The Poplars, Brandlesholme, Bury

Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
A most unusual stone detached property, formerly two cottages, we understand probably built as farm workers homes in the early nineteenth century. The property is located approximately midway along Brandlesholme Road, within 1 mile of Bury town centre, and just up the road from a handy parade of shops and yet within very easy reach of open countryside around Holcombe and Ramsbottom. The property was converted into a single dwelling many years ago but offers the possibility to reinstate to two individual home or indeed to create a fabulous 4 bedroomed family home of some considerable charm and character together with associated gardens and garaging. The property does have upvc double glazing and gas central heating and all mains services are connected. The house is currently occupied by a family member but it is prudent to suggest that a new owner will want to carry out a scheme of improvement works to bring the property up to current day standards. There is ample room and great potential to extend further if required, this really is a very unusual opportunity. Currently, the property briefly comprises: entrance hall, guest w.c., dining room with utility/office off and open staircase to the first floor, lounge, dining kitchen, first floor landing, four generous bedrooms (there is room to create further bedroom space (if required) and a three piece shower room. To the outside there are small garden areas to the side and rear, a driveway leading down to the detached double sized garage and a good sized garden area adjacent to the elevation away from Brandlesholme Road.
