Found in a delightful location along Bonds Lane on the edge of the village of Elswick, the property is tucked away yet is within walking distance of the amenities of the village. Elswick is a charming village which has two public houses, a school (between Elswick and Great Eccleston), ice cream parlour/café, park, village hall, village shop and a place of worship. Comprehensive schools are found in Garstang and Poulton with private schools in Lytham St Annes, Kirkham and Thornton-Cleveleys.
For those equestrian buyers who are likely to want to compete or attend clinics, Myerscough College is just a short drive away.
Gates open from Bonds Lane into the Equestrian Centre where there is an expanse of hard standing used as parking area ahead of the equestrian facilities and the dwelling. This is a fantastic open space with plenty of parking and lots of room to turn larger vehicles and trailers.
The welcoming detached four bedroom single storey dwelling offers spacious accommodation and is sat in beautifully kept tended gardens which include hardscaping along with raised beds, plant, vegetable and flowerbeds all creating a charming setting for the house. Encompassed by a fence, providing good separation from the business element to the property. There is plenty of private parking in front of the house ahead of a double garage and workshop.
The front door opens into a spacious entrance hall where there are two storage cupboards and doors off to various ground floor rooms.
The hub of this super home is likely to be the dining kitchen which has the benefit of a vaulted ceiling, Velux windows and windows out to the rear along with patio doors to the front of the property, flooding the room with natural light. There is a range of shaker style kitchen units with a timber surface above, complimenting the exposed beams. A point for a range cooker is provided along with extractor over and a point for an American fridge freezer. The dishwasher is integrated as is the microwave. There is a door out to the rear gardens and doors leading through to the lounge.
Doors are provided through to a lovely bright lounge which has windows to three elevations and is a fantastic spacious room. The study is at the front of the property and has views over the front gardens.
There are four well proportioned bedrooms in total along with a family bathroom. The family bathroom has a bath, wash handbasin in a unit, shower, WC and a heated towel rail. The Principal Bedroom includes a dressing room and shower ensuite. The remainder of the bedrooms are served by the family bathroom.
There is an L shaped brick under tile building which currently houses the former equestrian reception area which is complete with kitchenette and bathroom. This has been used for temporary accommodation at times however there is no planning consent in place for this use. The cattery has a reception area and 15 pens. We are informed by the vendors that there is currently a 5 star licence. This business has generated a good income and more information is available from the agents offices.
The equestrian facilities are fantastic. The main 8 bay steel frame barn is centred around an indoor school with a viewing gallery, a waxed sand surface which we understand from the vendors was re-surfaced around 5 years ago. Along one side of this building there are 12 stables and 7 stables and tack room on the opposite side. There is also plenty of space for storage. To the rear of this building there is a floodlit outdoor menage (27m x 42m) with a sand and rubber surface.
The main yard has 23 stables which are positioned around a concrete yard, tack room, shower and solarium. The top yard includes 5 further stables, tack room and kennels, this area is ideal for those who would like to keep their own horses more privately. There is also a lunge arena which is an exceptional advantage to the equestrian facilities.
The main brick built reception building includes a kitchenette, bathroom, staff room, office along with wash facilities and WC which is accessed from outside. Adjoining is the area currently used as a boarding cattery.
The property is set in 9.28 acres (3.7 ha) or thereabouts and includes a range of grazing paddocks.
