Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Originally The Hesketh Arms, an important coaching inn approximately half way between Southport and Preston, the property retains many of the original features including the original sea wall, a fabulous cellar, and outbuildings which used to offer stabling for up to fourteen horses.

Step under the date stone into the farmhouse vestibule and the spacious lounge beyond. With gas fired stoves at each end this room retains the original ovens from when this was a working inn and farm.  From there you can access the generous dining room with open fire in imposing hearth and French doors opening on to the garden.

To the rear of the property is the real heart of the house.  A fabulous breakfast kitchen with exposed beams, granite work surfaces, underfloor heating, range cooker and central island giving seating for six opens to the dining area with a door to the terrace and period glass house so you can quickly access the fruits of your labours, and concluding with the wonderful sun room overlooking the garden, the delightfully named Dunkirk Dib and the shorelands of the Ribble Estuary.

Off to the side is a sizeable utility which, as well as having a second set of stairs to the first floor, leads down through stately double doors to the stunning cellar with arched roof which would make a perfect bar or cinema room, this really is our favourite room.

To the first floor are six double bedrooms, two of which are over the annex, each having views over either the garden and farmland or the courtyard and with plenty of natural light.  Supporting this are two beautiful bathrooms varying in style from the period to the modern, each with spacious showers and all you would expect in a property of this calibre.

The main stairs lead down to an internal hallway giving on to both the main reception room and the dining room from which a door leads into the self-contained annex.  What a delightful space this is, with two bedrooms, bright and welcoming lounge, fully fitted wet room and well proportioned breakfast kitchen with access to both the side garden and the courtyard, and fitted with contemporary units with granite work surfaces and a range of integrated appliances.


Externally, Mount Farm has plenty more to offer and you get a sense of its heritage.  The impressive courtyard is accessed via wrought iron gates and provides parking for numerous vehicles.  The barns provide privacy, storage and shelter and offer untapped potential for any purchaser as well as support for espalier pear trees.  There are numerous other outbuildings including the greenhouse with deep raised beds perfect for planting and a substantial and heavy cropping vine in pride of place.  Across the terrace from the greenhouse a fruiting kiwi bush also benefits from the shelter and warmth of a west facing wall.  A wonderful terrace runs the length of the property to the rear and affords both a place to relax and entertain whilst soaking up the views and sunsets.  The garden is arranged for both style and pleasure, mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees, and the upper garden boasting a pizza oven and the lower garden nestling up to the sea wall.

Mount Farm has been a wonderful home for many generations of the same family for the last 110 years and it is now time for new owners to put their stamp on it with the same love and care as its current owners.  It remains a property of both substance and style with the added promise of untapped potential.
