An excellent detached house with spacious accommodation and delightful gardens and grounds
Whitchurch 5 miles, Nantwich 7 miles, Chester 22 miles
Marley Lodge occupies a very pleasant and private position between the villages of Marbury and Wrenbury.
Marbury is a traditional English village with a beautiful Church, village hall and public house, The Swan Inn (currently undergoing refurbishment). Wrenbury has an excellent range of day to day amenities including a shop and post office, a pub, medical centre and a popular primary school. More comprehensive facilities can be found in nearby Nantwich or Whitchurch.
In addition to this there are a number of well-regarded primary and secondary schools in the area including Packwood Haugh, Moreton Hall, Ellesmere College and Shrewsbury School, all of which are within commuting distance.
The City of Chester (16 miles) is one of the north west's leading retail and commercial centres serving a catchment area extending from Manchester to Shrewsbury and covering the whole of North Wales. It provides a comprehensive range of shopping, schooling and leisure facilities, complemented by several out of town retail parks.
Chester also gives access to the motorway network providing a link to other north west and midlands conurbations and to Liverpool and Manchester airports.
The leisure opportunities are also excellent. Portal Golf Club and Carden Park Hotel and Spa both have championship golf courses and a range of other facilities. There are also numerous walks in the area and polo at the Cheshire Polo Ground.
Marley Lodge is only 12 miles from Crewe where there is a regular rail service to London Euston (from 1½ hours).
Marley Lodge is a delightful, Victorian house with spacious accommodation and wonderful grounds.
Approached over a driveway which opens out at the rear of the house to provide plenty of parking.
The property opens into an attractive reception hall with doors leading to the principal reception rooms and rear hall, and access into the cellar. On the left of the hall, the bright and airy drawing room has dual aspect windows and an 'Adam' style fireplace.
Straight ahead, the substantial rear hall (which can comfortably be used as a morning room) leads to the study on one side, and the breakfast kitchen on the other.
The recently modernised kitchen has a range of attractive, handmade units, with an oil-fired four oven AGA the central focus of the room. Beyond the kitchen the utility room takes on the feel of a second kitchen with additional bespoke units, a WC and two doors to outside.
The sitting room is another wonderful reception room, with dual aspect windows and an open fireplace. A door leads through to the spacious dining room (also accessed off the reception hall).
On the first floor there are five generous bedrooms, the master having an en suite bathroom. In addition, there is a family bathroom and separate shower room.
Outside, the gardens and grounds are beautifully stocked. A number of different 'rooms' make the garden a delightful place in which to relax, and include an orchard and two paddocks. (Total area: 3.131 Acres)
