  • Bedrooms: 3
Morris Farm comprises of a farm house along with a barn having further potential, all set in 49 acres of grassland. The property is set well back from the public highway in a wonderful position within an area of open countryside/green belt between Bickershaw and Abram.

The current owners have carried out a lot of work to the subject property in terms of modernisation. They have also improved the grassland which is now well suited to the mixture of agriculture and equestrianism.

Morris Farm is approached via an unmade track running from the North. Its access is a right of access for the first/third section and is shared with a public footpath, and other vehicular rights although the vehicular rights do not run right into the yard.

The house itself is of rendered construction under a tarn roof and comprises an entrance vestibule off which can be found a living room and sitting room. The living room is finished with traditional stone flooring along with a log burner set within a feature fire place. The log burner is connected to the back boiler, also utilised for hot water and heating during the winter months. In addition there is an electric boiler for water heating during the summer months. The vestibule also gives way to the sitting room with stone feature fire place and hearth with open fire.

To the rear of the house can be found a pantry/utility, cloak room with WC and basin (shower tray and pipework already installed) and a back kitchen with hob, basin and units as well as access to the rear of the property.

There is a large farm house kitchen, which appears to be an extension of the original build. It is a working kitchen with continued original stone floors and a range of newly fitted kitchen units and associated appliances. Separate access from here leads directly onto the yard.

The first floor has lovely traditional high-top ceilings. Here, can be found three double bedrooms and a family bathroom with suite comprises free standing floor foot bath, steam integOverall, the house provides just in excess of 1780 square feet of accommodation.

Externally the property benefits from two yard areas, both of which have the benefit of stabling. Please note that the stables do not have planning permission. The vendor installed them on the basis that they are temporary and on skids. It is believed that formal planning would need to be investigated by the purchaser for these stables to remain insitu. More details are contained further on.

The traditional brick barn contains wonderful timber trusses. The recently clad roof assists in preventing the weather entering and internally there are five loose boxes, although this could easily be converted into seven. We believe the barn may have potential for conversion subject to gaining any necessary planning consent or Part Q Committed Development Consent.

The other temporary stables contain six blocks, each with three stables and another block with one stable. The second hardcore yard area has the benefit of a further eleven stables of a temporary nature.

There is a large pond which is contains plenty of mature fish—perfect for a keen fisherman!

The grassland is well maintained pasture and meadowland, which according to the Rural Payments Agency BPS Scheme totals 45.27 acres (18.32 hectares) of registered farmable land. There is easy access to each field with tracks installed, troughs to several areas and useful fencing. The land has been exceptionally well managed. The yard has previously had liveries who used the back of Leigh Lane to enjoy hours of off road hacking, however we do not believe this is an official bridle way.
