Stoneleigh Court lies in a semi-rural setting in the village of Burton, to the west of the popular village of Rossett. Rossett offers an excellent range of local amenities, including a dentist, village store, Co-operative store, doctor’s surgery, restaurants and public houses, whilst Chester and Wrexham provide a more comprehensive offering.
There are local state primary and secondary schools in the area, whilst King’s and Queen’s Schools in Chester offer highly-regarded independent education.
Road communications are excellent, being close to the A483, Wrexham Bypass, connecting to the Chester Southerly Bypass facilitating access to the National Motorway Network. In addition, there are frequent bus services to both Wrexham and Chester.
The Chester Business Park, Wrexham Industrial Estate and Deeside Industrial Park are all within a short daily commute, as are the larger commercial centres of Liverpool and Manchester.
Stoneleigh Court is a significant wing of Stoneleigh Hall, a handsome and prominent Victorian country home dating back to the 1830’s. The property was subdivided and converted into four separate dwellings circa 2006.
The accommodation is set out over three floors and features high ceilings and some wonderful period features throughout.
An attractive part-glazed panel door with sidelights opens into a beautiful family room with tiled flooring running through into the adjoining kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with a range of modern high-gloss cabinets with an extensive range of integrated appliances, including a Normende combination microwave oven, integrated fridge, freezer, dishwasher and extractor hood. The kitchen also features a Siemens double oven with a Siemens electric four-ring hob. Leading off the kitchen is a cloakroom with WC.
At the heart of the house is a magnificent dining hall, having a vaulted ceiling incorporating a noteworthy stained-glass ceiling light flooding the landing and dining hall with natural daylight. To the front of the house is a well-proportioned drawing room featuring a composite stone fireplace accommodating a living flame LPG log-effect fire basket, and a bay window with glazed door has southerly views to the garden. From the kitchen, an enclosed spindle staircase leads down to the lower ground level into a spacious hallway with a shower room with WC off. The lower ground level also incorporates a well-proportioned double bedroom with glazed French doors to the outside with steps leading up to the formal garden. Also to the ground floor is a utility room with fitted work surfaces incorporating a Hotpoint condensing tumble drier and a Bosch washing machine. Off the utility room is a substantial vestibule, currently being used as an elaborate walk-in wardrobe.
A grand spindle staircase with polished handrails and newel posts rises to a mezzanine landing giving access to two double bedrooms; one of which enjoys a luxurious en suite shower room. There is also a family bathroom fitted with a contemporary white suite. The stairs rise to a galleried landing offering space for a home office or seating area, in turn leading to the master bedroom. The beautifully appointed master bedroom benefits from bespoke fitted wardrobes and enjoys a contemporary white en suite shower room, which is fully tiled.
