Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

***HUGE POTENTIAL***Lund, a former Vicarage, is truly the Fylde’s HIDDEN GEM, having been in the same family for over 50 years. It is set in 3.14 ACRES of gardens and grounds and extends to 6834 sq.ft. of living accommodation. Retaining many ORIGINAL AND PERIOD FEATURES, Lund is now in need of sympathetic restoration and upgrading to bring it back to a handsome family home. The house, which dates to 1870 with later additions, is set in an EXTREMELY PRIVATE LOCATION. Lund also has the benefit of a double-height red brick BARN comprising COACH HOUSE AND STABLES extending to some 434 sq.ft. This property REALLY MUST BE VIEWED to appreciate its true potential!The property is entered via a gravelled driveway which leads through to a large parking area to the front, with mature trees surrounding the property, giving exceptional levels of privacy from Vicarage Lane.

The imposing front door opens into a delightful entrance hall which sets the scene for this wonderful house. A fireplace provides a focal point. An arched opening leads to an inner reception hall from where the staircase rises and doors lead to the dining room, study, large period cloakroom, lift room and rear corridor.

Lund has two principle reception rooms to the front of the house. The drawing room has a large bay window which allows for plenty of natural light and a marble fireplace which provides a beautiful focal point. The dining room has lovely character features, including high ceilings, shuttered windows and a mahogany fireplace. A wrap-around extension leads from the dining room and accommodates a morning room, kitchen, larder, original Victorian bathroom and pantry with flagstone floors, boiler room, store room and utility room leading back to the inner reception hall.

From the inner hall the staircase rises to a half landing to the master bedroom with shuttered windows, period hand-wash basin, fireplace and en-suite dressing room. There are 5 further bedrooms on the first floor, one with magnificent floor to ceiling windows overlooking the front.

The property has 2 large bathrooms. There is also a kitchen on the first floor, as part of the first floor accommodation has been used as a Granny Annexe.

There is a cellar and extensive attic space at the property.

Externally there is a large lawned garden and mature trees to the rear. The separate red brick barn is accessed from a rear entrance to the property off Vicarage Lane into a cobbled yard. Access to the first floor of the barn is not possible as the floors are in poor condition. Rear access to the house is gained from the cobbled yard. Off the yard is a further small plot with 3 outbuildings now in poor condition, previously used a wood sheds.
