Situated in one of Bolton’s most prestigious districts, this handsome three/four bed 1940s detached residence is a real gem, having been under our clients’ ownership for decades and boasting an abundance of curb appeal, as well as occupying arguably the premium plot within this leafy avenue of mature homes. Constructed in 1941, the property positively overflows with character, with an array of charming original features on display throughout its spacious living areas, which extend to in excess of 2,130 square feet in total and include an extension to the rear which provides the option of annexed accommodation, which will be ideal for an elderly or disabled relative.
The highly desirable district of Heaton is undoubtedly one of Bolton’s premium settings, being renowned for its diverse range of prestige and character homes, as well as its close proximity to Bolton School, one of the finest educational establishments within the North-West, if not the country, which is within walking distance. It is the convenience of the position which is also worthy of special note, being situated just a few minutes outside the vibrant town centre of Bolton, which benefits from a wide range of high street stores, bars and eateries, which will be ideal for those who enjoy a hectic social calendar and, for the commuter, the railway network can be accessed within the town centre or at Lostock Parkway, both of which provide swift links into Manchester, with the A666 and M61 being equidistant, should one prefer to travel by car.
One enters the accommodation via the entrance porch and into the reception hallway, with its useful cloakroom and guest WC, where one is immediately enveloped by the warm and inviting ambience which is so prominent in homes of this era and emphasised by the panelled walls and rather grand staircase to the first floor. The property boasts three main reception rooms, ensuring there is plenty of opportunity for each generation to enjoy their own leisure space and the usage of which can be interpreted to suit a new owner’s lifestyle; currently arranged as a front-facing 14’ sitting room, complete with a large bow window which bathes the room in natural light, and a rear-facing 16’ lounge, complete with uPVC double glazed French doors onto the garden, as well as a lovely feature fireplace, with inset coal-effect, burner-style gas fire, which creates a cosy atmosphere perfectly conducive to relaxation. The adjacent dining room also enjoys a delightful aspect over the rear garden and itself has some lovely period touches, such as the original built-in dresser and the wall-mounted butler’s bell box, whilst the off-lying kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and base units in cream, with complimentary laminated work surfaces and equipped with an integrated high-level double electric oven, five ring gas hob and extractor canopy. The annex can be independently accessed externally or via the main house, being suitable for a variety of purposes, such as a work or play space, but which lends itself perfectly for use as a self-contained area for an elderly or disabled relative, comprising of a 12’ bedroom with uPVC double glazed French doors onto the garden, a three piece shower room and a kitchenette/utility room.
If one ventures up to the first floor via the impressive staircase with its feature leaded window, the sizeable landing provides access to the three very well-proportioned double bedrooms, including the 16’ master bedroom, which benefits from a two piece en-suite washroom. The accommodation is completed by the main family bathroom, which is fitted with a three piece suite in white, comprising of vanity wash hand basin, panelled bath with overhead shower and separate WC.
Externally, the magnificent plot is a real horticultural treat and sure to score highly with any green-fingered buyers, the gardens being beautifully landscaped and bursting with mature trees and shrubs. The rear garden particularly is a stunning oasis and wonderfully private, being mainly laid to lawn and boasting a water feature and a block-paved patio where one can relax with a glass of wine in the sunshine. To the side elevation, a large area provides space for a greenhouse and storage or one may wish to explore the potential of extending the accommodation, subject to the necessary consents. Off-road parking facilities are provided on the driveway, which also gives access to the garage. We would highly recommend an early appointment to view this lovely home to avoid disappointment.
