Double-fronted Grade 2 listed house, mainly Georgian with a heritage back to the early C17th, as well as a Victorian extension. The house is full of eclectic pieces ranging from French antique to modern classics including Barcelona and Eames etc., and huge luxury 10ft silver sofas perfect for celebrity interviews etc. etc... The property is 10 minutes from the end of the M65 on the eastern side of Colne. Part-renovated, it so it offers some period settings and some blank canvases for film-makers and stills shooters. Period details and character a-plenty with large entertaining rooms, atmospheric and dark corridors and corners, Farrow & Ball paint colours everywhere, stone/wood floors in most rooms, original/reclaimed fires (many coal/stoves),many old radiators (not that efficient!),stone back stairs, original window glass and glazing bars, antique furniture, cobbled yard, and imposing front and back doors. Looking at each main room: Drawing Room 21â€™3â€ x 19â€™, blank canvas with yellow feel Sitting Room 17â€™9â€ x 14â€™3â€, blue/silver/grey, with large open fire Dining Hall 18â€™ x 17â€™6â€, dark wood and dark yellow Kitchen 17â€™9â€ x 17â€™9â€, country kitchen feel with big furniture, range cooker & butler sink, Larder, stone worktops originally for dairy work Bedrooms (5) of varying sizes and styles, from main Georgian/Edwardian (21â€™3â€ x 19â€™) to small totally black & white (13â€™3â€ x 10â€™) Top floor has landing leading to lookout through Diocletian window, with two offices/bedrooms (old servantsâ€™ quarters) with high ceilings up to roof, beams and wood floors (both approx. 18â€™ x 16â€™) It has a wide range of outbuildings and gardens in varying states of repair.

Excellent views clear across the valley to Boulesworth Hill to the front/south and to the rear/east side is Pendle Hill. Within a short drive are all the sites and settings of rural East Lancashire and various gritty mill towns. Parking for at least 12 cars, with plenty nearby.
