Main Description:

The House:

Knowsley Fold occupies the site of the original Victorian dwelling that lends its name to this cul-de-sac and we believe is the largest plot within this group of homes, which is known to be one of the most desirable and high value cul-de-sacs within the town. The most recent Land Registry entry shows a sale at £2.75m which reflects the nature of the locale. In its current form the property includes four reception areas to the ground floor providing extensive and flexible areas for entertaining and with considerable possibilities for extension or reconfiguration. To the first floor there are five double bedrooms with three bathrooms (one en suite). A unique feature of Knowsley Fold is the way it combines extensive glazing and use of five French windows with a high level of privacy due to being surrounded by many substantial mature trees. We regard this as a rare opportunity to purchase a remarkable property which is available for the first time in approaching 30 years and will no doubt suit an individual looking to buy their forever family home. Given the interest in high value homes within this immediate part of town in recent years, an early viewing should be considered essential.

Knowsley Grange is located just off Chorley New Road within Heaton and is one of the town’s most prestigious roads. It plays host to a number of large high value dwellings where the Land Registry shows the most recent sale at £2.75m. Important transport links such as the mainline train station towards Manchester is just around 1 mile away whilst junction 5 of the M61 is approximately 2 miles away. We therefore find that many people settle within this area who wish to benefit from these transport links and have a requirement to commute towards Manchester and beyond.

More generally speaking the town maintains a remarkable balance of family friendly characteristics: On one hand the aforementioned transport links make the area an ideal commuter belt whilst those who have desire to have easy access to superb countryside will also be delighted to know that the West Pennine moors and Smithills Estate (which has recently been purchased by the Woodland Trust) have access points at between 2-3 miles.

In terms of amenities there is a traditional town centre in nearby Horwich offering many independently owned shops and services which combines brilliantly with the large 'out of town' retail development close to the football stadium and includes large supermarkets together with the likes of cinema, gym, restaurants etc. Bolton Town Centre and main railway station are approximately 2 miles away and accessible via a high frequency bus service approximately 200 metres from the house. Many locals would also consider Manchester and the Trafford Centre as an appropriate distance to shop and socialise. Schooling often plays a large role when purchasing such a dwelling and the renowned Bolton School is approximately 1 mile away on the main bus route and provides care from Nursery age up to a-Level. There are also a host of excellent primary schools which have been consistently popular and attract people to settle within the area with a good choice of further secondary school options dotted around town.
