Main Description:

The House:

Positioned towards the head of a very popular cul-de-sac and within a corner plot which offers generous proportions. The overall size of accommodation is not readily apparent from the exterior. The home offers flexible accommodation which currently includes five bedrooms, two individual reception rooms and a dining-kitchen. It is worthy of note that the kitchen runs parallel with the dining room and lounge and therefore there is scope to create larger open plan living if this is desired. The wide corner plot also affords the possibility for further extension. The owners have achieved a good level of presentation throughout and the modern and neutral décor should appeal to a broad spectrum of buyers. We have no doubt that the location, just off Markland Hill and therefore close to Markland Hill primary school, will prove to be a very strong feature of the home both now and helping onward saleability. One of the five bedrooms is located to the ground floor and is positioned alongside the ground floor shower room. Finally, Lingmell Close has a great characteristic of a large open green area to the front of the homes which really allows the close to stand out from the crowd.

The Area: Lingmell Close is located just off Markland Hill, and is therefore situated within the heart of Heaton with good access to popular nearby restaurants and a very useful convenience store which has served the area well for many, many years. From a practical aspect the home is located around 1 mile from the ever popular Bolton School and a 'stones throw' from the ofsted rated 'outstanding' Markland Hill primary school. Commuting links can be found at junction 5 of the M61 which is approximately 3 miles away. Lostock train station which is on the mainline to Manchester and also continues through to the airport is around a mile away. The area also has access to a good variety of amenities. Doffcocker Lodge, for instance, is within 0.1 mile whilst The Smithills Estate which is currently undergoing a large scale regeneration programme by The Woodland Trust is just under 2 miles away. Chorley Old Road offers a good variety of shops and services such as dentists, doctors and opticians and many of these outlets are within around 0.5 - 1 mile. Horwich centre which is approx 3.5 miles away works hand-in-hand with the out-of-town retail park close to the football stadium and includes large supermarkets, retail outlets together with leisure facilities such as chain restaurants, cinema and gym etc. Many locals consider Manchester and the Trafford Centre an appropriate distance to shop and socialise and therefore we feel the area strikes an excellent balance of good commuting facilities, handy amenities and excellent access to pleasant countryside.



From Chorley New Road proceed up Markland Hill, passing Oakwood Drive on your right-hand side and taking the next turning on the right into Lingmell Close. The subject property is located towards the head of the cul-de-sac.
