FULL ADDRESS - Moss Farm, Yearsley Lane, Norley WA6 8PL

Wend along the winding bridleway to rediscover your sense of balance at Moss Farm, a sanctuary of peace and nature in the countryside village of Norley.

Rural refuge
After around a third of a mile, branch right and pull up on the large gravel parking area for Moss Farm, a fourth-generation family home dating back to 1891. Mature trees encourage birdlife, creating a tranquil scene upon arrival at this late Victorian, imposing yet inviting redbrick farmhouse.

Warmth and welcome
An arched front door opens into the entrance hall, light spilling down on the hardwood floor through the attractive arced transom above. Take the first door on the right to arrive at what currently serves as the study. Light and bright, windows to the front and side capture perfectly the tranquility of the surroundings, with far reaching views along the bridleway and to the tree dappled gardens.

Furnished with a creamy stone fireplace and fire, with traditional cornicing above, this room could make a cosy snug, formal dining room or cheerful playroom for children.

OWNER QUOTE: “It’s a beautiful, peaceful setting – that’s this home’s joy.”

Across from the study, the light-filled living room is an airy room throughout the seasons. Tall windows to both the front and rear ensure an exceptional supply of light, providing restorative views out over the fields. Spy the Canada geese and ducks visiting the large pond along the bridleway to the front.

Hunker down in the winter in front of the multi-fuel fire, connected to the radiator systems for a cost-effective winter heating boost. Original doors are evocative of Moss Farm’s heritage, a reminder of the traditional feel and peaceful ambience this home embodies.

Practical places
Take the side door from the living room into a rear passageway, where there is access to a storage-laden walk-in pantry come cloakroom handy for cleaning essentials and much more.

Continue on into the breakfast room, tiled underfoot in creamy salmon tones and amply illuminated by spotlights and a feature pendant, suspended above the dining table. Natural light flows in through a glazed door, opening out to the garden beyond.

Farmhouse feasts
Flowing on from here is the modern farmhouse kitchen, dressed in a calming palette of tranquil blues, greens and creams. Olive units offering a profusion of storage shift hue in the changing light, moving from grey to soft green, backed by earthy splashback tiles. The central island, topped in treacle toned wood, also serves as a breakfast bar for casual dining in this spacious and sociable kitchen. With ample room for sofas, spend time with family in this natural hub; there is plenty of space to move about from the Rangemaster to the double sink and dishwasher, whilst friends and family enjoy a drink and conversation. Tucked off from the kitchen find a well-equipped utility room. A large floor to ceiling cupboard, replete with storage racks for brooms and other cleaning essentials also comes with hanging space for a dozen coats and also houses the heating boiler. There is also a cloakroom with wash basin and WC.

Swimming in light, windows capture views out to both the rear two-level patio and the orchard beyond.

Connect with nature
Whatever the season, enjoy the perfect privacy and seclusion of this spot in the garden room, part of a 2011 extension. Removable sides ensure a cool breeze in the summer, whilst retaining warmth in winter for alfresco dining. A bridge between the indoors and garden beyond, the tiled floor - low maintenance and easy to clean - is perfect for planting out in wellies.

Returning to the entrance hall, take the stairs up to the first-floor landing, making your way to the master suite to the rear.

A room with a view
Sunlight streams in through a large window and a glazed door, opening out to a balcony where unbroken views extend over the garden to the orchard beyond. Observe the change of seasons marked through the falling leaves, spring blossom and ripe harvest on the fruit trees. Spacious and light, this master bedroom also benefits from its own private ensuite. Part panelled walls surround, with a separate shower and a freestanding claw-foot rolltop bath ideal for relaxing with a glass of wine at the end of a busy week. This five-piece ensuite also features wash basin, WC and bidet.

OWNER QUOTE: “You’re very much aware of constant changing of the seasons, it’s spectacular in snow, spring and thrilling in stormy weather. The light is incredible.”

The family bathroom is nestled to the right of the stairs, a large room accommodating a bath with two overhead showers one electric and the other using the hot water from the multifuel, a wash basin, WC and bidet alongside a traditional-style linen cupboard; ideal for airing washing.

Across from the bathroom, bedroom four serves as a dressing room and bedroom, furnished with fitted wardrobes and a bed-settee. Wooden flooring extends underfoot with views out over the orchard and neighbouring field where sheep are kept.

Light filled living
Overlooking the glorious views to the front are two further guest bedrooms. Bedroom two soaks up the light from two sides, spacious and bright, with laminate wood effect flooring. Across the way, the third double bedroom also soaks up soothing views over the garden and countryside.

OWNER QUOTE: “Every bedroom has a beautiful view. There are no dark rooms at all.”

Sunny sanctuary
With more than an acre of land to explore, enjoy the peace and tranquility of your own mature gardens at Moss Farm. Low maintenance and mainly laid to lawn, a two-tiered patio offers the opportunity to relax in the sunshine or sizzle up the barbecue in summertime.

Live the good life and grow your own, the mature orchard hosts a multitude of varieties including blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, blackcurrant, plums, pears, apples, damsons and walnut trees.

Sheds provide plenty of storage space for your gardening essentials whilst a chicken coop offers the prospect of rearing your own fowl for eggs.

Brimming with wildlife, squirrels, hedgehogs, herons and even birds of prey have been spied in and amongst the mature trees and gardens of Moss Farm.
