Full description

An impressive, individual and substantially constructed six-bedroom detached stone property built around 1900 and offering extensive and flexible living accommodation arranged over four floors. The property was originally the former vicarage to Horwich Parish church; our clients acquired it around the early 1990s and have undertaken significant modernisation and also added a substantial detached double garage incorporating lower level store rooms. In total the accommodation is in excess of 6000 square feet and will ideally suit the large family, those working from home or otherwise requiring more generous accommodation to house a close relative etc. The property is set within a generous and established plot of just over half an acre in a commanding main road position with extensive parking and convenient for travel via major road, rail and the motorway network to neighbouring towns and cities, and the excellent Middlebrook leisure and retail complex, together with the country parks of Rivington and Haigh are all within practical distance. Clearly this is a unique property which an intending purchaser may wish to adapt further to perhaps incorporate a business use. Viewing is therefore strongly recommended although strictly by appointment.
