Wow! Set in approximately one acre of gardens and grounds, this is a unique opportunity to purchase an individual property with amazing potential. Bankfield House is located in the popular village of Scarisbrick on a quiet rural lane surrounded by fields and gardens and yet within minutes of local amenities and with excellent access for commuting further afield. Its range of buildings and the surrounding land offers many possibilities to potential purchasers.
Entering the property through a bright glazed porch which takes you directly into the inviting dining room, complete with a characterful open fire. This room has a window to the front looking onto fields, usually complete with grazing horses!
From here you have a choice, through to the lounge or to the kitchen. The light and airy lounge runs from front to rear with windows to the three sides and access to the conservatory. From this room two windows look onto the patio and beautifully landscaped garden. The adjoining conservatory gives both access and views into the garden and is the ideal spot for relaxing in and enjoying the peaceful surroundings all year round.
The kitchen is fitted with base, wall and drawer units and a range of appliances. From here you will find both the utility room and cloakroom and rear porch with useful hanging space for coats and wellies following walks in the adjoining countryside.
The first floor boasts four good sized bedrooms as well as a four piece family bathroom.
The master bedroom has a range of fitted wardrobes offering excellent storage and is dual aspected with views over the garden and the surrounding countryside. One room is currently utilised as a study and again enjoys rural views. The external features immediately around the house are a garage and extensive parking to one side and a lovely secluded and well stocked garden to the other. The enclosed gardens were professionally landscaped thirty years ago and have now matured into a wonderful addition to this much loved family home. There are shaped lawns with established borders containing specimen trees, shrubs and plants and there are a number of specially chosen fruit trees including a number of heritage apple trees.
The property has lots of other grassed areas outside so there is plenty of room for football or practising golf strokes without damaging the plants! Properties of this type within this location are rarely offered for sale and this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a unique home with endless potential. Immediately to the rear of the house is an annexe, this is over 550 sq. ft. of single storey space that originally housed a snooker table but is currently being used as a games room/home gym with a useful store room and a further garage. This would make a wonderful granny annexe or teenage suite, obviously subject to the relevant planning permission.
Moving to the rest of the plot you will find land and buildings that have been used for commercial purposes in the past and comprise of a large full height barn offering almost 1550sq ft of useable or developable space. There is also a commercial greenhouse and a number of smaller buildings including a toilet block to be found. The site currently has permission to be a Camping and Caravanning Club certified site, however this is one of those unusual plots with that could with a little imagination could well find itself being turned into
something else in years to come!
A chat with the seller has given us a wonderful insight …
“Purchasing this house in 1989 fulfilled a long held ambition to live in a rural, yet convenient location. Once the house had been two Victorian cottages, until they were cleverly converted into this spacious family dwelling several years ago. Standing at the end of a quiet lane, on a large parcel of land of approximately one acre, the house is surrounded by open, rural, countryside.”
“Now such a comfortable family home, with a convenient, adaptable, order to its layout, with rooms for every purpose. I adore cooking and have spent many hours creating wonderful meals often using fruit from the garden, my apple pies using our specially selected apples are always a family favourite. The addition of the all year conservatory has been so useful, especially with its outlook into the garden, it’s a wonderful place to escape from the world and enjoy the tranquility of the location. An annexe was also added which has been utilised for many activities as the family have evolved, but its further potential is enormous.”
“The position of Bankfield House has much to offer too, being set in the Lancashire village of Scarisbrick, this really is an idyllic location, with such a fabulous outlook and access into amazing countryside, alongside being equidistant between the traditional market town of Ormskirk and the elegant Victorian town of Southport. There is a wide selection of education opportunities nearby, one being the award winning Edge Hill University and we are within walking distance to the well regarded Scarisbrick Hall School. Sport and gym facilities are excellent and Royal Birkdale Golf Club is close by, as are a number of outstanding local restaurants. Travel is extremely convenient with excellent road and rail links and both Manchester and Liverpool airports are easily accessible yet we are so quiet and secluded, we
certainly have the best of both worlds!”
“The beautifully landscaped gardens with its mature herbaceous borders, lawns and patio area are an extension to the internal space making this the perfect property for everyday family life and anyone who enjoys entertaining. The summer months provide opportunities for barbecues and garden parties being able to relax in the ample grounds and enjoy stargazing on those quiet, still and warm, summer evenings. Equally wonderful, winter evenings bring crisp, clear star filled skies which can be admired from the hot tub or from around the fire-pit. With a large amount of internal and external space available, this provides the perfect venue when entertaining large groups of friends and family, always resulting in happy and relaxed occasions.
It has certainly been a magical place to raise a family in such idyllic surroundings yet with every convenience of modern living nearby.”
