Main Description:

The House:

A rare opportunity to acquire a rather unique property positioned in an excellent rural location and offering great potential for onward modernisation. In addition to the current home permission in principal has been granted for the construction of an additional dwelling. The drive to the home really sets the scene for the surroundings on offer. The dwelling itself is built from stone, includes some lovely characteristics. The first floor hosts five bedrooms, one with en-suite and main bathroom. The ground floor includes two large individual reception rooms plus the kitchen and garden room which is positioned to the rear and makes the most of the impressive views. Externally there are around 2 acres of land, together with private driveway and a number of outbuildings, one of which is a double storey garage (these buildings have been a platform for the 'permission in principal' to be approved and as such could not be retained if a fresh property were o be built). Constructed around 1982 and in a group of homes dating back to around 1700's. The subject property is largely original in its presentation and so the purchaser should have funds in excess of the asking price to cater for the likely improvement. The services are oil heating with tank installed 2019, mains electric, mains water, septic tank. The property is freehold.

The Area:

The property is accessed via an unadopted road of about 1 mile which serves just four properties. Longworth View has a postcode which brands the home as being located in Bromley Cross, although many locals would consider the home to be just on the outskirts of Belmont and is located off Belmont Road between the village itself and Walker Fold Road/Scout Road. A useful landmark is the San Marino/Lottie's café which is close to the top of the access road leading to the dwelling. The property would suit a buyer looking for a rural retreat but it is important to note that useful facilities such as Junction 6 of the M61 are around 7 miles away, whilst the nearest main line train station linking to Manchester is around 6.5 miles away. There are primary and secondary schools which serve the area and an out of town sales retail development 6.5 miles away, whilst there are also a host of shops and services in and around Astley Bridge which is just 3.5 miles away.



The best landmark to use is the San Marino restaurant/Lottie's café on the left as you exit Belmont towards Bolton. Take the next turning on the left hand side which will initially lead to one detached barn and approximately 100 yards after this barn, you will see a sign advising private access to Lower Fold. Follow this track along for around 0.6 of a mile and you will then arrive at the desired location.
