Located on the corner of Ash Brow conservation area and Higher Lane, surrounded by land extending to 5.22 acres comprising stunning landscaped grounds including a sunken garden and stunning outside living and entertaining areas, "Uplands" is a magnificent lifestyle home perfectly located for Parbold & Newburgh villages.

Set back on an elevated plot within walled and enclosed gardens and boasting an impressive gated sweeping in and out driveway - very few properties within walking distance to a village will offer as much land or privacy as this with two paddocks and woodland located to side and rear providing a haven of tranquility and further potential for equestrian use (subject to necessary planning approval).

Affording over 8,500 square feet of internal living space with seven bedrooms, three bathrooms and five receptions rooms in total, Uplands is also one of the largest properties in the area. Raised the house has incredible views of the surrounding gardens and towards Parbold Hill and Ashurst Beacon Country Park with terraces and immaculately maintained formal garden areas that provide stunning outside entertaining, living and dining space. The outside is most notable for its incredible Italian Renaissance sunken garden area to the front with stunning use of water as a focal point.

Inside, this wonderfully private residence has extensive accommodation which has been meticulously renovated by our clients over many years to create a bespoke, handcrafted interior that exudes class and showcases a wide range formal living spaces and character features.

The Uplands is ideally situated amidst beautiful countryside and pretty villages. The plot backs directly onto open fields and views whilst the village of Parbold is less than a mile away and has everything you need including fine eateries, coffee shops, an opticians, deli, Morrison’s mini market, doctors surgery, a dentist, as well as other small shops. Slightly further afield is Ormskirk, which has all the amenities of a small market town including trendy bars and restaurants. There are many outstanding schools in the local area with buses to both Merchant Taylors' & Scarisbrick Hall plus Parbold station has direct links to Manchester, Southport and Wigan with access to London Euston Station taking approximately 2 hours.
