Property description

This is a rare opportunity to acquire an exceptional country home complete with separate detached barn conversion, stable block and approximately 13 acres of grazing land with an additional 10 acres available under separate negotiation or to rent. Fox's Lair dates back to the 17th century and is simply brimming with character and has been renovated and cherished by the current vendor who has created a stunning family home with a stylish interior and luxury fixtures and fittings throughout.
With 4 captivating reception rooms, a large conservatory, two internal staircases leading to four bedrooms and two bathrooms, this is a truly exceptional property with much to offer.
Situated on the outskirts of Edgworth, Fox's Lair takes full advantage of the panoramic views over surrounding countryside.
The gated entrance with intercom system opens onto a block paved driveway leading to a gravelled parking area with turning circle. There are formal gardens with fabulous views and various seating areas including a large patio just off the conservatory, perfect for entertaining.

Fox's Lair - The Main Residence

The entrance hallway with arched window and Fired Earth stone flooring sets the scene for the impressive interior of Fox's Lair. From the hallway you can access the kitchen and reception rooms. The kitchen is a superb room and fitted to exacting standards by Martin Moore with beautiful hand painted units, wooden surfaces and Limestone flooring. There is a cream 4 oven Aga plus an Aga companion with granite surround, Belfast sink, integrated dishwasher, plate rack and freestanding fridge freezer with built in wine rack above. There is ample dining space within the kitchen for informal dining. A staircase off the kitchen provides access to three bedrooms to the first floor in addition to the second staircase off the hallway to a large landing area and the master suite.
Adjacent to the kitchen you will find the Oak Room, a cosy lounge with oak panelling, an open fire in a fabulous sandstone surround, exposed beams, latched door and original stained glass windows.
A useful utility room with quarry tiled floor is located just off the lounge with stable door leading out to the side garden. There is a cloakroom also off the lounge with a two piece suite and Fired Earth wall tiles. A few steps lead off the lounge to the formal dining room, an attractive room with window shutters, flagged floor and a stone wall providing a glimpse through to the formal lounge beyond. The second and formal lounge is fitted with limed oak flooring with matching window ledges, a fireplace with a cast iron insert and gas fire. This room has three aspects and leads through to the conservatory which is a large room with tiled flooring, exposed stone wall and amazing views with access directly out to the patio and formal gardens.

From here access back to the hallway leads to the first floor and the beautiful landing area, perfect for reading or simply providing space between the master suite and the three bedrooms and bathroom just down the landing. The master suite enjoys stunning views over the land and countryside beyond. A large bedroom fitted with walk in dressing room, a superb space with lots of natural light, window shutters and access through to the walk in wardrobe with hanging, shelving and drawer space. The Ensuite is fitted with a three piece Villeroy & Boch suite, Fired earth tiles and window shutters. The other bedrooms are all doubles, all with their own unique character. They share the house bathroom which is fabulous, a free standing roll top bath, Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware and window shutters.
There is so much to describe about this stunning home but the overall charm and quality can only be truly appreciated when viewing.

The Barn

The detached stone barn is charming, renovated in 2001 and used as an annexe to the main residence with two bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, two reception rooms and ground floor cloakroom/wc. Although there are some period features, The Barn has a more modern feel and is flooded with natural light and lovely views over the gardens and land with patio doors leading straight off the sun room onto the patio area.
This property is spacious and nicely finished with oak doors, a combination of wood and Sisal flooring, Granite work surfaces and gas Aga. This is a wonderful space with so many interpretation's of use depending on your individual requirements.

The Equestrian

Just across the courtyard in sight of the house, there are 6 stables including a mother and foal box plus tack room which are in excellent condition with water and electricity supply.
A large gated holding area is positioned next to the stable block providing parking for trailers/tractors or additional storage. Planning permission was granted in 2013 (Application No:10/13/0300) for a full size Menage with a 30 ft trot up area and horse walker. With approximately 23 acres of grazing land, the horses here are successfully grazed all year round with interlinking paddocks divided with 5 bar gates. There is a further paddock opposite the property.

The Setting

Fox's Lair is situated on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Edgworth 19 Miles from Manchester city centre, 8 Miles from Bury town centre and 8 Miles from Bolton town centre. Edgworth is an extremely sought after semi-rural village with its own shops, pubs and restaurants with a real sense of community. The scenery is stunning with beautiful countryside on your doorstep yet within easy reach of the motorway network with the M65, M66 and M62 just a short drive away.
