A magnificent family home with a 2-bedroom annexe set within c. 9.3 acres of land, surrounded by open Cheshire countryside

This large family home has been beautifully designed to provide flexible accommodation filled with light from its open country setting.

Entering from the courtyard, the reception hall, with its travetine flooring and open wooden staircase, provides a stylish welcome to the house. The spacious drawing room includes a feature inglenook fireplace, with a Clearview wood-burning stove, as well as double French windows opening out onto the large side terrace to further extend the living space out in the gardens. The dual aspect dining room has double French windows opening out onto the oak covered rear terrace providing the ideal setting for relaxed al fresco dining. The kitchen has been fitted to a high standard with contemporary units, integral range cooker and ovens, and granite surfaces throughout. The ground floor has underfloor heating throughout and also includes a separate utility room and cloakroom, along with a private sitting room with open fireplace and wood-burning stove.

On the first floor, the triple aspect master bedroom suite has two Juliette balconies overlooking the countryside, as well as a separate dressing room and dual sink en-suite bathroom. Three further bedrooms, one ensuite, and a stylish family bathroom provide flexible accommodation.

Across the courtyard from the main house, the annexe includes a good sized sitting room with a large picture window overlooking an open courtyard, two bedrooms, a bathroom and a kitchen/breakfast room with French windows opening onto a sheltered terrace and private garden.

This property has 9.31 acres of land.


Set within approximately 10 acres, the house is approached via a long tree lined driveway set behind electric security gates, leading to a large open courtyard between the main house, the annexe and outbuildings. The gardens have been stylishly designed to blend visually attractive settings with practical family space and extensive views across the surrounding open fields. The annexe also has its own garden with a terrace and summer house, providing privacy for guests or independent family members.


The property is set on the edge of the hamlet of Sound, adjacent to the local primary school and within easy travelling distance of Wrenbury which has its own doctor’s surgery, railway station, Post Office, general store and primary school.

Private schools in the area include the Kings School, Queens School, The Grange in Northwich and Abbey Gate College in Saighton.

Nearby Nantwich is a charming market town set beside the River Weaver with a wide range of bars, restaurants, high street and speciality shops, and several supermarkets. Despite its rural setting, the property has excellent transport links with easy access to the North West, North Wales and the Midlands through Cheshire’s network of major trunk routes and the M6 motorway. There are local and intercity rail services from Wrenbury and Nantwich, and mainline services to London Euston taking approximately 90 minutes from Crewe.


From the Strutt & Parker office, leave Chester to the south east via the A51 Tarvin Road, then take the A5115 to the North Wales Expressway. At the expressway roundabout, continue straight ahead on the A41. After 8 miles take the first right at the roundabout onto the A534 Barnhill Road, after 1.5 miles turn right onto Long Lane, then left onto Bickerton Road.
