Full description

An exquisite conversion of a former coaching house, detached, grade II listed and aesthetically particularly attractive, recently luxuriously upgraded, immaculately and very tastefully presented, retaining a wealth of exposed characteristic features married with extremely high quality contemporary fittings. Including 46' x 18' main living area and kitchen, spacious second lounge and five bedrooms (luxurious master suite & two further bathrooms). Occupying a superb, peaceful semi rural positon with a high level of privacy and pleasant outlooks onto beautiful south facing gardens. Distinctive remote iron gates provide access including parking area with pp for large garage. DECEPTIVE VIEWED FROM REAR - MUST BE VIEWED FROM FRONT.


Believed to date from circa 1750 and built as the coach house for the adjacent, historic Broadclough Hall which dates from 1596 and was owned by the Whittaker family for many years, where both Beatrix Potter and John Wesley are reputed to have been guests, this coach house has been converted to a magnificent residence and subsequently, since 2005 it has been largely refitted incorporating sumptuous, high quality appointments. It boasts a very distinctive and rare rebated frontage with verandah (southerly facing).


The property is located in a superb semi rural position approximately two thirds of a mile north of Bacup town centre, approached from Burnley Road. Proceeding up Burnley Road turn left on the wooded bend, immediately before Woodland Terrace. The Coach House is on you left but please note the view from the lane to its rear is very deceptive; the property must be viewed from the front to properly appreciate its proportions and character.
