A handsome country house with land close to a popular Cheshire village
Lower Hampton is in an attractive rural location, about 2 miles from Malpas. Malpas is a picturesque English country village, recorded in the Doomsday Book, with a fine gothic Church (St Oswalds) and buildings in a mixture of architectural styles.
Malpas has a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants. Bishop Heber High is an outstanding secondary school, situated on the outskirts of the village. There are excellent independent schools in the area, including Kings, Queens & Abbey Gate schools in Chester, Packwood Haugh and Moreton Hall in Shropshire.
Chester (15 miles) is one of the north west's leading retail and commercial centres and provides access to the motorway and rail networks. London Euston can be reached in about 2 hours from Chester and 1½ hours from Crewe (19 miles), Whitchurch Station (5 miles) offers a regular service to Manchester Piccadilly (1 hour).
The area offers a wide range of leisure opportunities. Carden Park (6 miles) has two championship golf courses, a hotel and an excellent fitness club. There are lovely walks on the Bickerton Hills, fishing on the River Dee and polo at the Cheshire Polo Ground.

proportions. It is situated on a country lane with the gardens flanked by paddocks, ideal for ponies. The elevations are in an attractive mellow red brick beneath a slate roof. The property requires modernisation and offers a wonderful opportunity for a renovation project.
