Church House Farm was built approximately twenty-four years ago by its present owner and stands in a prominent position in the centre of the village. Built with local reclaimed materials, the property appears older and brims with character both inside and out. The four spacious reception rooms, farmhouse kitchen, four double bedrooms - the master having an en-suite and dressing room - and a further en-suite to the second bedroom, pulls together to create a superb family home.
The property presents as a light, airy and spacious country farmhouse where a family can grow and enjoy the local amenities. Arriving through the central gravel driveway, this imposing residence welcomes you through arched oak double doors into a dining hallway. Just off, is a downstairs cloakroom with two-piece white suite and the painted spindle staircase to the side somehow presents itself both as discrete and yet a feature of the area. Traditional radiators add to the warmth this room exudes naturally as the light at the far end from the orangery draws you further in.
The orangery French doors open on to the rear patio, three windows and three Velux skylights draw the sunlight from the west facing garden. The tiled flooring offers a practical finish for when those summer evenings become chilly and you can retreat to its semi al fresco comfort.
From the hallway, reclaimed pine double doors with leaded and stained-glass insets give way to the lounge. This is a statement room with two large windows to the front and rear and two feature arch windows to either side of the brick fireplace having reclaimed stone plinths and mantle, recounting a traditional Lancashire farmhouse.
Directly opposite the lounge, crossing the entrance hallway, is a further reclaimed door with co-ordinating stained leaded glass which opens to the farmhouse style kitchen fitted with an excellent range of Matthew Marsden furniture. A double Belfast sink with mixer tap is set into the granite worksurface whilst the integrated dishwasher is close at hand. There is space for an American fridge/freezer along with the obligatory Aga! A built-in tongue and groove settle seat and a further raised semi-circular oak breakfast bar provide the perfect perches for looking through the window to the side garden, and your toes can rest against the traditional radiator. The floor is stone flagged and the ceiling beamed and dotted with inset spot lights.
From the kitchen, a pitch pine door opens to the mandatory boot/utility room with a flagged floor, lots of storage space, plumbing for an automatic washing machine and space for a tumble dryer. Further shoe storage sits beneath a built-in seat, essential for pulling on those gardening shoes, and also located in this room is the gas central heating boiler.
An opening from the kitchen leads to the snug with further traditional radiators and a full height brick fireplace with log burning stove and flagged hearth. A television plinth sits to the side and the room has views of the church to the front.
Rising up the twisted spindle staircase, the large landing has two windows to the front and is presently used as an office space. The dual aspect master bedroom is very spacious and offers potential for re-modelling to add further wardrobe/dressing room space in addition to the existing walk-in wardrobe. The three-piece en suite, with tiled floor and window to the rear, comprises low flush Wc, pedestal wash hand basin and panelled bath with telephone style shower attachment plus a radiator to warm the towels.
The second bedroom, again to the rear, has built-in open wardrobes and an en-suite comprising a corner shower, low flush Wc, and pedestal wash hand basin. Across the hallway are two further double bedrooms, one to the rear and another to the front, and both are served by the three-piece bathroom with window to the rear, low flush Wc, pedestal wash basin, and panelled bath.
Outside, the property stands central to the plot with lawned gardens, mature hedging, conifer borders and herbaceous shrubs surrounding. The property’s character has established itself here too; with cobbled steps leading to raised lawned gardens before further cobble steps descend to the rear stone flagged patio and a stone flagged path which leads all the way around the house. The views to the front are of the local church and, in the distance to the rear, is the west coast stretching from the Welsh hills to the Lakeland fells.
NB: TNB: The present owners are selling in order to build their new home on the land to the rear of Church House Farm. Landscaping will be arranged to ensure privacy and the dwelling will be for their own use along with a newly built stable block to complement their equestrian business which is discretely located to the side of the dwelling behind conifer hedging at a lower level.
