In all some one acre

In the same ownership for nearly fifty years, Pendle House is a much loved, rambling family home of significant scope and character, set amidst beautifully designed gardens of approximately one acre. The principal house and adjacent self-contained coach house together provide a substantial and versatile property that offers multiple options to the incoming buyer. This is an ideal property for multiple generations within the same family.

The detached annexe, formerly a workshop, is now a significant property in its own right. It has been renovated, re-roofed and insulated with underfloor heating, vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and large floor-to-ceiling windows. It is part converted to form a self-contained apartment (open plan living space, kitchenette, shower room). If fully developed and with the right consents in place it could make a substantial cottage suitable for residential use, or as a home office/business space.

The principal house and coach house both are both circa 1830s and Grade II listed. Period features abound and include working fires, cornicing and plasterwork, floorboards, deep bays, sash windows, a glorious arched landing window, a staircase with finely-turned spindles and polished handrail, exposed beams and brickwork.

There is a detached, single storey, modern annexe of nearly 2000 sq ft offering many options and with the potential to generate income

The elegant and well proportioned living rooms with wonderful bays that aid natural sunlight include an entrance reception hall and drawing room.

Adjoining the country kitchen is a characterful living room with quarry tile floor, exposed brickwork housing a multi-fuel stove, timber ceiling and glorious windows overlooking the garden.

The traditional conservatory is fully glazed along its 40ft length and eastern aspect, flanking both the principal house and coach house. A staircase leads to an attractive room with three windows overlooking the garden, suitable as an office or gym.

There are two dry cellars and ample storage options throughout the property.

The principal west facing bedroom suite has a dressing room and adjoining bathroom. There are two further double bedrooms both with built-in wardrobes and one with an adjoining bathroom; there is also a single bedroom.

Outside - The house is approached through wrought iron gates onto a gravelled drive with the detached annexe on the left. The gardens surround the house but principally lie on the western flank; there is a long sweep of lawn, colourful and well-stocked herbaceous borders, mature shrubs and trees, meandering paths and gravelled areas as well as a secluded wooded copse and wildlife area with wildlife pond and bridge. The gardens extend to just under one acre, are private, sheltered and well screened with a natural boundary of trees and hedges.
