A rare opportunity to acquire a detached home in an excellent plot size adjoining fields to the side and rear and within a prime residential area plus stunning views towards Rivington Pike. There may be scope for further extension/re-development subject to the usual planning consents. Early viewing strongly advised.

The House:

A fantastic and rare opportunity to purchase a detached home which is situated within a generous plot of around 0.224 of an acre and located in a very high calibre semi rural location with open fields to the side and rear plus a superb view of Rivington Pike and the surrounding hills.

The property would no doubt suit those downsizing from a large home but wishing to retain large gardens and a high quality location. There is also great potential to work with the existing structure and gain planning permission to extend and thus create a house tailored to a buyers own style and specification. Equally, a buyer my consider wholesale redevelopment of the plot where the location can support selling figures in excess of £1M.

The current layout includes a lounge and breakfast kitchen to the ground floor and two bedrooms plus bathroom and separate shower room to the first floor. Either the shower room or bathroom could easily be sacrificed to create an additional bedroom. 

We are advised that the property is Freehold and council tax band E

The Area:

Dryfield Lane is a highly regarded road in Rivington which is a village just on the outskirts of Horwich. The location blends a rural setting seamlessly with excellent access to facilities and an excellent transport links. The popular and independent Bolton School is around 5 miles away and Dryfield Lane is close to their bus route. Horwich town centre, which includes a good collection of largely independently owned shops and services is under one mile away whilst larger retail outlets can be found towards the Middlebrook development close to the football stadium which includes associated transport links (Horwich Parkway train station on the mainline to Manchester plus junction 6 of the M61).

Blackrod train station is physically the closest rail link, is on the main line to Manchester and is around 1.5 miles away whilst the motorway junction is around 3 miles aware. Those busy working in Manchester city centre, for example, would no doubt relish their journey home to a rural retreat to enjoy the country park setting and enviable views. The area is synonymous with the philanthropist Lord Leverhulme who is understood to have socialised with the owners of properties in the area. To enjoy a slice of the towns heritage along with an individual residence and proportionate garden then look no further. This could well be the home for you.
