This unreal Cheshire manor house was one of the most-viewed homes of 2023 on Rightmove

Yeah, you can see why.

Rightmove has revealed its list of the most-viewed homes of 2023, and unsurprisingly (given that this sentence involves the words ‘£10 million’ and ‘manor’), a £10m Cheshire manor house made the list.

We all love to torture ourselves looking at beautiful things we’ll probably never own (like Harry Styles), so it’s no wonder that the most-viewed houses are all at least £2m.

In 2023, we were nosey at a £75m mansion in Buckinghamshire, a Victorian Villa set within actual palace grounds, an 18-bedroom castle, and a Lake District home in private countryside.

But also making the list was Blackden Manor, a Grade II-listed manor house in Goostrey, not far from Greater Manchester.

This sprawling house has six bedrooms, a butler’s pantry, a wine cellar AND a temperature-controlled wine display room, a drawing room, dining room, sitting room and kitchen/breakfast room, a billiard room with a hidden bar, a gym, a LIBRARY, and loads more.


The Cheshire manor house has been constructed around a central courtyard and retains loads of original period features.

While some rooms are still historic, with wood-panelled walls and ornate fireplaces, others are modern and filled with state-of-the-art fixtures.


You can even see Jodrell Bank from here while roaming around your 28.5 acres of land.

It’s not just the main manor house included £10m price tag – the property also has a self-contained annexe for staff or a relative, and an entire cottage in the grounds with three more bedrooms and its own garden.

Outside, there’s a five-car garage with storage above, a two-storey barn with scope for development, an outdoor swimming pool, a tennis court, landscape gardens, a lake, and a paddock.


Crispin Harris, director of Jackson-Stops, who are listing the home, said: “One of the finest country houses I have ever had the pleasure of visiting, Blackden Manor is an exemplar of creating modern living within the context of a beautiful Listed building”

Rightmove’s property expert Tim Bannister said of the most-viewed homes of 2023: “Home-hunters have taken a look inside some of the grandest homes on the market during their search this year, with unique features ranging from a home gym and swimming pool, to a library and even a temperature controlled wine cellar.”
