Outside, the large footprint of accommodation is complemented by a sizeable corner plot, which enjoys ease of access from Hillgrove Crescent via electric double gates.

The property is approached from Hillgrove Crescent through electrically operated double gates, which were installed by the current owners making for a secure and user-friendly entrance leading onto a large, gravelled driveway situated to the rear of the property, which is bordered by sleepers and can cater for multiple vehicles including vans, motorhomes, trailers and the like. There is also a detached one and a half-length garage accessed via an up and over door to the front. The garage features loft storage, power and lighting.

From the driveway, you can enter the property at the rear, which takes you into the garden room. The property can also be approached on foot at the front via Chester Road South. Once through the period front door, you are greeted by an enclosed porch featuring stained-glass, Minton tiled flooring and a further door leading inside.

The inviting hallway is a splendid example of a classic nineteenth-century reception hallway and includes Minton tiled flooring, an elegant staircase rising to the first floor and doors leading to the dining room, kitchen and cellarage.
