Touch Road, Bury

4 Bed Country home For Sale

Reception Rooms: 3 | Bedrooms: 4 | Bathrooms: 2 Property Code: 53070


A magnificent example of an early 19th century detached stone built farmhouse situated at the end of Touch Road in a hamlet of 6 similar calibre homes. Our current vendors family have been resident at the property for three generations, so it is fair to say this is the first time this property has been offered to the open market in 100 years. The property is located on the fringe of the village of Walmersley and is more or less surrounded by greenbelt farmland, the views from the rear of the property extend south across the nearby East Lancashire Railway line to the hills beyond. Bury town centre is only approximately 1 mile away as is the nearest motorway junction, most NW towns are within commutable distance and Manchester Airport is 30 minutes drive. The property has been remodelled over the years but more recently a thorough restoration was carried out by our vendor. The reception hallway has a most magnificent French Oak staircase and galleried landing, there is the latest central heating system provided by a Worcester combination boiler, honey oak upvc double glazing has replaced all the windows and doors except for the front door which has remained since the 1930s, the front garden has been relaid as a large driveway with a roundabout and central fountain and the rear gardens has been cleverly positioned to take advantage of the evening sun and of course the fabulous views. The accommodation provide four good sized bedrooms, two large reception rooms and a conservatory together of course with a farmhouse kitchen utility room and garage. There is a small paddock to the front of the property which is jointly owned by the immediate residents as a means of protecting the views to the front and of course the privacy. Further land is available adjacent to the property if required.
The property is served by septic tank, mains electricity and mains gas.
