Full description

As soon as one sets their eyes on this impossibly pretty home, its spellbinding beauty enchants your heart. The quintessential English country cottage, this idyllic detached dwelling is the epitome of the chocolate box home, and couldn’t look any more delightful if it had roses around the door and a white picket fence. Positively brimming with charm and character, the property enjoys commanding views and stands proudly amidst its own stunning grounds of circa four acres, and comes complete with stables (with running water and seperate electricity supply), offering an exciting opportunity for the discerning buyer with an equestrian pedigree and searching for a home to accommodate their love of all things equine. 

This unique home is nestled in a quite stunning position on a quiet country lane at the heart of the West Lancashire countryside, ensuring there is never a shortage of picturesque strolls to enjoy in those long summer evenings, yet when one is looking for something a little more vibrant, the pretty market town of Ormskirk is only a short drive away, with its cosmopolitan blend of boutique shops, trendy bars and eateries, perfect for those who enjoy a hectic social calendar. Highly respected schools at both primary and secondary level, coupled with excellent transport links via rail and road, are the ultimate endorsements for an area which has much to offer the family unit. 

The property itself offers an expansive floor plan which affords in excess of 2,280 square feet of accommodation, and from the first step across the threshold it warms the soul with its inviting ambiance, the characterful reception hallway greeting you at the door with its cloaks cupboard and exposed floorboards, as well as fabulous hidden wine cellar, cleverly secreted under the floor, which makes a most unusual feature. The warm and inviting atmosphere continues in the 16’ lounge with its spindled staircase to the first floor and enhanced by the beautiful feature fireplace with its decorative surround and inset cast iron fire, conjuring images of cold winter evenings huddled around a roaring fire, whilst there is a further 13’ off-lying reception room which could be utilised for a variety of uses, i.e. a playroom for the children or, as in the case of our clients, a study for those who require some space to work from home. The 13’ dining room will be ideal for hosting those intimate dinner parties when one has the urge to entertain, being conveniently located directly off the kitchen, which at 22’ is itself able to accommodate a dining suite for more informal gatherings, and feeling like the quintessential hub of the home. 

The country-style ambiance is enhanced with accents such as the stone flooring, a beautiful AGA and double Belfast sink, whilst being comprehensively fitted with a range of wall and base units which are very much in keeping with the type of property, producing a truly authentic look. The utility room, handy two piece cloakroom/WC and side porch complete the ground floor accommodation. If one ventures up to the first floor, four bright double bedrooms will be revealed, with the master bedroom boasting an en-suite dressing room – sure to score highly with the lady of the house – as well as a private four piece shower room, with the remainder of the family being suitably catered for by the main family bathroom, being fitted with a five piece traditional suite in classic white, comprising of twin pedestal wash hand basins, WC, roll top claw foot bath and separate shower cubicle. 

Externally, the sublime plot is approached by a shingled driveway through remotely operated gates ensuring an excellent degree of privacy, and providing off-road parking facilities for a number of vehicles and the property also has three garages, two of which have overhead storage .  The formal gardens are simply heavenly, the epitome of the archetypal country garden, with swathes of manicured lawns against a mature woodland backdrop, with beautiful planted borders, an orchard, vegetable patch and a stunning greenhouse, which will be perfect for those looking for a taste of the good life. The sizeable stone patio area provides a real romantic setting in which to relax with a relaxing glass of Champagne during those long Summer evenings, or perhaps a spot of lunch, with the high degree of privacy ensuring that one never feels as though they are going to be disturbed. 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.
