Sizergh House, Calveley Shropshire Union Canal



  • Juliet balcony
  • Towpath Side


Sizergh House is a beautifully presented, spacious house, with a lovely garden backing onto the Shropshire Union canal and stunning views across open countryside. It is set on the edge of the hamlet of Calveley, close to the cheese manufacturer J.S.Bailey, which has a popular shop and canalside café. It is fourteen miles from Chester City Centre, but there are excellent local facilities in the nearby villages of Alpraham, Tarporley, and Nantwich. The house is surrounded by glorious countryside and places to explore including Delamere Forest, the Whitegate Way and the Sandstone Trail.

The house is set well back from the road, off an access road serving three properties. It enjoys a wide frontage with a smart block paved driveway providing plenty of off road parking, an area of lawn, attractive mature planting surrounded by low walls, and one and a half garages which are integral to the house.

The front door opens to a spacious entrance hall, with the study to its left with a window to the front, and the living room to the right. The living room is a beautiful cosy room with a beamed ceiling, a free standing flicker flame fire, two windows to the front, and patio windows to the side. Straight ahead of the entrance hall is a large dining room. The is a fantastic room for entertaining, with huge windows overlooking the garden. From the dining room, double doors to the left open to a wonderfully stylish and welcoming garden room leading into a conservatory, which the present owners have set up with a bar to serve drinks. Two sets of patio doors provide views over the garden and the canal, and open onto a lovely paved terrace. There is a door from the conservatory into the storeroom which takes up the rear section of the half garage. To the right of the dining room is a large kitchen breakfast room, which benefits from fabulous views over the garden. Off the kitchen is a utility room and cloakroom.

Between the kitchen and the living room on the right side of the house is a side entrance, with an inner hall and stairs rising to the first floor. The first floor landing provides access to the master suite, three further bedrooms and the family bathroom. A further staircase rises to a long attic room on the second floor.

The master suite is very spacious, with walk in wardrobes, a luxurious en-suite shower room, and a large dressing area. It has two windows to the front, and three velux skylights to the rear. There are two further double bedrooms to the front of the house, one of which has an en-suite bathroom. Even the fourth bedroom at the rear of the house is a good sized double, and could easily be used as the main bedroom. Although it does not have a private en-suite, there is a door from this bedroom direct into the Jack and Jill family bathroom which has both a bath and a shower cubicle. This lovely room has French windows opening onto a Juliet balcony, and enjoys fabulous views over the garden, canal, and surrounding countryside.

The back garden is stunning. It features a large block paved terrace with plenty space for patio furniture and outdoor entertaining. The rest of the garden is mainly laid to lawn with further seating areas and a good balance between privacy and delightful views. At the bottom of the garden is a picket fence, with a gate opening directly onto the towpath.
