About this property

  • Wirswall Hall is a large, five bedroom family home in south Cheshire, in the hamlet of Wirswall to the north of Whitchurch.

    The property is approached via a gravelled front driveway where there is ample parking and turning space to the front of the property and access to the open-fronted three bay garage (one bay is currently used as a wood store).

    An attractive entrance porch opens in to an elegant reception hall off which there is a study and cloakroom. To the right of the hall the formal dining room has a feature fireplace and a bay window overlooking the walled courtyard garden.

    Adjacent to this is the kitchen which is well equipped with an excellent range of Miele units including a granite breakfast table and central island. Several appliances have been installed throughout the kitchen and include two ovens, a microwave, ceramic hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. Providing the necessary consents are in place, prospective purchasers may have the option to combine the dining room and breakfast kitchen to create a large open plan kitchen dining/family room. Off the kitchen is a side entrance which houses a boiler cupboard.

    The inner hall has a solid oak staircase to the first floor and also provides access to the drawing room and garden room. The drawing room is a lovely space, overlooking the front garden and featuring a fireplace with oak surround and mantel.

    The garden room is subtly divided by an original oak framework but could be used as one large open place space. The garden room overlooks both the side and rear gardens with a glazed door opening onto an outside entertaining area. The informal seating area overlooks the front and side gardens and has a central fireplace with shelving to either side.

    On the first floor there is a principal bedroom with a large en suite, four further bedrooms, a dressing room and a versatile second dressing room which could also be used as a study or nursery.

    The side and rear gardens at Wirswall Hall are south westerly facing and are divided into three areas. These include a box hedge topiary garden with stocked borders, a sheltered courtyard garden ideal for al fresco entertaining, and a large lawned garden edged with a briquette laid pathway and stocked borders.

    The gardens to the front of the property are principally laid to lawn.

I love the position of Wirswall Hall - its elevated setting means there are glorious views, and the house offers great potential for a buyer to put their own stamp on the property.
