A magnificent example of Carolean style architecture, Dimple Hall was originally constructed in 1668 during the reign of King Charles II of England, no doubt as a substantial estate for a wealthy land owner of the time. The hall was upgraded during the Georgian period and a number of additions were constructed, the property was eventually split into 2 homes during 1966 and our vendor took possession of Dimple Hall East around 33 years ago. The freehold property is located in the foothills above Egerton and Turton within the outskirts of Bolton and has views from more or less every window in the house across the formal gardens towards Delph Reservoir to the front, the glade and wood to the side and rear forming the grounds which in total amount to something over 2 acres. Accessed via a single track driveway over Cox Green Road the property is secluded and yet has relatively easy access to all major NW cities. The village of Egerton is only 1/2 a mile down the road and the nearest train station will be at Bromley Cross, about 2 miles away. Our vendor is to be congratulated in retaining the character of the property and any work that has been undertaken has been sympathetically completed. There is modern gas fired central heating throughout the accommodation to compliment the woodburing stove and open fireplaces. Most of the windows are from the Georgian Period however there is one original window within the dining hall which faces the inner courtyard, it is a credit to the craftsmen of the time! There is parking to the front and side and of course a garage within a former barn with hayloft above. All in all a fabulous period home ready for a new custodian for the next two decades or more.
