Foel Farm is well situated within an elevated plot, extending to approximately 1.14 acres and commands an enviable position, enjoying far-reaching panoramic views across the Clwydian Range and further afield towards the Cheshire Plains.
The property itself is located on the fringes of the popular village of Rhosesmor, Flintshire approximately 4 miles northwest of the market town of Mold. In terms of amenities, the village of Rhosesmor is a quiet community, centred around St. Pauls church and the village park, with the nearby town of Mold providing a wide array of supermarkets, public houses and eateries as well as a particularly well stocked high street, and it also hosts a weekly traditional market. The roman city of Chester provides further options again.
On the schooling front, the area is partically well stocked with numerous state primary and secondary schools in the surrounding villages and in Mold. With outstanding independent schools such as Kings and Queens schools in Chester.
The property is well placed for commuting to the commercial centres of the northwest, with the North Wales Expressway accessible within 4 miles from the property, both Chester and St. Aspah business parks are within a short daily commute. Chester train station offers a direct service to London, Euston, within 2 hours.
The main residence of Foel Farm dates back to 1650. The property is steeped in traditional features synonymous with this style of property, including exposed beams and stone walls. The property has undergone extensive renovation in recent times, with care taken to retain the original character features.
The property also comes with the rare opportunity to acquire a self-contained cottage, which does have the option of combining the two residences into a singular dwelling once more; as well as an award winning glamping pod, with further planning granted to add an additional pod should one require and finally, a spacious warehouse unit, with the benefit of 3 phase electrics and plumbing.
The main residence is entered via a sizeable storm porch which in turn opens into a central hallway, with downstairs WC. Directly off the hallway and to the left, is a well-appointed family reception room, with dual aspect windows, allowing the room to flood with natural light and views to be enjoyed from a window seat overlooking the rear garden and further afield. To the opposite side of the hallway is a charming dining room under oak flooring, with imposing feature stone inglenook fireplace fitted with a woodburning stove and seating area within the fire surround itself. The dining room also hosts the staircase. A particular point of note for the dining room is that it also contains a doorway which has been cleverly disguised as a bookcase which leads directly into the cottage kitchen; this could be removed to provide access directly into the adjoining cottage and thus turning the two properties into a more substantial single dwelling. Directly off the dining room steps lead down into a light and roomy conservatory, again under oak flooring, fitted with picture windows and with access to the elevated decking entertaining area.
Flowing directly off the other side of the dining room is a well-appointed breakfast kitchen, under terracotta floor tiles and fitted with a traditional kitchen with a range of floor and wall mounted units under granite work tops, with engraved recess drainer over the sink, with a Leisure classic 90 range cooker. To the other side of the main kitchen area is the breakfast area with recessed fireplace fitted with an Efel oil stove. The kitchen also benefits from its own side entrance which has a small entrance porch before leading out to the parking area.
To the first floor, the principal bedroom is particularly well proportioned, with ample space for free-standing units as well has accommodating an original fireplace. There are a further three bedrooms on the first floor with all the bedrooms serviced by the family bathroom, which is fitted with a free-standing shower enclosure, bath and vanity basin unit. The central hallway on the first floor is worthy of mention in its own right, with exposed timbers above the bathroom door and impressive stonework to the other end.
The cottage, which has its own front entrance, opens immediately into a central entrance hall with convenient understairs storage, which in turn leads into a cosy reception room and a south-facing dining conservatory, the cottage kitchen is fitted with shaker style units under wood effect worktops and overlooks the rear garden.
To the first floor, there are two bedrooms. The principal bedroom benefits from two separate walk-in storage cupboards with both bedrooms serviced by a tastefully designed bathroom, comprising a bath with overhead electric shower, WC and wash hand basin.
The main residence is approached through a double timber gate leading directly onto the property’s parking area, which has space for numerous vehicles. Off the main parking area is a block-built bin store as well as the gas and oil tanks, as well as a further car port area, which is currently utilised as a log store.
The main residence’s garden is particularly charming, surrounded by a dry-stone wall and is predominantly laid to lawn, with a host of native trees, shrubberies and a large raised decked area entertaining area, which allows uninterrupted views across the local landscape.
The cottage garden also benefits from a raised decked area with artificial grass covering and space for a hot tub. The garden then slopes down to a grassed area which in turn flows to the main paddock.
At the side of the property the paddock takes up the majority of the plot and is all laid to grass, with a slight slope down to the border fencing. The paddock also contains the self-contained glamping pod, which is of timber construction under felt tile roof and comprises a welcoming studio style accommodation with shower room. Externally, the glamping pod has its own decked area with covered hot tub.
Finally, there is a large workshop unit, which has previously been rented to provide an additional income. The workshop benefits from 3 phase electricity as well as plumbing and is accessed through a traditional door as well as a metal roller door. The internal area is split over two levels and has an office and WC. Both the workshop and glamping pod benefit from their own gated access, which could be further modified depending on requirements.
