Full description

MovingWorks is proud to present to the market a truly stunning detached farmhouse set in the sought-after and semi rural landscape of Whitestake, Preston. One of the oldest properties in the area, with the original part of the house dating back to the 1700's, Whitestake Farm played an integral role in the naming of the village and hence the name, Whitestake. Comprising of six bedrooms, four of which are ensuite, four reception rooms and a beautiful farmhouse kitchen; the property oozes character and grandeur throughout and needs to be seen to appreciate the history and story behind such a property. A more recent addition to the house, and certainly a focal point, is the impressive African hardwood-framed orangery which includes an indoor heated swimming pool and changing room with views over the landscaped gardens and beautiful countryside creating a sense of outdoor living whilst escaping from the elements. Whitestake Farm also offers business potential as a successful Spa and Bed & Breakfast business that operated on the site until 2010. For more information about this one-off farm house or to arrange a viewing, MovingWorks politely ask you to contact the office as viewings are strictly by appointment only.
