Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This excellent detached property is located in Douglas Close, one of Hartford's most sought after residential addresses. Originally constructed by Redrow in 1992, the property has a striking aesthetic appeal and has been superbly extended and improved with high quality UPVC double glazing being fitted within the last few weeks by the present owners. The property is a very large, spacious and adaptable family home. Offered for sale with no onging chain and priced competitively, an early viewing is recommended.

Upon internal inspection purchasers will note the substantial proportions of all the rooms and will be particularly wowed by the ground floor that offers a space and versatility difficult to be bettered. The entrance hall is a spacious and elegant opening to the property and has doors that lead to several of the key reception rooms and a ground floor cloakroom. The living is located at the front of the house and has a bay window and a feature fireplace. Two sets of double width doors from the entrance hall lead to the L-shaped family which is split into two areas and therefore can be used as either two separate reception rooms or one larger flowing space if preferred. Double doors from family room one lead down to the south facing garden and there is also a curved bay window which brings character to the room. There is also a separate study/office which could alternatively be used as a playroom or music room. The open plan kitchen/dining room is of a generous proportion and comprises a comprehensively equipped kitchen with central island unit and more than ample space for a good sized table and chairs. The accommodation is completed by virtue of a utility room, which is a useful additional space and has a door leading to the outside.

At first floor level the accommodation continues to impress. The master bedroom is situated over the living room and has extensive fitted wardrobes and a stylish contemporary refitted en-suite shower room. The second bedroom is again a large double and has an en-suite shower room which is in need of some modernisation. There are three further bedrooms served by a family bathroom which has an attractive contemporary tile and modern white fitments.

Externally there is ample off road parking for a minimum of three vehicles to the front whilst there is also a large double garage. The gardens to the rear are an absolutely delight being south facing and having been expertly landscaped by the present owners to an exacting and impressive specification. In addition to a good sized area of lawn there is a magnificent paved area which is hard landscaped to provide the most perfect environment for al fresco dining. Unusually for a house of this age and construction the property is not overlooked to the rear and due to it being a corner plot enjoys a far larger sized garden than that which is normal.

Offering an excellent layout, a good overall specification, perfect located within walking distance of Hartford village centre - good levels of interest are anticipated. 

LOCATION Hartford is one of Cheshire's most popular villages, combining rural appeal with first class accessibility and a superb range of amenities. Within walking distance of the house are two railway stations - Greenbank (Manchester to Chester line) and Hartford (Liverpool - Crewe - London). Road access to the M6 and M56 is afforded by the A556 and the A49, making commuting to Chester, Warrington, Liverpool and Manchester and MediaCityUK easily accessible whilst Liverpool and Manchester International Airports can be accessed within 45 minutes drive.

The village has a number of shops, including newsagents, pharmacy, florist, butchers and general convenience store. In addition, there is a very popular café / wine bar that serves food throughout the day. In terms of other facilities, there is the Hartford Hall Hotel, two public houses and two well attended churches. Hartford is renowned for its superb educational facilities catering for all age groups, including the highly reputable popular private Grange School (junior and secondary level), Hartford High School, two excellent state junior schools, St Wilfred's primary school, St Nicholas's Roman Catholic high school, Mid-Cheshire College of Further Education and a day nursery. Hartford is well positioned to take advantage of outdoor activities in central Cheshire, including dog walking, horse riding and rambling, with the Whitegate Way, Marbury Country Park, Delamere Forest and the Sandstone Trail all with easy travel distance. Several golf courses, including Hartford, Sandiway and Vale Royal are a few minutes drive away.
