Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This charming farmhouse and adjoining barn conversion is situated in the hamlet of Out Rawcliffe, just outside the village of Hambleton and close to the market town of Poulton-Le-Fylde. Surrounded by open countryside and boasting views towards the Bowland Fells, Hales Hall is believed to date back to the early 1800s. In the same ownership for the past 18 years, the property has been much updated and the former derelict barn that adjoins the property has been converted into a one bedroom annexe. This presents ample opportunity, whether that be for further conversion into a separate dwelling, holiday letting, workspace or studio. The main house provides five double bedrooms, two reception rooms and a fantastic farmhouse style dining kitchen with a separate utility room. The separate attached barn houses two large reception rooms and a vast double bedroom with ensuite, this area has the potential to offer a variety of uses. Outside, the property is surrounded by neatly kept gardens and there is also a paddock split into a natural garden and a fruit orchard.

Out Rawcliffe is a small hamlet approximately two miles from the village of Hambleton where there are a range of local shops and a pub. The area is popular with cyclists, with easy access to routes that range from quiet country roads to the challenging Bowland Fells. There is a nursery school in Out Rawcliffe and a primary school in Hambleton. For those of secondary school age, the property sits within the catchment area for the renowned Lancaster Boys and Girls Grammar Schools. For a full range of amenities, the market town of Poulton Le Fylde is just approximately four miles from the property where the train station provides access to both Manchester Airport and Blackpool, ideal for commuting.

The traditional stone surrounded entrance door opens into a neatly presented entrance hall with attractive tiled floors by Fired Earth. Tucked away at the end of the property, there is a lovely snug which enjoys a dual aspect and French doors open out onto the rear patio. In keeping with the charming aesthetics of the farmhouse, the room enjoys an inset brick fireplace with a flagged hearth housing an electric stove. The entrance hall continues to lead into the lounge that features a grand original stone fireplace with a large multi-fuel stove, perfect for the winter months. This primary reception room is again, bright and welcoming with a dual aspect over the front and rear. The large farmhouse style dining kitchen is easily the heart of this idyllic family home, with a two door AGA set within an tiled inglenook with a exposed stone surround providing a warming atmosphere. There are a range of fitted wooden cupboards and drawers and complementary wall and base units with granite worktops that encompass a double Belfast sink. There is ample space for a dining table and chairs, an under stairs larder cupboard and original stone flagged floors. Adjoining the kitchen, there is a good sized study with views over the front and the stone flagged floors continue into a rear entrance hall and further into a handy utility room where there is space for a washing machine, dryer, fridge and freezer. The rear entrance hall enjoys external access into the garden and is ideal for muddy boots and coats. It also provides internal access into the converted barn.

Stairs lead up from both the kitchen and the sitting room to the first floor. Taking them from the lounge brings you to a well presented shower room featuring Lefroy Brooks sanitary ware and Fired Earth tiling to the shower. It also leads to the first of the five double bedrooms on offer within the main house. Leading on to the master bedroom which boasts lovely views towards the Bowland Fells. An inner hall serves as a dressing area to this bedroom and onto the house bathroom. Equally well presented, the bathroom features a freestanding clawfoot bath with a shower over. It is also in essence a Jack and Jill bathroom as a door leads to the second landing which can also be accessed via the staircase just off the kitchen. This is where you will find the final three double bedrooms, the perfect set up for families looking for a little extra privacy. 

The Barn Accessed internally from the rear entrance hall and externally via two doors within, the barn was converted from ruin in 2005 to create a flexible space that is ideal for a range of uses. At present, the two large reception rooms and ensuite large bedroom are utilised as an entertaining space, studio and guest suite. The first of the two reception rooms could be further developed into an open plan dining kitchen leaving you with the equally spacious and impressive sitting room which features high vaulted ceilings and exposed wooden trusses. There is even private access via double glazed doors and driveway for the barn which would be ideal for both holiday letting or converting into a separate dwelling. Also on the ground floor there is a shower room and stairs leading up from the sitting room to a gallery landing into the large bedroom space. This wonderfully expansive and private guest accommodation has an ensuite bathroom housing a contemporary freestanding bath but affords plenty of space to split into two or three good sized bedrooms if preferred. 

Outside Situated along a private lane, surrounded by local farmland and countryside, the pebbled driveway affords plentiful parking around the turning circle. At the rear of the property there is a neatly kept lawn with well stocked borders and landscaped area featuring a patio, flower beds and a lovely seating area ideal for alfresco dining. A flagged courtyard also provides access into a good sized garden store and a ginnel area that leads around the front driveway. The garden extends around to the other side of the property where a garden gate leads across the private lane and into a separate paddock of approximately 1 acre. This has been separated into two halves, the first serves as a lawn area filled with native plantings to attract the local wildlife and a built in fire pit perfect for entertaining during the summer months. The second half serves as a wonderful fruit orchard with a selection of apple, pear and cherry trees and soft fruit cage providing an array of berries and rhubarb. This is the perfect area for families to enjoy together, whether that be relaxing in the peaceful surroundings, growing your own fruit and veg or keeping sheep, chickens or even a pony.
