Property Description

Full description

A superb development opportunity set in a beautiful rural position for the creation of up to two dwellings.

Ideally placed for access to the motorway and rail connections. Planning Consent has been granted by West Lancashire Council by way of Application Reference 2015/0857/FUL.

Set in 1.8 acres or thereabouts.Richardsons Farm is a development opportunity set in a beautiful rural position for the creation of up to two substantial residential properties.


Ideally placed for access to the motorway and rail connections. There are also a number of pubs and eateries within the area as well as the beautiful surrounding countryside.


Planning consent has been granted by West Lancashire Council Reference 2015/0857/FUL in August 2015 for redevelopment of Richardsons Farm including alterations and extensions to the existing farmhouse, barn conversion and associated external works.


Full rights of access exist initially along the publically maintained Finch Lane and then along the track leading up to the property itself. Upon site can be found a substantial stone built barn along with attached brick barn (with potential to remove if size is too great) as well as the existing stone built farmhouse which is at the Southerly end of the plot.


The outbuildings and extensions to the west and south side of the barn are to be demolished which will create a substantial plot.


Overall the private grounds to the entire property will total approximately 1.8 acres.


The Farmhouse
The existing farmhouse is to be reworked inside and extended to one side over two storeys by way of the planning permission. There is also a proposed two storey extension to the rear which will be delivered by way of permitted development. The accommodation will cover approximately 2114 sq ft (196.4 sq ms) of accommodation and will have parking to the side and gardens on three sides.


The main covered entrance will lead into the Central Hallway with stairs off from which access can be gained into the Living Room and further onto the Garden Room/Study extension with predominantly glazed walls. The house will flow with connectivity between all main spaces including the very spacious Kitchen with bi-fold doors giving views and access to the rear as well as the stunning rear extension which on the ground floor is currently proposed to house a feature Dining Room but is equally suited to any sort of reception use. There will be further bi-fold doors in this location with views to the south. The ground floor will be completed by Utility/Pantry with its own separate w.c.


To the first floor is the landing with feature central void off which can be found 4 Double Bedrooms, bedroom 2 having its own En-Suite facility and bedrooms 3 and 4 sharing the Family Bathroom. The Master Bedroom is set to the rear within the new extension which will have a feature vaulted ceiling, glazed wall and Juliette balcony as well as its own En-Suite facility.


The Barn
This sizeable barn conversion will be able to provide up to almost 4,600 sq ft of accommodation over 2 floors, within the 2 buildings. Certain individuals may wish to develop the barn without the additional brick extension but any variation upon the plans such as moving the garaging away from the barn itself would be subject to any necessary planning consent. The accommodation as proposed at present includes a traditional barn Entrance Hallway with void above, access to the W.C and Study and double doors leading through to the Living Room and also through to the Dining Room. The Dining Kitchen has a well-placed Utility/Pantry and there is also a sizeable Snug Sitting Room. The attached brick barn will house the Boot Room, Second W.C, Plant Room and Garaging/Work space as well as a Garden Store accessed from outside. Above will be a Games Room and further storage.


Within the main barn there are proposed to be 5 Bedrooms all of which will be double. The Master Bedroom has an En-Suite shower room and a Dressing Area and stairs leading to wardrobes. There are 3 Further En-Suite Bedrooms 1 of which has a second floor galleried Study/Dressing Area and there is also a Family Bathroom.


The accommodation could be rearranged to suit an individual's own requirements subject to structural limitations.
