No doubt providing a fantastic entertaining area along with al-fresco dining and drinks in the summer. The time of this dictation was 19.15 in late June and the sun is still shining on this unique garden space.

AUTHORS NOTE  
This property has to be seen to be believed. It offers spacious residential living space with further substantial, in effect, commercial areas which subject to planning, could be used to generate an income or provide storage for sole traders or a small business. With secure off-street parking and for me the big bonus is the sun terrace. Very much a unique property and with some flare for interior and exterior design, could be the envy of Barnoldswick. Don’t hesitate to come and have a look, you will not be disappointed.
