- 4 Bedrooms
Bickerton Farm Barn sits in an idyllic semi-rural setting within the village of Bickerton. The property enjoys superb south-westerly panoramic views across some of Cheshire's finest countryside, towards the Bickerton Hills.
Bickerton is a pretty village, offering a village hall with tennis court, church and scout group. The nearby villages of Tattenhall, Bunbury and Malpas offer a broad range of day-to-day amenities, whilst Chester offers comprehensive opportunities. On the recreational front the vicinity offers some outstanding walks along the nearby Sandstone Trail, golf and fitness at Carden Park Golf Club and Spa, mountain biking and horse-riding prospects including hacking opportunities.
The area is well served by state schooling including Bickerton Church of England Primary School, (within a short walk), Tattenhall Park Junior School and Bishop Heber High School,
Malpas, the latter deemed "Outstanding" by Ofsted. Independent schooling includes King's and Queen's Schools in Chester, Ellesmere College and Abbeygate College, Saighton.
Bickerton is well-placed for commuting to the commercial centres of the North West by road and rail with direct rail services to London, Euston from both Crewe and Chester stations within 1¾
and 2 hours, respectively.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire the former stable block to the neighbouring Bickerton Farmhouse, with consent to convert into a
substantial four-bedroom property. The buildings are believed to date back to the 18th Century, of dressed sandstone under an attractive clay tiled roof. The northern wing of the building is being retained by the neighbouring farmhouse for amenity use or future development.
The property benefits from a private entrance directly off Clay Lane, providing privacy from the farmhouse and will benefit from extensive parking, along with approval for a double garage.
The accommodation will briefly comprise a storm porch, outer hall, inner entrance hall, large lounge through sunroom, a snug, family/dining kitchen, utility room, WC and cloaks. To the first floor is proposed a master bedroom with exceptional views and en suite, a guest bedroom with en suite facilities, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The proposed accommodation will extend to approximately 3,500 sq ft GIA. The
paddock sits to the south east, adjoining the formal gardens and is generally flat, enclosed by mature native hedging, ideal for a couple of ponies, small livestock or for general amenity use.
Planning approval was granted by Cheshire East Council under application no. 20/2769N on 10 March 2021. The application forms part of a larger scheme which includes work to the
farmhouse and northern wing of the barn. Full planning documents are available on the Cheshire East Council Planning Portal, but also available from the selling agents. Prospective buyers must satisfy themselves of the approval and relevant
plans and Fisher German will not be held responsible for any omissions.
The property and land being offered are shown edged red on the plan within these sales particulars. The vendor will be responsible
for erecting a new boundary to the north east and west of the barn, thereby separating the barn from the farmhouse. The purchaser will be responsible for maintenance of all other boundaries.
