** FOR SALE BY INFORMAL TENDER, OFFERS BY 11/7/2017 12:00 NOON, GUIDE PRICE OFFERS OVER £295,000 **
Small holding previously used as kennel business comprising 4 bedroom detached farm house , former kennel building and outhouses set in approximately 3.8 acres.
The property itself is poor condition throughout and requires substantial renovation or indeed demolition and re-building.The accommodation to the existing farmhouse comprises entrance hallway which has a door off to the left accessing a generous sized Dining Kitchen. Also off the hallway is a Shower Room complete with three piece suite. Off to the right there is a Lounge with dual aspect windows to both the front and side and a Dining Room Area with double glazed bow window to the front and open tread staircase off to the first floor.
To the first floor there are Four Bedrooms and Family Bathroom with three piece suite.
Externally, to the front of the property can be found a concrete pathway providing access to the side concrete driveway and beyond this can be found former shrub borders now somewhat overgrown with ornamental trees, shrubs and plants.
To the front of the property can be found the remains of a former bore hole water supply which leads to a covered reservoir type tank.
To the other side of the house can be found a former garden area, now wooded and overgrown. Leading from the side driveway can be found a large LPG gas tank and an oil tank. Adjacent to the oil tank can be found a dog run complete with concrete flooring. Directly to the rear of the house there is a timber structure adjoining to the house utilised for housing the filtration systems for a secondary bore hole located within the wooded area next to the Calor gas tank.
Also located to the rear of the property are various timber poultry buildings, aluminium greenhouse and a former kennel building split into two kennel areas with feed area and store room off.
To the side of the property there is a grassland paddock which extends to approximately 3.8 acres and has separate gated access directly onto Eyes Lane.
Occupying a beautiful and private setting yet only seconds away from the county’s major road network, Red Bridge farm is tucked away yet highly accessible.
Whilst in need of full overhaul, the property and grounds would offer an exciting opportunity for someone wanted to create a fabulous family home within a semi-rural setting yet within easy reach of local services, good schools and a myriad of footpaths, bridleways and quiet country lanes for walking, running and cycling.

The current owners have sought pre-planning application advice from the local council with regards to the demolition and possible re-siting further back in the plot and extracts from a letter received 27/04/17 from Chorley Council (copy held on our files) state:
‘in respect of a proposal to replace the existing dwelling with a new one, set back further from the highway and replace the existing kennels with a new garage and stable building …….. providing the proposed replacement dwelling and the new garage are located within the curtilage of the existing dwelling and the combined volume of these is no greater than 30% over and above the volume of the existing dwelling, this element of the proposal would be acceptable. With regards to the replacement of the kennels with a new building, it is unlikely that this brownfield development would have a greater impact on the openness of the Green Belt as it appears to occupy a smaller footprint than the existing building, this element would also therefore not be inappropriate’.
Please be aware that this advice could be subject to change and we would advise that any interested parties contact the local planning department t seek further clarity on the current planning policy system.
