Get in touch
Built in the mid 1990s, Oakwell has a most appealing aesthetic appearance with its external Tudor styling and standing proud within its grounds which are predominantly laid to lawn, with a sweeping driveway accessed via electronically operated double gates which offer a real sense of security and privacy. The driveway leads to a turning circle in front of the home providing plenty of off-road parking and also branches off to a detached triple garage which itself offers an abundance of opportunities. In total, the home offers five bedrooms, all to the first floor, with the master and guest bedrooms benefitting from en-suite bathrooms. The further three bedrooms are all notable in size and they all enjoy a family bathroom with a five piece suite.
To the ground floor, the property is approached through an open pillared storm porch which leads to the entrance hall, which provides a wonderful precursor to the size and sense of space that the property has to offer. In total there are four independent reception rooms, with the living room being the principal room, enjoying a recessed exposed brick inglenook fireplace. The further reception rooms offer a flexibility of use but have been utilised as a family room, separate dining room and study. There is also a conservatory extension from the family room and this welcomes in the rear garden to the home. Kitchens have vastly become important areas to many a home and this room to the residence doesn't disappoint. It features an attractive and extensive range of light coloured units with a range of integrated appliances, glass display cabinets, composite work surfaces and a breakfast island unit. Leading off from the kitchen is a separate utility room and completing the living accommodation is a downstairs cloakroom/WC. The property benefits from oil fired central heating and leaded light wood sealed double glazing.
Externally, adjoined to the triple garage is a further storage unit which itself has a staircase off to a games room above which offers not only a fantastic teenager's retreat but also opportunity for use as a larger home office or storage area.
Balderton is situated on the fringes of open countryside yet within 10 minutes by car of Chester city centre and 5 minutes from Chester Business Park. Linking well with the A55 by pass and M53/M56 motorway network enabling a commute to Liverpool or Manchester including their airports rather convenient, the property is also convenient for the nearby villages of Kinnerton and Dodleston which have an array of quality day-to-day amenities.
