ROCKCLIFFE HOUSE, ICONIC LANDMARK PROPERTY - AS SEEN ON CHANNEL 4's 'MILLION POUND PROPERTIES' - An outstanding opportunity to purchase one of East Lancashire's most prestigious homes! Uniquely luxurious, period features & incredible architecture. A spectacular contemporary residence with leisure suite & fabulous accommodation, just 20 miles from city centre Manchester - VIEWING STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT ONLY THROUGH FARROW & FARROW

Rockcliffe House is a unique and exceptional, bespoke contemporary mansion. Constructed in 1891 by Smith & Cross of Rochdale, for the original owner J. H. Maden, Rockcliffe House has the unique provenance of a Grade II Listed grand residence of note. Set in approximately 2 ½ acres of mature grounds, this incredible property is approached via a tree-lined lane through an imposing pillared gateway and showcases retained beautiful period features.

Stunning neo-classical architectural aspects include a magnificent entrance way with columned stone porch, mullioned bay windows and fabulous balustrade parapet. Throughout, this extraordinary structure conveys a rich sense of beauty, wealth and quality.

Externally, providing a setting that is both tranquil and secure, landscaped grounds surround the property and offer excellent valley views to the south from an elevated position within a plot amounting to approximately 2 ½ acres.

Situated approximately 20 miles, or just 40 minutes by car from city centre Manchester, Rockcliffe House is ideally located to take advantage of beautiful open countryside which is just minutes away, in addition to the property's own grounds, while convenient and flexible commuter connections are close at hand too. Similarly accessible, are other regional centres of commerce, including Preston and Blackburn, while even Leeds is within commutable reach.

Rossendale boasts a range of amenities, while the town centre offers a range of quality shops suitable for most day to day requirements and the area is also home to good local schools for children of all ages, including Bacup & Rawtenstall Grammar School. The proximity of outstanding open moorland, with reservoir and hillside walks, adrenaline mountain bike centre, dry ski slope and vistas which range as far as Manchester city centre and beyond to Jodrell bank on a fine day, all help to cement Rossendale's position as an up and coming area, with already so much to offer in its own right too.
