Full description

This substantial 5 bed detached farmhouse is accessed via a tree-lined road with its own private entrance and large courtyard within a lovely rural position on the outskirts of Billinge enjoying stunning south facing views towards south Cheshire. There is an option to rent up to 3 acres of attached land with a large convenient outbuilding and stone barn available to either purchase or rent separately which have potential for equestrian facilities. Originally built in 1596 and later extended in 1957 'Wiswalls Farm' is an undiscovered gem as it has been in the same family for several generations. Opportunities like this are incredibly rare - although the property requires modernisation, it offers fantastic potential with a surprisingly well-planned and desirable layout for modern living, together with lovely period features and exceptional views. Situated in the highly desirable area of Billinge it occupies a near perfect location on the edge of the all the houses and bordering open farmland meaning it's not isolated (being only a 15 minute walk from the schools) yet enjoys a rural feel & countryside views. It is sited next to a working farm but the house and farm will have their own entrance and the gardens are extremely private and not in any way overlooked. This house is one of the largest farmhouses we have marketed and affords nearly 2700 square feet of internal living space alone it benefits from gas central heating, full uPVC double glazing. The large formal lounge features big south facing windows with great views, a fireplace and original beamed ceiling and the master bedroom is directly above this on the 1st floor which has even better (elevated) aspects with most of the rooms enjoying pleasant aspects over the private gardens. Outside, there is a fully enclosed and substantial garden to the rear which wraps around one side of the property with aspects over open fields and the local countryside. There is also a large patio area, greenhouse, outside utility/large washhouse and store. There is off road parking to the front of the property and currently a carport/double garage which requires refurbishment but offers further potential with a large loft space which could be utilised. Up to 3 acres of land in the adjacent field are available to rent from the farmer. The barn adjacent and modern barn opposite the house are also available to rent or buy by separate negotiation.
