Main Description:

The Residence:

Fall Birch Cottage is an intriguing three-bedroom detached home which is positioned to the corner of Chorley New Road and Fall Birch Road. The property was last sold approximately ten years ago and our client was drawn to the property due to the uncommon characteristics and great potential on offer. This potential has now been fulfilled as the home has been the subject of a significant programme of modernisation and so the decor, fixtures and fittings are of a modern style. Originally a turnpike toll house, the property became The Fall Birch Sweet Shop before being converted into a private residence.

There is remarkable privacy, gained by the mature hedge border and the gardens wrap round two sides of the home. We do feel the home would suit a family or those downsizing from a large property but wishing to retain good useable room sizes and high calibre location.

The Area:

Fall Birch Cottage is steeped in history and stands in a prominent location. For those wishing to commute towards Manchester, either for socialising or work, it is worthy of note that the motorway and rail links are just under 1.5 miles away, as is the Middlebrook retail development with its many shops and services is a similar distance. Horwich centre offers a more traditional group of commercial outlets and the surrounding countryside which is a consistently strong feature of the area can be accessed by proceeding to the top of Fall Birch Road at which point the roadway becomes unadopted giving access to a number of footpaths, High Rid reservoir and the countryside beyond.



From the Bee Hive roundabout proceed towards Bolton, take the second turning on the left into Fall Birch Road where the subject property will be immediately to your left.
