The property sits in an idyllic semi-rural setting on a quiet lane, on the fringe of the popular village of Saughall to the north west of Chester City Centre. Saughall offers a range of local amenities, including a Co-operative food store, public houses, a surgery and church. The nearby City of Chester offers a comprehensive range of amenities, as does Liverpool which is further afield.
Local state schooling includes Saughall All Saints Primary School and Upton-by-Chester High School. Excellent independent schooling is available at King’s and Queen’s Schools in Chester.
The property is well-placed for commuting to the commercial centres of the North West via the M56, which is within two miles, leading onto the M53 and M6 motorway networks. Chester Railway Station offers a direct service to London Euston within two hours.
Kingswood Lane Farm is an exceptionally well-presented bungalow built circa 2006 to a high specification and finish throughout. The property benefits from extensive two-storey and single-storey brick outbuildings, having considerable scope for conversion (subject to the necessary consents). The property will appeal to buyers requiring an annexe for dependent relatives, or home office and leisure facilities or as an “Airbnb” rental property.
The property sits centrally within its gardens, offering privacy and rural views.
A recessed porchway gives way to an attractive composite door with sidelights opening into the outer reception hall having oak plank flooring, which runs throughout much of the reception areas. Off the outer hallway is a spacious WC fitted with a quality white suite. Double French doors open into the inner hallway featuring an attractive intricate plaster coved ceiling.
The hub of the house is a spacious breakfast kitchen fitted with a bespoke range of cabinets by Mayfair Kitchens, with breakfast bar, all under granite work surfaces. A comprehensive range of appliances include a Neff ceramic hob with extractor hood and microwave, a double eye-level electric oven, dishwasher, wine cooler and a Samsung American-style fridge freezer with ice maker. Oak plank flooring runs throughout the kitchen into a spacious breakfast area, having views through French doors to the gardens. Conveniently situated off the kitchen is a utility room with single drainer sink unit, plumbing for laundry appliances and an adjoining walk-in pantry.
The lounge sits to the rear of the house and features a noteworthy stone carved fireplace housing a multi-fuel stove, oak plank flooring and glazed French doors with sidelights opening onto an extensive natural stone paved terrace. To the front of the house is a well-proportioned dining room featuring an electric coal-effect fire with an attractive surround, and a bay window affording views to the central courtyard.
The master bedroom is particularly noteworthy, fitted with bespoke wardrobes and enjoys a luxurious fully tiled en suite shower room with walk-in shower and contemporary white suite. There are three further double bedrooms; bedroom four being currently utilised as a study. A luxurious family bathroom is fitted with a walk-in shower with drench head, panelled bath, vanity sink unit and WC. The bathroom is fully tiled with attractive porcelain tiles, a chrome heated towel rail and adjoining airing cupboard housing the pressurised hot water cylinder.
It should be noted the property benefits from solar power installation with 16 panels, which serves the current owner’s electricity requirements, in addition to a supplement from Npower.
Across the courtyard, is an L-shaped range of brick outbuildings under natural slate roofing; the latter being replaced approximately seven years ago. The outbuildings currently comprise four principal rooms, with scope to reinstate the second floor within Barns One and Two to create a two-storey building. Attached to the outbuildings is a storeroom/garage with double doors and an adjoining open twin carport. The outbuildings benefit from power, lighting and an alarm system and have considerable development potential.
Gardens and grounds
The property is approached through a gated entrance onto an extensive recently laid resin-bound gravel driveway edged by kerbstones and lawned borders. To the south of the house are extensive lawned gardens with gravel and paved laid seating areas. A pergola supporting a mature wisteria gives access to the rear gardens, having an extensive natural stone paved terrace. At the bottom of the rear garden is a timber-framed building with covered terrace overlooking an ornamental pond. The gardens are predominantly enclosed by established native hedging offering immense privacy whilst retaining views across the fields to the south west.
In addition to the principal entrance, the property also benefits from two additional vehicular access points further along Kingswood Lane, offering additional parking facilities, ideal for caravan or boat storage.
