A superbly presented quintessential village house which has been completely refurbished to an exceptional standard


Silver Birches occupies a prominent position in the heart of the village of Eaton, a charming village 1.5 miles from the larger centre of Tarporley.

Tarporley is one of the most popular Cheshire villages. It offers an excellent range of services with a thriving high street with independent retailers, pubs, bars and restaurants, good state schools, a championship golf course and other leisure facilities.

Eaton has a well regarded primary school and outstanding independent schooling can be found in Chester (12 miles) and at Hartford (8 miles).

The property is well situated for access to the motorway network and Crewe station has direct services to London Euston (from 1.5 hours).


Silver Birches is a delightful, part thatched house offering beautifully presented accommodation on two floors. Grade II listed, it is thought to date from the early 18th Century with 19th Century additions. It has recently been modernised and interior designed (using Horton & Co Interiors) to an exceptional standard with considerable skill and attention to detail. The result is a stunning property.

The careful combination of two structures provides highly versatile accommodation suitable for a wide range of potential buyers.

The front door opens into an impressive dining hall with an inglenook fireplace and a useful study to one side. A staircase and cloakroom (with wonderful high-level Thomas Crapper cistern) is adjacent to the comfortable family room, just off the high quality Smallbone kitchen which has limestone flooring, an Aga and a utility room to the side.

The drawing room provides excellent formal entertaining space and has impressive fireplace and a dual aspect.

Through double doors is a south facing, part glazed, garden room which has limestone flooring and underfloor heating. This room provides access to the lovely walled garden and is an ideal area for outside dining.

Beyond is a further hallway serving a WC, again with Thomas Crapper chinaware, a ground floor bedroom suite, a second kitchen and sitting room (currently utilised as a gym and playroom). This area could provide excellent secondary accommodation for relatives or staff. Stairs from the hallway lead to a quite exceptional entertaining space incorporating a
bespoke contemporary bar and cinema/games room. The roof structure is exposed to reveal spectacular oak beams.

From the dining hall a set of stairs accesses the remainder of the first floor with a mater bedroom suite, with a dressing room and bathroom, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. All bathrooms have underfloor heating.

Double security gates open from Lower Lane and the drive sweeps up with parking beside the detached double garage. The main gardens are south facing and laid to lawn with various shrubs and plants. The front gardens contain two mature Silver Birch trees which presumably gave the house its name.

Square Footage: 4,160 sq ft
