A substantial, detached family home with easy potential to become 4/5 bedrooms. Located in a highly desirable area amongst substantial grounds, with a further detached large barn, ample parking within a gated setting and excellent potential development scope. This property is an outstanding and rare opportunity, superbly positioned on the verge of open countryside.

Jericho Farm, Medlock Road, Woodhouses, Manchester is a significant property with a further large detached barn of around 3,000sqft itself. Set around an extensive area of parking / hardstanding, the site itself amounts to approximately 1.2 hectares and could potentially offer great scope for further development, subject to necessary consents of course.

Already providing substantial living accommodation, the property has been thoughtfully extended and is well presented, offering good living space with 4/5 bedroom scope. Gardens and grounds encircle the property, which enjoys a comparatively private and tucked-away setting as a result. In addition to the extensive outside space which could ideally suit a variety of uses, within the grounds too are lovely areas of planting, wooded aspects and a section of brook, set below to the north of the curtilage.

Viewing here is certainly highly recommended, to fully appreciate the scale of the site on offer, as well of course as the great standard of accommodation provided and potential scope either for further development, or suitability for a range of purposes accordingly.

Internally, this property briefly comprises: Entrance Hall, Lounge / Dining Room, Dining Kitchen, Hallway, Utility, Master Bedroom with Dressing Room and En-Suite Bathroom, Bedroom 2 with Jack & Jill En-Suite Wet Room. Off the first floor Landing are Bedroom 3, Shower Room and the Galleried Landing which could easily offer scope to become Bedrooms 4 & 5.

Externally, there is the large detached barn, amounting to some 3,000sqft approximately. Gardens and grounds surround the living accommodation, including an unusually generous area of parking / hardstanding. Further grounds included mature wooded aspects and planted areas, with the whole site being accessed through an electric gated entrance from Medlock Road itself.

Making the most of its comparatively tucked-away gated setting, the property sits on the verge of nearby open countryside, affording easy access to lovely surroundings. Within walking distance, Woodhouses Sports Club, Brookdale Golf Club and other local destinations provide options for entertainment, while Daisy Nook Country Park and Garden Centre is just over a mile away. Manchester City Centre itself is easily reached too, for the comprehensive amenities that this major hub has to offer for leisure, entertainment and commerce too.
