BRIEF DESCRIPTION Hayes Farm is a three bedroomed detached home offering extensive outside space with stunning walled gardens and two paddocks which are ideal for equestrian use, as the farm has the benefit of a three stable block. The property enjoys dual access, off Mannings Lane and also Picton Gorse Lane, passing The Hammond School, with both entrances being gated with sweeping driveways which lead to the property. From the Mannings Lane entrance, the tarmac driveway passes through a walled garden with lawned sections and beautifully stocked borders as well as a mini orchard with a mature collection of plum and apple trees, and this driveway leads to the sizeable parking area the home enjoys. There is a collection of outbuildings, a detached garage and former farm buildings which potentially offer scope for further renovation (subject to any necessary building or planning consents). They are currently utilised as excellent storage facilities with one unit particularly also being used as a home office by our clients.

The property itself features three double bedrooms, all to the first floor, with the master and guest bedrooms both enjoying dressing areas upon entry to the room. Also to the first floor is a sizeable bathroom with a four piece suite with bath and separate shower enclosure. The ground floor accommodation is deceptively spacious in size and is accessed via a porch which links through to the reception hall, with an open tread timber staircase off to the first floor, and in total there are three reception rooms plus a conservatory, which welcomes in the walled garden to the home, and a dining kitchen and separate utility room. The living room is the principal room of the home, extending to over 19ft in length, and features an open brick fireplace and hearth which houses a cast iron wood burning stove. The dining room and family room offer flexibility of use as they could be utilised as ancillary ground floor bedrooms if desired as there is a downstairs shower room to supplement this possible need. The property benefits from gas central heating and is predominantly UPVC double glazed.  

LOCATION Hayes Farm is situated in a small and not so well known hamlet that is Hoole Bank which lies on the edge of open countryside whilst being highly convenient for Hoole, Newton and Mickle Trafford. It is only a short drive to the Chester southerly by pass which leads to the national motorway network and within walking distance of the private Hammond School.

EXTERNALLY Conveniently positioned close to excellent transport links to major road networks, Hayes Farm sits well within Hoole Bank on a generous plot with extensive grounds and can be approached via two entrances. The official postal address is positioned off Mannings Lane where there is a sandstone edged wall with conifer hedging with a part walled driveway passing a lawned section of garden to a five bar gate, which provides entry to the walled garden. The driveway continues through the most charming walled garden towards the main parking area which is to the front of the home. A further entrance is enjoyed off Picton Gorse Lane, passing the entrance to the neighbouring Hammond School (a revered college for performing arts), where there is a further five bar gate to a sweeping gravelled driveway, which passes the two paddocks associated with the property, passing a small area of woodland to a sizeable parking area positioned in front of the home. There is a detached garage and further detached outbuildings including a three stable block adjoined to a converted former cow store, and behind is an open wood/hay store. To the rear of the property is a gated courtyard area which features a bin store and there is outside lighting and water facilities. The gardens to the home lie to the right hand side of the property with a beautifully tended walled garden with a mini orchard of mature plum and apple trees and there is also a garden store and two greenhouses. Directly from the property itself, accessed from the conservatory and also the utility room, is a paved patio terrace with a pond water feature and pergola with steps up to an archway leading through to the lawned gardens, which features stocked borders and trees. The gardens truly are a joy to behold and should be popular with those who are green-fingered amongst us!
