Main Description:

An imposing and large dwelling offering particularly versatile accommodation and located in an exclusive and high calibre area.

A key feature to the property is the access which is provided via a north and south gate; the north of which links to Chorley New Road and the south, which is a long sweeping tree-lined drive, adjoins Ravenhurst Drive which is a cul-de-sac with traffic lit access into Beaumont Road. This access allows for easy commuting, either towards motorway and train connections or towards Heaton.

The property has date stones of 1739 and also 1978 when the property was extensively rebuilt and thereafter extended. This been completed in a sympathetic manner with good use of random stonework.

It is worthy of note that the freehold property is connected to mains services and does not include a water meter. The accommodation includes four living areas with the addition of an open-plan kitchen, living and dining area and a great variety of storage rooms. There is also an excellent recently fitted second kitchen featuring built in appliances, to aid extra catering needs. To the first floor there are six bedrooms served by three bathrooms. The master suite is a particularly generous size and includes a modern en suite fitted approx. Two years ago and is an excellent feature of the home. We would expect the property to particularly appeal to growing families wishing to settle within the area for a good long stay.

The Area:

Raven House occupies a high profile location close to the junction with Beaumont Road, Victoria Road and Chorley New Road (along The Lane). Being positioned here allows excellent access to Cleveland’s Prep School, Markland Hill and Lostock County Primary Schools and Bolton School; in addition the school buses routes for a number of other well-regarded schools are all within easy walking distance of the property (eg Bury Grammar, Bridgewater School, Westholme etc).

For those working closer to Manchester, commuting is particularly convenient with access to Lostock train station (approx. 1 mile) and also junction 5 and 6 of the M61 (approx. 2.5 miles) . Many locals would consider Manchester, and the Trafford Centre as an appropriate distance to work, shop and socialise but please note that there are a good variety of sports clubs within the immediate area (eg several tennis and golf clubs and a David Lloyd all within approx. 2.5 miles) as well as number of popular pubs and restaurants.

Day-to-day shops and services can be found at the out-of-town retail and leisure complex close to the Macron Stadium and also within Horwich town centre there are a good quantity of independently owned shops and services including butchers, fishmongers, cafes and pubs.



From the traffic lit junction with Chorley New Road, Beaumont Road proceed along Beaumont Road and turn left into Ravenhurst Drive where the electric gates will be to the left.
