Kristian Allan are delighted to have taken instruction to market this impressive family home originally built in 1842 and set in 3 acres of land with southerly views from the rear towards Manchester and the Cheshire Plains beyond.
Located within the 'Forgotten Valley,' yet only a 10 minute drive from the many amenities and attractions of both Bury and Ramsbottom, with good motorway access is this fully renovated and surprisingly spacious property, being the original farmhouse to Plant Close Farm, and boasts a breath-taking mix of original features with modern embellishments.
Externally the property has a tree lined drive and parking for multiple vehicles. Stables for two horses with a feed and tack room all serviced with power and water, conveniently adjacent to a bridleway. There are 2 paddocks in addition to garden and a choice of seating and play areas to enjoy the stunning scenery on all 3 sides.
Entrance into the property is through a recently converted stone porch which also houses a downstairs WC. Accommodation starts with the dining area with natural stone flooring and staircase to the first floor with a modern glass balustrade. There is access down into the original cellar with vaulted ceiling and flag stone floors.
The kitchen is accessed through the dining room. The units are traditional ‘Shaker’ style in keeping with the farmhouse feel but the matt grey finish with contrasting white granite worktops give it a modern and contemporary vibe. Two sets of patio doors to the side of the property allow access out onto the terrace area.
There is a separate utility room to the front of the property just off the kitchen with matching cabinets having an oak worktop to compliment the honey oak double glazed windows.
The kitchen extends into the family room which is an amazing addition to an already magnificent home. The large glass apex floods the room with light and really makes the most of the stunning views all year round with its under floor heating.
There is a separate spacious lounge accessed from either the kitchen or the dining room which has a cosy feel with plush soft furnishings.
To the first floor there are 4 double bedrooms and family bathroom. The master bedroom with exposed stone wall is to the rear of the property and has an en-suite shower room with sliding solid oak door. Loft access from the landing, via a pull down ladder to a large partially boarded loft area.
The family bathroom is light, bright and airy and comprises of corner shower, wc, sink in fitted vanity unit and a feature freestanding bath which is positioned to allow you to watch the stars whilst soaking your troubles away.
We feel this is a lovely family home in a fantastic location and highly recommend an early viewing.
