Description Point House Farm is a period dwelling built of brick with white painted elevations under a tiled roof. The property has been a private family house for a number of years. Various alterations have been completed to enhance the living accommodation but in principle the dwelling offers comprehensive living space and huge potential for modernisation and/or renovation.

The house presently provides spacious and adaptable accommodation arranged over two floors served by oil fired central heating and well suited to family living. There are two principle reception rooms each with fireplaces and the sitting room opens to a conservatory, a study, kitchen with breakfast room off and cloakroom. The kitchen has a range of wall and floor units with cupboards and drawers beneath work surfaces, Aga Masterchef double oven with grill and access to the utility.

At first floor level there are five bedrooms, a dressing room, a further sitting room with vaulted ceiling and three bath/shower rooms. The first floor sitting room and bedroom have obvious scope to be converted into annexed self-contained accommodation, particularly if incorporating the ground floor beneath. 

Outside there is a superb range of stables set within a 4 bay steel framed building, a 60m x 25m manege and land sub-divided into paddocks. Indeed, for the equestrian enthusiast Point House Farm offers a rare opportunity to acquire a well-equipped property in a private and extremely accessible location. The existing livery yard provides a secure income whilst the remaining facilities and potential conversion opportunities offer further income generation, subject to planning permissions. 

Location Point House Farm occupies a semi-rural location off Ferry lane and is approached via a long drive enjoying a high degree of privacy not least as it is surrounded by its own land. The centre of Chester is within 2 miles and the city offers a comprehensive range of amenities and sporting/recreational activities as well as excellent shopping both in the city centre and nearby at the various out of town retail parks including the Greyhound and Cheshire Oaks outlets.

On the educational front there is a choice of both private and state schooling in and around the city including Kings and Queens, The Firs, Upton and Queens Park at Handbridge.

There are excellent communication links with easy access to the A55 expressway serving North Wales and the M56 is within 6 miles. Chester Station offers a 2 hour service to London Euston for travel further afield Liverpool John Lennon Airport and Manchester Airport within 29 and 36 miles respectively. 

Outside The property is approached via a long drive to a large parking area to the north east of the house. Lawned gardens surround the house and buildings which are shielded by high hedgerows and a well-drained ditch to the north side. The stable yard comprises a 4 bay portal framed building with block and corrugated clad elevations within which is a range of 15 Monarch boxes, office (4m x 3m), W.C., feed (5.6m 3.2m) and tack (8m x 3.3m) rooms and a wash box with heaters. The building is served with light, water and power and has a concrete floor and two access points to outside. The tack room and office are both alarmed, heated and benefit from hot running water. 

To one side of the barn is a fully drained, floodlit 60m x 25m manege with a sand, rubber and carpet surface and post and rail perimeter fence. There is a concrete base in situ, previously used for a horse walker. The majority of the land is down to grass and separated into paddocks with a mixture of post and rail and mains electric fencing. The land has a well serviced water supply. There is a further small parcel of woodland on the north side of the ditch.
There are two further steel portal buildings housing a store room and Hay barn.
There is an existing DIY livery business providing an income of £30/box/week with liveries benefiting from the use of the secured facilities, manege and grazing.
