Welcome to ‘Newsham’, an incredible four bedroom detached home enjoying a privileged position behind electronic gates and settled amongst almost two acres of pristine land and gardens. Be overwhelmed by natural light, beautiful finishes, and dreamy countryside views to the rear of the house.
Peacefully nestled on the fringes of greenbelt countryside with pretty St James church as a backdrop, the home inspires total relaxation with sunny Southerly aspects amid total privacy, delivering everything on the wish list of a fine country home. With almost 5000 square feet of living space there so much to love about the property and internal inspection will certainly not disappoint revealing a combination of gorgeous aesthetic features and contemporary design elements that characterise both the exterior and interior spaces. Quality finishes and beautiful styling are the keystones of the home and whilst the scale of the house is large its flowing floor plan and tasteful decor soften the spaces resulting in a wonderfully comfortable and relaxing country home.
Accommodation highlights include an impressive reception hallway, a gorgeous lounge with wooden flooring and an attractive feature fireplace, a formal dining room with contemporary log burner, an office/home gym, a fitted study/tv room, a quite breath-taking open plan dining kitchen and living area which has more recently been the subject of a contemporary extension which affords a cosy wood burner and takes full advantage of the open aspects to the rear with huge glass sliding doors that allow a seamless transition to the gardens and rear patio. The kitchen itself is fitted with an array of bespoke wall and base units with a centre island, breakfast bar, granite worktops, a range oven and integrated appliances. The ground floor is rounded off with a practical utility room, a handy storeroom and a two-piece cloaks/wc. On the first floor there are four sumptuous bedrooms and two en-suites with the fitted master suite having a dressing room and a four-piece en-suite bathroom with shower. Three of the bedrooms include bespoke fitted bedroom furniture and the bathrooms are all finished with beautiful sanitaryware and complementary tiling.
The home’s exterior is equally as impressive as its interior and includes a two-storey detached double garage which has been converted into a fabulous entertaining space with a bar area and pool table, along with wc. To the rear of the property there’s further entertaining space with a huge, decked area and a summer house with a lounge and a fully equipped kitchen with bi-folding doors giving access to a sunken outdoor seating area with outdoor fire and a jacuzzi jet pool - a wonderfully sociable space and perfect for grand entertaining. The surrounding gardens are magnificent and wrap around the house allowing you to follow the sunshine, there are swathes of perfectly manicured lawns along with mature planting, a grazing paddock, extensive parking and an enclosed dog run.
You can escape from the everyday here and the setting offers a sense of intimate enclosure and to some degree, due to its visual seclusion, a sense of separateness, although in reality, you are within walking distance of Ormskirk’s bustling town centre and just a short drive to the motorway network which makes it a great home for anyone who needs to commute. Beautiful country walks are also on the doorstep as is ‘Ruff Woods’ a delightful woodland walk which is just around the corner. The area is also notable for its prestige homes and for being in the catchment area of some of the area’s most highly regarded schools.
Simply put, ‘Newsham’ affords a truly aspirational lifestyle which combines beautiful living spaces, great architecture and an unbeatable location. And, if we’ve left you in any doubt as to the vast array of possibilities this home offers, then seeing it for yourself will illustrate precisely how stimulating and liberating life in this quiet part of rural Ormskirk can be.
