Red Bank, Birtle, Bury


Property Description

Key features


Full description

Red Bank House was first constructed in 1800 by a wealthy industrialist as a principal home and is very much in keeping with the grandeur displayed in many Georgian properties of the time. We understand the property has had a somewhat unusual history, once being used as a 'size' factory for the manufacture of wallpaper paste! The current owners took up occupation in 1990 and have completely remodelled the interior of the main property and constructed a separate leisure complex housing a 23 meter swimming pool (the owners were insistent they wanted a pool to swim, not splash in!) a gymnasium and steam room together with the appropriate changing rooms and facilities. The gardens were landscaped and no detail has been left unattended, the property is now presented in breathtaking condition and yet retains much of the glamour expected in a home of this period. Set in formal gardens and ground extending to close to 1 acre approximately 12 miles north of Manchester City Centre and only around 2 miles from the nearest motorway junction making commuting to most northern towns and cities relatively easy and Manchester Airport can be reached within 30 minutes opening up the rest of the UK. Principally surrounded by conservation farmland and enjoying views from the upper front windows towards the Pennines and Peak District beyond. In brief the accommodation comprises: magnificent Portico entrance, hall with stone staircase leading to the first floor, guest facilities, formal lounge, dining room, the hub of any property the kitchen manufactured and fitted by Simpson of Colne, snug, office, games room, laundry room and ground floor annex rooms, sitting room and bedroom with ensuite.
