** First Time to the Market in 40 Years ** Equestrian Potential ** Rural Location **

Set in just over half an acre, Marl Cop House offers far more than meets the eye. Having not been offered to the open market in 40 years, this property offers a rural feel whilst being close to the sought after village of Bretherton.

Set in just over half an acre, Marl Cop House offers far more than meets the eye. A relatively simple exterior when viewed from the road hides the plethora of accommodation within and the very striking open vista to the rear.

The secure frontage to the property has a brick wall with electrically operated gates as well as a lawn with shrubs surrounding. The tarmac parking area will accommodate a number of vehicles.

The covered entrance way to the house opens into an entrance vestibule and furthermore into the entrance hallway, with stairs off, and access to the cloakroom with WC and bathroom.

The main feature of the ground floor is the open plan living/kitchen/dining room which really does form the hub of this family home. The kitchen has a full range of appliances in high gloss black with a mixture of corian and granite worksurfaces with separate island unit, including breakfast bar.

Importantly, for equestrian owners and family users alike, there are open views over the grounds to the rear and two sets of double doors leading out onto the outdoor entertaining space.

The living and dining area are separated only by a double sided feature fireplace with log burner creating a great central feature.

This space leads on to the garden room with tiled floor and two sets of double doors to both the east and west outdoor entertainment spaces. The ground floor is completed by the snug lounge with a delightfully different feel and a feature wood burner.

To the first floor can be found three double bedrooms and the potential to create a fourth, subject to the gaining of any necessary consents or building regulation approval. There are two bathrooms, one being a family bathroom with shower, bath, WC and basin. The second being an ensuite to the master with shower, WC and basin and this is accompanied by a built in wardrobe.

Externally, there are a number of outbuildings, all of which are set around the substantial lawned garden with a variety of outdoor entertainment choices including a couple of patios and a veranda timber decked area with hot tub. The outbuildings include a double garage along with a workshop and store which has excellent potential to create annexed accommodation, subject to gaining the necessary consents.

To the bottom of the garden can be found the equestrian facilities which comprises a range of rendered block build loose boxes with concrete apron to the front. This currently provides four loose boxes and two tack rooms. There is a timber lean to barn to the rear and also a separate timber loose box, all set around the paddock with all-weather rubber surface and flood lights. This would suit those just entering the equestrian market or purchasers with the need for a great range of outbuildings.

The current vendors rent several acres of grazing land. Whilst there are no guarantees that this arrangement will continue the land may be available for sale.

Overall, it is 40 years since Marl Cop House has been offered to the open market and this is a great opportunity for those wishing to be on the edge of a sought after village but having the benefit of a very rural feel.
