Approached along a magnificent tree-lined avenue, the Wynnstay Hall Estate was once the principal seat of the Watkin Williams-Wynn family. It is thought Saddlers Cottage was occupied by its namesake during the Williams-Wynn’s occupancy. The Hall more latterly was used as a private school, Lindisfarne, for which Saddlers Cottage was the English department. The Estate now comprises numerous luxurious apartments and private houses set amidst parkland and Grade I Listed gardens, which were originally designed in 1777 by Lancelot and “Capability” Brown.
Whilst enjoying a tremendous rural setting, Wynnstay Hall is within a short drive of the nearby villages of Ruabon and Overton-on-Dee (5.5 miles), both of which have excellent local shopping, recreational and educational facilities. The county towns of Chester and Shrewsbury are both readily accessible, offering a comprehensive array of amenities and state schooling. Highly regarded independent education include King’s and Queen’s Schools in Chester and Moreton Hall, Oswestry.
The front door opens into a welcoming reception hall giving access to a ground floor WC and boot room, the latter accommodating the Worcester gas fired combination boiler.
At the heart of the property is a superb breakfast kitchen fitted with a range of bespoke shaker-style cabinets under quartz work surfaces, including a useful breakfast bar incorporating a wine rack. The focal point of the kitchen is a stainless-steel gas range cooker with electric oven, stainless steel splashbacks and a canopy extractor hood. Integral appliances include dishwasher, fridge and separate freezer. The kitchen also features a Franke one and a half bowl under-mounted sink unit and there is plumbing for laundry appliances.
Across the hallway is a noteworthy sitting room featuring a vaulted ceiling with exposed original trusses, a Gasco cast-iron enamel gas stove fireplace and there are delightful views towards the original walled garden to Wynnstay Hall.
A sizeable study is fitted with bespoke cupboards and home workstation but would equally serve as a generous bedroom, and enjoys a large window giving access to a decked terrace from where to enjoy the morning sun.
A turned staircase with metal spindles rises to the first floor giving access to the principal bedroom, fitted with bespoke cupboards, matching bedside tables and drawers, displaying some wonderful exposed original trusses and purlins. The principal bedroom benefits from a luxurious en suite shower room with thermostatic shower and a complementary white suite along with Karndean flooring. Bedroom two is particularly enthralling, with its mezzanine balustrade and benefits from the use of a luxurious family bathroom.
Saddlers Cottage is approached through an exquisite granite sett paved courtyard where the property benefits from a private section of the courtyard. To the rear of the property is an oversized single garage accessed through double wooden doors benefitting from substantial storage area within the roof space, water, lighting and power points. In addition to parking within the garage, the property enjoys a large parking space to the front of the garage.
Saddlers Cottage benefits from use of the extensive parkland gardens which features a large lake, tennis courts and an all-weather sports pitch.
