HD VIDEO TOUR AVAILABLE ON THIS PROPERTY. Rose Cottage is a remarkable 18th century detached four bedroom cottage in a fabulous setting nestled in the southernmost corner of Cuerden Valley Park boasting stunning features and a rural location in the highly desirable village of Whittle-le-Woods.

Sit in the garden or on the secluded sundeck on a summer's Sunday afternoon and you will hear no traffic noise, only songbirds and the occasional cheer from the cricket across the river yet is less than 5 minutes walk fro St. John's C of E Primary School, Whittle Surgery and Whittle & Clayton-le-Woods Cricket Club and only 5 minutes to M6, M61, M65, and Chorley and South Ribble General Hospital by car. Inside the house you will find a wonderful 4-bedroom family home, parts of which date back to the 18th century that beautifully blends old with new. Once part of Cuerden Valley Park in the heart of the village of Whittle-le-Woods, the original cottage dates back to before 1750 and was originally a gamekeepers cottage for Lisieux Hall (formally known as Crook Hall).

Our clients have lived in the property for over 40 years and have substantially renovated and extended during this period, providing a characterful home with a staggering amount of living and storage space totalling in excess of 3,600 square feet. Modern luxuries have been added such as 2 ensuite bathrooms including a luxury master suite with jacuzzi bath and the latest edition - a stunning sun room that the clients call the “Marbella suite” that opens out onto a large patio area which is south-west facing and features Porcelain tiles with underfloor heating, vaulted ceiling and a feature fireplace. The original lounge has also been extended and converted into a fabulous open plan room with formal dining space and a study that provides extensive living and entertaining space, and recently when the owners decided to enlarge the fireplace in the lounge they were pleasantly surprised to discover an ancient Inglenook fireplace and this has now been restored to its former glory. Fitted with a large wood burning stove it takes pride of place in the magnificent room. The owners have renovated the property sympathetically and used the traditional features of the old house in the modern developments including exposing the external stone wall in the family/snug room which also boasts a contemporary wood burner and Bi-folding doors onto a raised sun terrace. There is a lovely farmhouse style kitchen which is large enough to fit another dining table and chairs which provides a space for the family to gather and socialise whilst a ground floor WC, utility room and double garage completes the accommodation. The garage provides scope to extend the kitchen or create further accommodation with additional space outside to build a detached garage at the rear. Upstairs arranged around a charming landing space there are four bedrooms (two with ensuite) and a luxury family bathroom. Secretly located there are two big loft rooms which provide extensive and valuable storage plus both rooms provide scope for further extensions (subject to planning approval).

Since our clients children have all flown the nest, they have been looking to downsize for years but have been unable to find anything that matches their current location. Therefore they have decided to retain some of the land to the side of the property and propose to build a new home there for themselves. This will have its own entrance off Kem Mill Lane and has been carefully designed to not infringe on the original cottage’s privacy. A new boundary wall or fence (this can be negotiated) will be built by our clients to separate the two properties and the cottage will still retain a substantial plot with gardens to front, side and rear. (Full plans are available to view online or by requesting a copy by contacting any of our branches)

Rose Cottage is a truly remarkable home and internal viewing is essential to appreciate the wealth & quality of accommodation on offer.
