Stone Hall cottage is located in a beautiful rural setting within a valley close to a Country Park with extensive gardens that offer far-reaching views over Ashurst Beacon and Rivington.

The location which is hard to beat is sandwiched between greenbelt farmland and ancient woodland, giving you the feeling of being in the middle of the countryside. However, you are only a few minutes’ drive from an array of local shops, pubs, restaurants and amenities in either Parbold or Upholland villages. The M6 and M58 motorways are both within 15 minutes’ drive.

The cottage was built around 1760 and has been in the same family for generations. Although renovated by the last owners in 1958/59, it will require further extensive modernisation and presents an amazing opportunity to purchase an undeveloped and delightful character property on one of West Lancashire’s most sought-after country lanes.

The gorgeous freehold plot which extends to 0.4 acres offers plenty of scope and space to extend to either side or the rear (subject to necessary planning approval) and feature delightful gardens which are often visited by deer and have nesting pheasants. The previous owner was an expert gardener so the garden is planted with a wide variety of different plants which flower at different times ensuring colour throughout the year and also feature a wide range of trees and shrubs, expansive lawns, patios and an orchard that includes eating & baking Apples, Pears and Plum trees. Outside there are also two driveways, stone outbuilding (a former piggery) and a detached garage.

We are advised that the property and land is Freehold. Council tax band is E. Please note that the property is not listed but is located in greenbelt. The house has a septic tank (brick built) and there is no gas. House is warmed currently by a coal fired boiler with a back boiler although we have not tested the system. We advise any prospective buyers to verify all these details with a licensed conveyancer prior to exchange of contracts.
