Walmersley Road, Bury, Greater Manchester


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
A most imposing Edwardian Villa, we understand dating from 1902 situated in a prominent position on Walmersely Road approximately 1 mile from Bury town centre and within easy walking distance from Clarence Park and The Lido. Marchbank is one of a pair of grand semi detached homes undoubtedly constructed for wealthy industrialists of the time to exacting standards and to, what appears to be, no expense spared basis. There is a grand bay window to the front of the property, ornate guttering profile, the original landing stained glass window still survives and the entrance hallway is one of the most beautifully preserved we have seen. The current owners are to be commended on their presentation and how they have cleverly blended modern conveniences with features of the Edwardian Era. There is of course gas central heating, the boiler was replaced around 7 years ago and a modern kitchen and bathroom. However the property does offer a good deal of potential to further expand the living accommodation if required. There are two large, full height basement rooms with separate access to the outside, which could be utilised to create a cinema room or maybe a large kitchen and day room, there are numerous possibilities. To the outside there is a front garden and driveway, side path and rear patio garden, with steps down to the basement and access to the single detached garage. The property is leasehold with a residue of 999yrs remaining.
