Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 6
Set within the greenbelt, Tongue Hill Farm dates back to 1735. This extended character Farmhouse has further potential to extend. It is presented to an exceptionally high standard yet the layout and feel of the property means that Tongue Hill Farm is as equally suited to day to day family life as it is to entertaining. The six bedroom home provides around 3,600 sq ft of accommodation in the main house with the additional outbuildings mainly the Games Room/Gym and Garage take the total space to just over 5,000 sq ft. Potential exists to create additional living space through a previously approved planning consent for an extension that could house a related family or simply give additional living accommodation and or a leisure suite.

The property has the benefit of a lot of character, including stone reveals, timber, oak flooring and high ceilings which are relatively unusual for a property of this type, all of which combine with the modern equipment allowing day to day family life.

The village of Pleasington has services that you would associate with a larger village, namely the Golf Club, two Public Houses, a Railway Station with links to Blackburn and Preston as well as farther afield and the Priory which is the Grade I listed Church. There are also a number of excellent Schools in the locality as well as superb access to the M65 motorway.

Tongue Hill Farm is set almost 300m from the public highway along the driveway, which leads to the open countryside, into the fully enclosed boundary which is predominantly hedged and fenced. The spacious plot is accessed via electrically operated gates which lead into the central turning and parking area which is laid to tarmac and gives easy access through to the substantial triple Garage, the outbuilding and the main residence itself.

Of stone under stone flag construction Tongue Hill Farm dates to 1735 and has been sympathetically extended by the current owners. There is a plethora of character features such as the mullioned windows, exposed timber work, natural stone and surprisingly high ceiling for a property of this period.
