Tucked away off Flash Lane which is one of the most desirable residential locations in West Lancashire and right in the heart of Rufford, "The Chase” dates in part to 1632 and is not only one of the oldest properties in the whole village but undoubtably also one of the prettiest. A truly remarkable home that has been maintained and improved to exacting standards whilst retaining much of the property's considerable character it includes a stunning main lawned tennis court sized garden area screened by an excellent variety of cultured rhododendrons and other flowering shrubs and boasts a beautiful terrace patio for outside living/entertaining that enjoys a south facing aspect and is totally private.

Offering 2,700 square feet comprising three formal reception rooms, five bedrooms and a bespoke handmade Matthew Marsden kitchen there is an abundance of high quality living space for all the family with each room boasting its own unique character and charm.

The property is set behind a private gated entrance in secluded grounds extending to in excess of 3 acres with mature trees, lawns, well-stocked borders and a large natural pond giving you the impression, when at the property, you are in the middle of the countryside yet you are only within walking distance to the local school, pub/restaurant, marina, railway station, shop and a garage. Flash Lane is a conservation area and is situated adjacent to the mature grounds of Rufford New Hall.

Within the grounds there is a large wooden barn structure (with solar panels installed on the roof) providing substantial space and parking for multiple vehicles. This building has excellent redevelopment potential and subject to planning permission could be converted into office / commercial space or an additional dwelling (our clients have previously had pre-planning application passed for replacing this building with a new residential property overlooking the private pond).

Planning permission has also been passed and hardstanding laid for a new detached double garage with living space above to be built at the side of The Chase.

This wonderful home has also recently benefited from new elegant uPVC conversation Sash Windows and is warmed by gas central heating.
