Full description

Occasionally, very occasionally, we'll start with the outside of the property just to make the point...and this particular point is self explanatory. If we used 'twittter' for the main marketing of this house, our 140 characters would go something like this: Garden junkies only, tree huggers too. Much loved and to be loved woodland garden of immense proportions. Hashtag; developers need not apply. Beautiful retreat.

For this is a large garden in anyone's estimation. Especially so, for this modern detached house stands elevated and at the top of this development; albeit a considerably small development of not many houses at all. How this particularly house inherited such a vastness of open space, is much down to the lines of Pine as to anything or anyone else...

So what's the catch? Well, there isn't one that we can see, just a considerable amount of garden to enjoy. The rear boundary borders the private drive of Mere Hall; the northern part of the garden extends to a point sheltering the houses along the edge of Ince Close, with the house frontage, (south facing) standing out high and proud from the other homes within the cul de sac. The land to the south and west of the house finally slopes off to a tiered rockery, and the garden abuts the impressive sandstone wall. Beyond the wall is the garden to Mere Hall.

Of course, if the developers had been able to get their hands on all this land, they could well have built another three or four detached homes for sure. That, perhaps, gives you a measure of just how big this garden is.

So, in this too often, damp, north-west region of the country, how best to enjoy your garden view other than adding a conservatory? And our clients did just that, however, they decided to throw the kitchen sink at it - almost - in terms of scale, size and accessibility (as well as adding heating). For what they have had built allows garden and house to be one... Even in the rain. The clear glass roof makes the view that much more dramatic; the fact the conservatory wraps around the house to the garden-side and doubles as a perfect hide for watching garden wild life as much as it does for offering more living space, dining space and/or recreational space, or even all three at once - see photos.

Given the width and scale of the conservatory there are two pairs of patio doors that lead through to the house, as well as two to the garden. That allows for good flow from one space to the other and is perfect for family party use.

The main living room of the house is a through room and has patio doors to a front balcony area as well as to the conservatory. The dining space within the house is a room that is open plan with the kitchen, yet is as separate as can be given the design.

For this is a galley style kitchen. Bright too and nicely fitted with granite style work tops and the usual integrated appliances (hob, double oven and dishwasher). The kitchen was refurbished and refitted not so long ago.

From the kitchen and dining space, back to the hall and across to the living room to one side of the stairs, or to the cloakroom just past the porch, to the other. The stairs are central to first floor leading to upstairs and to four bedrooms.

The main bedroom has extensive wardrobe furniture and pleasant en suite facilities. There are two further double bedrooms, with the front bedrooms having quite an extensive southerly view; and with bedroom four, a single bedroom to the rear of the house and adjacent to a smart recently refurbished shower room.

The house has the benefit of solar panels too. There is a 2.99kW installation attracting the highest available FIT feed in tariff, worth circa £30k over the next 20 years. Full ownership transfers to the new owners with the property. The FIT income not only offsets the energy bills but reduces electricity metered usage and exports surplus power to the grid which earns a payment too on a 50/50 basis based on metered production. Since installation in August 2011 the system has repaid more than £7000 of the original investment, future payments are index linked with inflation so their value escalates quite nicely year-on-year accordingly.

You will want to know that the house also has cavity wall insulation, water supply is run via a meter, that the loft to the house is partly boarded with ladder and that the garage benefits from a remote control opener and has useful storage shelving.

Back outside and to a little more specific detail. Look out for the dual parking and double garage to the right hand side of the house. Or the chimneyed BBQ, set within the patio area behind which is a ornamental pond. (Please appreciate that these photos were taken between 9.00 and 10.00am with the summer's sun still rising in the front of the house).There's a sizeable shed high up within the garden too along with a second shed in the garden were the current owners store their ride-on mower and areas within the garden that you may consider developing into vegetable patches.

Conclusions - We hope we've given a fair view of the nature of this property sale. A sale that will inevitably be determined by your love of the outdoors; the appreciation of trees and of all things private and peaceful.

Locator - Once you've prised yourself out of the garden and found the children somewhere or other in the garden, it's good to know that school is not too far away at all. (There are a good selection of primary and secondary all very close by - a few mins by car). For Sat Nav: CH43 2GE
