Discretely situated behind electronically operated gates, giving a real sense of privacy and seclusion, Halsall Manor Court is widely acknowledged as one of the most prestigious addresses the desirable village of Halsall has to offer, its characterful properties blending seamlessly with their rural surroundings. This stunning home forms part of a barn conversion at the heart of this prestigious development, its effortlessly pretty exterior oozing rustic appeal and brimming with charm. From what was once a building designed for function over aesthetics, a supremely elegant home, both internally and externally, has been created, offering all the modern appointments required of a property in the 21st century, whilst retaining the characterful accents which create such originality and personality. The property is nestled amidst the picturesque West Lancashire countryside, a delightful rural outpost renowned for its luxury country homes and peaceful setting, yet within easy reach of a broad range of amenities within the historic market town of Ormskirk, with its eclectic array of boutique and high street shops, bars and eateries, as well as excellent transport links via rail and road for those wishing to travel further afield, ensuring major commercial centres such as Manchester and Liverpool are within a reasonable commute. Internally, the property offers generous levels of space extending to circa 1,584 square feet and perfect for the expanding family, a fact accentuated by the close proximity to the outstanding St. Cuthbert’s C.E. Primary School, which is within a moment’s stroll, entering via the grandly proportioned reception hallway with its spindled staircase to the first floor and convenient two piece cloakroom/WC, which really sets the tone for the accommodation, visitors being greeted by a rich sense of heritage, a feeling which pervades throughout the living spaces. One proceeds through into the gorgeous 23’ lounge/diner, a room which epitomises what this property is about, creating a delightful cosy ambiance despite its impressive proportions and brimming with character features, such as exposed brick walls and beamed ceilings, as well as a feature fireplace, whilst the glazed double doors opening directly onto the rear garden will be invaluable in those warm summer months. The 15’ kitchen/diner offers a real hub of the home feel, being fitted with an extensive range of Oak-effect wall and base units with contrasting laminated work surfaces and equipped with a host of integrated appliances, including Rangemaster-style cooker with extractor hood, fridge, freezer and dishwasher, whilst there is a handy separate utility room in which to keep the laundry out of view of unexpected visitors who may drop by. If one ventures up to the first floor, the galleried landing provides access to the three generous double bedrooms, with the master bedroom boasting a good-sized three piece en-suite shower room, with the remainder of the family being suitably spoiled by the sumptuously appointed family bathroom, which is fitted with a four piece suite in classic white, comprising of WC, vanity wash hand basin, free-standing bath and separate shower cubicle. Externally, the property enjoys lawned gardens to both the front and rear, with the rear being of a particularly good-size and with a block-paved patio in which to enjoy a spot of lunch or a few glasses of wine in those long summer evenings, with the high degree of privacy ensuring that one never feels as though they are going to be disturbed. Off-road parking facilities are also on hand, as well as secure parking within the garage. We would highly recommend an early viewing to avoid disappointment.
