Marshdale Road, Heaton
What The Vendor Says:
'The Old Vicarage' has been the centre of our family life for 30 years. We have always known the area and Marshdale Road was perfect for us. Our children went to Clevelands and Bolton School, both of which are within walking distance. The children were active members of the Tennis Club (approx 400 metres) which also has a gym. As a golfer there is a choice of 3 courses within 5 minutes drive. My office is a 10 minute drive into the centre of Bolton. The children and their friends spent many hours playing in the bushes building dens and playing football in the south facing front garden and playing tennis in the back garden. We regularly entertained in the private courtyard often for 30 people or more. It has suited our growing family perfectly and now they have flown the nest it is time for us to move on.
What The Agent Says:
Heaton is considered to be one of the towns more prestigious areas and Marshdale Road is located within a group of high value properties along a private road. It is worth noting that two properties along the nearby Markland Hill have recently sold in excess of £1M. The home was constructed around 1880 and this Victorian era of build has been a consistently popular property style. The generous room sizes, high ceilings with (some ground floor rooms having ceiling heights of 10 feet) and pleasant period features provide a level of character that modern homes struggle to compete with. The ground floor accommodation is particularly versatile and includes a dining kitchen with day room in addition to the three formal reception rooms. The master suite to the first floor is another impressive attribute and includes a dressing room plus walk-in wardrobe and stunning en suite bathroom. In summary this is a large traditional residence in a high calibre location and will no doubt suit those families looking for their 'forever home'.
