Historical Houses Cheshire: Spotlight on Lymm Part VI

Wildersmoor Hall Farm

Located towards the north of Deansgreen, Lymm, the Grade II listed Wildersmoor Hall Farm resides just off Higher Lane. Dated approximately to the mid-1800s, Wildersmoor Hall Farm was originally comprised a timber-framed building. However, the historical country mansion near Deansgreen has since been largely reconstituted with brickwork and some sandstone. Today, the property consists of a single storey and three rooms on the attic. Described as “beautifully presented throughout,” Wildersmoor Hall Farm contains the following:

  • Entrance hall
  • Lounge
  • Dining room
  • Separate kitchen
  • Second sitting room
  • Downstairs WC
  • Spacious utility room
  • Glass conservatory

The first floor consists of four bedrooms and a family bathroom. However, what makes the property especially stand out are the stunning views and the plush surrounding gardens. Furthermore, the property’s ample driveway leads to two double garages, with remotely operated doors. Additionally, the property offers a rustic and quaint outbuilding and the possibility of renting five acres of land. Thus, Wildersmoor Hall Farm offers an unmissable opportunity for tenants rearing horses, or interested in farming.

In 2015, plans were unveiled for the construction of a solar farm, on four fields which form part of the Wildersmoor Hall Farm estate, just north of Deansgreen, Lymm. Plans were proposed by Wiltshire-based energy company Good Energy, who operate six solar farms across the United Kingdom. Initial proposals for the solar farm detailed that the intended 33-acre site would be capable of producing 5 mw, capable of producing enough electricity to supply 1,300 average homes. As part of the original unveiling, project developer Felicity Sargent insisted that, “the 33-acre site extends across four fields and is well-screened by existing hedgerows in and around the farm.” She also added, “the proposed solar farm is being designed to allow sheep to graze between and around the panels, so enabling the landowner to continue his family’s farming tradition while diversifying into renewable electricity generation.”
