Traditional farm on Derbyshire/Cheshire border for sale

Far Slack Farm is a well-placed, pretty farm just 14 miles from Wilmslow in Cheshire and 15 miles from Manchester Airport. The house is constructed of stone elevations under a Welsh blue slate roof and is believed to date back to the mid 17th century. Recently, an extensive programme of refurbishment including re-wiring, re-plumbing and re-decoration has taken place which included installing a four oven Aga in the kitchen and log burning stoves in the hall and drawing room; both the master bathroom and the family bathroom have traditional caste iron claw-footed baths.

In total the accommodation comprises entrance porch, reception hall, dining room, farmhouse kitchen, drawing room, study, shower room/WC and upstairs a master bedroom suite plus four further bedrooms, family bathroom and a first floor sitting room/games room. The house also has a self-contained apartment with two bedrooms and a living room.
