Property Details

BRIEF DESCRIPTION
Station House is a converted railway station which used to serve the Wrexham to Liverpool line which was so popular with wealthy 19th century merchants. The house offers five double-sized bedrooms with a superb living room and master bedroom both having far-reaching views and balconies. The property also has the additional benefit of full planning permission to convert into two separate dwellings. The accommodation is arranged on three floors with two further detached outbuildings currently used as an office with garaging and showers and a separate annex with a triple car port and flat above, which would be ideal for a dependent relative or guests. The property is securely accessed via a private lane with gated access and initial parking to the front gatehouse, with further parking in the triple car port which itself leads to a further garage. The property stands in stunning mature gardens which border Gresford Hill as well as the still used Wrexham to Chester railway line. The house has been skilfully adapted by the current owners whilst still offering vast potential for further adjustments. The property also has two central heating systems allowing the house to be divided back into two properties if necessary with planning permission already granted for the property to be divided into two separate properties. The accommodation comprises in brief: Entrance hall; L-shaped breakfast kitchen; large sitting room; separate dining room; large gymnasium with fine views; pleasant morning room which would make an ideal study area with fine views towards the entrance of the property; and a cloakroom and utility completing the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor, there are four double-sized bedrooms, one with en-suite facilities, as well as a superb living room with a balcony enjoying far-reaching views over the rear garden and beyond over the Gresford valley; further bathroom; and a staircase to the excellent-sized 23ft x 19ft master bedroom suite with his and hers dressing rooms, en-suite facilities and patio doors providing access to a further balcony which enjoys far-reaching private views. Externally, there are large mature gardens to the front and rear and within the grounds there is a double garage with adjoining triple car port with access to a granny flat/annex over. In addition to this, as you approach the property there is a detached gatehouse with integral single garage, office and shower room. If you are looking for a unique, sizeable and secluded property with historical links to the cross border rail of the thriving industrial years then this one-off property in fine gardens could well be the property for you.

LOCATION
Station House is in a most unusual and unique situation, being near to the top of Gresford Hill overlooking a wooded valley whilst lying adjacent to the Wrexham to Chester railway line with far-reaching views surrounding this. The property lies a short walk away from the array of amenities on hand in Gresford including the newly built Co-operative store which is built on the border of Marford and Gresford and the historic Gresford Church. Further afield is the lovely Gresford Lake and seating area.

EXTERNALLY
The property is approached along a lane which runs from the main road which leads to electric gates which provide access to the house and its grounds. The grounds are situated to either side of the house and are mainly laid to lawn with stocked seasonal borders. Immediately on the left upon entering the property is the gatehouse/office/garage and beyond the main house is the triple car port, twin garages and accommodation above. The gardens form a particularly attractive feature of the house, being bordered on one side by a wooded hill and on the other side by the Wrexham to Chester railway line dropping down beyond that to a wooded valley.

DIRECTIONS
Proceed out of Chester along Wrexham Road. Upon reaching the roundabout at the junction with the A55 continue straight over to the next roundabout onto the A483 Chester to Wrexham by pass. Take the first exit signposted Rossett and Llay and at the end of the slip road turn left. Follow the road down to the mini roundabout, turning right, and proceed up Marford Hill. Continue to the top of the hill travelling on the old Chester to Wrexham road and continue through the village of Gresford. Turn right at the traffic lights at The Plough public house onto High Street. Continue for approximately half a mile, passing Gresford Church on the left hand side where the road will bear left. Pass the Old Saints Church on the left hand side with the Yew Tree public house on the right hand side. Follow the road, passing The Griffin public house on the left hand side and just as the road goes down hill there is a 40 mph sign on the left hand side. Take a right hand turning onto a private lane and follow on to Station House.
