Full description

Thought to date from circa 1790 and to have been built as a residence for the staff of the original Sharples Hall, is this freehold, detached, stone family home which importantly, is not a listed building. Enjoying an enviably discreet position and benefiting from no passing traffic, the stunning character home benefits from private gardens and gated access to the driveway. PLEASE NOTE the family home is accessed from Blackburn Road onto Andrew Lane, and then turn right onto Old Eagley Mews where the vehicle entrance gates can be found at the head of the cul de sac and the property is on the right hand side.

During the ownership of our clients the property has undergone many improvements including: the installation of a superb kitchen, creating an open plan kitchen / dining / family room which has an abundance of natural light and has created an ideal setting for family living.The accommodation is particularly well presented throughout and in the kitchen/dining/family room there is a wood burning stove, as there is in the lounge which also enjoys a beautiful central chandelier, there is a large first floor floor landing, three good bedrooms, a beautiful white bathroom suite with roll top claw foot bath, and a separate shower room. Externally there are pretty lawned garden areas to the front, a neat garden area to the side set behind a low level stone wall and the main garden area is very private in nature with exposed stone work, a summer house and is designed for all year round enjoyment and easy maintenance.

The family home benefits from wonderful character and period features throughout including a feature port hole window between the lounge and family room, high ceilings (particularly upstairs), feature (unused) fireplaces upstairs, exposed stone and brick work etc. However contemporary facilities such as a modern gas central heating boiler, double glazed sash windows and a security alarm are all in place.Previously planning permission has been granted for a ground floor extension to create a porch, and guest WC etc. This permission has now expired, but an application could be made again. Therefore there is a potential for the property to be extended again in the future. All interested parties should make their own enquiries with Bolton Council planning office. The planning application number was 79818/08 .In our opinion this is an individual and superb character home, the quality of which rarely come to the open market.
