Property Description

'Ashdale' is a magnificent example of Victorian grandeur, situated on the outskirts of the West Pennine Moors, in Darwen. Built circa 1871 and with many of the original features. This captivating seven bedroom stone detached home, displays personality and plenty of period charm. Enjoying a commanding position with superb views and a plot of approx. 2¼ acres, including stables, paddock, stream, some woodland and gardens to all sides, this distinctive residence would be perfect for large or growing families, and for those requiring equestrian facilities. Words and photos simply cannot do this 19th century family home justice, and therefore viewings are strongly advised to absorb and appreciate the many exciting qualities of this alluring period home. The property is located in a convenient position just two and half miles from the M65 motorway network, Entwistle Reservoir and picturesque rugged West Pennine Moors countryside. Well placed for shopping facilities and amenities in Darwen and the neighbouring towns of Blackburn and Bolton. Darwen rail station is just a mile away providing great commuter links to Manchester and the surrounding areas, local schools at primary and secondary level can be found within a mile of the property.

An ornate staircase leads to the first floor. There are two large reception rooms, offering fantastic views over the gardens and fields beyond.
