For those looking for a property with extra space to enjoy an outdoor lifestyle, then this period six-bedroom period farmhouse could be right up your street.

Surrounded by Cheshire's rural beauty, the home and its accompanying five acres of land are located off Ainsworth Lane, just half a mile outside the village of Crowton.

Having had an extension added around 30 years ago, the house is of a substantial size, with accommodation set across two storeys.

The farmhouse is listed for sale by Wright Marshall at £870,000 after first being listed at £930,000 on November 10.

Inside, the main entrance hall splits two of the ground floor accommodation rooms, the family room and the living room/study.

Through the family room is the kitchen which has ample dining space and views of the front garden.

From here access can be gained into the dining room which in turn provides access to the second kitchen/utility as well as double doors to the conservatory.

Upstairs there are six bedrooms, one of which benefits from an en suite bathroom with a family bathroom servicing the other rooms.

Posting on Zoopla, a Wrights Marshall spokesman said: "A most impressive six-bedroom detached house extending to approximately 3,200 sq ft and benefitting from a beautiful rural aspect as well as gardens and land extending to around five acres.

"Due to the design of the extension which was carried out, the accommodation lends itself to being split into two different areas with separate staircases leading to each providing good levels of privacy between the two parts.

"Attractive views can be enjoyed from the first floor across the grounds and adjoining countryside to the side and rear.

"Externally the property is accessed via a gravelled driveway with ample parking for several vehicles and this is flanked by attractive gardens to both sides.

"To the rear is a small area housing the shed and central heating boiler. Of particular note is the land, which will be of interest to those with an enthusiasm for equestrian activities, although the current vendors have enjoyed it as accommodation land.

"A new eight foot by eight foot greenhouse was added a couple of years ago.

"The current owners have lived in the property for more than 30 years and have enjoyed it as a family home benefitting from close local links to the villages of Crowton and Acton Bridge as well as further transport links.

"This hugely appealing property provides adaptable and extensive accommodation which would be of interest to those working from home or requiring extra accommodation either for a large family or those in need of ancillary accommodation."
