Main Description:

The House:

Whilst 2 Oakwood Drive has been very well cared for, the kitchen, bathroom, décor and floorcoverings will be regarded as dated and so the home is well suited to a buyer wishing to finish a home to their own choice and specification and we would ask that a viewer fits this criteria.

Offered to the market for the first time in many years and positioned in a much larger than anticipated plot is this four double bedroom detached home. It is important to note that the property is located close to Albert Road West and the plot measures at just under 1/4 acre. The overall internal size is not readily apparent from a simple drive by and so an inspection is to essential appreciate the extensions and room sizes on offer. In its current form there is sizeable family accommodation, but it is worthy of note that the plot would support further extension should larger accommodation be desired. Available with the great benefit of no onward chain and an early viewing is certainly advised.

The Area:

This stretch of Oakwood Drive connects with Albert Road West and is a very popular section of the road. Many people look to buy within this vicinity due to the popular local schooling both at Markland Hill, and also towards the private schools that have served the area for many years with Bolton School just under a mile away. There is a vibrant social aspect to living in the area with popular local pubs / restaurants and racquets / sports clubs. It is worthy of note that Lostock train station which is on the mainline to Manchester is around 2 miles away whilst the nearest motorway junction is just around 3.5 miles away and therefore the area attracts many people who wish to work or socialise towards Manchester. For those who enjoy spending time outdoors there is a local nature reserve surrounding Doffcocker Lodge which is ideal for dog walking etc and is under half a mile away, whilst much broader countryside can be found from the top of Old Kiln Lane onwards which is just over a mile away and becomes something of a gateway towards the West Pennine moors and Smithills Estate which has recently been purchased by The Woodland Trust.
