Main Description:

The House:

An exciting opportunity to purchase a superb family home located within the heart of Heaton and amongst a prestigious group of houses. The excellent level plot is approximately ¼ acre with a south-facing garden enjoying a peaceful and private aspect. As it stands the home is nicely proportioned; however, there have been further plans granted for significant re-modelling and extension (see CGI images). The changes would be to both the ground floor at the rear and to the first-floor level. This would create a home in excess of 3,000 square feet and would allow a purchaser to finish the dwelling to their own choice and specification.

The high calibre address is able to support and uplift in value and the planning reference number is 05381/19. It is noteworthy that the home, as it stands, offers five bedrooms, flexible living accommodation and is presented to an excellent standard, but the planning potential also provides an extra dimension to what the property currently has to offer. The accommodation of the extended house would include:

Extended kitchen/dining/living room. Enlarged entrance hall. Ground floor guest suite. 1st floor bathroom. 3 additional 1st floor bedrooms, 1 with en suite and dressing room.

The Area:

Heaton is one of the town's leading residential areas. Greenmount Lane has long been regarded as a highly desirable address and plays host to a good number of individual, sizeable, detached dwellings. This property is located on what many would consider to be the best side of the road as it enjoys a south-facing aspect that is not overlooked by neighbouring properties. Bolton School, which is a very popular, independent school is just over half a mile away whilst a broader selection of state-run primary schools serves the area, such as Markland Hill County Primary School and St. Thomas of Canterbury which are around half a mile away.

The area is well served for social and leisure activities with several good pubs and restaurants within easy reach along with several gyms, golf and racket clubs. For those who enjoy spending time outdoors the country parks of Rivington and the West Pennine Moors are also within relatively easy reach, ideal for running, dog-walking and cycling etc. Lostock train station, which is on the main line to Manchester, is just over 1.5 miles away whilst Junction 5 of the M61 is around 3.5 miles away. We therefore find many people who work in Manchester choose this area as it is a suitable distance for commuting.

All in all, we feel this location offers many family friendly characteristics which results in residents often staying in their homes for a good length of time.
