Long Lane, Larkton, Malpas

Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
VIDEO AVAILABLE ON REQUEST - Fed up with the humdrum of city/town life and feel the need to "escape to the country"? If so, we may have the property for you!

Okay, so the house itself may not be perfect….

For sure, you are likely to want to replace the kitchen, tweak the decor and upgrade the accommodation generally, but the setting undoubtedly has the 'wow factor!

This mature semi-detached house commands far reaching rural views to the front, side and rear. Not only that, it occupies a wide plot so that there is scope for extending the house (subject to obtaining planning consent), so if you have "grand designs" to create a much larger property with your own choice of layout, fixtures and fittings, this is a blank canvas.

Others may choose to live "the good life" by utilising the gardens to their full extent by growing vegetables and keeping chickens.

In fairness, whatever the profile of the next buyer is, for many this will be bliss! The fact that you could be miles from civilization is also an illusion. There are neighbours nearby and it is well placed for access by car into nearby Malpas with its shops, doctor, dentist, pubs, restaurants and schools.

The house is well placed for travel into Malpas and is within the catchment area for the highly acclaimed Bishop Heber High School and Malpas Alport Primary School or indeed, Bickerton Primary School.

Swift road links provide travel into Whitchurch in the south, Chester to the north and Wrexham to the West.
