  • Bedrooms: 6
Dowry Head is a magnificent stone built manor house believed to have farmhouse origins in the 17th century. Gracious and elegantly appointed with superb period features and with its 13' high drawing room one of the finest and most impressive principal reception rooms we have seen. Stone mullion windows, large fireplaces and exposed beams, views from every room and rambling accommodation; all virtues of the best of family homes. The house is perfect for entertaining and has seen many a garden party during our client's ownership. The grounds extend to about 2 acres, are superbly landscaped and are approached initially by a bridle path and ultimately by a long gravelled gated driveway which sweeps up to the front of the house with a turning circle and leads on to the garaging to the rear and enjoys a further right of way through to Helmshore Road via a farm.

The local sporting facilities include a dry ski slope, shooting range, swimming pool, cricket club and Rossendale Golf Club is in the valley below. The grounds around the property and moorland beyond offer the opportunity for walking, horse riding (livery and stables down the lane) and outdoor pursuits. Ramsbottom has a reputation for good dining, bistros and specialist shops whilst Bury has its famous market, the terminus for the Metro-Link to Manchester City Centre and all the main national retailers. Good local schools are close by and slightly further afield, but within reach, are the renowned Bury, Bolton, Queen Elizabeth and Manchester Grammar Schools.
