  • Brief Description

    The introduction of this property to the market represents the increasingly rare opportunity to acquire a superb example of the ever-popular Victorian era, situated in the highly regarded village of Christleton, with its attendant facilities and respected secondary school. Elm House itself was the subject of a substantial refurbishment and extension programme in 2008, which has provided very tasteful accommodation and numerous enhancements and accommodation which includes a superb kitchen and impressive sitting room with multi fuel stove. In addition to the main house, there is just over a 1.5 acres of paddock land/woodland (with the possibility of equestrian use), a machinery store, a double garage with a first floor studio flat, and a separate two bedroomed cottage. All of these additional elements will undoubtedly appeal to a wide variety of purchasers due to their provision of additional income streams or the occupation of family members, or indeed the possible use as home offices. The main house itself is served by a gas central heating system with underfloor heating (to the kitchen/breakfast room/garden room), a pressurised hot water system with back-up solar hot water heating panels, a 7000L rainwater collection system, timber framed double glazed windows, oak internal doors and some oak flooring, an RCD/circuit breaker controlled electrical system, connections to all mains services and the following accommodation which is described in detail below.

  • Outside

    The grounds to Elm House are a particular feature, being especially attractive, well planned and laid out in a series of different areas as follows. A gated and pebbled driveway with multiple parking spaces leads from Plough Lane to the main entrance doors of Elm House and Elm Cottage, and then to the garage and studio flat. Proceeding in a clockwise direction from the front of Elm House, to the west there is an attractive lawned garden with very well stocked borders, boundary screen hedging and a series of mature deciduous and evergreen trees, and gated access to a delightful Indian stone laid courtyard seating area bounded by Elm House and Elm Cottage (with two power points and lighting). From the lawned garden to the west, a trellis worked arch leads to a further lawned garden/orchard to the north, with a timber construction shed, fruit trees, log store, machinery store and brick built outbuilding, and a further flagged seating area bounded by the rear of Elm Cottage and the garage/studio flat, a gateway then leads from this area to a further grassed and lawned section with additional log store, kitchen garden, hen run, greenhouse, shuttered vegetable beds, beautiful mature oak tree and superb rural aspects. A gateway from this area then leads to the north and east to an extensive area of paddock land of approximately 1½ acres in total. This has been laid fallow by the present owners and allowed to return to a wild meadow, enhanced by mown pathways providing delightful walks, and woodland screening to the north and east. Vehicular and pedestrian access to this paddock land can be gained either from the main Elm House pebbled driveway or via an adjacent gravelled and pebbled driveway not within the ownership of Elm House but having a vehicular and pedestrian right of way in favour of Elm House.
  • Important Notice

    Prospective purchasers should be aware that the paddock land to the north of the property containing the hen run, vegetable plot, shuttered beds and greenhouse is currently subject to a possessory title application, which the vendors are confident will be signed off prior to completion.
  • Further Important Notice

    Prospective purchasers should be aware that the contract for the sale of Elm House will incorporate a 'claw back' provision which will entitle the sellers and their successors to be paid 50% of any uplift in value of the paddock land to the property, following the grant of planning permission for development. The claw back will apply for a 20 year period from the date of completion.
  • Directions

    From Chester, proceed out of the city in an easterly direction along Boughton, taking the right hand lane at the gyratory system, then bearing left onto Christleton Road. Continue to the Boughton Heath interchange, proceeding straight across following signs for the A41 and Whitchurch. After a further distance, take the left turning signposted for Christleton and continue into the centre of Christleton village. Turn right onto Village Road and then left onto Plough Lane. Continue to the crossroads with Brown Heath Road and continue straight across and for a further distance past The Plough, after which the gated driveway to Elm House will be observed on the left.
