Castle View, Alpraham Green, CW6 9LJ
Set in a little over 3 acres, enjoying fabulous rural views and located in a tranquil location - a delightful 4 bedroom semi detached cottage extending to 2,000sqft and also having the benefit of attractive outbuildings - NO ONGOING CHAIN.
INTRODUCTION Wright Marshall estate agents are delighted to offer for sale the individual property known as Castle View. The property is located on Alpraham Green, a little known rural lane that is tranquil, private and where properties rarely become available to buy. The present owners have been in the property for 46 years and are now downsizing to a nearby village. The property is therefore available with no ongoing chain. The sale of Castle View represents to the buyer the very rare opportunity to acquire a delightful four bedroom semi detached residence of surprising size and excellent character set in truly beautiful gardens, grounds and paddocks extending in total to 3.22 acres or thereabouts. A viewing is strongly recommended to appreciate what a superb location Castle View enjoys.
Internally the accommodation offers attractive living space that is versatile and surprisingly spacious. The accommodation opens with an entrance vestibule which in turn leads to an entrance hall. The living room has a floor to ceiling Cheshire brick fireplace and open dog grate. On the opposite side of the house is the dining room which has a lovely front aspect window and has a further brick fireplace. At the rear of the house is the breakfast room and kitchen which are arranged in 'L' shaped format whilst there is also a very spacious rear hall together with a cloakroom and utility/boiler room.
At first floor level there are four bedrooms, three of which are doubles and one which is a smaller single. There is also a separate shower room. The house has been superbly maintained by the present clients over many years standing with a continual unrolling programme of works to keep the property in good order. It is envisaged that a future buyer will wish to update some domestic fittings and this is to be taken account of within the asking price. It should also be stressed that there is tremendous potential to extend the property subject to the necessary planning permissions being granted.
Castle View though is, as the name suggests, as much about the outside and the rural aspects as it is the house itself. The property has total grounds of 3.22 acres, wonderful rural views and a general sense of privacy and tranquillity that cannot be overstated. The outbuildings include a double garage and three section stable block. Due to the amount of land, the property would be ideal for those with an equestrian interest and it is rare to be able to buy such an amount of land in a wonderful location under £600,000 in this area of Cheshire.
Castle View is an exceptional one off rural property that is tranquil and private yet amazingly connected and central. An early viewing is strongly recommended.
