Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The sale of Delamere Farm is indeed an extremely rare buying opportunity. In terms of location it is arguably one of the finest positions in and around the Tarporley area, combining outstanding views of countryside and rural appeal with a remarkably convenient location close to a comprehensive road network and within 45 minutes travelling distance of two international airports.

The property itself comprises a substantial three storey, six bedroom family house, a large detached outbuilding incorporating garage and gardens and grounds that extend to a little over three acres. The property was painstakingly restored and refurbished a little under ten years ago and the present owners have also modified and improved the accommodation.

The house opens with a spectacular reception hall that has galleried aspects to the landings over, superb wooden flooring and doors that lead to the principal reception rooms and living space. It really is a most welcoming and impressive entrance to the accommodation. The living room is of an excellent size and has an array of recently upgraded oak frame windows that take full advantage of the views of the formal gardens and countryside aspects beyond. The room itself is of a large proportion, has a woodburning stove with Cheshire brick surround as its focal point and a large wooden beam. Off the reception hall is a separate family room that is of pleasing square proportion and extremely adaptable to suit the needs of differing families. There is also at ground floor level a well proportioned study, shower room and utility room.

The key component for the modern day family is a large open plan breakfast kitchen and in this regard Delamere Farm excels itself. The breakfast kitchen has been tastefully upgraded by the present owners so as to comprise a superb range of wall and floor cupboards, together with solid black granite preparation surfaces, central island unit and delightful limestone flooring. There is more than ample space for a large table and chairs within the breakfast kitchen and there is also a high quality Aga that provides a focal point to the room. Directly accessed from the Breakfast Kitchen is a separate dining room that could alternatively be set out as a family room if required. The area as a whole can truly be said to represent the very best in modern day design and finish.

At first floor level the master bedroom has been transformed by the present owners having a fabulous en-suite facility in addition to walk in dressing room. On the first floor there are three further bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite and the other two which are served by a spacious and well appointed family bathroom. From the first floor landing lovely views can be enjoyed over the reception hall to the ground floor and up towards the second floor accommodation. Crowning the building is the second floor which has a style of a Manhattan style loft. There are two very large rooms, one which has an en-suite and there is in addition a useful walk in storeroom accessed from the landing.

Whilst the needs of most families will be catered for in the house itself, Delamere Farm also has the advantage of a fabulous detached outbuilding. The outbuilding incorporates at ground floor level a large double garage with under cover parking to the side, whilst there is also at ground floor level a reception room, a small kitchenette and cloakroom. At first floor in the building there are two large open plan rooms previously used as offices and in more recent times adapted as more of a leisure area. The outbuilding has numerous potential uses and would seem to be particularly ideal for those with children who are looking for a break out space, those who run a business from home or bigger families who regularly have guests staying and would wish to have separate accommodation within the same site as the principal residence.

As already mentioned the gardens and grounds are an absolute delight, being remarkably mature and established and also enjoying fantastic levels of seclusion and privacy.

Delamere Farm is an exceptional property, the like of which, in the author's opinion not presently for sale in this part of Cheshire. A viewing is therefore highly recommended to appreciate its outstanding contemporary quality, fabulous individual character and remarkable location which is really difficult to better.
