The Old Rectory is an impressive Victorian property, beautifully renovated, and set back from the road in it's own grounds.
The front door opens into a porch, which leads into the main hall with an open fireplace, doors to the main reception rooms and a wide staircase to the upper floors. The dining room and drawing room both have light and open feel, polished wooden floors and working open fires. Additionally, the dining room has a bay window and French doors opening onto the garden. The sitting room has a feature window in a secluded alcove and useful storage. The kitchen, complete with fitted units, sizeable island, gas and electric Aga, also has French doors opening onto the rear garden, where there is a patio for outdoor entertaining. Off the kitchen is a utility room, cloakrooms, and stairs down to the wine cellar.
On the first floor is the master bedroom suite, as well as 4 further bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate shower room.
On the second floor is currently arranged as a self-contained flat with fitted kitchen/sitting room, a large double bedroom and bathroom. This floor can be accessed separately, but can also be used as further accommodation for the main house.
The Old Rectory is on the edge of Waverton, a popular Cheshire village with a good range of day-to-day services, and is less than 2 miles from Christleton which has further amenities.
The city of Chester offers a comprehensive array of shops and facilities. Recreational activities include racing at the Roodee Racecourse, golf courses, as well as rowing, sailing and canoeing on the River Dee. There is a good local choice of state and private schools, including Waverton Primary School, Christleton High School and the highly regarded King’s and Queen’s Schools and Abbeygate College. The property is well placed for commuting to the commercial centres of the North West, and Chester Station offers a direct line service to London Euston, within 2 hours.
The property stands in lovely mature gardens to the front and rear, including an orchard, and with views over the surrounding countryside. There is a gravel driveway leading along the edge of the grounds up to the main house, where there is a parking and turning area, and a fork to the left leading to the garage and courtyard at the rear.
There is a stable block, garaging, an office, boiler room and stores round a delightful courtyard. These buildings could be converted, subject to the necessary planning consents, to provide further accommodation.
