Merchant House

Hinderton, Neston, Wirral

Merchant House (plot 3)

Hinderton, Neston, Wirral, CH64 7TS

An imaginatively converted barn appointed to a high standard throughout with large south facing gardens, occupying an extremely private setting.

Merchant House is one of  a pair of superbly designed individual homes which occupy a lovely woodland setting within the grounds of Hinderton Hall, close to the market town of Neston on the Wirral Peninsula.

They form part of a range of traditional buildings which were originally agricultural buildings to Hinderton Hall and latterly used as office space until they became unoccupied, being sold from the Hall in 2017.

The property was converted to office accommodation, but more recently has been unoccupied until it was sold away from the Hall in early 2017.

Since then Merchant House has been subject to a comprehensive and sympathetic scheme of renovation by developers Kartre Ltd who have created a superb country property ideally suited to family living but also for variety of other buyer profiles.

Constructed of stone and brick under a slate roof, Merchant House is fully deserving of its Grade II Listing having impressive front and rear facades and an abundance of character.

Such character comes from the high ceilings, some exposed timbers and sandstone walls, some arched and porthole windows with stone sills and headers, stone quoins and a turned staircase with high vaulted stairwell.

Benefits come from modern building techniques and the use of high quality materials throughout including insulation, piped under floor heating to the ground floor, pressurized gas fired heating and water system, high spec bespoke kitchen and bathroom fittings and floor coverings to include quality tiling, carpets and engineered oak. The property is also wired for free view, satellite television and Cat 5 networking.

The Property

The barn has since been subject to a comprehensive and sympathetic scheme of renovation by developers Kartre Ltd who have created two impressive country properties ideally suited to a wide spectrum of the market including the family buyer, single person or couple, either professional or perhaps those downsizing.


Beyond and attached to Merchant House is the remainder of the range which is in separate ownership and in the course of being converted to two additional residential units.

The properties are constructed of sandstone and brick, the rear elevations having off white K-rend, under a slate roof with parapet and benefit from connection to all mains services and with fibre broadband connection available. They have been comprehensively converted with the use of high quality materials throughout including insulation, gas fired heating and water system with combi boilers, full re-wire, high spec bespoke kitchens and bathroom fittings and floor coverings to include quality tiling, carpets and engineered oak.


The accommodation is arranged over two floors and is well laid out, making the most of the open views across the adjoining fields from the first floor and with the main everyday living space having double aspects to the front and rear, and sliding doors opening directly to the main gardens. The kitchen with open plan seating and dining areas forms the main focal point of the house and provides fantastic everyday living spaces. The kitchen features bespoke hand-made and painted units with extensive cupboards and drawers beneath composite granite and oak work surfaces, one and a half bowl stainless steel sink unit with mixer, a long peninsula island with breakfast bar, tall integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher, and integrated cooking appliances to include AIM electric oven and induction hob. A gas connection is piped to the kitchen should any interested parties require a gas appliance.


At the working end of the room is porcelain tiled flooring with engineered oak flooring in the seating and dining areas, where there is a television connection for a wall mounted device and plenty of space for a dining table and chairs, and comfy seats/sofas with coffee table.


The property has an additional formal reception room with a large picture window overlooking the garden at the rear.


At first floor level the property has three bedrooms, a useful study area and 2 bath/shower rooms, the latter being en-suite to the master bedroom.



Merchant House occupies an extremely private and peaceful setting within the Hinderton Hall Estate, accessed via a long drive and with a lovely aspect across adjoining fields and woodland.

The immediate surroundings are impressive and home to all sorts of wildlife, and helps to create the blend of an established mature environment with the quality of a recently renovated building.

Neston and the popular village of Willaston are both within 2 miles of the property and provide local services for everyday needs with shops, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants, doctors and dentist surgeries, as well as high street banks. Chester and Liverpool are both about 10 miles away which offer a wide range of shopping, schooling and leisure facilities.

On the recreational front, there is a wide selection of sporting facilities nearby including the well-known Neston Cricket Club which also offers tennis and hockey, rugby club at Clatterbridge and several golf courses locally including Royal Liverpool and Heswall.

Schooling is well catered for with primary schools in Neston, Willaston, Thornton Hough and Heswall and a choice of both state and private secondary schools nearby including West Kirby Grammar, Caldy Grammar, Birkenhead and The King’s and Queen’s Schools in Chester.


To reach the property from Chester, travel in a north westerly direction along the A540 Parkgate Road for approximately 9.5 miles to the crossroads with traffic lights on the edge of Neston, next to which is the Hinderton Arms Public House. Continue straight over and the entrance for The Hinderton Hall Estate including The Coach House will be seen on the right hand side.

Continue along the drive, which is initially shared, bearing left at a fork, and continue for a further 100 yards or so passing The Coach House on the left. Bear around to the left and the entrance for Merchant House will be found on the left hand side.


Despite the property’s semi-rural location it benefits from excellent road communications with the A540 Parkgate Road providing fast access to Chester and the M56 motorway.

Liverpool and Chester are both within easy commuting distance as is Manchester via the M56. For travel further afield there is a 2 hour inter-city rail service from Chester to London Euston via Crewe with a link from Hooton, and there are international airports at both Liverpool and Manchester.
