Main Description:

The House:

Barn Acre is a group of stone dwellings entered through a communal cobbled entrance and offers a real sense of character and individuality. This particular unit is a four double bedroom design including en-suite shower room to the master bedroom and two separate reception rooms. There is scope to create a sizeable open plan living kitchen and dining area. The property has been owned since it was first constructed around 40 years ago. We have previously been advised that some of the buildings within the cul-de-sac date back to the eighteenth century, but there were also some fresher units constructed when these older units were converted. The home has been maintained very well, but is largely original in terms of its kitchen and sanitary ware and therefore an intending purchaser should have funds in excess of the asking price to cater for likely modernisation. This particular home is nicely tucked away within the development, providing an excellent level of privacy and there is a sizeable garden which can be accessed through the main reception room. This home has the added benefit of two garages (one attached to the home and one in the colony which privately serves the development).

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 which is just under 0.5 miles away and Horwich Parkway which is just over 2.5 miles away. Junction 6 of the M61 is around 2.5 miles away. As a result, many locals consider Manchester and the Trafford Centre as an appropriate distance to work, shop and socialise. The Ofsted rated 'Outstanding' Blackrod Country Primary School is just a stone's throw away and it is worth viewing a satellite image of the property to appreciate the abundance of green land immediately surrounding the home. 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.



Coming from the direction of the M61 motorway towards Blackrod, take the left hand turn from the A6 into Blackrod village. Follow Manchester Road past the school on your right hand side. After the school, take the second left turn into Barn Acre and follow the cobbled road where you will find the property.
