Property Description

Full description

A magnificent stonebuilt detached property facing south with a refined and rural aspect. Enjoying an excellent flow of space and light, it comprises hall, cloaks, lounge, sitting room, dining room, study, kitchen diner, utility, pantry, three generous double bedrooms, two bathrooms, three-car garage, lovely manageable gardens and plentiful parking. (2,648 sq ft/246.0 sq m approx/EPC: E).

Such a wonderful countryside location within the Ribble Valley, yet only minutes away from the M6.

Directions - When approaching from Mellor Brook turn left into Preston New Road, by the Windmill Garage, in the direction of Blackburn. After a short distance there is a turning on the right hand side, which also leads to Stanley House, Country Hotel and Restaurant; this is Further Lane. Turn right here and proceed for approximately quarter of a mile and Wards Farm can be found on the left hand side. It can be identified by its stone boundary wall and distinctive iron railings. It is the last property on the left hand side that you'll see before reaching the gates to Woodfold Park.

Services - Mains electricity, private septic tank, borehole water supply shared with Wards Farmhouse, private oil supply. Council tax is payable to RVBC Band G. We are advised the tenure is Freehold. The primary source of heating is from an air source heat pump to panelled radiators. Built with an oil fired system, the still present Trianco oil boiler is kept as a secondary back up system if required. Central heating system is of the pressurised unvented type with a Heatrae Sadia Megaflo hot water storage cylinder located in the airing cupboard.

Additional Features - The property has mahogany hardwood sealed unit double glazed windows and external doors, mahogany internal doors to the principal reception rooms, a combination of LED and halogen down-lighting, an alarm system with electrically operated gates on the drive, ceiling speakers wired for Sonos.

Location - This part of Mellor lies on the southern fringe of the Ribble Valley, a beautiful verdant green area, a short car journey away from shops, schools and facilities. Ideal for a purchaser wanting an easily accessible rural location, but without the potential drawbacks of isolation and with the relevant proximity of the motorway network, it makes commuting so much easier.

Accommodation - Approached over a gravelled drive, Wards Farm enjoys a sunny south facing aspect towards Woodfold Park; beautifully rural with lush green pasture and mature indigenous trees. This strikingly handsome former barn and shippon combination was expertly converted in 2000 to a very high standard and offers an elegant arrangement of spacious accommodation with an emphasis on free flowing space and generously proportioned rooms. Far more cultured than rustic, we love it.

Having both front and rear doors, each with a porch and opening into a grand hall which connects the whole of the ground floor. A mahogany staircase with a half landing ascends to the first floor and there are two cloaks cupboards and a two piece cloakroom. Infused with light the main lounge has windows on its southerly and westerly elevations and exposed timbers are a reminder of its original purpose as a shippon. Now with an air of sophistication, an open grate fire adds a touch of period charm and double doors open to an adjoining sitting room; ideal when your home is welcome to guests. With an external door as well, the sitting room also brings additional flexibility. Rather conveniently tucked away, off the inner hall, is a good sized study and store room offering an excellent homeworking facility. For those who are fond of entertaining, the "formal" dining room is perfect; nearby but separate from the kitchen and conveniently close to the lounge. For every day meals the kitchen diner will take care of your needs with consummate ease. Exhibiting the usual style and practicality associated with the Kitchen Design Centre, you'll find an extensive array of cabinetry complemented by Neff appliances consisting of a double oven and grill, microwave, induction hob beneath a stainless steel extractor, dishwasher and fridge freezer. The counters are a combination of black granite and laminate and there is a twin bowl sink with a swan necked Triflow filter tap. For practicality the floor and window sills are in natural stone, which extends into the most ample shelved pantry and the utility which has a sink unit underneath a washing machine.

When choosing the first floor bedroom configuration, the owners preferred to create three large double bedrooms off a light and airy landing with a substantial shelved airing cupboard. The master bedroom has built-in furniture along all four walls and a luxurious four piece en-suite with Villeroy and Boch sanitaryware. So stylish it consists of a bath with Axor hand-held shower, a Daryl glazed shower cubicle with an Axor thermostatic shower, low suite wc and a vanity washbasin. Towels warm on a chromed ladder radiator and the walls are tiled. The other two bedrooms both have fitted furniture and exposed beams to add a touch of character. The four piece house bathroom consists of a bath with Axor hand-held shower, Daryl glazed shower cubicle with an Axor thermostatic shower, wall hung basin/vanity storage and a low suite wc. The walls are part tiled and there is a chromed ladder radiator.

Outside - The property stands behind natural stone front walls with distinctive iron railings and a gated drive. A sweeping gravel drive leads to a three-car detached garage, stonebuilt with a slate roof and three electric doors. The water filtration plant is housed here along with the Trianco boiler and air source heat pump. Parking should never be a problem with the potential to accommodate circa fifteen cars.

Rarely does such a property come to market and we highly recommend it to you.

Viewing - Strictly by appointment with the Agents.
