Property description

The moment its eponymous gates signal your arrival at Ashurst Hall you know you've arrived somewhere utterly special... this magnificent family estate is one of the most outstanding properties in the North West, a private, Grade II listed, 9000 square foot country home unlike any other in the region. Occupying a dream position amongst approximately 8 acres of pristine land and gardens with breath taking panoramic vistas towards Parbold hill and the Fylde coast beyond, this special home is full of character, rich in history and majestically reflects the exquisiteness of its surroundings.

With a stone built gate house, detached ancillary building and a main house brimming with period features the sale offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a property of unparalleled luxury. Recently extensively renovated to a very high standard the property affords a wealth of beautifully appointed living space with grand rooms that boast an array of high quality fixtures and fittings. The glorious principal rooms are a study in craftsmanship and detail and set the stage for unforgettable entertaining, whether hosting relaxed events or stately gatherings.

An elegant yet comfortable formality extends through the property with its majestic reception hallway inviting guests through to the home's main living areas including a fabulous 33' lounge with stone fireplace, a formal dining room, a drawing room/games room with ornate wood panelling, a relaxed sitting room, glass roof conservatory, and a brand new dining kitchen with a comprehensive array of hand crafted units with bevelled granite tops, a centre island, Aga range cooker (which has been completely refurbished and repainted) and integrated appliances. The ground floor is rounded off with a handy cloaks/WC and a practical utility room. On the first floor there are six fabulous bedrooms including a lavish master bedroom with en suite bathroom & dressing room, a guest bedroom with sitting room & en suite bathroom, four further bedrooms and two family bathrooms.

Beautifully integrated into the surrounding landscape, the estate consists of four buildings including the main house, gate house, ancillary building and garage. The sublime grounds surround the house with the gated driveway giving access to a sweeping cobbled driveway that leads to a large parking area. To the rear the perfectly manicured lawns are bordered with mature planting and include an ornamental pond, a professional grade tennis court and a paved sun terrace which is just perfect for outdoor entertaining on a grand scale. Here you will be able to enjoy countless numbers of barbeques and some alfresco dining whilst admiring the evening sunset, the views are simply wonderful and stretch as far as the eye can see.

The formal gardens extend to around an acre with a further 7 acres of adjoining land which also has its own separate direct access - ideal for the equestrian enthusiast. The self-contained ancillary building covers nearly 1100 square feet and is finished to a very high standard and offers great additional recreational and working space - presently used as a gymnasium/cinema room and separate office. The gate house offers a further 522 square feet with three rooms which are presently utilised as a gardening store and workshops.

Dalton is a rural parish and the character of the village remains unchanged with pastures, hills, dales, woods, streams, lanes, ponds and hedgerows criss crossed with footpaths that meander past the neighbouring farms and prestige homes that nestle amidst the verdant backdrop of beautiful English countryside. The location feels lightyears from the hustle and bustle of daily life yet the wider region of villages, towns and cities are all within an easy commute, the railway station and the M6 motorway are also both on hand. For families some of the regions most highly regarded schools are close by and the many excellent amenities in nearby Parbold village ensure this unforgettable home is anything but remote.
