Set in around 4.5 acres, this stunningly attractive, Grade II listed, detached home is steeped in history and charm yet has been sensitively upgraded to meet the standards of modern living. The residence dates back to the 17th century and was originally built as a servants’ quarters to the former Royle Hall. The impressive setting of beautiful, spacious gardens and grounds are what makes this a welcoming home from the moment you arrive. The well laid-out living space makes it ideal for entertaining, carrying on with the welcoming feel. A wealth of character features has been retained such as exposed beams and stonework along with vaulted ceilings. The property is a perfect rural retreat yet conveniently positioned for amenities and the M65 motorway network.

The front door opens into an impressive dining hall which is a lovely light room with Georgian sliding sash windows overlooking the highly attractive gardens. A wood-burning stove is set in a stone surround providing a lovely focal point to the room. Oak doors lead to the orangery which has part glazed french doors enabling the enjoyment of the gardens. There is a Lakeland Slate solid floor with underfloor heating and a wood-burning stove set in a stone Inglenook fireplace ensuring that the traditional theme continues throughout.

The kitchen includes a range of wall and base-mounted kitchen units with polished granite worksurfaces, an electric Aga and a point for an American fridge freezer. There is a central island incorporating a breakfast bar and hob. An integrated dishwasher is included and the room benefits from underfloor heating.

The living room is another spacious and airy room with shuttered sliding sash windows looking on to the gardens. There is underfloor heating along with a wood-burning stove set in a stone fireplace. A study is found off the living room and is a lovely bright room with sliding sash windows to three elevations and views of Pendle Hill. The ground floor bedroom is spacious and enjoys a superb vaulted ceiling with an impressive en-suite which incorporates a WC, walk-in shower, heated towel rail and a wash handbasin set in units. There are stone steps up to a galleried area and first floor bedrooms.

To the first floor there are two large bedrooms with vaulted ceilings with plenty of scope for alteration to optimise bedroom space to suit a buyer (subject to gaining any necessary consents). A ‘Jack and Jill’ style family bathroom has a free-standing, double-ended bath, a wash hand basin set in a marble unit and a separate shower. The master bedroom has a walk-in dressing room currently being used as a nursery by the vendor. There is planning permission to modify the layout upstairs to create an en-suite and additional bedroom. Further details are available from the agents’ offices.

The property is approached through automated wrought iron gates set within impressive stone pillars. There is plenty of parking available, along with garaging, some timber stables and a stone built log store. The gardens are truly impressive and include some superb flowerbeds, box hedging, raised vegetable beds, large areas of lawn and a paddock beyond. There is a mature bluebell woodland which is protected, and paths down to the River Calder. An idyllic setting for a fantastic family home. In all, the property is set in 4.5 acres (1.8 ha) or thereabouts.
