Property description

+++no onward chain and conveyancing fees paid for by Open House Estate Agents*

open house has accepted the opportunity to bring to market truly one of the best properties on the Wirral in the best of locations. This really is a property in which to indulge. The fixtures and fittings, the decor and the layout, are all exceptional. Sitting in approximately one acre, screened from all attention behind mature garden shrubs and trees, privacy is a given. This house has all the amenities required for sumptuous living and entertaining. The property sits in a prime position on King's Drive, backing onto National Trust woodland. Caldy is one of the North of England's most exclusive residential villages being only just 12 miles from Liverpool, 18 to Chester and 45 to Manchester. It has been the location of residence for affluent businessmen and professionals, and recently with celebrities from both the sporting and media world. There is a fine range of state and independent schools in the area, and the Wirral is well known for the quality of its golf, glorious beaches, wildlife and stunning scenery. The renowned Royal Liverpool Golf Club is only 3 miles away at Hoylake.

The house is early 20th century built and has been extended by the current owners by adding a large conservatory and garden room. A superb swimming pool annexe has also been built to the rear of the house.

The front door sits within a part-glazed porch with pairs of columns and a balcony above. This progresses into a hall leading onto the main reception rooms and the inner hall with staircase to bedrooms. The sitting room is, like everything in this beautiful home, an airy and sophisticated room with fireplace and doors extending out to the garden. The dining room continues the theme of elegance with a large bay window, fireplace and extensive shelving.

The outstanding kitchen has a range of high quality fitted maple storage units, granite work surfaces and a Lacanche cooking range. The Southern-facing conservatory acts as a breakfast room. From the kitchen sits a further sitting room linked to the garden room adding additional space and further access to the garden.

The staircase in the hall leads to a first floor landing with doors opening onto the balcony above the front door. The generously-proportioned master bedroom contains an archway to an en-suite dressing/shower room and enjoys a balcony too. Across the landing sits a guest suite with its own en-suite bathroom and WC.

Adjoining the rear of the house is a double garage and garden stores. And adjacent to the main house sits the swimming pool annexe with its own kitchen and shower rooms. The annexe is a substantial structure and houses an full-size swimming pool with automatic cover and diving board. Sliding doors open onto a terrace beside the tennis court.

The tennis court has an all-weather surface and contains a small tennis pavilion.

The mature, and well tended, gardens provide a beautiful setting for a beautiful house and would grace any external entertainment. They contain a vast array of mature woodland shrubs, trees, pond, terraced lawns, greenhouse, walks and flowering borders. The rear of the house faces South and there is a delightful outlook across the private garden.

The property contains magnificent fixtures and fittings, including high quality furniture and outstanding artwork, and the current owners are happy to negotiate the inclusion of some to complement the sale. Please contact agent for further details.
