An impressive and sympathetically refurbished detached property which dates back to the 1930s is our Home of Distinction.

Highfield in Stones Lane, Catterall, boasts a host of special features, including a newly-fitted kitchen, wet room, six bedrooms (two with en suite shower rooms) and two double glazed conservatories.

A beautiful family home set in idyllic grounds, the property also has enviable views looking out across fields with Nicky Nook Fell in the distance. Planning permission has been granted for development of an attached plot and, subject to relevant planning permission, possibilities could include a separate annex.

The property is entered through a vestibule that brings you into the hallway, which features a double sided black cast iron multi-fuel burner with stone mantlepiece and stone hearth. The inner hallway gives access to the study, utility room and wet room. The wet room boasts a three-piece suite with complementary wall and floor tiling with mains shower over, hand wash basin and low level WC. There is also a polished chrome ladder style heated towel rail.

The focal point of the large formal lounge is a double-sided black cast iron multi-fuel burner with stone mantlepiece and stone hearth. French doors lead into the P-shaped conservatory, which has double glazed French doors leading to the garden. At the heart of the home is a new fitted kitchen with breakfast island.

The dining room/family room has a Victorian Gothic style stone fireplace. Upstairs the master bedroom has a range of modern built-in wardrobes with contrasting bedside cabinets. The en suite shower room has a three-piece white suite and a corner shower cubicle. The second bedroom also has built-in wardrobes and drawers and an en suite. There are four further bedrooms.

The house bathroom has a four-piece suite and one of the features includes a free standing roll top bath held with feet.

The driveway to Highfield is accessed via a private drive and leads to a large parking area for six cars. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn, with two raised stone built flowerbeds, stone wall and wooden fence surround with mature trees. At the rear of the property there is a detached garage, log store, timber shed and summerhouse, which is double glazed and has power and light. There is also an established vegetable garden. The picturesque, landscaped gardens include a feature armorial globe and well established planting.
