Property Description

Full description



From the traffic lights in Heswall centre take The Mount and Dee View Road and at the wide junction proceed across Thurstaston Road down Delavor Road turning first left into Farr Hall Road, right into Farr Hall Drive and take the left hand fork where 'Wade Cottage' will be located on the right hand side.


The sale of 'Wade Cottage' presents a rare re-development opportunity in one of Heswall's most sought after residential locations amongst other high calibre detached properties of considerable individuality. The current constraints of the West Wirral planning moratorium leave the replacement of an existing dwelling as the answer to creating a brand new home and 'Wade Cottage' can be completely re-developed with a brand new five bedroom detached house of approximately 5600 sq.ft. Planning permission for the replacement was granted under application no: APP/11/00308 on 22<sup>nd</sup> June 2011. Inspection of 'Wade Cottage' is considered essential for full appreciation of the extent and location of this superb mature plot combined with the views to the Dee Estuary and Welsh Hills.

The proposed new dwelling will be arranged around a central reception hall and includes three reception rooms, study and a magnificent 26ft living kitchen together with five double bedrooms, balcony and two en-suites. The thoughtful design ensures magnificent views from all the principal rooms and features bi-folding doors, balcony and floor to ceiling glazed gabled windows.

The location is ideal for access to local shops and amenities in Heswall Lower Village including St. Peter's and Gayton primary schools with principal shops, services and restaurants in Heswall centre. There are delightful walks from the property with a wide range of recreational facilities within the area and an established network of roads including the M53 and M56 motorways afford commuting links to major centres of employment in the North West.
