Magical and characterful, Walkers Higher Farmhouse is a unique, Grade-II listed home etched in local history and seated within the heart of Aspull village.

Drive down the popular Scot Lane and turn onto the cobbled driveway of this impressive seven-bedroom family home.

Set within a hamlet of handsome detached homes, Walkers Higher Farmhouse is a true landmark in the village dating back to 1755.

Park up ahead of the double garage, and make for the traditional 6-panel front door. Inside awaits an impressive home that retains classic Georgian farm-house-style features, creating a character home emanating warmth and welcome.

Fully renovated in 2008 with new heating, electrics and plumbing this property includes underfloor heating with separate thermostats and individual heating on each floor.

Step into the stunning entrance hall, where the high beamed ceilings of this three-storey home are instantly revealed.

Glimpses of this home's past can be seen with charming features on display throughout the expansive 3600 sq ft space.

Traditional stone flagged flooring, warmed by underfloor heating, flows through from the hallway into the reception rooms giving a rustic flavour to this period home.

Follow the door to the right into the lounge, a spacious yet cosy and welcoming room. Original beams cross the ceiling, extending from above the traditional fireplace. Nestled within, a toasty 'Clearview' log-burning stove sits upon a slate hearth, heating the room and providing a cosy atmosphere during the winter months. Where better to snuggle up and watch a film with the fire lit? Light streams in through the elegant sash windows at the front.

Across the way, discover another sizeable reception room currently arranged as a formal dining room. Neatly crafted white wall panelling highlights the fireplace, a striking feature to centre an 8-seater dining table around.

From the entrance hall, the second door on the right leads into the country-style dining kitchen. Units are arranged in a u-shape topped with a black Corian worktop. Centre stage, set within the chimney is a 5-ring Range-style oven with tiled splashback. An under counter sink is sat by the window looking out over the rear garden with built-in dishwasher below. There's space for an American-style fridge freezer. With an array of cream shaker-style cupboards and drawers alongside the original stone slabs underfoot, a modern flavour is given to this traditional kitchen.

Across the way, a handy utility room houses the washing machine and tumble dryer with built-in cupboard. Access the downstairs cloakroom from here where wash basin and WC are on hand to freshen up.

Returning to the hallway, note the access to the cellar beneath the spindled staircase, before ascending to the first floor. Turning left, discover the first of six sumptuously spacious double bedrooms. Beams adorn the ceiling with the traditional sash window framing the views. Neutral wall finishes team with the stained timber flooring for a warming finish. A black traditional cast iron fireplace provides a focal point alongside the built-in shelving unit and covered radiator.

Across the way, a second bedroom currently utilised as a family room is almost a mirror image, this time with feature sage green wall and soft carpeting. Modern radiators are nestled into each alcove under radiator grills.

Next door, bedroom three, a large double is currently arranged as an office with plenty space for a full set of furniture and views out over the rear garden.

Serving the bedrooms to the first floor, a spacious 5-piece family bathroom comes fitted with a Jacuzzi bath, WC, bidet, bowl sink, and separate shower cubicle.

Head up the staircase to the second floor where three more bedrooms await.

The light and airy landing gives access to two more large double bedrooms to the front of the property and another to the rear with breath taking views towards Rivington and the surrounding countryside.

With so much space, this multifunctional layout offers a great deal of flexibility to make this historic home perfect for the 21st century family.

The view from the Bedroom overlooks fields all the way to Borsdane Wood.

The sixth bedroom comes with two, west-facing casement windows taking in beautiful sunsets.

There is a small seventh bedroom currently utilised as a dressing room with access through to a jack and jill ensuite shower room featuring a WC, wall mounted wash hand basin and corner shower enclosure.

The heating system throughout the property can be controlled in each space for ultimate comfort and energy efficiency.

Step Outside:

Step out into the well maintained rear garden, where railway sleepers create raised vegetable and soft fruit beds that creatively section the garden into separate spaces to grow, play and entertain.

Well stocked with mature plants, fruit trees and shrubs the plant beds provide texture and colour against the well-trimmed lawn sweeps around three sides. Gated fencing separates the side and front lawn creating an enclosed space, ideal for children and pets.
