LAST ONE REMAINING - AN IMAGINATIVELY CONVERTED BARN APPOINTED TO A HIGH STANDARD THROUGHOUT WITH LARGE SOUTH FACING GARDEN, OCCUPYING AN EXREMELY PRIVATE SETTING. ACCOMMODATION • Porch • Hall • Kitchen/breakfast room with open plan dining and seating areas • Lounge • Utility • Separate w.c. • Master suite comprising double bedroom and en suite shower room • 2 further double or twin bedrooms • Family bathroom • Extensive parking • Lawned gardens to the front and rear with terrace Chapel House - SOLD DESCRIPTION Merchant and Chapel Houses are a pair of superbly designed individual homes which occupy a lovely woodland setting within the grounds of Hinderton Hall, close to the market town of Neston on the Wirral Peninsula. They form part of a range of historic traditional buildings designed by Alfred Waterhouse, a well-known architect who designed the Natural History Museum in London, The Lime Street buildings in Liverpool and Eaton Hall for the first Duke of Westminster. They were originally agricultural buildings to Hinderton Hall and latterly used as office space until they became unoccupied, being sold from the Hall in 2017. They have since been subject to a comprehensive and sympathetic scheme of renovation by developers Kartre Ltd who have created two impressive country properties ideally suited to a wide spectrum of the market including the family buyer, single person or couple, either professional or perhaps those downsizing. Beyond and attached to Plot 3 is the remainder of the range which is in separate ownership and in the course of being converted to two additional residential units. The properties are constructed of sandstone and brick with a traditional sandstone front facade, the rear elevations having off white self coloured render, under a slate roof with parapet and benefit from connection to all mains services and with fibre broadband connection available. They have been comprehensively converted with the use of high quality materials throughout including insulation, gas fired heating and water system with combi boilers and full re-wire, together with a contemporary interior featuring high spec bespoke kitchens and bathroom fittings and floor coverings to include quality tiling, carpets and engineered oak. In both cases the accommodation is arranged over two floors and well laid out with plenty of natural light, making the most of the open views across the adjoining fields from the first floor and with the main everyday living space having double aspects to the front and rear, and sliding doors opening directly to the main gardens. The kitchen with open plan seating and dining areas forms the main focal point of both houses and provides fantastic everyday living spaces. The kitchens feature bespoke hand-made and painted units with extensive cupboards and drawers beneath composite granite and oak work surfaces, one and a half bowl stainless steel sink unit with mixer, a long peninsula island with breakfast bar, tall integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher, and integrated cooking appliances to include Boch electric oven and ceramic hob. At the working end of the room will be porcelain tiled flooring with engineered oak flooring in the seating and dining areas, where there is a television connection for a wall mounted device and plenty of space for a dining table and chairs, and comfy seats/sofas with coffee table. Both properties also have an additional formal reception room, plot 2 having an interesting octagonal room with vaulted ceiling and a stone detailed arched window to the front, plot 3 having a large picture window overlooking the garden at the rear. At first floor level each property has three bedrooms, a useful study area and 2 bath/shower rooms, the latter being en-suite to the master bedroom. In addition to the main bedroom plot 2 has two twins, plot 3 having an additional double and twin, all of which have plenty of space for a wardrobe and desk. LOCATION The properties occupy an extremely private and peaceful setting within the Hinderton Hall Estate, accessed via a long drive and with a lovely aspect across adjoining fields and woodland. Indeed the immediate surroundings are impressive and home to all sorts of wildlife, and helps to create the blend of an established mature environment with the quality of a recently renovated building. Neston and the popular village of Willaston are both within 2 miles of the property and provide local services for everyday needs with shops, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants, doctors and dentist surgeries, as well as high street banks. Chester and Liverpool are both about 10 miles away which offer a wide range of shopping, schooling and leisure facilities. On the recreational front there is a wide selection of sporting facilities nearby including the well-known Neston Cricket Club which also offers tennis and hockey, rugby club at Clatterbridge and several golf courses locally including Royal Liverpool and Heswall. Schooling is well catered for with primary schools in Neston, Willaston, Thornton Hough and Heswall and a choice of both state and private secondary schools nearby including West Kirby Grammar, Caldy Grammar, Birkenhead and The King's and Queen's Schools in Chester. COMMUNICATIONS Despite the properties' semi-rural location they benefit from excellent road communications with the A540 Parkgate Road providing fast access to Chester and the M56 motorway. Liverpool and Chester are both within easy commuting distance as is Manchester via the M56. For travel further afield there is a 2 hour inter-city rail service from Chester to London Euston via Crewe with a link from Hooton, and there are international airports at both Liverpool and Manchester. OUTSIDE The properties are approached via a tarmacadamed drive through woodland to brick paved parking areas which have a path to the front doors and are edged with galvanised wrought iron estate fencing, beside which are lawned areas. To the rear of the buildings and facing south east are the main gardens which are laid to lawn and sub-divided by close board timber fencing with, at the far end, a mature hedge. There are no other dwellings immediately to the front or the rear of each property and so both enjoy a high level of privacy. DIRECTIONS To reach the properties from Chester travel in a north westerly direction along the A540 Parkgate Road for approximately 9.5 miles to the crossroads with traffic lights on the edge of Neston, next to which is the Hinderton Arms Public House. Continue straight over and the entrance for The Hinderton Hall Estate including the two barn conversions will be seen on the right hand side. Continue along the drive, which is initially shared, bearing left at a fork, and continue for a further 50 yards or so bearing left in front of the properties where the parking areas for each will be seen.
