A new property has been listed for sale in Merseyside that comes with a whopping 14 acres of land.
Dating back to the early 18th century, the home was once part of the Bold Hall Estate. Given its historic importance, the house is Grade II listed and includes many period features.
Its building has been attributed to Giacomo Leoni who designed Lyme Park Hall and was also the architect for this former house of the Bold Family. Sitting on the 14 acres is the main family house but also a number of out buildings including a summer house and detached garage.
Found on Hall Lane, in Bold, St Helens, Home Farm offers plenty of seclusion with a cul-de-sac down a private road. The current owners have ‘sensitively extended’ and refurbished the house to create a modern and family home, while keeping the original characteristics.
It’s on the market with Ashtons Estate Agency, for £1,650,000. For that price you get the main property and everything within the large plot of land. Of the 14 acres, 10 is made up of flat arable land, there’s also a private woodland to the side which makes up the remaining four acres.
Surrounding the property to the back and side, are the gardens that have been landscaped, to include a large patio area, turfed lawn, a Japanese-styled garden, and then a separate formal garden area to the side with a koi carp water feature and state of the art filter that’s been recently fitted. The summer house is also nestled in the corner of the garden.
It comes with electricity and heating and could be changed into a home office if necessary. A gated garden area is also complete with a log store, separate to the main house.
Outbuildings and parking at the front of the property, behind private gates, offering more shortage and enough car spaces for numerous vehicles. Most of Home Farm is made up of a large open plan kitchen and sitting area. This room has skylight windows, a log burner and a central island.
This room boasts panoramic views over the land. There’s then a separate formal dining room, boot room, lounge , and study or snug. All four bedrooms are on the first floor, three of which have en-suite facilities. The forth bedroom has access to a four piece bathroom.
The Ashtons listing reads: “The current owners purchased this property as a project and have sensitively extended and refurbished the house to create a modern and family home. Over a period of time, they have transformed Home Farm to create something very special all whilst staying within the listed guidelines.
“The renovation that’s taken place has really brought this character property up to modern standards whilst retaining its history and heritage.” View more images and information about the property on Rightmove here.
