A stylish and practical family home in a rural setting, with the benefit of a self-contained annexe and land
Hafod Owen is situated in a sought-after rural location about 8 miles from Chester. The nearby village of Higher Kinnerton has a general store, post office, church and pubs complimented by a wide range of amenities at Broughton Park (about 5 miles). The historic city of Chester offers a more comprehensive range of retail, leisure and business services.
There are state secondary and primary schools locally and independent King's School (7 miles) and Queen's School (9 miles) in Chester are highly regarded.
Leisure opportunities are well catered for with football, cricket and tennis clubs locally, and for the golfing enthusiast, a number of golf courses close by. Chester is home of one of the oldest racecourses in the country and provides an extensive programme of horse racing and other events. Grosvenor Park, during the summer months, hosts a popular series of outdoor theatre.
Chester has direct access to the motorway network, linking to Manchester, Liverpool and their airports and to the North Wales coast. There is a direct and regular rail service to London Euston (about 2 hours).
Hafod Owen occupies a superb position in a substantial plot off Lower Mountain Road. Features such as a self-contained annexe and over eight acres of land mean this is a superb property for families seeking a rural lifestyle whilst being within easy access of Chester.
A huge amount of time and effort has been applied in achieving a stylish family home with all the enjoyment of character features combined with practical, day-to-day living.
The property is approached via a long, private driveway with plenty of parking at the front of the house. The porch is a stylish and practical entrance into the impressive reception hall, around which the principal reception rooms are centred.
To the left of the hall is the kitchen; a beautiful room with high quality units, an island' and breakfast bar and a number of integrated appliances. French doors lead out to the side garden.
There is a dining area adjacent to the kitchen and the open-plan space is continued down into the sitting room. This practical and open setup undoubtedly makes this entire area the hub of the house. A number of windows allow plenty of natural light and a feature fireplace with woodburning stove mean this is the perfect space in which to relax or entertain.
A door leads to the inner hall which has a wonderful outlook to the garden and space to be used as a study or music room.
Back in the entrance hall, there is a useful utility room with access to the courtyard, and a separate cloakroom. A door leads through to the family room; again, a fantastic, bright and airy space with a wood burner.
Adjacent is the entertainment room, having previously been stables but now serving as a large, open space suitable for a variety of uses and with access into the courtyard.
On the first floor of the main house there are five generous bedrooms, all accessed off an impressive landing. The master suite comprises a bedroom with wonderful views over open countryside, a walk-in wardrobe and both an en suite bathroom and separate shower room.
The second bedroom has dual aspect windows, a feature fireplace and a number of fitted wardrobes. A Jack and Jill' door gives direct access into the bathroom, meaning this could be used solely for en suite purposes.
The remaining three bedrooms are well-proportioned and again, offer huge versatility in their layout and use. There is a second family bathroom at the rear of the house.
The annexe at Hafod Owen can be integrated into the remainder of the property or self-contained by external access through the boot room. Stairs from the boot room lead onto a landing where there is a double bedroom with fitted wardrobes, a bathroom and a spacious sitting room which adjoins a fitted kitchen.
The gardens and grounds at the property are delightful. Wrapping around the house, there is a great deal of privacy and plenty of space in which to enjoy the surroundings. South-westerly facing, the gardens reap full enjoyment of the sun, be it on the terrace outside the kitchen or on the rear lawn.
As well as a garage and stable (attached to the house), there is an open barn giving ample opportunity for storage. To the right hand side of the house an enclosed tennis court lines the rear boundary.
Prospective purchasers should note that it may be possible to acquire less land (in line with a deduction from the asking price) if the full amount were not required.
