Duchy announces final Meremoor Farm letting

The Duchy of Lancaster has let the final cottage at Meremoor Farm Barns near Weston in Crewe, just over six months after the development was completed.

The final letting was completed on June 3 by managing agent Smiths Gore and fills the last of the four properties that were available on the site.

The development, which was completed in November 2012, saw owners the Duchy of Lancaster invest over £900,000 in the renovation of the barns into four new cottages, after planning consent was granted in 2010.

Situated about a mile north-east of the Cheshire village of Weston near Crewe, the cottages were built from the existing traditional brick-built barns on the site.

Work took six months and saw the barns converted into a range of cottages named Cedar, Palm, Acacia and Olive.

Paul Clarke, CEO of the Duchy of Lancaster said: “When the opportunity to renovate the site came along, we decided that we wanted to create four high-quality dwellings that matched the rural feel of the area.

“We were really impressed with the quality of the cottages once they were completed and I think those who viewed them were too, which is reflected in how quickly they’ve all been let.

“The transformation has been fantastic and we’re pleased we have managed to maintain the traditional and rural appearance of the site.”
