A GEORGIAN country home which is currently being operated as a guest house has been put up for sale.

Pickmere Country House is an imposing period property constructed of red Flemish brick bond under a slate roof with a handsome three-bay symmetrical façade.

The Grade II listed home, which dates from 1772, was originally a farm house and is very typical of its era as its appearance has stone lintels, sash windows and rustic voussoirs with dropped keystones.

It is being listed for sale by Fisher German LLP in Knutsford with a guide price of £795,000.

Knutsford Guardian:

With 12 bedrooms, one of which is located in a separate garden annexe, the imposing property has recently gone through a period of renovation.

Currently being operated as a guest house with prices ranging from between £51 a night (for a single room) up to £150 a night for a large family room, inclusive of breakfast.

It has a full alcohol licence and a well-established grounding to progress the business should one wish as the attic rooms would lend themselves well as additional accommodation and the cellars equally have huge potential for further recreational space.

Alternatively, it is conceivable the property could be used as a private home for a single family or multigenerational living.

The building could also be split into self-contained units subject to gaining the relevant permissions.

There is no doubt the house offers great potential and will appeal to a variety of buyers.

The immediate area offers a good range of services including Spar store in neighbouring Wincham, a bustling high street in Knutsford with Aldi, Booths and Waitrose and a wide selection of restaurants, pubs and cafes as well as a high street bank, GP practice and Post Office.

For those seeking outdoor pursuits there is extensive walking throughout the local area, of note is the picturesque Pickmere Lake.
