Full description

Ever thought of an alternative way to build your pension reserve? Come to that, have you ever thought of building your own house, or two? Or holding on to that potential for your future retirement? For Ha'pennyfield potentially offers some, or all of the above and/or some considerably private and secluded existing accommodation...

Not that either we, on behalf of our client, nor themselves have submitted a planning application, although we do have it on good authority there's a more than a reasonable chance of securing such approval. Otherwise said advisor wouldn't have gone to the bother of sketching up a couple of 'drawings', images of which you'll see below on our slide-show.

Regardless of those opportunities, we trust that the intro' suggests Ha'pennyfield does indeed sit in a considerable garden plot, and south to south west facing too. That could be one good valid reason our clients have remained in situ the last 30 odd years or so - that and the excellent, prime location along the quiet, inconspicuous road of Noctorum Lane.

This house was built in the late fifties. Our clients are just the second owners, that again speaks volumes about all those aspects of a house that make you stay. Three clear aspects to the house we observed on our first few visits: the amount of natural light that creates an especially bright home, (of course its south westerly rear aspect and wide garden space to the east accentuates this), the somewhat unusual for its time open plan nature of living space; and in fairness the few upgrades required to bring it into line for another good thirty years, upgrades reflected in the asking price...

And there lies the extra exciting opportunity. To remodel, maybe, or retain a foot print that is today considered vogue; to extend any which way - ample room and land on at least three sides to the house; or to add a little to, to maximise further the views, if possible of ,this well protected, private garden plot by means of an orangery, conservatory and or balcony perhaps.

A fairly substantial and welcoming entrance hall: cloakroom off to the right, access direct on to the living room, left to the stairs and beyond to the kitchen; an entrance that offers a glimpse straight through the living room to the garden. Walk into this living room and experience a rare mix of light, space and comfort: a Southern European like design of combined family living. Few spaces can offer living space, an area for more intimate morning coffee and a grand central space for dining, all in one. And all quarters enjoying deep windows or doorways to the garden.

Access the kitchen and open plan morning room via the dining area or hall. The kitchen is the first to enjoy the morning sun. That requires more large windows - see the kitchen photos. The morning room also leads out east side to a particularly large patio area that wraps around the house to almost where the sun goes down....

Of course, tucked away off the kitchen is a utility room and further outdoor access and this time that's to the double carport but a handy way in for the dog too.

Upstairs and there are five bedrooms, en suite and dressing room facilities to the main bedroom as well as a recently refurbished 'family' bathroom. The larger bedroom of all is the room behind the 'master' suite. It has the best view across the garden and over to the welsh hills (clear day assumed). Here's the potential of that balcony.

So thirty three years on and there's been a lot of entertaining. Because the owners are that kind of people and the house is, well, that kind of house, given the acres of indoor open plan space, together with the most fantastic of family gardens. In fact more than adequate for the recent family wedding celebrations and marquee that stood appropriately and immediately adjacent to the house, south east side of the house, where there's so much width between Ha'pennyfield and next door.

And there lies the opportunity for now or the future, perhaps. Our drawings shown below show the possible access down this wide 'runway' of a side garden that the local authority may consider appropriate for access to one large or two smaller building plots to the south west of the house. (Once again, for clarification, no approach to the Planning Dept, has been made at this stage - but if you can see the opportunities, so maybe they can too). The drawings show modest sized detached houses of just1,200 and 1,400 sq'.

Back full circle and to reiterate how much the Lewis family have enjoyed this touch of seclusion and enormous amount of open space. Rumour has it they bought all those years ago at dusk and hadn't fully appreciated the extent of the garden until the sale had completed - now that's 'added value'....

Locator - Unusually, we've taken a photo of outside of the plot too; of Noctorum Lane, depicting what we believe is a rather sedate, tranquil part of Noctorum that's unlikely to change for another thirty years or so. There's a nice stroll for the weekend from here along the road in a north westerly direction where the lane runs parallel to Wirral Ladies' GC. Monday to Friday and the children can walk or cycle to School (BHSA & Birkenhead School). For Sat Nav: CH43 9UE
