Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This interesting and individual detached house enjoys superb open views and a mature, established plot of 0.33 acre. Offered for sale with no on-going and offering significant potential, a viewing is strongly recommended.

As presently configured, the house comprises a three bedroom, two reception room detached residence, set in mature gardens and enjoying lovely views. There is though obvious scope to adapt, enhance and significantly extend the house so as to create an outstanding family home.

All relevant permissions would be required from the local authority to extend the house - but given that planning consent already exists for the demolition of the present dwelling and replacement with a new one (Cheshire West and Chester Council Ref No. 15/1481N - May 2015) there is a strong likelihood than an ambitious scheme could be successfully applied for.

The beauty of the opportunity is the flexibility that is offered. The house at present is a functioning family home that can be occupied immediately. Thereafter, there is fantastic potential to create a substantial contemporary dwelling by virtue of either a single or double storey extension.

Goldford Lane is a renowned residential location within the locality of Bickerton. It is easily one of the county's most pretty and unspoilt locations with wonderful far reaching southerly views over south Cheshire and Shropshire and accessed to some of the finest walks in the county along the Bickerton hills and via the Sandstone Trail; quite literally on the doorstep.

The Bickerton area and more particularly Goldford Lane have become much sought-after in recent times, with the creation of some very fine individual homes. Indeed, an adjacent neighbour to the subject development site recently sold for £2m and several other high quality homes have been created; underpinning the value which this unique opportunity offers. 

LOCATION Bickerton and Broxton are renowned for their natural beauty and proximity to surrounding countryside. The villages of Malpas, Tattenhall and Tarporley are close by, being 5 and 9 miles away respectively. All three offer a wide range of excellent day to day amenities. For those with educational requirements the house stands within the catchment area for the highly regarded Church of England Bickerton Primary School and the Bishop Heber High School in Malpas rated Outstanding by Ofsted in 2011 and continuing to achieve excellent results on a consistent basis.

Bickerton also provides a convenient and central base for the business traveller, in addition to the extensive road links leading to the M56, M6, A49 and A51 there are also railway stations at Crewe, Chester and Whitchurch. Manchester and Liverpool International Airports can both be accessed in less than an hour's drive. The extensive amenities of Chester City and Shrewsbury can be accessed within 20 - 30 minutes drive respectively.


The area as a whole is ideal for those who enjoy rural living with walks in Bulkeley Hill Wood, Bickerton Hills and the Sandstone Trail readily accessible. The National Trust have recently taken over the management and ownership of many of these walkways thereby providing future protection as to the use of the land. In terms of Pubs and Restaurants, the Bickerton Poacher, Egerton Arms, Dysart Arms, Yew Tree Inn and the Pheasant at Burwardsley are all within a short travelling distance. Bickerton also has a Parish Church and for those with leisure interest, there is a golf and fitness facility at Carden Park Gold Club and Spa and a further golf club at Aldersey. The area is also ideal for those who enjoy mountain biking, dog walking and horse riding.
