The Old Corn Mill stands as a testament to exquisite craftsmanship, boasting an exceptionally high build quality and a unique, captivating interior totalling 3,800 square feet of luxuriously appointed accommodation that demands an in-person visit to fully appreciate its grandeur. This custom-crafted residence sets the benchmark for luxury, showcasing an extraordinary architectural vision and bold design. It’s a rarity for properties of such distinction to enter the open market in Mawdesley, a village in Lancashire that is highly coveted for its charm and community.

This property is not just a home; it’s a piece of history, seamlessly blending two barns into one monumental structure that has been a cornerstone of village life for generations. Its origins as a smithy, which is believed to have given the street its name, and its later transformation into a corn mill, are woven into the fabric of the village’s narrative. Significant financial and creative investment has been made to honor this heritage while reimagining the space for modern living. The result is a contemporary, functional family home that respects its past while embracing the future.

Nestled right in the centre of the village, down a secluded drive, The Old Corn Mill reveals itself as an unexpected treasure, with its main entrance discreetly concealed from view. The interior unfolds over two primary levels, offering a spacious and versatile floor plan that ensures privacy for all. Each room within this home is a distinct entity, characterised by lofty ceilings and, in some cases, cleverly integrated mezzanine levels that enhance the living space. The heart of the home beats in the form of an awe-inspiring, industrial-style open kitchen. This culinary haven features bespoke cabinetry, premium granite countertops, top-of-the-line integrated Siemens appliances, and authentic exposed brickwork paired with York stone flooring. The centerpiece is a magnificent island, crowned with an ancient limestone worktop and encased in solid oak. Adjacent to the kitchen lies an additional family/sunroom, distinguished by its impressive bi-folding doors that create a seamless transition to the outdoors, amplifying the sense of space and light. Just off the kitchen there is a separate utility room and a boot room for convenience. Centrally located in the property there is a grand reception hallway with exposed brick & stone feature walls plus a stunning oak staircase that leads upstairs. Completing the accommodation downstairs there is a recently installed family bathroom, resplendent with Italian Marble-style tiling and designer fixtures plus a separate cloakroom/WC serving four spacious bedrooms that all have their own unique character and identity.

Upstairs, a striking first-floor lounge with exposed beams and wood burner provides a stunning open plan space for all the family to enjoy with access to a wide range of distinctive rooms, including a study area, office, chic den with a rusted steel wall & built-in bar, plus a hidden cinema room for the ultimate movie nights. The master bedroom is a sanctuary of sophistication and features a romantic Juliet balcony offering panoramic views of the gardens, and an opulent en-suite bathroom. Sustainability is woven into the home’s design, with solar panels and a state-of-the-art eco-friendly air source heat pump providing efficient heating. A blend of traditional cast iron radiators and underfloor heating ensures comfort throughout the main living areas and bathrooms. Externally, The Old Corn Mill maintains a low profile, with ample parking and a detached garage and workshop. Newly installed wrought iron gates and railings provide security and privacy. The south-facing gardens span half an acre, featuring rolling lawns bisected by a charming brook and enjoying aspects over neighbouring countryside. A stone patio area extends from the family room, offering an idyllic setting for outdoor living and entertainment.
