Particulars of Sale

The Court House & The Green

Bolton By Bowland | Clitheroe | Lancashire | BB7 4NP


Stunning Grade II listed home with separate 3 bedroom cottage. The Court House, situated on one of the two greens in the tranquil and charming village of Bolton-by-Bowland, dates back to 1704 with earlier remains. This impressive period home has some fine principal reception rooms, including the double height ceilinged former court room, which have retained many original features including wooden parquet flooring, beamed ceilings and stone mullioned windows.

Rarely available for sale, The Court House offers an interesting package of a sizable main house with characterful accommodation extending to just shy of 3,700 square feet, private established gardens and grounds (including a tennis court) of some 0.65 acres in total, and a separate detached 3 bed cottage to the rear of the plot with accommodation extending to over 1,400 square feet including integral garaging.

The main house, formerly used as the court for the Forest of Bowland, offers charming accommodation arranged over three floors to one side and two to the other. It briefly comprises a central entrance porch with original stone bench seating, sitting room with feature stone fireplace, cosy library, formal dining room with parquet flooring and mullioned windows facing the village green, dual aspect dining kitchen with ample fitted cabinetry, Aga and bench seating area, and large cloakroom with w/c and wash basin completing the ground floor accommodation. To the first floor are two double bedrooms, one with its own dressing area, a house bathroom and a separate shower room. A particular feature is the grand former court room with double height ceiling, three large picture windows overlooking the village green which flood the room with natural light, and a central open fireplace with impressive stone surround. The upper floor houses two additional bedrooms and a further bathroom.

Bolton-by-Bowland, first recorded in the Domesday Book in 1087, is arguably one of the most attractive villages in the Ribble Valley, in a beautiful area in the Forest of Bowland. There are numerous walks in and around the village, along with a pub at its centre. There are also tea rooms a short distance away. It has two village greens where you can see the remains of the 13th century market cross and stocks next to the memorial garden. Just two miles downstream, stands the ruins of Sawley Abbey.

Gardens and Grounds
The property occupies an idyllic and prominent position fronting the village green with a driveway to the side leading into the generous gardens and grounds, with a parking and turning area to the rear of the house. The well-established grounds extend to 0.65 acres in total with manicured lawns, paved seating areas, tennis court, planted flower beds and mature trees and hedging to the boundaries providing a high degree of privacy. There are also two detached outbuildings in the grounds, the larger of the two is currently utilised as a workshop and store and sits directly behind the house - ideal to repurpose as additional garaging if required.

The Court House Council Tax Band H payable to Ribble Valley Borough Council.
