Leaders City centre and Hoole are proud to bring to the market this three bedroom barn conversion in the rural setting of Chorlton-By-Backford.

Internally, the property comprises to the ground floor: hallway with WC, living room with double French doors to the garden, dining room and breakfast kitchen and to the first floor, three double bedrooms (two with built-in wardrobes) and family bathroom with four-piece suite.
