Main Description:

The House:

An early viewing is most certainly advised for this well presented three bedroom 1930s semi-detached home.

'Glengarry' is located in a very popular group of homes and represents an ideal purchase for a great variety of buyers. Some particularly outstanding features are the open plan kitchen and living area, which is positioned to the rear to take advantage of the open aspect, the generous room sizes for bedrooms 1 and 2 (bedroom 3 does not include the bulkhead from the stairs providing a square footprint to the room) which together with the rear garden which enjoys a view towards Rivington Pike. In addition to this, the pleasing entrance hall and individual lounge help to provide those traditional characteristics that attract many people to purchase homes built within this era.

There are some quality original features including stained and leaded windows plus stripped floorboards. The current owners have also re-instated stained glass windows to the front of the property in keeping with the original and added a decorative fireplace to the master bedroom.

We would also suggest investigating the floorplan to appreciate the utility and versatile boot room / office; ideal for those returning from a walk in the nearby hills but not wishing to bring their muddy boots/paws back into the main accommodation and / or for those wishing to have a space to work from home.

Externally there is a drive and front garden plus rear garden and useful store.

The Area:

This property combines an excellent transport infrastructure together with the superb access to nearby surrounding countryside. Junction 6 of the M61 is approximately 3 miles and the mainline train stations of Blackrod and Horwich Parkway are 2 and 3 miles respectively.The home is very close to Gingham Brow and Mill Lane which are some of the many access routes into the nearby hills and therefore many people buy in the area who enjoy dog-walking, running, cycling etc. The town includes a good variety of shops and services and also benefits from an out-of-town retail complex. For the growing family there are a number of nurseries together with schooling from primary schools through to a-Level stages.
