Full description

Are you fed up with looking at run-of-the-mill properties on housing estates and yearn for something that little bit special? If so, look no further!

Actually, you may find that if you are not already a gardening enthusiast, then you may soon become one as this delightful detached bungalow barn conversion occupies a large plot, adjoining woodland and is enclosed by mature mellow brick walls - fantastic!! Alternatively, if you don't have green fingers, you could consider a tennis court as there is easily enough room, in addition to the formal garden. So, what we actually have here is the solitude of established gardens, complete with brick stable block, sheds and greenhouses and the feeling that you could be miles from anywhere. In reality, there are neighbours ( so there is a real sense of belonging within a select community, should you so desire) and the property is accessed via a communal courtyard and then, on through the electrically operated five bar gate. The tall, private gates into the driveway, when closed, ensure that you are cocooned into your own 'little world'.

Without a shadow of doubt, an internal inspection is strongly recommended. There is an adaptable accommodation layout and whereas the existing owners do not require as many bedrooms as some buyers may prefer, there is ample scope to create a fourth bedroom in lieu of the study by simply adding a stud wall. It was completely renovated in 2006 and the impressive split-level reception hall with its part polished paved flagstone floor (which also continues into the kitchen) immediately creates a favourable impression. The living room is equally impressive with its wide exposed brick fireplace and log burning stove and the L-shaped kitchen/family room also has rustic features including a brick inglenook which houses a Rayburn cooker. The garden room is not only spacious, but does literally take you into that walled garden and has an atrium style double glazed roof. Both bedrooms are doubles, one having an en-suite bathroom, whilst the master bedroom has a wealth of exposed beams. As previously stated, the gardens are a delight (including the landscaped front garden) and there is ample car parking, in addition to 2 inter-linked carports. Central heating is by way of an air sourced heat pump and there is an independent Biodisc sewage treatment system, all of which helps to keep running costs to a minimum.

It is located close to the Cheshire/Welsh/Shropshire borders and whilst enjoying a delightful semi-rural position (with the local shop just along the road), it is particularly well placed for larger towns including Whitchurch (approximately 9 miles), Chester (approximately 15 miles), Malpas (approximately 3.5 miles), Wrexham (approximately 7 miles) and Liverpool (approximately 37 miles).

In summary, this unique property is spotlessly neat, clean and tidy and has a huge amount to offer. You may have heard this phrase before, but it genuinely does need to be viewed to be appreciated!
