Tanyard Farm will capture the heart of any buyer who delights in the appeal of a traditional Cheshire Farm house dating back to the 1800s. The property has been lovingly upgraded sympathetically restoring all of the period features. The property is complimented by two brick built barns which are arranged in an "L" shape and adjoin an attractive cobbled area with wildlife pond.

A york stone path borders the lawn to the front of the property with views over the orchard, which has a variety of fruit trees including apple, pear, quince, damson, plum and mulberry.

The rear garden, which enjoys southerly aspect, includes a large lawn with well stocked borders enjoying open views over the Crown Estate. A green lane runs around the rear of the house to further croft and paddock / garden area with additional pond and range of brick built buildings comprising of two former pig sties and WC.

To the North West of the farm house there are two ample sized, well fenced paddocks with automatic water troughs and a double mobile field shelter as well as a productive vegetable area with room for hard standing and a Greenhouse.

The equestrian facilities of Tanyard Farm are truly exceptional. The current owners commissioned Land Tech solutions to install a 60 x 20 arena with a Martin Collins all weather wax surface and Beverley Brightman training mirrors. Electric gates open onto a Tarmacadam driveway leading to concrete hard standing providing excellent access for a horsebox or trailer.

There are two barns, one currently home to three Monarch stables with sliding doors, kick boards and rubber matt flooring. The intricacies of the outbuildings are captured within the floor plan but in essence include a work shop, carport, feed room, secure tack room and wood store with a further additional stable. It may be that a future buyer may see scope for conversion into residential units, this of course would be subject to planning.

This stunning farm house has original Oak ceiling beams throughout. A beautiful picture full height rear window allows light to flood through the central stair case, a traditional feature of a true Cheshire Farmhouse. The entrance hall with Oak floor leads to a cosy library with stone flooring, benefitting from underfloor heating. The study sits at the rear boasting a dual aspect with further access to the cellar. The sitting room with log burning stove has a duel aspect with French windows opening onto a large patio area leading to the rear garden.

The large farm house style dining kitchen has been recently fitted with a bespoke range of painted Pear Wood units to include a welsh dresser with double wine fridge storage and at the heart of the kitchen an oil fired Aga. The central island has an Oak top with chopping board complemented by Granite work surface.
