A superbly finished family house in an elevated setting with wonderful views
The Highlands is situated in a delightful, elevated position on the outskirts of Helsby, close to the border with Alvanley. This semi-rural setting allows for wonderful views and numerous walks in the area (including Helsby Hill and The Quarry Woodland Park) whilst a range of local amenities are with easy reach.
Helsby is only 0.5 miles from The Highlands and provides an extensive range of facilities and secondary education at Helsby High School. Alvanley village is less than a mile away where there is a popular primary school and a country pub.
The road, rail and motorway networks enable daily commuter access to the regions' commercial centres. The M56 and M53 motorways provide access to Liverpool and Manchester and their respective airports while Helsby has a railway station with services to Chester, Warrington, Liverpool, Manchester and a number of other locations.
Chester (8 miles) is one of the north west's leading retail, leisure and commercial centres and there are further educational options at nearby independent schools including Abbey Gate College at Saighton, and Kings and Queens in the city.
The Highlands is an exceptional family house with well-balanced and beautifully presented accommodation throughout. The current owners have invested a huge amount of time and effort in making the property what it is today.
The property is approached through electric gates and there is plenty of parking for several vehicles.
The principal receptions rooms are centred around an impressive entrance hall. Stairs lead down to the cellar and there are two staircases to the first floor. There is a downstairs cloak room under the main staircase.
The kitchen, positioned at the front of the house, is a lovely space with several windows allowing plenty of natural light. A range of base and wall units provide ample storage and house a number of integrated appliances. There is a large island unit with raised breakfast bar undoubtedly making this the hub' of the house for day-to-day living.
The drawing room and the sitting room are two more impressive reception rooms with large windows and each with a fireplace, making excellent spaces in which to relax or entertain. The dining room is straight ahead of the main entrance to the property, and again is a fantastic room with a door leading to the rear of the house.
On the right of the hall there are several useful rooms including a cloak room, large utility and a store room. Adjacent to this is the pool room and bar. Having been carefully styled to maximise natural light and space, this is a magnificent room allowing for an abundance of leisure facilities. From here there is access to the wine cellar.
On the first floor there are six bedroom suites. The master bedroom is very well laid out with a spacious en suite bathroom and dressing area with walk-in wardrobe. The main bedroom leads through to a gym and office, both of which have doors out to a large terrace.
There are five further bedrooms, each with en suite facilities. Bedrooms 2, 3 and 4 also have the benefit of walk-in wardrobes, and there is a separate dressing room serving bedrooms 5 and 6.
Outside, the gardens are principally laid to lawn and wrap around the property. Designated patios and terraces enable the owners to enjoy the sun as it moves around the garden. Being elevated, there are several levels throughout the gardens, all of which add to the charm and appeal of this spectacular home.
