4 3 2
A unique opportunity to own this converted farm, offering all of the conveniences and flexible living that the modern family can need.

Originally part of an early 19th century farm complex, the Tithe map of 1846 records the site as owned by John Ralph Shaw and occupied by William Nielson.

Restored in the early 2000's and then taken on by the current owner in 2019 and transformed into a modern family home. When you walk around the property you can see the thickness of the external walls giving you some insight into the original structure and how well it was built. This helps regulate the temperature in the house, keeping it cool in summer and warm in the winter. All of the internal window sills are marble.

A perfect indoor/outdoor home, this house offers an enormous paved and cobbled driveway one you have entered via the remote electronic gate. The front of the property also features extensive lawns behind the gate and the stone-built boundary wall. The grounds are completely enclosed providing a safe haven for both children and pets alike.

The 9-metre-wide living room encompasses enough space for the largest family as well as room to dine. It also offers access via sliding doors to the wonderful rear garden. The kitchen stretches from the front to back of the house and features a range of fitted units and a sparking grey, granite work surface.

The bedrooms are split over the top two floors, providing ample sizes to stop any sibling rivalry and arguments over who gets what. However, the Master suite on the second floor must be reserved for the proud owners as this home, stretched across the full width of the property and included an ensuite with two sinks, large shower and jacuzzi bath.

The rear garden provides the kind of activities that you would normally have to pay for! Zip wire, climbing wall, multiple seating areas, even an outdoor TV for those future sporting event parties.

Alongside the property is a large double garage, either to be used for storage of the usual family detritus, or space to park two cars (should the driveway not provide sufficient space) or potentially to be converted into an office, home gym or dance studio – you decide.

Entry is controlled by the remotely operated, electronic gate which then leads you up the granite flagged driveway to the stone and cobbled area directly in front of the house. You are then greeted by the stone built, impressive porch with oak front door.

The porch provides ample space for the usual accoutrements of outdoor life, allowing you to leave the wellies and coats behind as you enter the living space.

The porch and the hall feature low maintenance, luxury wood effect, Karndean flooring.

Rear gardens
The garden at the rear has been designed very firmly with families in mind – of all ages. On the other side of the boundary fence is Arrowe Park Golf Course, so even though there are large, mature trees proving shelter, you will never be overlooked. There is a paved patio area directly accessed from the house plus a new addition of what looks like decking but is actually constructed from stone!
A legacy of the farm's original heritage remains, in what appears to be a grinding stone along side a water channel, at the end of this is a stone-built, out building. The mature trees have been put to great use providing anchorage for a zipwire, plus a climbing frame and other outside activities. To ensure the garden meets the needs of all family members, the owners have installed an outside TV for those moments that you don't want to miss.

Double Garage 6.00m (19' 8') x 5.50m (18' 1')
