Description The Hollies is a refurbished and extended period dwelling built of brick with white painted elevations under a slate roof. The property has particularly benefitted from the conversion of a former adjoining barn into a spacious breakfast kitchen & dining room plus to the opposite side the addition of a superb Orangery. 

The house provides spacious and adaptable accommodation arranged over two floors, well suited for family living. The Entrance hall leads into the first reception room with open fireplace, which opens into a well-designed and feature Orangery offering views across to the Welsh hills. A second reception room offers ideal space for entertaining. A large dining room with French doors leading to the patio and garden is adjacent to the single storey kitchen/breakfast room. 

The kitchen/breakfast room has a range of wooden units with a granite worktop, Belfast sink and integrated dishwasher. A twin Rangemaster oven with gas hobs and warming plates provides the main cooking appliance but a twin oven Rayburn is also incorporated. There is a utility room adjoining the kitchen with separate pantry and external side door. There is a further office/snug room with feature fireplace. A newly fitted bathroom completes the downstairs accommodation 

At first floor level there is a Master Bedroom with a further 3 double rooms; a dressing room and a family bathroom with shower, WC, sink and heated towel rail.
The property also benefits from a solar panel system, which helps reduce electrical bills and provides a modest income. 

Location The Hollies occupies a semi-rural location off Greaves lane, Threapwood, close to the village of Malpas and with far reaching views towards the Welsh Hills. The village of Malpas is within 4 miles and offers a comprehensive range of amenities and recreational facilities.

The small village of Threapwood is shrouded in history. Sitting on one of the old roman roads leading to Chester, it was previously split between Flintshire and Cheshire until the late 19th Century where the mapping changes brought the village wholly into Cheshire.

There are easy and convenient links with Whitchurch and Wrexham, whilst Chester is within a short distance.
On the educational front there is a choice of both private and state schooling; including Kings and Queens, The Firs, and The White House in Whitchurch. Malpas offers well known primary and secondary schools and are renowned for some of the best in Cheshire.
There are excellent communication links with easy access to the A55 expressway serving North Wales and the M56 is within a short distance. Chester Station offers a 2-hour service to London Euston for travel further afield Liverpool John Lennon Airport and Manchester International Airport within 40 and 45 miles respectively. 

Outside The property is entered off a quiet country lane, through entrance gates into a spacious parking area, with plenty of room for turning. There are two stable blocks; the first is a steel portal framed building, built with brick and incorporating three large stables with rubber floor matting. The second is brick built under a pitched slate roof incorporating four stables, a tack room and garage. A separate timber hay barn is adjacent. 

The stables are ideal for their current equestrian use but offer the potential of conversion to a range of alternative uses, subject to planning permission. 

Manege A recently built 40m x 20m floodlit manege with Combi-Ride surface installed by Equestrian Surfaces.
There are three predominately flat paddocks, with post and rail division fencing and perimeter hedging; the paddocks have automatic water drinkers. There is also a convenient small winter turnout paddock with woodchip based surface.
There are mature, well-kept gardens with raised flower beds and patio areas to the sides and rear.
