Home Farm Cottage, Norley, is offered to the market with no on going chain and enjoys a superb fringe of village location that combines day to day convenience with a superb rural outlook and tranquil location. The cottage retains great character and appeal, it has been tastefully modernised in recent years, yet also offers further scope and potential to upgrade, enhance and adapt to suit individual requirements. An inspection of the house and gardens is required to appreciate the uniqueness of the opportunity and the size, layout and condition of the house lends itself perfectly to family occupation.
The house is approached via a shared cobbled driveway that leads to Home Farm Cottage's own private gravelled parking area.
There is a spacious Entrance Hall which leads to the main living area, stairs rising to the first floor and steps leading down to a very useful Cellar. There are period features, including latched doors and beamed ceilings to some of the rooms. The focal point of the ground floor accommodation is the l-shaped Breakfast Kitchen/Family Room that provides an ideal space for family living and enjoys delightful views over the garden and countryside beyond. The Half Landing has a tall window, which again overlooks the rear garden and provides an appealing vantage point between the ground floor living space and the first floor Bedrooms.
The First Floor is particularly impressive with the Master Bedroom having an En Suite Bath/Shower Room. The three further Bedrooms are all of generous proportions and the Family Bathroom is well appointed and spacious.
As previously mentioned, the grounds to Home Farm Cottage are an absolute delight. The private landscaped gardens are mainly laid to lawn and also incorporates a large raised Yorkstone Patio area. The outside space has further potential with the obvious prospect of a detached double garage being erected either on or next to the current parking area, subject to the necessary Planning Permissions being granted.
In summary, Home Farm Cottage is a superb family home located in a wonderful fringe of village location that carries the rare benefit of having immaculate "move straight into" accommodation, offering potential purchasers the opportunity to adapt and alter to suit their own specification.
Norley is a semi rural village whose name is believed to derive from the Old English word for "North Clearing in the Forest" which relates to its origins as a settlement in the Kings Forest. The village has an excellent number of facilities which include a highly regarded Church of England primary school, village hall, two churches, local shop and highly regarded Tigers Head Public House. The village also acts as an ideal location for commuting to the employment areas of Warrington, Merseyside, Chester and South Manchester.

From the Agents' Tarporley office, turn right and leave the village in the direction of Chester. Upon reaching the roundabout take the third exit on to the A49. Continue through Cotebrook and having passed the Tarporley Garden Centre (lhs) turn left on to the A54 (signposted Chester). Take the first right on to the B5152 (Fishpool Inn on lhs). At the next crossroads proceed straight over the A54 and continue on Station Road past Delamere Station and through the forest until reaching a minor crossroads with a small chapel on the left, and turn right on to School Lane (signposted Norley). This lane shortly bears right and becomes Post Office Lane - however, keep left and remain on School Lane.
