Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
A stunning CHARACTER 4 bedroom FARMHOUSE situated on the outskirts of the sought after village of Bretherton with superb RURAL VIEWS. Beautifully and sympathetically restored, the attention to detail is evident throughout. The property is set in a generous plot with attached barn having previously been granted PLANNING PERMISSION FOR ANCILLARY ACCOMMODATION, detached DOUBLE GARAGE and SWIMMING POOL annexe. NO CHAIN DELAY.

The main house sits centrally between the workshop with the benefit of planning for the annexe accommodation and the garage and pool buildings. The gravel driveway to the front provides parking and circulation space as well as separate in and out access points to the public highway.

The Entrance Hallway has a stone floor and step leading into the Living Room with reclaimed feature fireplace in stone surrounding the large wood burner that connects into a back boiler to heat not only the room but also the water. Beautiful oak bi-fold doors open from the living room into the dining room and further bi-fold doors again lead outside. The Dining Room has beams to the ceiling which is vaulted.

The Office is complimented by fitted office furniture and would equally suit a music room due to its positioning at one end of the house. The Snug Lounge also has a feature fireplace with stone surround and this time a gas fire.

The centrally set Kitchen/Living/Dining Room has two sets of doors to the outside and a solid oak kitchen with granite work surfaces and a wide range of appliances.

This is a superbly well-proportioned space that gives access to the outdoor entertainment area, the main reception rooms and also the Workshop (via the utility room) which has planning consent to be turned into annexed accommodation.

The Utility Room has a range of units and is washer and dryer plumbed. The ground floor is completed by a Wet Room with shower, basin and w.c. set close to the rear access door.

The landing with oak flooring gives access to all 4 of the bedrooms. The Master Bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and an En-Suite Facility comprising shower, w.c. and vanity basin.

The remaining 3 Bedrooms of which 2 are doubles and have the benefit of cast iron feature fireplaces that are working open fires. The fourth bedroom is a large single bedroom with a built in cupboard.

The Workshop is currently B1 in terms of its use class which means it can be utilised as a workshop. There are no working hour restrictions. The planning consent that exists has been granted by Chorley Borough Council (Ref. No: 15/00861/CLPUD,validated: 01 Oct 2015). It allows for a separate kitchen, lounge, dining room, utility, bedroom and bathroom and overall creates completely self-contained annexe accommodation. The workshop already has cavity walls although it is not insulated. The current planning consent is for the annexe to be occupied in conjunction with the house and not as a separate residence.

Outside to the rear can be found the Swimming Pool Building. It has the benefit of a separate boiler and filters which are located in the garage.

The Garage is detached and double in terms of its size. Potential may exist subject to the granting of any necessary consents for the garage, house and pool building to be connected.

The grounds to the rear are laid mainly to grass with a central feature bed and rustic boundaries onto the surrounding farm land which is greenbelt.

There is a stone flagged patio that connects the house and pool building. The grounds and house combine fantastically to offer a rural dwelling, full of character with modern touches and a swimming pool all set in almost an acre of grounds and unusually there is still further potential for individuals to improve the property through the planning consent that has been granted for the annexe.
