A NOTE FROM THE VENDOR
Located in a peaceful rural position on the West Lancashire/Yorkshire border, this delightful stone-built property with over nine-acres of land and superb equestrian facilities sits tucked away in Brogden Lane, a spot which, whilst giving the feeling of being remote is actually quite close to lots of local amenities. 'It's one of those rare locations from where no built-up area can be seen and you really could be in the middle of nowhere, however the small market town of Barnoldswick is just a five-minutes drive down the lane where there are supermarkets and twice-weekly markets, a fine mix of independent and artisan shops, some great restaurants, bars and pubs and a handy leisure center.
The popular towns of Clitheroe and Skipton can be reached in just 15-minutes whilst slightly further afield the easy access to the M65 provides handy links to all of the major towns of West Lancashire and beyond', say owners Paul and Mel. Originally converted in 2004/5, the impressive double height stone-built barn style conversion was added later and now melts into the original house to offer a generous amount of space with an abundance of modern and traditional features.
'When our children were younger we were looking for a place with a good equestrian facility to cater for the love of horses the entire family have, one where the children could really experience the joy of growing up in a stunning rural environment. Living here, our children have developed a real passion for the outdoors and all of the many joys that the countryside has to offer.'
'The views from the lounge and bedroom patio doors are quite extraordinary and change daily with the weather and seasons. Awe inspiring views take the eye to the Three Peaks of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and on a clear day Malham Cove can also be seen. Pendle hill paints yet another stunning vista to the West.'
'The tranquility of The Stables on a bright spring day cannot fail to translate to a real feeling of calm and sense of 'home'. Returning home after a work commute really is like an instant winding down from the pressures and stresses of the working day'.
'A mixture of long-standing residents and the farming community make up the neighborhood of Brogden Lane; a warm, friendly and welcoming bunch who are always ready to lend a helping hand and have joined us for many of the parties and special events we have hosted over the years.'
