Brook Farm is a wonderful opportunity to purchase over 16,000 sq. ft. of accommodation, which includes two properties, both indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a tennis court and gymnasium.


Brook Farm is a wonderful opportunity to purchase over 16,000 sq. ft. of accommodation, which includes two properties: a spectacular L shaped barn conversion (The Barn) and a stunning Grade II listed farmhouse (Brook Farmhouse), indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a tennis court, a gym, landscaped gardens, a paddock and more. A perfect property for purchasers with a large family, multiple generational living together on the same grounds or potentially even alternative uses (subject to planning permission).


The Barn was originally converted in 2002/3 and has since gone through several significant refurbishments, resulting in the high specification and exemplary finish now on offer. With
just under 11,000 sq. ft. of incredibly well thought out, light and spacious accommodation this property is truly spectacular.
Off the main reception hall to the right is a snug that leads through to an impressive bespoke kitchen designed by Steve Farum, with two Agas, a built in fridge and freezer, microwave,
coffee machine (all Miele appliances) and a raised breakfast island. Beyond is a second/ preparation kitchen and utility room with an ice cream maker.

To the left of the main reception hall is a playroom, downstairs WC, cloakroom and the fabulous dining room with double doors leading to the formal drawing room.

On the first floor are a total of five bedrooms. All bedrooms are serviced by wall mounted air conditioning units. To the right of the upstairs landing there is an office with lovely countryside views and four bedrooms; two of which have en suite facilities and the remaining two bedrooms are serviced by a substantial family bathroom with a main bath, shower, WC and basin.

The principal bedroom suite located to the left of the upstairs landing is superb, with a large main bedroom, two dressing rooms, an en suite bathroom and a door that leads to a fabulous Swimex first floor swimming pool. Adjacent is a super and well-equipped gymnasium that also benefits from its own separate staircase access.

Adjoining the gym is an incredible children’s play room/games room, extending to 33’ x 19’11 that could be adapted in a number of different ways.

On the ground floor is a further gym/training studio. The property benefits from a Crestron sound system which controls televisions, electric blinds, underfloor heating, air conditioning in the bedrooms and both ground-heat source and air-heat source heating.


Brook Farmhouse is an attractive and characterful Grade II period family home that is entirely separate to The Barn and offers over 4,700 sq. ft. of accommodation.

The Farmhouse originally dates from the late sixteenth/early seventeenth century and is understood to have been extended in 1832, with an entrance porch having since been added around 20 years ago.

The house has a wonderful feel with so much charm, exposed timbers and spacious well laid out accommodation.
Brook Farmhouse includes a country style kitchen with an electric Aga, utility room and boiler room (oil central heating). There is a formal dining room with feature fireplace, cloakroom,
sitting room and the main drawing room together with a study/library.

On the first floor is the principal bedroom with its own bathroom. In addition, there are a further three bedrooms and a family bathroom together with a separate bathroom.

Externally beautifully manicured gardens surround the property with a range of formal lawns, gardens, large planted borders and terrace areas.


Brook Farm is situated in an extremely private position off the A533, approximately two and a half miles to the east of Sandbach.

The Barn and Brook Farmhouse are accessed from a private driveway, secured by electrically operated gates. Once through the gates, you descend down into a valley where both
properties are situated in a beautiful rural position, with a brook located on the north-western boundary.

Completely private and unseen from the A533, the properties face each other with the outdoor swimming pool, a spectacular courtyard with outdoor entertaining area and the extended driveway separating them. The driveway then leads to a triple garage.

The outdoor facilities for the properties are excellent with a fabulous outdoor heated pool and fountain, all within its own private courtyard.

To the rear of Brook Farmhouse is an outdoor flood lit tennis court with a bespoke rubberised surface. Beside is a substantial children’s play area and animal hutches.

Brook Farm benefits from an extensive garden irrigation system, with underground ring mains. There is also the added benefit of an extensive stand-by generator with the facility of
heating the main driveway. The Barn also benefits from a ground source heat pump


Sandbach is a thriving historic South Cheshire market town offering a range of specialist shops, including bakers, grocers, delis, restaurants, boutiques, coffee shops, florists, fashion shops and a Waitrose etc. On Thursdays a popular traditional Elizabethan street market extends into the Town Hall. There is also a Farmers Market every second Saturday of the month on the town’s cobbled square.

The area benefits from excellent travel and commuting links, with quick access to the M6 Motorway (Junction 17), nearby Sandbach railway station provides good links to Manchester, frequent trains from Crewe mainline railway station also link Cheshire to London in around two hours and Manchester International Airport is located within a circa 40 minute drive.
An ideal choice for the busy commuter.

Local primary and high schools are extremely popular; many families move into the area with this in mind.
