La Mancha Hall is a splendid Grade II listed mid-18th century detached residence settled privately amongst approximately ten acres of beautiful formal gardens, ancient woodland and paddock land.
Constructed using handmade brick this exceptional home has all the beauty, elegance and ambiance of the era in which it was built and offers space and light in abundance. The main residence affords over 5200 square feet of living space with outbuildings offering a further 3200 square feet to include stables, workshops and a huge garage with space for up to 10 cars and potential for further ancillary living space.
The home’s Georgian facade is simply breath taking, its classical architecture characterised by the symmetry and proportions of a typical English manor house, exquisitely finished with Sandstone blocking course, plinths and a hipped slate roof. Approached via a long private road which runs parallel to the East wall of the estate, the property has gated access to a sweeping driveway and turning circle, fronted by pristine formal lawns.
Internally the property displays an abundance of original features and the grand reception hallway with its stunning staircase provides a fine introduction. The home’s rooms are grand and plentiful with the two main receptions displaying high ceilings, original coving and beautiful fireplaces with Grecian detailing. Many of the home’s rooms afford beautiful views of the gardens and have large windows and South facing aspects for lovers of natural light. Further rooms on the ground floor include a cosy snug, kitchen and dining area, backless pantry, store room, utility room, a cloak room, handy downstairs wc, access to multiple full height cellar rooms and a further kitchen and utility room which form part of the annexed part of the home which also has its own separate access, a workshop (with potential for a lounge) and stairs to two separate bedrooms and a three piece shower room. The first-floor accommodation can be accessed via two separate staircases which lead to four good sized bedrooms, three bathrooms and a dressing room.
The home’s outbuildings are numerous and offer wonderful potential (subject to planning) for further residential living space which could be converted as ancillary space or indeed separate dwellings. The detached double height garage on its own measures 1870 square feet with the 4/6 bay stable block proving a further 1359 square feet with two garages and a wood store.
The grounds are just as impressive as the interior and offer an outside sanctuary to enjoy the tranquil private setting surrounded by West Lancashire countryside. The gardens are varied and interested with wonderful areas in which to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life. Features include a formal garden with swathes of well-kept lawns and abundant herbaceous borders, there’s a summer house and an outdoor pool with patios for grand outdoor entertaining. There are two large ponds, protected woodland, paddocks, classic cottage gardens, a kitchen garden, an orchard and a Japanese garden all teaming with flora, fauna and wildlife.
The home is surrounded by farmland and glorious countryside vistas. We love the classic, idyllic country setting as much as its accessibility to the coast and the wider region including Liverpool and Manchester. We are lured not just by the location but the opportunity to live an authentic country lifestyle without compromising on access to amenities. And, if we’ve left you in any doubt as to the vast array of possibilities the home offers, then seeing it for yourself will illustrate precisely how stimulating and liberating life in this quiet part of the West Lancashire countryside can be.
