An exceptional former rectory in a prime village location near Chester.
The Old Rectory is one of the more impressive period houses in the Chester area. It is a handsome recently renovated Victorian property framed by its mature grounds of about 1.73 acres and set back from Village Road.
It is approached by a sweeping gravel drive leading to a parking and turning area by the front door after a spur to the left serving the intact former stables and coach house in a pretty enclosed courtyard by the back door.
The front door sits within a porch and opens into an elegant hall, with stairs to the first floor and access to the main reception rooms, many retaining period features. The drawing room is an impressive room with an attractive fireplace flanked by cupboards.
The dining room has an attractive polished wooden floor, a painted fireplace, a bay window with French doors opening into the garden.
There is a sitting room with a fireplace and cupboard storage and a at the heart of the house an excellent Brownlows kitchen with a good range of fitted units, an island, a gas and electric Aga range cooker and French doors to the garden. Beyond is a utility room, cloakroom and stairs to the wine cellar.
On the second floor is a master bedroom with and en suite bathroom and four further bedrooms and two further bathrooms. The second floor is arranged as a flat with a fitted kitchen/sitting room, bedroom 6 and bathroom 4.
The stable block and coach house are used for garaging, an office, boiler room and storage, but could be converted into further ancillary accommodation.
The house stands in delightful mature gardens with a number of magnificent specimen trees. To the front and rear there are pleasant views over fields.

This is a truly magnificent property throughout to which the current owners have applied a great deal of care, attention, and style in creating a wonderful family home. Being only a few miles away from Chester city centre, this really is a delightful spot.Charlie Kannreuther
