Location

Chester 9 miles, Liverpool 26 miles, Manchester 30 miles, M56 Junction 14 3miles

Alvanley Hall occupies a prominent position in the countryside 0.25 miles to the south east of the village of Alvanley with far reaching views.

Alvanley lies on the rear slope of Helsby Hill, at the western end of the Cheshire Sandstone Ridge. It is only 3 miles from the market town of Frodsham and 9 miles from the historic city of Chester. Frodsham and Helsby offer a good balance of daily services and Chester has a comprehensive range of retail, commercial and leisure facilities. The M56 provides an excellent link with Chester, Liverpool and Manchester, and Liverpool Airport is about 21 miles away.

There are first class state and independent schools within easy reach, including a popular primary school in Alvanley, a well regarded secondary school in Helsby and King's and Queen's Schools in Chester.

Description

Alvanley Hall is a Grade II* listed building, principally constructed of red sandstone with mullioned windows and a slate roof, mainly dating from the 17th century. Two massive columns in the cellars, believed to be early medieval, may be evidence of a much earlier building on the site. The Hall has an interesting history and is an appealing family house.

An oak framed garden room was recently added as an extension to the kitchen which provides an excellent family living space to complement the more formal reception rooms.

The accommodation is arranged on three floors (plus the cellar),
as follows:

An oak front door opens into a hall with wood flooring, stairs to the first and second floors and doors to the reception rooms and cellars.

The music room has two window seats, fitted hardwood library shelves with cupboards beneath and a tv recess with matching hardwood surround.

The drawing room opposite has a substantial stone fireplace with a raised hearth and impressive iron dog grate. There are exposed beams in the ceiling. A small study provides a link to the kitchen.

The dining room is accessed from the hall and kitchen and is an
atmospheric room with a fitted display cabinet, and a fireplace with a slate mantelpiece.

The kitchen and garden room provide an excellent open plan space. There is a good range of fitted storage units, a breakfast bar and a Rangemaster cooker and Baumatic hob. The garden room has two sets of French doors, a Scandinavian log burner and under floor heating. Off the kitchen are a utility room and WC, and a porch and boot room.

Outside

The house is approached via a long private drive from Manley Road. The entrance to Alvanley Hall is clearly marked and the driveway leads to parking and turning areas at the front and rear of the house. At the rear is a large single storey range of domestic outbuildings. These provide useful storage and kennelling. An interesting feature is the former bread oven in the garden store.

The gardens, mainly to the south of the the house, are an outstanding part of the property. The Millenium garden with its symmetrical rose beds edged with box is approached by sandstone steps between wisteria clad balustrades and features sandstone formerly laid at Chester Cathedral. A weeping willow provides a lovely backdrop.

On the eastern side the garden room overlooks a rectangular lily pond framed by a beech hedge, with an adjacent rose and wisteria pergola. There is a vegetable garden with a fruit cage, borders with coniferous and perennial planting and an attractive small woodland on the easterly boundary.
