Sublime setting
Within easy reach of some of the most sought-after towns and villages in Cheshire, discover New Hall Farm, nestled in a tranquil setting opposite a handsome old schoolhouse replete with spire and clock.

A grand Victorian building, New Hall Farm dates back to 1878, once part of the Lord Crewe Estate. Balancing character with the need for contemporary comforts, New Hall Farm recently underwent extensive renovations involving the installation of a new plumbing and heating system alongside a full rewire.

Updated to create a flow more in keeping with modern living, almost every aspect of the home has seen work carried out, with modifications to doorways in addition to the most impressive upgrade: a magnificent kitchen-diner-family room extension, designed to maximise views out over the countryside to the outlying hills.

Pull along the driveway and park up, there is an abundance of space for several cars and ample room for the addition of a double garage if required.

Warm welcome
Manicured lawns and borders, brimming with colourful planting, surround on route to the original front door. Step through to the broad and bright entrance hall, carpeted in biscuit, with cheerful Farrow & Ball Yellow Ground walls. Throughout the home, a palette of Farrow & Ball creates an ambience of understated elegance, with heritage tones celebrating the traditional parts of the home and contemporary shades lifting the newer elements of the building.

Exemplifying the blend of old and new at New Hall Farm, beams crisscross the ceiling overhead, with an elegant ceiling rose embracing the chandelier above. Original Minton tiles meet with the carpet, flowing out towards the foot of the staircase. For now, sneak a peek at the dining room on the immediate left of the front door.

Period features
Solid wood parquet flooring complements the wrought iron candelabra lighting above, whilst the open fire inset within its formal surround adds ambience. Light streams in through two large, original windows to two aspects, providing views out over the neat gravel driveway and landscaped lawns. With its high ceiling, fringed in cornicing and deep skirtings, this room is the perfect entertaining room for special occasions.

Turning right, make your way through to the heart of the home, the modern, kitchen-dining extension. Enter into the practical area of the kitchen, where an array of modern cabinetry containing cupboards and drawers provides plenty of space for all your culinary essentials. A central island also serves as a sociable breakfast bar, topped in granite and with a fitted wine rack. A sink is nestled within the worktops to the side, set beneath a large beam-topped window, capturing views out over the lush garden.

Heart of the home
Opposite, a Range cooker is nestled within a red brick inglenook, emanating warmth and welcome throughout the seasons. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher and fridge. Travertine tiles extend underfoot.

A room saturated with light, the kitchen opens out to a double height family space, where a corner of glass within a remarkable bespoke oak frame draws the outdoors in. After dinner, settle down on the sofa in front of the log-burning stove and savour the sublime countryside views and sunsets over the Peckforton hills. Soak up the sunshine from midday onwards and in the summertime, flow out through oak and glass double doors, directly onto the patio. Beyond, the manicured lawn extends seamlessly into the countryside beyond.

Tucked off from the kitchen, make your way through into the study, a peaceful room, furnished with a desk and book shelving. A delightfully light room in which to sit and enjoy a morning coffee in the sunshine, natural light streams in through a window to the side, whilst French doors open out to a quiet patio.

Follow the flow
From the study, another door opens to a spacious living room. Cheerful and bright, a large open fire sits beneath a robust beam and red brick exposed lintel, an echo of times gone by when once the Range was housed in this room. Light pours in through a broad window to the rear. Cosy in the evenings, hunker down in front of the fire with a glass of wine.

Returning to the entrance hall, note the handy cloakroom with wash basin and WC, before peeping through to a second entertaining room. Light and bright, this formal sitting room is dressed in soft sage green tones, with a crackling open fire and views to two sides through large windows.

Annex potential
Returning to the kitchen, make your way through to the back hall, where the former farm buildings have been converted to provide a further selection of versatile rooms to New Hall Farm. Traditional farmhouse feel tiling extends underfoot, whilst the exposed bread oven within the red brick offers a glimpse into the heritage of the home.

From here, visit the utility room, where there is plumbing for a washer and dryer in addition to a sink. There is also a shower room, boot room and large room which could serve as a gym.

