An imposing detached residence, occupying an incredibly private plot with mature gardens adjoining open countryside, in all about 0.5 acres. The property has been fully renovated to provide incredibly spacious accommodation and it is located in a secluded yet accessible location close to village amenities, with excellent road communications.
Ruscote is an impressive detached residence which is believed to date from 1910. The current owners have undertaken an extensive scheme of renovation since their ownership with the property being comprehensively restored and extended to create a substantial family home, whilst retaining much of the original character and charm of the property.
Internally Ruscote offers well proportioned family accommodation arranged over three floors. On the ground floor there is a welcoming reception hallway with cloakroom and access to the principle reception rooms. At the front of the house there is a sitting room and separate lounge with log burning stove and dual aspect windows. At the rear of the property is the kitchen-dining room. The kitchen incorporates a range of solid oak wall and floor units with cupboards and drawers beneath polished granite work surfaces, a 3 oven Aga, integrated fridge and freezer, microwave and dishwasher. Beyond is a useful utility with integrated electric oven, boiler and back door to outside. The kitchen also leads through to a large conservatory which overlooks the garden.
From the hall the turned staircase rises to the landing off which are four well proportioned bedrooms and the family bathroom. Three of the bedrooms have built in wardrobes and the master bedroom also has a fully fitted en-suite bathroom with separate shower. At second floor level there is a further double bedroom and en-suite shower room and there is a sixth bedroom. This floor has an independent boiler and heating system.
Ruscote occupies an extremely private and secluded position accessed towards the end of a private no through drive used by just 6 other dwellings. It is situated within a mile of the sought after village of Willaston which provides a comprehensive range of local services for everyday needs including convenience store, café, deli, bakery, two village pubs, doctor and dentist surgeries and a primary school.
Heswall and Neston are a few miles distance which provide a wider choice of shopping together with high street banks and supermarkets.
Ruscote is conveniently placed for Chester and Liverpool which offer a wide range of shopping, schooling and leisure facilities. In this connection there is a well- regarded primary school in Willaston together with several grammar schools in Wirral including West Kirby, Caldy and Wirral complemented by various independent schools nearby including Kingsmead, Birkenhead and The Firs and Kings and Queen’s schools in Chester.
On the recreational front there is a variety of sporting activities in the area including sailing and windsurfing on the Marine Lake and Dee Estuary, golf clubs at Caldy, Heswall and Royal Liverpool at Hoylake.

There is a rail link from Eastham Rake to Liverpool & Chester from which there is a sub 2hr intercity service to London Euston and both Liverpool and Manchester are served with international airports.
