FOR SALE BY MODERN METHOD OF AUCTION. STARTING BID £700,000 PLUS RESERVATION FEES
Have you ever dreamed of creating your forever home in one of Lancashire's most spectacular settings?
A rare an exciting opportunity has arisen to secure a property absolutely beaming with potential with huge scope to renovate and restore.
Highcroft sits on an enviable and equally impressive plot of just over half an acre and enjoys some of the best views money can buy. Elegantly framed by mature trees and bedding, the privacy on offer is completely unrivalled. Backing on to local farmland and with far-reaching Ribble Valley views to the front, this is surely one of the best spots in Lancashire. Painterwood is a quiet and charming hamlet 3-4 minutes walk into the ever popular village of Whalley where you'll find an abundance of amenities such as shops, village stores, supermarkets plus a wide choice of places to eat and drink.
The property, which was initially bought as a three bedroom house has gone under significant changes recently. A substantial double storey extension has been built to the side which needs completion to bring the house up to its fullest potential.
The extension to the side was due to be a double garage on ground floor with either three bedrooms to the first floor or two bedrooms, one of which incorporating an en-suite and dressing room. On the top floor there would be another large bedroom with an en-suite or two smaller bedrooms with amazing views. This would have then been connected to the main house via an inner hallway. The current house has a large bedroom to the ground floor which used to be the garage, there are two more bedrooms on the first floor, one of which has plumbing in place to accommodate an en-suite bathroom. The split-level style property offers a sensational open plan living and proposed kitchen area to the first floor with a front row seat of some stunning views to the front aspect. In addition there's a conservatory to the rear with another substantial reception room to the side with dual aspect.
We understand that planning permission has recently been applied for another detached dwelling to be built in the far corner of the garden. This has not yet been passed, the planning application can be viewed on the Ribble Valley Council website by quoting the reference number: 3/2023/0152.
Highcroft is a rare and exciting opportunity for someone open minded who has a particular desire to build or create their own forever home. There is significant work to still undertake but the potential on offer is immense. Please take time in reading the auction terms and contact the office to arrange your viewing.
In brief, the accommodation comprises of; entrance hallway with doors leading to a large bedroom which used to be the garage. On the other side of the hallway there's access to a substantial storage room with an adjacent WC, stairs lead to the first floor. On the first floor there's a large reception room with a sliding door leading to the balcony enjoying some incredible views. This has an open plan theme leading into a proposed kitchen (not fitted) with a conservatory to the rear. Furthermore there's another reception room at the far end of the property which has a dual aspect and is full of light. At the opposite side of the property you'll find two rooms that are proposed bedrooms with access to a family bathroom. There is currently no access from the main house to the extension, we understand that the original plans had a door from the first floor hallway leading to this.
