Karen Ritchie Estates are delighted to be instructed with the sale of Waltham House, these striking period properties located on West Street rarely come to market. The oasis like location makes this superb property a must, boasting extensive space, an abundance of original features and most conveniently positioned to take advantage of all local amenities.

Tucked away on a private drive giving access to residents only, the location is on the doorstep of the renowned Bolton School, a number of reputable sports and fitness clubs, restaurants, leisure and shopping facilities and strikes the perfect balance between access to rural areas coupled with an excellent transport infrastructure.

With accommodation set across four floors Waltham House has been in the hands of its current owners for a number of years and would now benefit from new ownership to undertake the project of fully restoring the home creating an imposing residence for quality, versatile living.

The front of the property is complemented by a raised terraced seating area which can be accessed via steps from the private drive, at ground floor level the first of two garage facilities offers an off road parking benefit.

Enter through the main door into a sizeable entrance porch which sets the tone of charm and character that this impressive building offers. The extensive welcoming hallway in turn gives access to all main reception rooms, the morning room, kitchen and utility space.

Throughout the property the period trademark features of high coved ceilings, deep baseboards and fireplace features have been preserved. The principal reception room set on the front elevation benefits from a large light enhancing bay window and is complete with a central feature fireplace,

Adjacent to the principal room is a second reception area and again in keeping with all space throughout this property is of generous proportion and complete with classical features.

The morning room, kitchen and utility facilities are extensive and provide the perfect opportunity to the create a contemporary kitchen/dining and living space. Currently the kitchen houses a range of floor and wall mounted white finish units with contrasting work tops fitted with a double circular stainless steel sink unit and complete with plumbing to accommodate a range of appliances. These facilities are located at the rear of the property to take advantage of the quiet relaxing retreat created by the established shrubbery which borders the rear garden, a paved seating area provides the opportunity to enjoy this secluded outdoor space.

For convenience a small wc has been created in the utility area.

The bedroom and bathroom facilities are all located on the first and second floor, access to the upper floors is via a charming traditional design staircase with a beautifully carved newel post and curved handrail.

The property offers five bedroom facilities all double in size and well lit. Three ample sized bedrooms are located on the first floor, there are a number of wardrobe/ storage units built within the rooms and two additional wc facilities which could be further developed. The first floor also accommodates the family bathroom comprising a bath with overhead shower, a washbasin set within a vanity unit and wc.

The second floor, offering two further bedrooms, benefits from a number of Velux skylight windows and could create the perfect annex living accommodation as a small kitchen facility currently exists. This could be adapted to additional sleeping space, en suite, dressing room or home office as required.

From the main entrance hallway a door leads down to the lower floor where a large space cellar work room is located and access is available to the ground floor garage, all offering the opportunity for creative development.

The rear of the property gives access to a second external workshop and additional garage facility.
