Situation And General

149 Manchester Road, is a substantial detached residence located in the popular village of Greenfield, and which benefits from open bridal walks and stunning countryside scenery. Greenfield is a village in the Saddleworth parish of the Metropolitan Borough of Oldham in Greater Manchester, England. It is 4 miles east of Oldham, and 13 miles east-northeast of the city of Manchester. It lies in a broad rural area amongst the South Pennines, and borders the Peak District National Park.
The village is a popular residential spot due to the countryside setting and array of local shops and eateries, there is a recently constructed Tesco supermarket and a recently constructed Canal basin along side the Huddersfield Narrow-boat canal waterways. Greenfield is popular with the commuter due to its excellent links for Manchester/ Huddersfield and Leeds via frequent local railway station and the Northwest motorway network (M60/M62) being only a two minute drive way.
Saddleworth is a popular tourist destination due to its Yorkshire style buildings set in quaint village settings, the opening of the Huddersfield narrow boat canal, saw a change in popularity with its open waterways, locks and passing narrow-boats, making its popularity soar.
Schooling within the area lies high on the Government league table, with the main Saddleworth schools being awarded a language Academy status, further primary schools are within each village and the local school in Greenfield.

House And Gardens

The property is of a red brick construction under a slate roof, which has in very recent years, been almost doubled in size by tastefully constructed extensions. The property commands an elevated view front Manchester road, benefiting from open aspects across towards the hills of Saddleworth.
The internal accommodation was designed around the family needs of the current owners, and I am told by Tony & Christine that they got a tad carried away and the expense soared, but the results were worth it. Tony explained that due to his nature and meticulous business sense having been awarded 'Entrepreneur of the Year' by the National Business Awards, in 2004, that the house needed to reflex his personality, thus the results are staggering making this home fitting every box for 21st century living. When they bought the property in 2004 the property was half the size and required a modest update, the property now in its present form comprises of - entrance vestibule, reception hallway housing a feature staircase leading to the first floor, there are two reception rooms, fabulous open plan dining area leading into a state of the art central kitchen area, open areas leading into the wrap around conservatory, utility room, ground floor W/c, gymnasium, an impressive exercise swimming pool (ideal for the keep fit fanatics). To the first floor area five double bedrooms, family bathroom and shower room. The master suite houses a dressing room and spacious en-suite (Wet room).


The property benefits from gardens areas to all sides, and boasts a large driveway with lighting offering off road parking for several vehicles, probably due to being a party house, the driveway leads to an integral garage which provides storage facilities to the front due to the gymnasium having been converted within the former garage space, (this could easily be converted back if required). To the side of the property is a plastic shed and a pathway leading to a most appealing patio area where a set of steps rises to a flat Astro turf lawn area which is of a generous size, providing a lush green surface which is so easy to maintain. The astro turf area has flood lighting to allow use in wet condditions and in the dark evenings of winter.
This property certainly does require internal inspection as we Estate Agents say, but seriously..... It really does.

To the side is a window, the room has flush lighting and a further door leading into the reception hallway.
