Full description


As soon as one sets their eyes on this impossibly pretty home, its spellbinding beauty enchants your heart. The quintessential English country home, this idyllic stone detached farmhouse exudes character and style in abundance; the epitome of the chocolate box home, which couldn’t look any more delightful if it had roses around the door and a white picket fence. Positively brimming with charm and individuality, Red Rock Farm occupies a delightful position on the banks of the Leeds Liverpool Canal, amidst the beautiful West Lancashire countryside in the stunning rural village of Haigh, a picturesque setting which has proven consistently desirable by those looking for a haven from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

The canal is only a short meander away and, a little further afield, the stunning Haigh Hall Country Park, spanning hundreds of acres and home to Haigh Hall, one of the most beautiful stately homes in the North-West of England, and so one is never without a quiet space in which to take a leisurely stroll with the dogs to relax away the stresses of the day. Whilst the picturesque setting could convince even the most hardened sceptic that one is in the deepest depths of the countryside, this home is far from isolated, with the bustling village centre of Standish approximately a mile away, providing a host of shops and amenities, as well as excellent schools and transport links via the M6 motorway, proving that having that peaceful home in the country does not necessarily have to mean isolation. 

The property itself offers an expansive floor plan arranged over two inviting levels, which affords in excess of 2,710 square feet of accommodation, which includes a superb detached annex, measuring circa 230 square feet and includes a kitchenette and three piece shower room, creating a wonderfully flexible space which could be utilised for a plethora of purposes, the most obvious of which being a self-contained annex for a dependent relative, but also could be a study for those who require some space to work from home, a garden room/play room or, as in the case of our clients, a home gymnasium. 

The main property enchants one’s heart from the first step across the threshold, the feeling of heritage and tradition infusing into one’s consciousness and warming the soul with its personality and rustic accents, which include traditional fireplaces, exposed beams and latched doors, entering via the entrance porch and proceeding through into the first of five reception rooms – a 15’ sitting room – complete with stunning stone fireplace with inset solid fuel burner, a must for any country home. The feeling of character, however, is not felt more so than in the main 16’ lounge, with its extensive beams, exposed brickwork and another glorious fireplace, conjuring images of cosy winter evenings huddles around a roaring fire, whilst the open layout through to the 16’ dining room with its stone flagged floor, creates a real feeling of space, whilst being bathed in natural light via the multi-aspect windows, which include direct access to the garden when one is in the mood for an al-fresco after-dinner cocktail or two in those warm summer evenings. 

The 15’ cinema room provides a contemporary contrast with a 150” Motorised built in ceiling 3D HD projector home cinema screen with surround sound.  There is a further recreation area located directly off the 18’ kitchen, which provides an ideal open plan kitchen/family room and a wonderfully sociable environment with a real hub of the home ambiance; fitted with an extensive range of quality wall and base units in cream with contrasting granite work surfaces, and incorporating a central island and a host of integrated appliances, including high level double electric oven, halogen hob with extractor canopy and dishwasher. There is also a separate utility room and a useful two piece cloakroom/WC. If one ventures up to the first floor, five excellent bedrooms will be revealed – four doubles and a single – with a smartly appointed three piece en-suite shower room to bedroom two and the potential to create a further en-suite shower room to bedroom three, which is presently utilised as a walk-in wardrobe. The remainder of the family are suitably spoiled by the sumptuous family bathroom, which is fitted with a contemporary four piece suite in classic white, comprising of WC, wall-mounted wash hand basin, free-standing bath and separate shower cubicle. 

Externally, the leafy position against a mature woodland backdrop is a delight, affording an excellent degree of privacy and seclusion, with good-sized lawned gardens encompassing the property and a stone block-paved patio, which provides a romantic setting for a spot of brunch or perhaps a relaxing glass of champagne after a stressful day in the office. Electrically operated gates provide vehicular access to the rear, providing secure parking for those with a caravan or boat to accommodate, whilst there is also a detached triple garage and a useful workshop. We have no doubt that this outstanding home will be in extremely high demand, and we would strongly recommend an early viewing to avoid disappointment.
