Location
Moorfields Farm is situated on the outskirts of the popular village of Pulford, on the edge of the Grosvenor Estate. Pulford is a sought after and popular established location lying between the Historical City of Chester and Wrexham town which both offer a vast range of shopping facilities and restaurants. The motorway network provides good access to Liverpool, Manchester & Chester; Chester has a direct rail service to London Euston (from under 2 hours).
The area hosts schooling for both secondary and primary education and is very popular for the busy commuter making it very accessible to the motorway networks. There are restaurants, public houses and shops for everyday needs within easy reach.

Description
Moorfields Farm has been in the current family’s ownership since 1919 when the farm was purchased off the Duke of Westminster’s estate. The farm was subsequently run as Dairy & Sheep farm. The construction of the A483 road in the 1980’s divided the land & today the land and outbuildings are used to run a DIY livery yard.

The farmhouse has undergone a programme of refurbishment by the current vendors to include a new roof, new double glazed hardwood windows, new electrics, damp proof course, 3 log burners & a 12month old oil central heating system; however, further works are required to complete the refurbishment.

Externally, there is a traditional range of brick outbuildings, arranged in a courtyard opposite from the house, which offer 6/7 Stables, Tack & Feed Room, & a Wash Box. There are further detached outbuildings including a Hay Barn, Cart House / Garage. The vendors also report that they have had a now lapsed planning consent for an additional Agricultural Shed (60ft x 45ft) to the rear of the stables.
There is a recently installed excellent 42m x 21m Manege, post and rail perimeter fenced & with a silica sand and rubber surface. The land totals a ring fenced 16acres of flat pastureland.

Prospective purchasers are forewarned that this property does border the A483 & hence there is considerable traffic noise. Furthermore, the vendor has notified us that one of their relations is buried on the land, within one of the front grass paddocks, having received all relevant permissions.
