Gwern Y To Farm is in a stunning position set a considerable distance from the lane from Shocklach to Threapwood. It is in a wonderful mature private setting framed by trees but with open westerly views over countryside to the Welsh Hills.

The picturesque English country village of Malpas (3.7 miles) offers a good range of day to day services, including well regarded primary and secondary schools and a more comprehensive range of commercial, leisure and retail services is offered by Chester (14.6 miles). There are excellent independent schools in the area including King's and Queen's Chester, Moreton Hall girls school, Ellesmere College.

Nearby Carden Park offers championship golf courses as well as hotel based health and fitness facilities. There is horse racing at Bangor-on-Dee and Chester.


Planning consent was granted on 5th August 2015 (Code Number P/2015/0434) for "Demolition of existing house and shippon and erection of new 5 bedroom family house and refurbishment of existing stable barn building".

The consent provides for a stunning new home incorporating elements of traditional design in the front elevation and a more modern rear with extensive glazing to allow maximum light and the appreciation of the wonderful views. The internal layout provides flexible spaces ideally suited for contemporary living, with a large open plan family kitchen, three reception rooms and bi folding doors opening onto a terrace. On the first floor are two bedroom suites with dressing rooms and bathrooms, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom and a separate wc.

The pretty detached traditional barn is suitable for a variety of
uses (some of which may require planning consent). These include conversion for stabling, a home office, leisure suite, home cinema or an annexe.

Gwern Y To Farm has enough acreage to be registered as an agriculture holding, and thus could qualify for annual RPA payments.

The 13 acres of land is divided into three fields and is in grass. They provide a wonderful opportunity for equestrian or small scale farming uses, alternatively the land could provide a rental income.

Services The property is understood to be connected to mains water and electricity. However, interested parties should make their own enquiries of the appropriate Statutory/Utility Authorities.

Health and Safety All viewings are to be accompanied by staff from Savills or Cavendish Residential and arranged by prior appointment.
