Watkin House is located in a slightly elevated setting within the Dee Valley on the much favoured residential Development of the Wynnstay Hall Estate which is originally the Principal Seat of the Watkin Williams Wynn's and has been developed to form a unique residential development set within 27 Acres of Grade I listed gardens which were designed by Lancelot Capability' Brown in 1777. Enjoying stunning views across the gardens with the Welsh Hills as a backdrop, it is surprising how convenient the location is to the A483 by pass that links Wrexham, Chester, North Wales and the North West therefore allowing for daily commuting to the major Commercial, Industrial and Tourism Centres of the region. The nearest village is Ruabon and it has an excellent range of convenience shopping, train station and both primary and secondary schools.


From Wrexham take the main A483 Wrexham by-pass in a Southerly direction for 5 miles and take the A539 Whitchurch Road for approx. 1 mile to the top of the hill. Take the right turn through the stone pillared entrance into the Wynnstay Hall Estate and proceed along the private driveway passing the lake on the right hand side. Proceed past Tattersall Stables on the left hand side, where straight ahead will be Watkin House.

The Wynnstay Hall Estate is approached along a beautiful tree lined driveway leading to private houses and quality apartments. The driveway gives access to the two designated private parking spaces for Watkin House and an additional four visitor parking spaces. A pathway leads to the main entrance alongside a lawned garden area. A covered stone paved passageway houses the log store and a six panel lockable door opens to a useful storage cupboard which houses the gas fired central heating boiler and includes a cold water tap. The residents of the Wynnstay Hall private houses and apartments have extensive use of the Grade I Listed gardens and communal tennis courts. The setting of the Wynnstay Hall development is truly unique and a viewing of the property is essential to appreciate its qualities.
