When we first viewed the property just over 3 years ago, we were immediately taken by the striking architecture and the amount of open space on all sides," recall the current owners."The location is fabulous and everything we need is easily accessible. The surrounding countryside is simply beautiful and offers ample opportunities for scenic bike rides and long walks. There are some lovely eateries in the near vicinity within walking distance, as well as a good choice of local shops just a short drive away in the car. We are 15 minutes away from Ellesmere which is a renowned tourist attraction offering picturesque walks around the lakes, woodland and parkland.""The house and garden lend themselves perfectly to relaxing and entertaining. The walled garden is particularly attractive and there are a number of seating areas for outside entertaining. Most of the green space is south facing, so it's nice and sunny all day long and the vast expanse of lawn and large field is perfect for children to play. There is plenty of space for parking and we've held fireworks parties here which have been great fun, as well as summer evening get-togethers in the central courtyard. The reception rooms are all of a good size and flow really well, so there's plenty of space for our guests to mill around.""We have updated the living areas and have given the rooms more of a contemporary feel to make the most of the light and bright spaces. It's difficult to choose just one favourite room as we enjoy them all, but the drawing room is quite stunning as it's a large room with half height oak panelling and is great for entertaining. The family sitting room is a very relaxing room where we enjoy wintry evenings in front of the wood burning stove, whilst the dual aspect music room has beautiful wooden flooring and overlooks the garden. The kitchen is another well used room with east and west facing windows which fills the space with lots of light throughout the day. Horton Hall is a hugely versatile house with well laid out accommodation which could even be configured to create an annexe," conclude the current owners....Read full description
