A SUBSTANTIAL 4 BEDROOMED FARMHOUSE CONVERSION STANDING WITHIN GENEROUS GROUNDS INCLUDING A DETACHED GARAGE WITH PLANNING CONSENT FOR DEVELOPMENT
Occupying a choice plot at the head of farmstead converted by Messrs R N Wooler & Co approximately 15 years ago, this highly individual period property exudes charm & character throughout and whilst it has been the subject of on-going improvement by the current owner, it also offers considerable further potential in the house itself and a detached garage which has recently been passed for development.
The accommodation of the house covers in excess of 2000 square feet briefly including a Utility & Cloakroom, 3 Reception Rooms and a good sized Kitchen (the Dining Room & Kitchen would make a superb open plan Living Kitchen with doors to the garden on the south side), also having 4 Double Bedrooms and a 4 piece Bathroom (with an En-Suite Shower Room and “his & hers” walk-in wardrobes to the Master Bedroom).
The adjacent garage has planning permission to be converted into a 3 bedroomed two storey dwelling (circa 950 sq ft) with a beautiful backdrop directly onto open fields, having the potential to be used for a variety of purposes or simply to be retained as a garage. The generous south facing grounds of the house provide excellent parking and could also accommodate a new garage if the current one is developed (subject to planning).
Lothersdale is an extremely popular semi-rural community surrounded by open fields & countryside and known for having lovely woodland walks (including sections of the Pennine Way), the revitalised Hare & Hounds village pub and a highly acclaimed primary school which continues to excel in Ofsted reports.
