Description - Milldale Farm is a splendid detached country house, constructed of brick under a tiled roof and approached over a long private drive. It is believed to have been built for the Fletcher Twemlow Family in 1884. The house was tastefully enlarged in the 1980's. Over the last twelve months the current owner has carried out a scheme of refurbishment with taste and attention to detail. The property offers stylish living by incorporating modern contemporary design with the balance and proportion of a period house. Arranged over three floors, the adaptable accommodation retains many original features including fireplaces, ceiling cornices and a stunning staircase.
The drawing room is an impressive well lit room with a period marble fireplace. The hub of the house is undoubtedly the superb kitchen/family/dining room with a range of contemporary units.
Outside, the range of buildings is a significant asset and can be utilised to suit individual requirements. Planning permission, Application No. 16/00828/FUL has been granted for conversion of the stable block/coach house into a two bedroom dwelling. Copies of the plans and planning permission are available for inspection at our Nantwich office. The outbuildings extend in all to about 5500 sq.ft. (gross internal).
Perhaps its most appealing feature is its unique setting, being 400 yards down a private drive, enjoying glorious views in all directions over its own grounds and countryside beyond.
