Full description

Standing within beautifully landscaped gardens and commanding wonderful elevated views over adjoining farmland and Oulton Mill Pool across the lane, Brown Hills occupies a delightful position only a few miles to the north east of the attractive Georgian village of Tarporley.

Originally a relatively small thatched cottage, the property, in recent years, has been the subject of an impressive and comprehensive programme of renovation and extension. Beamed ceilings, open fires, solid oak doors and exposed stonework blend sympathetically with modern, quality fittings to create what is now a substantial family home of genuine individuality and character.

Warmed by a modern oil fired central heating system, with underfloor heating to the ground floor, and complemented by timber framed sealed unit double glazing, the house provides a wonderful expanse of adaptable accommodation with up to five reception rooms. Of these rooms the highlight to many will be the magnificent 30’ part timber framed Reception Hall, which provides a wonderful entertaining space with full height pitched and beamed ceiling as well as a large multi-fuel burning stove and full height exposed brick chimney breast. Off this room are a useful Study/Snug with open fire, a Utility/Kitchenette with Wet Room and two separate staircases, one at each end, that rise to two bedrooms.

Off the front Entrance Hall are the Lounge and Dining Room, both well proportioned rooms with open fires, and the Lounge benefitting from lovely views over the gardens towards Oulton Mill Pool. Forming the central part of the house is a large ‘square’ Dining Kitchen with Rayburn, which is fitted with an attractive and extensive range of cream painted ‘in-frame’ units that are complemented by polished granite worktops. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a super Garden Room, situated off the Kitchen and providing access to a very private stone flagged patio area with brick BBQ.

To the first floor are three ‘double’ Bedrooms, two with well appointed En-suite Shower Rooms, and a family Bathroom with modern white suite. All first floor rooms have wonderful views.

The gardens provide a pleasant setting for the house and comprise lawns, raised flower beds and stone flagged terraces. Electric gates from the lane provide access to a gravelled driveway which provides plenty of space for parking. There are various timber sheds for storage/workshop purposes.
Rushton is a wonderful location for commuters being within convenient travelling distance of Chester and the Wirral, as well as Manchester and surrounding areas. Crewe Railway Station is approximatly 14 miles from the property. Excellent recreational, educational and shopping facilities are all within easy reach, with Tarporley village providing the majority of day-to-days requirements.

DIRECTIONS: From Tarporley village travel in a north-easterly direction up Forest Road, which turns into Tarporley Road, to the T-junction. Turn right onto the A49, signposted Warrington and Cotebrook and continue down Luddington Hill passing the Alvanley Arms on the right. Continue for a short distance before turning right onto Oulton Mill Lane, just before Cotebrook Coffee Shop. The property will be found after a short distance on the right handside.
