STYLISH AND IMPOSING DETACHED FAMILY HOME / TASTEFULLY PRESENTED THROUGHOUT / GENEROUS GARDEN PLOT / LOCATED ON THE DOORSTEP OF GAWTHORPE HALL / A simply ‘must view’ property, located on South Drive –located adjacent to the entry to the historic Gawthorpe Hall. A family home not to be missed.

This superb property is located adjacent to the Stockbridge entrance to Gawthorpe Hall and its abutting Shuttleworth gardens. Steeped in vast amounts of history, the Hall is often referred to as the ‘Downton of the North’. Having been gifted to the National Trust in the 1970’s, the Hall’s origins are that of a ‘pele tower’ – a reinforcement built by the Shuttleworth family to protect and defend against attack by the Scots in the 14th century. Richard Shuttleworth was instrumental in the drawing up of the plans for Gawthorpe Hall, but after his passing it was taken over by his brother, Rev. Lawrence Shuttleworth – the foundation stone being laid in the early 1600’s. In the 1850’s, novelist and poet Charlotte Brontë was invited by then-owners Sir James and Lady Kay-Shuttleworth to stay at Gawthorpe Hall – giving the Hall its place on the now-famed ‘Brontë Way’ walk through Lancashire and Yorkshire. In the 1950’s, Burnley Football Club took up residence for day-to-day training in Gawthorpe, with more recently the upgrade of facilities with the multi-million pound investment of the Barnfield Training Centre.
