Full description

A property which offers everything! Superb Farmhouse, Annex, Rental Cottages (with further development potential), Equestrian facilities, 21 acres and a breathtaking location offering easy commute.
The Farm was constructed in 1904 but the days of it being a traditional farm are long gone - its 21st Century incarnation is dramatically different given the fabulous conversion of the beautiful range of stone outbuildings to the east of the homestead into three quite superb and strikingly individual cottages. Not only is the property one that one can derive a significant income from rental / letting, it is also a marvellous home in its own right and if that wasn't enough, it also forms a superb equestrian unit.

Those who take the sensible option and undertake a viewing will readily see that the quality throughout is a credit to our clients, the main dwelling, the outstanding Annex, and the cottages themselves have all been subjected to painstaking refurbishment. There is in addition, further unrealised potential and many will no doubt explore the feasibility of creating maybe an oak framed link from the main farmhouse to the Annex so as to incorporate the wonderful facilities in there into the main body of the house, whilst from a business perspective, there is actually planning permission for three further cottages, and it should be noted that the groundwork for that has been done given the works undertaken to the unconverted barns which are currently used in the main, for stabling.

The main house comprises three delightful Reception Rooms as well as a traditional Kitchen, and on the first floor are four Bedrooms, whilst the Annex forms an outstanding entertaining area with its substantial Drawing Room and formal Dining Room together with Kitchen facilities, and Wet Room. The three cottages all have a distinct ecclesiastical feel to them, given the use of so much church salvage, and they all therefore provide fascinating accommodation with an abundance of quirky but endearing features. One has just one Bedroom, another has two Bedrooms, and the largest, has three Bedrooms, two of which have mezzanine levels providing the potential for further occasional sleeping accommodation. The cottages will be sold fully furnished, including kitchen utensils and crockery.

The surrounds to Pearls Farm are immaculately kept given the neat and tidy tarmacadamed driveways and parking and turning areas, and there are lovely formal gardens complemented by a gazebo (ideal for a hot-tub), whilst one of the cottages has a substantial stone walled sun terrace, and another, a lawned garden and similarly, a stone walled terrace. Given its Peak District National Park location, it probably won't come as a surprise for many to hear that there are spectacular views.

The property is set within some 21.19 acres located in the main, to either side, and this incorporates a wild flower hay meadow and ample grazing, and as mentioned previously, stabling, which, as alluded to before, is of a quality commensurate with the remainder. There is also a superb stone walled rubberised sand Menege.

Notwithstanding the dramatic setting of Pearls Farm, Its ideal location given the proximity of the towns of Macclesfield, Congleton, Leek and Buxton, all of which have their own identity, and their own style of facilities, and shopping. The former does of course, provide commuters with a wide network of Inter-City rail services, including hourly trains to both Manchester and London on weekdays.

Pearls Farm is set in land which extends to 21.19 acres or thereabouts and is suitable for grazing and mowing purposes. The land surrounds the buildings to all elevations and is completely ringfenced. Having been utilised for equestrian purposes the land is segregated into smaller paddocks and incorporates a rubber and sand based Menege with hardstanding access from the driveway enabling use all year round. The stone ourbuildings which adjoin the three holiday cottages form an impressive range and have permission for the conversion into three further residential units. The basic works have already been undertaken with re-roofing and substantial floors to the loft areas and there is a natural division to create three more cottages. Presently the outbuildings are used for stabling purposes with looseboxes and tack area, fodder storage and workshop and garaging. The property as a whole is immaculately maintained with a sweeping tarmcadadem driveway which allows for dual...
