Escape to the countryside and experience the restorative pleasures of rural living, at Wellfield House, a stylish home with history and heart, reimagined for 21st century living.

Nestled along a quiet country lane, pull through the electric, fob controlled double gates and onto the large gravel driveway to the front of the home, where there is plenty of parking for three cars, with a rear drive offering additional parking for a further two cars. There is also a double garage with two electric doors.

Sense the privacy of Wellfield House immediately upon arrival, with mature planting and well stocked borders offering a fringe of foliage as you leave the hustle and bustle of the world behind and seek sanctuary within.

Character and comfort
With only three owners in the last 50 years, Wellfield House is an endearing home, brimming with the warmth and character of its Victorian heritage. Dating back to around 1900, and originally farm workers' cottages, Wellfield House has been lovingly and sympathetically upgraded over the previous 25 years, having undergone a full programme of refurbishment including the installation of new double glazing, external wall insulation, solar PV, solar water heating, air source heat pumps, electric gates and garage doors.

Light-filled living
The contemporary upgrades at Wellfield house are instantly apparent in the spacious, light-filled porch, where glass and oak mingle to create a warm, bright arrival home.

Beyond this light-filled, oak framed entrance, step through into the inner hallway, whose double height ceiling serves to amplify the light and airy feel of Wellfield House. Peaceful, spacious and with a minimalist, Scandi ambience, sense the relaxing calm of this beautifully modernised home the moment you step through the door.

Plenty of built-in storage is available for shoes and coats, with a chic and stylish cloakroom furnished with floating wash basin and WC also available.

Relax and unwind
Stretch out in front of the warmth from the log-burning stove in the elegant and spacious sitting room. Light and bright, French doors open to the sheltered loggia to the rear, allowing you to step outside easily during the summer months to soak up the sunshine.

Heart of the home
The bespoke kitchen, supplied by Tegla is designed to serve modern family living and dining, brimming with storage and sociably styled around the large, granite topped central island.

Light streams in through windows above the sink to the front, where the main culinary area is amply illuminated, and features an array of appliances including oven, hob, extractor, sink and fridge-freezer.

Tiled flooring is practical underfoot, flowing through to the rear, where this spacious room opens into a large dining area where patio doors open to the sheltered loggia, the perfect place for entertaining and alfresco dining whatever the weather - with fantastic garden views.

Open yet zoned to create different rooms within a room, beyond the dining area, a contemporary log-burning stove sits stylishly on its glass plinth within the chimney breast, issuing warmth and welcome throughout the living room area of this capacious and welcoming family space.

Doors open, once more, to the loggia, allowing for instant connection with the outdoors, just perfect for parties and entertaining. Inside, sit back and soak up the views over the patio and garden, to the fields beyond.

OWNER QUOTE: "The house has plenty of break-out space to give children the space they need as they grow up."

Practical places
Light and bright, with a large window to the front set above the sink, the utility room, off the kitchen offers further storage, alongside plumbing for a washer-dryer and also serves as a convenient boot room entrance, when returning home with muddy boots (or muddy paws) after a pleasurable winter walk about the country lanes.

Returning to the kitchen, sneak a peek at the study, a warm and welcoming room with log-burning stove and French doors opening out to the garden. Carpeted underfoot and spacious, this versatile room is ideal as a snug lounge or even a playroom.

Making your way along an inner hallway, discover another room, currently used as a gym, and beyond, a large, light filled guest bedroom.

Versatile living
Windows fitted with blinds draw in peaceful views out over the garden, with so much space for storage. Serving the guest bedroom is a large ensuite. Fully tiled, and with wet room shower, wall mounted vanity unit wash basin and WC, the ensuite is luxuriously appointed, and warmed by underfloor heating.

This capacious bedroom has vast scope to be easily remodelled to incorporate the existing exercise room as a dressing room, should you choose.

With a glazed door providing access out to the rear driveway from this hallway, there is ample potential to create a self-contained annex to this side of the home, should you desire.

Sleep tight
Continue up the stairs to the first-floor landing, a light and bright space, where two large, light filled double bedrooms can be found immediately to the left.

Looking out over the front, the first double bedroom follows the line of the roof and is demurely dressed in soothing shades of grey.

Next door, a second spacious double bedroom is brimming with storage, furnished with elegant, fitted wardrobes and shelving. To one side, the room naturally zones to provide a dressing or study area, whilst large windows frame enduring views out over the garden to the Rossett countryside beyond.

Soak and sleep
Refresh and revive in the family bathroom along the landing, luxuriously furnished with a centrally filling roll top bath, separate shower, wash basin and WC. Elegantly tiled to the walls for a soothing, spa-like ambience, light streams in through a large window and Velux overhead.

Across from the bathroom awaits the master bedroom. Dressed in peaceful, neutral shades of café au lait, this spacious and serene suite is well stocked with storage in the wall of fitted wardrobes. Wake up to blissful views out over the verdant garden and idyllic countryside; so peaceful, so private.

Freshen up in the private shower room, fully tiled in contemporary grey with wet room shower containing rainfall head and handheld attachment, chrome, heated towel radiator, WC and wall-mounted vanity unit wash basin, indulgently warmed by underfloor heating.

At the end of the hallway, discover a fourth, sizeable double bedroom, currently used as a games room.

Sunshine, shelter and shade
Set upon approximately 1.1 acres, the garden at Wellfield House wraps around it providing privacy and pastoral bliss, with rolling fields extending out to the rear.

In the front, the quaint well provides Wellfield House with its name, whilst to the rear, the large patio extends alongside the kitchen, dining room and sitting room, sheltered in parts by the useful loggia ensuring the outdoors can be enjoyed whatever the weather.

Striped lawn curves around maturely planted borders, where shrubbery and spring bulbs mingle.

A haven for wildlife, the garden is a nature lovers' paradise, with a paddock area of 0.47 acres brimming with fruit trees including cherry, apple and plum, alongside a wood/machinery store and a copse of around 40 trees, carpeted in daffodils and bluebells in spring, making way for cow parsley and other wild flowers later in summer. In the winter, open views extend over the fields to the hills in the distance.

Soak up the sunshine on the patio or enjoy a peaceful moment's reverie in the dappled shade of the wooded grove, listening to the soothing sound of birdsong.

OWNER QUOTE: "The paddock has been a wonderful area for the children to play and make as much mess as they like!"

Grow your own in the vegetable plot and kitchen gardens, with a greenhouse and two garden sheds supporting your efforts.
