Description
Tower View is the substantial rear portion [with later extensions] of a lovely mid-Victorian detached villa located in the heart of Pleasington village. We understand that the property was originally built as a country residence for an eminent local family. It then spent time as a Convent before being converted into three separate residences just after the Second World War. It has enviable views over its sizeable garden, towards Hoghton Hill/Towers in the distance. Gas central heating and PVCu double glazing are installed. The property is very individual with a deceptive amount of living space providing for a large hallway, four reception rooms, a spacious kitchen and five bedrooms. There is also a "secret" inner courtyard garden and a substantial garage.

Location
The property is located right in the heart of Pleasington almost equidistant between the two village pubs which are both noted for their ales, fayre and crown bowling greens. The local railway station is within short walking distance. This offers regular services to Blackburn and Preston [West Coast Mainline connections]. Pleasington has a distinctly semi-rural ambiance and is surrounded by scenic local countryside. However within just a few minutes you can access the M65 [2 miles] with links to the M6 and M61. Regional mobility/commuting is a distinct advantage of living here. Other village attractions of note are the fine 18 hole Pleasington Golf Course and the historic Catholic Priory, both of which are within 400 yards.

Directions
Please click on the 'Map' tab on our website display. You are automatically linked to an interactive location plan which centres on the postcode BB2 5JH. The property at the front [left] of the Victorian building is called "Mossfield". Tower View shares the side driveway with Mossfield. You go down the driveway to the end of the building and the entrance, parking area and garaging for Tower View are to the immediate right.

Accommodation
The accommodation is over two floors. Bedroom Five is actually above the garage extension [but for the purposes of the floor plan it is shown as part of the ground floor layout]. This rear wing of garage, with a large bedroom above, could possibly lend itself to become a 'granny/flat' or annexe conversion, which may prove of interest to a family caring for a dependent relative they wish to have close to them, yet still living somewhat independently.

The property is entered through a vestibule area with tiled flooring. It leads into a very generous hallway.
