A historic and equestrian dream home.
Spencer House Farm: A Historic and Equestrian Dream Home.
If you are looking for a historic rural family home with equestrian facilities, you will not want to miss this rare opportunity to own Spencer House Farm.
The property has never been on the open market before and offers a unique chance to live in a beautiful and tranquil setting. Situated on just under 10 acres of land with a brook running through one of the boundaries, surrounded by the glorious West Lancashire greenbelt countryside, it enjoys breathtaking views of Cumbria to the rear and Parbold Hill and Ashurst Beacon to the front.
Consisting of a charming former farmhouse built in 1839, with character and many original features, an adjoining stone built barn, and a detached coaching house, all of these buildings have total privacy with no overlooking neighbours.
The land and gardens are ideal for equestrian use, with plenty of parking space for cars, trailers, and horse boxes. There is a double garage, a professionally built large riding arena (35m x 25m) plus high quality stables and equestrian buildings comprising 5 stables (but there is potential to increase this number to 7 by changing the use of some existing buildings), a tack room and a covered area with lighting.
The farmhouse is a lovely home that has been finished with attention to detail throughout. It has tasteful decor, light filled living areas, and rooms that are perfect for both entertaining and everyday family living. Some of the highlights include a gorgeous lounge with handcrafted bookshelf, a hand built farmhouse kitchen with marble / solid wooden worktops and original range, a ground floor shower room, a traditional dining room leading to a glass roofed double glazed conservatory with views over the formal gardens, and an original staircase and landing with Craftman wooden panelling. Upstairs, there is a lovely family bathroom, three large double bedrooms, and two very large dressing rooms that could be converted into additional bedrooms or bathrooms. The house also benefits from a small cellar with vaulted ceiling, CCTV plus alarm system and high speed dedicated fibre broadband. The barn that is attached to the house has a lot of additional space that could be used for different forms of development, subject to approvals. It has power, lighting, and water.
The coaching house that is located separately is a brick built building that has planning approval (REF: 22/01017/FUL). Full details can be viewed on the Chorley Council planning website.
Spencer House Farm is located in a rural area, but close to Parbold, Mawdesley and Eccleston as well as the market town of Ormskirk. The area has very strong farming traditions and the surrounding countryside is dotted with attractive rural properties plus there are also many village pubs and lovely walks nearby. There are excellent schools at every level nearby and the location is very accessible for commuters, with only a 3 mile drive to junction 27 of the M6 motorway that connects Liverpool and Manchester city centres. The property is also close to Parbold railway station. This unique home can be sold as a whole site or consideration would be given to exclude the coach house with one acre of land.
