On the cusp of Chester, rural and removed but by no means remote, fall into the enchanting embrace of Far Hills, a luxurious home with far-reaching views.
Wrought iron electric gates provide privacy and security, opening to a new, block paved driveway guiding you up and away from the country road, past mature borders, trees and lush lawn to the top where plenty of parking is available for ten or more cars, and a large, detached double garage awaits as the scale and scope of Far Hills reveals itself.
A warm welcome
Fragrant wisteria wends its way up the handsome façade of Far Hills, making your way to the front door, where stained glass panels draw light through into the stunning, double height entrance hallway.
Light and airy, black and white tiling underfoot adds a sense of prestige, as your sightline is drawn ahead by the angled archways, highlighting the spaciousness of this home.
Tucked away on the right is the utility room, overlooking the garden and featuring both storage and plumbing for a washer and dryer.
Opposite, note the useful fitted wardrobes in the study, a versatile room which could even serve as a playroom or accessible ground floor bedroom.
Ahead and on the right, marbled tiles add a sense of luxury and refinement to the downstairs WC, where storage is available in the drawers beneath the wall mounted wash basin.
Light filled living
Next on the right, glass panelled oak doors open to the impressive, modernised living room, where spotlighting shines down from above and fitted units provide storage in the media wall where an inset television sleekly sits.
A sublimely light room, peaceful and private, a bay window frames views out, whilst a glazed sliding door opposite opens to the stunning orangery to the rear. Serving as a living-dining area, this capacious space offers direct access to the garden, enabling indoor-out living for all the family.
A home with such ease of flow, the orangery opens up to the contemporary kitchen beyond, where there is an abundance of storage space in the white cupboards and drawers. A home epitomised by its light and views, the kitchen windows frame vistas over the private, enclosed garden. With so much space for all the family, there is also a large central island-breakfast bar, a sociable space around which to gather and dine. A host of appliances includes an oven, hob, extractor fan and sink with ample room for a fridge-freezer.
From the kitchen, reconnect with the entrance hallway, where understairs storage can be found beside double glazed-oak doors opening into the cinema room, a fantastic family space for fun evenings and weekends. Fitted with a specialist lighting system, inbuilt sound system and home cinema, keep the entertaining in-house at Far Hills. Ideal also as a playroom for children, French doors retain this home’s constant connection with the outdoors, opening to the garden.
From the entrance hall, ascend the handsome returning staircase, where light flows down from above, before reaching the gallery landing, set beneath a vaulted, beam bedecked ceiling. Light serenades the space, flowing in through an arched window overlooking the extensive garden to the front, where mature trees provide privacy.
Soak and sleep
At the front of the house, with a coloured glass brick internal window, step through into the lavishly sized family bathroom. Tiled underfoot and to the walls in buff tones, a large walk-in shower with rainfall head offers refreshment, with a low-level WC and wall-mounted vanity unit wash basin also available.
Serene and stylish, the sumptuously sized master suite offers ample scope for rest and relaxation, with space for a sofa and super-king-size bed. Windows to the front and rear invite a constant flow of light through, whilst framing far reaching views out over the garden to both sides and to the hills and countryside beyond.
Fitted wardrobes and drawers house an abundance of storage, keeping this room clutter free from clothes.
Soothe your senses in the luxuriously sized ensuite, where alcove shelving to the walls is contemporary and chic. Enjoy a soak in the freestanding bath, with floor mounted tap, or begin your day with a spritz beneath the rainfall head of the large, walk-in shower. Indulgently spacious, this beautifully tiled bathroom also includes a wall mounted WC and vanity unit wash basin with LED mirror above.
Storage is available in the large linen closet on the landing, as you make your way along to the study; a room that could easily serve as a double bedroom and overlooking the rear garden and rolling countryside.
Room for all
With a built-in, mirrored wardrobe, another spacious double bedroom features laminate flooring and looks out over the wraparound garden and fields beyond.
Along the landing, and on the left, a fourth bedroom currently serves as a walk-in wardrobe, housing several wardrobes. Offering verdant views over the garden and Cheshire countryside, this bedroom could comfortably serve as a child’s bedroom or nursery.
A home with room for all, another large double bedroom awaits on the first floor, privately nestled at the end of the landing with views out over the rear and side gardens, where the fields unfurl majestically into the distance.
Far reaching views
Returning to the main landing, oak and iron stairs spiral up to the second floor. Home to the most incredible views, this penthouse level offers so much potential. Currently configurated as two good sized bedrooms – both with storage and one benefitting from an ensuite bathroom containing bath with shower, wash basin and WC – consider the potential to create a luxuriously sized master suite on this floor, or perhaps a self-contained apartment for an older teenager, with bedroom, lounge-games room and bathroom?
Outside, enjoy all the pleasures of an English country garden, as the landscaped lawns, patios, decking and borders of Far Hills wrap around the home in an embracing fashion.
Providing a comforting cocoon of greenery, children can enjoy hours of fun and games on the extensive areas of lawn, as the adults relax and unwind on the patios and decking.
The perfect garden for entertaining family and friends, the raised decking is ideal for catching the sun, whilst the hot tub is perfectly private and ideal for use in winter and summertime.
Soothing the senses, the beautiful pond and tinkling waterfall add a sensory element of pleasure to the garden, whilst the spectacular sunsets and sunrises are beyond compare.
