Historic Farmhouse Restored In Cheshire

The Duchy of Lancaster has recently completed the refurbishment of a Grade II listed farmhouse on the outskirts of Barthomley on the Cheshire Survey.

The early 17th century farmhouse is a black and white timber framed property which has been sympathetically extended and updated over the years to provide a large two-storey family home. Great care has been taken to retain many of the original features including exposed beams, carved barge boards and finials and the original inglenook fireplace in the interior.

The 3-bedroomed farmhouse has now been sensitively updated and refurbished to provide all of the comfort and convenience of modern family living.

Commenting on the finished project, the Duchy’s Senior Rural Surveyor for the Cheshire Survey Laura Airton said: “Mill Farmhouse is a beautiful heritage property in an attractive rural location. Close to the popular village of Barthomley and within a few minutes’ drive of both the M6 motorway and the larger Crewe conurbation it is an ideal family home for anyone looking to combine country living with easy access to the larger town.

“In refurbishing the property we wanted to retain as much of the property’s character and history as possible. The net result has been that we have brought a historic farmhouse back to life and created a comfortable and appealing family home for further generations to enjoy.”

Mill Farmhouse, which was still operating as a working farm until 2013, is expected to be available to rent by the end of September 2020.

The Duchy of Lancaster’s Crewe estate covers 1,522 hectares of mainly rural lands to the east of Crewe. The estate is centred on the historic properties of Crewe Hall and Crewe Hall Farm and includes a residential portfolio of 66 rural cottages and farmhouses.
