Property Description

Full description

Higher Sunnyhurst House is an imposing six bedroom property which stands in an elevated position making the most of the views over Sunnyhurst and beyond. This is a substantial property which even comes with its own two bedroom annexe/granny flat, perfect for those who have older children to give them their own space or maybe elderly relatives or visitors. The annexe is named Higher Sunnyhurst House Cottage, formerly the coach house to Higher Sunnyhurst House, which is linked via a utility room in the main house but has its own front door too, providing the option to have a completely separate dwelling or to incorporate into the main house to create additional accommodation.
The tree lined driveway up to Sunnyhurst House is shared with just one neighbouring property and opens onto a large driveway to the front of the house with a double garage plus a car port to the side provides additional parking. There is lovely garden area to the front and a large courtyard garden to the rear and an outbuilding providing additional storage.
Higher Sunnyhurst House is a most interesting property built circa 1850 for the Lord of the manor, Reverend William Arthur Duckworth. The property was originally built of stone and was pebble dashed in the 1980's and extended to the rear creating this substantial family home.

The Accommodation - Stone steps lead up to the main entrance of the house which opens into the ground floor accommodation comprising of two principle reception rooms to the front with impressive views, downstairs cloakroom, inner hallway with sweeping staircase and feature window to the first floor, morning room (complete with original butlers bells) which is currently used as a study, large dining kitchen, utility room and a rear porch leading out to the front and side of the house. To the first floor there are six bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate shower room. A further staircase leads to the attic room, a large space which is ideal as a playroom/hobby room. There is a cellar room accessed off the inner hallway providing useful storage space.
The annexe has accommodation on two levels with access via the utility room in the main house or via its own separate entrance. There is a lounge, dining room, kitchen, downstairs bathroom, two bedrooms, a dressing room and a second bathroom.

The Location - Sunnyhurst is a highly regarded area on the outskirts of Darwen town centre with lovely country walks on the doorstep including Darwen Tower, weavers Way and Sunnyhurst wood.
Although Higher Sunnyhurst House is situated in a countryside location it is close to all the local amenities of Darwen including the Victorian market hall, local shops, schools and access to a major motorway network with the M65, M6 & M61 just a short drive.
