Curtain up on sale of Elizabethan mansion

24/05/2016

A landmark site in the historic market town of Nantwich has been launched to the market. Built when Shakespeare was just 13 years old, in 1577, Churche’s Mansion is a stunning half-timbered Elizabethan mansion, with enchanting diamond lead windows.

As the world marks the four hundredth anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, this stage is marketed with a guide price of £1.1 million. The oak boards – and stone floors extend 3,500 square feet providing commercial space, a four bedroomed apartment, walled garden and extensive parking.

Head of sales at Balfours, Tim Main says: “This is a fascinating property with unique opportunity - the commercial space was previously an award winning restaurant. Churche’s Mansion was built in 1577, by a wealthy local businessman as his family home; it is a rare surviving merchant’s house, with many original features. Its most recent use was for the sale of antique furniture.”

“For an entrepreneur seeking to lift the curtains on a business where the objective is to impress and fascinate with a memorable backdrop to the experience, then Churches’ Mansion has to be considered. This property’s pedigree speaks for itself, within its historic track record is an era as an award winning restaurant and more recently as one of the best 50 antique shops in the UK; as named by the Independent,” Tim adds.

The stunning ground floor rooms include the dining room, the long oak panelled room and the timber framed front room. The dining room is central and would have originally been known as The Great Hall, used for entertaining, while the long oak room was the “withdrawing room” –for the ladies, after the great feast.

Meanwhile on the opposite side of the dining room the timber framed room was once known as the Buttery, butt being the early word for a barrel. This was the service room, filled with dried goods, many would have been stored in barrels or casks to supply the kitchen, plus barrels of mead, beer and wine. And so the household office in charge of the Butter became known as the Butler.

Much more than a landmark, Churche’s Mansion is a wealth of original 400 year old intrigue, among its stage acts are a delightful walled garden and an apartment where the light shines bright, ready for a new performance in the 21st century.
