Stretton Hall Farm

Country House

The hamlet of Stretton, near Tilston in South Cheshire is a Conservation Area encompassing a cluster of varied and attractive properties. From a pretty half-timbered cottage to the splendour of Stretton Hall, all defined by handsome sandstone boundary walls.

Stretton Hall Farm was, until recently, a busy working dairy farm. The steading was a dense complex of mostly twentieth century barns and shippons. Our challenge was to radically clear and re-structure the site and create a spacious and comfortable country home.

The solution in two parts first involved extending the Edwardian farmhouse with bays to either side of the principal elevation, and a large extension to the rear. The intention of this strategy was to ensure that the original symmetry and solid character of the house were not overwhelmed by the dramatic increase in its size. The second phase involved creating a traditional courtyard round a grass island, renovating the original farm buildings and converting them into ancillary living accommodation, garage, kennels and storage.
