A sizable, individually designed and built detached home positioned within a substantial plot and within a high calibre environment. The size and flexibility of the accommodation is not readily apparent from the front elevation. 2931 square footage and plot size approaching half an acre.

The home

A great opportunity to purchase an individually designed and built detached home which occupies an excellent plot size and is located within a high calibre address in and around the borders of Heaton and Lostock.

It is fair to describe the property, as quite unassuming from the front, and a simple, drive-by observation would not illustrate the excellent square footage or versatility on offer. The plot was originally purchased due to the enviable location and open aspect at the rear. The commanding position has views towards the south and has a split level garden which enables the zones to be split for different purposes. A large balcony is also accessed from the main reception room.

The large reception area is a particularly outstanding feature and there is great potential to create substantial open plan, kitchen living accommodation without the need to further extend. There are two useful loft rooms which over the years have been used as childrens play areas and office areas and perfectly illustrate the potential to increase the size of the dwelling should this be desired.

Individual homes in low density, developments and offering such potential have been generating consistent levels of interest, and we would suggest an early viewing.

We have been advised by the clients the property is Freehold and council tax band G £3398.13

The Area:

Hilltop occupies a secluded yet convenient location just off Beaumont Road and with easy access via Ravenhurst Drives own traffic lights towards Chorley New Road. Being positioned here allows excellent access to Cleveland’s Prep School, Markland Hill and Lostock County Primary Schools plus the highly regarded Bolton School. In addition, the school bus routes for a number of other well-regarded schools are all within walking distance of the property (e.g. Bury Grammar, Bridgewater School, Westholme etc).

For those working closer to Manchester, commuting is particularly convenient with access to Lostock train station (around half a mile) and also junction 5 and 6 of the M61 (approx. 2 miles). Many locals would consider Manchester, and the Trafford Centre as an appropriate distance to work, shop and socialise but please note that there are a great variety of amenities within the surrounding areas plus a number sports clubs within the immediate area (e.g several tennis and golf clubs and a David Lloyd Gym all within approx. 2.5 miles).

Day-to-day shops and services can be found at the out-of-town retail and leisure complex close to the football stadium which has been ranked as the number 1reatil park in the UK. Horwich town centre offers a more traditional style of independently owned shops and services including butchers, bakers, cafes and restaurants.

The area is equally well placed for access to impressive open countryside including a stretch of the Wets Pennine Moors, The Smithills Estate which is owned by The Woodland Trust and Rivington which is known as a ‘mini Lake District’ by many locals.
