Welcome to one of the most iconic period homes in Eccleston which sits proudly right in the heart of the village. Boasting one of the largest plots locally (0.64 acres) this fabulous home offers characterful accommodation and a large detached coach house that totals 3329 square feet of versatile accommodation which makes it perfect from large families to those with multi generational or foster requirements.

Highgrove has plenty to offer the discerning buyer. Dating back to the Victorian era of space, style and elegance, it features beautiful original features throughout and is screened from the road by mature hedging with its entrance marked by imposing gateposts leading to a circular driveway flanked by lush lawns.

As you step into the vestibule, you’ll be greeted by a welcoming hallway adorned with beautiful wooden paneling. The house has a natural flow, with the drawing room seamlessly transitioning into the lounge, both of which boast real fires. The dining room, positioned at the rear, offers views of the garden and is separated from the kitchen by a cozy snug equipped with a multifuel stove. The breakfast kitchen features a variety of wall and base units, complemented by integrated appliances such as a refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, hob, and double electric oven and grill. Adjacent to the kitchen, you’ll find the boot room, utility room, and a convenient store. Completing the ground floor are the laundry room and a cloakroom with a wash hand basin and WC.

Venturing outside, the property boasts substantial gardens with flowing lawns and meticulously planted beds and borders. A brick-built garden shed and a delightful summerhouse with stained glass windows enhance the outdoor charm. Interestingly, what was once the coach house and stables has been transformed into a perfect garage and workshop with stone flooring and a mezzanine level—accessed via stairs from an old double-decker bus.

Ascending the gorgeous staircase, we reach the first-floor landing and a cozy library. Bedroom one is conveniently accessed through its dressing room, while bedrooms two and three offer comfortable doubles. The spacious bathroom, overlooking the garden, features a bath, wash hand basin, WC, bidet, and a mixer shower in the cubicle. Adjacent to it is a practical linen room. For those curious to explore further, a separate set of stairs leads to the second floor, where the old servant’s quarters have been repurposed into an additional bedroom.

Set in a highly desirable village location, the property’s address has much to recommend it, too. “We have the best of both worlds here,” say the owners, “enjoying both convenience and country life. We are close to the motorways and local convenience shops, yet have miles of public footpaths through amazing countryside right on our doorstep – perfect for long weekend walks with the dogs, ending up at one of the fantastic local pubs for food and drink. We especially love the farm shops, and being able to get local produce from the butcher and greengrocers. Being in the catchment area for the sought after high school is the main reason we initially moved to the area, but we have found the village to be very sociable too, with everything from afternoon teas to drinks in the wine bar.
