Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Rose Cottage is a late Victorian detached property built of attractive locally made hand-fired brick, with stone dressings and under a blue slate roof. It was constructed to be a lodge/gate house on the boundary of the Woodfold Park Country Estate. It has now been in private ownership for many years. It occupies a particularly wide plot with obvious potential for enlargement and development, as can be seen with other past and current projects along this prestigious semi rural road leading out to Pleasington. From the property you enjoy open views, accross Woodfold Park to Mellor Village and Longridge Fells in the distance. Rose Cottage and its plot offer tremendous potential for development [subject to any necessary consents and regulations]

Billinge End Road connects West Blackburn with Pleasington village. Rose Cottage is the first property on your right as you cross the Pleasington parish boundary, just after Woodgates Road. You are approximately 0.5 miles from Billinge End traffic lights and 2 miles from the centre of Pleasington Village [golf club]. The West of Blackburn is particularly convenient. A choice of motorways can be reached within 15 minutes [M65,M6 & M61], several schools are in the immediate area [including Westholme & Tauheedul] and there is open green space all around [Woodfold Park, Billinge Woods and Witton Country Park]
