A FOUR-BED barn conversion which is believed to date back to the 1600s has been put up for sale.

The property is set in around 1.9 acres of land off Welsh Row in Nether Alderley, a semi-rural location on the outskirts of Alderley Edge village.

Marketed by Gascoigne Halman at £1.5 million, the house comes with a double garage and detached shippon, which provides two self-contained studio dwellings.

Originally a farmhouse and detached barn, the buildings were converted into one large home in the late 1980s.

The property listing on Rightmove states: "Ideal for those that appreciate country living, the sale of The Old Barn provides potential purchasers with the opportunity to acquire a stunning semi-rural residence set at the heart of approximately 1.9 acres, surrounded by beautiful countryside, yet still within close proximity of Alderley Edge village.

"The property has been sympathetically converted with the building's origins providing many original features throughout.

"Of particular note is the main lounge with its double-height vaulted ceiling with exposed king post truss and purlins providing a splendid principal reception space."

On entering the property, visitors are welcomed into a 'spacious' reception hall, which has a Yorkstone floor and vaulted ceiling and connects to the various areas of the ground floor. 

From the all and the aforementioned lounge, is a dining room accessible through double doors, while a family room offers a third reception area.

The kitchen is linked to a dining area with picturesque garden views via a utility room. There is also a toilet downstairs.

Upstairs, from a galleried landing accessed via the lounge, visitors will find the master bedroom, which also has a vaulted ceiling, a dressing area and an en suite.

A second double bedroom can also be accessed from the landing area and also comes with an en suite.

Via a spiral staircase in the kitchen, two further double bedrooms can be accessed, along with another bathroom.

Outside, the property features a large patio area intersected by a stream and beyond which are expansive gardens, and a paddock area.

There is a cobbled driveaway, which leads to ample parking alongside the detached garage.
