Nestled in a private, rural setting, surrounded by fantastic open countryside and breathtaking views is Lower Dayeye Farm, a stunning three-bedroomed period farmhouse that has substantial outbuildings ideal for converting into additional luxurious accommodation. With the added benefit of approximately four and a half acres of land, this beautiful property also has excellent equestrian opportunities. Although off the beaten track, the location is within easy access of a variety of amenities and is well placed for major transport links including the M6, M61, and M65 motorway networks, making it ideal for commuting across the North-West. Only by internal inspection will buyers fully appreciate the size, setting and tremendous potential of this superb residence and as such, an early viewing is strongly recommended to avoid disappointment.
The well-proportioned and versatile accommodation comprises a reception lobby, principal lounge, sitting room/study, formal dining room, fitted kitchen, utility room/WC, three good-sized bedrooms (the master with fitted wardrobes) plus a luxury four-piece family bathroom. The substantial outbuildings, which are adjacent to the main farmhouse, comprise two large barns, a workshop and a large store, which could be converted to additional luxury accommodation if required. A separate laundry/WC completes the outbuildings. A private driveway leads to a pebbled courtyard that offers extensive parking for several vehicles while formal garden areas comprise areas laid to lawn, stone flagged patios and a hot tub, all taking in awe-inspiring views over the surrounding countryside. In addition to this, there are approximately four and half acres of land that offer excellent equestrian opportunities for the horse-lover.
