DESCRIPTION Highfield House is a truly stunning detached residence, situated on a deceptively spacious plot of outstanding gardens. Positioned in an elevated location, unparalleled panoramic views of Morecambe Bay and beyond are captured from all of the main living accommodation, as well as the surrounding grounds.
The property is approached through electric gates with limestone pillars, which open onto a sweeping driveway, meandering through stunning landscaped gardens. The driveway extends to a large double garage with a remote control door.
Steps at the top of the driveway open onto a split-level patio, which encompasses the main living room and sun room. The front door opens into an inviting entrance hallway with full height picture windows and an ash staircase ascending to the first floor. The hallway also provides access to a lounge, dining room and study.
The first room that you come to off the hallway is the study, which is a practical space to work from home and enjoy the picturesque views over Morecambe Bay.
The adjoining lounge is a grand reception room, divided into two separate living areas with a clever arrangement of furniture. Both spaces provide an area to relax and unwind of an evening, or be utilised as one large space for a social gathering. Within the room is a living flame gas fire set on a polished marble hearth, and glazed doors allowing access onto the large patio.
An inner hallway off the lounge provides access to a cloakroom with a WC and wash hand basin, and a separate large storage cupboard that is ideal for household equipment.
The dining room can be accessed from both the inner and main hallways. The room is a fabulous formal dining space that can easily accommodate a large table and comfortably seat eight to ten guests.
Located off the dining room is the stunning Siematic kitchen. Expertly fitted with a range of soft-close high quality units and a high gloss granite worktop, which extends across two walls and is complemented with a matching central island. Fitted within the main worktop is a five-ring gas hob with an extractor hood over and within the island is a double sink drainer with a mixer tap. Integrated appliances include two double ovens/grill, a combination microwave oven, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and a wine chiller. The room is complemented with grey tiling with underfloor heating.
The kitchen opens into a light and airy sun room, with views and access onto the terraced garden. The kitchen also benefits from a laundry room with built-in cupboards housing two boilers, and there is plumbing available for a washing machine and dryer.
Stairs from the hallway ascend to a central landing with doors leading to three en-suite double bedrooms and a walk-in airing cupboard with ample storage space.
The impressive master bedroom boasts generous sized proportions, that can accommodate a king sized bed and a variety of furniture. The room is bathed in natural sunlight and captures stunning views across the town towards Morecambe Bay and Lakeland fells in the distance. The master bedroom opens onto its own extensive dressing room with built-in maple wardrobes to three walls.
Beyond the dressing room is a luxury five piece suite, which includes a jacuzzi bath, WC, bidet, walk-in shower and twin bowl vanity unit. The room is complemented with full tiling and underfloor heating.
The second en-suite bedroom is another large double room, which benefits from patio doors opening onto a private balcony to enjoy the views across Morecambe Bay. The en-suite includes a bath, separate corner shower cubicle, WC, bidet and wash hand basin.
The third bedroom is currently set up as a single, but offers generous sized double proportions and views over Morecambe Bay. The en-suite comprises a walk-in shower cubicle, WC and wash hand basin with vanity storage below.
In addition to the main property, Highfield House also comes with its own guest accommodation, which lies at the top of the extensive grounds. Accessed by a separate road and driveway, the annex is laid over two floors. There is a large garage/workshop underneath with fitted Howdens units and a separate WC.
The upper floor comprises an open plan lounge and kitchen with a separate double bedroom and three piece modern shower room. The Howdens kitchen features a range of base units with a one and a half sink along one wall and a central island breakfast bar with a four-ring Neff electric induction hob, an electric Neff oven/grill and a wine chiller. The lounge area provides a comfortable living space with a plasma electric fire. This annex is not only perfect for families and visitors, but it also offers a fantastic opportunity to be utilised as a separate income if the appropriate planning permission was obtained.
Outside, the grounds have been beautifully landscaped and designed to offer areas of colourful rockeries, well-stocked borders, lawned gardens and natural woodland.
