They now intercommunicate at ground floor level and comprise a hallway; two reception rooms; "unfitted" dining kitchen; rear hall; utility room and bathroom with a shower above the cast roll-top bath. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms approached by two staircases. Character features include patterned quarry tiled floors to the ground floor, open fireplaces, original ledge and brace plank pine doors and polished pine floorboards upstairs. There is off road parking for several cars and extensive, at present uncultivated, grounds to one side and the rear including a listed brick and stone store and a garden shed.
The property is situated off a single track lane in an elevated position within the hamlet of New Brighton which lies on the lower slopes of Minera/Esclusham Mountain. The cottage enjoys far reaching views from all main rooms over the Cheshire and Shropshire Plains. It is a mile from the A525 Wrexham (5 miles) to Ruthin Road on the outskirts of Coedpoeth where wide ranging village amenities are available including a choice of Welsh and English speaking Primary Schools; a Public Library; both Dental and Medical Centres, and a variety of Shops.
