Full description


If one is searching for something a little more specialised, an individual home occupying its own unique place in the market, then this fabulous detached character residence may well suit one’s niche requirements, set in six acres of land and stables, which will be perfect for those searching for a home with equestrian facilities, as well as the opportunity for annexed accommodation in which one can accommodate a relative who requires their own private living space, but with the reassurance of being within the family unit, such as a teenager or grandparent, or simply could be incorporated into the remainder of the accommodation to create one large family home.

Discreetly hidden away amidst its delightful country backdrop and affording an excellent degree of privacy, this substantial five bed stone-built cottage would not look out of place on a picture postcard, with one wistful gaze upon its charming chocolate box exterior being sufficient to melt the heart of the beholder. Positively overflowing with character, this idyllic dwelling is the epitome of the country home, sitting proudly within its extensive plot within the beautiful parish of Wrightington, an area as renowned for its blend of prestige country homes, as its picturesque West Lancashire countryside. However, despite its country credentials, the property is far from remote, with ease of access to the abundance of local shops and amenities within the neighbouring villages of Shevington and Standish, as well as ease of access to the M6 motorway, ensuring the commuter can enjoy convenient travel throughout the North-West and then retire to their rural retreat after a stressful day in the office, perhaps partaking in a relaxing walk with the family over the adjoining countryside. 

This striking home certainly integrates seamlessly with its salubrious surroundings, occupying a most imposing position within this exclusive location, whilst the feeling of scale is mirrored internally, with few homes able to compete with the expansive floor plan and generously proportioned living spaces which afford in excess of 3,425 square feet of accommodation arranged over two floors, which even the largest of families would struggle to outgrow. Delightful rustic accents are abound, with characterful fireplaces, exposed beams and traditional latched doors to mention a few of the highlights, which infuse a real feeling of tradition and heritage of a bygone era. 

The internal accommodation briefly comprises of: Main house – entrance porch, 13’ lounge with open fireplace, second lounge, 14’ sitting room, 14’ kitchen/diner – fitted with a range of country-style wall and base units in cream, with contrasting solid wood work surfaces and featuring a traditional AGA and Belfast sink; rear hallway, four first floor double bedrooms and a smart three piece shower room. Annex – entrance porch, 15’ lounge with feature solid fuel burner, inner hallway, 14’ kitchen/diner – fitted with a range of Oak-effect country-style wall and base units with contrasting black laminated work surfaces and featuring an integrated Rangemaster-style cooker; rear porch, cloakroom/WC, 13’ double bedroom and a modern three piece bathroom. 

Externally, the substantial plot ensures the property is situated well back from the main road and approached by a gravelled driveway with traditional farmyard-style gate, which provides off-road parking for a large number of vehicles, as well as access to the detached double garage. The formal gardens consist of a lawned front garden with mature trees and shrubs to the perimeter and, to the rear, an enclosed low-maintenance garden, which is lovely and private and provides an ideal space in which to enjoy a relaxing glass of wine after a tough day in the office, or perhaps an impromptu barbeque, when the weather allows. Within the six acre plot, the property also boasts three stables, a tack room and a ménage. This individual property simply must be viewed to appreciate the size of the accommodation and picturesque location. This property is offered with NO CHAIN
