Full description

An outstanding detached period residence, Roughlands sits elevated upon an impressive plot of approximately 3.5 acres, from where the most breath taking uninterrupted views across the Dee Estuary to the North Wales coastline are to be absorbed. Coming to market for only the third time since its construction in 1928, the property is one of a small number built on the former Ismay Estate of Dawpool Hall and Titanic fame, in a much sought-after area of the Wirral peninsula bordering National Trust land.

Approached via a double gated, stone pillared entrance, the sweeping driveway leads to the portico entrance into the house where the beautifully presented accommodation comprises of three principal reception rooms all with outstanding views, to include the drawing room which has an attractive fireplace, sitting room with an open fireplace with a stone hearth and the well-proportioned dining room which boasts wonderful panelling to all walls. The light filled breakfast kitchen is fitted with an excellent range of cupboards and a 4-oven Aga, Belfast sink, kitchen island with a granite work surface, in-built dishwasher and fridge/freezer. The room enjoys a delightful aspect to the rear with a charming sitting/dining area and a glazed door to the lawned side garden. The study has been beautifully furbished, with panelled walls with the inner-hall and boot room completing the ground floor accommodation. The substantial master bedroom suite has two walk-in closets, an en suite shower room and large terrace from where the exceptional outlook towards the Dee Estuary can be enjoyed. There are in addition, four further bedrooms two of which have benefit from en suite facilities.

The extensive sandstone terrace extends across the rear of the property with steps descending to the stunning sun terrace from where the breath taking vista can be taken in. In turn, twin sweeping staircases descend down from the upper terrace through tiered gardens, planted with a range of mature shrubs, including magnificent rhododendrons. The lower lawn is bordered by mature hedges and gives access to the tennis court and pavilion. The grounds also incorporate a rock garden, with an ornamental pond and a paved path leading up through woodland to the parking area. The approximate 3.5 acre plot provides an excellent sense of privacy and seclusion. External lighting illuminates the garden at night.

There are excellent transport links nearby, with both Liverpool and Manchester airports within easy reach. Both Liverpool Lime Street and Chester have direct train service to London Euston.

The Wirral offers an excellent range of leisure pursuits including sailing on the Dee Estuary, golf at Hoylake and Caldy, and horse racing at Chester and Aintree.
