This is an incredibly rare opportunity to renovate/develop one of the oldest and most characterful homes in Newburgh located on one of the prettiest and most walked country lanes in West Lancashire.

2 White Cottages is one half of a historical 17th century former farmhouse that is of special architectural or historic interest. Considered to be of national importance it has been awarded Grade II listing.

Often photographed by passers-by it is a rare example of a Cruck-Framed building with a new stone roof (roof was completely replaced under listed buildings guidance in 2017) and rendered and lime-washed stone cladding to front and gable ends. Thought to incorporate the shippon, the property is single storey with 2 large loft rooms and features 3 full cruck trusses in internal partition walls (all concealed) and although requiring extensive modernisation, it is freehold and boasts gas central heating and a generous footprint with lots of potential for development/improvement. It also has a generous plot with land to side and rear providing scope for extensions (subject to necessary planning approval).

The location is undeniably a notable feature. Hard to beat the property borders lush greenbelt countryside with far reaching vistas to rear and beautiful canal side walks right on its doorstep. Although enjoying a fantastic semi-rural setting it is also conveniently located just a few minutes walk from the pretty village centre of Newburgh with its rich history, good local pub, charming post office & coffee shop, plus an outstanding primary school. It is also just over 1 mile from Parbold where there are excellent facilities that include a mainline train station.

Available with no chain delay viewing is absolutely essential to appreciate this truly remarkable home.
