Resting in the Lancashire countryside, on the edge of the thriving village of Standish, Bores Barn is certainly one of the finest barn conversions in the region. Set within an exclusive gated hamlet development of just seven properties, this stylish barn conversion is positioned on one of the largest plots, which extends to approximately half an acre of grounds. The stone built barn built in 1837, was converted approximately six years ago, to our clients exact specification, to create a truly contemporary home perfect for family living and extending to an exceptionally generous 3.800 sq ft. There really is no other property currently on the market, within the area which offers the character, features and luxury accommodation to rival Bores Barn, and our clients have spared no expense in the creation, even including granite windowsill throughout the whole home.
The accommodation briefly comprises of a large kitchen / family room and utility, lounge, dining room, study, downstairs toilet/cloaks, six excellent sized bedrooms, four with en-suite and a family bathroom. Detached double garage, home-office and toilet.
The ground floor offers a stunning grand entrance via the galleried hallway featuring the original character of a barn conversion via the original barn entrance now featured as windows, flooding the area with natural light and featuring to both the front and rear of the hallway and including a stunning Light Oak grand staircase with galleried landing. The beautiful lounge offers direct access to the rear patio via French doors and the focal point is a quite unique feature fireplace, with slated accents and a warming feature fire. The heart of the home is the beautiful live in family kitchen. This stunning room features a range of bespoke cabinetry with walnut accents and including an impressive island with space for dining for five. A second staircase from the first floor enters the room. There are integrated appliances including an American Fridge Freezer, wine cooler / fridge, and a range of integrated appliances by Neff, including dual ovens, combination oven & microwave oven, steamer oven, and Quooker tap. Off the kitchen a large rear hall leads to the utility room with integrated fridge freezer, sink and plenty of storage.
