Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
We have great pleasure in offering a unique opportunity to purchase number 1 Entwistle Hall. A stone built grade 11* listed period property much of which was built in the 1600's, though parts of the building may survive from the original Manor built on the site by Sir Bertine Entwistle in the 1400s.

Sir Bertine is reported to have been knighted on the battlefield at Agincourt in 1415 by King Henry V himself. He later perished at the 1st Battle of St. Albans fighting for Henry VI and the House of Lancaster in the Wars of the Roses.

Location is in the most enviable of scenic settings, accessible via private roads over the reservoir viaducts. This property is surrounded by open countryside and nestled between Wayoh and Entwistle Reservoirs within this highly sought after hamlet at Entwistle. Extensive and popular walks, trout fishing, cycling and rock climbing are on the doorstep, as is the popular Strawberry Duck public house. Situated close to the rail network providing direct rail links to Bolton, Manchester and Blackburn all within 30 minutes.

The property "oozes" character throughout and boasts so many beautiful period features including stone mullion windows, beamed ceilings, Inglenook fireplace and exposed stone walls to name just a few.

Accommodation briefly comprises: spacious entrance hall, lounge with feature fireplace, dining Kitchen, 2 piece cloaks, first floor: 4 bedrooms, 3 piece bathroom, attic room (accessed via a timber ladder leading to a small staircase through a trap door), cellar room.

Outside is a pleasant rear garden including a lawn with a flagged patio, there is also the added bonus of a secret garden with a summer house on a separate plot which is secluded and would be the perfect setting to entertain guests on a warm summers evening.

The property needs modernising, hence the price for this location however offers great potential.

This is a home that must be viewed to appreciate its fantastically unique position and individuality. No chain.
