Property description

A traditional farmstead offering outstanding development opportunities


Crewe 4.5 miles, Nantwich 8 miles, Stoke-on-Trent 13 miles

Snape Farm is in a delightful rural location and yet very well placed for access to the motorway network (M6) and the mainline rail network (Crewe station).

Crewe and the neighbouring market town of Nantwich provide an excellent range of daily services, including primary and secondary schooling and there are high quality leisure facilities in the area including a hotel and golf on the European tour standard course at the nearby Wychwood Park.

It is also close to some of the most attractive countryside in the region which spans the south Cheshire, Staffordshire and Shropshire borders.


Snape Farm was formerly part of the substantial landholdings belonging to the Delves Broughton family. On a plaque on the gable end of the farmhouse are the initials H.D.B and the date 1893.

The farmstead occupies a slightly elevated site from which there are attractive far reaching views over the adjoining countryside. It divides naturally into 3 lots, each with road frontage, as follows.

LOT 1 – SNAPE FARMHOUSE (About 1.36 acres)

A handsome brick and slate farmhouse in extensive gardens and grounds incorporating a large pond. The house requires repair and full modernisation, but offers an excellent opportunity to create an impressive family house.

On the ground floor is an entrance hall with stairs to the first floor and access to the cellar, two sitting rooms, a dining room, kitchen and utility room. A lobby links the main accommodation to a workshop, boiler room, store and a WC.

On the first floor, which is accessed via two staircases, are five bedrooms and the bathrooms, two of which are ensuite.

Outside are brick built domestic outbuildings and a dilapidated timber shed.


The site immediately to the west of the farmhouse was used during World War II for the housing of prisoners of war in a series of single storey structures.

Planning consent has been granted for the development of up to 5 single story dwellings (Application No 16/5780N - date 18/1/17).


Planning consent (Application No 17/0875N - date 27/4/17) has been granted for the conversion of the impressive traditional range to provide five, three bedroom, two storey units and three, four bedroom units (one detached). Each unit will have a private garden and parking.

In addition, there are several more modern buildings on the site including a steel framed cattle yard, a straw barn, a machinery shed, a storage barn and a silage clamp.

The site has an independent access from Snape Lane.

Acreage: 7.84 Acres
