Top Farm House is understood to originally date back to 1918 but the present owners have undertaken a renovation project on the original property, together with a substantial extension. The extensive family accommodation is presented to a very high standard and an internal inspection is absolutely essential, in order to fully appreciate the quality of fixtures and fitting throughout. There are certainly many features of note, including the magnificent 34 ft lounge, a separate 19 ft dining room which opens onto the decking area and the very spacious kitchen/breakfast room with its custom built units. On the first floor, a delightful galleried landing features a large opening looking over the dining room and the master bedroom suite has a dressing room, bathroom with shower and extensive views from the bedroom over the garden and farmland beyond. The flexibility of the accommodation is further enhanced by the additional bedroom and en-suite over the garage, which is self contained having its own entrance door. Externally, the property is well set back from Higher Lane, being approached through electronically operated entrance gates over a long driveway, which gives access to a courtyard area in front of the house. A further benefit is provided by the fact that the property has vehicular access over an additional driveway at the side, thereby providing a further parking area at the rear. The grounds themselves adjoins farmland to the rear and side and have been landscaped. A viewing is essential to appreciate this magnificent country residence.
Lymm Village Centre is about 1 3/4 miles distance which offers a selection of local shopping facilities including a Somerfield supermarket, together with various restaurants, banks, building societies and a Post Office. A local open market is held once a week on a Thursday. For more comprehensive shopping needs the larger commercial centres of Altrincham, Warrington and Manchester are readily accessible together with access to the M6/M56/M60 motorway network and subsequently to Manchester International Airport.
From our office in the Lymm Village Centre proceed up past the Sandstone Cross bearing immediately right into Rectory Lane. Continue up Rectory Lane to the junction with the A56 and turn left onto Higher Lane. Continue along Higher Lane proceeding out of Lymm through the de-restriction signs and Top Farm House will be found on the right hand side just before reaching the traffic lights at Broomedge, virtually opposite the Jolly Thresher Public House.
