IT is rare to get a mix of the old with the new, but this delightful six-bedroom home which is originally thought to date back to the 16th century lives up to that tag.

You could also say it shares the same features of its seller and estate agent of being ‘Fine’ and in the ‘Country’.

Chapel Hill Farm on Hurst Lane in Rawtenstall may have a £1.4m price tag but who could argue with that when you see the outstanding panoramic valley views?

It is a superb example of all the very best that is semi-rural living, while still being positioned within easy reach of town centre amenities.

Looking out to the rear, the most wonderful valley views are far reaching and on to distant hillsides, while the property itself is no less impressive, with great presentation and a wealth of desirable features, including six bedrooms, four bathrooms and six reception rooms in all, plus ample gated parking and outdoor space too.

But one of the things that add to this superb property’s desirability, is the separate, self-contained one-bedroom annex suite and detached spa room with hot tub, aauna and shower facilities, recently used to accommodate AirBnB bookings, generating high demand.

Throughout the interior of the property, there is great natural light and specifications are high, including for kitchen and bathroom fixtures.

There is modern family living and a wealth of reception areas perfect for versatile and adaptable use. This is certainly a property with exceptional appeal.

You do get the impression of grandeur and luxury as you walk in through the entrance hallway with its airy open space and wonderful staircase.

This property is great for entertaining family and friends with open space flow from room to room and lots of lounge areas.

What is even better is that during the cold winter months you can enjoy the feel of going to the ‘pictures’ as the house has its own cinema room.

There is an annex which could be great for guests or even members of your family to help with childcare.

It includes a kitchen or dining room, open to lounge, and a first-floor landing with bedroom and bathroom off.

This home is a tranquil retreat to get away from busy working life and enjoy some of the best parts of Lancashire... the views.
