Property description

Just 10 minutes from the city centre of Liverpool but a world away from the hustle and bustle of city life, Dog Clog is a private estate boasting approximately eight acres of stunning impeccably maintained grounds which include an incredible man-made lake.

This simply outstanding home has been completely rebuilt and redesigned with a state of the art sound system and CCTV security system. The property is situated behind wooden electric gates along a sweeping driveway where the true beauty of this magnificent property is revealed.

The sheer size of this property has to be seen to be believed and the interior is impressively presented with a brilliant selection of original features including the delightfully ornate entrance hall and grand reception hallway with feature staircase, helping to create a suitably grand introduction.

The house has under floor heating throughout and the ground floor has four spacious reception rooms which include a formal dining room, a study and an exceptional living room which is a vast 41 foot in length and has been designed to maximise the light from four large feature windows and two doors to the rear.

The stylish and contemporary kitchen is both practical and aesthetically pleasing with a comprehensive range of high specification integrated appliances, a granite breakfast bar, a selection of work tops and units, ceramic tiled flooring and feature French doors. To finish the ground floor, there is a utility room and wc.

Upstairs there are five double bedrooms, three with en-suite facilities, and the master bedroom having a fabulous walk-in wardrobe. In addition, the third bedroom is currently utilised as a fantastic cinema room with the sound system available through all rooms in the house and a wonderful balcony overlooking the grounds.

Outside there is a separate annex comprising a living room, kitchen, double bedroom and bathroom, as well as a particular feature of the property, an indoor heated swimming pool complex. Addition outbuildings include gymnasium, stables, Avery and kennels as well as an all weather tennis court.
