The Moathouse is a stunning individual detached residence of considerable character and quality. It is located in a superb position in a quiet no through lane, set in gardens and grounds of 2.597 acres and enjoys terrific panoramic views to the rear. The house has been in the present occupation for 24 years and the opportunity to purchase is therefore a special and rare one.

The property is an excellent family home that offers spacious accommodation in excess of 2350 sq ft. There is obvious scope to further extend the property if desired, subject to the necessary planning and Grade II listed building consent being granted.

As presently configured the accommodation opens with an entrance porch which in itself is a most interesting room having exposed sandstone and beams. The principal reception room is a fantastic size measuring 23' x 21'2". It has a visually striking fireplace as its primary focal point. The dining room is again very well proportioned and could be utilised in a number of different ways to suit individual requirements. The breakfast kitchen has ample space within it for table and chairs and located adjacent to this space is a very useful additional reception room used by the present owners as a snug. There is a rear hall with tiled floor and a separate utility room and cloakroom.

At first floor level the accommodation continues to impress with the true character of the building being displayed to its maximum extent. The principal bedroom has a tastefully appointed en-suite bathroom whilst the three further bedrooms are served by a family bathroom.

Externally the long driveway widens to a parking and turning area providing space for several vehicles. Useful outbuildings are provided via the large garage and workshop.

The gardens and grounds are an absolute delight and can only be truly appreciated when inspected. In addition to large expanses of lawn, there is also a private lake, multiple patio and terrace areas suitable for al fresco dining and a well tended paddocks of relatively flat gradient. The gardens and grounds enjoy significant levels of privacy, maturity and establishment whilst the views to Beeston Castle are quite remarkable.

Priced at a competitive level, located in one of the finest positions close to Tarporley village and offered for sale for the first time in 24 years, an early inspection of this excellent property is thoroughly recommended. 

LOCATION The subject property is situated in the delightful settlement of Beeston on a private no through road in the lee of the Peckforton Hills. At the northern end of the ridge stands the well known land marks of Beeston and Peckforton Castles. Beeston Castle was built as a fortress in 1228 and became a royal garrison for Henry III and his barons. It was dismantled in 1645 by Order of Parliament and is now a picturesque ruin. Peckforton Castle is a Victorian mansion built in imitation of a medieval castle by the Tollemache family, and is now a well regarded
hotel.

Located in some of the prettiest countryside in Cheshire, Beeston is consistently one of the most desirable addresses in the region. There are fantastic walks on the doorstep and amazing wildlife can be seen in a day to day basis.

Beeston also lies close to Bunbury and Tarporley village and the City Centre of Chester. The village of Bunbury is approximately 2.5 miles away with its own general store, butcher, farm store, cafe, two public houses and a beautiful church which dates back over 1,000 years. Of particular note is Bunbury Primary School that enjoys an excellent reputation for academic excellence.

Tarporley (four miles) is one of Cheshire's most highly regarded villages that boasts a bustling High Street with a diverse selection of shops including convenience stores, fashion boutiques, cafes, restaurants, veterinary practice, public houses, Doctors Surgery and several Churches. The village also has its own community centre, playing fields and Dentist surgery.
Excellent educational facilities are provided via Tarporley Primary and Tarporley High School, both of which enjoy strong reputations.

Other nearby amenities include Oulton Park Motor Racing Circuit, ancient castles, boating facilities on nearby canals and the ever popular Delamere Forest. There are several golf and tennis clubs within short travelling distance.

The house also offers an excellent base for the business traveller with the A49, A51 and A55 quickly reached by car. Major commercial centres of the North West can be reached via the straight forwardly accessed M53, M56 and M6 Network. Direct line rail services run from Crewe and Chester to London, Euston within 1.5 and 2 hours respectively.
