Black Lion Farm is located in the rural setting of Chorlton, only a short distance from Malpas.

The local village of Malpas offers most day-to-day amenities and boasts a number of convenience stores, cafe\'s, pubs and restaurants as well as a doctor\'s surgery.

In terms of transport links, Black Lion Farm is less than three miles from the A41. This road links the historic market town of Whitchurch to the City of Chester and beyond to Liverpool. Whitchurch has a well-connected train station linking Shrewsbury to Crewe, where further express trains to London, Liverpool and Manchester are available.

On the educational front, Malpas boasts both primary and secondary schools, including the popular Bishop Heber High School (Rated Outstanding). Further afield there are both private and comprehensive schools available, including the well know Queens and Kings in Chester and Ellesmere College. Whitchurch also has a number of primary schools and a secondary school.

There are several golf courses locally at Whitchurch, Carden Park and Tarporley. The area has plenty of sporting clubs available, including Malpas Football and Cricket club, Whitchurch Rugby Club and Cholmondeley Cricket and Tennis clubs. There are gym and spa facilities in Whitchurch and Carden Park and a number of well know footpaths in the area.

The area is ideal for the equestrian enthusiast with plenty of hacking along the local country roads to gallops and arena facilities at the local Broxton Hall Gallops and Kelsall Hill Equestrian Centre. Tushingham and Southview Equestrian Centre are also only a short distance away and offer plenty of events and facilities.

Black Lion Farm is located off Chorlton Lane in the parish of Chorlton and is entered via a gated access leading into a large parking and turning area.

The property is built from brick construction under a slate roof and has been subject to significant investment and improvement from the existing owners. It offers spacious and modern accommodation with excellent potential for further extensions or annexed accommodation in the adjacent barn.

The front of the house has been impressively extended to create a large oak framed reception and living room, which opens onto a large patio area, perfect for entertaining. Off this room is a handy utility and boot room. With an open plan feel, the kitchen has a range of ground and wall mounted units, centre island and oil-fired AGA. Adjacent is a living room with feature fireplace and wood-burner. This room leads into another living room, currently used as an office. Completing the ground floor is a large timber framed garden room with doors opening onto the patio area.

The first floor boasts a large master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and two further double bedrooms. There is a fourth bedroom with fitted wardrobes and sink unit, currently being used as a dressing room. Finally, there is a family bathroom with walk-in shower, free standing roll-top bath, sink and WC.

Surrounding the property is a very well-kept mature garden with lawn area leading down to the paddocks.

There is a L-shaped brick-built building under a slate roof and timber cladding to most elevations. This smart building houses a double garage and 5 stables, along with a secure tack and storeroom. The facilities are perfect for the equestrian enthusiast.

Adjoining to the property is a brick-built barn under a slate roof. This building has planning permission for "conversion of barn into additional habitable space". Planning permission was granted in 2005 and a material commencement was made within the allotted time period. The planning permission is therefore still in place; however, the majority of works have not been carried out. This gives prospective purchasers the opportunity to consider extending the existing property considerably or create ancillary accommodation to the principal dwelling.

The land equates to 4.18 acres and is formed of two paddocks, both of which have mains water connected.


Mains water and electricity, gas fired central heating and private drainage to septic tank and oil for AGA.
