A fine country house with ancillary accommodation & leisure suite,

Situated on the edge of the peaceful hamlet of Wall, Halton Grange is an outstanding country home built in the early 20th Century whilst now offering a wealth of modern comforts. The accommodation is very well appointed throughout with the luxury of a cutting edge leisure suite. Extending to around 12.3 acres in total, the expansive gardens and grounds offer peaceful seclusion and privacy.

An entrance vestibule to the front of the property opens up to a reception hall where there is access to the first floor and ground floor accommodation, including the drawing room, garden room, sitting room and dining room. However, it is the stunning Mark Wilkinson breakfasting and dining kitchen that is the heart of the home. Every part of the space was specified and crafted precisely so as to create not only an inviting space in which to relax, dine and entertain, but also in which to cook for the family or cater for parties. In addition to Miele and Gaggenau appliances, the kitchen also benefits from a spacious utility room with several integral freezers, a refrigerated walk-in pantry and a wine store.

Informal dining is catered for in the kitchen whilst the adjoining dining room provides superb space for more formal occasions. Whilst there is access from the kitchen directly into the formal dining room, there is also ample space in the kitchen itself to offer everyday dining, as well as a sitting area. Glazed panels and doors to the rear ensure this area is flooded with natural light.

Accessed either from within the house, or separately via a secondary front door, is a large games room and this in turn leads to the leisure suite. It’s a very well-designed space, benefitting from immense natural light due to glazed panels, skylights and glass doors opening out to a rear courtyard patio. The focal point is the 12m x 5m pool with its infinity Jacuzzi. The pool is overlooked by a fully equipped mezzanine cocktail bar with seating area. The changing suite comprises a solarium, steam room, shower and cloakroom. The pool would benefit from a degree of maintenance, having been unused

A spacious landing at the first floor level is partly fitted with study furniture to create office space. There are three double bedrooms and a single, all with fitted handmade furniture, and two modern family bathrooms, the larger of which has a shower cubicle. The lavish principal suite has a range of handmade furniture and a deluxe en suite bathroom with free standing roll-top bath and a shower with various jets. All bedrooms are certainly well appointed and enjoy wonderful garden views.

In addition to the main house, there is ancillary accommodation above the garaging, in the form of an apartment, comprising a sitting room, kitchen, bedroom and shower room.

This property has 12.3 acres of land.

Outside

Extending to in excess of 12 acres, the grounds at Halton Grange are a sheer delight, successfully blending formal gardens and equestrian facilities.

The grounds also showcase a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs. Outbuildings include a spacious professional workshop, a stone-built coal house and oil store, and a useful gardener’s WC. The property is approached via imposing electrically operated gates that open onto a sweeping gravelled driveway that leads to an extensive parking area and two garages.
