Full description

Set in grounds of approximately half an acre and enjoying superb open rural views to the rear - a fabulous individual detached house with the benefit of a detached double garage and offering accommodation comprising: Four bedrooms, two bathrooms and two separate reception rooms. Outstanding fringe of village location where properties are continually in demand and rarely become available and superbly positioned within strolling distance of Delamere Forest

Norley is one of Cheshire's most picturesque and beautiful semi-rural villages. The location combines rural beauty with close proximity to Delamere Forest with a position of considerable convenience being close to a comprehensive road network system linking to the north west and beyond and also being close to key strategic railway stations and two international airports. The subject property is a fine individual detached house, the single storey part was constructed in 1975 and the second storey building in 1981. It stands in grounds of approximately half an acre, enjoys superb rural views to the rear elevation and has the benefit of a detached double garage.
The accommodation has an unusual layout with the emphasis on high grade building materials and excellent room sizes. At ground floor level there is a stunning living room measuring just under 30ft in length in addition to a dining room with elevation over the front garden. The breakfast kitchen has ample space for table and chairs whilst the ground floor is completed by two spacious bedrooms and a family bathroom.
At first floor level bedroom one has excellent views over the rear garden and views beyond as well as having a useful ensuite facility. There is also a walk in cupboard and a second bedroom at first floor level.

Although extended in 1981, there remains considerable potential to further enhance and extend the property (subject to the necessary planning permissions being granted). The most obvious modification would be to create two further bedrooms at first floor level to fully maximise the benefit of the plot.
The quality of the location cannot be overstated. The levels of seclusion and privacy are absolutely excellent throughout whilst the gardens have been beautifully maintained by the present owners. They are predominantly laid with well tended lawn but also contain seating areas and extensive gravel driveway to the front that leads directly to the detached double garage. The detached double garage has annexe potential (subject to planning permission) and despite its rural views and aspects, the property is only minutes walk of Norley village centre, together with all its amenities including primary school, public houses and churches.

Norley is set amidst the Cheshire countryside on the fringe of Delamere Forest which offers a host of outdoor activities including good walks, mountain biking, horse riding and nature trails. The house is located opposite within walking distance of Hatchmere Lake which is a protected nature reserve supporting a large array of fish and wildlife. Norley is well situated for access by road and rail to the commercial centres including Cheshire, Liverpool and Manchester. Delamere railway station is within 1 mile giving good access with Chester some 14 miles, Liverpool 24 miles, Manchester 28 miles, Frodsham 8 miles and Tarporley 8 miles. Norley itsel offers everyday shopping provisions at the local grocery shop whilst the adjacent villages of Kingsley, Cuddington and the market towns of Frodsham and Northwich offer more comprehensive facilities. Frodsham is a traditional market town that hosts a regular street market offering an array of local produce. Manchester and Liverpool International Airports are found within 45 minutes drive. There are a range of superb schools in both the state and private sector within close proximity with the increasingly popular Grange School in Hartford being just 10 to 15 minutes drive away.

The gravelled driveway approach is secured by a cobbled set entrance and twin timber five bar gates and has ample parking for several vehicles. The driveway is flanked by areas of lawn with mature hedging and trees as the integral part of the landscape. The garden sweeps round to the detached double garage and a paved path accessed via brick and stone steps leads to the front entrance door.
The garden then extends to the side and the rear and is principally laid with beautifully well tended lawn and the whole enclosed by mature hedging and trees. There is a large paved patio in the rear garden and an array of beautifully stocked beds and borders and of significant appeal is the fact that the garden adjoins open countryside so has the benefit of not only superb views but almost total seclusion and privacy. The grounds and gardens extend in total approximately half an acre in addition to the aforementioned double garage there is a timber shed with felt roof and a lean-to fuel store.
