An immaculately presented country house with land.
Cherry Tree Farm is approached via electric timber gates and a sweeping driveway leading to the front of the house. It stands in a private, commanding position with far reaching views over its own grounds and land and the beautiful countryside beyond.
It offers highly versatile accommodation within the main house to the west and in the substantial east wing or annexe with leisure facilities, office space and secondary accommodation.
The property is entered through a timber front door opening into an impressive reception hall with a bespoke sweeping staircase at the far end. The house offers outstanding entertaining spaces with a stunning drawing room, a useful adjoining butler's pantry and an elegant dining room. The drawing room has a substantial stone fireplace and French doors opening on the garden terrace. A further door from the hall leads to the wine cellar. The entertaining areas extend into the garden with a structure known as The Folly providing a dining room, with storage units and a wc.
The heart of the house is found in the family kitchen with high quality bespoke units, an island and an Aga with an electric companion. French doors open to the garden and into an oak framed conservatory, a wonderfully light room with light sensitive blinds and a bar area. Again French doors open into the garden. On the opposite side of the kitchen is a sitting room.
Beyond the conservatory is a hallway doubling as a boot room with useful storage. Beside the hall is a laundry room with a cloakroom and drying room opposite.
The rear hall, adjacent to the conservatory, forms a link with the east wing/annexe providing the opportunity of incorporating some or all of this accommodation with the main part of the house. There is a large cinema room, gym, office, kitchen, sitting room, shower room, two bedrooms and a wc.
The curved staircase from the reception hall opens into a grand and light landing space with space for an informal seating area on the first floor. From here there are wonderful views across the front lawns through a triple-aspect timber framed window. The principal bedroom suite offers great accommodation with an impressive walk-in-wardrobe and a beautiful, bespoke marble en suite with a bath and separate shower. There are 4 further spacious bedrooms in this part of the house, 3 with en suites. There is also a large family bathroom.
Outbuildings and Facilities
To the side of the West wing of the main house, you will find a bijou brick and timber summerhouse, named The Folly', overlooking the tennis court and patio towards the rear of the property. This is complete with storage units, wine and beer coolers, a wc and ample dining space. Adjoining the back of this is a storage unit with power sources and the oil tank for the main house. The tennis court is in fantastic working order with floodlights and is surrounded by fencing and a great variety of shrubs and plants.
Past the East wing of the house are 2 large metal framed storage sheds providing storage and workshop spaces. The rear shed has an area to store a motor home and also contains a powerful backup generator, perfect for supplying electricity for garden events or in case of power shortages.
Gardens and Grounds
Mature gardens and grounds encapsulate the large family home with stunning panoramic views across Shropshire and Cheshire. This is an outstanding feature of Cherry Tree Farm. The driveway sweeps through to a turning area with access to the gardens at the front of the house. An apple tree archway lead into the orchard beyond which is an open field offering equestrian potential. Further round is an impressive pond and a vegetable garden with its own irrigation system making use of waste water from the house. Away from the house, behind the pond, a wind turbine has been installed which provides a sustainable electricity source and also benefits from The Government's Feed-in-Tariff scheme.
Moving past The Folly off the West wing of the house, more hedge lined mature gardens flow around the tennis court with tall hedges offering complete seclusion and privacy. A long pathway surrounded by an array of flowers, specimen shrubs and trees leads to a wonderful timber feature in a similar style to an ancient Greek urn. The garden then curves round to a mature space with a statuesque ash tree providing even more character to the grounds.
To the rear of the property is an open haven with a stunning outlook and a specially designed ha-ha making the views appear to roll into the garden. Below the recessed level of the garden beyond a fenced boundary is a series of fields. The land is crossed by a public footpath. The total area is approximately 26.46 acres.

Cherry Tree Farm is truly spectacular. The quality, design and versatility of the accommodation is unique, and the gardens and grounds are very special. This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire one of the most iconic houses in South Cheshire.Charlie Kannreuther
