Truly exceptional and full of original features, this preeminent 1920's home in the tranquil setting of Weir would be a crowning achievement for anyone to own - it really is stunning!

WHY YOU MUST VIEW! Imagine a home that is not just sui generis, it simply oozes craftsmanship of the highest standard, enveloped by gorgeous woodland in a halcyon location in the village of Weir. A home where you start the day with a walk down the tree lined private road and finish with a glass of full bodied Red wine admiring the panoramic views..

This splendorous, bay fronted home was constructed in the 1920's as a proposed model concept village and even though it is one of only 7 homes, this home on 'Bent Estate' is truly unique having been extended over the years in a true labour of love.

With stunning period features such as solid Oak, Maple and Redwood flooring, original doors and fittings, exposed and polished original door casings, 3 gorgeous log burners, panelled underdrawn Welsh Blue slate roof and with a superb energy efficient boiler this is a very high specification home - even the garage has its own log burner!

With 3 reception rooms and 4 bedrooms, this gorgeous house is the perfect family home with copiousness amounts of space both internally and externally for everyone to enjoy, the children will especially love the converted attic space that runs the full length of the house and has a gorgeous porthole style window in the gable end that provides unrivalled views across the Rossendale Valley - simply sublime.

Constructed on a substantial sized plot with superb, established and superbly stocked gardens to all 3 sides, this home also benefits from a high quality Yorkstone paved patio, stone flagged entrances that are securely gated making it an extremely practical and safe environment for all the family.

A range of superbly appointed brick and slate outbuildings including a large garage, workshop and log store combine to perfectly compliment this grand home, all with light and power. A second utility room can also be found cosseted away in the garage just footsteps from the rear door and being fully plumbed for a washing machine it is an excellent use of space.

The owners of this home have maintained this home to an exceptional standard using high quality materials both internally and externally which in our opinion will require minimal works to maintain for a good number of years to come, it really is exceptional. This must be one of the most preeminent homes to come to market in recent times and is why you must view it! 

COME ON IN! As you drive up the tree lined, private road, you know this is a special place. Entering through the rear gate you cant help but experience the sublime aroma from the herb garden, complimented perfectly by the meadow scented fresh air whilst you admire the panoramic views, it is a truly beautiful setting.

Setting foot inside you instantly begin to appreciate the standard and attention to detail this home offers. The solid Oak flooring feels gorgeous underfoot! The featured stained glass period Pine door leads you into the hallway where you cant help but admire the cornicing to the ceiling. To your immediate right you will find a substantial downstairs shower room with one of the largest shower enclosures we have ever seen and with underfloor heating and designer washbasin it is divine!

Before you even cross the entrance hallway, the aromatic from the logs burning in the multi fuel stove, a smell redolant of a true home, entices you into the bay fronted lounge with grand views of the meadows and beyond. Entering into the spacious dining area through the archway, the daylight from the kitchen windows gently highlights the beautifully re-claimed solid white Oak flooring which continues through into the 2nd reception room perfectly with the continued fragrance from the second multi fuel burner, cosseted in its own tiled recess. The retained original features are in abundance, admire the original old Pine constructed, wall mounted China cabinet whilst stepping through the glazed double pitch Pine doors that lead into the 3rd reception room!

The 3rd reception room is another beautiful room that is currently being used as a home office and study and with the views of the rear garden through the large windows we can see why. Redwood tongue and groove flooring is beautifully finished as it leads you through to the internal utility room, however such is the size, quality of materials and finish it would also be a perfect morning room too!

The Maple flooring in the utility is hard wearing and easy maintenance which is great for when the family comes in after a long country walk in those muddy boots! Storing all of your outdoor clothing wont be an issue either with a floor to ceiling cupboard with gorgeous pitch Pine doors and the ceiling mounted clothes airer will dry any wet clothes in no time, and being plumbed for a washing machine too no dirty clothes need ever make it any further into the house!

After a lovely meadow walk, a welcome cup of tea will be in order and so it is no suprise that through the original Pine doorway with Bakelite knobs is where the lovely open plan Kitchen can be found. Oak worktops set this Kitchen off perfectly and as the light streams in through the large windows you cant help but notice the detailed cast Iron brackets supporting the Pine wall shelves and the country style range cooker. A large range of floor units and storage are plentiful, flattered by the tiled floor it is the natural hub of the home.

The impeccable standards continue up the easy rise staircase with its polished Pine handrail, you immediately notice that it is drenched in daylight through the 3 windows that provide unhindered, distant views across Weir village and beyond. The landing provides access not only to the 4 bedrooms but also the fully boarded loft space and a full size linen cupboard too.

The first bedroom with its walk in bay window provides further amazing views across the Rossendale Valley and benefits from recessed wardrobes and storage cupboards too. Bedroom 2 is another very spacious double bedroom and has the original and exquisite old Yellow Pine wardrobes that is sculpted and contoured into the wall so perfectly it is a must see feature! Striking views from the rear windows across meadows and woodland provides a picture perfect aspect.

Bedroom 3 is very special in that as well as being a superb double bedroom, the 3 perfectly placed windows allow daylight to stream through to provide a true panoramic view that is simply sublime, this is the bedroom that everyone will want for sure! Bedroom 4 continues the very high standards and the rear unhindered views over the meadows continues in style.

The family bathroom with its 3 piece suite and tiled walls compliments the rest of the house and with the downstairs shower room means no need to get up extra early to be first showered! The kids will absolutley love the boarded attic space which is accessed via loft ladders from the landing, it can be used for a variety of uses but you really must take a view from the porthole window encased into the gable end - the views accross the valley reach for as far as the eyes can see and are breathtaking.

Externally, the superb space and high finish continues into the outbuildings that encompass a large garage complete with its own multi-fuel burner, a second utility room with a sink and is plumbed for a washer too, it also makes a perfect wine store too ;) A workshop leading off the garage is excellently fitted out, the perfect retreat for the person who loves to be creative whilst being kept nice and warm from the log burner! A brick constructed wood store with Yorkshire paved floor has plenty of space to keep the 3 multi fuel stoves fully fuelled for weeks at a time.

The perfectly manicured and superbly stocked gardens to 3 sides are a rainbow of colours and a bouquet of aromas and being predominately south facing, the front and side gardens can be admired from the Yorkshire flagged patio, enjoying a glass of Red from here is heavenly - trust me I know!
