Hobcroft Farm represents ideal opportunity for purchasers to own a private equestrian centre in a semi rural yet convenient position almost equidistant between Knutsford and Wilmslow, close to Mobberley Village. There is a detached two bedroom bungalow within its own gated gardens which are of a good size then immediately behind a courtyard with brick stables and barn as described in greater detail below. Good quality level fields surround the property and have lane access and water, enclosed by post and rail fencing and mature trees which extends to approximately 12 acres; absolutely ideal for those with equine interests. Furthermore, we believe the part open detached barn could be developed into an all weather ménage with the correct surfacing all accessed by a separate gated driveway with ample hard standing for horse boxes.
Within a short distance of Mobberley village which is one of the most sought after semi-rural villages, catering for day to day requirements and well located for easy access into Knutsford and Wilmslow town centres. Mobberley itself has its own rail station, providing frequent commuter service to Manchester, together with a number of well known public houses. The nearby town centres however cater for more comprehensive shopping facilities and include a number of larger retail outlets. Excellent educational facilities cater for children of most ages in both the State and Private Sector. For sports person both towns host a Leisure Centre, coupled with private sporting clubs and notable golf courses within easy reach. There are excellent links to the nearby Northwest motorway network and Manchester International Airport.
From the roundabout in Canute Square travel along King Edward Road (A50) turning left at the traffic lights passing the rail station. Continue through the next lights and turn left again up Hollow Lane onto Mobberley Road and leave the town in the direction of Mobberley Village. Just prior to reaching the village centre turn left onto Smith Lane signed for the station. Continue and after about 1/3rd of a mile bear right onto Slade Lane over the humpback bridge and to its end and turn right onto Hobcroft Lane. After passing the farm on your right, Hobcroft Farm will then be seen on your right, in all about 3.5 miles.
