Main Description:

The House:

An intriguing and rather unique three bedroom semi-detached home believed to have been constructed around the 1930s and offering larger accommodation than would meet the eye. Historically no. 11 Hillside Avenue was constructed by the owners of the attached dwelling (no. 9) and the accommodation was interlinked and as such around a third of the accommodation on offer is not visible from the front elevation (further details upon request). The result is a very well-proportioned home; the current layout offers a central hallway with reception room either side and a kitchen to the rear. There is great scope to connect reception 2 into the kitchen to create an open-plan living area if desired. To the first floor there are three bedrooms, both front-facing rooms enjoy the brilliant and panoramic views of Rivington Pike, The Mast at Winter Hill and surrounding moorland together with a glimpse of Lower Rivington Reservoir. The Home offers further scope to extend as there is a wide driveway which currently leads to a detached garage. This home will no doubt appeal to those purchasers looking to find a property which is a break from the norm. Due to the age of items such as the kitchen, décor and floor coverings there is an ideal opportunity to modernise the home to be finished to your own choice and specification.

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 over 0.3 miles away and Horwich Parkway which is just over 2 miles away. Junction 6 of the M61 is around 2 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.



From the traffic lit junction where Station Road meets the A6, proceed up the hill of Station Road taking the first turning on the right into Hillside Avenue where the subject property will be on the left.
