Blackrock Farm lies in an elevated setting nestled within the foothills of the Peak District National Park. Although situated in a rural location, the village of Bollington is just over 2 miles away whilst Macclesfield town centre is approximately 3.5 miles. Macclesfield provides an excellent range of amenities and the mainline railway station offers a 1hr 48 min service to London Euston. There are some excellent local schools including The Kings School and Beech Hall Preparatory School along with well regarded state schools and many South Manchester private schools within easy striking distance. The Peak District National Park and The Gritstone Trail are on the door step and the area abounds with golf courses, leisure and sports facilities.


A rare opportunity to acquire an attractive stone built detached farmhouse in addition to a recently converted detached stone built barn. The barn has been finished to a particularly high standard and benefits from permission to be used as a holiday let or ancillary accommodation to the main house. The farmhouse is believed to date back to the 17th century in parts and has been sympathetically extended, remodelled and upgraded over the years resulting in a truly desirable family home. Blackrock Farm enjoys an elevated position with enviable far reaching views over the surrounding countryside and towards the Welsh hills. The spacious and well balanced accommodation extends to approximately 2,000 Sq Ft in the main house. An enclosed porch leads through to a welcoming reception hall with multi fuel burning stove, beamed ceiling and stairs to the first floor. Situated to the right of the hall is a well proportioned living room with triple aspect and beamed ceiling. To the other side of the hall is a split level dining kitchen fitted with a range of Oak fronted units and a red two oven Aga. The kitchen leads to the formal dining room which in turn leads through to a fitted study. A utility room completes the ground floor accommodation and provides access onto the rear gardens. The first floor landing leads to a well appointed family bathroom and four well proportioned bedrooms with the master bedroom benefitting from en-suite facilities. The detached stone built barn provides an additional 900 Sq Ft of accommodation and has proved to be a successful holiday let business for the current vendors with good occupancy levels throughout the year. The barn provides three bedrooms and two shower rooms to the ground floor. The first floor accommodation is open plan in layout with a modern fitted dining kitchen with integrated appliances to one end and a well proportioned living room to the other. Blackrock Farm sits within a generous plot of approximately 1.21 acres with well stocked gardens believed to have in excess of 20 species of trees. A gated block paved driveway leads to a parking area ample in size to serve both the barn and main house. Worthy of note is the detached stone dairy situated between the main house and the barn which has also been converted and is currently used as a gym. Planning permission has been granted for the construction of a double garage (planning reference: NP/M/0208/0153).

Please note there is high speed fibre optic internet available at the property.

For those seeking a character family home situated in a truly stunning location with the added benefit of ancillary accommodation or the option to run a holiday let business, Blackrock Farm provides the perfect opportunity.
