This exceptional detached farmhouse enjoys a superb position on the fringe of Tarporley village. Located just one mile from the centre of the Village's beautiful Georgian high street, the property combines the very best of rural living with the convenience and centrality ideal for day to day life. The present owners are now downsizing into the detached barn adjoining Springfield Farm. Both properties have the benefit of their own private driveways, granting seclusion and privacy to each property

Internally the accommodation offers exceptional space for a family that can be adapted and altered to suit differing requirements. The accommodation opens with a beautiful entrance hall that is large and imposing and has a galleried aspect to the first floor landing. There are also doors that lead to the cloakroom, three reception rooms and breakfast kitchen. Prospective purchasers will note from the photograph a lovely gong that was gifted from the previous owners to the present owners of Springfield Farm and indeed will pass to the new owners in keeping with this tradition. The principal living room is of a fantastic size that has as its focal point an open fireplace. From the living room access can be gained to the beautiful formal gardens to the rear. There are two further reception rooms at ground floor level, they being a formal dining room, again with feature fireplace and views to the front and a very versatile further reception room presently utilised as a sitting room/library. The unquestionable highlight of the ground floor is the large open plan breakfast kitchen. The kitchen itself comprises an extensive range of cream wall and floor cupboards together with sliding drawers and good quality appliances. There are black granite preparation surfaces, lovely views over the rear garden and more than ample space for a large table and chairs. A large open plan kitchen has become an essential part of family life and this excellent open space is sure to impress prospective purchasers. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a well planned utility room, adjacent to and accessed from the kitchen and a rear hall that leads out to the side driveway and has a second staircase that rises to the first floor.

The first floor accommodation is again large, impressive and enjoys many attractive aspects. The landing is in itself a lovely feature of the house being an elegant space and having a beautiful window that frames perfectly the view over the fabulous landscape gardens across the driveway. In total there are five bedrooms, two of which have the benefit of an en-suite facility. The principal bedroom, as one would expect, is of an excellent and generous size and the en-suite being comprehensively equipped. The second bedroom is a large double with a view over the rear garden and views beyond and has a smaller, but practical en-suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms, two of which are large doubles, one having a wash hand basin and the third of which is presently utilised as a study but could easily be a comfortable single bedroom. These are served by a good sized family bathroom.

Externally there are numerous features of merit that are worthy of note. The first is the lovely gravelled driveway approach that adjoins open countryside. Immediately in front of Springfield Farm is a large private driveway that provides ample off road parking. There is a further double width area of parking to the side of the house providing parking for several vehicles. The detached double garage has recently been constructed with electric door and log store/bike shed. The gardens are to the front, side and rear. The gardens to the front are a spectacular space with a beautiful water feature/pond as the focal point with many seating areas and shaped areas of lawn surrounding. Through this front garden looking towards the house provides a most beautiful aspect. The garden to the side predominantly comprises a raised area of turf which is ideal as a croquet lawn. There is also elevated within the site a fabulous full sized tennis court. The rear garden has been landscaped with great thought and intelligence so as to provide beautiful raised terraced areas ideal for morning coffee or alfresco dining in the evening and also is an abundance of colour by well stocked beds and borders. An attractive small paddock / field is located to the rear of the garden, being versatile in nature and having post and rail fencing.

Properties of this size and quality rarely come to the market and a viewing is highly recommended in order to appreciate the excellent views, superb living space and individual quality of this fine detached residence.
