“The barns were converted in the 1980s by an architect who used this property as a weekend retreat or holiday home. There were three dwellings created: this crew yard, a barn and a coach house. We came here twenty-three years ago, and it’s been a wonderful family home for all generations”
“The living and dining room is a fabulous space both in winter and summer, and especially if entertaining. At Christmas it is wonderful with the double-sided fireplace, and in warm weather opening up all the sliding doors makes it perfect for connecting with the outside”
“We converted what was the garage into the completely self-contained section at one end. It has underfloor heating downstairs and is now a very useful extra space for accommodation with the mezzanine bedroom.” Converted in a contemporary way, it features a spiral staircase and a modern Barbas, circular, gas-fired ‘log-burner’. “The separate, oak-framed double garage was built recently by Lancashire Oak, to be in keeping with the property, and for storage if not vehicles!”
“The entrance gates were installed by the previous architect owner from a local firm called Openings. They make you feel very secure, but in all the years I’ve been here we’ve never had any issues in that way, I’ve always felt extremely safe”
“We have very nice neighbours; they are there if you want them, but we tend to keep ourselves to ourselves. There’s a lovely young family in the barn and through lockdown we heard lots of happy sounds from the little boy coming from behind the hedge!”
“I love my vegetable garden down the side of the property, which is now more of a wild place attracting lots of lovely insects. We managed to buy that piece of land when the property next door was being sold. I absolutely love it and will miss it so much. It has big-headed daisies, hollyhocks, foxgloves and roses and smells divine in summer when the flowers are in bloom!”
“It’s a wonderful place to live – so tranquil and private – it’s like being on holiday all the time. We were so happy here during lockdown I couldn’t bear the thought of moving but the time has come, and I am now ready to go, but not far - only next door!
