'Speakman House' is a six bedroom character home and 'The Old Barn' is an equally impressive five bedroom property and looks over to the adjacent lake. The properties are located on Warrington Road just off A580, adjacent to Bents Garden Centre and with easy access to Manchester, Liverpool and the motorway network. The properties would be ideal for two families wishing to live together in close proximity whilst having full independence, or alternatively could be easily separated with individual driveways (provision previously foreseen). The gardens extend to approx 2.3 acres and have been lovingly maintained over the years to provide a delightful haven in which to lose oneself, (and have been dezoned from green-belt around 10 years ago opening up a potential future development potential - potential purchaser to make own assessment). From a commercial point of view this fine property could also lend itself to a number of ventures, including a guest house, restaurant or possible development subject to necessary planning permission.
