Whitening Farm is located in an idyllic semi-rural setting on the fringe of the sought-after village of Tattenhall. The property occupies an elevated setting with outstanding southerly views directly across open countryside towards the Peckforton Hills.
Tattenhall offers a broad range of local amenities, including a convenience store, highly-regarded butchers, hairdressers, numerous public houses, restaurants and a doctor’s surgery.
Local recreational opportunities include tennis, squash, cricket and football at Tattenhall Recreational Club, in addition to some beautiful walks along The Sandstone Trail and local mountain biking routes.
On the educational front, Tattenhall Park Primary School is highly-rated, being a feeder school to Bishop Heber, Malpas rated “outstanding” by Ofsted. King’s and Queen’s Schools in Chester offer excellent independent education.
The area is well-placed for commuting to the commercial centres of the North West via the M53, M56 and M6 Motorway Networks, whilst Chester Railway Station provides a direct service to London Euston within two hours.
Whitening Farm is a most appealing property of dressed sandstone construction under natural slate roofing. The property is believed to date back to the 19th Century, once having belonged to the neighbouring Bolesworth Estate. The current owners have enhanced the property during their tenure, now offering a particularly well-presented family home finished to an excellent standard throughout and enjoying an abundance of natural daylight.
Attractive double doors open into an enclosed porch with faux stone flagged flooring, which runs throughout the dining hall and kitchen. Off the porch is a pretty cloakroom with a contemporary two-piece white suite and chrome heated towel radiator. Twin glazed doors open into an inner reception and dining hall, currently being used as a snug, featuring an original exposed beamed ceiling with a lovely view to the front garden.
The well-proportioned kitchen incorporates a breakfast area and is fitted with an attractive range of cabinets with oak block work surfaces incorporating a twin Belfast sink. Integral appliances include a fridge, freezer, ceramic hob with extractor hood and electric oven. The breakfast area has superb far-reaching views across the garden and adjoining countryside.
To the rear of the property, with a southerly aspect, is the sitting room having light oak engineered flooring and a charming exposed chimney breast housing a Parkray double-sided Cleanburn stove. The sitting room has wonderful dual aspects and patio doors open to a paved terrace. Adjoining the sitting room is a large reception room, also featuring light oak engineered flooring and benefits from the dual-sided multi-fuel stove.
To the first floor is a spacious landing with attractive spindle balustrade and space for a seating area. The master bedroom is particularly noteworthy and of excellent proportions, including bespoke built-in wardrobes and enjoys a luxurious en suite bathroom featuring a free-standing double-ended contemporary bath, white sanitaryware and a walk-in glazed shower with porcelain tile flooring. There are three further excellent sized double bedrooms, all enjoying tremendous views, served by a spacious family bathroom with high-quality white sanitaryware, including a double-ended clawfoot bath and corner shower cubicle with thermostatic shower.
Whitening Farm is approached through a gated entrance onto a sweeping gravel driveway providing extensive parking facilities, in turn leading to a recently constructed double oak-framed carport with natural slate roofing. The established front garden is mainly laid to lawn, bordered by mature hedging with numerous specimen trees, including apple and features an attractive ornamental pond. A gate to the side of the house leads to the south-facing gardens with a raised decked seating area offering a wonderful place to sit with views towards the Peckforton Hills. The rear gardens are mainly lawned with well-stocked borders and beds and include a pretty summer house at the far end.
The gardens are entirely private, adjoining open countryside and are a particular feature of this appealing property.
