Full description

Winding through the quiet country lanes between Southport and Ormskirk, you arrive at this charming ivy-clad home. Bees bumble back and forth between heady English lavender and fragrant climbing roses nestle amongst glossy ivy leaves. The large farm style wooden gates add to the rustic feel and provide secure parking, without obscuring the stunning view over the countryside from the front of the house.

Set over two floors, this deceptively spacious semi-detached home offers the perfect rural retreat.

The ground floor begins with the porch area and leads into the first family lounge, while the adjacent dining room boasts uninterrupted views across open countryside. A fitted kitchen flows into a utility room and the downstairs WC and bathroom are followed by an additional high vaulted roof lounge and conservatory.

The first floor features three double bedrooms, a modern shower room, useful office or home study and a unique outdoor balcony area.

If you yearn for a taste of rural life with idyllic views over open fields then Smithy Lane Scarisbrick could be your dream come true.

Nestled between Southport and Ormskirk lies the small village of Scarisbrick. A quiet, modest village with a mix of families and couples, the area is peaceful but well positioned with bustling Burscough village only minutes away.

The nearby Ormskirk retail park and estate offers supermarkets, shops and even a swimming pool to enjoy. If you are hoping to enjoy a bite to eat alongside the canal on a sunny day then pay a visit to nearby Burscough Wharf with its delightful independent shops and eateries.

When venturing further afield you will find motorways and rail networks easily accessible just moments drive from your front door. On foot or by bike is also a great way to explore your new neighbourhood with cycle paths alongside the canal and perfectly positioned country pubs to refresh and refuel.

Nearby schools have excellent reputations and for the youngest intrepid explorers the local forest school nursery offers an exciting introduction to the great outdoors.


Entrance Porch 
4' 7'' x 4' 1'' (1.4m x 1.25m)
Kick off your shoes or wellington boots as you step through the front door into the entrance porch, the sun illuminating the space as it streams through the feature arch window to the side of the house.

Reception Lounge 
15' 2'' x 13' 6'' (4.63m x 4.12m)
The first of four reception spaces, the focal point of this lounge is undoubtedly the striking exposed brickwork fireplace. French doors invite you out into the garden on sunnier days and the soft cream carpet underfoot extends up the stairs to the first floor.

Dining Room 
13' 6'' x 10' 2'' (4.12m x 3.12m)
Heading into the front dining room you are met with an impressive view of the West Lancashire countryside through the timber framed bow bay window. A large dining table offers space for the whole family to sit down to share dinner together and catch up after a busy day.

Back through the lounge and you come to the kitchen, a range of white wall and base units providing plenty of storage space for budding chefs and bakers.

Utility Room 
11' 5'' x 7' 0'' (3.49m x 2.14m)
The kitchen"s farmhouse tiles extend through the arched doorway and into the utility room.

Rear Reception Lounge 
17' 10'' x 13' 11'' (5.46m x 4.26m)
The juxtaposition of exposed brick with soft carpets and high framed ceiling with vintage floral sofas makes this room feel like a truly unique countryside escape. Choose a bestseller from the wooden bookcase, cocoon yourself in a soft blanket stowed away in one of the large storage cupboards and watch the seasons change out in the garden as mesmerising flames dance in the fuel stove.

Conservatory 
11' 6'' x 9' 1'' (3.52m x 2.79m)

Balcony 
8' 5'' x 5' 11'' (2.59m x 1.82m)
After a long day this bijou balcony offers the ideal getaway to watch the sunset with your sweetheart; favourite tipple in hand, scented citronella candles flickering in the breeze. Romantic wisteria drapes around this picture-perfect hideout and the sounds of the countryside provide a relaxing soundtrack.

First Floor Landing 
8' 0'' x 5' 9'' (2.45m x 1.76m)

As you step into the carpeted front bedroom you are met with one of the jewels of this charming rural property; an unspoilt view of the beautiful British countryside.
Looking out over open fields to the front of the house, chestnut feathers of strutting pheasants catch your eye, a solitary hare leaps through the green grass and swallows dart and glide over the ground in an elaborate flying display.
When day is done slip between luxurious cotton sheets on the large mahogany sleigh bed and watch dusk turn to night, the stunning view mirrored in the fitted wardrobes.

Shower Room 
9' 5'' x 3' 4'' (2.88m x 1.04m)
Sleek natural toned tiles adorn the floor and walls of this modern shower room complete with enclosed shower cubicle, WC and wash basin. The large stainless steel heated towel rail adds to the contemporary feel of the space.
