About this property

Ashley Cottage is a beautiful detached period residence that dates back to the early 1900’s. Lovingly converted from a former coach house by the current owners and home to the third generation of the same family, the property presents as a unique and rare opportunity to the market. Situated discretely within peaceful grounds totalling just under 0.4 acres, on a private gated plot of mature gardens, the property offers privacy and extensive secure parking. Unusually the property also boasts a range of outbuildings, to include a large Waring’s barn, and smaller workshop, allowing potential owners to access to a wide range of flexible work and/or lifestyle opportunities to include business storage, studio, gym or extensive garaging. The property itself, presents as a seamless blend of warmth and charm, with generously proportioned and highly versatile accommodation, that is well suited to flexible family living.
Situated in a sought after location at the edge of Bryning with Warton, the property lies within a short distance of the picturesque village of Wrea Green and Ribby Hall Leisure and the desirable town of Lytham, which hosts a range of amenities to include an extensive range of bars and restaurants. The commercial University City of Preston and Seaside towns of St. Anne’s and Blackpool are within a fifteen-mile radius. It is also well placed for major transport links making it a superb option for those looking to commute across the North West.
The potential for this property is unrivalled and provides a unique opportunity for buyers to purchase a spectacular and individual home with excellent commercial buildings all within the same private setting. Properties of this type and quality are rare and therefore an early inspection is strongly advised to avoid disappointment.

The popular village of Warton is ideally placed between town and country, giving access to major transport links which include the M55 and M6 motorway networks making it ideal for commuter access across the North of England. There are a variety of amenities close to hand including shops, local eateries and renowned schooling within the popular coastal town of Lytham which is only a short drive away. This location has long been popular with homebuyers looking for the perfect balance of modern convenience, as well as being close to fabulous open countryside and splendid coastal walks.

Reception Rooms
The principal lounge is a wonderful, spacious yet cosy room that has a stunning fireplace and exposed feature beam. Patio doors allow for generous light and access to the gardens. Adjacent to the lounge a sitting/study room offers an alternative area for relaxing. A further generously proportioned rear office, provides yet more reception space that is also utilised as a fourth bedroom and completes the flexible reception rooms.

Dining Room, Breakfast Kitchen & Utility Room
The hub of the house is the kitchen and dining area, a large, light and airy space which is fitted with a range of wall and base units comprising cupboards, drawers and contrasting work surface, the centre piece of the kitchen featuring a gas fired AGA. Access from the kitchen to the rear of the property is via a large porch that runs the width of the property and offers a light utility space and cloak storage. A further downstairs WC is located next to the study. The spacious kitchen compromises of cooking and breakfast space whilst opening into a well-proportioned dining room, which is well suited to easy entertaining.

Master Suite
The master suite is generous, light and airy featuring dual aspect windows offering superb views to the front over the gardens. A well-proportioned corner en suite featuring one and half shower, toilet and sink, complement the space.

There are two further extremely good sized double bedrooms, again both with dual aspect windows, to the first floor which each have their own unique style and character. As mentioned earlier, a reception room on the ground floor could be utilised as a fourth bedroom if required.

Family Bathroom
Located on the first floor a further family bathroom features panelled walls, bath with shower over, pedestal wash hand basin and low level wc, in a classic white heritage design. Excellent storage cupboards complement the room.

The Parking and Gardens
The property is situated within a generous gated plot which features access from both the front and rear driveways to a courtyard that offers extensive secure off road parking for a number of vehicles. The large private south facing gardens simply must be seen in person to be fully appreciated, featuring areas laid to lawn alongside mature shrubs and trees. A quaint wooden building offers summer house storage and a peaceful seated area, with access to full sun for most of the day. The secluded and secure nature of the site offer ideal areas for both families and friends with generous areas for children’s play.

Included within the grounds is a large barn that is in excellent condition, having its own power and water supply. This could be utilised as a workshop/studio/small holding making it ideal for buyers wanting a substantial commercial building close to home. It would also offer yet more extensive secure parking if needed. This could also provide the potential for further redevelopment for an additional dwelling if required (subject to relevant planning consent). There are also a number of further timber built out buildings within the generous grounds.
