Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Priory Croft is a particularly spacious mature detached bungalow occupying a generous plot, with unspoilt farmland views to both the front and rear. Properties in such a lovely location generally only come to market once every generation. Admittedly the property is in need of a 're-fresh' but its potential is superb, including possible development, primarily due to the substantial nature of its garden curtilage/plot. It is really well proportioned throughout with a generous central hallway, a large lounge, a separate dining room, a big dayroom/kitchen, a study, an office, three double bedrooms and two bathrooms. Gas central heating is installed and the property is double glazed throughout in PVCu framework

Old Hall Lane is essentially a 'residents only' country lane [no access to through traffic]. It leads between the Priory and historic Pleasington Old Hall. Priory Croft has views to the early 19th century Priory from the lounge and kitchen windows. The property is within walking distance of Pleasington Railway station [connections to Preston for the West Coast main line], Pleasington golf course [widely recognised as one of the finest links in the North of England] and the two village pubs [The Butlers Arms and the Railway Hotel] which both serve proper beer and traditional fayre. Pleasington is convenient for Blackburn and Preston and the proximity of the M65, M61 and M6 Motorways provides commuting opportunities across the region [Manchester, Liverpool, airports etc].

Perhaps the main attraction of Priory Croft is its location and the generosity of its plot. There could be certain potential for property development but the property is being sold "as is" and as a fine example of a 1920's character property. It has design features typical of that era.

There is plenty of owner/visitor parking space and a detached garage with light/power and an electronic up/over door. The curtilage is mainly set to lawn and has stock-fenced boundaries with the adjoining farmland. The southerly views from the rear of the property are enviable. There is also un-spoilt farmland across Old Hall Lane itself.
