Hollins Lane, Bury, Greater Manchester


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
A period cottage property formerly the main farmhouse for Kilner Farm with the attached barns which have now been converted into 2 separate dwellings. We are informed that the cottage dates from the mid eighteenth century and is complete with a number of original features to include beamed ceilings and latched internal doors. The property occupies a position close to Hollins Lane and within walking distance of a handy parade of shops at Unsworth Pole. Of course Whitefield centre and indeed Manchester City centre are within easy reach. The current owners have been custodians for the last 18 years and are to be commended for retaining as much of the originality as possible whilst introducing modern conveniences and services. The property has triple upvc double glazing, combination gas central heating fired from a 'Worcester' combination boiler, a conservatory has been erected to the rear and there is a rear driveway protected by remotely operated gates meaning off road parking for 2 cars. The accommodation breifly comprises: entrance vestibule, lounge, sitting room, inner lobby, kitchen, office room, utility room, conservatory, first floor landing three good sized bedrooms (the master with ensuite) and main bathroom. To the outside there are spectacular gardens showing the years of investment and hard work lavished by our vendors.
