Set in a total plot of 1.1 acres (0.45ha) OTA, this superb double fronted family home was constructed around 1812 and exudes Georgian charm throughout. Boasting over 2,600 sq ft of beautifully presented accommodation over three floors with four bedrooms and four reception rooms. Situated in Dalton, it is conveniently positioned for Parbold and Newburgh and access to the motorway network via the M6.

Entry to the property is taken through the wooden front door via an entrance porch with period fanlight window over. The living room occupies the full frontage of the property, providing two distinct spaces, benefitting from a cosy snug area with multi-fuel stove to one side. Cream carpet is fitted throughout, with light painted walls and exposed ceiling beams along with windows to two elevations.

The sitting room is another delightful space, with a centrepiece 'Morso' multi-fuel stove providing a cosy ambience and making this a pleasant space to relax in. There is an African slate floor along with cream painted walls and ceiling with exposed beam overhead.

The kitchen is a superb space, providing a stylish fusion between new and original parts of the property with a large vaulted ceiling featuring windows which is excellently juxtaposed against original exposed stonework to one wall, again boasting African slate flooring. The kitchen offers a range of wall, drawer and base units incorporating Quartz work tops and a breakfast bar. A 'Stoves' induction range cooker is framed by a stunning splashback with units and extractor over. An integrated dishwasher and fridge can also be found along with a one and a half sink with drainer. An external door leads to the side driveway, with an open entrance vestibule providing useful cloakroom storage and space for muddy boots!

Moving to the rear of the property, further accommodation can be found, originally a separate building detached from the main house but now expertly and tastefully incorporated into the property via the glazed link-extension. This area of the house lends itself to multiple uses, offering potential for those with extended family, elderly relatives or home workers.

The downstairs is currently used as a dining room, with carpeted flooring and solid wood skirting and architraves. A bathroom can be found off, with corner shower, wall mounted vanity unit, WC and bidet. The bathroom boasts under floor heating, tiled floor along with matching floor to ceiling tiled walls.

An impressive double height window links both floors, with bespoke oak staircase leading up to an impressive mezzanine floor above. This is an impressive space, with vaulted ceilings and exposed solid wood beams and trusses as well as balcony railings overlooking the double storey elements of the room. French doors lead out to the garden and onto a delightful decking area—perfect for unwinding after a long day.

Moving back to the main house, a half-turn staircase leads up to the first floor accommodation. The principle bedroom features dual sash windows overlooking the front with fitted bookcase and cupboards. Two further bedrooms are located to this floor, each of a generous size and boasting built in wooden cupboards, drawers and wardrobes.

The bathroom is fitted with a three piece suite which includes a large freestanding roll top bath, wash hand basin and WC. There are attractive part tiled elevations and flooring plus ornate coving and spot lighting to the ceiling.

A door leads from the landing up to the second floor bedroom. This excellent space boasts velux windows, exposed wood beams and flooring as well as a good deal of practical built in storage. A useful ensuite is located off, with a three piece suite to include shower, WC and pedestal sink as well as plenty of built in storage.

Externally, the property boasts driveways to both sides, with an attached garage located to the right hand side with parking area to the front. To the left, a York stone paved driveway leads down the side of the property, providing ample parking for multiple vehicles. Stone steps lead from here through to the rear grounds which are a magical mixture of woodland, formal gardens and open space. Immediately behind the property is an area of garden with a lawn bordered by shrubs and bushes which provide a feeling of seclusion and privacy.

Moving through from here is a wonderful area of woodland, carpeted by bluebells, ferns and other natural flora and fauna. An informal path winds its way through and along the course of a delightful babbling stream which meanders through the woodland area. Several substantial detached wooden store buildings are nestled within the trees, serving as useful machinery and wood stores. From here, a bridge crosses the stream and leads to a paddock area with a large ornamental pond which is fed naturally by the nearby stream. This paddock also benefits from a right of access from the neighbouring field, providing vehicular access down to Higher Lane. A sunken seating area overlooks the pond, with a wooden summerhouse and vegetable patch being found to the rear.

A track leads through a wooden gate into a further paddock area containing a large polytunnel which benefits from a water supply. There is an expansive area of open grass with an orchard to the rear, thoughtfully planted by our vendors with various varieties of heritage fruit trees. Altogether, the grounds of this property are a magnificent space, instantly stirring feelings of wonder and awe of the natural world that can all be enjoyed just by stepping out from your back door!
