Full description

For many, the dream of living within a barn conversion is the ultimate aspiration, with few homes able to match their awe-inspiring levels of character and charm. This outstanding detached example could make that dream a reality for one fortunate buyer, having no doubt been cast many wistful glances from admiring passers-by, its vast frontage and impressive plot gracing the market with something that is quite unique indeed. With a home of such depth, it would be difficult to isolate one point which makes this property so special, whether it be the impressive proportions of the accommodation, which includes three reception rooms, five bedrooms and four bath/shower rooms, the flexibility afforded by the most welcome surprise that is the attached barn or perhaps the fabulous plot, with an enclosed paddock of circa an acre to accompany the private gardens, which themselves extend to circa a third of an acre. Whichever aspect catches one’s eye, we are certain that this fabulous property cannot fail to impress even the most discerning of acquirers, with our clients having gone to great lengths to sympathetically blend the old and the new harmoniously, and so from this remarkable building which was originally designed for function over aesthetics, a supremely elegant and charming home has been created, offering all the modern appointments required of a property in the 21st century, whilst retaining the rustic accents which acknowledge its past and provide that much desired originality, including a characterful fireplace, latched doors and gorgeous exposed beams.


The accommodation extends to in excess of a truly vast 4,825 square feet in total, of which we are confident that few, if any, homes can compete in the area, a fact accentuated by the fact that our clients have run an award-winning guest house from the premises for many successful years. It may be that a new owner may wish to continue in the same vein, however most will see this opportunity as a wonderfully spacious home in which their family can grow and flourish. The property is situated within the highly desirable West Lancashire village of Lathom, nestled amidst its delightful country backdrop for which the area has become renowned, complete with rural views to both the front and rear, and therefore affording an excellent degree of privacy. The strong agricultural traditions throughout this community provide a thoroughly authentic feeling of rural living, with highlights including the picturesque Leeds Liverpool Canal, which provides just one of a number of beautiful options for taking a relaxing stroll with the dog of an evening. Despite this feeling of seclusion, the property is far from remote, conveniently sited within easy reach of a number of highly desirable villages, such as Burscough and Parbold, both of which offer excellent commuter links, as well as a host of shops and amenities and, for the social butterfly, eclectic restaurants and drinking establishments. 


Internally, within its almost insurmountable size, one will discover a home which exudes a real feeling of tradition and heritage, with an almost tangible warmth which is prevalent from the first step across the threshold via the welcoming entrance hallway with its gorgeous Oak staircase to the first floor, and only intensifies as one continues through into the 19’ main lounge, complete with its feature open fireplace. The main hub of the home is undoubtedly the marvellous 24’ open plan breakfast kitchen/family room, the epitome of modern day living, creating that much desired wonderfully sociable environment in which the family can gather together, its homely ambiance warming the soul, aided in no small part by the feature brick-built fireplace with its inset solid-fuel burner, which conjures images of frosty winter evenings huddled around a roaring fire. The kitchen is comprehensively fitted with a range of Farmhouse-style wall and base units in cream, with contrasting solid wood work surfaces, a central island incorporating a breakfast bar and equipped with a host of integrated appliances, including Rangemaster-style cooker with extractor hood, fridge/freezer and dishwasher, whilst the adjoining 18’ dining room is most conveniently positioned for those evenings when one has the urge to entertain. The ground floor is completed by the 14’ off-lying conservatory with French doors onto the garden, providing a perfect vantage point from where to enjoy the delightful aspect, a generously proportioned 13’ utility room in which to keep the family laundry out of view of unexpected visitors and a handy two piece cloakroom/WC. 


If one hasn’t been wowed enough, a trip up to the first floor will impress even further, with the generous landing providing scope for use as a work space or reading area, as well as providing access to the five bedrooms, all of which are excellent doubles. Furthermore, three of the bedrooms boast private en-suite facilities, two being three piece en-suite shower rooms and the other a luxuriously appointed four piece bathroom, which would be perfect as a guest room, whilst the magnificent 24’ master bedroom truly impresses with its size, as well as being filled with natural light via the dual aspect windows. The accommodation is completed by the main bathroom, which is fitted with a three piece suite in classic white, comprising of WC, pedestal wash hand basin and P-shaped bath with overhead shower. 


Externally, the property takes full advantage of its beautiful setting, encompassed by its beautifully maintained formal gardens which extend to circa a third of an acre, with swathes of lawn providing ample opportunity for the little ones to burn off their energy. The traditional shingled carriage driveway to the front provides all of the off-road parking facilities one could require, as well as providing access to the integral single garage, whilst there is a large stone paved patio area to the rear.  However, there are a further two wonderful surprises here, not least the huge circa 1,610 square feet attached barn, which affords boundless possibilities, subject to any applicable consents, whether it be for conversion to additional living accommodation or perhaps leisure facilities, such as a swimming pool. However, this space could quite simply be a most useful storage facility or large garage for those who wish to store multiple vehicles, or even for equestrian use, given the other surprise of a circa one acre enclosed paddock directly to the rear of the property. We would highly recommend an internal inspection of this exceptional home to appreciate all that it has to offer.
