A superb conversion of a John Douglas barn in a popular location close to Chester with a paddock and detached garage
7 The Oaklands is situated within a Conservation Area and occupies an enviable position, about 5 miles from the centre of Chester, adjoining open countryside.
Chester is served by excellent state and private day schools including King's (4 miles) and Queen's (6 miles), Abbey Gate College, and The Firs. Chester is home to the oldest racecourse in the country, which provides an extensive programme of horse racing and other events including polo. There is a thriving restaurant and café culture in the city and many other leisure amenities, including first class golfing, tennis and other recreational sports.
The A55 Expressway (leading to the M53) and A483 are 3 and 2.5 miles respectively permitting easy access west along the North Wales coast and east towards the motorway network and for commuting to Liverpool, Manchester and Warrington.
For travel further afield there is a direct rail service from Chester to London Euston (from 2 hours) and international airports in both Liverpool and Manchester.
7 The Oaklands is a stylish and spacious barn conversion which offers flexible accommodation for families and downsizers alike. Originally designed by John Douglas in 1885, the barns were converted by an award-winning developer in 2007 to form this small and exclusive development of seven properties. The development is approached along a long and beautiful, private road. A pillared gateway then leads onto a gravel drive where there is a double garage (with side door access from the garden) along with three allocated parking spaces and an additional space in front of the property.
From the courtyard parking area, the front of the property is accessed over a pathway which also provides direct access onto the garden.
On entering 7 The Oaklands, the light and quality of finish is immediately apparent. The large entrance hall has doors leading to the various rooms on the ground floor including a WC (with cupboard housing the boiler) and the utility room which has a useful cloakroom area and shelving.
From the hall, double doors open onto the sitting room which is a superb space with French doors to either side of the chimney breast, leading out to the walled garden.
Adjacent is the kitchen with a spacious dining area. The kitchen is beautifully finished and provides ample storage as well as a central island. There are doors to the rear and side which lead onto the garden and allow plenty of light.
On the first floor there are three generous bedrooms (one with an en suite shower room) and a large family bathroom. In addition there is an informal sitting room which could easily be used as the fifth bedroom.
The master bedroom is located on the second floor and takes full advantage of the wonderful views across open countryside. To one side is a large en suite bathroom and to the other a useful and spacious dressing area.
Outside, the delightful walled garden wraps around the property, and features a pretty patio area in which to enjoy al fresco dining. From the driveway there is gated access onto the paddock (about 0.75 acres).
