Set in 11.4 acres OTA, this spectacular property was built in the 1920s and displays the glamour that you would expect from a prestigious property from this era. Importantly the focus of this beautiful property has always been to be a wonderful place to call home, but also to welcome guests, making the most of the superb entertainment area.

The house extends to some 11,000 sq. ft (approx.) with further accommodation to include a cottage, swimming pool, garaging and stables. The house retains plenty of character and as you would expect, beautiful joinery, plaster work, high ceilings and sash windows to name a few.

Double steel gates open to reveal a tarmacadam driveway which passes through a wooded area and then opens out to reveal the prestigious Ashley Hall. The driveway sweeps through to the front of the property where there is a turning circle and also through to the side where there is plenty of parking at the rear.

Substantial stone steps rise up to the double timber door which opens into an entrance vestibule an further doors open to a reception hall. This truly impressive space sets the tone for the rest of the property with stunning panelling and staircase along with a superb stone fireplace with a coat of arms over, creating a wonderful and welcoming focal point to the room. From here, the cloakroom is found off, along with a number of reception rooms.

Either side of the entrance hall, there are two reception rooms, one is currently used as a study and offers a window to two elevations along with timber panelling and a beautiful fireplace ensuring this is a bright but atmospheric room. The Louis XIV room enjoys windows to two elevations and exudes an opulence with parquet flooring and a feature fireplace.

A shower room is found off the entrance hall which includes a space for a shower, WC and pedestal wash handbasin.

The oak room has something to behold with an attractive fireplace surrounded by stunning oak panelling which continues through the room along with an oak floor which steps down into a further space. We can only imagine the entertaining that has taken place in this superb room over the years. There are glazed doors linking the oak room to the conservatory which links both the oak room and the lounge, again complementing the ability to entertain in this space.

The dining room is another elegant room which enjoys views out to the side of the property. This beautiful room enjoys an ornate fireplace and is positioned next to the dining kitchen.

The kitchen is positioned at the rear of the room and has a door through to the utility. There is a rear hall in this area and it is likely to be where a lot of the practical elements to the house are handled. A space likely used as the day to day entrance.

From the oak room there is a further glazed door into the swimming pool, which hasn’t been used for some time.

A grand staircase rises up to the first floor where there are 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms in total. The bedroom at the front of the property have attractive views over the front gardens and grounds along with one of the bathrooms. Many of the bedrooms are impressive in nature with high ceiling, intricate plaster work and tall windows.

A further staircase rises up to the second floor space where there are three further bedrooms, a lounge area and a kitchenette. There is potential for this to be used as one annex facility should this be required.

To the ground floor there is further annex accommodation. There is a large reception room which could be incorporated into the main residence or alternatively used with the annex. A door is also found through to the changing facilities associated with the swimming pool from this reception space. Beyond is a lounge, bedroom with an ensuite and a kitchenette. This would be perfect for guests or could potentially accommodate multi-generational living or could be altered to suit the buyers needs.

Attached to this annex is a double garage.
The Housekeepers Cottage and Gardeners Cottage are in a detached building which is split in two. Each has three bedrooms, a living room and a kitchen area. Again, these could be ideal for multi-generational living or could be adapted to suit the buyers needs subject to gaining any necessary consents.

The formal gardens of the property are found largely at the front and side, an impressive and attractive entrance to the property. There is a large gravel turning circle at the front and an expanse of lawn, mature woodland areas, seating areas, rose garden and pond. The property has a substantial brick wall along the roadside and plenty of mature trees providing exceptional privacy.

The grounds include an area of agricultural land which is split into two paddocks with a range of stables, tack and feed room. The property could potentially appeal to those with equestrian interests. Beyond these there are further outbuildings to include garaging, workshop and a dutch barn.

The hall is positioned in Thornton-Cleveleys and is within a short drive of a range of shops and amenities. The property is well positioned for good access to the main road and motorway network. There are a good range of schools in the area with private schools including Rossall, AKS and Kirkham Grammar School. Slightly further afield are boarding facilities at Sedburgh and Stoneyhurst
