Set in the most enviable of plots of approx 0.3 of an acre, which affords utmost privacy and tranquil peace, enjoying extensive views over picturesque countryside. Tockholes Village is a sought after location, not least because of its convenience for the surrounding towns of Blackburn, Bolton, Preston, Manchester and its close proximity to motorway links giving access to the whole of the North West. It is also within easy reach of the village Pubs/Restaurants.

A simply stunning property set on the most enviable of plots that must be viewed.
