Dee farm is situated at the end of a private road in a beautiful location near the magnificent Henry Robertson viaduct and with land fronting the River Dee. The village of Chirk (3 miles) offers a good range of day to day services and the centres of Wrexham, Chester and Shrewsbury are accessed via the A483 and A5 trunk roads. There is an excellent range of schools within daily reach including the independent girls school, Moreton Hall (5.5 miles). There are wonderful walks in the area with access to the Welsh Hills, horse racing at Bangor-on-Dee and Chester and golf at Llangollen and Wrexham.
Dee Farm has provided a wonderful family home for the owners who have extensively modernised the farm house in recent years. They have used the land for the grazing of cattle and horses with the equestrian use supported by a manege and stabling within a versatile general purpose building. There is easy access to the land from the farmstead which runs to a sweeping bend in the River Dee. Also accessed from the drive is a derelict former cottage. A planning application has been submitted to convert this into ancillary accommodation to the house.
The farmhouse has clearly been altered and extended over the years and is constructed in brick and stone with a slate roof. An oak front door opens into a hall, used as a Piano Room with a storage cupboard. Next to it is a lobby and a downstairs guest suite with a bedroom and en-suite bathroom. The bedroom has French doors opening onto the garden. At the heart of the house is a wonderful open plan family room with dining and sitting areas and a green oak gable extending into the garden. It is a beautiful light room with exposed timbers and a tiled floor with underfloor heating supplemented by a smart Scandinavian log burner. The high quality kitchen, which is open to the family room and the sitting room, was made by Tegla and has an excellent range of fitted units, a programmable electric Aga and separate gas hob. The sitting room provides a comfortable space for relaxing or entertaining and there are stairs from it to the first floor. Off the kitchen is a utility/boot Room & WC. On the first floor are a further three bedrooms, a bathroom and shower room, one is en suite to the master bedroom.
The property is approached via a private road, to the driveway entrance through double electric gates into a spacious parking sweep to the side and rear of the property. The house is set in delightful gardens with a paved terrace, lawns, various shrubs, plants & an Orchard. Beyond is a wild flower meadow with the backdrop of mixed broadleaf woodland.
Closest to the house is a traditional brick and stone outbuilding, partly on two floors and with a lean to rear storage area. This building would have obvious potential for a range of alternative uses / conversions subject to relevant planning permissions.
