It's like living in a pigsty! Homes for sale that once housed pigs

It’s like living in a pigsty! Three properties for sale that were once homes for pigs – could you turn one into a Grand Design?

  • We take a look inside three properties for sale that include original pigsties
  • The pigsties have – or could be – transformed into a stunning family home
  • The three properties for sale range in price from £795,000 to £1.1million

Some in messy households may feel like they’re living in a pigsty, but these three homes for sale mean you could claim that.

That is because all of them can lay claim to being formerly a pigsty: oen has been converted into the existing home, while two are a perfect project for someone looking to take on a Grand Design.

We take a look inside the three properties that range in price from £795,000 to £1.1million, which is significantly more than the £327,693 average price of a home sold in Britain during the past year. 

We take a look at three different properties for sale, which all  include former pigsties (scroll down for more details on this property pictured)

This Welsh farmhouse comes with 55 acres and is sat in the rolling hills of Powys. It has two bedrooms and breath-taking views across the surrounding countryside.

Outside, there is an L-shaped barn that was once stables, as well as pig and sheep pens. The original walls of the pig pens are still intact outside of the walls of the barns.

During the last 30 years, the main enclosure of the barn was re-roofed and had rooflights installed.

There is still scope to restore the barns further subject to planning permission. The property is on the market for £795,000 via James Dean estate agents.

This farmhouse in Cheshire comes with 57 acres and is on the fringe of the hamlet of Tushingham.

The property is for sale for £1,075,000 and the estate agent handling the sale is Fisher German.

The agent highlights the lean-to-brick former pigsties with a covered run, which they say would be ideal as a dog kennel. Or you could be more ambitious and enlist an architect to get a transformation into a stunning addition to the property through planning.
