Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Built in 1951 for Sir Cuthbert and Lady Clegg, the owners of Shore Mill, and substantially and stylishly extended by the current owners, Higher Shore House must be one of the finest country houses in the Littleborough and surrounding area. There are five spacious reception rooms and four double bedrooms (including a master suite with dressing room and bathroom), and all rooms enjoy open views, with the principal ones at the rear of the house having simply stunning, uninterrupted ones over the landscaped garden and open countryside.

Although in a superb private location, the property is easily accessed and is situated within a few minutes drive of the ever popular Littleborough village centre and railway station, providing a relatively easy commute to Manchester and West Yorkshire. In addition to the entrance courtyard which provides for extensive car parking, there is a double garage with three phase electricity, superb stone patio and large private garden, plus a paddock - all of which sit on a site of approaching two acres.

Viewing of this property, which is strictly by appointment, is a must.
