Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Built in 1873 and boasting over 1.8 acres of land, 'The Cave' is one of the most exquisite and historically significant houses for sale within the Wirral. The original 'smugglers cave' has been meticulously designed and spoilt with period features and panoramic views.

'The Cave' is an imposing and characterful flagship home set within a superbly elevated position in the heart of Heswall. Positioned in private gated grounds, with 1.8 acres of land, a beautiful labyrinth of pathway's, winding through woodland leading onto lawned gardens and the hidden dell area. This family property and its grounds both have a unique charm and is simply unrivalled.

This superb home was built in the 1873 and with only three previous owners, allowing the property to maintain its original character, it is a true landmark in the idyllic town of Heswall.

Enticing exploration both inside and out, revealing its many charms as you meander around it, the accommodation spans across four

Approaching the property you are met by a beautiful sandstone boundary wall with bespoke electric gates opening onto a spacious driveway with a sandstone detached garage. You enter the property through a well-crafted timber framed open porch and through a vestibule, eventually entering the striking entrance hall where it is truly a feast for the eyes with the stain glass windows acting as the centrepiece, each glass marked by previous owners adding to the charm and history of this home.

Leading off the entrance hall are three reception rooms, all benefiting from far reaching views. At the rear of the ground floor is what would have been the house staff quarters. Here we have a butler’s pantry leading onto the main kitchen, parlour with an exemplary original stove & cooker with larder and pantry rooms as well a cloakroom.

Moving upstairs is an experience in itself with a beautifully crafted turn staircase leading past the feature stained glassed windows and onto the galley landing. On the first floor are five double bedrooms with a large Jack and Jill four piece family bathroom, additional water closet and an en-suite bathroom within the master bedroom.

Leading onto the second floor is a small landing and a further two double bedrooms, one bedroom in particularly has a view to die for within, looking over the treetops and out towards the Dee Estuary.

There is the benefit of a basement level within the property which comprises a large workshop area, storage rooms and substantially sized garage.

Externally, the grounds are utilised with stunning landscaped gardens surrounding the property on all sides, with expansive areas of lawn and woodland, planted borders, shrubbery and trees. There is also a detached double garage, an external pool area in need of upgrading, hidden pathways and stone walling enclosing this extensive plot.
