Main Description:

The House:

Both the property title and road name conjure up a wonderful image of the history which help to illuminate the many characteristics allowing this home to stand out from the crowd. Weavers Cottage, Stitch mi Lane dates back to 1752 yet it is important to note that the home was completely renovated from a near derelict state around 30 to 40 years ago. This renovation project was carried out with great attention to detail and with an emphasis on loading in as many traditional features as is possible yet with an understanding of modern design principles. These features combine to provide a dwelling that is more than just simple bricks and mortar.

The light and neutral décor which flows through the home is enhanced by aspects such as the reclaimed timber floor which has been installed in the front two reception rooms. The floor was sourced from a popular dance hall named the Palais in the town centre. There are reclaimed Victorian doors, some cast-iron radiators and a flagpole from a church. These are just some items that were sourced to create the desired finish.

The generous room sizes are particularly notable within the bedrooms and large bathroom. To the exterior, there is a lovely cottage garden to the front with central pathway leading to the porch. The side and rear combination of areas provide seating within a very private garden and courtyard environment and useful store space. There is also an excellent covered porch area which allows access to an extremely useful utility with additional store.

All in all we feel that this property will appeal to a very broad sector of the market and given the unique characteristics would anticipate good levels of interest.

The Area:

Harwood is a consistently popular village, which is well served by a good number of daily amenities and attracts many people who seek the impressive countryside which surrounds the area. A simple look at a satellite image will illustrate how much open green space there is on this north side of Bolton and many people settle in the area due to this reason. Those who are also looking to enjoy convenient access towards Bolton, Bury and Manchester often choose this area as a 'middle point'. There are a handful of shops and services (plus supermarket) in the village centre plus a good choice of pubs and restaurants.
