The house offers over 2,400 square feet of spacious accommodation over two floors (including the garage), with additional potential to convert the garage and large first floor space over into further accommodation, subject to the necessary consents.

    The layout and full extent of Tarporley House can be seen on the floor plan. Particular points of note include beautifully presented rooms, wood flooring through the hall and in two of the reception rooms, stylish bathroom suites and a contemporary kitchen. The front door opens to a welcoming entrance hall from which double doors lead to an elegant sitting room with marble fireplace; further double doors open to the dining room beyond. The kitchen and breakfast room is fitted with a range of sleek modern units with Silestone worktops, a central island and breakfast table, and a number of integrated appliances including a wine cooler. The kitchen is served by an adjoining utility room; a study and cloakroom complete the ground floor.

    There are four well-proportioned bedrooms on the first floor all with built in wardrobes, the largest with a fully marble tiled en suite bathroom, and an additional family bathroom.

    To the front of the house is a block paved driveway leading to the attached double garage, and a lawn with flower and shrub beds. There is gated access to the well-enclosed rear garden, which has been professionally landscaped to best use the space, with areas including a sandstone terrace extending along the rear of the house and around to the east, a children's play area with bark chip and built in sand pit, and a raised, level lawn with timber summerhouse. The terrace to the east of the house offers an ideal space for relaxed al fresco dining and entertaining, and is fitted with an excellent outdoor kitchen.*
