St Andrews, Huxley, CH3 9BH



St Andrews is a unique detached residence that enjoys a fabulous position within Huxley village. Huxley is a lovely area on the fringe of Tarporley with a well regarded primary school and a soon to open public house/restaurant. The owners of St Andrews have overseen a dramatic conversion of the original chapel into a superb contemporary family home. The renovation has taken place with great care, with many of the key features of the church being retained. At the same time as retaining many period features, a superb architect designed high quality contemporary extension has also been added to the quality so as to provide the open living spaces that are desired by the modern day family. The end result is a superb combination and a viewing is absolutely essential.

The dining kitchen is perhaps the area where the original features shine to their truest glory. This wonderful open plan space, the original body of the chapel, has full arch windows, the original font and a fabulous vaulted ceiling. As one would expect the kitchen is of an excellent standard and there is more than ample space for a very large table and chairs, living room furniture and a general potential to make this wonderful open space the hub of family living.

At ground floor level there is also a utility area and a small study. At the back of the house in the contemporary extension is a fabulous living room with a woodburning stove and bi-folding doors opening onto and overlooking the rear garden. There is also an additional ground floor room that is described in these particulars as bedroom two. The room is of an excellent double proportion and has double doors leading out to the garden and is adjacent to the shower room so is the perfect overall arrangement for those seeking a ground floor bedroom. If not needed as a bedroom then of course the space could be used as a family room, study or sitting room.

At first floor level the principal bedroom has a walk in wardrobe and an en-suite shower room, whilst there are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Externally the landscaping has all been completed to a high standard with ample off road parking and turning space to the front together with a detached garage. The rear garden is principally laid to lawn but also has a good sized patio and is not overlooked to the rear.

Offered for sale with no ongoing chain, this excellent conversion is well worthy of an early viewing and significant market attention is anticipated.
