Porch House Farm occupies an elevated position with views over open farmland to the front.
Since it's development, a continuous programme of improvement and refurbishment has since been undergone and the farm house now represents the finest contemporary living combined with traditional features.
Internally there is an impressive reception hall plus a further five reception rooms and a large family kitchen fitted out to the highest possible standard with a recent electric Aga and limestone flooring. There is also a small wine cellar, utility and cloakroom/WC. Six bedrooms on two further floors are served by five bath/shower rooms all of which are particularly well appointed with contemporary sanitary fittings.
The traditional feel of the house has been created by the use of massive timbers and natural materials inside and out and we believe it is one of the finest examples of its type currently on the market in this area.
The grounds total approximately two acres and comprise private walled formal gardens adjacent to the house, sunken sitting area, breeze house and barbecue pit plus a small paddock ideal for football pitch! The garages and coach arch with roller shutter doors give secure covered parking for 4 or more cars and there is hard standing for any number of vehicles.
Stockton Heath village boasts a first-class range of shopping, schooling and recreational facilities. The nearby motorway system brings Manchester, Liverpool, Chester etc. within easy commuting distance and there are fast and frequent train services to London from local stations. Manchester International Airport can be reached normally in about twenty minutes by car and the area is surrounded by glorious Cheshire countryside.
From our office in Stockton Heath proceed along Walton Road into Walton New Road and at the end turn left onto A56 Chester Road. Continue for approximately half a mile and at the traffic lights, turn right onto Runcorn Road. Follow the road for another half a mile and Porch House can be found on the right hand side distinguished by a Gascoigne Halman for sale board.
