Home Farm is found on the outskirts of the popular village of Adderley which was granted a market charter in 1309 and developed as a stopping point and market due to its position en-route between the salt-producing town of Nantwich and the industrial centres of the Midlands.
Nowadays this charming village offers a small range of facilities including a popular primary school, village hall licensed for events, bowling green and Grade I listed Church.
A larger range of facilities can be found in nearby Market Drayton and Nantwich as well as access to commuter routes including motorway and rail links.
Originally built by the Corbet family, whose family seat was Adderley Hall and whose estate included many surrounding properties, Home Farm was occupied as the bailiff’s and gamekeeper’s cottage. The property was purchased as part of a farm from the estate in 1958 and has since be occupied by the same family.
Home Farm has been vastly altered and extended over the years but the original part of the house bears a date mark of 1877 and a huge number of period features are evident throughout. The intricately decorated chimney stacks are a signature of the estate with several other nearby properties having the same feature. The dining room is an unusual curved shape and has a unique conical-shaped roof and is believed to have been utilised as the estate game larder.

The house is accessed through an impressive oak front door which leads to the main hall with the dining room and sitting room found immediately off the hall. The sitting room houses the original bread oven which no longer functions but offers an attractive feature and to the far end of the room is a log-burner. Beyond this is a smaller sitting room which also has a log-burning stove and provides a cosier room for everyday living complete with doors to the garden, there is also planning permission for a conservatory off this room.
The farmhouse-style kitchen is well-equipped with an AGA and an electric cooker and has a large window offering a lovely view across farmland towards the village. Further to this there is a utility room, pantry cupboard, office and downstairs shower room.
To the first floor there are four well-proportioned bedrooms, the master having an en-suite shower room, and a family bathroom with separate WC.
A car port is found to the rear of the house and in addition there is planning permission for creation of a garage.
The gardens are particularly attractive, predominantly laid to lawn they are interspersed with generously planted borders and are well screened by mature hedgerows. These run down to the woodland, past the pool, which is at the foot of the garden and offers further space to enjoy this peaceful and tranquil location
Beyond the garden is a paddock, which totals 1.4 Acres and offers ideal space for the grazing of a horse or pony. The land is level and would offer suitable space for erection of a stable or schooling area subject to any necessary planning consent. The area is particularly popular with those with equestrian interests and the network of quiet country lanes in the area are ideal for exercising of horses or for exploring on foot.
