Property Summary

Offering all the benefits of an idyllic rural escape, this is a substantial property mixing elements of a traditional farmhouse with all the conveniences of a modern home, set in just over an acre of gardens and including an en-suite master bedroom, a separate utility room, a wine cellar and a downstairs cloakroom and WC.


Cloakroom: 1.50m (6’ 5”) x 1.00m (3’ 3”)
WC: 1.50m (6’ 5”) x 0.89m (2’ 11”)

The main access to the property is via the front door, which opens onto a spacious reception hall, a door immediately to the left leading through to the lounge, another ahead to the kitchen and one more to the right opening onto the cloakroom and separate downstairs WC.

Stairs ahead also rise to the first-floor landing, offering access to all four double bedrooms – including the master with its own en-suite facilities – as well as the house bathroom.

Kitchen: 4.55m (14' 11") x 3.78m (12' 5")
Wine cellar: 3.71m (12'2") x 2.77m (9'1")
Utility room: 4.93m (16'2") x 2.11m (6'11")

With walls decorated a bright white, the traditional, fully-fitted farmhouse kitchen includes solid-oak wall and base units above and below worktops laid out in an L-shape and incorporating a one-and-a-half bowl enamel sink beneath double-glazed windows overlooking the gardens at the side of the house.

However, there are plenty of modern touches too, including an eye-level, double, electric oven and grill, a hob beneath an extractor and other integral appliances including a dishwasher and an upright fridge.

The room also benefits from an authentic terracotta-tiled floor and under-unit strip lighting with additional contemporary touches including fixtures and fittings for a wall-mounted flat-screen TV.

Stairs down from the kitchen also lead to the arched wine cellar complete with stone worktops and offering space for coal and log storage.

A doorway at the top of the stairs also opens onto the separate utility area, which also incorporates a terracotta-tiled floor, more solid-pine storage units, space for an additional fridge/freezer and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier.

5.59m (18'4") x 5.36m (17'7")

Also with walls decorated a bright white, the lounge includes exposed beams and a delightful inglenook fireplace equipped with a substantial cast-iron dual-fuel burner. However, additional warmth in winter is also provided by twin wall-mounted radiators.

Plenty of natural light is allowed by double-glazed windows overlooking the front and rear of the property, while the room is also equipped with carpets and a TV point. A glass-panelled door leads through from the lounge to the dining room.

5.56m (18'3") x 3.43m (11'3")

The well-proportioned dining room is also carpeted and decorated in bright, neutral colours with a large double-glazed window overlooking the driveway.

A feature fireplace includes a marble hearth and stone-effect mantle framing an imitation electric fire while the room is also equipped with a second TV point, with additional warmth provided by a wall-mounted radiator.

4.50m (14'9") x 4.47m (14'8")

The master bedroom includes exposed beams and carpets and is to the left of the stairs to the first-floor landing, overlooking the front of the property through double-glazed windows.

Additional features include a wall-mounted radiator for warmth, another TV point and more neutral decor while the tiled en-suite shower room incorporates a low-level WC, hand basin, corner-quadrant shower cubicle with wrap-around sliding glass doors and a ladder-style heated towel rail.

4.85m (15'11") x 3.96m (13'0")

The bedroom is to the right of the stairs on the first-floor landing but also overlooks the driveway through twin double-glazed windows. Additional features include an integral wardrobe, carpets, another TV point and a wall-mounted radiator.

3.63m (11'11") x 2.79m (9'2")

One of the two smaller double rooms, Bedroom 3 is at the end of the L-shaped landing leading from the stairs and also overlooks the driveway at the front of the house. Features include carpets and more neutral décor while the room boasts a telephone point and a wall-mounted radiator for warmth.

3.66m (12'0") x 2.72m (8'11")

The second of the smaller double rooms, Bedroom 4 is the only one to overlook the rear of the property and includes double glazing, and a wall-mounted radiator.

2.72m (8'11") x 2.72m (8'11")

The well-proportioned and fully-tiled house bathroom is located adjacent to Bedroom 2 to the right of the stairs to the first-floor landing.

The room is equipped with a drop-in hand basin inset into a double-doored vanity unit incorporating some shelving and set below an illuminated, wall-mounted mirror. There’s also a free-standing bath tub with a shower attachment as well as a separate recessed shower cubicle with a sliding glass door. Another WC and a ladder-style heated towel rail complete the design.


An internal door from the first-floor landing also leads to a substantial storage room to the rear of the house.


The property is accessed via a private tree-lined lane which leads to an extensive stone-chipped parking area at the front of the property.

Largely surrounded by traditional stone-built walls and fringed by mature woodland, one aspect is also bordered by a post-and-rail fence with views over adjoining fields.

The large gardens comprise around 1.1 acres of space surrounding three sides of the house and also include a stone-flagged patio area bordered by a delightful and well-maintained rockery. There is also a substantial timber shed with potential for conversion into a log cabin, ideal as accommodation for visiting anglers fishing at the nearby ponds.


The property enjoys a delightful and private Calder Valley location, set back off the A646 between Burnley, approximately four miles to the north-west, and Todmorden, around five miles to the south-east.

However the village of Cliviger is within a mile of the house where amenities include the Ram Inn with its reputation as a traditional gastro pub, the smaller Queen Hotel serving homemade dishes and real ale, a village hall and the St John’s Church of England Primary School – rated “good” by Ofsted at its last inspection in 2018.

Buses from Cliviger also run regularly to Halifax, Todmorden and Burnley, the latter offering mainline train connections to Preston, Colne and Blackburn from Burnley Central, Burnley Barracks and Rose Grove and services to York, Blackpool and Manchester from Burnley Manchester Road.

Burnley also offers a large edge-of-town Tesco with its own filling station on the south side of town while the town centre includes the Charter Walk Shopping Mall as well as a good selection of high street chains and independent shops and businesses, restaurants, coffee shops, pub and cafes.

Recreational opportunities include a large cinema complex and a bowling alley, Premier League football played at the town’s Turf Moor Stadium while Burnley Golf Club and Towneley Golf Club are also located on the south side of town.
