Tenure: Freehold

A charming and superbly proportioned family house occupying a rural setting with far reaching views over the surrounding countryside


Lower Rackery House occupies a peaceful location set well back from the lane and in a slightly elevated setting with far reaching views over the surrounding countryside. It is conveniently placed for the nearby villages of Higher Kinnerton and Rossett which both provide local services for everyday needs, with Wrexham and the historic city of Chester a short distance away providing a comprehensive range of shopping, schooling and leisure facilities, complimented by several out of town retail parks.

The house is less than eight miles away from the King's School, Chester. There are primary schools in Higher Kinnerton and Rossett and several other private and state schools within easy reach, including Bishop Heber at Malpas, Queens in Chester, Abbeygate College at Saighton and The Grange School at Hartford. Sporting activities are well catered for with several golf courses nearby including Carden Park and Chester, a variety of clubs in and around the city and racing at Chester and Bangor on Dee.


Despite occupying a rural location Lower Rackery House benefits from excellent road communications being approximately 2 miles from the A483 Wrexham by pass which connects with the Chester southerly by pass facilitating access along the north Wales coast and east to the M53 and M56 motorways.

The Wrexham Industrial Estate, Chester Business Park and Deeside Industrial Park are all within daily commuting distance as are the larger centres of Liverpool and Manchester which are both served by International Airports. There is also a direct rail service from Chester to London Euston via Crewe.


Lower Rackery House is an attractive period house which is believed to date from the 18th century albeit having been substantially extended more recently. The house is constructed of brick with part rendered elevations under a slated roof and has a well-proportioned front façade with detailed brickwork and chimney stacks at either side.

In recent years the house has been subject to various improvements including double glazed windows, new boiler, upgraded bathrooms and state of the art insulation in certain parts of the house. It has however retained much detail and character with exposed ceiling timbers, hardwood floors, period doors, some open fireplaces and a new wood-burner in the sitting room.

The accommodation is well laid out and ideally suited for family living. From the hall there is access to two of the reception rooms and beyond the dining room there is access into the lounge which has a large brick fireplace. All three rooms have an open aspect over the front gardens. From the hall a small flight of steps provides access to a large study which has fitted desks and shelving.

At the rear of the house is the kitchen/breakfast room which has a tiled floor and French doors opening out to a terrace and secluded, south facing walled garden. The kitchen incorporates a range of wall and floor units with cupboards and drawers beneath work surfaces, twin bowl sink with mixer, integrated dishwasher and fridge and a Cannon range-cooker comprising double oven, grill and plate warmer beneath 6 ring LPG hob. There is also a craftsman made cabinet with cupboards, drawers and shelving. Accessed off the kitchen is the utility room which accommodates the boiler and has internal access to the garage, which itself has two pairs of timber doors to outside.

At first floor level the accommodation is equally spacious and comprises 5 double bedrooms, one of which has part restricted height, and three bath/shower rooms, two of which are en-suite.


The property is approached via a stone splayed entrance and over a cattle grid and gravel drive to a parking area to the side of the house adjacent to which is the double garage. The drive is flanked by a lawn on one side and orchard on the other. In front of the house the lawn sweeps down to wrought iron railings and is shielded from the lane by a mature beech hedge and silver birch trees.

To the side and rear of the house is an extremely private walled garden and terrace which can be accessed directly from the kitchen and there are also 2 garden stores. A path leads from this area around the rear of the house where there are raised beds, a further store, oil tank and access back to the drive.


Mains water and electricity. Private tank drainage. Broadband connection available. Oil fired central heating.
