STUNNING FOUR BEDROOM VICTORIAN VILLA ON VERY GENEROUS SIZED PLOT
ENVIABLE VIEWS TO BOTH THE FRONT AND REAR OF THE PROPERTY
AMAZING SPACIOUS ACCOMMODATION ACROSS FOUR FLOORS
PREVIOUS PLANNING CONSENT FOR DETACHED PROPERTY IN GARDENS
We are extremely pleased to have received instruction in the sale of this superior Victorian Villa which offers substantial four double bedroom accommodation in what can only be described as one of the most desirable residential areas of Greater Manchester.
This Victorian Villa is situated on Whalley Road, Ramsbottom and is extremely convenient for so many different amenities and attractions. The centre of Ramsbottom is only a short stroll away and there you will find a very eclectic mix of independent retailers, cafes, bars and restaurants. For family activities there is Ramsbottom Station, which in season is a regular haunt of the East Lancashire steam railway with its many events and open days, from 'Thomas the Tank' for the children and The Flying Scotsman for the more discerning. The larger centre of Bury is only a few miles away and for those needing to travel further afield the M66 motorway network is literally 5 minutes away.
The Villa occupies a slightly elevated position on Whalley Road and enjoys superb views to all elevations. To the front there are totally uninterrupted views across the valley with Ramsbottom below and then extending over to Holcombe Moor and Peel Monument. To the side and rear, you have lovely well tended gardens which then extend out across acres of open fields.
To the front of the property is a five barred gate which allows access onto the private driveway and detached double garage. The property continues beyond the garage to the rear where we are informed there has in the past been in excess of 12 cars parked on this driveway. There is also access up the side of the adjoining property to a second gate at the rear so in effect you have a drive in - drive out driveway. At the side and rear of the property there are a mixture of surfaces, from Indian paved drives and footpaths to imprinted concrete entertaining areas. There is also a very large lawn area making this the ideal location for those family gatherings and entertaining times in the garden.
At this stage we would like to point out that outline planning permission has previously been granted for the erection of a three storey five bedroom house on the left hand side of the garden, with access from the gate at the front. This permission has now expired so any intending purchasers must rely on their own enquiries.
The property is heated by gas central heating and is fully double glazed with the addition of bi-fold doors to the kitchen at the rear. We are informed the property is Freehold and falls within council tax band 'F' with this being payable to Bury Council.
This is an absolutely stunning property and from the front view you just cannot appreciate the true size, quality and many characteristic attributes it has to offer. If this is in you price range and in an area that suits, then please give us a call and make your appointment to view.
The accommodation is spread across four floors and comprises:
Lower Ground Floor: With steps down from the main reception hall and leading into the Home Office / Study area, adjoining this is a large spacious home cinema lounge - ideal for those family evenings with the popcorn.
Ground Floor: Vestibule through to the Reception Hall - a superb first impression of the property with its 'Amtico' flooring and many original features from the panelling to the side of the staircase, the newel post and spindles to the decorative coving on the ceiling. The staircase to the 'half landing' runs to the right hand side of the hall. On the left hand side you have two very large receptions rooms. The bay windowed lounge with its marble fire surround and inset cast iron fireback and hearth, and then the dining room with its cast iron wood burning stove recessed into the chimney breast and its French doors leading out into the garden. The dining kitchen is at the rear of the ground floor and at over 30' in length, with bi-fold doors and exceptional bespoke fitted 'German' kitchen units with several integrated appliances - this is certainly a huge 'WOW' factor, which you just won’t appreciate without viewing. There is a small utility room and adjoining guest WC to the side of the kitchen.
Half Landing: To the rear of this landing is the family bathroom with a beautiful bespoke suite which incorporates a 'freestanding' bath and windows to both the side and rear of the property. To the side of the family bathroom is a second staircase which provides access at the rear to the 2nd floor where you will find two very generous sized double bedrooms and each with En suite facilities
To the first floor at the front and with a few steps up from the half landing you have a large open space with its original spindle balustrade, coloured leaded roof light and Velux. You have access to both bedrooms, which again we consider both to be double in size and to the front left hand corner of the landing is a second family bathroom.
This is an amazing family home, in an extremely popular residential location, we strongly recommend an early viewing to fully appreciate.
