South Tunley Farm is part of a small, historically important grouping of farmsteads on the north side of Tunley Lane in the scattered, extensive rural settlement of Wrightington.

It occupies an elevated site standing above the meandering Tunley Brook, conveniently placed for comprehensive village amenities and easy access on to the M6 at Junction 27.

It is offered in several lots comprising the 17th century Grade II Listed farmhouse, substantial stone-built barn which has planning permission for conversion into two dwellings and a stone-built stable which has permission for conversion into a single dwelling.

In the main farmhouse, the accommodation comprises an entrance porch, hall, morning room, lounge, side hall, kitchen, dining room and utility room.

Upstairs, there are five bedrooms and two bathrooms

Outside, the front garden is surrounded by substantial stone screen wall featuring impressive entrance gate. There is a large side garden laid to lawn, while the extensive rear garden has timber cabins, greenhouse and brick-built privy.

Overall, there are extensive domesticated garden areas together with large forecourt with land extending south across Tunley Brook and providing a total holding of 1.216 acres or thereabouts.

The surrounding land has been divided into parcels to support and provide amenity to the residences and possibly also be occupied as separate pony paddocks.

The premises provide an opportunity rarely available to embark upon the exciting project of renovating a locally and historically significant residence retaining many original features and fittings.

The barns, which are of high-quality construction have walls of substantial graded stone and stone slate roofs befitting their stature and association with a manor house.

Both provide the opportunity to create most attractive and spacious residences which will form a desirable mews complex all with generous garden/amenity areas with the additional opportunity of acquiring adjoining paddocks and acreage.
