Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This individual property occupies an excellent location on Quarry Lane, Kelsall. It enjoys elevated views towards the Welsh hills and has breathtaking gardens to the side and the rear that are mature, established and secluded. The property has been under the same ownership for over thirty years and due to a relocation is now being offered for sale, providing a rare buying opportunity. The property consists of a stylish, individual three-bedroom, two bathroom, two-storey dwelling with detached garage, off-road parking and magnificent gardens. It would therefore be perfectly suited to a private individual looking for a quality home in a quiet area in a convenient position for commuting, a family with children attending excellent local schools or a mature couple wanting to enjoy a peaceful retirement locality. There is also (subject to planning permission) the possibility to split the present parcel of land so as to create an additional individual building plot.

The property opens with an entrance vestibule that leads in turn to a handsome entrance hall featuring an open staircase rising to the first floor. To the right is the principal living room which offers vistas over Kelsall toward the west and offers a new gas fireplace as its focal point. To the left of the entrance hall is a wonderfully proportioned dining room that opens onto a bespoke office/study. The dining room has space for a very large table and chairs. At the back of the house there is a bespoke kitchen that is comprehensively equipped, has a Rayburn cooker within it in addition to a walk in pantry and a custom table and bench around to maximise the space. From the kitchen access can be gained to the conservatory which is a long room running along the side of the property and enjoys particularly appealing and far reaching views. The conservatory is presently used as a utility room with a range of floor level cupboards and space for white goods. Completing the accommodation at ground floor is a well equipped fully tiled shower room complete with wall mounted specialist heating system and ceiling integrated body dryer.

The first-floor accommodation consists of three bedrooms and a bathroom that are surprisingly spacious and well proportioned. Each room is a substantial double. The master bedroom is complete with a walk-in closet, the second bedroom has a large closet with bi-fold doors, as well as another walk-in closet which has shared access from the third bedroom. The two bedrooms with front aspect have particularly good views over the Cheshire plains and the rear bedroom enjoys a private garden view.

The external environment is inspiring. To the front of the property there is off road parking for two vehicles in addition to a detached garage. The tiered gardens thereafter are a spectacular feature of the property having been cultivated and landscaped to form a beautiful external arrangement. There are areas of lawn, Mature fruit trees, terraced and patio areas and abundantly stocked beds and borders with a range of beautiful and colourful flowering plants which flower throughout the year. At their uppermost extremity, the gardens extend into the commanding natural rock-face setting of the property. The highest point of the garden offers magnificent views.

In the author's opinion there is a potential individual building plot within the gardens and grounds and this was a possibility that was investigated many years ago by the renowned architects North West Design of Kelsall. It should be stressed that no planning permission presently exists for a structural dwelling and that full permissions would need to be gained by the relevant planning authority, in this case Cheshire West and Chester Council. It would be for the new purchaser to verify and investigate this potential further but it will be sure to be of interest to many. 

LOCATION Kelsall is an extremely popular sustainable semi rural Cheshire village that combines day-to-day convenience with a superb position amidst some of Cheshire's most picturesque countryside. For those with educational needs, Kelsall has an outstanding Ofsted rated primary school which in turn feeds into the nearby outstanding Ofsted rated Tarporley High School. Within the village there is a large Co-operative convenience store with internal Post Office/Bureau De Change, a renowned butcher, and further shops. More over there is a recently extended and refurbished community hall, three public houses and restaurants and a well attended local church. There is also a doctors' surgery within walking distance of the house. Kelsall holds a convenient position, close to both the Georgian village of Tarporley and the thriving city centre of Chester. It is an ideal base for the commuter with many commercial centres being easily reached including Chester, Manchester, Warrington and Liverpool. Crewe railway station, Manchester and Liverpool International Airports can also be reached within a 40-45 minute drive.

EXTERNAL The property has the benefit of a block paved driveway that provides parking for 2-3 vehicles. There is also off the driveway a garage. From the driveway attractive stone steps rise up and lead to a path which in turn leads to the open fronted entrance porch and main door of the house. The gardens to the subject property are an absolute delight and are a particular feature. From the path that leads to the front door and overlooks the front driveway, magnificent views towards the Welsh hills can be enjoyed. Thereafter the garden is a totally unique and most beautiful external environment that has to be viewed to be fully appreciated and understood. Sandstone steps lead to a tiered garden that rises to a high level and a striking and distinctive area of rock face. As the garden elevates so does the beauty of the views and in the garden there are areas of lawn, seating areas, mature fruit trees, outstanding beautifully stocked beds and borders with a range of flowering plants and towards the rear of the garden many mature hedges and trees.

It should be noted that in the author's opinion there is potential to create an individual building plot within the present grounds. No planning permission has been granted for this and any parties who are interested in this concept should of course speak to the relevant local planning authority. The present vendor is however willing to sell the property free of any clawback or reservation of future development rights and it therefore gives great potential and further value in the time ahead if developed
