All too infrequently, the market is graced with something that is quite unique; a home of distinction that is almost without compare in terms of its individuality and character. Exuding charm and style in abundance, this quite sublime stone detached residence affords one such opportunity, having been a real labour of love, its thoughtful design providing a perfect lesson in how to blend character with contemporary flair. Through a combination of exacting standards, a keen eye for detail and the highest quality of fixtures and fittings, our clients have created a supremely elegant and charming home, offering all the modern appointments required of a property in the 21st century, whilst introducing authentic rustic accents to provide that originality and panache which is demanded from a country residence.

Nestled within a commanding plot of circa two acres and enjoying stunning open views to the rear, this quintessential dream home integrates seamlessly with its rural surroundings, secreted away along a leafy lane at the heart of the Lancashire countryside. The pretty village of Higher Wheelton is extremely well regarded, renowned for its pleasing blend of prestige and character homes. Its breath-taking scenery offers a genuine feeling of rural living yet, in truth, this idyllic setting is far from remote, being very conveniently situated only a short drive out of the bustling town of Chorley, where one will discover a host of shops and amenities at hand. For the youngest members of the family, excellent schools at both primary and secondary level are within easy reach and, for the grown-ups with a commute to consider, one can be assured of ease of access throughout the North-West and beyond, with the M6, M61 and M65 reachable in mere minutes, ensuring major commercial centres such as Manchester, Bolton, Preston and Blackburn are all easily accessible.

The property enchants the heart from the moment one gazes upon its chocolate box exterior and this mesmerizing feeling only increases as one crosses the threshold, with the fabulous interior warming the soul, extending to in excess of 3,830 square feet in total, which not only includes the generously proportioned main living accommodation, but also a fully self-contained detached annex, which would be ideal for a teenage/elderly relative requiring their independence, yet with the reassurance of remaining within the family environment. One enters via the entrance porch with its useful two-piece cloakroom/WC and gorgeous York stone flagged floor – a teaser of the character that awaits – before proceeding through into the reception hallway, complete with a feature staircase drawing the eye up to the galleried landing. The 19’ main lounge infuses a warm and inviting ambience, aided in no small part by the rustic brick-built fireplace with inset log burner, conjuring images of frosty winter evenings with the crackling of the fire providing a relaxing soundtrack. A second 13’ flexible reception room is presently utilised as a games room, but could be suitable for a plethora of purposes, including a study or playroom, and which leads through into a vast 20’ garden room – the perfect vantage point from which to survey one’s grounds and the enchanting scenery. The hub of this home, however, is undoubtedly the magnificent 31’ open plan kitchen/diner/family room, the epitome of modern day living and the ultimate entertaining space able to accommodate even the most populous of gatherings, bathed in natural light via the abundance of windows. A triumph of design and style, this wonderfully sociable environment provides designated areas for cooking, dining and relaxing, with the kitchen area being worthy of particular adulation, being fitted with an extensive range of bespoke Neptune wall and base units in white with complementary granite work surfaces, incorporating a central island and a host of integrated appliances, including space for the all-important AGA, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and wine cooler. The same exceptional quality is mirrored within the off-lying utility room – a handy space in which to keep the laundry out of view of unexpected visitors – as well as a useful boot room.

The state of impress continues on the first floor, where four double bedrooms will be revealed, including the breath-taking 28’ principal bedroom which would not look out of place within a boutique hotel, complete with en-suite dressing room, stylish wet room-style shower room and a balcony – a romantic setting on which to enjoy one’s morning cup of coffee. Two further bedrooms benefit from individual en-suite shower rooms, with the family bathroom completing the main accommodation, being beautifully appointed and fitted with a three piece suite in classic white, comprising of WC, washstand-style wash hand basin and free-standing roll-top bath.

Externally, the property is approached via electrically operated gates, with ample off-road parking facilities provided by the substantial driveway and storage by the large, detached timber barn. A further outbuilding has been thoughtfully converted into generously proportioned ancillary accommodation, which is fully self-contained and comprises of a lounge, kitchen, double bedroom, dressing room/workspace and a wet room-style shower room, adding a rather unique dimension to the property, particularly useful for multi-generational living. The circa two acre plot includes immaculately tended formal gardens which abut stunning open countryside, but also designated areas for all the family to enjoy. The youngsters can burn off their energy on the artificially turfed football pitch or satisfy their adventurous side exploring the private woodland, whilst the adults are very well catered for within their covered leisure space, complete with yet another gorgeous fireplace with inset wood burner, and a built-in bar and barbeque area.

We are confident that any viewer cannot fail to be impressed by the size, flexibility and quality of the accommodation on display, and which can only be appreciated by an internal inspection of this quite exceptional home.
