A handsome country residence with rural views, equestrian facilities and land in all extending to approximately 4.6 acres.
SituationPippin House sits in an idyllic semi-rural setting on the edge of the popular villages of Marford and Rossett, to the south west of Chester. The property enjoys tremendous open views across prime countryside and benefits from tremendous privacy.
Both Marford and Rossett offer a broad range of local day-to-day amenities, whilst Chester and Wrexham provide a more comprehensive offering.
On the recreational front, the area offers some wonderful walking and cycling routes, golf at Wrexham Golf Club and Carden Park Golf Resort, and horse racing at Bangor-on-Dee and Chester Roodee Racecourses.
Local schooling is well-provided with primary schools at The Roft School, Marford and St Peter's Primary School, Rossett; both feeder schools to Darland High School, Rossett. Highly regarded independent education is available at King's and Queen's Schools in Chester, whilst Ellesmere College offers a local school bus pick-up service.
The area is well-positioned for commuting to the commercial centres of the North West, being within a short drive of the A483, connecting onto the Chester Southerly Bypass facilitating access to the National Motorway Network. Wrexham Industrial Estate, Deeside Industrial Park and Chester Business Park are all within a daily commute, as are the larger cities of Manchester and Liverpool, both served by International Airports. Chester Railway Station offers a direct service to London Euston within two hours.
The propertyPippin House is a handsome and distinctive bespoke country property, built circa 2001 by Harvey Homes, a highly reputed local developer. The property was designed by the acclaimed local architect, Brian Lloyd in a traditional style, with distinctive tracery windows with sandstone sills.
The property has been built to a particularly high specification, using reclaimed Cheshire brick, incorporating Inglenook fireplaces, exposed beams and high-quality fixtures and fittings throughout.
The property will appeal to families looking for rural idyll with privacy, whilst the land and stabling will appeal to those with an equestrian interest, but equally to buyers simply requiring general amenity land.
The accommodationA distinctive oak-framed pitched canopy porch gives way to the front door, in turn opening into an imposing reception hall having light oak floorboards which run throughout much of the ground floor accommodation. The hallway features a grand oak central staircase and provides access to a WC and cloaks cupboard. Double doors open off the reception hall into a well-proportioned sitting room featuring a wonderful brick Inglenook fireplace with overmantel and quarry tiled hearth, fitted with a cast-iron gas stove fire. Across the hallway is a snug, also featuring a cast-iron gas stove fire within a light oak surround with quarry tiled hearth.
At the heart of the house is a large family kitchen with dining and seating areas having exposed reclaimed beams and glazed French doors to the rear paved terrace. The kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of hand-painted cabinets under granite work surfaces, including a central island with breakfast bar. The focal point of the kitchen is a gas Range cooker with extractor hood within a brick recess and there is broad range of integrated appliances, including a dishwasher, microwave and twin fridge and freezers. The family sitting area also features a wonderful brick Inglenook with oak overmantel incorporating a cast-iron gas stove fire.
To the rear of the property is a spacious reception hall with access to the rear of the house through a boot room. Off the rear hallway is a WC and utility room fitted with a range of cabinets and plumbing for laundry appliances. A contemporary media room has views through a pretty bay window to the formal gardens.
Pippin House benefits from a principal and secondary staircase leading to an interlinked first-floor landing offering adaptable living and bedroom accommodation, ideally suited to accommodate a dependent relative, privacy for teenagers or ideal for offering 'Airbnb'.
On the first floor is an impressive master bedroom with luxurious en suite bathroom having a clawfoot bath and power shower. There are five further double bedrooms, all having wonderful rural views. Bedroom two benefits from a walk-in wardrobe, which could be adapted to create additional en suite facilities, where required. The bedrooms are served by two family bathrooms, again both having free-standing clawfoot baths and power showers.
Gardens and groundsPippin House sits behind an imposing brick splayed entrance with remote gates opening onto an expansive gravel driveway leading to the front of the house and the garage block. Off the front driveway is a large enclosed hardstanding, ideally suited to accommodate a boat, caravan or horsebox where required, in addition to other vehicles. Formal gardens sit to the front and rear of the property, having an easterly and westerly orientation respectively, beautifully landscaped with stone paved terraces, well-stocked borders and numerous specimen and young fruit trees.
To the north of the house with a field gate access is the smaller of the two paddocks, which includes a substantial timber-framed L-shaped stable block, currently incorporating two large stables (which could be sub-divided), two further standard loose boxes and a tack room. The stabling benefits from lighting and power points. Beyond the smaller paddock is the larger field enclosed by mature native hedging interspersed with wonderful oak trees. The land is flat and particularly suited for equestrian use, but would also accommodate a variety of small livestock, but equally would serve various recreational opportunities.
The elaborate garage block benefits from twin remote doors with a separate personnel door to the side, giving access to a shower room with WC. Stairs rise to a large semi-vaulted room, currently being used as a home office with gymnasium. The first floor also benefits from wash facilities, electric wall heaters and porthole windows afford wonderful views.Read more
