LOCATION Lower Rock Farm is an attractive former Peckforton Estate farmhouse, set in a prime location in rural Cheshire. The property offers spacious, flexible and very well presented family accommodation, with generously proportioned rooms and stunning views over the surrounding countryside and towards Peckforton and Beeston castles.

It is situated just below Beeston Castle in some of Cheshire's most attractive countryside and enjoys far-reaching, rural views. It is also within daily reach of Manchester and Liverpool, and Crewe mainline train station offers a regular service to London Euston (from 1 hour and 34 minutes).

The Cathedral City of Chester, a Heritage City with Roman and Tudor origins, has a great array of shops, notable schools including Kings & Queens School, an expanding university and sporting facilities.

DESCRIPTION Lower Rock Farm is approached from the Tattenhall Lane via an impressive entrance with substantial timber electric gates set between brick piers with sandstone finials. The gates open onto a tree lined tarmac drive serving the land and buildings before sweeping round to a parking area beside the house. The attractive former farmhouse very much echoes the local vernacular with brick elevations beneath a slate roof and is set in pleasant gardens with an orchard beyond.

The front door opens into a Hall with one of two staircases leading to the first floor. There are doors to an Entrance Hall, which in turn leads to a spacious Drawing Room with a fireplace and wood burner, and to a Sitting Room which in turn leads to an East facing Sunroom which catches the morning sun. A back door from the drive opens into a Reception Hall from which there are doors to a Dining Room, a Study and an excellent family Kitchen, with a good range of fitted units. A utility room and a WC complete the ground floor accommodation.

The second stairs to the first floor lead from a lobby between the kitchen and reception hall. On the first floor is a wide Landing with fitted wardrobes and an impressive Master Bedroom suite with a large Bathroom beyond and a child's Bedroom/Nursery. There are a further 3 double Bedrooms and 2 Bathrooms.
 

EQUESTRIAN FACILITIES The principal stable block houses an exceptional range of 10 Monarch stables complete with 2 wash bays with hot shower facilities and Monarch solariums, a kitchen, WC and a secure tack room. The stables area is rubber floored throughout.

Adjacent to the house is a large traditional barn with 4 newly equipped stables at the rear together with a tack room, drying room and store room. At the front are a series of store rooms offering potential for conversion for a variety of uses including a home office, an annexe or leisure facilities. Planning consent has been granted for a 4 bedroom conversion and a substantial home office. To one end are 2 garages.

A section of the Dutch barn provides an isolation stable with the balance offering ample storage for shavings and haylage. A separate barn is used for machinery storage and adjoins a gated muck store. A well maintained manege provides all year round exercise and training facility and the land is arranged in a series of railed paddocks accessed via a central spine road, with automatic water drinkers.

Approximately 14.4acres, with a further 8.6acres adjoining available by separate negotiation.
