Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
The House:

A four bedroom cottage with multiple reception areas and stunning breakfast kitchen. This offering represents a rare opportunity to acquire such a property which also includes private parking, sizeable front and rear gardens and the wonderful addition of stunning views of Rivington Pike which are achieved from the rear garden itself. The home offers an air of quality throughout and items such as the kitchen and sanitary ware have been finished to an excellent standard. The kitchen has been the most recent area to be modernised and includes underfloor heating and a thoughtful configuration, whilst the first reception room plays host to a stunning Range. A lounge-through-diner runs the full depth of the property and completes the flexible ground floor accommodation. There are four bedrooms positioned to the first floor, all of which are able to accommodate a double bed, and it is worthy of note that there is a useful loft room which has more recently been used by the current owners as an occasional bedroom and currently functions as a study. Features such as exposed stone, beamed ceilings and deep window reveals underline the charm and period features on offer.

The Area:

Montcliffe Cottages are positioned in an excellent semi-rural area at the foot of the West Pennine Moors, yet are remarkably well placed for excellent transport links including junction 6 of the M61 and Horwich Parkway train station which both link to Manchester and are approximately 3.5 miles away. The location provides a great sense of open space and allows the owners to be immersed in the impressive countryside environment. Many people who live within the area comment on the enviable ability to work in and around Manchester city centre and yet retreat in the evening to enjoy the open hills and moors.

In terms of retail opportunities, Horwich town centre which is just under 1.5 miles away and plays host to a vast array of largely independently owned shops and services. These commercial outlets go hand in hand with those at the Middlebrook retail development closed to the afore-mentioned train station which includes a cinema, gym and large supermarkets etc.... That said, many locals consider Manchester and the Trafford Centre as an appropriate distance to shop and socialise.

The area is served by a number of sports and racquet clubs. Education/childcare facilities are available from nursery through to sixth form, and it is also important to note that the bus route to Bolton School passes at the end of Georges Lane with the school itself just under four miles away.
