This is a delightful conversion of a former coach house and stables dating from 1880 in a private, tranquil and picturesque setting, which includes an embankment area and fishing rights on the River Wyre.

Detached and with six bedrooms, four bathrooms and three reception rooms, the house also has a self-contained two-bedroom annexe and has character features throughout, combining a period property with a lovely family home.

Private and mature landscaped gardens total about 0.8 acres and the Coach House, which is brick under slate construction, is set in an L-shape around the front cobbled courtyard.

There is also access to the rear of the property, where planning consent is in place for construction of a detached double garage, which would allow the existing integral garage to be brought into use within the main house.

The features within are numerous, but particularly noteworthy is the number of rooms with dual aspects, thus creating tremendous natural light. Ceiling heights to the ground floor vary from 8’3” to 8’7”, and in addition there are a variety of timber reveals, beams and feature fireplaces.

The entrance porch that faces onto the cobbled yard opens into a large and very light reception room. There is a feature fireplace in the lounge with an open grate of brick and timber, while double doors lead out to the rear patio and gardens.

The central hallway also has a feature fireplace, stairs rising to the first floor and a substantial snug, currently used as a study.

The family room sits directly adjacent to the breakfast kitchen and these two spaces can be easily used together for family occasions.

The family room has a gas-fired stove set in a brick and timber feature, and tri-fold doors lead to the cobbled courtyard.

The breakfast kitchen has a fully-fitted range of units with granite work surfaces, a breakfast bar and double doors leading to the rear grounds.

Off the landing is the family bathroom servicing a double bedroom which links in to a further bedroom space suitable for a nursery or dressing room.

The other two double bedrooms have the benefit of dual aspects and en suite facilities, while the self-contained guest suite has an inter-connecting door into the main house.

Layout: In a former coach house and stables dating from 1880, six bedrooms, four bathrooms, three reception rooms, well fitted kitchen, family room, a self-contained guest suite (also containing all necessary facilities) and an integral garage which could be converted for use within the main house.

Main room sizes: None given, but all main rooms are spacious with an abundance of natural light, original features, in a picturesque setting with fishing rights existing on the River Wyre.
