Standing in an elevated position with glorious far-reaching views, Bryn Hall is surrounded by beautiful unspoilt countryside on the Shropshire/Welsh Border, close to the Cheshire Border. Situated to the edge of a small rural hamlet, the house is close to good amenities in the nearby village of Overton-on-Dee and the town of Ellesmere. In an area known as the Wynnstay country, it is noted for its superb riding opportunities and close proximity to a number of equestrian venues.
There are a number of highly-regarded schools in the area including Ellesmere College, Moreton Hall, Packwood Haugh, Oswestry School, Shrewsbury School and Kings and Queens in Chester. Midway between Chester and Shrewsbury, the house also has good access to the A483 and A5 for commuting to a number of further business centres including Wrexham, Telford, Liverpool and Manchester. Regional International airports include Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham.
Bryn Hall is a fine country house situated in an elevated rural position with awe-inspiring views over Shropshire and Cheshire. Built in 1990, on the site of a derelict farmhouse, it has been designed to benefit from the best aspects of classic Georgian architecture, to provide elegant, well balanced and light accommodation. It combines both a well-laid-out and practical space for comfortable everyday living along with attractive formal rooms for entertaining.
The house is built of red brick under a Welsh slate roof and includes many exceptional reclaimed features including notable fireplaces in all the reception rooms and many panelled mahogany doors set in Georgian architraves. Double front doors open to the reception hall with its impressive staircase with barley twist spindles and mahogany handrail, lit by a deep Venetian-style window. Polished oak floors extend into both the triple aspect drawing room with its French windows and into the dining room. Both rooms enjoy far reaching views over the parkland to South Cheshire and beyond. A study enjoys views over the garden to the rear. To the centre of the house is the sitting room with two sets of French doors opening to the garden, roof lights and a wood-burning stove. The traditional breakfast room has a gas-fired AGA range and adjoining fitted kitchen with walk-in larder. The back door opens to an inner hall off which is the well-fitted utility room and cloakroom.
Two staircases give access to the wide first floor landings off which lead five double bedrooms (three with en suite bathrooms) and a family bathroom. The master bedroom is a particularly striking room with its triple aspect, fitted cupboards and en suite bath and shower room.
To the side of the house is an attractive 18th Century timber-framed barn which has been partially converted throughout to include a comfortable, well-laid-out annexe to one end. This includes a fitted kitchen, spacious sitting room with an oak staircase leading to a galleried bedroom study area and a second staircase leading up to a bedroom with en suite shower room. There is a separate laundry, staff sitting room and versatile spaces suitable for a variety of purposes including gym, home office and further living space if required (subject to the necessary planning permission being obtained). The building was restored and re-roofed in 1990 and has the benefit of insulation and gas fired central heating.
Formerly a successful event yard and stud, there is a stable yard with ten loose boxes, feed room, tack room and rug room. A further barn has foaling boxes and a portal-framed barn provides young stock housing. There are further stores and a large insulated barn ideal for workshop and garaging. There is easy access to the all-weather arena, horse walker and to the immediate land to the rear for turning out.
The house stands with sweeping lawns, parkland beyond and stocked gardens to the rear. The exceptionally attractive rolling farmland is of permanent well-maintained pasture with mature hedgerows, woodland belts and wildlife pools. The productive ground is ideal for all-year round grazing for both livestock and horses and is available as a whole or in two lots. Lot 1 includes the house, with the immediate land around it and a belt of mixed woodland, extending in all to 32.15 acres (13.02 ha).
Productive grazing land with mature hedgerows, wildlife pools and woodland belts which extends down to the stream known as the Shellbrook forming the Shropshire/Welsh border. This extends to 39.3 acres (15.92 ha).
