Property Description

Full description

Set in 1.7 acres this 18th Century Barn conversion bursts with character yet provides modern day living spaces all aset in a tremendously private and mature plot.
Set within easy reach of all the local facilities, including sought after schools, pubs and restaurants, this is a great family home.
Set well back from the public highway in a secluded position and contained within 1.7 acres of well- maintained and mature grounds Bridge End Barn dates back at least as far as the 18th Century. Of handmade brick under slate roof construction, the property is noted within its listing internally for the 3 king post roof trusses. The conversion has been carried out sympathetically approximately 20 years ago and includes many other features such as the vaulted ceiling and galleried landing within the entrance hall, revealed brickwork, stone flags and timber reveals.

The current owners have occupied Bridge End Barn for almost 18 years. Attracted by not only the privacy but the proximity to local facilities they are now looking to downsize.

From the electrically operated gates the gravel driveway sweeps through the grounds into a central cobbled yard with ample parking and turning. Entrances into the hallway with stone flag flooring, galleried landing above and furthermore a vaulted ceiling giving an impressive full height entrance.

The reception rooms range from the formal living room with large feature fireplace of brick and stone construction, housing a log burner, with double doors to the grounds. This spacious reception room is ideally set to one end of the house. The dining room also has doors to the exterior and double doors from the landing, whilst the family room has a feature brick and stone fireplace with inset log burner.

The kitchen dining is superbly proportioned. The solid oak kitchen units are accompanied by Corian work surfaces over, a range cooker and a variety of other appliances all set around the central table space. The stone flag flooring continues into the utility room with boiler housing and space for washer, dryer and other appliances as may be necessary.

The ground floor is completed by the study/office and the cloakroom with W.C. and basin.

To the first floor can be found a total of 6 bedrooms. The master bedroom has an outstanding example of a revealed truss as well as wide ranging rural views and an en-suite with shower basin and W.C. as well as a walk-in wardrobe (is this correct?)

Bedroom 2 is also en-suite whilst the other 4 bedrooms, 3 of which are double in scale, share the family bathroom with 4 piece comprising bath, W.C., basin and shower.

The detached garage is a triple garage with 3 separate garage doors. There is also a W.C. and workshop space to the ground floor. To the first floor can be found a space that is currently used for storage and as a gym but this space would offer a variety of potential uses dependent upon purchaser, including gym, home office, cinema room or occasional bedroom, subject to meeting any necessary regulations.

The grounds are beautiful and mature and predominantly laid to lawn. As well as the formal gardens on the approach there is also a particularly secluded garden directly adjacent to the kitchen which is ideal for more intimate entertainment opportunities.

All in all, this is a great family home, in a spectacular setting on the doorstep of one of Lancashire’s most sought after villages.
