So much potential...Built in 1919, this substantial Whalley based property is thought to be part of a former mill owner's house and offers 2800 sq ft of internal accommodation. The family have lived in the property for some 70 years. This handsome property boasts a multitude of original features and is set in a large plot which itself has further potential with south facing gardens.

Internally this fantastic home has a wealth of character features and includes: high ceilings, large bay leaded windows, stone mullions and attractive fireplaces. A potential buyer is presented with scope to alter and modernise to truly make this property their own and add their own taste.

The front door opens into an unassuming vestibule with WC and utility off, and then opens up into the spacious entrance hall. This area of the property has scope to be altered depending on how you might like to enter the property. It benefits from built in storage and has a period staircase which rises to the first floor.
The kitchen includes a range of wall and base mounted kitchen units with a work surface over, a double sink and drainer, point for a dishwasher, hob with an extractor over and a double oven. There is also an integrated fridge freezer. The kitchen opens out into the morning room, both the kitchen and morning room enjoy views out over the gardens.

An impressive reception room, the dining room has windows to two elevations providing plenty of light. There is an attractive copper fireplace providing a fantastic focal point to this room. The lounge has a large bay window overlooking the side garden and also benefits from a fireplace providing another lovely feature to the room. Both the dining room and lounge offer delightful views over the gardens, giving a really private feel to the property.

The staircase rises up to the first floor where there are four bedrooms in total, each enjoying views over the gardens and grounds. The bathroom includes original tiled walls, which have been preserved by the current vendors. There is also a spacious shower room.

The road into the property is owned with Acrefield, this sweeps round an area of mature woodland which is included.  The understated entrance is through a delightful courtyard and houses a coal house and has the access to a cellar. The property is set in highly attractive, beautifully stocked gardens and grounds, which are well maintained. There are a range of mature shrubs and flowerbeds along with expanses of lawn and mature trees.

Beyond the immediate garden, there is a secret garden which is found at the bottom of the plot. There is a single garage off the drive at the front of the property.

The woodland area at the front of the property is also included.  This woodland is attractive and has a stream running through it.  There are tree preservation orders in place.

We understand that there is a right of access around the side of the adjacent property, which gives access from the driveway through to the rear gardens and grounds.

The property is nestled with a cluster of residential properties just off Wiswell Lane. Ideally located for walking into the lovely and sought-after Ribble Valley village of Whalley.

Whalley is a charming village set on the edge of the River Calder and is filled with historic buildings and a good range of independent boutiques, shops, cafés, and restaurants. An ideal location for those who love the Ribble Valley, well located for accessing the great outdoors but without being too rural. There are several sought after schools in the area such as Oak Hill College and Whalley Meadows Forest School, both of which have their own Private Day Nurseries. There is also a railway station in Whalley with direct trains to Manchester.
