutes, with key roads such as the A41, A49, A55, M6 and M56 bringing Liverpool, Manchester, north Wales and the Midlands within commutable distance. Likewise, there are excellent rail links in Wrexham, Chester and Crewe, while Manchester and Liverpool International Airports are within an hours' drive.
