Tenure: Freehold

BEST BIDS TO BE RECEIVED BY 12.00 NOON, FRIDAY 10th FEBRUARY. An exciting opportunity to create an impressive, modern country property from a former agricultural
building, occupying a peaceful rural location with
stunning views. A further 10.6 acres of adjoining pasture available by separate negotiation.

Hoofield Barn offers an extremely rare and exciting
opportunity to create a striking and architecturally
impressive modern property which offers
extensive accommodation while being
environmentally friendly and energy efficient. The
design has been completed by renowned Chester
architect Philip McCormick who could complete
the detailed design and manage the construction
should this appeal to the buyer.
Hoofield Barn occupies a sought after rural
location to the North of Grade II listed Hoofield
Hall approached via a long private drive and back
from the lane with a wonderful open aspect across
the surrounding countryside.
On 24th August 2016 Cheshire West and Chester
Council confirmed that conversion of the building
will be allowed under Permitted Development in
accordance with the application 16/03130/PDQ.
The plans provide the following accommodation which extends, internally, to approximately 3950 square feet overall:

• Entrance Hall; Fitted Kitchen with open plan
Dining Area and Family Room; Lounge; Study/
Bedroom 5; Utility Room
• Master Bedroom Suite comprising Double
Bedroom with Dressing Room and En-Suite
Bathroom; 3 Further Double Bedrooms Suite’s
with En-Suite Bathrooms.
• 2 Internal Glazed Courtyards; Cloakroom with
W.C; Integral Double Car Port; Parking; Garden;
Paddock, In all just under ¾ of an acre

Hoofield Barn is an open fronted steel framed
building, part clad with corrugated sheet and
Yorkshire boarding beneath a profiled roof.
Previously used as a cubicle building for cattle,
the structure is now redundant and ready for
conversion. The design incorporates a minimalist,
open plan interior ideally suited to modern living
and extensive use of glass with the front façadehaving full height glass panels to take full
advantage of the rural setting and panoramic
views which extend across unspoilt farmland. The
proposals also include cedar cladding to the
exterior walls and cedar sails to the front
The accommodation is laid out entirely at ground
floor level albeit there is scope to create a
mezzanine floor if required subject to the
availability of any necessary consents, and is
suitable for family living, a single person or
couple, perhaps someone downsizing from a
larger country property but who wishes to retain a
rural environment and create a bespoke dwelling.
The principal living rooms and bedrooms extend
across the front of the building, all benefitting
from the view and which could have access to a
wide terrace which would be partially under cover
from the overhang of the building. Within the
building are two interior courtyards which are
intended to provide sheltered inner gardens
visible and accessible from the living space inside
of the house.
To the outside the property would benefit from
terrace with landscaped gardens and a wide lawn
extending to the adjoining farmland.

The villages of Tarporley and Tattenhall are within
4 miles distant, both offering a comprehensive
range of services including pubs and restaurants
as well as high street banks and local shops.
There are several golf courses locally at Carden
Park, Waverton and Tarporley and for anyone with
equestrian interests there is racing at Chester and
Bangor on Dee.
The cities of Chester, Liverpool and Manchester
are all within easy reach providing a wide range of
leisure and recreational facilities including a
choice of sports clubs, both amateur and
professional. Schooling is well catered for with
private and state schools nearby including
