Parr Green Hall is a notable period property which was formed from a former farmhouse and its farm buildings. Dating from the early 17th century, the house was renovated in 2004 and now offers a sizeable country house with secondary accommodation and extensive outbuildings.

Constructed of reclaimed Cheshire brick and period timber framing under a slate roof and the renovation has created an excellent family home with an open-plan feel. Period features include exposed wall and ceiling timbers, oak doors and a large sandstone chimney breast. The dining hall forms the centre of the house, and is constructed of oak and mainly glass walls.

Accommodation in full comprises: dining hal, kitchen/breakfast room with open plan sitting and dining areas, playroom, drawing room, study, sitting room, pantry and boot room on the ground floor; upstairs are the master suite and four double bedrooms (all en-suite).
