Full description

A most impressive Grade 2 listed stone built property dating back to the 16th century and forming part of the original Smethurst Hall, offered for sale with no onward chain. The property is located just off Smethurst Hall Road in a 'tucked away' position and is accessed via a York Stone and cobbled driveway and yet is convenient for both Bury and Rochdale town centres and of course the motorway network providing an easy commute for most North West cities. The accommodation is in excellent condition and despite having all the up to date modern conveniences, retains many of the architectural features recognised by the local authority as historical importance. The current owners have enjoyed the house for the last fifteen years and in that time have replaced the kitchen, shower room, heating system and many of the windows - they are moving as their children have now left home and they require 'something a little more manageable'. We understand that prior to our vendors occupation the property was extended in keeping with the original building to include perfectly matching, double glazed period mullioned windows. At this point the attic was also developed with staircase access with loft space and three-piece bathroom. The property has matured gardens, ample parking and integral garage, in brief the accommodation comprises: entrance porch, inner hall, lounge with electric stove, second sitting room with electric stove, dining kitchen, utility room leading to the garage and guest W.C. To the first floor, there are four double bedrooms (with en-suite to master) and a modern shower room, along with staircase access into the roof which contains loft bedroom (including a three piece bathroom).
