THIS beautiful 18th century period property is bursting with character and original features.

A rare opportunity has arose to own a delightful hall built in the 1700s on 26 acres of picturesque woodland.

In brief, the accommodation comprises an entrance hall, three reception rooms, kitchen, utility room, downstairs toilet, two bathrooms and three bedrooms.

Externally there is a larger than average garden complete with additional plot of land giving access to 26 acres of woodland, divided exclusively between the properties at Atherton Hall.
