Positioned in an A1 location within a popular cul-de-sac and enjoying open fields to the rear. This home has been very well maintained during its lengthy ownership and offers scope for further extension.

The Home:

Our clients have lived in this property for approaching 60 years which is testament to the quality of location and immediate environment.

By original design, there are three bedrooms to the first floor and to the ground floor a lounge, breakfast kitchen and ground floor bathroom.

There is potential to extend both to the side and rear subject to the usual investigations and consents. As the home enjoys a fantastic location adjoining open fields it is easy to imagine the layout being adapted to embrace this particularly strong feature.

The property has been nicely maintained and updated over the years and we feel there is a great opportunity for a buyer to settle in a very pleasant home for a long-term stay.

The sellers inform us that the property is Leasehold with a presumed term of 999 years from 1964 and a Ground Rent of £6.50 per annum

Council Tax Band C - £1,935.20

The Area:

Blackrod is a popular village within the BL6 postcode area and therefore benefits from brilliant access to key transport links such as Blackrod train station and Horwich Parkway. Junction 6 of the M61 is around 1.5 miles away. As a result, many locals consider Manchester and the Trafford Centre as an appropriate distance to work, shop and socialise.

The cul-de-sac is located just 0.5 miles from the A6 therefore travel by the road network is conveniently positioned. We find that in addition to the transport links, a strong factor attracting people to the general area is the access to this excellent countryside.

The neighbouring area of Horwich has great access to a stretch of the West Pennine Moors and Winter Hill, together with large areas owned by the Woodland Trust, whilst the village itself includes access towards Haigh and the neighbouring village of Adlington which includes a stretch of the Leeds-Liverpool canal.

In terms of commercial facilities, the village includes a handful of shops and services, together with doctors and a library, with further opportunities available within Adlington, Chorley and Horwich town centres working 'hand-in-hand' with the out-of-town retail development, close to the football stadium which is a distance of around 2.5 miles away.
