Bury & Rochdale Old Road, Heywood

4 Bed House - detached For Sale

Reception Rooms: 3 | Bedrooms: 4 | Bathrooms: 3 Property Code: HBP37190

Offers over £600,000

A most impressive and we would say unique, detached family home situated approximately midway between Bury and Rochdale town centres in an area originally known as Top O'th Wood. The property was originally constructed during the 1960s and the most striking feature, the large bay window to the front, was added during the 1990s when the property was totally remodelled internally. The property sits in a plot of over 1/2 acre (with more available if required), with open southerly views to the front across Bury & Rochdale Old Road towards Manchester and the Cheshire Plains beyond, to the rear the grounds abut open farmland and the current vendors often see wild deer on the rear lawn. All mains services are connected and the adaptable accommodation briefly comprises: substantial entertaining hall, lounge, breakfast kitchen with utility room off, play room/office, two ground floor bedrooms and three piece shower room, first floor galleried landing and two bedroom suites with built in wardrobes and ensuite bathrooms. To the outside there is a large tarmac driveway leading to the garage block with two additional storerooms.
