BRIEF DESCRIPTION Believed to have been constructed in the 1820s, this fine period residence falls within the conservation area of Holt and offers a plethora of character period features throughout the home, and our clients have tried to remain true to this when sympathetically upgrading the property. An exciting feature which the home has to offer is the basement area where there are five individual compartments which offer development opportunity, subject to any necessary planning or building consents, into habitable living accommodation.

The property from the roadside is approached via a pedestrian gate bisecting a lawned section of garden which extends to the right hand side of the property, and further on from this is a private driveway for the property leading to a detached garage with a further grassed parking area to the side. The property can be accessed from the front and from the side where there is a side porch with a small seating terrace in front.

The entrance hall to the property, accessed via a wooden door with glazed window panel and half moon named window unit above, features Minton tiled flooring leading to the inner hallway, with engineered oak flooring, spindled staircase off to the first floor accommodation and access to the aforementioned basement level. In total, there are three reception rooms, the sitting room featuring an exposed brick fireplace which houses a cast iron wood burning stove, and across the hallway is a dining room, again with period cast iron fireplace. Three out of the four windows in both the sitting and dining rooms feature period wooden shutters. The further reception room is a family room which could easily be used as an ancillary bedroom or a suite as it is positioned close to the downstairs shower room, which features a three piece white suite, ideal for a teenager or an older family member seeking independence from the rest of the home. Completing the accommodation on the ground floor is a breakfast kitchen which features stunning appointment with an extensive range of painted Shaker style timber units with brass fitments and granite work surfaces and upstands, some integrated appliances and a standout 'Rangemaster' dual fuelled double oven.

On the first floor, there is a landing area featuring a spindled balustrade and built-in linen cupboard and also there is a window to the half landing area. There are three double bedrooms to the first floor, with the master bedroom featuring an en-suite shower room fitted with a modern white suite, and completing the accommodation on this floor is a recently upgraded bathroom with beautiful appointment and featuring a ball and claw style standalone roll top bath and separate shower cubicle. Double glazing is installed at the property and there is gas central heating via a replacement 'Worcester' gas combination boiler. 

LOCATION Holt lies almost equidistant from Chester and Wrexham and there is an excellent range of quality independent day-to-day amenities within the village as well as good local shopping, public houses and restaurants. Nearby there is a beautiful old church and pleasant walks can be enjoyed along the banks of the River Dee with the equally characterful Cheshire village of Farndon being on the other side of the historic Grade I listed Medieval bridge.
