Traditional Georgian farmhouse with loads of attractive features

This property is a beautifully appointed Georgian farmhouse set in 2.79 acres in a private location but within easy reach of the amenities of Chipping, Longridge, and Preston.

It has a traditional bar, providing potential for alternative use and a separate garage building with adjoining stables.

The placing of Higher Chipping House upon the open market allows potential purchasers the opportunity to acquire an excellently presented property set in a beautiful location with the added benefit of the opportunity of creating ancillary accommodation to the main house by way of conversion of the small traditional barn. There is also the opportunity for equestrian or lifestyle farming interests through the garage and stable building located a short distance from the property.

Entering through the original timber front door, you go through the hallway and to the formal dining room, the sitting room, a snug, the spacious kitchen diner with its pantry and utility room and, finally, the cloakroom,

Three double bedrooms, the family bathroom and a spacious master bedroom suite with its own en suite and dressing room are on the first floor, to which there is a mulllioned window on the stair half landing.

On the second floor are two attic rooms, which provide excellent potential for conversion to provide further residential accommodation.

From the hall with its flagged floor, a door opens into an understairs store and there are further doors into the sitting room, the dining room, the snug and the kitchen diner.

The sitting room is an attractive room with original timber sash windows to the front, original stone mullioned windows to the rear, beams to the ceiling, a stone feature fireplace with cast iron back and tiled hearth and a range of wall lights.

The dining room has an original timber sash window to the front, exposed beam work to ceiling and a feature stone inglenook fireplace, believed to have been re-used from a local hall.

The beamed snug also has mullioned windows and the large open plan kitchen diner provides a light, airy central family space in this character home. The property is set within most attractive cottage style gardens and also offers small traditional two storey stone barn providing excellent opportunities to convert into a home office, granny annexe, or even holiday cottage.

Layout: Many original features in hallway, sitting room, dining room, spacious kitchen diner with pantry and utility, master bedroom suite with en suite and dressing room, three further bedrooms, family bathroom, and two attic rooms on the second floor.
