Ainsworth Lord Estates are truly delighted to be listing this exceptional local historic property in such a lovely location, surrounded by beautiful countryside, in the small village of Belthorn, situated on the southern outskirts of Blackburn.
The story goes...... this is the house that gave the village of Belthorn it's name. Formerly known as the "Bell-i'-'th-Thorn", where the original pit bell was situated in an old thorn bush - hence the name.
This former village pub, now a beautiful home, and has had extensive renovation and mordenisation throughout and has some truly outstanding features. The obvious one being the amazing views of course.. with fantastic views of Blackpool tower and the fylde. And it is lovely! This property has all original and exposed beams throughout. With a beautiful orginal stone fireplace.
So... back to the main house...
Have a good look through our pictures, look at the floor plan, and check our genuine Virtual Tour, they will obviously tell you a lot, but just to be clear..
An incredible landscaped large garden with flagged and raised decked areas perfect for family gatherings, with potential for a vegetable patch and or for any keen gardeners or a hot tub with a summer house thats the scale and potential of this beautiful garden.
The main house is comprised of the following..
Entrance: (2m x 1.6m)
This is the entrance/vestibule room, with carpeted floor and coat hanging facilities.
Entrance Hall (5.25m x 2.4m)
A lovely welcoming hallway that enters the home of the property. The Play Room/Office is on the left, as is the kitchen, with the main lounge to the right. This hallway leads nicely up to the main stairs to the first floor.
Main Lounge (10.5m x 4.5m)
A very generous through lounge, that extends right through from the front of the house to the rear sunroom conservatory that leads out to the side patio (see the wellies next to the door in the picture).
The main feature in this room is of course the outstanding natural original fireplace. As large as it is.. it looks very well in this exceptionally spacious lounge. At the back of the lounge we can access the dining room.
Office/Playroom (4m x.4.2m)
On the left as we come along the entrance hall.
Currently used as an Office, Music Room and sometimes a play room, it is suitable for a variety of uses. Benefiting from built-in storage cupboards.
Kitchen (4m x 3.5m) This spacious Farm-House Styled kitchen matches the style of this property perfectly. Boasting bespoke solid oak fitted units and wearing black galaxy granite worktops, a belfast sink, and range cooker and range of other features, this is the kitchen well equipped to make delicious home cooked meals for friends and family alike...
Dining Room (4m x 3.8m)
Accessed from the kitchen and also the main lounge, the warm-carpeted dining room is perfectly situated to enjoy views over the back countryside whilst dining. Big enough to accommodate friend and or a large family - space in this dining room won't be a problem!
Conservatory: (4m x 3.7m)
Now this is the tranquil room. No matter what the weather.. the views will calm the busiest of minds. As you can see from the pictures, the views are stunning. Believe me when I say it.. the pictures may look good, but they're nowhere near as good as the real thing! Come see for yourself. The Conservatory has a solid roof with central heating perfect all year round.
Main Bathroom (4m x 3m)
The main bathroom is another lovely feature within this character property. It is comprised of a freestanding large beth tub, vanity wash basin, Wc and large walk-in shower.
Master Bedroom (5.5m x 3.7m)
Situated at the back of the property with a window overlooking the wonderful views. This calming bedroom has a feel to it that will relax and rest even the busiest of people. With warm country décor and a cosy carpet underfoot all you will need is a bed to match...
The other 3 bedrooms on this level are at the front of the house, each of them with views looking across over neighbouring farmland. Their sizes are as follows:
Bedroom 2 (3.4m x 2.9m)
Bedroom 3 (3m x 5.3m)
Bedroom 4 (5.25m x 3.5m)
On the Second Floor of this property...
We have the attic rooms... one of them (the middle room - seen clearly on the floorplans) is actually used as a double guest bedroom. (to be officially classed as a bedroom it will need a window. The easiest solution for this would be to have a Velux roof window fitted.)
As you can see on the floor plan, as well as the store room, there are two other rooms in the attic - one either side of the main middle room. Both these rooms have potential to be double sized bedrooms. As you can see from the pictures these rooms just require minor improvements, they already have windows, but for good measure if we were advising we would suggest Velux windows are fitted in both these rooms too.
Here is a breakdown of the rooms in question:
Main Attic Room (Currently used as a Bedroom) Bedroom 5 (7m x 5m)
Second Attic Room (on left) (8m 3.3m)
Third Attic Room (on right) (5.8m x 3.3m)
Attic Store Room: (3.3m x 2.25m)
BASEMENT It measures 60sq metres. So as you can imagine, it's a rather large basement. It can be accessed from the gound floor of the main house (behind the kitchen and dining room), or from one of the rear patios at the back of the house.
This amount of space is very useful and as you can see from the pictures it has been put to good use by the current owners. Basically it made up of 3 really good sized rooms.. The layout of the basement can can be clearly seen on the floorplan.
The room at the back of the house is currently used as a utility room and this works really well as there is a door that leads out from here onto one of the rear patios.
This basement is the perfectworkshop! and would be useful for a vareity of uses.
The room measurements are:
Room 1 (4.25m x 4m)
Room 2 (4m x 3.3m)
Room 3 - currently used as a utility room etc.. (4.2m x 4m)
DOUBLE GARAGE The Double Garage, with two separate up and over doors, is attached to the side of the house and has parking in front of it and also to the side that will comfortably accommodate 6-8 family cars.
The garage has been well constructed, with a level concrete floor and all appears to be in excellent condition, the pitched roof adds valuable additional storage space, the bonus with this garage is the Inspection Pit that is constructed into the floor.
