The Beeches is an elegant, former Rectory that rests along a quiet rural Lane in 1.2 acres of formal gardens with mature, established trees that are surrounded by open greenbelt countryside. Built in 1867, the property has been transformed by the current owners who acquired it in 1991 from Blackburn diocese. Most notably the property was substantially extended and skillfully renovated perfectly blending the abundance of traditional features and detailed stonework with modern open plan contemporary living spaces.

This impressive building is steeped in local history and now offers six bedrooms, six bathrooms, a wonderful contemporary living kitchen, and four reception rooms including a stunning entertainment/media room. The living space totals 3556 SQ FT and there are substantial outbuildings offering a further 1500 SQ FT. It has a truly homely feel and is beautifully appointed throughout with fixtures and fittings of the highest quality, and design details that will satisfy even the most discerning of buyers.

Arranged over three floors, the property has many highlights including a formal entrance hallway with a beautifully turned staircase, and two elegant bay windowed formal reception rooms which reflect the grandeur of its former days as a rectory. The open plan living kitchen space incorporates a professionally designed and fitted range of kitchen units complete with all the latest integrated appliances, wine coolers and corian worktops. It also includes a formal dining area as well as a sitting area that opens out onto a rather splendid covered outdoor entertaining area, a great place to enjoy the garden, that comes complete with a wood fired Valoriani Italian pizza oven. There are three working open fireplaces for cosying round during winter nights, Karndean flooring throughout most of the ground floor, partial underfloor heating, a high capacity pressurised hot water system, intruder alarm and security lighting

The stunning sound-proof garden/media room certainly has the wow factor: a home cinema projector and computer with remote screen, a spectacular hydraulic 12 seater dining table that rises from the floor, mood/disco lighting and a Bose sound system all combine to create a flexible entrainment room unlike anything you will have seen.

The first floor is arranged around a central landing with a luxuriously appointed family bathroom and four double sized bedrooms all fitted with stylish, contemporary en-suite bathrooms. The master bedroom suite also features a fitted walk-in dressing room.

The whole of the second floor could be a self-contained suite if so desired, it features two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Externally, the high quality continues into the landscaped gardens with numerous yorkstone patio areas, feature brick and stone planters, flower beds, mature trees and expansive lawns. There is even a restored working well and a half pipe skateboard ramp to keep the children entertained. There is a long cobble-edged gated driveway leading to extensive hard standing and parking both infront of the property and to the rear, with ample space for motorhomes, caravans, trucks or trailers. A real feature of The Beeches is the impressive cavity-wall-constructed and fully serviced outbuildings, which could easily be converted to a variety of alternative uses such as granny annex, home business/offices, workshop - or all three! A further double garage houses garden tools and lawnmowers.

Much Hoole although rural is really well placed for Preston, Chorley, Leyland and Southport. The motorway network M6, M61, and M65 are all just 5 miles away. The house is in the catchment area for some excellent local schools.Two award winning restaurants are within walking distance, and a Booths supermarket is just a 5 minute drive away. Town Lane is a lovely quiet country lane with access to numerous footpaths across open fields. The village has two pubs, an active village hall, bowling and tennis clubs, and a cafe and icecream parlour.
