Full description

Fabulous semi rural location within Smithills Country Park/Estate. This stone, semi detached cottage originally dates from circa 1700 and is a grade 2 listed building. Tucked away in a courtyard style location the owners will enjoy wonderful open views observing abundant wildlife in this natural habitat and yet has the convenience of easy access to local shopping facilities, the town centre and motorway links.
The property offers approximately 2250 sq ft of living space that is presented to the highest standard and our client has spared no expense in the various extension, total refurbishment and complete re fitting of the entire property. Many original features of timber beams and original stone walling are successfully blended with contemporary styling and other requirements of modern day living. The result being a fine home, certainly quirky and possibly similar to a beautiful duplex penthouse apartment (without the encumbrance of crowded neighbors), with a lovely large patio and stunning views.
