Moss Farm House is situated in a particularly scenic part of the county, close to the rural hamlet of Harthill and at the foot of the Peckforton Hills.
The villages of Tattenhall and Malpas are 5 and 7 miles respectively, and both provide a comprehensive range of services including general stores, butchers, chemists, doctor's surgeries, pubs and restaurants.
The historic walled city of Chester lies 10 miles to the east and provides a more comprehensive range of services together with out of town retail parks.
Schooling is well catered for with primary schools at Harthill, Bickerton and Tattenhall. Heber High School at Malpas is a popular secondary school, and independent education is available at Kings and Queens in Chester and at Abbey Gate College in Saighton.
On the recreational front there are several golf courses nearby at Carden Park, Aldersey and Waverton, motor racing at Oulton Park and Tattenhall village (5 miles) has a thriving sports club offering football, cricket, tennis and squash.
For equestrian enthusiasts there is polo at Little Budworth, and racing at Chester and Bangor on Dee. Quiet country lanes accessed directly from the property provide wonderful opportunities for hacking. The area also offers excellent walks along the Sandstone Trail, just a short distance away.
Whilst enjoying a rural setting the property benefits from excellent road communications with access to the M53/M56 motorways beyond Chester, allowing daily travel to all areas of commerce throughout the North West.
Liverpool and Manchester international airports are 34 and 37 miles respectively, and travel to London is available via Crewe Station (15 miles) offering a direct service to London Euston (from 2 hours).
Moss Farm House occupies a delightful setting, surrounded by open countryside it is sheltered to the east by the Peckforton Hills and enjoys uninterrupted views across adjoining fields to the south west.
The property is approached through a gated entrance which leads to a gravelled courtyard where there is access to the double carport (and adjacent store) and parking for several vehicles.
The principal reception rooms are centred around a bright and welcoming entrance hall and comprise a sitting room/study and a drawing room, both of which have double doors to the garden. There is a downstairs shower room also accessed off the entrance hall.
The drawing room has an attractive open fireplace and exposed beams. Adjacent to this room is the dining room, another well-proportioned reception space with a door leading to the kitchen/breakfast room.
The kitchen is well-equipped with a range of base and wall units and several appliances, including an electric three oven Aga, integrated dishwasher and a double fridge.
The utility room is accessed off the kitchen and provides additional cupboards, an integrated freezer, and oil-fired boiler and a stable door to outside.
On the first floor there are five bedrooms (the principal bedroom having an en suite bathroom) and a large family bathroom. All bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and a lovely outlook across open countryside.
The gardens at Moss Farm House are delightful. To the south, paved terraces are cleverly positioned to take full advantage of the views across farmland and beyond to the Welsh hills.
Principally laid to lawn, the gardens are a wonderful space in which to relax or entertain, or for younger members of the family to play.
Beyond the boundary of the garden there is a half acre field of which the current owners enjoy the use (by virtue of an annual licence). Further details are available from the agents.
