Full property description
A once in a generation opportunity to acquire a large and incredibly handsome, detached Victorian farmhouse; arriving on the market for the first time in more than 75 years. Set within 2.2 acres of delightful countryside, offering fantastic potential and with further land available by separate negotiation.
Moss End Farm is a most attractive period farmhouse, occupying a charming rural position in the hamlet of Smallwood, which is convenient for the larger towns of Sandbach, Congleton and the popular village of Holmes Chapel. The property is situated on a quiet country lane, shared with only a handful of individual residential properties and enjoys wonderful aspects over its extensive gardens and grounds, towards open farmland.
The extensive grounds comprise of a small orchard, and open land with lake frontage, which is a real haven for wildlife. There are generous lawn gardens, which extend to the side and rear of the house, enclosed by a charming Cheshire brick wall, with stone coping to the front boundary. A cobbled driveway extends to the other side of the house and provides off-lane parking space for several vehicles.
The property offers exceptionally spacious accommodation, laid mainly over two floors, extending to around 4,400ft².
On the ground floor level a wide and spacious Reception Hallway provides access to all of the reception areas, including a large Sitting Room located to the front of the house with an attractive box bay window. Further windows overlook the side gardens and there is a central fireplace with a beautiful marble surround and cast-iron fire with decorative inland tiling.
The Dining Room is exceptionally spacious, with a box bay window boasting views of the gardens. The room has exposed wooden flooring and a stunning marble fireplace with inlaid tiling and a tiled hearth.
The Kitchen, which adjoins a spacious Morning Room and downstairs WC & Shower Room, is fitted with matching oak cabinets and incorporates a multi oven range and integrated dishwasher.
Adjoining the Morning Room is an enclosed rear Hallway with access to a Courtyard and a superb Annex, set over two floors, all of which could be integrated into the main living accommodation but which has masses of potential to be utilised as auxiliary accommodation.
To the rear of the house there are further rooms including a Scullery, a Cold Room and a large Pantry Storeroom.
Two magnificent Staircases, each located at opposite ends of the house, lead to the first floor level, where wide and expansive Corridors provide access to five Double Bedrooms. Three of these are incredibly spacious, all with feature fireplaces and one with an En-Suite. A sixth Bedroom / Box Rom is located off the landing area to the front of the house and would be ideally converted into a Bathroom. Read more
