A handsome period property from the 17th century with additional courtyard outbuildings and impressive leisure facilities

The benefits of owning Gatesheath Hall far surpass the chance to live in a beautiful period property with 17 acres of wonderful gardens, paddock and woodland — as you can say goodbye to monthly gym membership payments with one of the most impressive indoor leisure facilities we've come across.

Any future owner of Gatesheath Hall — in the village of Tattenhall, eight miles south-east of Chester — will have all the ingredients for classic English weekends, with an all weather tennis court, stabling, paddocks, indoor swimming pool, summer pavilion, billiards room, gym and wine cellar.

The house, which has parts which could benefit from a touch of light decorating, is currently on the market via Jackson-Stops at a guide price of £3.25 million. 

In addition to the principal property, there are a number of outbuildings — both old and new, which provide ample space for stabling, machinery stores, workshops and a large garage.
