Description

One of the finest houses in the Rossendale Valley, Moorfields is a comfortable and impressive home. Stone built and extending to
nearly 6,500 sq ft overall the property provides four very indulgent and spacious bedrooms, two of which have dressing rooms and en suite bathrooms. As well suited to family use as entertaining on a grand scale, there is a wonderful panelled reception hall leading through to the two principal reception rooms, both of which overlook the gardens and the hills to the west.

The drawing room opens into a large conservatory with magnificent stone columns and terrific views down the valley. The dining room also opens off the hall and features a magnificent stone fireplace, a crockery store and a service door to the well-appointed breakfast kitchen. A utility room opens off the kitchen and there is a door through to the study, which, with an adjoining bathroom, provides the option of a fifth bedroom or staff room. The rear entrance hall is also rather impressive and is the main entry from the garaging area.

With external access there is a large workshop, a wine cellar and a garden w.c. separated from the garaging and a store by an impressive stone archway and a door through to the gardens. The large double garage has a covered car wash area to the front, an adjoining tool shed and a store room.

The gardens are attractively landscaped and include a raised terrace on the west side ideal for summer evenings. Extending to about 1.5 acres the extensive lawns extend to the south and west in the main rising up to a woodland area forming an attractive back drop. The driveway is gated and splits to lead to both the formal main entrance and the garaging and family parking/turning area. The workshop, stores and tool shed are useful ancillary rooms along with a cellar boiler room and a wine store.

Our clients are offering a further 19.5 acres of land, available by
separate negotiation, providing for grazing or equestrian use and this land extends to the west and south of the gardens, leading down to a brook and includes further woodland areas.

Square Footage: 6,450 sq ft
