Full description

The House:
Whinfell on Albert Road West is a 'text book' example of a distinguished property in Heaton. It was constructed during 1908, with high decorative chimneys, a steep roof covered in green slate and large bright rooms with high ceilings. The internal dimensions are in excess of 4000 sqft and the impressive plot is approx. 0.7 of an acre. The home retains very many original features and consists of six bedrooms, three living rooms and the possibility to create a large open-plan kitchen with day room within the existing outbuildings. There are impressive gardens to both to the front and rear of the house, a large driveway and Whinfell is bordered by mature hedge and trees.

Planning permission has been granted for two further detached homes within the rear garden both of which would be in excess od 2500 sqft. Planning Application No. 96451/16. The potential for development makes the home ideal for families wishing to live close to each other but nonetheless within their own dwelling. A property developer may also be interested by the option of modernising the existing property together with the proposed new build opportunities. Equally, the home may be retained as one impressive unit located within generous and mature grounds.


The Area:
Whinfell occupies the land forming the corner of Albert Road West, Greenmount Lane and Ernlouen Avenue in Heaton which is regarded as one of the town's leading residential areas. Many people choose to buy within the area due to the variety of sports and social links coupled with the good access to Bolton School. A very strong feature of the town is the access junctions 4,5 and 6 of the M61, together with mainline train stations. Manchester city centre is considered by many locals as a suitable distance to shop, work and socialise.

Directions:
From Chorley New Road proceed up Greenmount Lane and Whinfell will be on the top right hand corner of Greenmount Lane and Albert Road West.
