Characterful, historic features include a cellar, larder and outbuildings. There's even land outdoors for sale separately.

Holden and Prescott had this to say about the home: "Pyegreave Farm is a historic Grade II listed property dating back to around 1490 and is the site of the first recorded settlement in Langley and reputedly the oldest enclosed farm in this part of Cheshire.

"Tucked away on the slopes of Tegg's Nose on the edge of the Peak District, it's only minutes away from the sought-after villages of Langley and Sutton and Macclesfield, where you'll find all the amenities of a thriving market town.

"As mentioned, the original farmhouse is Grade II-listed and has an abundance of original features, such as exquisite oak beams, vaulted ceilings, and exposed timber work, which present a captivating and characterful aesthetic.

"As you step inside, you'll be greeted by the charming and unique interior, which reflects the integrity and rich history of this wonderful property.

"While the farmhouse is in need of a degree of updating, this presents an exciting opportunity for you to put your own stamp on this historical abode and create a space that truly reflects your style and preferences.

There is also the opportunity to buy land near the home. (Image - Holden & Prescott)
