Floorplans For Long Hill End, Cowling





With origins dating back in excess of 250 years, this thoughtfully designed property is the flagship of a bespoke conversion of 4 dissimilar houses, with the developer himself being the owner of Foxgloves, a versatile 3/4 Bedroomed family home containing a lovely blend of period features & modern day comforts.  

The attention to detail is second to none with an aura of quality throughout and whilst the beautifully presented home is ‘turn key’, it also offers considerable further potential above the adjoining Treble Garage, currently providing excellent storage space but with planning passed to provide ancillary accommodation (including 2 further Bedrooms, a Bathroom and a Living Room).  Permission has also been granted for a Garden Room extension off the ground floor Study (App no: ZA23/25306/HH).

The property stands in a delightful location on the Yorkshire/Lancashire border backing directly onto open fields but within only a couple of minutes drive of the well respected village of Cowling; ideally suited to those seeking the true pleasures of semi-rural living but also practically located for those who commute to work, having excellent links to Manchester via the M65, with Leeds also within less than an hour’s drive.

The grounds of Foxgloves extend to approximately an acre including a sweeping driveway, parking for several vehicles, a large lawn and space to the rear to provide a fantastic garden on overlooking fields on the west side.  Also included is a large established orchard of trees (circa 0.6 acres), which will no doubt be of appeal to a young family whilst also having potential for hobby or recreational use.
