A rare opportunity to acquire a small scale farm including a character 3-bedroom stone farmhouse, a large traditional attached stone barn and a further range of traditional and more modern former agricultural buildings. The property will be of interest to a variety of purchasers, ranging from agricultural, equestrian, lifestyle and developers. In a much sought-after rural location, yet within easy reach of Bolton-by-Bowland, Grindleton, Clitheroe and the main A59 highway. In total the property extends to 41.59 acres or thereabouts and includes approximately 4.54 acres of woodland, with the remaining 36.71 acres being down to meadow and pasture.

The property offers fantastic potential for a wide range of alternative uses, subject to gaining the necessary planning consents. The traditional buildings provide great potential for residential conversion and the extension of the existing farmhouse, whilst also offering scope for a variety of amenity/equestrian uses.

The property enjoys its own private access directly off Barret Hill Brow and it is a true lifestyle property, being of interest to those who enjoy peaceful surroundings, require additional space or have agricultural, equestrian or diversification interests.

The farmhouse front entrance door leads into the main hallway/dining room, with a central oil-fired Rayburn providing a sense of character. The staircase leads from the hallway to the first floor and an additional doorway leads through into the kitchen. The kitchen includes base and wall mounted units and a window to the rear overlooking the surrounding grassland. Off the kitchen is a further utility room, providing for the original stone worksurfaces and additional storage. The living room includes an open fire with cast iron surround and further front access door; however, this is currently boarded over.

To the first floor are three spacious bedrooms and a family bathroom, with the bathroom including a window to the rear and suite comprising W.C, wash hand basin and shower cubicle.

A spacious stone garage is attached to the South elevation of the property, whilst to the front is a beautiful, well established cottage garden, with a central lawn and surrounding mature flower beds, all benefiting from expansive views over the surrounding valley.

Attached to the side of the farmhouse is a large traditional stone barn under a pitched stone and slate roof, with the building including the original cattle byer, loft and dairy. To the front of this barn is a further stable building, being a double height stone outbuilding under a pitched slate roof, with both buildings offering excellent potential for alternative uses or residential conversion. Attached to the rear of the barn is a 3-bay former shippon constructed of rendered stone and brick under a sheet roof.

Lower Heights Farm is sat in approximately 41.59 acres or thereabouts with 4.54 acres being mature woodland and the remaining land being a mixture of meadow and pasture. The land is classified as Grade 4 on DEFRA’s Land Classification Maps for England and Wales and is made up of a number of different field enclosures positioned within a ring fence around the farmhouse and buildings.

Awaiting EPC.
