Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This excellent cottage in Bowling Bank is a rare and very welcome addition to the market. It has been lived in by the present owner for 21 years and has been superbly extended and lovingly restored. The building is of immense character and appeal dating back to the 16th Century and the Grade II Listing protects and preserves some of the important features found within the dwelling, not least an original ceiling beam in the principal living room. Despite the listing the present owners have managed to extend the property significantly in a very sympathetic manner so as to blend period features with more modern contemporary refinements and an excellent layout that is incredibly flexible.

The accommodation is focused around a large reception hall in the middle of the house that is accessed down the side of the driveway. The reception hall is in itself a fantastic room having a vaulted ceiling, exposed brickwork and timbers, a terracotta tiled floor and aspects to the garden. The ground floor accommodation can be utilised in a number of different ways to suit the differing requirements of prospective purchasers. The kitchen is sure to be of great appeal to many having cream Shaker style units and attractive wood block preparation surfaces. A framed opening from the kitchen leads through to the dining/family room that has wonderful views over the garden and more than ample space for a large table and chairs and/or sofas/easy chairs. There is a separate reception room accessed off the reception hall in these details referred to as the sitting room and this room is not only of a good proportion but also has a feature fireplace as its focal point. The unquestionable highlight of the ground floor space is the original living room at the front of the property. Within this room there is a feature inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove and the aforementioned beam of huge historical interest and significance. The room has many other features of original character and charm and really does provide the focal point of ground floor living with a great sense of coziness and appeal.

Next to the living room is a smaller reception room that would make for a perfect snug/study and is presently utilised by the vendor as a dining room. There is further ground floor accommodation which comprises a high quality bathroom with full shower enclosure, side hall, inner hall and very useful utility room.

The first floor accommodation is accessed from two separate staircases, one from the living room and one from the reception hall. The staircase from the reception hall leads up to a central landing that gives access to two bedrooms and a shower room. Both bedrooms have the benefit of a walk in wardrobe and are of good proportion. The staircase from the living room leads to a most wonderful master bedroom that is a large double and has immense features of character and period detail. From the bedroom access can be gained to a compact but well appointed shower room and bedroom four. Bedroom four has the obvious potential to be converted to a dressing so as to create a luxurious overall master suite or alternatively a nursery for those with a young child.

In total the accommodation extends to a very substantial square footage and prospective purchasers will doubtless enjoy optimising the layout to suit their own requirements.

Externally the property continues to impress with a 0.4 acre plot that is in itself mature, private and impressive but also has the benefit of adjoining open countryside so thus as wonderful views. There is ample off road parking to the side and the front and an impressive brick built detached double garage. The gardens are principally laid to lawn and thus are straight forward to maintain.

This property is a complete one off. It is located in an excellent position that feels completely rural yet is an ideal base for commuting to Chester, Wrexham, Shrewsbury and further afield. A viewing is encourage to fully understand its quality, character, history and layout, all of which are worthy of the highest levels of approbation. 

LOCATION Bowling Bank is a very desirable rural location situated on the South/East of Wrexham being about five miles away. Wrexham provides a commercial centre of shops, schools and local amenities, and the pretty village of Holt is a similar distance away. Bowling Bank has good road links to both Whitchurch to the South and Nantwich to the East. Within walking distance of the house is a parish Church, community centre and primary school.
