Property description

Guide Price £500,000 - £525,000.
An attractive Grade II Listed former Rectory


Set in an idyllic semi-rural location on the fringe of the desirable conservation village of Whitford, Llys Mair has pretty views and beautiful landscaped gardens.

In addition to nearby Holywell, the property is within easy reach of Mold (12 miles), Chester (22 miles) and the A55 (less than 2 miles).

Both Holywell and Mold provide good facilities while Chester offers a more comprehensive range of shopping, dining and leisure opportunities. The Theatr Clwyd in Mold is renowned for putting on a number of popular performances throughout the year.

Further recreational opportunities are well catered for, with many scenic walks close to the property, and Holywell Golf Club (about 3 miles).

There are popular schools locally, at both primary and secondary levels. Further schooling options are available in Chester, including The King's School, The Queen's School and Abbey Gate College.


Llys Mair is a beautiful, Grade II Listed former Rectory, positioned within private grounds enjoying views over open countryside.

The property is approached along a gravelled driveway with plenty of space for several cars. There is also vehicular access to the rear of the house via a cobbled courtyard providing access to the outbuildings.

The entrance vestibule leads into the reception hall. This is a magnificent space with an attractive staircase to the first floor. To the right of the hall is the drawing room; a spacious and bright room with a feature fireplace and a wide bay window overlooking the garden and countryside beyond.

The adjacent study is fitted with an extensive range of book cases and cupboards as well as a Coalbrookdale multi-fuel stove.

On the left of the entrance vestibule is the dining room, another attractive room with dual aspect windows and feature fireplace. There is access through to the kitchen.

The kitchen and utility are fitted with a range of base and wall units and there is plumbing and space for various appliances in both rooms. Beyond the utility a large and useful pantry provides additional storage space. The rear hallway houses a separate WC and provides access to the rear of the property.

On the first floor there are four generous and well-proportioned bedrooms as well as a substantial bathroom and separate shower room.

Outside, there is a patio to the rear of the house and the pretty, main garden is principally to the side. There is a great deal of privacy thanks to established trees and hedging along the boundaries.

A cobbled courtyard (to the rear of the main house) can be accessed off the lane. This provides additional parking and access to a range of outbuildings.

Buyers should note that one of the listed outbuildings to the rear of the property (previously removed) is to be reinstated.
