Tenure: Freehold

This superb detached country house enjoys a first class position set amongst some of Cheshire's most beautiful countryside yet only 5-10 minutes drive from the Georgian village of Tarporley. Having fabulous views towards Beeston Castle, the quality and peace of the location cannot be overstated.

There are numerous elements to the property including the principal family residence, superb outbuildings and of course the external space. The house itself features an incredibly versatile layout with excellent use of space, At ground floor level the accommodation opens with a large entrance hall and there are in total four separate reception rooms in addition to an outstanding garden room, boot room, utility room, cloakroom and a beautiful open plan breakfast kitchen.

At first floor level there are six bedrooms and in total three bathrooms. The layout of the house lends itself ideally to family occupation. 

In terms of outbuildings there are two fully converted buildings that are utterly exceptional. The movie barn is, as the name suggests, a barn that has been converted for leisure purposes with an integrated home cinema system. The overall specification and level of finish is extremely impressive with there being underfloor heating, wooden flooring, featured beam ceiling and a separate kitchen and bathroom that have both been finished extremely well.

The second outbuilding is the office barn which is a two storey building comprising at ground floor level a double and single garage and at first floor level office area extending to 37ft in length with a kitchen off that measures 16' x 7'. The present owners run a business from this barn, which is its obvious purpose but other potential uses include teenagers rumpus room or dependent relative annexe.

Externally there is of course ample off road parking and in addition to the aforementioned outbuildings there is a large work area that comprises five stables, a bike shed, mower shed and greenhouse. 

The gardens themselves cover an area of approximate 3.7 acres and are principally laid to lawn with a variety of trees and hedges and other particular features including the large millpool pond with duck island, wooden getty and rowing boat, tennis court and play area with wooden equipment which is in need of some modernisation and maintenance.

The paddocks are sensibly split into different enclosures and the gardens and grounds as a whole enjoy truly fabulous views and almost total seclusion and privacy.

The whole adds up to a very special property being in the heart of the countryside yet only a few miles from the City centre of Chester and close to the villages of Tarvin, Oscroft and Kelsall. A viewing is essential in order to appreciate its quality and appeal and is sold with no ongoing chain.
