Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This beautiful extended detached cottage is located in a first class semi-rural position. Set in grounds of a little under one acre and having the benefit of garden, paddock and stable block, this well balanced home is worthy of immediate inspection. Racecourse Lane is a splendid mature and established lane of individual properties and the general environment is tranquil and unspoilt. In many ways the tranquillity belies what is an exceptionally convenient location with the A49 close at hand providing straight forward access to an excellent range of commercial centres and schools.

The purpose and date of the original build is not known, however, there are several accounts on record that the house was used as a grandstand for members and race officials on the finish line of the Tarporley Hunt Steeple Chases, hence the name Stand House. There have been only three owners since 1930 with the present vendors having been in residence for seventeen years.

The property itself has been restored, extended and improved considerably in the past few years. The end result is an excellent four bedroom, three bathroom cottage that sits well in a plot with south facing garden and paddock.

At ground floor level there is a dining hall with stripped and varnished oak flooring, living room with wood-burning stove and spectacular garden room with vaulted ceiling and exposed apex beam. The breakfast kitchen is fitted with an excellent range of Shaker style cupboards, has an integrated Rayburn cooker and more than ample space for table and chairs. The ground floor is completed by virtue of a spacious utility room, beautifully fully tiled shower room and useful integral garage.

At first floor level there is a principal bedroom with en-suite shower room, three further bedrooms, all with lovely aspects and a well proportioned family bathroom.

Externally the house offers a lovely and rare balance of garden, paddock and useful outbuildings. The general privacy and seclusion for this 0.824 acre plot is highly impressive.

It should be noted that the house still retains its position with regard to the original racecourse and that the general area is a favourite for equestrian activities. There is also a possibility to rent additional land, either adjoining the paddock or opposite the house on Racecourse Lane, with all enquiries via the selling agents.

Owners of ponies and horses should note there is ample opportunity to "hack out" on the nearby country park, whilst the outbuildings also have a number of potential alternative uses, subject to the necessary planning permissions being granted.

Priced competitively, offered with no ongoing chain and superbly located, this excellent individual property is worthy of a prompt inspection.
