Farmhouse conversion boasts underfloor warmth
An opulent home with underfloor heating in Lancashire, which was created by converting a barn and farmhouse, has become available for £1.5 million.
Set in six acres of gardens and grounds, the five-bedroom property has plenty of space, with an annex featuring an additional bedroom, making it ideal for entertaining guests. Tucked away in Lancashire’s Scorton village on the River Wyre, the farmhouse benefits from stunning views on account of its elevated location. From panoramic countryside vistas of the local fells to sweeping views across nearby Morecambe Bay, future residents will be able to identify the Lake District National Park and Blackpool tower from their home.
Although the impressive property has only now entered the market, the extensive conversion project took place 16 years ago. All work undertaken considered the original structure of the building, while future proofing it with modern features.
Green oak was used to extend the historic barn, ensuring it matched its natural setting, and wooden beams, open stone fireplaces and mullioned windows were retained within to keep its original character.
Blended in with this traditional look and feel, a wide selection of modern amenities have been chosen to update the property, including in-built surround sound, a jacuzzi-style tub and an energy saving luxury underfloor heating system for unrivalled comfort underfoot.
The handsome property can be accessed from a private lane, with a pathway leading up to its heavy oak door. Tall arched windows that overlook the gardens ensure that residents will enjoy an abundance of natural light, while a feature spiral staircase leads to a mezzanine study upstairs.
