The Property

Lumley House underwent a full modernisation and high specification refurbishment in 2018. It now offers generous family accommodation over two floors but still retains many of its original period features.   The property sits in an elevated position with commanding views over the Cheshire countryside.  The large private gardens are mainly laid to lawn with established shrubs and borders.

The property can be accessed via a pedestrian gate from Paddock Road or via a private driveway leading to the rear of the property where there is a double garage, large turning circle and ample off-road parking.  

Downstairs, there is a spacious sitting room at the front of the property as well as a study/snug and separate family room with log burner leading to the adjacent sun-room.  The wood-panelled hallway leads to the dining room, and open plan kitchen/breakfast room which are towards the rear of the property.  The kitchen has a range of fitted units with space for a range cooker and other appliances as well as a generous island/breakfast bar.  A door leads from the kitchen to the enclosed rear courtyard.  There is also a large utility room, rear hallway/boot-room, and downstairs bathroom.   The enclosed paved courtyard is a particular feature and provides for practical everyday use and an attractive entertaining space.  Leading off the courtyard are a number of external storage rooms and a large double garage with electric up/over door.  

To the first floor are five generous bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room.  The large family bathroom has both a bath and separate shower cubicle.  A particular feature of one of the bedrooms is an attractive vaulted ceiling with ‘secret’ stairs down to the rear hallway. 

Outside, the property is approached along a private driveway leading to a parking area for a number of vehicles.  The large double garage combines with a separate log store. The gardens are a particular feature; to the front of the property is a rose bed along the full frontage; to the side and rear are generous lawned areas, with gravelled pathways, rose-arches and established trees, shrubs and borders.  There is an adjacent small paddock which is available by separate arrangement.

The property benefits from a biomass wood chip heating system, managed by the estate and charged separately, to provide sustainable and ‘green’ heating and hot water.  There is secondary glazing throughout the property.
