Description

Approached by a private drive, Duckworth House Farm sits in approximately 5.5 acres of grassland, along with a yard area and five outbuildings, with Bank Head Brook flowing alongside. This four bedroom farmhouse has been occupied for around 22 years by the same family who have enjoyed countryside living over this period. It is now in need of modernisation throughout. In brief the property consists of a kitchen to the rear with log burning stove, a downstairs shower room with WC and basin, and a spacious living room to the front of the property with an open fire. To the first floor there are four double bedrooms and a large family bathroom. To the front elevation of the property is a garden area with vegetable plot.

There is potential to demolish and rebuild the farmhouse to the purchasers specification and subject to relevant planning. The outbuildings consist of;

1. A workshop/garage with space over two floors and two sets of roller shutter doors on the northern elevation making this building easily accessible.

2. A timber pole barn and lean – to – open fronted timber constructed barn, provides ample storage for hay and machinery. There is a lean to on the westerly elevation providing extra storage and potential to convert this building into an open fronted stable block or lambing shed, subject to gaining necessary planning permission.

3. A red brick building currently used as kennels.

4. A traditional single storey barn located to the easterly side of the smallholding. This building benefits from Class Q Planning Permission, which was granted on 7/11/2017 (change of use of agricultural building into residential dwelling, Class C3). In brief this building has planning permission to be converted into a one-bedroom property, with a kitchen, living room and bathroom. This would make fantastic accommodation for elderly family members, teenagers or a holiday let, subject to necessary consent. More information is available on this conversion from the South Ribble Borough Council website, planning reference number: 07/2017/2892/APD.

5. A red brick barn which is located to the rear of the small holding. This barn has previously been used for agricultural activities, now requiring some attention.
