    In a tranquil head of cul de sac location, set 0.23 acre plot and enjoying delightful south west facing garden – terrific four bedroom, two bathroom, three reception detached house with double garage
    Comment from Robert Reed of Gascoigne Halman

    This house enjoys a superb location, being positioned in a tranquil cul de sac on the outskirts of Winsford and close to Darnhall. It is certainly an address which few people will know of – I’ve only been to Petrel Close twice in seventeen years and only three houses have changed hands in twenty years. In other words, this is an address that people don’t move from, and it’s easy to understand why.

    Darnhall is a pretty rural area close to the villages of Church Minshull, Wettenhall, Tarporley and the town of Winsford. It’s a position that provides a pleasing blend of rural character with good amenities.

    The cul de sac is quiet, with well spaced houses and excellent plot sizes. The subject property has a plot of 0.23 acre and within this parking for six cars and a rear garden that is south westerly in aspect and really mature and private.
    The house has been greatly improved by the present owners and developed into a well balanced, highly flexible and impressive family home. Including the double garage, the overall space extends to just over 2,000 square feet.

    Internally there are numerous features but let me highlight my three favourites. The first is the open plan kitchen / family room – the perfect open plan space for the hub of day to day life. The second is the design and quality of the first floor bathrooms and the third is the flexible nature of the layout that can easily suit differing requirements.
    It should also be noted that the current owners previously gained planning consent for a first floor extension above the garage, so if you require a six bedroom house in the future, this has the potential.

    The garden is ideal – large, private, mature, sunny and designed in a way that keeps ongoing maintenance to sensible level. It has been beautifully planned and landscaped with patios, pergola, greenhouse and well stocked raised beds.

    One of the best value houses to come to the market this calendar year, I strongly advise a viewing.

    For a personal description of the property or to arrange a viewing, please contact myself or a member of the team at the Tarporley office.
