** THE PERFECT PROPERTY FOR CAR ENTHUSIASTS **
One of the area's finest country homes, offering up to six bedroom accommodation (including a detached annexe), in a wonderful location and with stunning far reaching views. This is set amidst grounds of 14.56 Ha (C. 36 acres), benefiting from a long driveway approach and well positioned for the East Lancashire and Yorkshire commuter.
The sale of Bank End Farm offers an exciting and rare opportunity to acquire a versatile and impressive family home, offering a good degree of flexibility with the advantage of a detached annexe too. Approached by a long sweeping driveway the property stands amidst 36 acres of land, to include 8 acres of woodland and extends to around 6190 sq.ft including the garage and annex.
The accommodation to the ground floor comprises a front entrance porch, a dining room, a drawing room with a picture window providing stunning long distance views, a newly fitted bespoke dining kitchen, two good sized double bedrooms and a shower room. The lower ground floor has potential to be used as another annexe as it has a study/bedroom, a sitting room, a shower room and a utility room. The layout of the lower ground floor is very flexible and could be changed to fit a buyer's needs. To the first floor is the master suite which includes a substantial bedroom with a walk in dressing room, a luxury ensuite and a further bedroom that is currently used as a dressing room. Next to the house is a separate annexe which has a kitchen to the ground floor and a cinema room to the first floor, again this offers flexible living accommodation as the cinema room could be used as a bedroom.
Bank End Farm is approached by a sweeping tree lined driveway which passes through remote control gates. Within the grounds there is parking for up to 8 vehicles within a pair of four car garages, which could lend themselves to the creation of a home gym or leisure suite - subject to any consents. In addition there are fuel stores as well as a home office. The gardens to the front and side are meticulously maintained and provide a tranquil space to sit out, whilst beyond there is grassland and woodland, the whole property extending to 14.56 Ha (36 acres).
Roughlee stands on the eastern flanks of Pendle Hill, in a desirable rural location and yet is only 3.5 miles from Junction 13 of the M65 with its links to Burnley, Manchester and the M6. The traditional Yorkshire market town Skipton is 17 miles distant and has excellent road links with Harrogate, Leeds and Bradford - as well as frequent rail links with both of the preceding cities. Local amenities are available within Barrowford whilst the region boasts a number of vibrant towns, sporting, cultural amenities and private schooling for children of all age groups including Giggleswick and Stonyhurst.
Before entering the village of Blacko from the Gisburn direction on Gisburn Road you will see two right turns. Take the second right onto Blacko Bar Road and continue along for 400 yards. You will then see a cattle grid on your right hand side. Go over the cattle grid and continue along the track to the property.
