Dating from 1750 The Willows was substantially rebuilt under architect supervision and refurbished to a high standard by the present owners and transformed over the years into a four bedroomed detached family home. It should be of particular appeal to those seeking an abundance of outdoor space yet still lying within a location which is convenient for the villages of Holt and Rossett, and also to the major road networks linking back into Chester, Liverpool, Manchester and beyond.
The excellent flow of living accommodation welcomes in its surroundings and the property features a sizeable outbuilding which could, subject to any necessary planning or building consents, be converted to further living accommodation. Permission was granted for conversion to a two bedroomed bungalow with a double garage (now lapsed).
The property is approached via a double timber gated golden gravelled driveway with brick pillars which passes through a lawned garden with a stream with also a footbridge over which provides access to the side of the property, where there is a raised timber decked terrace.
The living accommodation comprises: Open oak pillared entrance porch beneath a tiled canopy; reception hall, being a welcoming area to the home with a spindled oak staircase providing access to the galleried landing, where on the first level there are four bedrooms, the master being of a notable size and enjoying a balcony which is laid to paving and spindled and provides a rear aspect, and an en-suite. The landing area also provides access to the family bathroom fitted with a four piece suite with a separate shower to the bath.
Returning to the ground floor, in total there are four reception areas to the home, with the principle sitting room having an open fireplace and double doors linking through to the dining room and also a conservatory extension, on a brick base with UPVC double glazing with integrated blinds. There is a downstairs cloakroom/WC and the dining kitchen offers a contemporary feel with a stylish range of fitted units and granite work surfaces with a range of integrated appliances, and separate utility room off, where the 'Worcester' combination boiler is housed.
We feel the property would be an excellent acquisition for a family and all those seeking land and the detached outbuilding offers a certain level of intrigue. This currently comprises of four compartments, one of which is being used as a home office by our clients, one a garden store and an open covered car port which features a games area off.
