What the Vendor says:
Rivington Lodge has been home for nearly 30 years, where we have enjoyed great levels of privacy, but in an area where we can easily access schools, shops and restaurants.
As the family has grown up we have kept ponies and been able to enjoy a rural life in this beautiful setting on the edge of Lever Park with its many bridleways. Kingfishers frequent our large pond, and many other birds and wildlife, which occasionally include deer, visit our grounds.
The large gardens have provided great enjoyment, and we’ve integrated a greenhouse and excellent log store together with a detached stone outhouse, which we use for our hot tub. The barn has also been a great asset in terms of storage and flexibility and whilst we have considered its conversion we wished to retain our private setting. All in all this has been a great family home and whilst we will be sad to leave we feel it is only right that the property can be enjoyed by a fresh growing family where we are sure children will generate great memories which for us has recently been capped off by our daughter hosting her wedding reception in a marquee within the grounds.
What the Agent says:
If you are in search of your forever home then Rivington Lodge could certainly be the home for you. The home is set within approximately 1.5 acres of formal gardens and surrounded by open fields. The home itself includes five double bedrooms (four en-suite), and four reception rooms, plus the brilliant, large and contemporary glass conservatory. The gross external footprint is approx 470 sq m/ 5059 sq ft
It is also worth noting that there is a superb detached stone barn with a ground floor footprint of approx. 1,572 sq ft/1 46 sq m and integrates a large double garage, the barn area itself plus stables and a mezzanine level used as a workshop.
The home is full of character and offers a great balance of large formal rooms, which you would expect for a property of this style, but also family friendly areas such as: A snug with large log burner, playroom/study and a cellar, which is used for wine storage, includes a sauna and further shower and wash room facilities. Versatility is one of the keys to this home and it has it in abundance.
Some important amenities to note are the two closest train stations. Blackrod & Horwich Parkway train stations are approximately just under 2 and just over 3 miles respectively. Junction 6 of the M61 is just over 3 miles away and links to the Trafford Centre and Manchester/media city.
