One of Clitheroe’s ‘oldest houses’ is on the market for Â£ 4.25million – and it has a swimming pool and steam room.
The original parts of Waddington Old Hall, located on Clitheroe Road, are said to date back to the 11th century.
This part of the building is the ‘monks’ room’ which is said to have been used by monks traveling between Sawley and Whalley Abbey.
The five-bedroom house is also believed to have been occupied by King Henry VI after his defeat at the Battle of Hexham during the War of the Roses in 1464.
Since then the property has been restored as it changed ownership – but many of the original medieval features remain intact.
The property has also been significantly expanded over the past century.
A swimming pool with observation gallery, steam room, changing rooms and cloistered garage for several cars was added to the northern boundary of the property by the previous owners in 2002.
A large hall is at the heart of the house, which leads to the living room. This room has a stone fireplace and window seats to the east and west – which overlook the gardens.
The adjacent dining room has an open fireplace and leads to a rear hallway and a kitchen / breakfast room.
The garden furniture, which was added in 1999, extends the living space from the kitchen into the garden.
There is also a utility room and a large coat and cloakroom.
Inside the luxurious house there are three staircases – including a secret staircase leading down from the master suite.
Five double bedrooms are located on the first floor. Three of the bedrooms have a private bathroom, two of which also have a separate dressing room.
There is also another family bathroom, linen closet and minstrel gallery on the first floor.
The multi-million pound house is located in Waddington but is discreetly tucked away in private gardens and grounds.
It sits in two acres of land.
The gardens were planted with a mixture of flower beds, mature trees and established hedges.
It has two double electric wrought iron gates, leading to a large in / out car park.
The Clitheroe property is now for sale on Zoopla with Strutt and Parker for an indicative price of Â£ 4,250,000.
