Superb individually designed detached stone property in a stunning setting within conservation area and with splendid views. Spacious hallway, two reception rooms plus open plan kitchen and living area. 4 bedrooms in total, 2  with en suite plus master with dressing room. Versatile mezzanine landing with potential to create further bedroom.

The house

Wilderswood Grange was originally built around 2002 from reclaimed stone and was latterly extended during 2016. The flexible accommodation provides the convenience of modern living in a traditional setting.

In addition to the two individual reception rooms there is an impressive open plan kitchen and living area and these spaces benefit from excellent use of natural light. Practical facilities such as a separate utility, boot room and integral garage will no doubt broaden the appeal of this home. For those individuals needing to work from home there is an excellent garden office with views over the front garden.

 To the first floor, there are four double bedrooms, the master of which includes a designated dressing room and ensuite. Bedroom two also includes an ensuite shower room. The further two bedrooms are served by a shower room. It is worth noting that the generous mezzanine landing area offers potential to create further bedroom should this be desired but otherwise has previously been used as a study and reading area.

Homes of such stature within quality environments often generate good rates of interest and for those people seeking something a little different we hope Wilderswood Grange will be the perfect home.

We are advised by the vendors that the property is freehold and council tax band E.

The area

Wilderswood is one of those rare locations that provides the best of both worlds. With good access to the motorway and rail network, the city centres of Manchester, Preston and Media City are within reach yet the location offers a great sense of open space and allows the owners to be immersed in the impressive countryside environment. Many people who live within the area comment on the enviable ability to work in and around Manchester city centre and yet retreat in the evening to enjoy the open hills and moors.

Locally, there is a wide choice of supermarkets, dining and leisure facilities in Horwich and at the Middlebrook development. At Wilderswood you will find an abundance of wildlife on your doorstep. The area provides plenty of opportunities for you to enjoy the outdoor pursuits such as bird watching, dog walking, rambling, cycling and so on. The immediate area to Wilderswood Grange accesses footpaths leading to Rivington Pike, Lever Park and Gardens and the West Pennine Moors beyond.
