THIS large re-modelled Georgian farmhouse in Acton Bridge is our Guardian Property of the Week.

The six-bedroom home is based on Hill Top Road near to Acton Bridge Station and has breathtaking views out over the countryside.

Northwich Guardian:

It is listed on the market by Storeys, based in Davenham, with a guide price of £1 million.

The property is set in just short of half an acre of land and is believed to date from 1729.

On arrival, the vast square reception hall makes quite the statement and features a log burner and stone flooring. Leading to the right of the hall you will find a good-sized study with a log burner and fitted storage and a large reception room with another log burner and patio doors leading to the large Indian stone patio.

Northwich Guardian:

Leading off to the left from the hall is an archway through to the open dining room and to the heart of this family home – the open plan and generously proportioned dining kitchen offering the opportunity for some al fresco entertaining with French doors leading outside. The farmhouse style kitchen has oak work surfaces, Belfast sink, and an AGA.

To the first floor the galleried landing affords very special views of open countryside. On this level are four double bedrooms (two of which have en-suites) and a family bathroom. To the second floor are a further two double bedrooms and shower room.

Northwich Guardian:

The property sits on a large plot and the owners have recently installed a new resin driveway which wraps around the front, side and leads towards the rear garden.

There is a very large newly laid and elevated Indian sandstone patio with tiered steps leading to the large lawned rear garden.

Northwich Guardian:

A raised decking area connects the main living room and dining kitchen.

The owners have meticulously planted and landscaped the rear garden and it now has an array of plants, trees and shrubs and a Pergola seating area offering splendid views which gets the sun all day.

Behind the property is prime agricultural land and the use for this alternates from year to year.
