A luxurious, bespoke detached residence in beautiful private gardens.
4 3 4
This architect designed home was built to exacting standards by our clients on a stunning plot which is tucked away behind a long private driveway just off Station Road in the heart of the highly sought after semi-rural village of Banks near to Southport. Perfect for any buyers looking for a large family home of distinction this has been specifically designed to look more like a period home and oozes character which is beautifully replicated on the inside with a stylish classical decor that runs right through the accommodation.
No expense has been spared on the build or finish and the result is a truly magical home that must be viewed to be fully appreciated... if you can find it because another one of its many highlights is the location. Discreetly set down its own long private driveway which measures over 140ft, you would be forgiven for never knowing the house was there. The driveway then opens onto a large courtyard area with ample parking and leads to a good-sized garage which incidentally has the potential to build over, not that you should need as the house already boasts an expansive floorplan with stunning ground floor accommodation with four double sized bedrooms and three bathrooms upstairs.
When our clients were designing the house, they had a young family and loved to entertain, therefore the actual living space is much larger than you would typically find in modern builds with a free-flowing and versatile layout that centres around a stunning open plan living and dining kitchen with glass roof conservatory making socialising and spending time together a pleasure, whilst a big lounge with feature fireplace and wood burner, study and 2nd reception room all provide enough space for everyone in the family to escape when they want.
Upstairs is arranged around an impressive balcony landing with a reading/snug area and four spacious bedrooms all large enough to fit at least a double bed and all with good ceiling heights. The whole of the upstairs is bright and spacious and is finished to the same high standard as downstairs with oak internal doors and three bathrooms including two ensuite shower rooms and a family bathroom.
With a name like "Orchard Cottage" understandably the grounds and gardens are beautiful. The house is completely private and not overlooked in any direction with landscaped areas and gardens to all sides. The rear garden faces due south and therefore enjoys the sun all day with areas at either side of the house designed to enjoy the morning and late afternoon sun with the west facing garden a highlight - here our clients have created a wonderful outside living/dining area reminiscent of a Greek or Mediterranean garden with a range of fruit trees and shrubs.
It is also worth noting that when building the house, they were considering moving an elderly relative in with them and therefore designed the ground floor accommodation so that it could easily be adapted into a granny annex by using the 2nd reception room, adding a shower into the ground floor WC and knocking through and converting the garage into a bedroom. Therefore this luxury home is not only beautiful but very practical as well.
