COME on, we've all done it - the second you've bought a lottery ticket, you're straight online, looking at what fancy, big houses you could buy with your millions.

Sadly, it's highly unlikely you'll ever be on the winning end of the lottery, but it's nice to dream, isn't it?

For a cool £1,250,000, you could be the proud owner of 'The Riggs' in Victoria Road, Heaton.

According to estate agents Pearson Ferrier, The Riggs is a" beautifully presented and recently renovated period home thought to date from the late 1920's and set in wonderfully mature gardens."

The six-bedroom house boasts a spot in an attractive residential area within easy reach of Bolton School, The Middlebrook, Lostock Train station and the nearby motorway network.

While it has undergone renovations, it has retained its character and style from its original era, combined with the latest in convenience from ground source underfloor heating throughout, a built-in entertainment system and PVC double glazed sliding sash windows.

Set over three floors - ensuring plenty of room for whoever you may be hosting - guests will be greeted with a gorgeous reception hallway leading into a formal living room with a bay window overlooking the side gardens.

Other features include a dining room, sun lounge with bi-folding doors leading to the gardens and patio area, fitted kitchen with range of integrated 'Miele' appliances, rear hallway with access to the cellar utility and plant room and ancillary store room.

Outside there is a sweeping carriage driveway with remotely operated in and out gates and a large garden forecourt with mature trees and double garage. To the side and rear there are beautifully tended and well stocked gardens and patio areas, formal lawn, water feature, summer house and greenhouse.

All in all - not a bad place to be living. You'll just have to cross your fingers extra tight the next time time the lotto rolls around...
