Inside the million-pound home in a historic Greater Manchester village that was once a barn

A £1,200,000 home has come on the market in Greater Manchester which is unrecognizable from its former self. The characterful property in the historic Dunham Massey village was once a working barn on Black Moss Farm, which was built in 1917 as one of the original farmhouses on the Dunham Massey estate.

In recent years the barn has been converted into a beautiful four-bed family home as part of a redevelopment scheme where both the original main farmhouse and the barn became two separate properties.

The home’s semi-rural location means it benefits from countryside views and closeness to the National Trust’s Dunham Massey site as well as being within access to Altrincham Town Centre, Hale and Bowdon.

Accessed through a gated driveway that provides shared entry to the farmhouse, the barn is set well back from the road and sits on half an acre of vast land.

During the renovation the owners kept the home within the style of the barn retaining many of its original rural features including its high vaulted ceilings, exposed timber, brick and frames.

The home can be entered at both the front and at the back through the courtyard area. The main hub of the home is the ground floor open-plan living room which spans 800 square feet with bi-fold doors that open out onto the gardens, with gorgeous views of surrounding fields and countryside.
