Property: Homes of Distinction

53 King Street, Whalley
53 King Street, Whalley

A recently completed project by its current owners, this highly impressive family home is set in generous gardens overlooking the Ribble Valley, with the added benefit of the potential for a separate annexe.

Approached via a sweeping driveway with electric gates, the property has an interesting history dating back to the late 19th Century. Entered through a heavy timber panelled doorway into a porch, the first room encountered is a generous sized snug, with central tiled Adam -style fireplace with wooden surround and mantlepiece.

The light and spacious kitchen/breakfast room hosts a central island and an extensive range of cream and light beech effect wall and floor units with granite worktops and integrated appliances. The dining area has double French doors leading out on to the side patio, with laminate flooring throughout.

The first lounge is an open plan room, but with distinct areas, which runs the full width of the house incorporating two sets of French patio doors and views over the rear gardens across to Pendle Hill.

The inner hallway leads to an office/bedroom with patio doors on to an enclosed rear flagged patio.

A useful utility and ‘dog’ room, with rear access on to a large enclosed patio is plumbed for a washing machine and also has a traditional drying rack.

The second lounge has its own external doorway, multi-fuel stove and original beams running the full length of the room. A bedroom and shower room complete the ground floor.

Moving upstairs, a wide minstrel galleried landing leads to all rooms.

The master bedroom features contemporary fitted wardrobes, shelved cupboard space and an ensuite bathroom.

The second bedroom boasts fabulous views from two elevations over the gardens and fields to the rear and the third shares this vista. A separate shower room completes upstairs.

Outside, the entire length of the front roadside boundary to the house is marked by an impressive stone wall with electric gates.

The driveway splits and sweeps around the front, providing a generous parking area for several cars, before leading down the side of the house to the garage at the rear.

The gardens are mainly lawned with a central cobbled flower bed and a generous decked area to the side of the house, ideal for outdoors entertaining.
