Gorse Farm is situated close to the England/Wales border, between the villages of Bangor-on-Dee and Worthenbury.
Bangor-on-Dee provides a useful range of local shops and services, including a general store, post office, primary school and a selection of public houses. The well-known National Hunt racecourse is a short distance outside the village. Wrexham is only approximately 7 miles away providing a full range of shopping, leisure and administrative facilities, while the City of Chester is approximately 16 miles distance.
Gorse Farm extends to approximately 102 acres in total and is approached from Wallington Lane, over a short private drive. Indeed, the property enjoys a high degree of privacy and exceptional far reaching views over the River Dee floodplain. The property also has the benefit of frontage to the River Dee along approximately 100 metres of the bank, affording the opportunity for fishing or a quiet sport for a picnic.
The substantial farmhouse is constructed in brick with rendered elevations under a slate roof and has previously been occupied in two parts. The accommodation comprises four reception rooms, kitchen and utility to the ground floor, and presently six bedrooms and two bathrooms to the first floor. The total Gross Internal Area (GIA) is approximately 255 sq m (2,740 sq ft).
Whilst the existing property has scope for refurbishment and improvement, it is considered that the site offers enormous potential for a replacement dwelling. Policies within the existing Wrexham Local Plan would support the principle of a replacement dwelling on the site.
The farm buildings comprise a mix of traditional brick structures and more modern steel and timber-framed cattle sheds, all of which would also benefit from refurbishment and repair. All the land is down to grass and, whilst parts are in need of work, is capable of growing strong crops of grass.
Lot One extends to 49.67 acres, as hatched red on the plan within these particulars, and is accessible from the farm
Lot Two extends to 49.48 acres, as hatched blue on the plan within these particulars, and comprises mainly highly productive and attractive grass meadows. The purchase of this Lot with Lot 1 will give access to the river.
Lot Three extends to 3.31 acres, as hatched green on the plan within these particulars, and adjoins Lot One, but is not readily accessible from this Lot. There is a right of way from Wallington Lane across the neighbouring land to Lot Three.
