Tenure: Freehold

A rare opportunity to acquire one of South Cheshire's finest period properties. Stretton Lower Hall is a Grade II listed building which can trace its history back to the time of the Restoration and the return of the monarchy under Charles II. In his architectural guides, historian Nikolaus Pevsner has the Hall dated 1660.

The Hall is rich in period features with two stand out Dutch gables to the front elevation. It provides excellent family accommodation on three floors and has an adjoining 3 bedroomed cottage with independent access plus a residential barn conversion with a one bedroom open plan apartment. The property also has a spacious garage, log store and workshop.

The Hall's gardens and grounds include a 2 acre paddock, an orchard, a kitchen garden with mature box hedging and a set of former piggeries which could be developed to provide ancillary accommodation (subject to the relevant approvals). The total area extends to 2.82 acres.
 

LOCATION Stretton Lower Hall is in the South Cheshire hamlet of Stretton, 2 miles from Tilston and 4 miles from the larger village of Malpas. Stretton Water Mill is a short walk away down Mill Lane. The roadside Lilly pond, which is within the ownership of the Hall, is a well known landmark. Carden Park Hotel and Golf Resort is a short distance away. Barton village, home to the Cock O'Barton pub and restaurant is about 500 yards to the North, Chester is a 15 minute drive up the A41.

The property is entered through black wrought iron gates which lead to a large courtyard. To the South of the Hall there is a lawned garden with mature borders to either side and a terrace with a wrought iron pergola supporting a long established grapevine.
 

STRETTON LOWER HALL On the ground floor of the Hall there is a drawing room with an open fireplace, a sitting room with an Esse Dragon wood burner, a dining room and a kitchen with an oil fired Aga. There is also a utility room, separate W.C., rear hall and boot room, and a large cellar.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms, one en-suite and one with a four poster bed and open fireplace. There is also a family bathroom and separate WC.

On the second floor there are 3 further bedrooms, including the Master Bedroom and a bathroom with WC. In the past few years, this floor has been laid out as a self-contained flat, comprising a kitchen/breakfast room, large sitting room, bedroom and bathroom, with a secondary staircase providing independent access.

Commercial opportunity:
The Hall offers excellent potential as a Bed and Breakfast destination given its numerous strong points: flexibility of its internal layout, large courtyard providing ample off-road parking for guests and its prime location; the Barn apartment could also be used for private dining.
 

THE COTTAGE The Cottage was built onto the main Hall in the mid19th Century and provides self-contained accommodation. It has 3 bedrooms, sitting room, dining room with a polished oak floor, bathroom, kitchen and pantry. In the early 1900s, the sitting room in the cottage served as the kitchen for the main Hall; this modified layout could be considered again. 

THE BARN This 2 storey barn was built in about 1850. There is an open plan, one bedroom apartment on the first floor. The ground floor is used for storage but has the potential to be renovated to provide additional accommodation, or for other commercial uses, subject to planning.
