Positioned in a group of homes which are seldom placed into the open market and benefiting from both front and rear garden areas. Two double bedrooms and convenient access immediately into Horwich centre

The Home:

An early viewing is strongly advised for this two-bedroom middle terraced home.

This group of just eight homes were constructed during the 1930s and enjoy the benefit of front and rear gardens. As you may note from looking at other homes, the front gardens have been altered to a driveway which we find to be an increasingly sought after characteristic with such properties.

It is rare that homes are placed into the open market along this stretch of Cooper Street, the subject property being a prime example as it has been owned by the same family since 1961.

There’s been a good level of ongoing maintenance with the windows being replaced during 2019 and the boiler and electrical system being renewed around 10 years ago.

Over the years, our company has sold the number of these properties and have found that they appeal to a vast group of purchasers from first time buyers to those downsizing from a larger property but wishing to retain a good address and garden.

The sellers inform us that the property is Leasehold with a residue of 978 years remaining subject to the payment of a yearly Ground Rent of £2.50

Council Tax Band A - £1451.39

The Area:

Cooper Street is positioned just off Lee lane and provides a superb balance of access into the town centre but from a cul-de-sac residential street. Houses on Cooper Street rarely come to the market due to the pleasant and convenient nature of its location. Many people look to settle in Horwich due to the transport infrastructure which includes Horwich Parkway and Blackrod train stations which link into Manchester and junction 6 M61. Horwich town centre offers a wide selection of shops, cafes and restaurants, many of which are independently owned, yet is also only a 10-minute drive from Middlebrook Retail and Leisure Park. For those who enjoy spending time outdoors the moors around Rivington Pike and Winter Hill are conveniently positioned and provide an impressive backdrop to the town itself. Anyone who has their search criteria set to good access to the countryside, excellent transport links and handy for day-to-day shops should look no further than Cooper Street.
