Blackshaw Farm stands in a superb, elevated setting at the head of a long private drive with breathtaking views of the surrounding hills. The village of Hayfield, at the foot of the valley, is often regarded as 'the gateway to the Peak district' and lies in the foothills of the Pennines, and especially Kinder Scout. The area is a magnet for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits and the stone built village has a range of shops catering for many day to day requirements. There is a Primary School in Hayfield, Secondary Schools in Glossop and Chapel-enle- Frith with Stockport Grammar, Kings School
Macclesfield and many other private schools within reach. For those who enjoy the hills and need access to Manchester and the surrounding commercial centres, this is a superb rural haven within easy striking distance.


This magnificent farmhouse property stands within about 34 acres of moorland and pasture and has a superb range of outbuildings including a 69' x 18' barn. The house has undergone a continual upgrade programme and offers very generous accommodation arranged over three floors and is ideal for families and for entertaining with substantial reception areas and our clients have gained

flagged roofs are of the local vernacular and property such as Blackshaw Farm blend beautifully into the surrounding upland landscape.

A door leads off to the games room/family room beyond which there is a gym or study, both with double aspects.The bespoke family kitchen has solid marble surfaces over traditional farmhouse style cupboards and opens to the breakfast area, with doors leading to the dining room, sitting room and a rear porch on the courtyard side. A utility room lies off the kitchen and in turn has a door off to the cloakroom with a w.c. & wash hand basin. The first floor has the master bedroom suite with its fitted wardrobes, dressing room and en-suite bathroom, a guest
bedroom with a dressing room and en-suite bathroom, a third large bedroom suite with a large dressing room and en-suite bathroom, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom and a staircase leads up to a sixth second floor bedroom. The outbuildings include a 69' barn/store which houses the private water supply system, heating boilers and back up generator for the mains electricity. There are twin LPG heating systems and a separate 4 car garage.
