Main Description:

The House:

Early viewing is suggested for this flexible 3/4 bedroom detached home located on a private road with open fields to front and large south facing rear garden. It is important to note that the home could function as a true bungalow if desired as the bathroom is positioned to the ground floor. As it stands, the home is used as a three bedroom and three reception room which illustrates the versatility perfectly. In addition to the reception rooms to the ground floor there is a kitchen, bathroom and conservatory.

There is also great potential to extend given that the home is an excellent wide and deep plot. The calibre of the area would allow an uplift in the price.

Such unique homes in quality locations tend to generate good rates of interest and suit those looking to settle for a long stay. All factors considered we feel the home represents an excellent proposition and offers many family-friendly characteristics. For those looking to downsize from a larger home yet retain a high calibre address with more manageable room sizes the home will no doubt be appropriate.

The Area:

A rather unique location within Lostock where there are open fields to the front with access provided along a private road and yet still allowing convenient access to the important transport links which attract many people to settle within the area. These connections include Junction 6 of the M61 and Horwich Parkway train station which are roughly 1.5 miles away. There is good access to both primary and secondary schools whilst there is an abundance of shops split between the out-of-town development close to the aforementioned transport links and also Horwich town centre itself which is approximately 2 miles away and includes a nice selection of largely independently owned shops and services.

For those people looking for excellent access towards the nearby countryside it is worthy of note that there is a footpath nearby leading up towards the hills and the bottom part of Georges Lane, which is something of a gateway towards the West Pennine moors, is around mile and a half by car.
