No 3 Rock Terrace is situated in a most convenient setting in the heart of the popular village of Malpas, offering an excellent array of local amenities, including convenience stores, bakery, hairdressers, public houses, restaurants and a first-rate doctor’s surgery.
Local recreational opportunities include cricket, tennis and football at Malpas and District Sports Club, a village recreational ground and youth club, whilst Carden Park Hotel and Golf Course are within seven miles. Malpas has excellent state schooling, including Malpas Allport Primary School and Bishop Heber High School, the latter rated “outstanding” by Ofsted.
Malpas is well-placed for commuting to the commercial centres of the North West via the A41 and A49 leading to the motorway network. Wrexham, Crewe and Chester Railway Stations offer services to London Euston.
No 3 Rock Terrace is a most attractive bay-fronted Victorian terrace, believed to date back to the mid-1870s and situated in the Conservation Area within the centre of the village. The property has since been extended to the rear with the addition of a single-storey extension and loft conversion in 2011, now offering deceptively spacious family accommodation.
An attractive six-panel front door with overlight opens into a welcoming reception hall featuring coloured tiled flooring and partial tongue and groove wall cladding.
To the front of the house is a well-proportioned lounge with a chimney recess within an attractive fire surround with inset Minton Hollins tiles and bespoke cupboards to one recess. Oak plank flooring runs throughout the lounge, which also features dado rails and a ceiling rose. Further along the hallway is the dining room, featuring a brick arched fireplace housing a multi-fuel cast-iron stove, also having bespoke fitted cabinets and book cases to one recess.
At the heart of the house is a spacious kitchen with adjoining breakfast area having a contemporary glazed roof affording plenty of natural daylight. The kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of cabinets with appliances including a free-standing electric oven and hob with extractor hood, integral fridge and freezer, and there is a useful walk-in pantry. Off the kitchen is the utility room with free-standing dishwasher and Bosch dryer and washing machine, along with a single bowl sink unit. An opaque glass sliding door opens into the wet room shower with WC.
Of particular note, the ground floor is warmed by underfloor heating throughout, served by the gas central heating boiler controlled by “Polypipe” digital zoned thermostats.
To the first floor are two double bedrooms and a single bedroom, all having exposed polished original floorboards and served by a luxurious family bathroom with contemporary white three-piece suite, including a shower bath with screen and thermostatic shower. The bathroom is also equipped with a column radiator with towel rail and vanity mirror with lighting.
An enclosed staircase rises to the second floor giving access to a large double bedroom with vaulted ceiling and twin roof lights affording wonderful views to St Oswald’s Church.
The property benefits from a south west facing private courtyard garden, hard landscaped with exterior grade tiles and having a gate to the rear leading to a shared secured alley affording exterior access to the front of the property. The courtyard has outdoor power points, a cold-water supply and lighting.
