    About this property

    • Higher Berse Hall is a wonderful family home with a handsome Georgian façade constructed of ashlar stone with a slate roof. The house bears the date 1815 and has been improved to a high standard retaining original, period features including fireplaces, decorative cornicing and ceiling rose, sash windows allowing plenty of natural light and tall ceilings to present elegant, modern-day living which flows well across three floors. Set within attractive gardens and grounds extending to about 1.85 acres, the hall offers a fabulous lifestyle in an easily accessible location.

      The front door opens to the entrance hall from where the main reception rooms flow. The drawing room boasts oak flooring, an open fireplace with marble surround and fine views of the garden. The dining room is opposite and has an oak floor, open fireplace and a window seat overlooking the lawn.

      Glass doors open to an inner hall from which the oak staircase rises to the first floor. There is a snug off with built in bookshelves. The kitchen is well equipped with a range of fitted cupboards and units with granite work surfaces incorporating a microwave, Zanussi coffee machine, American style fridge/ freezer, dishwasher and electric AGA. Double doors open to the magnificent orangery which was added in 2008 benefitting from underfloor heating, windows to three aspects and a door leading out to the garden. A utility room and WC complete the ground floor.

      The staircase rises to a spacious landing. The principal bedroom suite is a lovely double room with an en suite bathroom with underfloor heating, his and hers sinks, a freestanding rolltop bath and a separate shower. There are four further bedrooms including a guest suite with an en suite shower room, three
      double bedrooms and a family bathroom boasting his and hers sinks, a free standing bath and separate shower.

      The cellar is fully tanked and is a great space comprising two rooms and a wine store, currently utilised as a cinema room which would lend itself well for use as a gym/ fitness facility and an office, which has a door to the back garden.


      Outside

      Higher Berse Hall is approached through electric gates and via a private graveled driveway flanked with hornbeam trees and wildflowers which sweeps to reveal the imposing, south facing façade.

      There is ample parking to the front and back of the property along with a double garage with two sets of timber doors and power connected. To the back of the house is an enclosed garden mainly laid to lawn with a stone wall border and heated dog kennel. There are a number of raised herb and vegetable beds along with pedestrian access to the lane.

      The majority of the garden is to the south west of the house and is laid to lawn with an alfresco dining terrace bordered with purple beech hedging featuring a pizza oven, with an orchard beyond offering a selection of fruit trees.

    What I particularly like about Higher Berse Hall is that it offers that fabulous rural lifestyle for the whole family to enjoy, while being so well connected with quick and easy access to Chester and beyond.
