This wonderful six-bedroom farmhouse, which extends to over 3,100 sq ft, is nestled in 2.2 acres of land on a pretty country lane in gorgeous Lancashire countryside. The original part of Snape Farm dates back to the early 1800's and has been lovingly renovated and upgraded by the current owners, who with the help of an architect added a bespoke extension that links the main house to some skilfully converted original outbuilding and stables to create a delightful contemporary home that is deeply sensitive to the building’s character.

The new extension and renovation of the outbuildings were purposely designed to provide versatile, high-quality housing that is suitable as a granny annexe or separate one bedroomed accommodation with its own kitchen and bathroom space, or can simply be incorporated into the main residence as ancillary space providing a wealth of wonderful living and entertaining space.

The original farmhouse has been sympathetically updated and remodelled over the years to retain all its wonderful character and period details whilst boasting a practical layout that will appeal to today’s modern buyers. A stylish orangery extension with a full glazed wall and apex windows is located just off the farmhouse style kitchen. With its vaulted ceiling and fantastic views over the gardens, it provides a truly delightful space for dining and/or entertaining and is just one of many highlights this property has to offer.

Outside there is a private driveway off Back Lane that leads to a large courtyard parking area to the rear. There are lovely formal gardens that back onto open countryside featuring patio areas enjoying sunny southerly aspects plus there is a large enclosed turfed paddock to the rear. Within the grounds there is a detached garage, greenhouse and garden room.

Found on the outskirts of the village of Newburgh this property feels brilliantly rural – surrounded by farmland – yet is only a short walk away from the centre of the village with the charming Red Lion Hotel, outstanding primary school and iconic post-office store & coffee-shop at its heart. Parbold village and its many amenities including restaurants, country pubs and a train station with links to Wigan, Manchester & London is only a further 10 minute walk whilst the M6 motorway is easily accessible and less than a 15 minute drive away.
