Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A charming five bedroom residence set in 3 acres of gardens, full of character features with a wealth of natural stonework complimented with exposed oak timbers in a private elevated setting in the Forest of Bowland Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a southerly aspect and extensive views of the unspoilt Ribble Valley countryside to the south and heather moors to the west. The property is freehold with vacant possession and includes landscaped gardens with a useful range of outbuildings and stables. Easy access for M6 & M65 motorway network. The area is renowned for good schools such as Stoneyhurst College, Oakhill College and local primary/secondary education.

Lennox Farm is believed to have been constructed in the early nineteenth century and was carefully restored by the present owners over the last 33 years. Set in 3 acres, half of the additional land is green pasture. A spring fed stream provides natural water to the pastures and runs through the garden areas serving two ponds providing an attractive water feature. There are landscaped gardens to the front of the house and gated access across a shallow ford to the woodland, paddock and pasture. There are wild gardens, an allotment and small greenhouse all within private surroundings. The pastureland is ideal for horses/ponies or could be let out for sheep grazing, providing additional income, as at present.
