Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Handsome modern small private estate of nearly two acres on the northern fringe of Preston and countryside with principal house and separate detached bungalow.

Description

Houghton House Farm is a substantial modern residence, a small estate, with the superb principal house, an additional detached single storey property with its own driveway and garage and a garden room currently utilised as a gym but perfect as a separate office if needed. There are a range of further outbuildings, mainly for garden and storage use.

The house has well planned and substantially extended accommodation which includes a magnificent new living dining kitchen which extends across the east side of the house with wide bifold doors to the main kitchen dining area, patio doors to the living area and a French door to the garden room. This is the perfect indoor/outdoor home for entertaining whilst enjoying the wildlife on the sizeable pond.

The reception areas are equally impressive including a reception hall with basket weave oak flooring and a bespoke oak staircase, a fireplace and doors off to the principal reception rooms. These include a lavishly appointed triple aspect drawing room with two arched windows and a plaster moulded ceiling, a marble fireplace and hearth with an Adam style surround.

Flexibility is offered by a ground floor guest or staff bedroom with an en suite bathroom created from the former dining room, now created within the living kitchen. A study or library has a dual aspect bay window, olive wood flooring and a fireplace with a beaten copper canopy. The ceiling is again corniced and has plaster mouldings.

The living dining kitchen is simply amazing. With a triple aspect over the gardens, beautifully appointed with over size porcelain tiled floors and two roof lanterns this is light, airy and perfect entertaining space on a grand scale. Adorned with a comprehensive range of Siemens appliances and Liebherr fridges and freezers, dishwashers and quartz surfaces to the large island with twin sinks and a large gas hob with a downdraught extractor. The main island has a breakfast bar for at least five and a second matching bar area has seating for three, with wine fridges to the rear and its own sink and dishwasher. A coffee/appliance/breakfast garage conceals this equipment.

The dining area has seating for 16 and overlooks the gardens and pond with full width bifold doors opening to a wide terrace. The living area has a raised limestone fireplace, glass fronted and patio doors open to the garden and terrace. An integrated sound system extends throughout the living kitchen and extends outside to the terrace.

A second kitchen/laundry room lies off the kitchen with an integrated oven and hob, granite surfaces and a range of fitted cupboards.

The family entrance lies to the right of the garage and opens to a hall with boot cupboards and an internal door to the attached double garage. A cloakroom with wc lies off and a second staircase leads up to the well-appointed cinema room and bar. This triple aspect room has a screen and projector and comms/storage cupboards. This room could equally well serve as a sixth bedroom if needed.

The main staircase, off the reception hall, leads up to a generous landing off which there are four principal bedroom suites, all with fitted mirror fronted wardrobes and three with separate baths and walk in showers. The master suite has a dual aspect.

The detached bungalow within the grounds is fantastic additional space for guests, staff, family or dependents and has its own driveway access of the main gated drive. Superbly appointed and with PV panels, it has one of the highest efficiency ratings we have seen. It overlooks the gardens and pond and includes a large living dining kitchen with a triple aspect, granite topped surfaces, integrated appliances and a range cooker. A shower room/cloakroom and a large bedroom with a range of fitted wardrobes which could be sub divided to create two bedrooms. There is a garage adjoining the driveway.

The property has a garden room currently used as a gym but equally suited to a separate office from the main house and there are a range of further outbuildings and stores including a generator room with a diesel generator. Our clients previously had planning permission for a ‘Huff’ style house in the grounds for which planning permission has now lapsed. Preston Planning No: 06/2017/0424.

The grounds of the property are beautifully landscaped and private extending in all to about 1.88 acres. There are many specimen trees and shrubs, extensive lawns and the stocked pond. The long sweeping driveway is gated with automated gates. The property has a security system and CCTV.

Services: The property has mains electricity, gas and water. Private drainage system.

Location

Fulwood lies on the northern fringe of Preston and Lancashire countryside and is well placed for access to the M55 and M6, the Ribble Valley and the thriving city centre. The railway station is a 15 minute drive away and places Manchester from 33 mins and London Euston from 2hrs 18 mins.

Leisure and amenities are available both locally and in the city, with Preston Golf Course, Booths supermarket, Preston College and the Royal Preston Hospital close by and many restaurants, bistros and bars in the city.

There are multi-denominational schools within reach and well regarded private schools include Kirkham Grammar School in Preston, Westholme in Blackburn, Stonyhurst in Clitheroe and Rossall in Fleetwood.

Although there is ongoing residential development of land close by Houghton House Farm is a pleasant oasis set behind a sizeable pond and within its nearly two acres of gated and well screened grounds.
