Property Description

Full description

This is an amazing opportunity for someone to own a 5 bedroom equestrian farm/property offering great facilities. The property dates back to the 17th century and was later extended and has recently been modernised throughout by the present owners and is presented beautifully. The property is believed to be constructed using "ballast bricks" left behind in the port of Chester by Dutch traders when loading up with Welsh Fleece. The property itself comprises of an entrance hallway, lounge through dining room, play room, sitting room, fitted kitchen and utility room to the ground floor. To the first floor there are 5 bedrooms, the main with ensuite and a main family bathroom. The property is a great family sized home and offers the space both inside and out.