With external access available from the rear hall, consider the potential to utilise this area as an independent annex – perfect for dependent relatives. The utility room could serve as a kitchen, with ample space for a bedroom in addition to the large living room with French doors opening onto the patio.

Room for all
Returning to the kitchen take the spiral stairs, bespoke-made locally, up to discover a double bedroom, carpeted underfoot and furnished with fitted wardrobes. Ideal as a guest suite for visitors, this bedroom features its own ensuite with WC, shower and wash basin and is privately situated away from the remaining four bedrooms, accessed via its own staircase.

Make your way to the main entrance hall, taking the stairs up to the first floor to arrive at a broad, bright landing.

Turning left, step into a sunny bedroom, with large windows to two sides, framing fantastic scenes over the garden towards the hills. Carpeted underfoot, this spacious super-king-size bedroom also benefits from its own ensuite. Sink into relaxation in the freestanding, centrally-filling bath, set beneath the window with pretty pastoral views out to the trees and countryside. Warmed by underfloor heating, this bathroom also features a separate shower and wall mounted wash basin and WC.

Rest and refresh
Across the way, arrive at the third of the five large, double bedrooms at New Hall Farm, a bright and spacious room with windows to two sides

Next door, refresh and revive in the family bathroom. Tiled to the lower walls and underfoot and warmed by underfloor heating, this bathroom is furnished with a large bath, separate shower, wash basin and WC.

Next door, with views over the garden, discover a fourth sizeable double bedroom replete with exposed, characterful beams. Currently serving as the primary suite, this bedroom benefits from its own dressing room – offering ample storage for clothes and accessories – alongside an ensuite bathroom containing shower, wash basin and WC.

Overlooking the rolling countryside and distant hills, enjoy panoramic rural views from bedroom five, another sizeable double bedroom, where the hips of beams are exposed in the ceiling adding authenticity to this Victorian farmhouse. Decorated in the most subtle grey-white, flow through into the ensuite, where a large Velux window captures verdant views over the countryside. What better scene to wake up to as you enjoy a morning spritz beneath the shower. A wash basin, WC and heated towel rail also feature.

Lush lawns and manicured borders
Outside, lush, manicured lawns and well stocked borders containing mature plants and shrubs provide year-round colour, fragrance and interest. Marvel at the rhododendrons and azaleas as spring merges into summer. Low maintenance, this established garden merely requires mowing and the occasional weeding to preserve its pristine appeal.

Near and far
Only a mile or so from the delightful and desirable village of Bunbury, there is much to see and do close by. Walk over the fields to the village (which dates back to Saxon times) and pay a visit to the historic Bunbury Watermill, take a stroll about the winding country lanes, or call in at the Church of Saint Boniface, dating back to around 1370.

Pick up the essentials at Bunbury’s selection of shops, including a Co-op and also Burrows, a fourth generation, award-winning family butchers and deli. There is an abundance of characteristic local pubs to refuel at, including the Yew Tree and the Dysart Arms. You can even sample the fiery cuisine at Panama Hatty’s.

Walking is prolific, with canal walks close by and a number of public footpaths. Take a stroll along the Sandstone Trail or scramble up the hills in Peckforton and Bickerton for incredible panoramas over the local countryside.

Tennis courts are available in the nearby village of Bunbury alongside bowling and cricket clubs, whilst there are many popular and active societies and clubs in the village hall. When dining out, Tarporley is only five miles away, and the traditional market town of Nantwich with its collection of small, independent shops is only six miles away.

Commuting is convenient, almost equidistant between Liverpool and Manchester, whilst Crewe train station – only 25 minutes’ drive from New Hall Farm, connects you to London in one hour thirty minutes.

With a range of schools nearby, including Early Birds Pre-School in Bunbury, Bunbury Aldersey Church of England Primary School, buses also pick up close by for Tarporley High School as well as the independent Kings and Queens Schools in Chester as well as The Grange in Hartford and Abbey Gate College in Chester.

A well-built home, with grandly sized, well-proportioned rooms, character comes hand in hand with contemporary additions, ensuring enjoyment of the best of both worlds. Flexible, versatile and ideal for extended or blended families, New Hall Farm, set within glorious grounds and gardens, offers space in which to socialise alongside pockets of privacy, nestled within a highly sought-after village.
