2 bedroom country house for sale
Lightwood Green, Nr Overton-On-Dee, LL13
A genuine period detached country house, of great character, in need of total renovation and modernisation works, standing in lovely gardens, with excellent pasture paddock with two stable blocks, extending, in all, to approximately 2.8 acres or thereabouts.
Halls are delighted with instructions to offer Newal House at Lightwood Green, Nr. Overton-on-Dee for sale by private treaty.
Newal House is a genuine period detached country house, in need of total renovation and modernisation works, with super gardens and an excellent adjacent pasture paddock, with two stable blocks, extending, in all, to approximately 2.8 acres or thereabouts.
The property, which is believed to date back, originally, to 1928, offers genuine internal accommodation of great charm and character, with immense potential for modernisation, improvement and/or extension into a first class family house. At present the accommodation comprises, a ground floor Sitting Room, Kitchen, Walk-in Pantry, Utility Room, together with a First Floor Landing, Bedroom 1, Bedroom 2 and Family Bathroom.
The gardens are an attractive feature of the property and lie principally to the side of the house down to a mature shaped lawn, flanked by floral and herbaceous and rose borders. The gardens lead through to an Orchard area, which slopes down to a wooded copse. The gardens have great potential, also, for further landscaping according to ones individual requirements.
There is an extensive range of Outbuildings, predominantly to the rear of the house, mainly down to garaging and former shippons, which, again, have great potential for alternative usage (subject to the necessary Local Authority planning consent).
The land is a major feature of Newal House and is retained within a single enclosure of permanent pasture, predominantly to the side and rear of the homestead. The land is ideal for the grazing of all kinds of livestock if required, particularly horses and includes a double and triple stable block.
The sale of Newal House does, therefore, provide an excellent and somewhat unusual opportunity to purchase a genuine detached country house of great charm and character, which requires total renovation and modernisation and has room for extension (subject to the necessary local authority consent) together with lovely gardens and land in this popular rural location.
Halls strongly recommend an inspection to appreciate the possibilities that this property has to offer, both internally and externally.
Newal House is situated in an attractive and unspoilt rural location in the heart of the North Shropshire/Clwyd Borderlands. Whilst enjoying the peace of its location, it is only 1.3 miles from the village of Overton-on-Dee, which has an excellent range of amenities for a village of its size, to include a Primary School, Doctors Surgery, Village Shops and Parish Church to name but a few. The property is also within easy motoring distance of the larger centres of Ellesmere (4.5 miles) and Wrexham (8.5 miles), both of which, have a wider range of amenities of all kinds. The county town of Chester is also only 21 miles away.
