    About this property

    • The Manor Farm is a charming Georgian family home with an extensive range of outbuildings. The property offers prospective buyers the opportunity to upgrade the existing house and to retain the outbuildings for farming use or conversion to additional accommodation (subject to the necessary planning permission and consents).

      The property is approached through a gated entrance over a private driveway leading to a part-cobbled courtyard. From the courtyard there is access to the outbuildings (made up of seven barns). The existing planning permission for the barns (20/01972/FUL) is for conversion to two 3-4 bedroom properties.

      The accommodation opens into a lovely reception hall off which the principal reception rooms are centred and there is a lovely Georgian staircase to the first floor. There is a large sitting room with a brick open fireplace, a spacious family room with a wood burning stove, a triple aspect glazed garden room and inter-connecting external store. A well-proportioned dining room with an open fireplace and a useful study are situated to the right hand side of the hall. A kitchen with adjacent utility room/bathroom completes the ground floor accommodation.

      On the first floor there is a large principal bedroom with dual aspect windows, four further well-proportioned bedrooms and a modern family bathroom with separate walk-in shower and adjoining WC.

      Outside, the formal garden is laid mainly to lawn with mature trees. The private gardens and grounds enjoys wonderful, far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside.

      The total area of land is about 6.31 acres.

    The Manor Farm offers buyers the opportunity to acquire a traditional Cheshire farmhouse in one of my favourite areas of South Cheshire, and a very exciting prospect of converting the existing outbuildings.
