A 'UNIQUE' American-style ranch has hit the market.

A swimming pool, gym, and five bedrooms are just some of the features of the latest property being marketed by estate agent Gascoigne Halman.

Priced at £1,350,000, the house known as Timbers is located on a quiet country lane in Manley, a village halfway between Northwich and Chester.

Robert Reed, a manager at Gascoigne Halman, said: “It is really exciting to start the new year with instructions to offer for sale this wonderful, unique and totally individual detached residence, that is set in grounds of three acres and enjoys a location difficult to better.

“Those who have followed property transactions and development in Manley in the last five years will have noted that the area now boasts some of the most tasteful and high-quality houses in the wider area.

"This, combined with the natural rural beauty of the locality, has made the village one of the go-to areas for discerning property buyers seeking a long-term family home.”

Mr Reed continues, saying that the house itself, measuring 5,990 square feet, has a "resemblance to Scandinavian architecture" whilst also reminding him of an 'American parkland ranch'.

The detached property sits on a three-acre site and includes five bedrooms, three of which have en suites, as well as a family bathroom.

There are also four reception rooms, a gym, a breakfast kitchen and 'numerous quality features' including a bespoke staircase.

Perhaps the standout feature however is the indoor heated swimming pool, complete with a changing room and sauna.

If this wasn’t enough, outside you will find an open-fronted garden room featuring a hot tub, TV connection and a seating area.

The grounds, comprised of gardens and paddocks, also have the potential for those looking to keep horses, ponies or donkeys.

Mr Reed added: “This is a house that can be immediately moved into and enjoyed.

“There is also limitless potential for a future owner to impose their own ideas and design concepts into the house.

“Those with larger budgets may, subject to planning seek to extend further and the layout could be adapted in a number of different ways to suit individual requirements.”
