The Barn House, Manley is located in an extraordinary position that is difficult to better. The property forms part of a select development of high quality individual properties. Set in grounds of three quarters of an acre and enjoying magnificent open views to the rear a viewing is absolutely essential to appreciate not only the size and quality of the rooms but also the great atmosphere and overall appeal of this superb family home. Below is listed the breadth and quality of the internal accommodation and external environment - it should though also be noted that the new owners will benefit from the high quality solar PV panels that are already installed.

At ground floor level the accommodation opens with a large entrance hall that gives access to a cloakroom, dining room and living room. The living room is an excellent proportion and has a feature bay window whilst the dining room has ample space for large table and chairs. For modern day family living a large open plan breakfast kitchen is essential and in this regard The Barn Houses excels. The kitchen is large and versatile and runs via double doors into the garden room. The garden room is a spectacular feature of the house having a vaulted ceiling and being useable twelve months of the year. It takes full advantage of the views over the south facing rear garden and open countryside beyond. The ground floor is completed by virtue of a spacious L-shaped utility room and an excellent family room that could be used as a music room or additional sitting room if required.

At first floor level there are four excellent bedrooms all of which have their own individual character, shape and size. Throughout the house and particularly upstairs there is an abundance of brickwork, original features, exposed beams and vaulted ceilings. The principal bedroom has an ensuite facility and dressing room whilst a family bathroom serves the remaining three bedrooms.

In total The Barn House extends to 2934 sq ft. The property has been continually maintained and well cared for throughout the years and has been priced realistically to reflect the fact that future purchasers may in due course wish to update some aspects of the accommodation.

Externally there is a remarkable private driveway that provides off road parking and turning space for multiple vehicles, two good sized garages and outstanding formal gardens that are principally south facing, have patios, terraces and a feature pond and of course overlook the wonderful open countryside surrounding the barn.

This outstanding property is one of the best to be offered to the market this calendar year and a viewing is thoroughly recommended to appreciate its quality. 

LOCATION Manley is close to the historic town of Frodsham which has a market every Thursday and a range of shops, bars and eating places, as well as the picturesque village of Tarporley.

There is easy access to Chester, Liverpool, Manchester and North Wales via an extensive roadway system including the M53 and M56 motorways. Nearby Mouldsworth and Frodsham have railway stations serving the Chester to Manchester Piccadilly Line.
