A large, brick built barn in the Cheshire village of Hulme Walfield, which offers great opportunities for development. Currently a five bedroom property with offices, workshops and a squash court, it has planning permission for conversion into two houses and for two new builds within the grounds
A 100ft long, brick built barn which has been partly renovated and is set in open countryside in the small village of Hulme Walfield, near Congleton in Cheshire.
The barn dates back to at least the 19th century and boasts beautiful oak beams with original builder's markings. It was converted into a Country Club with three squash courts and a further extension added in the early 1980's.
The current owners bought the building in 1997 and converted two of the squash courts into a light industrial unit. They developed the upper floor and extension into a spacious family home which consists of an entrance hall, utility room, kitchen / dining room, media lounge, 40 ft lounge, two offices, five bedrooms and three bathrooms. One squash court has been left for recreational purposes.
The barn has full planning permission to convert into 2 x four bedroomed residential dwellings with 2 x three bedroomed houses on the site.
