A unique opportunity to build and create a country house estate in a spectacular position

High Ash is situated in a sought after and very scenic part of rural South Cheshire being close to the popular village of Tarporley and convenient for the historic market town of Nantwich and county town of Chester. The estate occupies a tranquil rural position with far reaching views and is available with up to 93 acres within a ring fence.

The approach is via a long tree lined drive at the top of which is the site to build the new house to compliment the existing courtyard range of buildings, cottages and modern farm buildings which are already developed.

Historically High Ash previously formed part of the neighbouring Peckforton Estate owned by the Tollemache family whose lineage can be traced back to before the Norman Conquest and who have held the Barony of Tollemache and the Earldom of Dysart. Of further historical note is Bath Wood known locally as Spa Wood which forms part of the estate. It contains a natural spring and during
the 18th Century Sir Thomas Mostyn created baths for visitors who regularly frequented owing to the alleged medical properties of the spa water.
