Lilac Farm was the original farmhouse to this small select development of now converted farm buildings situated in an enviable semi rural location surrounded by open countryside yet by no means isolated. Approached over a gated sweeping driveway there is an integral garage and the farmhouse stands in well maintained landscaped formal gardens with a small paddock beyond. Delightful open views are to be had in almost every direction but it is the accommodation within which really needs to be appreciated.
Our current vendor/clients have completely refurbished and remodelled the accommodation to an extremely high standard with great taste, style and flair. The end result is a character property in which one could just "walk-in" and if preferred discerning purchasers could buy the furniture and soft furnishings as is, subject to negotiation.
Whilst detailed below we believe the accommodation would provide flexible living space given the fifth/sixth bedroom to the first floor which could be, with little thought, developed into a self-contained annexe/dependant relative suite.
This super semi-rural location offers the best of both worlds for family living with some beautiful country walks in the nearby countryside although conveniently placed, with first class road networks to Knutsford, Warrington, Lymm and Altrincham all within a short drive of the M6 and M56 motorway network. Furthermore, for the commuter Manchester International Airport is close by, as is the rail station in Knutsford. Excellent educational facilities cater for children of most ages in both the State and private sectors. For the sports person, the new Golf Club at High Legh has an excellent course and there are Leisure Centres affording most other activities in Lymm and Knutsford.
From the roundabout in Canute Square travel along the Manchester Road (A50) passing the Heath and leaving the town. Continue onto where the road becomes Warrington Road and proceed to Mere. Proceed straight through the traffic lights at Mere crossing Chester Road (A556) in the direction of High Legh and Lymm. Continue passing High Legh Golf Club on your right and past the turning for High Legh village.
