OWNER QUOTE: “It has this great sense of space inside and out which is quite rare, it’s a great place to come home and unwind.”

Secluded yet accessible
Set along Forest Street in Weaverham and surrounded by greenery, The Hollies is surprisingly accessible. Well-connected by road links to Manchester, Chester, Liverpool and beyond, this secure home is ideally located for commuters travelling across the country and also those requiring easy access to airports.

Protected by a gated entrance and CCTV alongside a screen of trees to the rear, The Hollies enjoys views to fields, with enough greenery to keep bird-watchers happy.

Imposing kerb appeal
A bank of daffodils is an attractive sight outside the front gate in springtime, as you pull up onto the driveway where, in addition to a large garage, there is parking for around six cars. Old stone walls to either side of the drive add to the kerb appeal of this handsome and imposing red brick home.

Private, enclosed and not overlooked, the sense of separation is immediately apparent as you step beneath the covered porch entrance, through a solid door and into the entrance hall.

A grand arrival, the galleried landing above adds a light and airy feel to the home, whilst oak doors and oak spindles to the staircase blend with contemporary and neutral tones to the walls for a blend of rustic charm and modern simplicity.

On the left, slip through to the study, a handy space for those working from home. This room accommodates the CCTV, broadband and other tech elements. A versatile room it could also be utilised as a playroom or media room.

Light-filled living
Turning right from the entrance hall, arrive at the living room. Light and bright, glazed doors open to the orangery beyond, whilst views abound over the garden and trees to the side. Dressed in neutral décor, wood flooring extends underfoot amplifying the light. A spacious and relaxing room, there is ample room for sofas and armchairs, with spotlighting overhead.

A home with great flow, continue through to the stunning orangery, a recent addition by the current owner.

Harnessing views
Light, bright, airy and warm, this stylish contemporary orangery blurs boundaries between outdoors and in, as bifold doors open seamlessly to the patio and recently landscaped garden beyond. Grey tiled flooring extends underfoot, whilst spotlights skim the ceiling beneath a fan of glazing which draws in views of the sky overhead. Private and enclosed, it creates your own sense of personal space.

Returning to the entrance hall, discover another reception room directly ahead, the comfortable snug, again drawing in verdant views of the garden beyond. A home of great versatility, the flexibility of space makes it ideal for both traditional and blended families.

Feast your eyes
Turning right out of this room, make your way through to the large dining kitchen; another space connected effortlessly with the outdoors, as doors open out to the garden for easy flow and alfresco mealtimes in summer. Wood flooring underfoot in the dining space is replaced by modern tiling in the kitchen, where characterful solid wood cabinetry adds country vibes in keeping with the surroundings.

Integrated appliances include a fridge, freezer, dishwasher, oven and gas hob.

Sneak a peek at the substantially sized utility room, where there is plumbing for a washer and dryer along with additional storage space and a modern combination gas central heating boiler. There is also a handy cloakroom with wash basin and WC.

Returning to the entrance hall, make your way up the wooden staircase to the large, light filled landing.

OWNER QUOTE: “The entrance hall and landing is a real feature of the home, giving a sense of space and grandeur.”

Spacious bedrooms
Ahead, turn right, stepping into a large, L-shaped master bedroom where an archway connects a dressing room with the main chamber. Fitted wardrobes provide an abundance of storage space in this bright bedroom where light pours in from windows to the front and glazed double doors which open to a balcony at the rear.

A peaceful place, looking out to the trees and school field behind (hidden in the summer months when the leaves are full), why not place a bistro set out on the balcony and soak up the views? Also connected to the master bedroom is an ensuite, furnished with corner shower, wash basin and WC, with part tiling to the walls and a chrome centrally-heated towel rail.

Across the way, arrive at a second double bedroom, looking out to the front of the home, carpeted underfoot and with a large built-in wardrobe.

Refresh and revive
Turning right out of this bedroom, make your way along the galleried landing, where the family bathroom is located on the left, fitted with P-shaped bath containing overhead shower, wash basin and WC. Containing fitted storage cabinets and fully tiled to the walls in contemporary grey, this bathroom was recently fitted only five-years ago.

Two further bedrooms await, including a double bedroom to the front, once again featuring fitted furniture. Bedroom four, to the rear, is also furnished with fitted storage and enjoys views over the rear garden.

Landscaped garden
Outside, mature, landscaped gardens combine patio, decking and lush lawn to create a peaceful natural extension to the home.

Curving out from the orangery, the south-facing stone patio soaks up the sunshine, extending to the side to provide a pleasant dining area with table and chairs. Deep stone beds to either side of the patio are ideal for architectural planting or a show of bedding plant colour in spring and summer.

Beyond, raised decking adds another element. Bordered by established hedging, the garden is private and sheltered, with lawn extending to three sides of the house.

Naturally distinguished into formal and rewilded areas, a shaded triangle to the bottom of the garden is separated by modern wooden sleepers, a haven for wildlife.

Near and far
The Hollies is perfectly poised in the pretty village of Weaverham, handy for transport links for those commuting. Connect easily with Chester, Manchester and Liverpool; the M56 is a mere 10 minutes away, meaning that a huge portion of the North and Midlands is accessible in good time, whilst Manchester and Liverpool Airports are around 30 minutes’ drive.

On your doorstep, discover the many walks along the river and canal, through parkland and woodland. A leafy locale, switch off from the hustle and bustle and revel in the rural surrounds.

Families are well placed with a number of fantastic schools close by, including Weaverham High School on the doorstep and the highly acclaimed independent school The Grange in nearby Hartford.

Perfect your swing at one of the many local golf clubs including Sandiway Golf Club and Hartford Golf Club. Winnington Park Rugby Football Club is also close by, while those with equestrian interests are only a short distance from the Cheshire Riding School.

With a number of pubs, restaurants and takeaways close by, you can also head into nearby Hartford and dine at Chime, Hartford Hall or the Hart of Hartford, all popular and within a short taxi service home.

Several shops and supermarkets are within walking distance of the doorstep, including Tesco Express and Coop, whilst Northwich and Stockton Heath are home to many restaurants and supermarkets including Waitrose, M&S, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Asda, Aldi and Lidl. Equidistant between both of the popular Hollies Farm Shops, enjoy the best of both worlds when it comes to deli produce and fresh fruit and vegetables.

An ideal family home, in a safe and secure environment, surrounded by greenery and great amenities, The Hollies is a great home for work, rest and play, with flexibility, versatility and potential.
