    About this property

    • Enjoying an idyllic rural setting in approximately 2 acres on the edge of Wilmslow and Mobberley, Burleyhurst Farm is a most handsome Victorian farmhouse. It is believed to date back to 1870 and was formerly a working farm, with the main house complemented by detached outbuildings comprising a barn, stabling and garaging with electric gates. This 19th century farmhouse retains historical charm inside and out and includes cast iron fireplaces, high ceilings with dado rails, sash windows, exposed wooden beams, original wooden flooring and beautiful ceiling roses though has also received a number of modern touches including, double glazing, the farmhouse-style kitchen with its wood cabinetry, granite work tops, central island, AGA and Miele & Neff appliances, a Bose sound system and contemporary bath and shower rooms. There is planning permission in place (23/4145M) to convert the existing barn and stables into a separate 2,500 sq ft dwelling with new vehicular access.

      The 3316 sq ft of accommodation is well appointed throughout, in a modern rustic style that's ready for immediate occupation though still offers the new owner plenty of scope for personalisation. The rooms are spacious and bright, with lots of natural light and double aspect rooms, with good proportions to the reception rooms and bedrooms, making it an ideal family home. There are four reception areas, formal living, sitting and dining rooms and an office/snug, while the kitchen is well equipped for entertaining and also benefits from a separate utility room and a cloakroom & WC. Of the five generously sized bedrooms two are en suite, while the remaining three bedrooms share a family bathroom.

      The property is set in about 2 acres of formal gardens and a paddock with stunning open aspect views to the front, side and rear over neighbouring green belt fields. The outbuildings are separate to the main house, forming a paved courtyard in the middle that provides ample private parking, and includes a double garage, stabling and a large barn. The gardens that surround the property are mature and thoughtfully stocked with a wide variety of shrubs, trees and flowers.

      It is very much a rarity to find a property of this merit, with acres and outbuildings with further potential to develop yet within 1 mile of Wilmslow town centre and the mainline train station.
