Full description

Occupying a simply stunning plot at the heart of the highly desirable village of Bretherton, this magnificent five bed detached barn conversion and its similarly prestigious neighbours form part of an illustrious row of individual residences which are so often the recipients of wistful glances by passers-by, being extremely well regarded and boasting substantial plots, set well back from this leafy country lane within the breath-taking West Lancashire countryside. This sympathetic conversion has lost none of its original character and charm, being filled with gorgeous rustic accents which acknowledge its agricultural origins, integrated seamlessly with all the modern appointments one would expect of a luxury home. The salubrious location never leaves one in any doubt that they are in the country, with fabulous countryside views to the rear and a pleasant aspect over the grounds of St. John The Baptist Church to the front elevation, with the village itself being renowned for its pleasing lifestyle and quality way of life. In reality, however, the area is far from remote, with the neighbouring village of Croston benefiting from a host of welcoming public houses and eateries, and the towns of Chorley and Leyland within a short drive, both of which boast an abundance of shops and amenities when one is looking for something a touch more vibrant. Excellent local schools are conveniently on hand, which is always an important consideration with any home of this type, with Bretherton Endowed C.E. Primary School just a short leisurely stroll away, cementing the area’s fine credentials as a perfect place to raise one’s family. 

The accommodation itself extends to in excess of an impressive 3,610 square feet in total, affording levels of space which will struggle to be matched, whilst the light-filled living spaces, quality finish and beautiful standard of presentation cannot fail to impress even the most discerning of purchasers; entering via the generous entrance hallway, the size of which makes an immediate impact, as does the warm and inviting ambiance, both of which set the tone for what is to come. The old and the new combine with the stone flagged floor and exposed stone walls blending with the contemporary handmade Oak staircase with its glazed balustrade, whilst there is handy two piece cloakroom/WC, which is always useful in any home with little ones. One continues through into the 18’ dining room, which is a perfect setting to accommodate even the largest of dinner parties, with its parquet flooring continuing through into the 18’ lounge, linking the spaces perfectly. The lounge enjoys a delightful cosy ambiance which is perfectly conducive to relaxation, with one hopelessly drawn to the fabulous feature stone fireplace with inset solid-fuel burner, which conjures images of frosty winter evenings huddled around a crackling fire, whilst the dual aspect affords an abundance of natural light and includes uPVC double glazed French doors opening onto the garden. A third 12’ reception room offers a flexible space which could be utilised for a plethora of purposes, whether it be a study for those who require some space to work from home, a separate sitting room or perhaps a playroom for the youngest members of the family. 

It is the magnificent kitchen/diner, however, which is the jewel in the crown of this sumptuous property, which has been extended with the addition of a marvellous orangery to create the ultimate 27’ open plan layout and that much desired hub of the home style space for the family to gather together or indeed a wonderfully sociable, informal environment for entertaining, with guests able to spill out into the garden for those summer barbeques via the bi-folding doors, which do a great job of linking the interior and exterior spaces. The quality kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of wall and base units in grey with contrasting granite work surfaces, including a central island with breakfast bar, as well as a host of integrated appliances, including Range-style cooker and dishwasher, whilst there are thoughtful additions such as underfloor heating beneath the sleek tiled floor and an integrated Sonos sound system. The ground floor is completed by a handy separate utility room which, at 17’ in length, is larger than most kitchens, and provides that all-important storage space, as well as a great place in which to keep the family laundry out of view of unexpected visitors. 

If one ventures up to the first floor, the state of impress continues with five bright and appealing bedrooms, including the 18’ master suite, complete with vaulted, beamed ceiling and stylish three piece en-suite shower room, with the remainder of the family suitable spoiled by the sumptuous family bathroom, which is the epitome of style and elegance, being fully tiled and fitted with a four piece suite in classic white, comprising of WC, wall-mounted wash hand basin, free-standing, roll-top bath and separate shower cubicle. 

The outside spaces here similarly excel, the long gravelled driveway creating a real feeling of prestige and leading to the parking area, which is able to accommodate a number of vehicles. Secure parking can be accommodated for three vehicles within the double garage and single garage, all of which are integral to the property and provide the opportunity for conversion to additional living accommodation, if so desired and subject to the necessary consents. The substantial gardens are a real horticultural treat and large enough to keep even the most avid gardener entertained, the front being mainly laid to lawn, with the rear also enjoying an expansive lawn with mature trees and shrubs, where the little ones can play to their hearts’ content, bordering open countryside and, therefore, affording a high degree of privacy and seclusion, giving the feeling that the whole of West Lancashire is one’s garden. This relaxing haven has something for every generation, with the adults able to relax on the block-paved patio, soaking up the sunny aspect, perhaps with a refreshing Mojito or two. There is also the most welcome surprise of a detached outbuilding, housing two stables and a tack room, complete with power and water, which is sure to score highly with any equestrian enthusiasts. With such a wealth of accommodation on offer, we would highly recommend an inspection of this beautiful home.
