With over 3580 square feet of opulent living space, four double bedrooms and three bathrooms this visually spectacular contemporary home is the ultimate in rural living. Surrounded by lush green lawns, mature trees, open countryside and canal side walks, the idyllic location perfectly complements the open, airy, indoor–outdoor character of the house which has been designed to maximise the gorgeous open views. The grounds also include a detached brick built building which offers huge potential for ancillary accommodation (subject to relevant planning).
Orchestrated by our client ‘Cloud House’ is a totally unique design with sleek contemporary lines and soaring windows that offer bright, open living space throughout. Constructed using the latest materials this striking Zinc-clad property is built upon a heavily engineered steel-structure with MetSec and Kingspan walls atop a seamless front and back Italian wooden “box” that invisibly incorporates the entrance and garage of the property. The homes intuitive design is flawlessly combined with luxurious fixtures in the easy-flowing living and entertaining spaces, which are ideal for relaxing or hosting guests in style. Exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail characterise the home and its thoughtfully considered architecture creates distinct areas for work and play.
At ground level, the superb living, dining, and kitchen areas are integrated by a magnificent open-flowing floor plan, where double-volume ceilings and walls of glass come together to create marvellous, light-filled family space. The sunken lounge is mimicked by the outside seating area and combines with the fabulous kitchen and dining space to provide an ideal spot for effortless entertaining, benefiting from outlooks via huge windows over the South facing gardens.
A beautiful ’floating’ staircase leads to the first floor where there are four stylish bedrooms, a four piece family bathroom, a four piece master en-suite and a three piece guests en-suite all finished with contemporary sanitary ware. Also on the upper level is a laid back lounge area and a feature glass bridge which leads to a pop-out work desk/study area and open glazing from floor to roof exposing the open fields to the rear.
The property is accessed via electronically operated gates that lead to a forecourt parking area and and integral double garage. To the rear there are well kept gardens that border open greenbelt farmland. The plot is extremely private and in addition to the main house is an outbuilding which presents a development opportunity for an additional dwelling - perhaps for a gymnasium, office and/or extra bedroom. The aspects back towards the property are striking with the property blending perfectly with its rural surroundings, interesting design features include the offset angle of the Easterly wall which is in keeping with the shape of the garden and the integrated gutter and drainage system leaves observers confused as to where the guttering for the house could be.
The area is renowned for agricultural traditions and whilst in a rural location the property is far from remote with the bustling market town of Ormskirk and the Victorian seaside resort of Southport within a 15 minute drive and Liverpool just 30 minute way with rail links to the city also easily accessible. The property is also ideally situated for families with Scarisbrick Hall, a highly regarded independent school, being under four miles away.
