Magnificent southerly views
Separate 2 bedroom annexe
Under Bolton Farmhouse is an exceptional, detached, stone-built farmhouse thought to date from the 1800s. The house enjoys a wonderful position on the edge of Bolton village, and faces south east, overlooking the rolling countryside, woodlands and its own land. The house has extensive accommodation arranged over ground and first floors, which extends to approximately 2,934 sq ft. The house has some lovely period features, including high ceilings, picture rails and cornicing and is an ideal family house.
The ground floor accommodation is approached through a porch which leads into the main reception hall. Off the reception hall, there is a drawing room with 2 south east facing windows and an open fireplace with a marble surround. There is a dining room, also with south east facing views, which has an open fireplace with a tiled surround and 2 press cupboards. Adjacent to the dining room is an office, which could be used as a small family sitting room. The heart of the ground floor accommodation is the kitchen/sitting room. The kitchen has an oil-fired, 4-oven Aga and there is a range of wall and floor units. These incorporate a stainless steel, twin sink, large fridge, and there is space and plumbing for a dishwasher. There is also space for an electric cooker next to the Aga. There is a large sitting room area, which has an electric fireplace with wood surround and fitted bookshelves either side. Accessed from the kitchen, there is a utility room, which has a stainless steel sink, fitted cupboards and space and plumbing for a washing machine, tumble drier and a freezer. The boot room/back hall houses the oil-fired boiler and there is fitted cupboard space. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a shower room between the kitchen and the hall.
On the first floor, there are 4 double bedrooms and a single bedroom. These are accessed off a landing, which is lit by a picture window. Also accessed off the landing is a family bathroom with a bath, basin and WC.
Contained within an outbuilding, off the courtyard, are 2 further double bedrooms. These each have an en suite shower room, hanging space and views out over the garden and would be ideal for running a small Bed & Breakfast enterprise from.
The principal entrance for the property is through a wrought iron gate and from here a gravelled driveway leads to the back of the house. The garden on either side of this drive is most attractive, with an herbaceous border on one side and a large lawn interspersed with shrub borders on the other side. There is a hard-standing courtyard to the side of the house which is accessed via a separate track. To the southwest of the house, is a patio surrounded by a shrub border, containing a BBQ area. The principal garden lies to the south east and has 2 large lawns. There is a rose bed immediately in front of the house, various other shrub borders and a number of fruit trees.
Included in the sale is a paddock, which lies to the east of the house, and extends up to the mid-point of the Coulston Water. This has two access points, one at the north end and one just to the north of the courtyard. Please note that the owners of the property would consider renting the land which extends to the south of the paddock.
