We adore this property ! The former farmhouse has been extended into the attached barn, creating a substantial home which oozes character. The house is set in 1.4 acres (0.56 hectares) or thereabouts and has a fine pair of stone barns along with garaging to really set this property apart.. There is scope to alter/convert to suit the needs of the buyer and provide flexibility to them, subject to gaining any necessary consents. There is so much potential yet to unlock giving such an exciting opportunity.

Set back from the road, this superb property is in a wonderful location, with a real rural feel and offers good levels of privacy yet being just a short drive from Fulwood and Broughton, it is the best of both worlds. Preston City Centre is a short drive, as is junction 32 of the M6 and 31A of the M55, meaning that the property is well located for commuters. A mainline train station is also found in Preston.

The property is entered from a privately owned, tree-lined lane off Cow Hill and opens out to a tarmacadam drive and to a stone set area at the front of the house, which provides plenty of parking. As you pull up, it is easy to see how presentable this beautiful property is and the fantastic setting in which it sits. The scope and potential are also immediately evident.

The front door sits in a fabulous picture window, the door opens into an impressive dual height entrance hall, where there are exposed beams and stonework, a theme which continues in various parts of the house. The large picture window to the front and a window to the rear ensure that this is a bright and welcoming space.

The main lounge is a superb room, made special by the incredible fireplace, exposed beams and windows out to both the front and rear. Imagine yourself in this room at Christmas... a joy.

The study is positioned to one side and has windows both front and rear, this is open to the office which has a window to the side and a velux window, again ensuring a bright working space. These 2 rooms are well located away from the main hustle and bustle of this super home, the perfect place to work from home or spend some quiet time—with enough room for two comfortable work spaces.

The rear hall is likely to be used for day-to-day entry and has access to the Dining Kitchen, utility room, dining room and wet room. The Dining kitchen is likely to be the hub of this home, with a range of kitchen units with contrasting work surfaces. There is a 1.5 sink and drainer, an electric range cooker, an integrated dishwasher is included. This part of the home along with the garden room benefits from underfloor heating. Off the kitchen, there is a handy pantry, perfect for additional storage. There are lovely views out to the gardens and part glazed doors open into the garden room. This room has a stone flagged floor and part glazed double doors to the rear patio making it ideal for outdoor entertaining.

The well-equipped utility room has a point for a washing machine and drier, a range of units and a porcelain sink. The wet room shower room is next door, these two rooms and access through the rear hall make this part of the house very practical – perfect for a house in the country such as this!

The staircase rises to the first-floor landing, part of which is galleried over the entrance hall. There are 4 bedrooms in total. The Principal bedroom has both a dressing area and a shower ensuite. The family bathroom includes a roll top, cast iron bath, pedestal wash basin and wc with part timber panel walls. An airing cupboard is also found in here. A further shower room is also provided. The landing is served by 2 sets of stairs and there is potential to alter to create annex style in one end of the house.

One bedroom sits within the converted hayloft with access given across gallery landing through a lovely original stone archway.

Outside, there is the “middle barn” this is stone built and is predominantly used as storage on the ground floor, above there is annex accommodation, which takes an open plan form and includes a kitchen area, bathroom, storage cupboard and log burner. There are vaulted ceilings and exposed beams making a charming addition to the property.

The further large, stone barn is sizeable and has scope to alter/convert subject to gaining any necessary consents. Newly constructed in 2005 by the current vendors, this barn is of stone under slate construction, and is positioned to one side of the plot.

There is a double garage positioned closer to the main house. The well presented gardens include an expanse of lawn and flower beds, all beautifully presented and in keeping with a house of this nature

Surrounding the property is an expanse of private gardens, holding a variety of shrubs and trees. There is extensive parking available by the rear barn and in front of the property.
