This handsome, distinctive old stock brick barn conversion enjoys an idyllic location having open and far reaching pastoral aspects. With generously sized accommodation throughout, this four bedroom residence also benefits from surrounding lawn gardens, ample parking and a hard tennis court.
A broad timber-panelled door with glazed inserts opens into the elegantly presented hallway offering a true sense of arrival and having a solid oak staircase which turns and rises to the first floor and has a large cupboard beneath with a cloaks hanging rail. The limestone flagged flooring continues through into the breakfast kitchen, utility room and cloakroom as does the recessed spot lighting. A door opens to the dual aspect lounge and dining room with French doors to the rear garden with far reaching farmland views and two side windows overlooking the tennis court. The focal point of the room is the ingle set multi-fuel burning stove which rests on a stone hearth and has a stone lintel above. Wall, pendant and recessed lighting give a warm evening ambience to this perfect room for entertaining.
The kitchen has been fitted with a Shaker style range of pale grey painted cabinets, drawers and larders offering panoply of storage options having seams of oak interspersed and dove-grey granite worktop to coordinate. The island breakfast bar and work station has an inset Siemens four-ring induction hob, a suspended chimney extractor above and a combined oven and grill below plus and integrated microwave oven. Also inset is a twin-bowl Butlers sink unit set beneath the window to the front with an integrated automatic dishwasher close by. Space is provided for an American style fridge freezer and space and plumbing for other essential white goods can be found in the adjoining utility room which also has a cupboard housing the meters, a door to the garage and a door to the courtyard. A door also opens to the cloakroom with a two-piece white suite and a cupboard housing the under-floor heating controls.
Also off the kitchen is the snug with French doors to the courtyard, window to the driveway and a vaulted ceiling with exposed king truss. A door opens to bedroom four with windows to three walls, a second king truss and an adjoining en suite fitted with a tiled shower cubicle, vanity set wash basin, w.c. and a chrome ladder style heated towel rail. These rooms would make an ideal suite for a dependent relative.
Wall inset lighting illuminates the staircase to the first floor galleried landing with a painted spindle balustrade, a circular window and semi-vaulted ceilings with recessed spotlights which can be found through the upstairs rooms. Firstly, there is a study with Velux skylight, eaves storage cupboard and high level power points and telephone point for easy desk use. The second and third double bedrooms are both flooded with light from their two Velux skylight windows on the south elevation as are their generously sized three-piece en suite bathrooms. The dual aspect master bedroom has French doors and a Juliet balcony to the rear taking full advantage of the stunning views. The en suite has a luxurious finish with wall lighting illuminating the slate wall and floor tiling and having a step-in shower cubicle, a tile panelled bath, a vanity set console wash basin with mirrored cabinet above and a wall mounted w.c.
Sumners Barn is approached via a sweeping pebbled driveway within a boundary hawthorn hedge and lawn dotted with specimen trees and provides parking for several cars. Further parking is found beyond the brick wall enclosed courtyard where there is a block paved area leading to the integral garage with electronically controlled door, power and light which also provides housing for the oil fired central heating boiler and cylinder tank. Box tree bordered lawns have a pebble path cutting between and leading to the front door whilst opposite is the enclosed tennis hard court. To the rear of the barn are an extensive lawn area with lavender borders and a stone paved sun terrace creating an ideal spot for taking in the breath-taking and far reaching views which form part of the West Lancashire Plain.
