Property description

Brookside Farm enjoys a semi-rural position within the adjacent hamlets of Cuddington and Chorton. Although small, Cuddington and Chorlton have a strong community ethos which centres around the village hall. Nearby Malpas has a range of local shops, restaurants, pubs and amenities including two small supermarkets and is home to an impressive, and well-supported, 14th Century church. The market town of Whitchurch was described in The Times:

"Few market towns are as unsullied as Whitchurch, in Shropshire. This is another place with a big heart, where church and community groups have been working tirelessly to help those in need during the Covid-19 crisis. The surrounding countryside is a rolling delight. It feels reassuringly remote despite being only 20 minutes by rail to Crewe, from where you can get pretty much anywhere by train."

The historic City of Chester, which boasts defensive walls constructed by the Romans, provides extensive shopping along with a broad range of commercial and social facilities.

The area is extremely well served educationally with a superb selection of both primary and secondary state and private schools with the well respected Bishop Heber High School and Malpas Alport Primary School being only two miles distant.

The local area is steeped in history and natural beauty. The Sandstone Trail is considered by many to provide the best walking in South Cheshire and there are a number of footpaths and bridlepaths, including the lengthy Bishop Bennett Way, criss-crossing the surrounding farmland. There are a plethora of equestrian facilities in the vicinity and the network of quiet country lanes and bridlepaths surrounding the property offer excellent opportunities for riding out.

With excellent road links and nearby rail links, along with a number of international airports within 1.5 hours' drive, this property would be ideal for those needing to commute further afield for work. This attractive area combines the best of both worlds offering the opportunity for a truly rural lifestyle whilst still being within close proximity of urban facilities.

This attractive and imposing period farmhouse offers a blank canvas for buyers to renovate and modernise the property completely to their own tastes, having not been occupied for a number of years. There are a wealth of original features throughout the property which could be enhanced to reinstate the property to its former glory. Externally these include decorative chimneys and leaded sash windows. Internally there are attractive tiled floors, exposed beams and open fireplaces.

The ground floor is formed around a central reception hall which gives access to the four main reception rooms with the current kitchen and utility room situated in a single storey lean to on the side of the house. Three bedrooms are found to the first floor all of which have the benefit of built in wardrobes and these are serviced by a substantial sized bathroom and a separate WC. A further staircase leads to the second floor, and whilst currently divided in to three attic rooms these could readily be altered to provide further accommodation.

The farm benefits from a range of traditional brick farm buildings with potential for continued agricultural or equestrian use or conversation to residential dwellings subject to any necessary planning consent. These buildings are located in close proximity to the farmhouse and are formed around a concrete yard. The house and buildings sit in 16.54 Acres.

Mature gardens encircle the house with a cottage-style garden extensively planted with flowering plants and shrubs to the front and a more open-lawned style garden, with stream meandering through, to the rear. A charming fruit tree orchard, which includes apple and pear trees, is found beyond. Mature trees and shrubs border the roadside and ensure that the house has a feeling of total privacy and seclusion. Although these gardens have become somewhat left to their natural course in the last few years it is clear that with some work they could be returned to their original glory.
