Delph Lane, Ainsworth, Bolton


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
A quintessential English country cottage in a truly gorgeous location at the head of Delph Lane in Ainsworth, pretty much midway between Bury & Bolton town centres. The property dates back, we understand, to the latter part of the 17th century, however records only survive to as far back as 1840. Perhaps Meadow Cottage was one of the first properties to be registered under the country's new registration laws administered by Queen Victoria. Within the grounds there is the original 'Delph' of the village now a natural pond. The property is accessed from the Bury Old Road which directly links Bury & Bolton, as you approach the property the lane become the private drive of Meadow Cottage. To the rear of the property there is a footpath that leads directly to the Duke of William Inn! The current owners have been resident at the property for over 30 years and to their knowledge the property was formerly 3 separate cottages. Now, of course, it is a fine country home and is finished to exacting standards throughout. With sealed unit double glazing and gas central heating to include with a recently installed 'Vaillant' boiler with pressurised hot water tanks, the accommodation briefly comprises: entrance hall, guest cloakroom off, utility room, farmhouse kitchen, lounge, good sized conservatory sitting room, sauna room with fitted sauna and double sized shower, first floor landing, three bedrooms (two being fitted) and a bespoke bathroom with built in furniture and separate w.c.
