Stone built farmhouse for updating in a lovely rural yet convenient setting with a range of outbuildings and stores. Character and potential.
A superb stone built farmhouse in a lovely rural yet convenient setting with a range of outbuildings and stores. With plenty of character, exposed wall timbers and beautiful mellow local sandstone this is a property ready for buyers to update to their own taste and style.
The front porch opens into an entrance vestibule with a stone floor. Off to the right is the cosy snug with its dual aspect and stone fireplace and multi-fuel stove. To the left of the entrance hall is a surprisingly large main reception room with timbered walls, a splendid stone fireplace and hearth with a real fire. To the rear is a dining room and a connecting door to the breakfast kitchen with oak door base and wall cupboards, integrated appliances and a dresser unit with glass fronted cabinets. There are fantastic views over the gardens and countryside. There is a substantial pantry store backing onto the inner hall area. A large utility/boot room lies to the rear and this opens off to a generous conservatory which makes the most of the views and outside entertaining space.
The inner hall has a stone floor, a staircase to the first floor and a cloakroom/shower room off with a w.c. and wash basin. Beyond the inner hall a door leads through to what is currently a workshop with an outside door and an inner door leading to a side hall with front and rear external doors. A staircase leads up to an amazing vaulted games room, some 31' x 16' which could provide for an additional reception room or an incredibly generous principal bedroom suite.
Below this is the large double garage with roller and electric up and over doors, a door to the front of the property and an adjoining wood store building which could be easily integrated in to the main house.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms, two with wash hand basins and a house bathroom with a spa bath. The principal bedroom has a comprehensive range of fitted wardrobes and bedroom furniture. One of the bedrooms has first floor access to the large games room and could provide a good dressing room to a principal suite.
The property has a range of outbuildings including a two storey barn which could provide home office space with an external staircase and to the rear is a former garage, now used as a storage/workshop and an adjoining garden store with a hay loft.
The gardens extend in all to about 0.75 acre and have amazing views over the Cheshire Plain. There are extensive lawned areas, shrubbery borders and cottage garden area. A pond lies at the end of the gardens and the driveway leading past the front of the house extends around to the rear for access to the garage and out buildings. A stone terrace area is perfect for taking in the views while entertaining in the summer months.
