It may look like it belongs to a Duke or Duchess but this country mansion is yours to buy.

On the market with Hunters, this Grade II Listed farmhouse is a home to be truly proud of.

It's also a chance to buy your very own piece of history, as while it might not have royal connections, the property does have links to the nobility.

Situated in Wirral, Hillbark Farm was built in 1875 by John Douglas, an architect who designed over 500 properties across Cheshire including Abbeystead House for the fourth Earl of Sefton and the neo-Elizabethan Shotwick House at Shotwick Park.

The house sits at the head of a 300 metre private lane and is only a five minute drive from Heswall and West Kirby.

If that wasn't impressive enough, the five-bedroom house comes with its own stable and paddock - all for £950,000.

With almost an acre of land, the farmhouse is set within beautiful gardens of a generous size.

Those with equestrian interests will benefit from the paddock which is accessed via the main gardens.

It consists of two stables and a tack room. The farmhouse also has parking that can hold several vehicles.

In recent years, the home has undergone major refurbishment, adding modern amenities while retaining its traditional charm.

The exposed brick kitchen is a perfect example of this as it preserves the farmhouse feel along with new high quality units finished in a neutral tone.

Adjoining this is a modern dining room fitted with skylights.

The living room still holds its original charm as it features an inglenook fireplace and further exposed brick walls.

The ground floor also benefits from a drawing room, home office, library with window seat, separate utility room and pantry.

An additional five bedrooms and two bathrooms makes the space perfect for those with a family.

Hunters note that one of the bedrooms sits in what was previously the haybarn.

For anyone looking for a project or potential investment, permission has been granted to convert this bedroom into a self contained annexe comprising living room, bedroom, shower room and kitchenette.
