Old Penley Mill House is a five bedroomed detached period country house with a number of equestrian facilities to include 11 horse boxes, a manege and conveniently sized paddocks extending to approximately 6 acres, or thereabouts, situated in a pleasant semi-rural location a short distance from the popular village of Penley.

The property has been completely refurbished during the current vendors occupation and provides spacious accommodation to include, on the ground floor, a Reception Hall, Living Room, Dining Room, Sitting Room, Family Room, Kitchen, Utility Room, Cloakroom and downstairs Shower Room together with 5 First Floor Bedrooms and a Family Bathroom. The property benefits from an oil fired central heating system, double glazed windows and is presented for sale with the fitted carpets included in the purchase price.

Outside, the property is complimented by an extensive yard to one side providing ample parking and manoeuvring space for both cars and commercial vehicles and lawned rear gardens with a concrete patio area providing an ideal space for outdoor entertaining. There are a number of fruit trees and a stream providing a pleasant setting.

There are a number of outbuildings situated to one side of the property which have been improved and adapted to provide equestrian facilities to include a total of 11 boxes, a store area and secure tack room. There is a traditional brick barn which has immense scope for conversion in to a holiday cottage/annex, subject to Local Authority Planning Consent.

The land is, currently, divided in to six paddocks with mature hedge boundaries and internal post and rail fencing. Is mainly level with one paddock, to the rear of the stable yard, forming an attractive bank. There is a sand based manege.

The sale of Old Penley Mill House does, therefore, provide an extremely rare opportunity for purchasers, particularly equestrians, to acquire such a well equipped equestrian holding extending to approximately 6 acres, situated in this pleasant semi-rural location.

Situation

Old Penley Mill House is situated just over 1 mile from the popular village of Penley. Penley is well known for its Primary and Secondary Schools, the latter of which includes a Sixth Form and Sports Centre.

The larger centres also of Whitchurch (8 miles) and Wrexham (10 miles) are both also within easy motoring distance, both of which have a more comprehensive range of amenities of all kinds.

The Directions

From Ellesmere proceed on the A528 on Grange Road, in the direction of Overton. After approximately 1 mile turn right signposted 'Penley'. Continue along this lane for approximately 1.1 miles and turn left down 'Lions Lane' for approximately 1.3 miles and turn right down a private driveway passing Penley Mill Garage on the left hand side and the property will be found on the left hand side.

N.B. We have been asked, by the vendor, to point out that the nearby MOT/repair garage does NOT cause a disturbance and would urge prospective purchasers to visit the property during trading hours to appreciate this for themselves.
