Beautifully appointed and tastefully presented family accommodation comprising Entrance Hall, Cloakroom with wc, Sitting Room, Dining Room, Double Glazed Conservatory, Breakfast Kitchen with Pantry, Five Bedrooms, Two Bathrooms, Two Driveways and Double Garage. In all five acres or thereabouts.

Enviably positioned at the head of a quiet lane with no through traffic this substantial detached country house was formerly the Gardeners Cottage to Trevalyn Manor. Whilst the benefits of this peaceful rural setting are self evident, the house is located within easy reach of the day to day amenities available in Rossett and is, for the commuter, within easy reach of the region's important commercial centres including Wrexham, Liverpool, The Wirral and the historic City of Chester. Originally constructed in 1899, Trevalyn Manor Cottage was greatly extended and much improved in the early 1980's and has in more recent times been the subject of considerable capital expenditure and today provides versatile family accommodation which has a high level of appointment particularly in the kitchen and bathroom areas and is also pleasantly presented throughout. In brief the accommodation includes an Entrance Hall, Cloakroom with wc, a cosy Sitting Room, Separate Dining Room which is open plan to a good sized Double Glazed Conservatory - there is a well equipped country style pine breakfast kitchen with pantry. The first floor Principal Bedroom has luxurious Ensuite Shower facility, there are four further Bedrooms, all of which enjoy rural views and there is a beautifully appointed Family Bathroom.


To the front of the house there is a loose stone driveway providing off road parking in front of the double garage. Also to the front is an attractive cottage style garden with an area of shaped lawn fringed with flowering plants and shrubbery. Adjacent to the parking area two pairs of timber gates lead through to a further loose stone driveway providing further vehicular parking or hardstanding for boat/caravan etc. At the head of the driveway is a detached brick and slate building which can be adapted to suit a variety of purposes but is currently arranged to provide stabling and comprises:-
Stable One: (10'2 x 8'11) with electric light and stable door to front.
Stable Two: (9'9 x 8'11) with door to front and light.
To the immediate rear of the house is a quarry tiled raised patio area providing ample space for outdoor furniture/entertaining. The patio sits in front of a large expanse of fairly level lawn which is fringed by deep flower beds containing flowering plants and shrubbery. There is a vegetable growing area plus an aluminium framed glass green house and timber garden shed. At the rear of the garden is a handsome mature sycamore tree. Adjoining the formal garden areas and included within the sale and also with separate road access is a sizeable grass paddock with established boundaries which offers an excellent amenity for the keeping of livestock/horses etc.
