A stunning contemporary house in a private setting with offices and stables on the outskirts of one of West Cheshire's most sought-after villages. Key features - A striking, contemporary family home - Positioned in a fantastic setting with countryside views - Situated in one of Chester's most sought-after locations - Beautifully presented accommodation and grounds - Self-contained annexe with versatile space - About 11.26 acres Set in about 11.26 acres, Parkfields Farm is a fabulous contemporary family home, built in 2012 by the current owners to a very high specification. It is orientated to take best advantage of the light and the modern design and the use of up to date building techniques make for a wonderful living space. The property is in an excellent position in the popular village of Christleton, and is set within gardens and grounds and approached via a long private drive with electronic gates. It makes for a wonderfully balanced family home, with an internal layout perfect for family living, and an excellent blend of privacy, security and good access provided by the location. Acknowledging their own requirements as a family, the owners' vision was to create an attractive property which perfectly marries the elements of cutting edge design, practicality and ease of maintenance. With such an impressive setting to make the most of the opportunity to link the interior and exterior was important, something they have excelled in achieving. The house sits well within its grounds and the long drive offers a keen sense of anticipation. The garaging is set a little distance away from the front of the house, providing an unobstructed view of the principal elevation from the main gates. There is a turning circle and other hard landscaping with specimen plants and trees. The centrally positioned front door opens into an impressive hall with a polished Travertine tiled floor, a cloakroom, an American walnut stair case with open treads and a view through large glazed panels to a subterranean decked area beyond featuring a stunning outside fireplace feature. The more formal entertaining space lies to the right hand side with drawing room and dining room linked by a double sided Barbas wood burning fire with Chesneys stone fire surrounds. To the left of the hall is the outstanding family space. At its heart is a superb, bespoke, Tom Howley kitchen with a Sub Zero fridge and freezer, an island unit, 4 oven Aga and integrated Miele appliances. A conveniently positioned utility room offers further storage space. Behind the kitchen is a family room with a Chesneys fireplace and a dining area within a glazed garden room featuring large bi-fold doors. The staircase serving the ground and first floors extends into the lower ground floor with a hallway, leading through to the cinema room, games room and occasional bedroom. The games room and bedroom were previously knocked through to create one larger space, which was originally used as a gym. A half landing provides direct access to the deck. On the first floor is an impressive master suite with a stunning en suite bathroom and dressing room with the master suite opening onto a large private sun deck. There are four further bedrooms on this floor, all with en suite bathrooms. Next to the house is a single storey annexe. It is currently arranged with an open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room opening onto an enclosed garden, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. This is ideal for use by staff or relatives and could easily be adapted for a home office or leisure use. The hardwood decked area at the rear of the house is particularly impressive. It is accessed via steps from the garden and a door from the lower ground floor. It is arranged as a wonderful, sheltered sun deck or dining terrace complete with an open fire on a raised hearth and flower beds in attractive raised planters. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with raised planting at the front of the house. The house and gardens are framed by a series of paddocks offering privacy and the opportunity for equestrian uses. There is a separate stable block incorporating boxes and a tack room a convenient distance from the main house.
