About this property

  • Lilac House stands in a fantastic location within Over Peover, a truly charming and extremely sought after Cheshire location. Originally forming part of Hillcrest Farm the current owners lovingly converted the barn in 2001. Standing in a fabulous plot with lovely private gardens surrounded by mature trees. Approached by a long private driveway there is flexible covered parking accompanied by hard standing. Unlike many barn conversions Lilac House is unique and has a plot of just under half an acre.

    The versatile and carefully arranged accommodation, which is over two floors, is beautifully presented throughout enhanced by solid Oak floors. The spacious stunning reception dining hall is extremely striking with a solid Oak staircase and an array of exposed Oak. The reception hall leads via double oak doors through to a charming sitting room which is equally as splendid. This welcoming reception room with dual aspect has original Oak beams and exposed brick chimney breast with an open fire. This room is as perfect for a winter evening as it is for the summer with French doors leading on to the patio and rear garden. The cosy family room complements the reception space with a further brick built fire place and exposed beams. One will fall in love with the Cheshire Farm House dining kitchen which completes the main living accommodation and is warmed by the Aga. This bespoke hand crafted kitchen is in keeping with the property with a lovely array of units including a Welsh dresser and a tall boy unit. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a study, utility room and downstairs cloakroom all of which are complemented by engineered Oak doors. The current owners have taken extreme care with the detail within the woodwork.

    The floor to ceiling window in the reception hall creates an open feeling on the landing of this spacious home. The principal bedroom is ample in its proportions at over thirty square feet and is complemented by dressing room and en suite bathroom. The additional Velux windows allow light to flood through the property. There are three further bedrooms, one with en suite and a family bathroom. All of the sanitary wear is in keeping with the style of the property. The four piece family bathroom suite includes a double ended roll top bath. The ample space and versatility on the first floor accommodation is perfect for many types of buyer.

    The lovely garden which is in the main laid to lawn is an idyllic retreat and benefits from a superb patio area which is ideal for entertaining leading off the reception space. The driveway leads to a carport which houses four cars and has vast amounts of hard standing; this area creates further space and opportunity.
