Main Description:

The House:

Gingham House is available for the first time in just over 20 years and represents a rare opportunity to purchase a property within this immediate location. The home itself is located in an excellent wide plot with mature woodland to the side and rear which offers great privacy. We feel it is important to note that the home has accommodation over two floors but could easily function as a true bungalow if required given that the main bedroom and bathroom are positioned to the ground floor. The well-tended gardens to the front, side and rear are a great addition to the home and we feel the property is likely to suit a vast array of purchasers. As it stands, there are three individual reception rooms (lounge dining room and fitted study) plus an impressive modern dining kitchen. The four bedrooms are spread over the two floors and are all a double size. The garage is just single story and there is also side garden space should an onward purchaser wish to expand the accommodation on offer (subject to the usual consents).

The Area:

Gingham Brow is located just off Chorley Old Road (nearly opposite the entrance to Fleet Street) and is regarded as a high calibre part of the town. A key factor to homes within this area is their ability to provide access into the countryside which is practically immediate from Gingham Brow and ultimately provides access to footpaths leading into the hills that provide an impressive backdrop to the town. Whilst these rural links are so close to hand the town also functions brilliantly as a commuter belt towards Manchester benefiting from access to several train stations linking to the city together with junction6 of the M61. The commercial centre itself includes a pleasant range of mainly independently owned shops and services, and within around half a mile of the subject property there is childcare at nursery level whilst the town has several primary and secondary schools. Nearby, the Chorley Od Road is a bus route links Bolton to Chorley and commercial amenities are enhanced by the Middlebrook retail development which is close to the previously mentioned motorway link, is around 1.5 miles away and includes a wealth of large outlets together with restaurants, cinema, gym etc. All in all we feel that the area offers a family-friendly package and will also suit those wishing to settle into retirement.
