Introduction - And what a fine home to live in - The Old Farm is so appealing, believed to one of the oldest house in the village and bearing the date 1653, and sits proudly in the village setting. The extensive renovation has retained the ambience and character of many original features including a lovely original A frame, Georgian bars in the windows and timber to the front and sides. The newly fitted kitchen and bathrooms have been designed sympathetically with the originality of the old farm house. Each and every time you return home you will enjoy the time and effort our clients have put into restoring this home to its rightful condition.

. - Within minutes' walk to the OFSTED rated Outstanding Christleton Primary and High Schools, the Law College, the excellent Ring O'Bells and Plough Inns, this is a prime Cheshire village at its finest. Winner of the best kept village award several times over. Christleton is the ideal base with a walk along the Shropshire Union Canal to Chester City and providing good fishing, boating, dog walking and perhaps stop for a drink, at the excellent Cheshire Cat Inn which is about a ten minute walk. The village duck pond, only minutes away the other direction towards Littleton is ideal for taking younger members of the family to feed the ducks and swans and enjoy the Children's playground just beyond.
There is something for everyone close by from country clubs with spas to a good choice of golf courses, Christleton Sports Ground, rugby, Cricket Club and water sports on Manley Mere in nearby Mickle Trafford. In fact Christleton was recently voted by The Times as one of the best Child Friendly villages.
