Tarts Hill, Hanmer


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
A bit like a mini-Stately Home, this beautifully presented barn conversion, complete with striped lawn and circular water feature with bronze statue and fountain, has bags and bags of character….. ……only on a much smaller scale!

On a positive note though, the running costs will be a lot less as shown with the very commendable 'C' rated Energy Performance Certificate.

The property was renovated in 2006 and a condensing oil central heating boiler was installed in 2017. It is beautifully presented and an internal inspection is strongly recommended.

Apart from the lovely presentation, it is where it is located that is particularly poignant. It backs directly onto open fields and we are told that there are wonderful walks that take you into the village of Hanmer – just imagine dropping into the Hanmer Arms en-route for a glass of something, before staggering back up the hill and not having to worry about taking the car!

There is no doubt that this is a stunning rural location, although it should be noted that it is by no means isolated as there are neighbouring properties either side.

Inside, every ounce of space has been carefully considered and although there are sloping ceilings upstairs, all three bedrooms (and the family bathroom) are well proportioned. Downstairs, there is a useful downstairs WC in the cloakroom, a spacious utility room, a comfortable lounge that backs onto the courtyard garden and a spacious open plan kitchen/dining room, complete with range style cooker.

Outside, in addition to the formal courtyard garden, there is also a productive vegetable garden to the rear of the stables, so you will be able to enjoy a taste of 'the good life' - bliss!

Location-wise, it is surrounded by the Gredington estate land, within the Welsh border, conveniently located for travel to nearby Whitchurch, Wrexham, Shrewsbury and Chester, with Liverpool, Manchester and Wolverhampton slightly further afield. Leisure facilities include horse racing at Bangor-On-Dee and Chester, golf courses at Hill Valley in Whitchurch, Carden Park and Wrexham.
