THE PROPERTY

A superbly appointed open plan duplex apartment forming part of a historic Listed building close to Chester ACCOMMODATION IN BRIEF - Entrance Hall - Open Plan Dining Room with Seating Area - Sitting Room - Fitted Kitchen - Mezzanine/Study - 2 Double Bedrooms - 2 Bath/Shower rooms (1 en-suite) - Basement with storage facility - Communal grounds - 3 parking spaces, 1 electric charging point DESCRIPTION Backford Hall is an impressive period property Listed Grade II for its special architectural and historic importance. The existing hall is believed to have been built in the middle of the 19th century replacing an older hall and built for a Mr SH Glegg, part of the Birkenhead Family. The building is impressive, Elizabethan Jacobean in style and constructed of red brick on a stone plinth with stone sills, headers and quoins beneath a pitched slate roof with dutch gables and high decorative stone chimney stacks. Backford Hall remained a country house until the 1940's when it was reputedly sold to a shipping company, and then in the 1970's became local authority offices. In recent years the property has been redeveloped, the hall being converted to 11 apartments and a modern housing development built in the grounds. Number 1 is a spacious duplex apartment forming one part of what was the original main body of the house. It provides spacious and superbly appointed accommodation arranged predominantly at ground floor level together with a first floor master suite and mezzanine with glazed balcony and which is presently used as a study but could be an occasional third bedroom.
