This charming period property offers a myriad of options and elements for prospective purchasers, including 10 acres of meadows and woodland with the option to buy more potentially, a high-grade self-contained annexe, extensive outbuildings and a spacious footprint of characterful accommodation with a further option for a self-contained wing/annexe within the main building.

There is also planning permission for an extension should purchasers wish to add any more to the current accommodation. The owners have added a lot to this property during their tenure, including the recent conversion of the garage to ancillary accommodation and expending a lot of time and energy in maintaining the grounds and overhauling the wonderful tennis court.

Gibbons Well Barn benefits from two gated entry points from the lane, both of which provide vehicular access to the grounds. The primary driveway has a wooden five bar gate leading onto a sweeping block paved driveway which can cater for multiple vehicles.

Beyond here is an area of hardstanding and another gate which leads down to the array of outbuildings.

Bedroom four/office
At the end of the garden room is an extensive room with a vaulted ceiling which can be used as part of the annexe arrangement and is also ideal for use as a games room or large office. The vaulted ceiling displays a wonderful array of beams and this is complemented by some lovely, exposed brickwork featured in this room along with a Clearview wood burner which sits on a granite plinth.

Annexe
Adjacent to the main property is a truly exceptional detached annexe which has been recently converted by the current owners with no expense spared. This two-storey ancillary dwelling is ideal for dependent relatives and has great earning potential too as a let.

This building has a separate boiler and features hard-wired smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

Bedroom

Gardens and grounds
Gibbons Well Barn benefits the most wonderful grounds which offer something for everybody, ranging from beautifully tended formal gardens to meadows in addition to areas of orchard and diverse woodland.

The meadows offer excellent potential for those with horses and animals, especially as there could be the option to purchase an additional six acres of grazing land subject to separate negotiation.

The formal gardens directly border the rear of the main residence and start with a fantastic, sheltered courtyard which leads to an extensive wraparound paved and block-paved terrace.

Together these areas are great for entertaining and al fresco dining and come complete with nicely planted borders and a superb gazebo.

Beyond the patio are well-tended lawns with a good range of specimen trees and a fantastic two-tier pond with reeds, water lilies and connected by a waterfall.

Several gates from the gardens lead on to a maturing orchard, a secret garden packed with flowering perennials and a neatly tended vegetable patch nicely tucked away and featuring raised beds and a greenhouse.

Next to the lawns is a fully enclosed tennis court which has been recently refurbished and ready to be played.

Beyond the tennis court is a sweeping grassed area which leads down to the aforementioned outbuildings and a further vegetable patch. From here can be found two wooded areas planted in conjunction with the Woodland Trust and populated by an excellent variety of maturing young trees.

These are divided by grassed walkways which lead onto the meadows and in a lovely leafy glade hidden away is a delightful wooden summerhouse, an excellent place to sit and drink in the tranquil surroundings.

The meadows which make up the rest of the plot sit nicely towards the rear of the grounds and directly border the Wyre Forest which provides a leafy natural border. The meadows are great for those who love nature, featuring a wide variety of wildflowers and grasses, and also lend themselves to equestrian purposes and other animal husbandry.

These areas are enclosed by low-level fencing and benefit from a gate which leads directly into the nature reserve.

The extensive section of larch-clad outbuildings is conveniently located beyond the tennis court and comprises four sections, offering excellent square footage for storage and multiple vehicles. The first section is ideal as an expansive workshop, a breeze block framed building with a concrete floor featuring power, lighting and a wood-burning stove.

Next door is a double garage accessed via an electric roller shutter door and again with power and light. Beyond that is an open double-width carport/barn with a concrete base which leads on to the last section, a closed barn benefiting from floor-to-ceiling shelving.

The additional acreage which can be purchased via separate negotiation totals just over six acres and is located directly opposite the property on the other side of Button Bridge Lane. This extra land is mostly paddock / arable land and will be extremely desirable for those with horses and other animals.

The property has mains electricity and water, LPG gas, two septic tanks, one for the main residence and one for the annexe, CCTV, and fibre broadband.
