In the 30 years of running our office I don't think we have been as proud to present such a stunning home to the market. This beautiful, three-storey, Edwardian Villa epitomises everything you would want in a house today ie, luxurious, contemporary living with a vintage twist. Built over 2,635sq feet we challenge anyone not to be instantly wowed with what 'Moorfield' has to offer.

On the ground floor you enter via a charming vestibule which retains its original mosaic floor and Arts and Craft decorative features. This leads to an impressive, double-height entrance hall which sits beneath a spectacular stained glass roof-light. What immediately grabs your attention however, is the grand, sweeping staircase with its carved balustrades and newel posts. The entrance hall provides access to three reception rooms with one currently used as a traditional dining room all with lovely views of the exterior of the property. The lounge faces directly on to Bold Venture Park. It has huge sash windows with leaded lights, attractive decorative plasterwork and period features. “The Snug” (or “Blue Room”) is a particularly attractive, space with an original Arts and Craft Fire surround painted panelling and a beautiful ceiling. To the bottom of the hallway there is access to a lovely dining kitchen, with a range of built in appliances and cupboards. It also has the benefit of an original walk-in larder. From here there is access into a separate utility room which opens on to the rear workshop/studio. This is a charming building in itself with its own outside access from the back garden. It is currently used as a studio space but this additional room has huge potential to be developed further. Granny Annex? Garden room? Home office? We will let you decide.

Moving up to the first floor there is a wide, open landing area providing access to three double bedrooms, a large three piece family bathroom & a separate WC. Two of the three bedrooms have bespoke custom fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom which looks out directly on to Bold Venture Park through large sash windows, also benefits from a stylish, en-suite shower room. To the top floor we come to the fourth and potential fifth bedroom. Currently this area is used as an office with an additional, cosy guest bedroom under the eaves. However, this space could be developed further to create a larger bedroom with en-suite and dressing room. Throughout the house, each room has its own unique and individual qualities, retaining many of the original features, restored with care and provides an effortless flow from room to room. With its tall stained glass windows cleverly positioned, the house generates lots of natural light and is complimented superbly with antique or vintage light fittings which are in keeping with the grand scale of the house. There are two gas boilers providing the main heating along with gas fires in the two living rooms and a multi-fuel stove/log-burner in the dining room. We advise everyone to watch the 3D virtual tour to give them a more clear and precise view of the layout.

When it comes to the outside space, this is equally as impressive as inside. With a mixture of lawn and patio areas to the rear providing an excellent spot to enjoy 12 months of the year. There is direct access into both the house and the studio/workshop which gives potential buyers further scope to adapt to how they want to use it. To the front there is a private shared driveway with impressive gates which are original to the house. The driveway is owned by the house but provides right of way to the neighbouring property. There is space for approximately 3 normal sized vehicles to park and the driveway is screened by attractive shrubs and hedges to the front for extra privacy and has security lighting along its border.

The house directly faces Bold Venture Park and its south-facing back garden nestles beneath Darwen Tower and the Moors, a highly sought after position which will rarely become available again. The house offers peace, quiet and a semi-rural lifestyle yet practical easy access into the town centre with easy transport links. Darwen is on a direct railway line to Manchester the centre of which is just 20 miles away; or in the other direction there is Clitheroe and the Ribble Valley. There are a range of local cafe's, an organic veg shop and restaurants in close proximity which are highly rated as well as some great schools, both primary & secondary.

The owner will be very sad to let her beautiful home go, but is ready for a new project on a smaller scale. We cannot stress too highly the benefits of viewing this lovely home to fully appreciate what the house has to offer. Contact our sales team today who will happily assist further.
