Formerly part of the Foxhill Estate, Foxhill Farm is a charming intact Georgian farmstead overlooking its own land. It has striking character and with its substantial outbuildings offers considerable potential for adaptation.
The farmhouse has planning permission to be extended, and the combination of level and sloping land is ideal for those with equestrian interests.

Lot 1 (About 5.3 acres)

The traditional red brick farmhouse enjoys a private position with a lovely rural outlook in all directions. Steps lead up to a substantial timber door, giving access to a reception hall and
cloakroom with WC and washbasin.

The kitchen has a range of wall and base units as well as a walk-in pantry. The adjacent dining room is a good size, and opens to a south-facing sun room which has large picture windows with stunning views and access to the gardens. A spacious drawing room spans the width of the house. It has a fireplace with a decorative timber mantle and overlooks the gardens. Stairs with an elegant rosewood banister rise to the first floor.

The master bedroom has wonderful views, a walk-in dressing room (which could be used as an extra bedroom) and an en suite bathroom.
There is another large double bedroom with fitted wardrobes, overlooking a pretty courtyard. A third/fourth bedroom, situated
at the front of the house, is currently arranged as a guest room/study with a cast iron fireplace and views over the gardens and orchard. The family bathroom comprises a bath with shower over, WC and washbasin, and has a substantial loft room above.

There is a good size cellar which houses the boiler and provides plenty of storage space, and an external utility room adjoins the
house with a Belfast sink, plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Planning Permission

Planning Permission has been granted for a substantial extension of the house to incorporate a spacious open-plan living room and kitchen on the ground floor, and two further bedrooms on the first floor. Copies of the plans are available from the selling agents.


Forming part of the range of outbuildings, the cottage provides excellent secondary/guest accommodation with a separate driveway and entrance. It includes an open plan kitchen with a Rayburn and living room overlooking the courtyard, two bedrooms and a bathroom.

A further 16 acres (6.24ha) is available by separate negotiation in three lots.

The property is set in an idyllic rural position with far reaching views over the surrounding countryside

It is situated in a convenient location close to the historic city of Chester and the nearby villages of Frodsham and Helsby, which provide a comprehensive range of leisure and shopping facilities, with excellent private and state schools nearby

The communication links are excellent, with convenient access to the M56 and M6. London is under 2 hours away on the West Coast mainline, and the two local villages have
regular services to the nearby cities and towns. Liverpool and Manchester airports allow for national and international commuting


A cobbled courtyard links the house to the traditional L-shaped outbuilding which provides garaging, a coach house, stabling, tack room and storage. There is a substantial open space with exposed beams on the first floor which runs almost the entire length of the outbuildings and cottage. The buildings are a key feature of the property and offer potential for further conversion subject to gaining the necessary planning consent.

There is another red brick stable and Dutch barn at the rear,accessed via a separate driveway.

Gardens and Grounds

Foxhill Farm has delightful, rabbit-fenced gardens which surround the house. A good size lawn at the front has a hedged border, dividing it from an orchard which hosts a variety
of specially low grown fruit trees for easy picking. A large flat lawn at the side of the orchard may provide an ideal site for a
tennis court. There are also a number of raised beds, a herb garden, greenhouse and well maintained vegetable and soft fruit beds.

A large parcel of level grassland surrounds the property and could provide excellent grazing for horses or other livestock.

Lot 2 Land (5.2 acres) with access off Tarvin Road.

Lot 3 Land (about 2.7 acres) with metered water and access off Tarvin Road.

Lot 4 Land ( about 8.2 acres) of permenant grazing land with metered water and access to
