INTRODUCTION A fantastic opportunity to purchase a beautifully finished 3-bedroom semi detached farm house and a modern, spacious 2-bedroom detached cottage set in approximately 5.3 acres of grounds with equestrian facilities which includes a barn with stabling, hay barn, two smaller paddock/holding areas, menage and an extensive paddock. All within a 10-minute drive of Chester City!
The main residence comprises a fantastic family room, 2 reception rooms, a study, a luxurious downstairs shower room, and boot room. The master bedroom is to be found on the first floor, as is bedroom 3, whilst the second bedroom enjoys a wonderful outlook, and the family bathroom has been appointed to an exceptional standard.
The cottage is ideal for retirement, guests or perhaps as a holiday let bringing in high returns. This lovely, private and high-specification home enjoys a fantastic open plan living arrangement, high-quality finishing's throughout and has a mechanical ventilation system with heat recovery.
The main paddock measures approximately 4.5 acres, the barn is 1800 sq ft with 4 separate stables and plenty of space for your trailers, tractor and workshop. To the side is a 900 sq ft hay store. With any required permissions, this could be a second profitable business opportunity.
We highly recommend a viewing at your earliest convenience to appreciate the accommodation and facilities on offer.
THE GROUNDS To the immediate front of the grounds is extensive off-road parking, upwards of 7 cars if needed, with a lawned garden that runs to the left-hand side of the cottage. From here 5 bar timber gates take you to the frontage of the cottage, with a gated pathway to the main residence. This is followed by the Farm House garden - private, safe and enclosed which is mainly laid to lawn and with plenty of space for furniture and children's outdoor toys. There are a number of trees and a summer house. To the immediate exterior of the Farm House there is a substantial Indian stone terrace with stone pizza oven and a low-level picket fence.
Opposite the aforementioned garden is a substantial timber log cabin style summer house, with its own power and lighting, and veranda seating area with plenty of hard standing storage space. By now you will have reached the barn and hay store. To your left is a smaller paddock/holding area, and behind the hay store is a fully drained sand based menage measuring 7560 sq ft. Adjacent is a second small isolation paddock. A path runs alongside both to a steel 6 bar gate that opens into the paddock measuring approximately 4.5 acres.
This is a considerably private setting within the backdrop of tree lined, picturesque countryside. There remains plenty of space and scope for further landscaping and development.
THE BARN & HAY BARN The barns are of substantial steel portal frame construction. The 30 ft x 30 ft hay barn is open on 3 sides with the 60 ft x 30 ft. main barn having 2-metre-high block dado walls and Yorkshire timber boarding above. The barn is equipped with fluorescent strip lighting, running water, and power. Two powered roller shutter doors allow access for your vehicles and trailers and there are 4 individual stables.
