Shepherds Drive, Horwich
A lovely three / four bedroom double fronted end stone cottage with driveway and well proportioned garden. Some features particularly worthy of note are the open views over fields to the front and private aspect to the rear which includes views over the nearby lodge during winter. One of the four bedrooms is to the ground floor and includes an en-suite shower room as does the master bedroom to the first floor which also enjoys the excellent views. Homes of this style can be regarded as a relatively rare breed and appeal to a good variety of buyers. They tend to appeal to the growing family as well as those downsizing from a larger property but wishing to retain a good quality address and good useable room sizes. The home is gas central heated, is double glazed and includes a lovely log burner sat within an exposed brick fireplace. The kitchen also includes a gas fired AGA.
Shepherds Drive is located just off Chorley Old Road in Horwich and roughly between the Jolly Crofters and Blundell pubs. The area is therefore considered semi-rural and will no doubt appeal to those people who enjoy spending time outdoors and specifically within the hills surrounding Horwich. The town also includes an excellent transport infrastructure with the nearest motorway and rail links being close to the Macron stadium. Horwich Parkway train station is on the mainline to Manchester and this combination providing a balance of excellent travel links with the proximity of the countryside is a very strong feature of the town. The closest commercial centres are Horwich town centre and the Middlebrook leisure and retail complex and many local people also consider Manchester and the Trafford Centre to be within suitable travelling distance for shopping and socialising.
