This charming, red-brick period farmhouse dates back to the 19th Century and was once used as a substitute place of worship on the Byley Estate. Amongst the many original features, which includes two large inglenook fireplaces and exposed ceiling and wall timbers, is a priests’ hole! With three reception rooms, fitted kitchen, utility room, conservatory and six bedrooms, this much-loved property provides ample accommodation and would benefit from up-dating to create a stunning family home.
The gardens at Manor Farm, whilst mainly laid to lawn, are private and surrounded by a mature hedge and complemented by a mature orchard.
The Farm Buildings
There is no doubt that whilst the traditional brick buildings, complete with cobbled yard, have potential for development (subject to any necessary planning consents), they continue to offer valuable utilisation for agricultural purposes. There is a variety of more modern buildings, one of which houses the former parlour, and a silage clamp. For those with equestrian interests, there is certainly scope to adapt the buildings for horses.
The land extends to 137.53 Acres (55.66 Ha) with the majority found to the south of the farm buildings in one ring-fenced block. Predominantly classified as Grade III on the soil survey on England and Wales, the land is suitable for grazing or arable crops and is currently in grass with one field of potatoes. A hardcore access track runs through the farm and provides good access to most fields with others having road frontage.
Byley is in the heart of the stunning Cheshire countryside, midway between Middlewich and Holmes Chapel, and is home to an excellent farm shop. Both nearby towns have a variety of amenities including supermarkets, independent shops, pubs, restaurants and leisure facilities and the area is well-served educationally with both private and state schools. Middlewich and surrounding area is well-known for equestrian links including Southview, Somerford Pak and Kelsall Hill and the area around Manor Farm provides endless opportunities for hacking out. With railway stations at Holmes Chapel and Winsford, excellent road links and a number of airports within 45 mintues’ drive, Manor Farm provides the perfect combination of a tranquil, rural location with easy access for commuters.
