Bradshaw Cottage, Bradshaw Road, Bolton, BL2


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
Situated in the idyllic grounds of approx 3 acres stands the most splendid detached country manor known as ' Bradshaw Cottage'. Steeped in local history and understood to have originally built for the accountants of Bradshaw Hall. There is a feeling of grandeur as soon as you drive down the sweeping driveway catching a glimpse of the stunning grounds. The main house still retains many of the original features such as stone mullion windows, wood panelled doors and casings, ornate ceilings and coves too mention just a few. Surprisingly though it isn't listed so offers as much potential to alter as you should wish ( We can't imagine anyone losing the features mind!) and planning permission has already been granted for a large single storey extension to the rear.

In addition, there is a large detached two storey building which includes a double garage, large ground floor gym and separate living quarters which we feel would suit the older child still at home or parents wanting separate accommodation but still on your doorstep! This includes a large open plan lounge with dining area, double bedroom with en suite shower room, walk in wardrobe and a large fitted kitchen.

The main house oozes charm as soon as you enter via the porch into the grand entrance hall/snug with feature staircase leading to the first floor. Further ground floor rooms include a formal lounge, sitting room, garden room and well appointed breakfast kitchen. There are two basement rooms ( one is a spacious utility room and the other would suit a variety of uses ie. office, playroom, guest room etc). The first floor has three double bedrooms with the master enjoying a sumptuous 3 pce en suite wet-room, completed by the period family 4 pce bathroom.

The grounds to this property are a real joy and have to be seen to be appreciated!! Well tended lawns on various levels surround the property with fantastic views beyond over the scenic open countryside including a sunken garden, covered patio areas, outside swimming spa and jacuzzi to name a few! There is a separate driveway leading to further land that may offer other uses subject to the relevant permissions.

The property is located in a highly sought after semi-rural location which borders scenic open countryside at Bradshaw. It also benefits from being convenient for both Harwood and Bromley Cross local amenities including popular schools at all levels, local shops, bars and restaurants, not to mention the train station for those wanting to commute. Great country walks are on your doorstep including the jumbles country park.

This is one property that really must be viewed to be fully appreciated as they rarely come to the market!!
