Davises Farm is located in an elevated position in the hills just north of Bury town centre with far reaching views towards the south west towards the locally famous Holcombe Hill. The farm comprises of the original farmhouse dating, we are reliably informed, from the latter part of the 16th century, the barn and the adjacent land which currently is occupied by our vendors storage buildings. The history of the barn is somewhat unusual, it was used, as the name suggests, as the barn for the farm but more recently it has been used to manufacture trophies and even as a photographic studio. Our vendors purchased in 2003 and they dedicated much of their lives into the restoration of the farm, but more specifically they transformed the barn into what we see today. Every inch of the building was either restored or taken apart and rebuilt using natural stone to match the surroundings. The finished result is a real credit to the owners and their eye for detail and sheer high standard of workmanship is to be commended. The barn is now being offered for sale as our vendors intend to downsize. The property is connected to mains electricity, water and gas and there is a septic tank drainage system. Accessed from Halsall Close up a single track (the Sat Nav directions will confuse you), the property not only has a rural aspect but is within 1 mile of Bury town centre and a similar distance from the nearest motorway junction providing easy access to all NW towns and cities. There is a large sweeping cobbled driveway leading onto the gravel forecourt and onto the detached garage, built to match the property. The garage is currently being used as a double storey summerhouse/office with patio doors and woodburning stove!, however a conversion back to a standard garage is very simple. The main barn is beautifully presented with a magnificent reception hallway and double galleried landing with bespoke staircase. There are three double bedrooms all with fitted furniture. The main bedroom has access to the second floor dressing room and snug. From the first floor landing there is a staircase leading up to the entertaining room. The accommodation therefore is somewhat adaptable to suit a number of different connotations.

Originally constructed as a garage to precise standards to exactly replicate the main house. Initially it was to house our vendors classic car, with an office space above but now it is the formal residence of a cat who lives, one might say, the life of Riley. The building is complete with patio windows and woodburning stove and could easily be transformed into a 'granny annex' if required. There is a staircase leading up to the bedroom area (aforementioned feline in mind) or office with inset ceiling lighting and circular windows.
From Mather Road the property is entered via a sweeping cobbled driveway with planted borders and seating area which leads onto the shingle driveway which forms much of the outside area. Indian Stone paths lead round to the rear of the property with raised patio and seating areas
