Tower Buildings, Chorley Old Road, Horwich BL6

Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
The House:

A versatile three bedroom and three storey stone-built cottage positioned in a high calibre area which will no doubt be of particular interest to those people seeking excellent access to the surrounding countryside. Whilst the location offers this excellent access to the rural surroundings it is important to note that useful transport facilities such as mainline train links and junction 6 of the M61 are around 2 .5 miles away.

The layout includes an individual lounge which is positioned to the front and provides further access to a dining kitchen designed to include an island unit. To the rear of the home there is a versatile space which is currently used as a home office but would otherwise suit a great variety of purposes and this area opens to the garden.

Spread between the first and second floors there are three bedrooms two of which are double size and an additional single bedroom. There is also a useful study zone to the first-floor landing and the bedrooms are served by a well-designed bathroom to the rear.

There are some particularly pleasant cottage features such as the log burner, which is set on a stone hearth, timber floor to the lounge and also an Indian slate finish to the kitchen floor.

Homes offering flexible accommodation often generate good rates of interest and are likely to appeal to a broad sector of the market.

We have been advised by our vendor that the property is Leasehold with a ground rent of £2.50 per annum and the Council Tax is Band C.

The Area:

Tower Buildings are located in a high calibre address around a mile and a half from Horwich town centre and around two and a half miles from junction 6 of the M61 and Horwich Parkway train station. This station is on the mainline to Manchester and the airport. The area manages to strike a lovely balance of these convenient amenities with superb access to the surrounding countryside and therefore the location tends to attract people who enjoy spending time outdoors. There are footpaths leading immediately from the area with access towards High Rid reservoir, Smithills and Winter Hill, whilst the nearby Georges Lane is one of the main routes towards Rivington Pike and its associated moorland. Many locals consider Manchester and the Trafford Centre an appropriate distance to shop and socialise and is therefore another great attribute to the area.
