Property Description

Are you a developer looking for a unique project? We have a wonderful development opportunity to enhance something very special and totally unique. Where old meets new, the scheme will be made up of three historical buildings which will be retained and re-modelled, whilst adding three new houses to the mix... resulting in an exclusive development of up to eight properties!

The Historic Lea Gate Farm

Lea Gate Farm has been treasured by the same family for decades... now the time has come for this local treasure to be developed and re-invented for future generations to admire. This farm was one of ten working farms around Harwood and Bradshaw and stood within its own grazing land. In the '60s the majority of the farmland in the area was sold for development, but the farm buildings at Lea Gate remained and farming continued until 2005.

The Farmhouse

The distinctive building at the front of the site is the Farmhouse, with its attached cottage and dairy. The farmhouse itself is Grade ll* listed, ensuring the historic fabric of the building and the inherent character are preserved, as you would wish with such a piece of history! Originally thought to have been one dwelling, then later divided into three cottages, the farmhouse is now made up of two dwellings plus the dairy.

The Barn

As you take a look around you will note the Barn's striking little details which all add to the charm, touches such as a blessing stone to the side gable bearing the date '1729', reminding you that this is a rare one of a kind gem and by developing it you will be making your mark in history.

The Shippon

The Shippon is sited next to the barn and this building is not listed, again it presents some fabulous features as you would hope to find on a building of this type, but with added scope for you to design as you wish!

The Proposal

This is a rare development opportunity to create something very special and totally unique. Where old meets new, the scheme will be made up of three historical buildings which will be retained and re-modelled, whilst adding three new houses to the mix;- resulting in an exclusive development of up to eight properties!

The farmhouse is in need of full renovation and offers enormous potential to the right developer. You will need listed building consent to renovate this beautiful old building due to its status. There is a stone dairy at the back of this building which could be incorporated into this renovation too. The Barn is also Grade ll listed and would need planning permission for conversion to residential use. Again, the barn has superb character and offers enormous potential to create a fabulous property. The shippon is not listed and planning permission has already been granted to convert this building into two houses.

In addition to the renovation and conversion of the three existing buildings, planning permission has been granted for three new houses towards the rear of the site, these will form one block of three, which all have gardens and parking. The stone walls will be retained and also the cobbled courtyard which will be improved beautifully. The development will create an attractive courtyard with dwellings on three sides, off-road parking, and private gardens.

The Setting

The external stone walls of the barn and shippon run alongside Lea Gate, creating a natural screen from the road. It's not easy to see the site as it's tucked away, however as you pass through the stone gate posts and into the cobbled driveway, you will see the site in all its glory.

The setting is conveniently located in the heart of the village of Harwood and within a stone's throw of the shops and amenities. A doctor, dentist, optician, post office, hairdressers, and beauty salons galore all make up the rich tapestry of Harwood village. The village is extremely convenient for schools, and transport link with buses to both Bolton and Bury. You are just a short drive from Hall 'ith' Wood and Bromley Cross train stations for direct trains to Manchester and Clitheroe for when you want to venture further afield.
