Property description

Four Bed Detached Period Home - Two Huge Plots - Excellent Development Potential - Large Gardens To Front & Back - Semi-Rural Horwich Location - No Chain & Vacant Possession

Oakroyd is a unique four bedroom detached home ideally positioned on an elevated plot in the highly sought after area of Foxholes Road. The home was originally constructed in the 1912 boasting excellent brick work and internally still retains many of its 100-year-old period features. The new purchaser would be expected to undertake renovation works and the plot size also lends itself to the possibility of a double storey extension at the rear. The extensive attic room also has the capability to have three extra bedrooms to create at least a 6 bedroom family home.

The property comprises of; entrance porch leading into the hallway with original Victorian windows, spacious lounge with bay window overlooking the front and separate dining room with patio doors to the rear. There is a fitted kitchen leading into the rear utility with shower room, storage room and access to the rear. Upstairs there are four double bedrooms which have been complimented by large three piece bathroom suite.

Both plots combined are 2600 sq.Yds. And would be ideal for development for another dwelling. The plot currently has a detached double garage with driveway to the road. There is currently no planning permission for re-development, however the plot is not in a conservation area so built within the necessary constraints planning should be achievable.

The property is located on the doorstep of the rolling Rivington countryside with views of the Pike from the garden. Situated in a quiet idyllic semi rural location yet only a short drive to the centre of Horwich and numerous local amenities, pubs and restaurants. It has excellent access to the M61 motorway, Blackrod & Horwich Parkway train and Middlebrook Retail Park. There are also a number of highly regarded local schools within close proximity, including Bolton School, Rivington & Blackrod and Blackrod Primary School (Ofsted rated Excellent).
