This 6 bedroom home is a great example of grand, stone-built construction, with retained period elements throughout. Unusually generous accommodation of around 5,000sqft, includes 4 reception rooms plus gardens and garage / parking provision, all situated within easy reach of local amenities. The property also offers excellent further scope, while being comparatively tucked-away in a location that is convenient, yet still has great access to nearby open countryside too.
Greensnook House, off Todmorden Road, Bacup, Lancashire is a 6 bedroom, semi-detached family home, superbly designed and constructed, dating originally to the 1700s. Having begun life as a notable millowner's property, the current arrangement of two semi-detached homes followed its division in the late 1800s.
Retaining some outstanding character features, the property also presents a great opportunity to further improve and add value as a result. With the high ceilings and open fireplaces typical of its time for a home of such grandeur, the property also has impressive stone and structural elements, such as the curved wall to the southwest corner, circular chimneystack and incredible stone fireplace lintel in the kitchen.
Offering generous accommodation, with 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 4 reception rooms, this is a genuinely versatile and spacious family home. Outside, great provision continues with the good size garden currently being successfully used to grow a variety of vegetables, while also having storage, greenhouse, lawn, etc. In addition, there are also gated entrances to both front and rear, with garage and ample parking provision too.
This is a home for which, without doubt, viewing in person is absolutely essential to fully appreciate the accommodation and outside space on offer.
