Standing High And Mighty With Gorgeous Views, This Extended & Much Improved Versatile Victorian Residence Is Ideal For Larger Families. The ground floor and gardens are super-sociable, the upper floors are ideal for giving everyone their own space.

This substantial family home sits proudly above Fernyhalgh Lane. It's a semi-rural setting that feels tranquil and leafy, yet it’s only 20 minutes drive to the city centre and less than 10 minutes to the M6.

If you’ve always dreamed of living out your own period drama, this could be the perfect location set in its own leafy grounds.

The journey up the sweeping drive will make returning home feel special at the end of a busy day. And you’ll never tire of stepping inside the beautifully restored hall.

The hall is full of period character and charm, with gorgeous stained glass, original wooden floor, high ceilings, ornate plasterwork and equally elaborate woodwork.

There’s a spacious bay-fronted reception room on either side of the hall.

In fact, there’s no shortage of reception rooms for the family to get together. In addition to the lounge and dining room there’s a separate smaller sitting room (which gives access to the gardens) and a study hidden away at the rear.

But even with such a choice of places to get together or relax, it’s likely everyone will head straight to the kitchen...

It’s a traditional farmhouse style kitchen that will become the heart of this family home. It ticks all the ‘homely charm’ boxes thanks to the Belfast sink and Aga, along with a more modern freestanding island unit.

There’s space for a dining table by the French doors to the garden - perfect for grabbing a quick slice of toast in the morning or sitting down for a midweek meal.

None of the precious kitchen cupboard space is wasted thanks to a handy utility room which also gives access to the built in double garage.

The first floor has five bedrooms. Three are really good size doubles. There’s also a smaller double bedroom and a single which would make a great nursery, or perhaps a 2nd home office.

One of the double bedrooms has its own stylish ensuite bathroom. That's in addition to the main family bathroom and a separate shower room which are also on the first floor.

The top floor has a further two good size double bedrooms in the attic space. If you didn’t need both to be bedrooms one could be a spacious lounge or games room where older children can hang out (and make as much noise as they want!).

It’s set in its own substantial gardens which wrap around three sides of the property - making it the ideal venue for summer entertaining. There’s even a w/c accessed from the terrace so guests don’t have to go through the house to spend a penny.

You may think that the semi-rural setting would make the school run a daily chore. Far from it! Longsands Community Primary School (rated “Good” by Ofsted) is closest and it’s less than five minutes away in the car.

You’ll also find a handy Tesco Express, community centre and The Anderton Arms pub next to the school, so you don’t have to go far for your day-to-day essentials.

If you are heading further afield or you rack up the motorway miles with work, it’s less than 10 minutes drive to junction 42 of the M6.

If you need to head into town to hit the shops or catch up with friends, it takes less than 20 minutes to drive to the city centre.

It’s the same distance to the station, where fast and frequent West Coast Mainline trains will take you to London and Glasgow, along with more local northwest services to Liverpool and Manchester.

This substantial family home really is something truly special. You’re unlikely to find anything with the same combination of a spacious, versatile layout and a private, elevated position.

It’s also rare to find a substantial period property like this in such an immaculate condition - you could move in and make yourselves at home without the need for any decorating or DIY.
