Individual properties in Kelsall is continually in demand and Wright Marshall estate agents are delighted to offer for sale this delightful cottage, known as Half Acre Barn. As the name would suggest, the property originally occupied a half acre plot and is well positioned, with superb views to the front towards the North Wales hills. The cottage has a distinctive and impressive sandstone construction and is offered to the market with no ongoing chain. An early viewing is thoroughly recommended.

Internally the accommodation offers surprisingly spacious accommodation that can be adapted to suit individual needs and all of which has an appealing charm and quirkiness to it. The property opens with an entrance hall and the biggest ground floor space is the living room. The living room is superbly proportioned, has a fireplace as its focal point and also has a lovely aspect over the rear garden and direct access to it. The dining hall is very well located next to the kitchen. The kitchen is beautifully finished with a range of cream wall and floor cupboards and high quality granite preparation surfaces throughout. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a very useful utility room and a separate shower room.

At first floor level the accommodation continues to impress. There are three bedrooms in total, all of which are well proportioned and each having its own individual character. Unusually for a property of this age and style there are is both a bathroom and a shower room in the upstairs of the house, both of which are well proportioned and comprehensively equipped.

Externally there is a delightful rear garden that has been beautifully landscaped, cultivated and designed. The garden is tiered and from the highest point enjoys fantastic views out to the front and there is also many suitable spaces for al fresco dining. In addition to the beautiful garden there is also a gravelled driveway providing very comfortable off road parking for one vehicle and parking for two smaller cars, whilst there is also a single garage.

It is extremely rare to buy an individual house of character with parking, garden and a garage within Kelsall village at under £400,000. It is therefore the agent's opinion that this excellent value for money property is worthy of immediate inspection and significant levels of interest are anticipated.
