An impressive period barn, recently the subject of extension, remodelling and refurbishment to provide a very highly appointed four bedroom home, also benefitting from consents for further extension as required, together with a detached five car garage, the whole set in a private and secluded rural setting amidst landscaped grounds of about one acre.
Mold 8 miles; Chester 11 miles; Wrexham 4 miles.
Located in a sheltered valley in the heart of rolling countryside betwixt Mold, Wrexham and Chester, and about one mile east of the village of Bwlchgwyn, whilst rurally situated it is well placed for ease of access to the main centres and motorway network.
The barn dates from the 18th century and was converted in 2003 to residential use. Subsequently, the present owners have undertaken considerable refurbishment to include a large extension to create a stunning family room / kitchen and remodelled part of the first floor to develop a master bedroom suite with large fully fitted dressing room and luxury en suite. Whilst the house is spacious with three reception rooms and a spectacular high vaulted central dining hall, detailed planning consent has been obtained to provide a much larger home with a large three storey extension to the eastern elevation to create an additional bedroom with en suite shower room, an extension to the sitting room and a media room below, if required. A further consent for a single storey extension to the west side is also available for a boot room, toilet and larder.
The house is approached over a private drive with automated gated entrance, a long sweeping drive thereafter and a large recently extended stone building providing two large, fully insulated and lined garages for five/six cars.
