5 Bedroom House - Detached


A once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a substantial stonebuilt property with a builders yard and outbuildings in the town centre conservation area. In the same ownership since 1958, formerly trading as Edward Davies & Sons Plasterers, it offers amazing potential to a variety of purchasers. Number 8 comprises a two-bedroom apartment and a former bedsit whilst Number 10 comprises two reception rooms, three double bedrooms and two bathrooms. In the yard there are various outbuildings and extensive parking. A southerly aspect is enjoyed by Number 10 and the yard. Requiring updating, the property will appeal to a buyer(s) with the necessary experience to oversee a sympathetic refurbishment as required of this Grade II listed historic building. (2,268 sq ft/210.7 sq m approx/EPC exempt).

A rare combination indeed. Early viewing is recommended.


The property is located on the corner of Shawbridge Street and Peel Street (inner by-pass). Highly convenient for local shops, schools and amenities.


Mains supplies of gas, electricity, water and drainage. Both properties have gas central heating. Number 8 has a Baxi boiler, Number 10 has a Main combination boiler. Council tax is payable to RVBC. Number 10 - Band D & Number 8 - Band C. The tenure is Freehold.

Additional Features

An alarm is installed to Number 10. The water and electricity to the former bedsit is currently disconnected. The windows are a combination of painted wood, single glazed and PVCu double glazed.


Framed by a stone canopy, the front door opens to a square hall giving access to a pleasant sitting room with partial views of Pendle Hill. A lovely light room with windows on two elevations. There is a tiled fireplace and boxed ceiling beams. The living room window faces south and catches the passing sunshine nicely; it has a corner built-in cupboard. The kitchen has two wide windows and a partial view of Pendle Hill. There are fitted base and wall units with laminate counters and splashback tiling, a stainless steel sink unit with mixer tap and a built-in electric oven, ceramic hob and extractor. Accessed from the inner hall is a three-piece shower room of recent vintage with a Mira thermostatic shower, washbasin vanity unit and a low suite wc.

On the first floor there are three double sized bedrooms, two having aspects towards Pendle Hill. The third faces south and has a built-in wardrobe and cupboard. Between them is a three-piece shower room.


A drive runs past the front door to the courtyard/small garden area with two small outbuildings.

Number 8 - Ground Floor

The front door opens to a hall and off it a sitting room and shower room which were previously used as a bed-sit. Off the inner hall is another room with dual aspect windows and a most interesting wall niche. On the first floor there is a sitting room with dual aspects windows, a fitted kitchen, bedroom and a shower room.

The Builders Yard

Accessed through heavy metal gates with a variety of buildings including a brick-built garage with a mezzanine floor and an open bay. Older residents will remember Edward Davies & Sons (Plasterers) trading from here and the building by the gates was formerly used as the plaster shop. Next to it the former ladder store and opposite, a wc. The concrete surfaced yard can accommodate multiple vehicles and represents a valuable asset.

In the Agent's opinion this property is suitable for buyers with experience of development and refurbishment.
