Property description

***the stunning location of this home can only really be appreciated on site*** Rookery Cottage is a quite captivating stone built detached home that occupies a stunning plot, nestled amidst the picturesque West Lancashire countryside. Approached via two private driveways in an area renowned for its refined country homes, the original property dates back to 1718 and has been modernised and extended by the current owners to an almost unassailable standard, creating a home of the type and quality which rarely becomes available on the open market. Perhaps the home’s most salient point is its position, which in our opinion offers what must surely be the finest view in the region - with breath taking vistas towards Parbold Hill, the Lancashire plains and the Cumbrian mountains beyond.

The home has been meticulously restored, refurbished and extended to an extremely high standard with the culmination being a collection of elegant living spaces completed with exquisite taste and care. A gracious and elegant style infuses each room and every aspect of the home’s finish has been executed to a level of master craftsmanship befitting of this extremely desirable location. The facade perfectly blends historic charm with the modern amenities found inside and the refined interiors are embellished with rustic accents, with exposed beams and stone work combining with quality fixtures and an abundance of natural light which enhances the sense of spaciousness throughout.

Accommodation covers over 3700 square feet and almost every room commands beautiful open views. Brief highlights include a spacious entrance hallway, a huge 27ft lounge, a delightful sun room with aspects and access out to the pool area, a snug, family dining room, and a large open plan dining kitchen/family room. A utility room and a downstairs cloaks/wc complete the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor the home’s private areas include four wonderful double bedrooms, a home office, two family bathrooms and a magnificent five piece en-suite to the master bedroom.

Outside, the gardens surround the house and are a horticulturists dream - with lawns, mature planting, an orchard, and a grapevine covered pergola. The gardens immerse you in the verdant setting and are totally private with fantastic spaces for entertaining including a summer house which is located close by to the outdoor swimming pool - a wonderful venue for outdoor parties and a romantic setting for a relaxing glass of champagne after a stressful day in the office. The pretty frontage is approached via two separate private driveways that lead to an extensive forecourt parking area and a detached double garage with power, lighting, automatic up and over doors and loft space.

Despite its rural credentials, this beautiful character home is close to the pretty village of Parbold only minutes away, as well as the M6 and M58 motorways, ensuring those looking for a base for their commute will have ease of access throughout the region.
