Bedrooms: 4
The House;

Available for the first time since 1970 and located within a very popular group of homes is this individually designed and built four bedroom and two reception room detached. There has been an excellent use of natural light within the property and the home offers some excellent characteristics such as a large entrance hall, well-proportioned garage and generous rear garden. The design would offer scope to create a larger open plan kitchen and dining area if required and with further scope to extend but still retain a nicely proportioned rear garden.

The home has been very well maintained during it’s lengthy ownership although certain aspects may be considered a little dated and as such the price has been set accordingly.

This particular section of Manchester Road between Station Road and Greenbarn Way plays host to a group of individual detached dwellings and in this regard it is a prestigious part of the village.

In summary, the home offers family friendly accommodation, is located in a popular area and we would expect to generate good rates of interest.

We have been advised by our vendor that the property is Freehold and the Council Tax Band is E.

The Area:

Blackrod is a popular village within the BL6 postcode area and therefore benefits from brilliant access to key transport links such as Blackrod train station which is just under 0.5 miles away and Horwich Parkway which is just over 2.5 miles away. Junction 6 of the M61 is around 2 miles away. As a result, many locals consider Manchester and the Trafford Centre as an appropriate distance to work, shop and socialise. The Ofsted rated 'Outstanding' Blackrod Country Primary School is just a stone's throw away and it is worth viewing a satellite image of the property to appreciate the abundance of green land immediately surrounding the home. We find that in addition to the transport links, a strong factor attracting people to the general area is the access to this excellent countryside. The neighbouring area of Horwich has great access to a stretch of the West Pennine Moors and Winter Hill, together with large areas owned by the Woodland Trust, whilst the village itself includes access towards Haigh and the neighbouring village of Adlington which includes a stretch of the Leeds-Liverpool canal.

In terms of commercial facilities, the village includes a handful of shops and services, together with doctors and a library, with further opportunities available within Adlington, Chorley and Horwich town centres working 'hand-in-hand' with the out of town retail development, close to the football stadium which is a distance of around 2.5 miles away.
