The Gates, Harwood
4 Bed Barn conversion - house For Sale
Reception Rooms: 3 | Bedrooms: 4 | Bathrooms: 5 Property Code: 55873
The Gates is a superior development of the former Nab Gate Farm that was converted into 5 separate mews dwellings during 2004. The Gates are situated on the junction of Stitch Mi Lane and Arthur Lane in the hills between Bolton and Bury and on the borders of both Ainsworth and Harwood villages. Consequently there is good access to both the major towns and Manchester City centre is approximately 35 minutes by car. Number 5, formerly the barn of the farm, is a deceptively spacious property and offers adaptable living spaces with accommodation of over 3000 square feet in total. The property is accessed via a private road just off Arthur Lane and as the name might imply, there are some rather impressive automated gates which provide an entrance to the central courtyard and the front door. The property is bordered to the rear by open countryside and backs onto a local golf course. Our vendors have created a stunning garden and outside entertaining space to take full benefit of the views towards the historic Harwood Grange, several hundred meters away. The property is fitted with all modern conveniences and most of the windows (upvc double glazed of course) are finished internally with Plantation Blinds. There is gas central heating with a 'megaflow' high efficiency hot water tank to service the numerous bathrooms. All the rooms are finished to a high specification and the presentation throughout is exemplary. To complete the picture there is a double garage with remotely operated door and further parking within the security of the development.
