Onecote, Onecote Leek, Staffordshire

Three Bedroom Farmhouse

Property ID: 30911193


Manor Farm comprises a ring-fenced stock farm which was previously used as a dairy farm comprising a stone and tiled dwelling house, together with a good range of adjoining traditional stone and tiled farm buildings in a courtyard setting which maybe suitable for alternative uses subject to necessary planning consents. There are also a comprehensive range of modern portal framed buildings.
The grassland associated with the property lies within a ring fence, the whole of which is considered to be in good heart with a good proportion being suitable for mowing purposes as well as grazing and extends to a total of 174.11 acres or thereabouts.
The property enjoys a pleasant country location within the Peak District National Park and is well worthy of an early inspection to appreciate the property that is on offer.


The property is approached by means of a hardcore driveway from Blakelow Road, over which, we understand other properties also have rights of way. We understand that the latter part of the driveway is in the ownership of the farm, although a neighbouring farm continues to enjoy a right of way over this part of the roadway. The property lies 4.4 miles from the market town of Leek with a wide range of facilities, 12.1 miles from Buxton and 15.7 miles for Ashbourne.


If travelling from Leek, take the A53 towards Buxton and after approximately 0.5 miles take the right hand turn onto Thorncliffe Road, after 0.7 miles turn right and immediately left onto Easing Lane and follow this road to the top of the hill. At the junction turn left and after a short distance turn right onto the private roadway that leads to Manor Farm, as indicated by our For Sale' boards and the attached plan.


The property comprises a stone and tiled dwelling house, together with a substantial range of traditional stone and tiled adjoining farm buildings with the potential for other uses, subject to the necessary planning consents and a comprehensive range of modern portal framed buildings used by the dairy and beef herd. The land associated with the property lies within a ring fence and extends to to a total of 174.11 acres or thereabouts.
