Property description

Resting at the head of a long private driveway in a peaceful location is this quite stunning Grade II listed Georgian character home. This magnificent property simply oozes grandeur and splendour, with handsome and spacious interiors of covering approximately 4200 square feet, which have been lovingly maintained, making it a truly unique home that retains many charming character features, such as high ceilings, beautiful sash windows, and decorative plasterwork.

Accommodation highlights include reception hallway, magnificent inner hall, large lounge, dining room, second lounge, breakfast kitchen, utility room, and downstairs shower room. To the first floor there are four double bedrooms, a family bathroom, en-suite, further sitting room/lounge and a magnificent conservatory. On the second floor one can find a study, and in the basement level is a wine cellar and a cloaks/wc. Outside the property rests upon approximately 34 acres of land which includes mature gardens and woodland areas with 28 acres leased to an agricultural tenant farmer. The property also boasts multiple outbuildings, which offer huge potential to develop and afford a total floor space of approximately 6000 square feet.

A pillared storm canopy and panelled door opens to the porch and reception hallway, with wide-plank wooden flooring, and detailed moulded ceiling coving with a central archway flowing to the Inner Hallway, which has a raised carpeted floor space and a magnificent oak hand carved staircase (which is the subject of a preservation order) leading to the first floor. The well-proportioned dining room has sash windows to the front and side elevations and ornate moulded ceiling cornicing and attractive fireplace with marble surround.

A delightful sitting room featuring a bay sash window to the front elevation. The traditional moulded fireplace incorporates a traditional cast iron grate on a marble hearth. Other features include detailed and moulded ceiling cornicing, and two feature recessed wall niches. The breakfast kitchen is traditionally appointed with a comprehensive range of dark wood wall and base units, contrasting work surfaces, tiled splashbacks, tiled flooring, a large Aga, integrated electric double oven, a stainless steel sink, and plumbing for a dishwasher. A doorway leads from the breakfast kitchen to a practical separate utility room. The main lounge benefits from two sets of French doors to the side aspect, allowing in plenty of natural light and providing exterior access. This delightful room is anchored by a large attractive brick built fireplace with inset lintel and a cosy traditional wood burning stove, and also features a large wooden beam to the ceiling. A downstairs shower room completes the ground floor accommodation.

The wonderful staircase, with numerous half-landings, leads to the first floor accommodation, where the wealth of living space continues. An additional large lounge/sitting room is set to the rear of the property - a beautiful light and airy room having dual aspects, with two sash windows to one side and two sets of French doors opening to the conservatory. This charming living space has intricately moulded cornicing and ceiling roses, attractive moulded fire place with marble hearth and inset living flame gas fire, and either side of the fireplace are two feature recessed wall niches. The glass roof conservatory is an endearing space, providing stunning views across the gardens and countryside beyond. The master bedroom has a sash window to the side elevation and moulded cornicing and decorative ceiling rose to the ceiling, and is fitted with a comprehensive range of mahogany fitted bedroom furniture, including wardrobes, dressing table, drawer units and bedsides. The en-suite is fully tiled and is appointed with a wc, wash hand basin, shower cubicle and sunken bath. The remaining bedrooms are all large doubles with sash windows, with bedroom two also being appointed with a range of fitted bedroom furniture. The family bathroom is fully tiled and is fitted with a five piece suite including wc, pedestal wash hand basin, bidet, bath and shower cubicle. On the second floor, one can find a handy home office/study - along with access to the under eaves storage space. The basement includes an impressive wine cellar and a handy cloaks/wc.

Outside, the property is set in an elevated position and is approached along a long private driveway of approximately one quarter of a mile, giving the home a feel of real privacy. Including in the sale is the former underground reservoir to Lathom Old Hall which has since been partially uncovered and is now used as a storage barn. The outbuildings have many possible uses, such as ancillary accommodation, separate dwellings, and equestrian use (all subject to the usual relevant planning and other consents). The property benefits from lovely open views over the surrounding greenbelt farmland. The location, whilst rural, is also a perfect for the commuter being only a short drive to the M58 motorway and railway network along with easy access to Burscough, Ormskirk and some of West Lancashire’s prettiest villages.

In summary, ‘Stand Farm’ represents a rare opportunity to acquire an historic Grade II listed landmark family home in the heart of this most desirable location.
