Full description

A SUBSTANTIAL five double bedroom EQUESTRIAN property set at the heart of 22 Acres (approx.) of grazing land and gardens within a stunning rural location boasting panoramic views of the Peak District.

Lower Birchenough Farm is one of the premier properties in the Mellor area. Nestling in the hills above the village, the property is surrounded by an extensive network of footpaths, tracks and bridleways and is ideal for those with outdoor or equestrian interests.
This substantial property has been sympathetically restored by the current owner to create a well planned family home which is also ideal for entertaining on a generous scale. The property retains many original features and boasts a wealth of exposed beams and timbers. This beautifully presented home briefly comprises; entrance hall with downstairs WC just off, dining room with wood panelled walls and glazed doors leading out to the garden, lounge with feature fireplace, study, large dining kitchen with four oven Aga and central island unit, utility, walk-in pantry, wine store and boiler room.
To the first floor there is a further lounge with feature fireplace and windows to three sides affording spectacular views.

The master bedroom on the first floor includes a stylish en suite and large dressing room with storage area. There is a further bedroom on this floor again with an en suite. To the second floor there are three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
This impressive property is approached via a long driveway which leads to a large parking/turning area and to the detached garage block which provides insulated garaging for up to eight cars. The garage block also has a WC and the first floor provides extensive space which can be used a as gym or to create a separate annexe if required. There is an attached stone built garden store with its own storm porch. There is also a further stone outbuilding which is used as a barbeque store and opens to a beautifully laid out stone flagged barbeque area, ideal for entertaining.
There is a stone built stable block with four loose boxes, covered saddling area, power and lighting and access to the grazing land.

This outstanding property is set within grounds extending to 22 acres (approx). There are beautiful formal gardens which are mainly laid to lawn interspersed with thoughtfully planted trees and shrubs, well stocked borders and a selection of paved patio areas affording fabulous far-reaching views. The grazing land is divided into several fields and paddocks, allowing for rotation of grazing and accessible directly from the stable block. As previously mentioned there is a wide network of lanes, tracks and bridleways on the doorstep and so main roads can be avoided when riding out.
Only a personal inspection will allow potential purchasers the opportunity to appreciate fully the quality and extent of this unique property and viewing is strongly recommended.
