Daresbury Hall is a former country house in the village of Daresbury, Cheshire, England. It was built in 1759 for George Heron.[1] The house is constructed in brown brick with stone dressings, and has a slate roof.[2] Its architectural style is Georgian.[1] The house is in three storeys and seven bays. It has a stone plinth and stone bands between the storeys. Framing the middle three bays are rusticated pilasters, and similar quoins at the corners. All the windows are sash windows. Along the top of the house is a plain parapet, with a pediment above the central three bays.[2] For some years from 1955 it was used by a charity, now known as Scope, as a residential home for handicapped people.[3] The house has been designated by English Heritage as a Grade II* listed building.[2]
