A 'WOODLAND oasis' on the fringe of Delamere Forest has gone up for sale at £1.25 million.

Offering 'pure privacy and wonderful woodland views', the property in Station Road, Delamere, is being marketed by estate agents Storeys of Cheshire.

Built in 1957 for the founders of Harringtons Caravans, the four-bedroom detached home sits within around an acre of land.

Inside, guests are greeted by Italian porcelain tiles, which can be warmed by underfloor heating.

Moving ahead, you will come to the staircase with a carpeted study on the right, with a downstairs toilet next door.

A set of double doors on the left of the entrance hall open into an 'enormous' living room with an adjoining conservatory which leads to an outdoor patio.

Also accessed from the living room is a unique iron-gated dining room, which features French doors opening onto a garden terrace.

Returning to the entrance hallway, turn left and emerge into the kitchen, which is a vast room containing cupboards and granite worktops 'painstakingly sourced from a quarry in Italy'.

Upstairs you will find the double bedrooms where you can wake up to 'far reaching views out towards Delamere Forest'.

In one room, there is plenty of storage space with a furnished and mirrored dressing room as well as a tiled en suite shower room.

On the property listing, the owners say: "It is, and always has been, such a happy home.

"You wake up every day, whether it’s snowy or sunny, and the views are amazing – it’s so private.

"This home comes alive when family visit, we always have a 10ft Christmas tree.

"At twilight hundreds of Canada Geese fly over to land in Delamere Forest – squadrons of them.

"We are right in their flight path – it’s a sight to behold.”
