Four floors of perfection: towering seafront mansion with a gym and cinema yours for £1.5m
All homes have unique features, little diamond selling-points which really make them pop. Some have nice gardens, others are modern but compact 21st century flats. Some are huge and spacious, while others are cosy and rustic. To each their own. But every now and again, one house has it all, and this four-storey St. Annes super-mansion is just one of them.
The four-storey property has over 30 rooms including a self-contained one bedroom first floor flat.
A gated castle of a home, this property is defined by its class and distinction. From the hard-wood flooring and the cinema on the ground floor through to the spacious sitting areas and airy kitchen and garden room on the first floor, this house does everything at 100%. There's even two more floors to explore after the first, with huge bedrooms and en suites awaiting on the remaining couple of storeys.
If Benedict Cumberbatch was a house, he'd look like this.
As well as an impressive centre 'split' oak staircase, the reception gets straight down to business, leading through to the gym on the left and the cinema on the right...
The open-plan kitchen has underfloor heating, Corian worktops, and a breakfast bar as well as all the appliances you could dream of.
With halogen down-lighters and speaker system, this sitting room is about as cosy as they come.
With the bay window overlooking the courtyard entrance, good luck concentrating in this home office...
The home's expansive garden is in full view from the first-floor garden room, which leads out to the home's lawn via French windows. There's also under-floor heating for when the temperatures are lower than ideal.
The home's main lounge has limed wood flooring, a corniced ceiling, and a speaker system as well as a glass-fronted 'hole in wall' log-burning fire for those long evenings in.
Everyone's dream home feature: a cinema. This one has a ceiling Epson projector, halogen ceiling down-lighters, and surround sound speakers. Just bring popcorn.
Views across the estuary? Check. LED down-lighting? Check. Speaker system? Check. His-and-her dressing room with purpose-built units? Check. Dream bedroom.
Like a spa in your own home, this en suite has a walk-through wet shower and a panelled bath with feature taps set in a bay window alcove. Oh, and there's also LED mood lighting in the ceiling.
No excuse with this beauty at home.
Four floors of stairs can be hard. Take a break on the balcony terrace.
Views over the Ribble estuary can be enjoyed from the balustraded and walled garden whilst sipping a drink on the flagged and stone-chipped extensive sun terrace patio. There's also shrubbery borders around the lawn and access to the public coastal footpath beyond for exploring.
