This is a stunning property in an amazing setting, with the main house being about 4,000 sq ft, with an additional 3,500 sq ft Coach House.
It was built in 1860 for the Parke family, who owned the paper mill at Withnell Fold.
Further rooms were added in the 1930s and again in the 1950s.
It is situated in one of the mostsought-after locations right in the heart of the highly desirable semi-rural village of Withnell Fold.
This idyllic conservation area is just minutes from the M61, M6 and M65 – although you’ll never guess it once you are home.
Withnell Fold Primary School has an excellent reputation, and the village, set on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, has woodland walks, public gardens, nature reserve with wild deer, a sports club with tennis courts, bowling green, cricket, football pitch and fishing ponds.
The property itself has bags of charm, character and most of all space.
The downstairs living accommodation comprises an entrance reception hallway, lounge, dining room, extremely spacious kitchen/breakfast room, utility room with spacious storage room, study/office, conservatory, garden room and shower room/WC with bootroom.
To the first floor is a fabulous master bedroom suite, a second bedroom with en-suite shower room, and a further double bedroom.
There are two more double bedrooms with en-suite, currently used as a guest bedroom suite.
The stone-built Coach House building that comes with the main house comprises 10 rooms.
They are currently garages and storage sheds but could be turned into any number of potential purposes (contact Reeds Rains for further details).
Externally the property is set centrally on a good-sized plot with gardens to the front, side and rear.
There is an entrance driveway with large wooden gates providing off-road parking.
To the side and rear, there are stunning well-established laid-to-lawn gardens overlooking beautiful local countryside, the reservoir and Withnell Fold nature reserve.
Internal inspection highly recommended to fully appreciate this superior property and its convenient, desirable location.
