An imposing Grade II Listed country house dating from circa 1790 together with second floor self-contained flat, a large detached garage block with consent for conversion, large and well stocked gardens, dovecote and small paddock - the whole extending to about 1.56 acres. The accommodation affords: hall, drawing room, dining room, kitchen, library, orangery, utility room, wine cellar; first floor landing, master bedroom with dressing room and en suite shower room, three further double bedrooms (one en suite shower room) and family bathroom; second floor self-contained flat with separate entrance, lounge, kitchen diner, two double bedrooms and bathroom; long sweeping driveway to a large two storey detached garage block with consent to create a two bedroom annexe; delightful formal gardens, enclosed paddock to rear with modern dovecote. Located in secluded and mainly wooded setting on the periphery of this village community. Chester 12 miles. Mold 8 miles. Wrexham 5.5 miles.
The house is located on the periphery of this small village nestling in a secluded rural valley some five and a half miles west of Wrexham. The Hall is well placed for access towards Chester, Mold and Wrexham, which provide a comprehensive range of facilities together with excellent road links and the A483 Wrexham by-pass, which interconnects with the Chester southerly by-pass some eight miles distant.
Ffrith Hall is considered to be a fine example of a late Georgian villa, which was commissioned in 1790 by the steel magnate John Wilkinson of Wilkinson Steel fame. The house was built for their estate manager, who ran the former Brymbo Hall Estate incorporating Wilkinson's own private residence set in over 500 acres of land and the renowned Brymbo Steel Works which closed in 1990.
Ffrith Hall is deserving of its Grade II Listing, being an imposing three storey house with an attractive stucco facade, decorative pillars and symmetrical sash windows under a slate roof. It occupies a slightly elevated position with a pleasing rural aspect to the front over the gardens, also of note as they are traversed by Offa's Dyke, which is evident by the camber at the front of the house, and pleasing views beyond over open farmland.
To one side is a modern purpose-built two storey garage block, which benefits from planning consent for conversion to provide ancillary accommodation to the main house, but has scope for a variety of uses to include a home office. Internally, the accommodation is typical of a Georgian house of this era with large central hall and landings, with well proportioned accommodation arranged around.
