Lower Wild Boar Farm Barn - Converted and lovingly renovated by the owners of renowned furniture company, Carl Josef, Lower Wild Boar Farm Barn must be one of the most stunning barn conversions ever. No expense was spared when this barn was lovingly restored to an exceptionally high standard by the current owners fifteen years ago and the result is a truly beautiful family home.
Offered for sale as one property, the house contains a self-contained granny flat and is set in extensive grounds. The house comes with fishing rights and is set in beautiful gardens complete with a lake.
As you approach the property from the road, you access through electric gates and a beautiful large cobbled driveway area leads to the house and the three garages. The stunning lake and stream are immediately visible, set in scenic gardens and landscaped areas which have all been excellently maintained.
In addition to the stunning gardens, a walled garden area which can also be accessed directly from the swimming pool, offers a beautiful outside space.
Entering the property you are immediately struck by the stunning staircase. Handcrafted by the owner’s company’s craftsmen in oak with individual bespoke hand crafting, this sets the scene for the entire property. Beautiful bespoke oak furniture runs throughout, from the stunning handcrafted kitchen to the sweeping staircase, bedroom furniture, solid oak flooring and numerous panelled rooms. All Carl Josef and all beautifully bespoke.
The large swimming pool is a real focal point to the house. Set in a spacious area with high vaulted ceiling and beams, it is a stunning room that makes a real impression. Complete with wave machine and sauna, the swimming pool area offers the perfect retreat for exercise and relaxation.
In addition to the beautiful handcrafted kitchen, downstairs also offers a master lounge adorned with stunning walnut wood panelling to match the rest of the house and a study/lounge area with hand carved stone fireplace and projector, offering the option of creating a cinema room. A bar is also located in this room, again sculpted out of walnut.
The kitchen offers casual dining or the beautiful oak panelled dining room offers a more formal dining option.
In total the property offers 6 bedrooms, all with handcrafted furniture along with six bathrooms. Four of the bedrooms are located in the main house and two in the self-contained granny flat. From the master bedroom to those located on the second floor, all have been done to an exceptionally high standard and contain bespoke furniture.
The décor of the house is stunning throughout and of the very highest quality. In addition to the exquisite bespoke furniture, everything is of a similar high quality, from the carpets to the curtains and all in a superb style that continues all through the house and makes this an absolutely beautiful property.
In addition to a beautiful open space kitchen/living area, the self-contained granny flat, which has its own front door for access, is decorated in a similar style to the main house, and offers two separate bedrooms and large shower room/WC and vanity unit in maple. Whether used for an elderly relative or as space for visiting guests, as is the case with the current family, this is a fantastic additional space that can be utilised in a variety of ways.
Included in the asking are all the superb quality carpets, rugs, light fittings and electric curtains (with the exception of the bathrooms and pool sun lounge). Also available by separate negotiation is the option to purchase any freestanding furniture and accessories.
The owners are sad to leave this perfect family home. When they first bought it, cattle were still living in it and they painstakingly converted it to the stunning home it is today. They’ve enjoyed fifteen years in the house as a family but with their children moving away they feel the need to downsize. Testament to how much they love the area, they aren’t moving far at all. With excellent schools nearby and Garstang, Preston and Lancaster all within easy reach. The motorway is only 5 miles away. Lower Wild Boar Farm Barn is within a 40 minute drive to the National Park Lake District and Manchester City Centre is also within easy driving distance. This really is a fantastic place to live and they will miss the house greatly.
