Manchester Road, Blackrod, Bolton BL6

Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
The Home:

Check out the superb media tour of this three bedroom end terraced which offers impressive accommodation that is not necessarily obvious from a simple drive-by inspection. The ground floor includes a lounge to the front which enjoys the excellent views with an open-plan living area and kitchen to the rear.

In addition to this, the garage has been converted (whilst retaining useful storage area) which has created a ground floor shower room located next to the ground floor bedroom creating a self-contained annexe which could be used as an office, study or even Airbnb accommodation (though this could be a further living room if required). To the first floor there are two bedrooms, both of which include fitted furniture. The master is located to the front to enjoy the superb views and is an excellent size. There is a versatile loft area which the current owners use as an occasional bedroom and study.

We have been advised by our vendors that the property is leasehold with a ground rent of £0 per annum. The lease length is 999 years and the Council Tax Band is B.

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 1 mile away and Horwich Parkway which is just over 2 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 open space immediately to the front. 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 at Middlebrook, close to the football stadium which is a distance of around 2.5 miles away.
