Limes Farmhouse is an attractive 5-bedroom period farmhouse located between Balterley Green and Barthomley near Crewe, Cheshire. Barthomley is a lovely picturesque village with a local public house, The White Lion Inn. The property is a former working farmhouse, part of the Duchy of Lancaster’s Crewe Estate, and is in a quiet rural position surrounded by beautiful countryside yet only five mins from the M6 J16 providing an excellent location for commuting by road. Crewe Railway Station is only 6.5miles away providing a direct line to many major Cities including London Euston being within approximately 1hr20mins travel time.

Limes Farmhouse is also well situated for those with an interest in equestrian and country pursuits. There are a number of equestrian venues locally including Balterley Stables, Alsager Equestrian Centre, Southview Training Centre, Somerford Park Farm and Kelsall Hill Equestrian Centre, the latter two being approx. 12miles and 20miles respectively.

The property was refurbished in 2016 to the Duchy’s Design Guide and Quality Specification, providing a beautifully presented family home finished to a high standard. The farmhouse has both a main front door into a reception hall with traditional tiled floor and a back door leading off an enclosed courtyard which offers ample parking and into a large hallway with utility room and cloakroom to one side with doors onto the large living room.

The kitchen is finished to a high standard with an attractive original quarry tiled floor and a range of fitted base and wall mounted units with granite worktops and matching central island providing excellent storage and usability. There is a large electric range cooker with dual oven and six ring induction hob and extractor above along with an integrated dishwasher and fridge freezer. The kitchen has a window above the sink overlooking the garden and countryside beyond, skylights and bi-folding doors open out onto a rear patio area and flood the kitchen with natural light.

The kitchen is open to a large living room and dining area which has a feature wood burning stove. There is an office and reception hall located to one end of the property off the living room and there is a further sung with log burning stove off the main front entrance hallway.

On the first floor there is a long landing with access to the four double bedrooms and the family bathroom, complete with two sinks, standalone shower and bath. The master bedroom suite is on the second-floor level benefitting from an en-suite shower and dressing room.

The property is approached along a private drive, shared only with the neighbouring farm and has its own large parking and turning sweep to the rear of the property within a courtyard of traditional brick outbuildings. The property has a well-kept garden mainly laid to lawn with hedge and fence boundary. A patio area is off the kitchen via bi-folding doors and a brick wall and fenced courtyard provides access to the back of the house. A useful brick outbuilding could be used as a log store.
