Is it old or is it new? Good question. Well, in truth, it is a bit of bothâ¦â¦.. What we have here is an old agricultural building that was stripped to the bare bricks and then completely re-built internally to reveal what we have today. That is, a luxurious property in one of 8 (all very different) barn conversions in a prestigious courtyard setting. Not only does it back onto fields with open, far reaching views, it also happens to face the Bangor-On-Dee race course, so we know for sure that this is a safe bet! In fact, it is certainly ‘odds-on‘ favourite to steal many a heart, although in fairness, the external appearance belies the true qualities to be found within - this really is a ‘Tardis‘, as shown by the spacious entrance hall, which immediately creates a favourable impression. The sitting room has a wealth of beams and the open-plan dining area has a vaulted ceiling. Granite worktops in the kitchen extend to the breakfast bar and there are a range of integral appliances plus a free-standing range cooker and the utility area has a Belfast sink. Upstairs, both double bedrooms have en-suite facilities and outside, rather unusually (for this type of property) there is a large single garage through the archway to the rear, as well as 2 car parking spaces at the front. Central heating is oil, so you can shop around for the cheapest price (a bit like filling up the car), there is electric under-floor heating in the kitchen and the sitting room has a flueless LPG fire/stove, so whatever the eventuality, you will never get cold! The village centre is less than a mile away and local facilities include a village shop, 2 pubs, doctors, dentists, childrens play park, a bowling green, two hairdressers, Dunawd Primary School, to name but a few. Swift road links provide access to larger centres including Wrexham, Chester and Whitchurch.Whichever way you look at it, if you buy 5 Althrey Court, you‘re bound to be backing a winner!
