Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Formerly part of the Foxhill Estate, Foxhill Farm is a charming Georgian farmhouse that overlooks delightful open countryside with excellent bridleway and footpaths nearby. It has a striking and distinctive individual appearance that impresses immediately. The buyer of the farmhouse has two choices.

Either to move into the farmhouse as existing
or undertake the renovation and extension scheme made possible by a comprehensive planning permission that was granted in the last six months.

The farmhouse stands in 0.707 acre with an additional area of 4.617 acres available to purchase.

As Existing:

The traditional red brick farmhouse offers accommodation suitable for smaller families. Entrance steps lead up to a substantial timber door, giving access to a reception hall and cloakroom with WC and washbasin. The kitchen has a range of wall and base units as well as a walk-in pantry. The adjacent dining room is a good size, and opens to a south-facing sun room which has large picture windows with stunning views and access to the gardens. A spacious drawing room spans the width of the house. It has a fireplace with a decorative timber mantle and the windows overlook the gardens. Stairs with an elegant rosewood banister rise to the first floor.

The master bedroom has wonderful views, a walk-in dressing room (which could be used as an extra bedroom), fitted cupboards and an en suite bathroom. There is another large double bedroom with fitted wardrobes, overlooking a pretty courtyard. A third/fourth bedroom, situated at the front of the house, is currently arranged as a guest room/study with a cast iron fireplace and views over the gardens and orchard. The family bathroom comprises a bath with shower over, WC and washbasin, and has a substantial loft room above.

The full accommodation is listed within the sales particulars below.

With Extension:

The second option is for an extension and renovation of the house so as to transform it into a very substantial family home extending in total size to circa 3200 square feet. Taking into account the permission for the garage with room over, the total permission extends to circa 3800 square feet

The planning permission that was obtained by the current client on Tuesday 18th November 2014 is to significantly extend and essentially transform the current home into a magnificent extended family home. Along with the provision of a large three car garage, additional accommodation above and a new driveway that will elegantly open up and transform the Georgian front of the property. Upon request the selling agent can e-mail through the full planning permission decision notice, site plan, ecology report and proposed floor plans. Alternatively this information can be obtained via the Cheshire West and Chester planning portal under the reference 14/01537/FUL (Two-storey side extension and detached double garage with car port) which itself is an amendment to 13/04927/FUL.

If completed as proposed, the revised layout would offer a first class living environment for a growing family. At ground floor level there would be four reception rooms in addition to a large open plan kitchen. Further practicality would be provided via a boot room, utility area, study and large welcoming reception hall. At first floor level there would be five bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Externally the planning permission provides for a new driveway, large triple garage, store room and extra accommodation above.
Whilst capital expenditure would be required to create this end result, buyers can invest safe in the knowledge that the area has historically achieved very high end values and residential property of quality is always in demand.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS (AND OPTIONAL LAND)
Foxhill Farm has the benefit of excellent gardens and grounds, that have lovely views over surrounding countryside and enjoy impressive levels of seclusion and privacy. (In addition to the land that is being offered with the property as demonstrated in the land plan, there is additional land available that would form part of an additional negotiation).

The gardens that surround the house are absolutely delightful yet easily maintained. A good size lawn at the front has a hedged border, dividing it from an orchard which hosts a variety of specially low grown fruit trees. There are also a number of raised beds and a herb garden. The gardens are of relatively flat gradient and also offer the potential to be further adapted to suit individual requirements with the potential for tennis court or swimming pool (subject to planning consents being granted).

The additional acreage could also benefit from stabling in the east corner of the field with separate lane access


 

LOCATION The farmhouse is set in an idyllic rural position with super far reaching views over surrounding countryside. Whilst appearing to be almost completely rural with wonderful walks and fantastic views surrounding, the property is surprisingly well located for day to day commuting and travelling purposes. An extensive road system can be easily accessed leading to the M53, M56, M6, A49 and A556. It is also close to the historic City of Chester and the nearby market town of Frodsham which provides a comprehensive range of leisure and shopping facilities and in the area as a whole there are excellent private and state schools nearby.

It should also be noted that Manchester and Liverpool International Airports are accessed within 30 minutes drive whilst railway services from Frodsham, Chester, Crewe, Hartford and other nearby stations provide impressive UK links.

With regards to education, there are an excellent array of schools in both the private and state sectors with comfortable travelling distance of the house. These include Helsby High School, Kings, Queens and Abbeygate in Chester, the Grange in Hartford and the fast growing Sir John Dean's College, one of the leading Sixth Form colleges in this part of the North West.
