The £1.2m house that comes with SIX fishing lakes

A three-bed house is up for sale in Salford priced at £1.2m.

That almost five times more than the average price of £240,000 for a detached in that area.

And you’d be right in thinking something smells a bit fishy.

That’s because this property comes with six lakes stocked with a range of fish, some weighing more than 30lbs.

The fishery is close to Irlam town centre

The house is part of Moss Farm Fisheries, on Cutnook Lane, close to Irlam town centre.

It dates back to 1800 and has been renovated by the current owners.

But if it’s not to your taste there is planning permission in place to demolish the building and construct a modern four-bedroom detached house.

A tackle and bait shop and worm breeding room is included in the sale

It would appear from the photos this might not be necessary as the home includes a spacious kitchen/diner area with a central island, an oil-fired Rayburn and cast iron log burner.

There’s also a 28ft long lounge with another wood burner and three large bedrooms.

The price includes a cafe and farm shop

What else will you get for your money?

There’s a brick-built, two-storey barn with planning permission to knock down and replace with three new homes.

According to the agents, planning has also been passed for two semi-detached houses (one three-bed and one four-bed) and a further detached three-bed home.

A separate outbuilding, also included in the sale, once housed a kitchen for soldiers in the Second World War and still retains the original sink and oven.

The house dates back to 1800

And there’s more.

The site also includes a café and two shops.

This is a development opportunity for somebody who knows about both property developing and fishing, as the fishery currently has more than 300 members and a huge stock of coarse fish and carp, not to mention a worm breeding room.

With the right planning consents, other business could be established on the site, such as children’s play barns and farm shops.

So will a buyer take the bait?
