High Ash Farm, which is located in an idyllic rural area and enjoys far reaching views, comprises of a substantial farmhouse, a detached stone barn (ripe for development subject to planning permission), a large open garage with an adjoining stable and land (overall) extending to approximately 3.334 acres (1.394 hectares). (NB Further acreage is available by separate negotiation). The farm house offers extensive accommodation with huge charm and many characterful features found throughout including exposed beams, oak doors, open fires etc. Unlike many other more typical farmhouses High Ash Farm is a particularly light and airy home with high ceilings and good sized windows. In brief the accommodation comprises; entrance porch, reception hallway, ground floor wc, lounge, dining room, large conservatory, breakfast kitchen, huge utility room and a large family room. Great potential exists within the farmhouse to create a self-contained granny-flat by utilizing the space within the utility, the family room and the adjoining former piggery. The barn is an attractive stone built detached building being almost 50ft in length with a loft area above and a beautiful and particularly secluded adjoining area of garden. The stone-faced open double garage provides useful covered parking to compliment the parking provided on the extensive gravel driveway. There is also an adjoining two storey stable. There are three areas of beautiful gardens, including a 'secret' cottage garden with fruit trees and bushes and a side garden from which one can enjoy the most wonderful views over the fields towards Shutlingsloe. The land around the farmhouse is fenced and gated, with water supply, a brick lined well and a well-stocked pond. One of the paddocks also accommodates a good number of solar panels, which supply electricity to the farmhouse and produce a small income from selling the surplus back to the national grid. Approached via a long private driveway, High Ash Farm enjoys a particularly secluded position in Rushton Spencer -a beautiful thriving village with a friendly spirit and an excellent local school. There are two local pubs and the area is surrounded by stunning countryside and has a local sailing lake just a few miles away at Rudyard. Convenient for Macclesfield, Congleton, Leek and the Peak District.
