Where every day feels like Christmas!

At Gascoigne Halman, we have some beautiful properties that embody festive charm all year round. Whether your love cosying up by a crackling fire, or gazing at frosted hills from your window, we have some properties that will really catch your eye this Christmas.

Quintessentially British and full of character, chapels and vicarages are some of the most coveted properties in the UK, offering an unparalleled blend of period charm and modern elegance in the home. For those looking for a quaint haven of their own, or an entertaining space for the whole family, here’s two of our favourite former ecclesiastical properties:

The Chapel House, Macclesfield

The Chapel House, located near Rainow and a short drive from Macclesfield, is set amidst expansive west-facing gardens, boasting an idyllic open landscape. Converted into a stunning family residence across three floors, this property boasts exquisite period features throughout. On the ground floor, a magnificent main lounge with a balcony displays breathtaking views of the Peak District. Also featuring a spacious sitting room, an impressive hall with a galleried landing, and a cosy study, this hidden gem creates a warming environment for all who visit.

On the lower ground floor, a generous dining kitchen sets the stage for festive feasts and celebrations, prepared for the holiday season. The first-floor hosts four bedrooms, including a master suite and walk-in wardrobe, with plenty of space for families. Outside, a deep driveway leading to the garage and a lawned rear garden adorned with trees offer a charming landscape of the scenery.

The Vicarage, Tarporley

This remarkable property, The Vicarage, boasts six bedrooms, three bathrooms, and five reception rooms, inviting you to celebrate the festive season in style. Forget chimneys as Santa might just ring the doorbell at the grand Old Vicarage, a mere five-minute drive from Tarporley village! Behind the gated entrance lies ample off-road parking, making it a beautiful home for entertaining loved ones all year round.

The pièce de résistance of this estate is the recently refurbished outbuilding, now hosting a heated indoor swimming pool—a perfect way to unwind from the busy season. Surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens spanning at an acre, expansive lawns, and a spacious York Stone terrace, this setting offers the perfect canvas for family celebrations. With its blend of historic charm and modern amenities, this unique property promises an enviable location for a Christmas filled with laughter, joy, and the warmth of home.
