Ainsworth Lord Estates are thrilled to market for sale this lovely 2/3 bedroom cottage situated in a private location beyond a private gated driveway.
This is a very attractive detached period property over 200 years of age sitting in a very generous plot of approximately 0.35 acres with electronic gate access and visitor intercom.
Full Planning Permission had already been granted to extend the current dwelling and create an extra dwelling. The potential to revise the planning consent (now lapsed) would be a simple process.
Details of the past Planning Permission can be seen online via the Blackburn with Darwen BC planning portal. (Original Ref 10/06/1356, Renewal Ref 10/10/0214 & Extended Ref until March 2017 is 10/13/0319). Since this planning consent was granted permission has been given to remove three large sycamore trees from the garden, which extends the development potential.
The property currently offers unique accommodation with all the original features you would expect within a period cottage, such as beamed ceilings. The current owner has updated the property in certain areas including gas central heating [recently fitted Worcester combi-system], kitchen, second bathroom and double glazing.
The accommodation provides a front porch with stone bench seating, a charming lounge with a stone mini-inglenook fireplace, a downstairs guest bedroom along with a downstairs bathroom/WC, a really spacious dining kitchen and a traditional larder room.
