Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The House:
Beech Cottage originally dates back to around 1904 and was purchased from the Water Board roughly 30 years ago by the current owner. This home offers something a little different with its extensive gardens, great parking and superb location. There is a quaint stone-built outbuilding, used to store garden equipment and includes a log burner! The overall plot size of approximately 1.3 acres combines formal gardens with a substantial area currently used as a paddock.
Beech Cottage provides a level of privacy which is seldom on offer but equally benefits from Pal Mall Cottages (a row of 4 cottages) within a comfortable distance, removing the feeling of isolation. The home would suit a variety of buyers who will undoubtedly wish to settle for a long stay in these rather splendid surroundings.

The Area:
Rivington is a small village within a country park and positioned just outside Horwich. The location benefits from a low density of residential homes, but is located just a matter of minutes from a small town center with an abundance of shops and services. Horwich has good access to transport links (a train station on the main line to Manchester and Junction 6 of the M61). Whilst these facilities are close to hand, the country parks of Rivington and the West Pennine moors are literally on the doorstep, and will no doubt suit those who enjoy outdoor activities (and maybe considered a paradise for dog walkers!).

Directions:
Leave Horwich along Lever Park Avenue, past Rivington & Blackrod High School onto Rivington Lane. After a short distance there will be a row of cottages by the name of Pall Mall on your right-hand side and Beech Cottage is the detached home just at the end of these cottages. Continue just past the front and turn into the driveway to the right and staying right you will arrive in Beech Cottage’s driveway.
