Walshaw Road, Bury


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
A quite magnificent Freehold 1930s built period family home, set back from Walshaw Road and having views to the front over nearby farmland towards Holcombe Hill. The property is within walking distance of Walshaw Village centre where there is a village store, pub and the famous Rapallo Italian Restaurant. Elton High School is just down the road and Bury centre is no more than a 5 minute drive away. The property remains in its original layout with impressive hall and galleried landing, four reception rooms and four double sized bedrooms, although one of the bedrooms has been created from two single bedrooms so the option is there to return to that format very easily. Over the years many improvements have made to include upvc double glazing throughout, combination gas central heating, a replacement kitchen was installed with granite worktops and travertine flooring, there is a contemporary bathroom and one of the bedrooms has an ensuite. The current owners have been very careful to preserve the character of the property and all the original coved ceilings and internal doors, together with the original staircase remain intact. Having a total internal floor area of around 2400 feet, the property provides a substantial family home set in appropriately sized gardens with the addition of a separate double garage. All in all a rare commodity and if you are searching for a bespoke detached character home then you should consider this property very seriously.
