Main Description:

The House:

A rare opportunity to acquire a large seven double bedroom and four reception room detached dwelling with just under 3900 ft.² of accommodation. The property has retained a host of period features which complement the unusually large rooms which in their own right are further enhanced by the high ceilings. The house is built of an era typically associated with the grand properties around Heaton and would be ideal for those seeking a large family home.

The position within Albert Road is another positive characteristic as there are bungalows to the rear aiding the sense of privacy whilst the front aspect overlooks the entrance to Carlton Road and therefore feels a little more open than would otherwise be expected. Impressive views are also gained from the South facing second floor window.

This property is available for the first time in approximately 40 years and an early viewing is considered essential.

The Area:

Heaton is one of the town's leading residential areas. Albert Road 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 one of the choice plots within the road. Bolton School, which is a very popular, independent school is just under 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 also nearby.

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 around 2 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.
