Unfinished Business - Perfect For Developers Or Families That Aren’t Afraid To Get Stuck In.

This substantial double-fronted detached is well on the way to becoming a fabulous four-bedroom family home. Now it’s time to knock down some walls and extend!

The current owners have had it since 2021. Since then they've secured planning permission for two extensions which will transform this traditional former three-bedroom detached into a superb four-bedroom family home.

And as you’ll see from the photos, the work is already well underway.

But now it’s reached the crucial stage of building the two approved extensions the owners want to move on with their lives and pass the building baton to someone else.

So this will be the perfect opportunity to nip in and take over. Especially if you’re looking for a property project with all the hassle of obtaining planning permission having already been done for you.

The planning permission includes adding a single-storey extension on one side and a more substantial two-storey extension on the other side, wrapping around to the rear.

It’s not really worth dwelling on the current layout, which has a lounge and a kitchen on the ground floor, with a storage area at the rear.

Upstairs currently has two bay-fronted double bedrooms, a smaller bedroom and a stylish shower room.

Once the plans are completed the ground floor will be transformed into a superb sociable space, ideal for our busy modern lives.

The kitchen will become a large, open-plan space for cooking, eating and relaxing together. The plans show it running from the bay window at the front to the rear extension, complete with bi-fold doors and a skylight.

The current lounge will remain, but now with the addition of a built-in garage, home office, utility/downstairs toilet and a playroom for the kids.

Upstairs will see a similarly impressive transformation. The two bay-fronted double bedrooms will remain, with another two added - one with a spacious ensuite shower room.

The property sits on a substantial 360m2 plot - so even after adding the extensions there’ll still be plenty of outside space to enjoy.

The location is excellent, less than 5 minutes in the car (or a 15-minute walk) from the centre of Longridge.

The popular market town will have everything you need on a day-to-day basis and if you’re looking for a greater selection of shops, bars and restaurants it’s only 25 minutes in the car to Preston.

There’s a great selection of “Good” primary schools nearby, with St Wilfrids being closest - less than 10 minutes walk away.

Longridge High School is even closer - only an 8-minute walk or a 2-minute bike ride away.

You don’t often find a property project like this, well underway with all the admin and hassle of getting planning approval already taken care of.

It’s not going to be for everyone, but if you’re a developer or a family willing to take over and complete the work, it could be just what you’re looking for.
