Description

Set in 2.4 acres of mature garden surrounded by castles and countryside, discover your rural retreat at Sidings Farm.

Rural retreat
The location of Sidings Farm is spectacular with superb, countryside views in all directions. A field away, the glorious, 12th century Beeston Castle presents itself in full view.

A long, private driveway leads up to the property. The house itself, constructed in the 1860s, is built of locally quarried sandstone which pairs pleasingly with the soft green frames of the windows and doors. Originally built for a local coal and tile merchant, spacious parking and sizeable storage barns at the home sit in a space that once functioned as a siding for the nearby railway and that gives the home its name.
Making your way toward the main entrance at the side of the home, step into a stunning courtyard filled with established planting that bursts with colour. Catch sight of the terrace as you step through the door onto York stone flooring.

Ease off your boots, doff your coat and dry the dog in a roomy and conveniently placed utility. Find space here for a washer, sink and storage.

Warm and welcoming
Delightful York stone continues underfoot into the charming dining area. Wrapped in warm, sandstone walls and filled with light, a table for eight sits easily here with room to extend. Summer invites you to open the French doors to fresh air and birdsong. As the nights draw in, feel warmth emanating from the wood-burning stove in the adjoining snug.
Light-filled living

Intriguing beams catch your eye as you look toward the kitchen. Move through to see them revealed as a stunning oak framed sunroom. Added to the home four years ago, along with a stylish new kitchen, this is a social, family space where you can sit together chatting with the chef as dinner is prepared. Full height windows in the sunroom deliver stunning garden views that extend to Beeston. French doors lead out. On cooler days, feel the warmth of underfloor heating beneath the decorative tile floor that runs through kitchen and sunroom.

Returning to the kitchen, storage abounds in charcoal grey shaker style cupboards and deep drawers, topped with an extensive light granite worktop. A Butler sink, integrated dishwasher and fridge-freezer are in place. Wrapped in the thick walls of the old fireplace, find space for a freestanding range cooker. Under-cupboard lighting adds a useful and attractive touch.

Owners’ words: “You can sit in the sunroom and chat to people in the kitchen. It’s such a lovely, social space.”

Country comforts
Retracing your steps to the dining room, move through a sandstone archway into a cosy snug with doors off. Original inset wooden cabinets by the fireplace are a touch of times past. A large wood burner warms the snug, dining room and throughout the ground floor, making this a social space for winter evenings.

Passing a stunning spiral staircase, step through to the office which comfortably holds two desks. An original fireplace makes a lovely feature while two windows draw light in and offer views to the front of the home. The fibre broadband connection is useful here.
Across the snug, find the double aspect sitting room with glazed door leading out to the garden. Substantial sandstone walls offer cool respite from summer sun. In the winter, light the wood-burning stove, bordered by another original alcove cupboard and settle in.

Taking the final door from the snug, step into the original entrance hallway for the home to find a smart shower room. Tiled in slate grey to floor and walls, a spacious, frameless enclosure with power shower offers refreshment. A stylish wash basin sits on top of convenient storage. Adjacent, a separate WC with wash basin.

Soak and sleep
Ascending the spiral staircase, original wooden doors lead to two light double bedrooms.
Following the bright, galleried landing, pass a large window with garden views and a handy storage cupboard. Step up to find a further double room and the master suite.
Decadently decorated with a rich feature wall, the master suite offers a cocoon of comfort. A chimney from below extends upwards. Windows to two walls give delightful views and offer gentle light. Tranquillity is aided by inbuilt storage keeping clutter at bay.

Arriving in the family bathroom, slide into the freestanding, rolltop bath and relax with a verdant view. Wooden flooring underfoot, a WC, wash basin and towel rail add comfort.

Blissful setting
With countryside views in every direction and set in over two acres of garden, the space surrounding Sidings Farm is vast. Watch the changing seasons play out in the abundance of mature shrubs and trees including two magnificent oaks. Wander through the orchard in the spring for blossom and in the autumn to harvest apples and plums. Whether waking to misty mornings or bright, sunny days, the landscape here brings joy.

Stepping out from the French doors of the dining room, a large terrace framed by stunning planting provides the perfect place for drinks and family meals.

Crossing the first lawn, your own tennis court awaits. Spend many happy hours here having fun and honing your skills. Sharing this part of the garden, a quirky wooden building delightfully known as “The Shack”. This fabulous space offers refreshment for tennis and much more. A characterful guest accommodation, two mezzanine areas create room for four people to sleep comfortably here. A kitchen and shower room with wash basin and WC make this a fabulous place for sleepovers and visiting guests. A secluded seating area gifts the occupants with uninterrupted views of Beeston.

Owners’ words: “We arrived here 24 years ago with small children and we couldn’t have wished for anywhere better. It’s been an idyllic family home.”

And more accommodation
Opposite the main door to the home stands a self-contained, single story annex. This could be perfect as a home for older relatives, visiting guests or perhaps for use as an Airbnb.

Built of the same local sandstone as the main house, the annex offers a kitchen, living area with wood-burning stove, shower room with WC and wash basin and a comfortable double bedroom. Glazed French doors open out from the living area to a fenced, private patio with a lawn edge.

Superb storage
Just beyond the annex, find three large barns offering 8000 sq ft of secure storage. Constructed with steel frames and clad in wood, the barns were used for business storage until recently. Enclosed within secure fencing and overlooked by CCTV, they offer a unique opportunity for commercial or hobby use.

On your doorstep
Pull on your boots for walks from the doorstep of Sidings Farm. Cross one field to join the 30 miles of Cheshire’s Sandstone Trail as it wends its way around Beeston Castle. For a lazy, waterside wander, the Shropshire Union Canal is just a couple of minutes from home offering the refreshment of The Shady Oak pub.

For Sunday lunch or an evening out, dine in one of the wide choice of restaurants and gourmet pubs nearby or perhaps take the five-minute drive to Peckforton Castle.

Being less than three miles away, Tarporley offers more opportunities to eat, is on the doorstep for essentials and has a good range of independent shops. For a wider choice, Chester is reached in just 20 minutes.

Families are well served with plenty to do near home. The Ice Cream Farm is just 4 miles away, as is Oulton Park race circuit. Chester Zoo and the delights of Delamere Forest can be reached in around half an hour.

Good primary and secondary education is available in Tarporley. For private schooling options, look no further than Chester and Hartford.

Being just off the A49, Sidings Farm is well placed for commuters. Manchester and Liverpool are around an hour by car. Hartford offers direct trains to London with links from Cuddington to Manchester and Chester. Liverpool and Manchester airports are both accessed in around 45 minutes.

Sidings Farm is an idyllic family home surrounded by beautiful countryside and offering a unique business opportunity. As a property that could seamlessly combine business and pleasure, could Sidings Farm be just what you’re looking for?
