Bury & Rochdale Old Road, Birtle, Bury

Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
Hillcrest is a beautifully maintained Art Deco detached family home positioned in an elevated position on Bury & Rochdale Old Road, Birtle, in a good sized plot with south facing rear gardens overlooking adjacent farmland. Additional land can be purchased to the rear at very favourable rates which would create a more or less unique prospect. Our vendors have been resident at the property for around 35 years and are to be commended not only on their attention to detail but in retaining the authenticity of the 1930s era. The accommodation remains in its original layout and there are numerous original features, not least the beautifully wood panelled hallway. Over the years the accommodation has been modernised inline with current day standards, of course there is combination gas central heating and leaded upvc double glazing and a contemporary kitchen with granite worktops and a suite of Neff appliances. Positioned pretty much centrally within the plot, there are matured gardens to both the front and rear with an extensive block paved drive leading to a detached garage complex. The property offers excellent potential to extend (subject to the relevant planning). Further land can be purchased to the rear of the property, by separate negotiation to create an exceptional plot size inline with the neighbouring property. This would present an excellent opportunity to develop the plot further and create a truly desirable home.
