This imposing period home is located to the end of a quiet no-through lane at Truemans Way, in the centre of the highly sought-after village of Hawarden, in Flintshire, on the outskirts of Chester.
Situated within walking distance of a wealth of local amenities, including restaurants, cafes, Gladstone's highly acclaimed library, wonderful countryside walks, Hawarden's prodigious 18 hole golf course, cricket and tennis clubs, gyms, and some of the area's most sought-after schools, Riffans is also just a few minutes' drive from Broughton Retail Park and has easy access to fast road and rail links close by, allowing swift passage further into North Wales, towards the Wirral, Liverpool and Manchester.
Originally constructed in 1938, Riffans sits beneath a slate cross-hipped roof and offers perfectly proportioned, family-sized accommodation. The ground floor briefly comprises; entrance porch, opening to reception hall, truly the heart of the house with turned staircase pooling to the centre and cavernous storage beneath, and doors opening to; spacious dual aspect sitting room, with feature fireplace; formal dining room, with fireplace having grate for open fire; kitchen, offering a range of traditionally styled fitted units to three walls, having solid wood front, topped with stone-effect work surfaces, with windows to both the west and east elevations and door opening to; garden room, having fitted storage, personnel doors opening to both driveway and patio, and sliding glazed doors opening to elevated veranda to rear - the perfect vantage point for surveying the wonderful rear garden.
A turned staircase rises from the reception hall to the first floor landing, leading to; master bedroom, enjoying far-reaching panoramic views to front over the Wirral and the Cheshire Plain, and to the rear over the garden, with door opening to en suite shower room, having white suite including double-width shower enclosure with mains pressure thermostatic shower over, pedestal basin and toilet; generously proportioned double second and third bedrooms, both with fitted storage, a good-size fourth bedroom/study and family bathroom, also with white suite including bath with shower over.
Although perfectly well presented and habitable as it stands, opening up the kitchen to the family room and undertaking a programme of cosmetic updating throughout, would lift Riffans to a whole new level in terms of usability, presentation and very likely price point too, making this an all-round worthwhile investment for the new owner.

Occupying circa 0.45 of an acre, to the front Riffans is approached between brick gate posts, supporting twin five-bar gates, and is approached over a wide tarmac driveway offering parking for half a dozen or more vehicles, leading to no less than two garages, both with light and power. A lawn encircles a mature copper beech tree, with mature, well-stock borders to the periphery and a mix of hedges, walls and wire fences to the boundaries.
To the rear enjoys a perfect southerly aspect and is a true gardener's paradise, with great swathes of perfectly manicured lawns punctuated with meandering pathways and well-stocked borders, deep borders to the periphery and a mix of walls, fences and majestic mature trees to the boundaries.
