Parkside Farm is a rare gem. Still retaining the original farmstead including all the outbuildings, It is situated in quite simply the most breath-taking setting at the end of a third of a mile tree lined driveway, sat centrally within lovely landscaped gardens, and boasting extensive adjoining paddocks and ancient woodland, which extend in all to about 35 acres. The original Victorian farmhouse has been extended and improved over the years but would still give scope, subject to planning permission, for a much larger re-development project, and the original L-shaped brick range offers the most fantastic opportunities for a whole variety of uses.
The gardens and grounds are notable with beautiful landscaped formal gardens on one side of the house with a large free standing garden room/conservatory on the main terrace, and a superb Koi carp pond. There is also an indoor swimming pool in one of the outbuildings immediately adjacent to the house.
Sproston is an attractive and popular rural hamlet on the outskirts of Holmes Chapel, boasting some beautiful surrounding countryside, and is very well placed within just a short driving distance of the M6 motorway, making access to the wider motorway network and Birmingham and Manchester very easy. Crewe railway station is only 15 minutes by car giving access to London in just over an hour and a half.
Directions from junction 18 of the M6 proceed towards Middlewich for about half a mile, turning left into Brereton Lane. The gates for Parkside Farm will be seen after about half a mile on the right hand side, opposite the turning on the left for Broad Lane.

Parkside Farm is approached through a pair of secure remote control entry gates with camera system leading onto a fantastic third of a mile tree lined driveway with close clipped lawn borders.
The driveway arrives at the main homestead and there is a large front courtyard separating the farm buildings and the house with a large planted central bed with trees. The Gardens are beautifully maintained and managed, and are a fantastic feature of the main house and include landscaped close clipped lawns, fabulous well-stocked shrub borders and rockeries with a number of mature trees, and a superb large koi carp pond in one corner.
There are several attractive domestic outbuildings including a detached conservatory /garden room with high vaulted ceiling and ceramic tiled floor enjoying a panoramic aspect over the gardens and the main barbeque terrace, and there is an Indoor Swimming Pool Building with WC, Shower Room and tiled pool deck with heated swimming pool. French doors lead out to the rear terrace from here and the room has a high vaulted ceiling with exposed trusses.
There is a large traditional brick range constructed from mellowed brick with a rosemary tiled roof. They incorporate various garaging and stores with electric roller doors on the ground floor and the former Shippon building is extremely wide. Both buildings have first floors and mezzanine areas and offer fantastic scope for a variety of uses, subject to planning permission, and these include conversion to ancillary or games/leisure facilities or perhaps total conversion to separate residential houses. There are several covered steel and timber framed open buildings to the rear of the brick out buildings.
It is quite rare today to find a farmhouse that retains its buildings and land, and Parkside Farm provides a fantastic opportunity to create ones own small country estate. The house is central within its land with substantial open paddocks and fields, several ponds and a four acre wood known as Rookery Wood.
