10 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Mount Farm, Station Road, Hesketh Bank, PR4 6ST

8 10 5

Enjoying an elevated position in a semi-rural location on the edge of the thriving village of Hesketh Bank with beautiful views over the shorelands to the Ribble Estuary, Mount Farm is a delightful blend of the historic and modern set round a spacious courtyard.

Mount Farm is a striking collection of homes and barns around a central courtyard. Originally The Hesketh Arms, an important coaching inn approximately half way between Southport and Preston, the property retains many of the original features including the original sea wall, a fabulous cellar, and outbuildings which used to offer stabling for up to fourteen horses. With the Coach House offering separate accommodation and the main residence having an annexe this really is an opportunity not to miss.

Step under the date stone into the farmhouse vestibule and the spacious lounge beyond.  With gas fired stoves at each end this room retains the original ovens from when this was a working inn and farm.  From there you can access the generous dining room with open fire in imposing hearth and French doors opening on to the garden.

To the rear of the property is the real heart of the house.  A fabulous breakfast kitchen with exposed beams, granite work surfaces, underfloor heating, range cooker and central island giving seating for six opens to the dining area with a door to the terrace and period glass house so you can quickly access the fruits of your labours, and concluding with the wonderful sun room overlooking the garden, the delightfully named Dunkirk Dib and the shorelands of the Ribble Estuary.

Off to the side is a sizeable utility which, as well as having a second set of stairs to the first floor, leads down through stately double doors to the stunning cellar with arched roof which would make a perfect bar or cinema room.

To the first floor are six double bedrooms, two of which are over the annex, with each having views over either the garden and farmland or the courtyard and with plenty of natural light.  Supporting this are two beautiful bathrooms varying in style from the period to the modern, each with spacious showers and all you would expect in a property of this calibre.

The main stairs lead down to an internal hallway giving on to both the main reception room and the dining room from which a door leads into the self-contained annex.  What a delightful space this is, with two bedrooms, bright and welcoming lounge, fully fitted wet room and well proportioned breakfast kitchen with access to both the side garden and the courtyard, and fitted with contemporary units with granite work surfaces and a range of integrated appliances.

Across the courtyard is the lovely detached Coach House with the original external stairs still providing one means of access to the first floor.  The property has been completely reconfigured to take advantage of the views with the two double bedrooms and bathroom being on the ground floor and stairs leading up to the dramatic open plan space of the first floor.  Exposed beams generate the sense of history and the space divides quite naturally into a number of discrete areas for cooking, dining and relaxing with the benefit of beautiful views.

Externally, Mount Farm has plenty more to offer and you get a sense of its heritage.  The impressive courtyard is accessed via wrought iron gates and provides parking for numerous vehicles.  With approximately 4,000 square feet of floorspace the barns provide privacy, storage and shelter and offer untapped potential for any purchaser as well as support for espalier pear trees.  There are numerous other outbuildings including the greenhouse with deep raised beds perfect for planting and a substantial and heavy cropping vine in pride of place.  Across the terrace from the greenhouse a fruiting kiwi bush also benefits from the shelter and warmth o...

Mount Farm has been a wonderful home for many generations of the same family for the last 110 years and it is now time for new owners to put their stamp on it with the same love and care as its current owners.  It remains a property of both substance and style with the added promise of untapped potential.  There are ample opportunities for the complex to be developed as holiday lets or Air BnB which could deliver substantial income to any new owner, or to convert the remaining barns into additional accommodation.
