Black Lane Ends is situated within Lancashire close to the border with the neighbouring county of Yorkshire. The town of Colne is just 4 miles to the west offering an extensive range of amenities including shops, bars, restaurants, schools and leisure facilities. Colne has excellent transport links with a railway station at the end of East Lancashire Line with services to Nelson, Brierfield, Burnley, Preston and Blackpool. The M65 provides excellent road links into Lancashire to the west with the A629, A59 and A65 within easy reach to the east just into Yorkshire.
This attractive stone built middle cottage is beautifully presented retaining a number of charming original features including beamed ceilings and exposed stone work but also benefits from oil central heating and double glazing throughout. The addition of the pony paddock and versatile hardstanding will be of obvious appeal to those with equestrian and hobby farming interests as well as those seeking a property with additional parking/storage space with scope to add a building, subject to planning permission.
The cottage is entered via a hall with separate w.c into a spacious open plan breakfast kitchen with a comprehensive range of wood fronted base and wall units with Belfast style sink and tiled work surfaces and splash backs. There is an electric hob with filter hood over and a separate raised level double oven and grill together with plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine. An arched opening leads through to an inner hall with stairs to the first floor and a separate study/office.
Beyond the hall is a cosy living room with beams and solid fuel stove set in a stone surround with stone hearth and wooden mantel. A feature arch with exposed stonework leads through to a pleasant dining room/sun room with external door opening to the garden and a useful storage space/pantry giving access to the understairs.
On the first floor the landing gives way to three pleasant bedrooms and the house bathroom. Accessed via a hatch from the landing is a very useful attic room providing excellent storage and with scope to incorporate into the accommodation subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
Adjacent to the cottage is a good sized stone built garage/workshop (7.98m x 4.78m) with power and light, double timber access doors to the gable and side pedestrian door. There is loft storage to one end and the central heating oil tank to one side. The gravel surfaced yard provides space for parking for The Coach House as well as for one of the neighbouring properties.
To the rear of the cottage is a sheltered garden area which opens onto the area of additional hardstanding which in turn gives access to the pony paddock of about 0.85 acres. There is vehicle access to the pony paddock and hardstanding via a right of way over a section track.
Borehole water, septic tank drainage, mains electricity. Oil central heating, security alarm.

Continue over the two cattle grids and through open countryside for approximately 3 miles and turn right onto Warley Wise Lane before reaching the Hare & Hounds pub. Continue on Warley Wise Lane for about 300 metres and turn left into the drive that leads down into the yard. A for sale sign has been erected.
