A stunning Grade II listed detached residence set in the heart of Dobcross with the added benefit of an annex which could be used as a holiday let opportunity. Ample parking and garage. Viewing considered essential. EPC: Exempt.

A rare opportunity to acquire a substantial Georgian period property situated in the heart of thriving Dobcross Village, available for the first time in decades.

Manor House at Dobcross, parts of which date back to the early 1760s is one of the best examples of classicism in Saddleworth, including large sash windows and a listed Venetian window being some of the most impressive aspects of the property. Many of the rooms enjoy open views down the valley to Dovestone and Pots 'n' Pans.

The accommodation which is over four levels offers elegant spacious rooms with period features including original beams, two fireplaces and exposed stonework, and extends in total in excess of 2,800 square feet plus two cellar chambers, a large garage and wine cellar.

The current layout includes a separate self- contained duplex apartment which has its own entrance (and address) on Woods Lane. This could be re-integrated into the main living space if so desired but could be utilised as a separate dwelling for a dependant relative, holiday let or Air BnB which is increasing in popularity.

The property has imposing elevations and is double fronted with central doorway and moulded cornicing typical of the classical design of the era. The front, Churchfields, entrance opens to the main hallway which provides access to a large though lounge with 'Clearview' wood burner (multi-fuel) and measuring over 24 feet on your right and to the left a delightful custom made 'farmhouse' living-kitchen with space for informal dining. Views from the side window extend down the valley. Beyond the kitchen the room opens to a large sitting room with dual aspect, working fireplace and space for formal dining. The sitting room opens out to a morning room with double doors leading outside to the stone terrace ( history describes this room as a 'summer house' prior to incorporation into the main house). There is a good sized office/ occasional room and also a useful boot room linking back to the main hallway.

To the first floor is a spacious landing and overall there are four bedrooms. The two in the main house are large doubles and overlook Church Fields. The main bedroom also enjoys far reaching views down the valley from the side window. The bathroom has roll top bath and separate shower and there is a separate wc. Stairs from the first floor landing rise to the top floor attic rooms which are both vast spaces with one side providing a bedroom/ storage and the other a large double bedroom.

The cellars, one of which is a laundry room, are both good sizes and can be accessed from the main hallway and are ripe for integration into the main house.

The self-contained apartment is accessed via a hall and stairs from Woods Lane into a large double aspect dining kitchen, which leads through to a cosy lounge with that iconic venetian window giving far reaching views, two bedrooms and bathroom with bath.

Externally the Manor House offers mature gardens to both front, side and rear, the front has the perfect vantage point to watch the band contests and at the rear of the property there is a delightful seating area enjoying open views with well stocked flower beds and a rockery. There is driveway parking for several vehicles and a large integral L shaped garage.

Dobcross is arguably the jewel in Saddleworths crown. The Square - just a stone’s throw away - hosts the annual Whit Friday Walk, Rushcart Festivals, and passing Morris Dancers and there are countryside walks on your doorstep.

This truly represents a unique opportunity to acquire one of Dobcross' most iconic landmark buildings. A real historical gem which offers superb further potential.

From our Uppermill Office proceed along the High Street and over the mini roundabout into Wool Road. Take the first left turn into Sugar Lane and follow this road until you reach The Swan Public House and then into Woods Lane where the property can be found on your left hand side on Church Fields
