All too often Estate Agents use the words "Unique and individual" when describing properties so using these superlatives for The Windmill in Bretherton would simply not do it justice. The windmill which dates back to approximately 1741 and is one of the last few remaining windmills in Lancashire has not just been converted or extended but rather a new contemporary, eco house has been essentially built at the side with both buildings linked by a unique glass corridor/walkway with one bespoke entrance and reception hallway.

It is now one truly remarkable and eclectic home that marries contemporary high specification open plan living space in the new house with the charm and character within the lovely curved walls of the windmill. The new house has a very modern design showcasing bright open plan living spaces which have been finished in white and features lots of windows and glass providing lovely aspects over the gardens and providing all the rooms with an abundance of natural light.

The specification and finish throughout the whole property is very high throughout including in the Windmill which our clients painstakingly converted adding an architect designed cast iron spiral staircase that leads to 3 floors that all feature a bathroom. No expense has been spared and every effort has been made to create a spectacular dwelling which not only has the Wow Factor but is also eco-friendly and efficient with full underfloor heating powered by renewable energy (ground source heat pump and solar panels).

The layout and accommodation are unlike anything else on the open market making internal viewing essential. Many of the rooms could be multi-purpose but essentially the property comprises five bedrooms all with en-suite and there is also a WC. There are also four reception rooms including a mezzanine which is currently used as a cinema room with projector and electronic screen.

Set well back off Liverpool Road behind a private road and well screened behind established trees and hedges the house feels very private and secure whilst being within the catchment of some outstanding schools and close to the popular and vibrant market town of Ormskirk and less than 25 minutes’ drive from Liverpool in total, the property occupies 1.7 acres of thereabouts which include formal gardens, an all-weather tennis court and paddock area which could extend to equestrian potential. Within the grounds there is a 3-car garage, 1 bed guest house/garden cottage and separate garden room with bar.
