This elegant detached character property is situated on Station Lane in the sleepy village of Little Barrow, in Cheshire.
Only a few minutes' walk from the equally desirable village of Great Barrow, the property takes advantage of some brilliant local amenities including The Bluebell Cafe, The White Horse pub, a primary school, a thriving cricket club, and is only a few minutes' drive from Chester City itself.
Steeped in history, with the benefit of being a contemporary building, the former bothy has been rebuilt in recent years to create a modern family home, which briefly comprises of a welcoming entrance hallway having plenty of natural light, beautiful oak flooring, separate cloakroom and downstairs WC; living room with wood burning stove inset into a brick fireplace - ideal for those wanting a more intimate reception space; kitchen benefitting from a range of tastefully finished wall and floor units, topped with solid wood butcher block work surfaces, some white goods to include the induction range cooker; separate utility room with further storage and space for other free standing white goods; dining area which offers space for a large dining set and opens through to the garden room which showcases a beautiful exposed oak timber frame, exposed reclaimed brick work, and provides access onto, and views across the stunning back garden, and open Cheshire countryside beyond.
A turned staircase from the hallway rises to the first floor landing, and onto the master bedroom suite which boasts a high specification yet traditionally styled ensuite bathroom with separate shower cubicle, its own dressing room, Juliet balcony which overlooks the rear garden and open countryside; two further double bedrooms, and a large single/small double bedroom which is currently being used as a home office; and a beautifully appointed shower room with contemporary suite.
Attached to the property is the original Methodist Chapel which was built circa 1865. Currently being used as a self-contained Air B&B, but is accessible from the main house itself, this portion of the building is ideal for those looking for an opportunity to have additional income, an annex for a family member, or even for those looking for an impressive reception space. To the ground floor the chapel boasts a substantial multi-purpose reception room having a grand open fireplace, period oak panelling, and a double height vaulted ceiling. To the ground floor is also a beautifully equipped shower room, and a kitchenette/store room. A turned staircase rises from the reception room to a mezzanine level which is currently being used as a fifth bedroom.
