Nestling beautifully within the conservation area, this utterly charming bijoux property is one of two truly unique homes created from Vicarage Farm Barn, a listed building of townscape merit. Centrally located within this highly desirable village, the barn is believed to be 17th century and features particularly attractive stonework and timber king-post trusses. The property is better considered as the sum of its parts which briefly comprise boot room, lounge, kitchen diner, two bedrooms, bathroom, garage, stable with tack room, gated private courtyard with parking for up to five cars and a walled patio style garden. (755 sq ft/70.2 sq m approx/EPC: D).

If it fits your requirements we are sure you will love it.

Directions

Approaching Wiswell from Wiswell Lane in Whalley, continue into the village and where the road forks bear left along Old Back Lane. The property can be found on the right-hand side directly before the approach to the Freemasons Inn. Proceed past Vicarage Farm Barn into the gated courtyard of Vicarage Barn Cottage.

Services

Mains supplies of gas, electricity, water and drainage. Gas central heating from a Halstead Ace combination boiler. Council tax is payable to RVBC Band D. The tenure is Freehold.

Additional Features

The property has wood double glazed windows, oak flooring in the kitchen diner and bathroom and oak panelled internal doors.

Location

The village of Wiswell is conveniently located between Whalley and Clitheroe and enjoys excellent access to the motorway network. Bus and rail services are available in both Whalley and Clitheroe.

Accommodation

Approached through a wisteria clad arch, a stout stable door opens to a boot room of generous proportions. The floor is stone flagged and there are two windows overlooking the patio garden and courtyard. The lounge evokes a snug cosy feeling with furniture arranged around a log effect gas stove set into a feature carved chimney-piece. There are built-in bookshelves, a substantial understairs cupboard and two windows overlooking the courtyard and stable block. Oak fronted cabinetry lines three walls in the kitchen diner. There is a stainless steel sink unit, laminate counters and tiled splashbacks. A Russell Hobbs electric oven with Zanussi electric hob and extractor over. Integrated fridge/freezer, and plumbing for a washing machine. French windows open to the paved patio, offering a tempting alfresco option.

A wide staircase with twin balustrades takes you effortlessly to the first floor where you'll observe a stunning king-post roof truss which extends into both the master bedroom and bathroom. The master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling with exposed purlins and a glimpse of a view to Wiswell Moor. Bedroom 2 makes a good twin though the vendor has had a standard double in here. The well appointed bathroom comprises panelled bath with a Hansgrohe thermostatic shower over, pedestal washbasin, low suite wc, part tiled walls, oak flooring and a towel radiator.

Outside

A five-barred gate opens to a tarmacadam courtyard which provides parking for up to five cars. There is a patio style garden with a random stone wall for privacy and raised beds. A climbing wisteria drapes itself across the front wall and door arch; in the corner of the courtyard a huge stone trough. The stable has the protection of an over-hanging canopy. Accessed via the garage, behind the stable is a separate tack/storage room. A solid building offering a variety of uses, not just equestrian. From the courtyard you get to enjoy a stunning view into the valley towards Kemple End. The sunsets on view can often be quite stunning.

A full viewing is considered absolutely essential in order to fully understand this unique cottage.
