The property rests amongst 2 blissful acres of gardens and it is steeped in history. Originally dating back to c1650 there’s character in abundance but there’s a real balance between its heritage features and the modern amenities that distinguish its interior. Honest, solid materials are the keystones of the property and its scale is large (over 1800 square feet), however its rustic aesthetic softens the space resulting in a comfortable and relaxing country home. Seclusion and serenity are everything here and the homes beautiful plot is ultimately private with breath taking aspects over the surrounding farmland. The spacious flowing floor plan allows you to spread out in comfort and the luxury runs over in the shape of its gorgeous hand-crafted oak kitchen, character and charm oozes from every crook and cranny and through the windows you can admire beautiful gardens, listen to the birds chirping, see the butterflies fluttering and even a deer or two in the surrounding fields. Throughout the home there is a wonderful sense of light and cosiness and its warm welcoming atmosphere envelopes you. Internal inspection will certainly not disappoint and will reveal accommodation highlights that briefly include a reception hallway, a relaxed lounge with dual aspects and feature stone mullion window, a formal dining room, a sitting room with cosy wood burning stove, a gorgeous sun lounge with bi-folding doors out onto the rear patio - perfect for entertaining! A beautiful bespoke kitchen with granite tops, integrated appliances and an AGA. On the first floor there are delightful three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The bedrooms are all finished with quality fitted bedroom furniture with the pristine bathroom being tiled and having a four-piece suite in classic white including a stand-alone claw foot bath and walk-in, glass screen shower. The outside spaces are just as impressive as the interior and offer a sanctuary to enjoy the tranquil setting of the countryside. There are two acres of gardens, a wildlife pond, stables and a recently built detached ancillary building with a gym, a shower room and an office, the living space is very flexible and it would lend itself perfectly for co-dependent living whether for a teenager or grandparents. There was previously a floodlit horse menage that could easily be reinstated, and the gated driveway affords extensive parking with access an open garage which forms part of the new ancillary building. We love the charm, space and style of this characterful home, we love its setting and the views are just glorious. We love the location too, tucked away in the heart of the country yet so close to amenities and junction 27 of the M6 motorway is just 3.7 miles away, making it perfect for the commuter and giving easy access to Preston, Wigan, Bolton, Manchester and Liverpool.
