Tilstone House lies on the edge of the hamlet of Tilstone Fearnall, a couple of miles south of the Cheshire village of Tarporley, which boasts historic buildings, numerous antique and fashion shops as well as excellent eating places.
The nearby market town of Nantwich is similarly picturesque with many black & white Tudor properties and provides more comprehensive services, shops, supermarkets and excellent schools.
Chester, only 12 miles away, is renowned for its superb shopping, ancient buildings and the excellent King's and Queen's Schools. The are a number of good local schools and The Grange School at Hartford, Cransley School at Antrobus are well regarded.
The Chester and Ellesmere Canal, as part of the Shropshire Union canal system, passes close by and the landmarks to the South of the Peckforton Hills, Peckforton and Beeston Castles stand above undulating Cheshire countryside are a perfect setting for country walks to one of many rural pubs.
Oulton Park Motor Racing Circuit and Cheshire Polo Ground are within only a short drive and equestrian facilities and livery are generally available nearby.
A wonderful example of a property carefully restored and adapted to meet contemporary needs, whilst still retaining the original flamboyant decorative grandeur of a 19th Century country house.
The Mark Wilkinson kitchen has been extended into an informal family dining area and the original walk-in pantry and adjoining Butler's pantry / utility room have matching designs. There are four principal reception rooms and the large reception hall can be extended into the lounge when entertaining needs arise. The first and second floor bedroom suites are all well appointed and will easily accommodate family and visiting guests and there is a second floor service kitchen. There are linen rooms, storage rooms and cellars befitting a house of this calibre.
The main house has been augmented by a West Wing which is linked by the conservatory and has won an award for its seamless integration with the original building. This offers considerable scope for ancillary accommodation, offices or consulting rooms although presently offers 5 further bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a second kitchen and 2 reception rooms.
The leisure facilities, tennis court and garaging have been carefully positioned within the grounds to be both convenient for the house but also to be relatively inconspicuous and, in the case of the swimming pool, to be energy efficient.
Garaging is provided by a triple garage block with a rear kitchen and a first floor games/cinema room, whilst the second double garage has a rear workshop and the gardener's rest room. The driveway is gated and there is an elaborate security system with CCTV.
