Full description

Without question one of the most striking houses in this part of Cheshire.
The Gables dates back to 1907 and was built for a member of a well known Warrington Industrialist family. Its distinctive style is Arts and Crafts by a local renowned architect and is redolent of the Tudor style of black and white half timbering with ornate scroll and brick work.
The house sits well in its large grounds of about 2 acres and has mature trees, lawns, beds, natural pond and water feature. The main house has 5 reception areas plus a magnificent kitchen recently fitted and the main house has up to 5 bedrooms and 3 bath/shower rooms.
In addition there is a self contained, attached cottage with a big living room/kitchen, double bedroom and dressing room served by a bathroom.
There is a quite remarkable leisure complex comprising garden room, gym, indoor heated swimming pool, good changing facilities.
There is extensive parking for both private vehicles and horse boxes and there is stabling and a manege within the grounds.
Whilst being essentially rural in area the access to the M6 and M56 is worth noting bringing as it does Liverpool and Manchester airports within half an hour. Liverpool, Manchester, Chester and Warrington are all easily commutable.
Thelwall is situated in North Cheshire 3 miles form Warrington. There are excellent road transport links with both the M6 and M56 about three miles from the village. Two major international airports Manchester and Liverpool are within reach in just 20/30 minutes and London is just 2 hours from a nearby train station.
Thelwall itself is a small suburban village with a wide mixture of modern and older houses of all styles and prices.
The village is on the edge of some of the county's most productive and attractive agricultural land where there are good facilities for riding, cycling and walking with all the other outdoor pursuits including a local golf course.
The village is well served by both the public sector and private schooling at all levels with The Grange and Cransley schools in easy reach by bus or car.
There are good facilities close by for shopping, restaurants and bars in Lymm, Grappenhall and Stockton Heath.
