Cheshire farm destroyed by massive fire goes up for sale

A farm in Cheshire that was destroyed by a massive fire has been put up for sale.

The two-story building off Boundary Lane in Threapwood, Malpas, was put on the market months after the fire started in the early hours of October 28 last year.

No one was seriously injured in the fire, but the damage caused the roof and the first floor to collapse.

Real estate and asset consulting firm David Currie & Co is handling the sale of the property, which also includes approximately six acres of land, extensive gardens, water features and additional outbuildings.

David Currie said: “This is a great opportunity to acquire a small property and build your own home in a picturesque village in Cheshire. “

The five bedroom house and surrounding site is touted as a ‘development opportunity’ and is available as a single lot or in plots.

The fire that destroyed the farm started just before 4:30 a.m. on October 28 last year, with six fire trucks called to the scene due to the severity of the blaze.
