A lovely Old Rectory with land in a prime village location.


The Old Rectory is in a prominent position on the edge of Tarporley with far reaching south-westerly views over beautiful rolling South Cheshire countryside.

Tarporley is a highly sought-after village with an attractive Georgian high street offering an excellent range of amenities including a community centre, tennis courts, convenience stores, fashion boutiques, cafes, restaurants, dentists and doctors surgeries, public houses, three churches and a comprehensive bus service.

The village is also renowned for its excellent educational facilities with Tarporley Primary School and Tarporley High consistently maintaining a strong reputation. Those seeking a wider choice of schools will find ample provision with the Grange School in Hartford and in Chester with the impressive choice of Kings, Queens and Abbey Gate College.

The City of Chester (11 miles) is one of the north west's leading retail and commercial centres serving a catchment area extending from Manchester to Shrewsbury and covering the whole of North Wales. Chester also gives access to the motorway network providing a link to other north west and
midlands conurbations and to Liverpool and Manchester airports.

The leisure opportunities are also excellent. Portal Golf Club and Carden Park Hotel and Spa both have championship golf courses and a range of other facilities. There are also numerous walks in the area and polo at the Cheshire
Polo Ground. It is only 13 miles from Crewe and a regular rail service to London Euston (approximately 1.5 hours).

Please note all travel times and distances are approximate.


The Old Rectory is perhaps the finest house in the village. It is a substantial Victorian house of rare quality and character set in the heart of the village with generous gardens and grounds, including a swimming pool and tennis court, exceptional rural views and in close proximity to the village landmarks of the beautiful St Helens parish church and the iconic Swan Hotel.

The property is approached from the High Street via a private road leading to a sweeping gravel drive at the front of the house. The oak front door sits beneath a tiled copy and opens into a reception hall, itself a magnificent room with stairs leading to the first floor with a wonderful oak balustrade and newel posts apparently of an earlier period than the main house. It has a distinctive tiled floor and also offers access to a small original chapel.

The drawing room is a particularly fine room with a fireplace, a bay window with a window seat and a study area to one end. The dining room provides excellent entertaining space, and like so many of the ground floor rooms benefits from the lovely views. Beyond is a breakfast kitchen with a good range of fitted units and an Aga. Off the kitchen is a garden room/conservatory. Completing the accommodation at ground floor level is a sitting room, pantry, laundry room and cloakroom.

At first floor level the accommodation continues to impress with the half landing having a window overlooking the views to the rear and the landing itself being spacious and elegant. The master suite is impressive in terms of proportions and has a large en suite bathroom. Bedrooms two, three and four are all large doubles and the house bathroom is again a good size and well appointed. Bedroom five has been cleverly designed so as to offer potential to be a self-contained suite having adjacent to it a kitchenette and bathroom. There are two further bedrooms, a study and a store room.

Externally the property has numerous features of merit. To the front of the property there is a sweeping gravelled in and out driveway and access to the useful outbuildings that incorporate a double garage and further additional garage. To the front there is also a raised area of lawn with mature trees, whilst the rear and side gardens are principally laid to lawn but also incorporate a tennis court, swimming pool and pond. The rural views beyond the gardens are a real delight and very rare to be found in such a central village location.

The land adjoins the gardens and sweeps down from the garden terraces to the pond at the bottom. It is an area of great amenity value and also offers equestrian opportunities. The total area is 4.525 acres.
