Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A beautiful refurbished period residence in a large private plot with ample parking, superb gardens, open views to the rear and access to wonderful walks on the doorstep
Comment from Robert Reed of Gascoigne Halman

I grew up in a 1930's house with a plot size of circa 0.22 acre. So, this wonderful period residence is a personal favourite of mine as it was constructed in the 1930's and stands in a plot of around 0.22 acre!

The house is one of real stature with excellent aesthetics and immediate appeal. Set behind gates with the benefit of a very generous parking arrangement, beautifully landscaped wrap around gardens and open views over countryside to the rear, this is the sort of property that you want to buy even before you set foot through the front door!

The current owners have dedicated themselves to continually maintaining and investing in the house so as to create a first class refurbished family home that combines the period features with refined contemporary quality.

Examples of the external works carried out include a new garage roof, new externally located oil boiler, installation of timber gates, new front door and porch tiles and bespoke patio areas and terraces. Internal works include full decoration, new carpets, blinds and curtains (available to purchase), new kitchen appliances and upgraded shower and bathroom fittings.

The layout is also one that offers flexibility to be adapted to suit the differing needs of a range of individual buyers. Features include an elegant entrance hall and living room with bay window overlooking and a fireplace. At the back of the house is a very impressive open plan kitchen/family room. The kitchen has a comprehensive range of wall and floor cupboards together with newly fitted appliances. This room runs open plan to the family room which has a multifuel stove as its focal point.

Completing the ground floor accommodation is a spacious utility room, separate cloakroom, side hall with oak flooring and a versatile sun room - presently utilised as both a dining room and home working area - it extends to 26'10" in length.

At first floor level the master bedroom enjoys wonderful views over the rear garden and countryside and also has the benefit of a stylish contemporary en-suite facility. The two remaining bedrooms are very large doubles and are served by a refitted family bathroom.

The external environment is an absolute delight and has benefitted from the present owners professional skill in garden landscaping and design. An abundance of colour and maturity, with different areas of interest and total privacy, this really is an external area to treasure. The large expanses of lawn are ideal for those with young children.

As already mentioned, the driveway is extensive in terms of its size and provides off road parking and turning space for several vehicles, also leading to the integral garage.

And what about further scope to develop and update? A previous planning permission was granted by Cheshire East Council which allowed for the demolition of existing garage and greenhouse and provision for new single storey rear dining extension, single storey side, cloakroom and extension of new detached timber and tile carport with store. The planning reference is 15/5422N.

For a personal description of the property or to arrange a viewing, please contact myself or a member of the team at the Tarporley office.

Bulkeley and the nearby villages of Bickerton and Peckforton are renowned for their natural beauty and proximity to surrounding countryside. The villages of Malpas and Tarporley and the towns of Nantwich and Whitchurch are all within comfortable travelling distance and offer a wide range of shopping and recreational facilities. Bunbury village is also close by and has its own primary school and a good array of day to day convenience shops. The extensive amenities of Chester City Centre can be accessed within less than thirty minutes drive.

For those with educational requirements the house stands within the catchment area for the highly regarded Bickerton Primary School and the Bishop Heber High School in Malpas rated Outstanding by Ofsted in its last inspection.

Bulkeley also provides a convenient and central base for the business traveller, in addition to the extensive road links leading to the M56, M6, A49 and A51 there are also railway stations at Crewe, Chester and Whitchurch. Manchester and Liverpool International Airports can both be accessed within 45 minutes to one hour's drive.

The area as a whole is ideal for those who enjoy rural living with walks in Bulkeley Hill Wood, Bickerton Hills and the Sandstone Trail all readily accessible. The National Trust have recently taken over the management and ownership of many of these walkways thereby providing future protection as to the use of the land.

In terms of Pubs and Restaurants, the Bickerton Poacher,Cholmondeley Arms, Dysart Arms and Yew Tree Inn are all within a short distance whilst those who enjoy a bracing walk can even venture to the Pheasant Inn in Burwardsley, an outstanding Pub/Restaurant that enjoys truly magnificent and far reaching elevated views.


From our office in the centre of Tarporley proceed out of the village in the direction of Nantwich - passing the Texaco petrol station/Spar on the left hand side. Upon reaching the T-junction with the A49 turn left. Proceed 500 yards to the traffic lights with the Indian Restaurant on the right hand side and turn right onto the A49 (Whitchurch). Continue through the villages of Beeston, Bunbury and Spurstow (about two miles in all). On passing Panama Hatties restaurant (to your right) proceed for a further mile and a half and take a right turn for the A534 (Wrexham). Proceed for a very short distance and at the next junction take a further right, onto the A534 (Wrexham). Proceed along the road for around two minutes and the property will be found on the left hand side clearly marked with a Gascoigne Halman 'for sale' board. It is well set back from the road and has a private gated entrance.
