Welcome to Jackson Hill House, a rare and exciting opportunity to acquire a substantial five-bedroom detached barn conversion with outbuildings, set within approximately 3.5 acres of idyllic countryside. This property will appeal to a variety of buyers ranging from Agricultural, Equestrian & lifestyle. Situated along the highly sought after Ratcliffe Wharf Lane, this rural location offers some of Lancashire's most beautiful scenery yet is still within easy reach of Garstang & Lancaster City.

The approach to the property is via shared private driveway that leads to the house's own generous parking area.

The attractive entrance creates an immediate impact welcoming you into a bright and airy foyer which leads you on to discover the rest of the extensive ground floor accommodation.

From here there is access through to three of the principal receptions rooms which include a beautifully proportioned drawing room with panoramic views over the grounds, a snug and formal dining room. The hall also leads through to a second spacious living room, downstairs bedroom, large shower room suite, fitted storage units and has access into the double garage.

At the heart of this house sits the homely country style kitchen. Fitted with quality pine units, sprawling worksurfaces, central island and has a range of integrated appliances. The second reception room can be accessed via the kitchen making it a perfect setup for entertaining.

Following on from the kitchen is a large separate utility room with adjoining laundry room which has access out to the terrace.

The first floor is accessed via a wide staircase that leads you up to a spacious split-level landing. The first three bedrooms are all good proportions, benefiting from fitted closets in one bedroom and, exposed beams in all, each offering unique countryside views. There is also a modern three-piece family bathroom.

The master suite is the most impressive of all, offering an elegant and tranquil space in which to retreat. It features beautiful exposed beams, quality fitted closets and dressing table as well as benefiting from stunning views over the front lawns and meadows beyond. Leading on from here is the en-suite, fitted with a traditionally styled three-piece suite (including double vanity unit), featuring exposed beams and views over to the canal and rear fields.

Externally, the grounds of Jackson Hill House amount to approximately 3.5 acres and include vast sweeping lawns, an attractive terrace that overlooks a large pond and to the rear there are a further two fields and paddock. In addition to this there are two large outbuildings; the first, directly opposite the house, is ideal for garden equipment and wood storage, the second building is within the paddock and previously used as a workshop/garage, large enough to house 3 cars, with water, heating and lighting. Exiting this building from either of 2 garage doors, there is a hard standing parking area adjacent. From the paddock, the property offers access to the Lancaster Canal via a private track.
